Cookin' Up Love | Issue 4

Posted 3:04pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Lovebirds

Each week, we lure two singletons to The Captain Cook Hotel, give them food and drink, then wait for their reports to arrive in our inbox. If this sounds like you, email critic@critic.co.nz. But be warned--if you dine on the free food and dash without sending us a writeup, a Critic writer will Read more...

Ethel & Hyde | Issue 4

Posted 3:00pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Student Support

Our bastard landlord from last year chucked out all our stored furniture, even though the new tenants had said it was sweet with them. We didn’t even leave it in the house but had made a massive effort and put it all really neatly in the shed outside. When we came back to get it the week Read more...

The Moths

Posted 2:55pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Charlie O’Mannin

One day the moths became people. Sheds and undergrowth and houses were suddenly jammed with limbs and heads and bodies. Cocoons popped, disgorging viscous fluid filled with half formed ears and teeth. Dusty corpses filled the windowsills, blocking out the light like mummified curtains. Many Read more...

Vitalogy | Issue 4

Posted 2:50pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Prof's Wood & Ruddock

This is an inflammation of the urethra, or external urinary passage, and is generally occasioned by an impure connection; although a disease of a similar character may arise from having connection with a healthy woman during menstruation; and it is sometimes produced by leucorrhea (discharge) in the Read more...

Ray in Dunedin

Posted 2:42pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Radhika Raghav

“What! Satyajit Ray in Dunedin!” was my reaction when Prof. Radner, my thesis advisor, told me about a film society that was screening three restored versions of Ray’s films. I was new to Dunedin and the first couple of months in the city, on a philosophical level, offered me a Read more...

What if the University of Otago didn’t exist?

Posted 2:36pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Danni Pintacasi

Dunedin. Population: 127,500. Number of university students: 20,000. It’s fair to say that students make up a sizable chunk of the Dunedin population. The University brings in young adults from near and far, and with them their money. Let’s face it; McDonalds wouldn’t nearly be as Read more...

ODT Watch | Issue 4

Posted 11:11am Sunday 19th March 2017 by Charlie O’Mannin

ODT Watch has been contacted by humans (unusual for us) asking whether we doctor the ODT’s headlines to make them funnier. We would like to formally deny this slander. The ODT is funny enough without having to change a thing. Case in point: What followed was a whimsical tale of an Read more...

Clothes – fibrous, erotic, warm

Posted 10:13am Sunday 19th March 2017 by Lucy Hunter

We’ve all been there. You walk into a function in your assless rubber pants with a ball-gag in your mouth, slathered in mayonnaise and holding a bunch of torpedo beetroot, and everyone else is in smart-casual blouses and slacks. You just can’t relax the whole night. That’s because Read more...

The Hell Hole | Issue 3

Posted 3:14pm Sunday 12th March 2017 by Jessica Thompson

I was baby-sitting my little sister that afternoon and we decided to go to Discovery World. She loved the giant piano but got pretty bored with everything else so we paid to visit the Butterfly room. There was no one inside. My sister ran off to gawk at the glass boxes containing caterpillars and Read more...
