Posted 4:11pm Tuesday 2nd March 2021 by Erin Gourley

Orchards called on uni students to make money picking and packing.

A lot of businesses limited the Read more...

It was a sunny summer Saturday, one of the last before I returned back to dunners this year. Of course, this Saturday was not out of the ordinary as it involved some pretty hectic day drinking and the shenanigans that go along with it. This story begins after a good old-fashioned game of truth or Read more...

We had known each other in high school. Back then, I was the captain of the boys' team, She was the captain of the girls' team.

Well, this is it. The last Bone Apple Teeth. It’s been such a joy to cook and write for you over the past year.

Booze Reviews | Boundary Road: Chocka Hopa

Posted 2:00am Friday 2nd October 2020 by Chug Norris

I consumed my slab of BrB: Chocka Hopa on Tuesday night. I’m not sure whether it was the atmosphere the snow created or the stunning quality of the brewing, but the first can of beer really hit the spot.

This is the final issue of Critic for 2020, and my last Critic forever.

EDITORIAL: We’re About to Have the First Māori OUSA President in 22 Years, and That’s a Huge Deal

Posted 3:01pm Sunday 27th September 2020 by Sinead Gill

Otago students are never going to have a student executive that is fully representative of all of their interests. This is ultimately because representative democracy is, for the most part, a sham.

Vape Review | Simply Salts Mango

Posted 9:45pm Thursday 24th September 2020 by Critic

Today my Co-Star told me “you were born to make history”, and that really stuck with me. At first, I felt overwhelmed with the pressure my Co-Star bestowed on me. How am I, a loser from Dunedin, going to make any sort of emblematic change to our historical narrative? The pressure seems Read more...

Moaningful Confessions | Cruise Club Daddy

Posted 9:43pm Thursday 24th September 2020 by Critic

When the Critic asked us to spill our most scandalous sexcapades I didnt know where to start. I still don’t. So many stories, so little words. Do I start with the 3-way in a sauna which ended with more than sweat dripping down my body, or the 12-man orgy in which I could only make out the Read more...

Posted 9:34pm Thursday 24th September 2020 by Caroline Moratti

Hangovers are tricky. Once you get past the nausea, the shitting and the headaches, rapid hunger sets in. Whilst Macca’s and KFC are iconic options, I really, really don’t want to leave my house, even in a car (and no I don’t want to pay $20 on UberEats for a $3 cheeseburger). So, Read more...
