Scarfie in a Strange Land

Posted 10:41am Saturday 30th September 2017

Time is a wheel. Being someone of Korean descent who represents New Zealand on the JET Programme (Japanese Exchange and Teaching meant to improve international relations), living in Japan is a surreal experience. On one hand, their ancestors conquered mine and instituted an oppressive police state Read more...

Have Degree, Will Travel

Posted 11:41am Sunday 30th July 2017

You’ve made it. After three years subsisting on a diet of Mi Goreng noodles, the cheeky seven-dollar fat bird, and too much caffeine, you’ve proven that you’re ready to take your place in the world with a fancy piece of paper, and a crippling student loan. You’ve had some Read more...

Opinion: Donít be a Sucker Ė Vote or Get Voted on

Posted 11:21am Sunday 23rd July 2017

It’s that happy time that only comes around once every three years. ‘It was the best of times, the most shitposty of times,’ the famous proclamation tells us. A time of soap box Facebook statuses on WHY. YOU. SHOULD. VOTE. Yet, despite all the internet slacktivism about how Read more...

ACTlas Shrugged

Posted 12:34pm Sunday 16th July 2017

When it comes to politics you can never judge a book by its cover and 20-year-old Sam Purchas is a great example why. Standing at a lanky 6 foot 3 and dressed in a bright flowery suit that looks like a Coachella attendee’s LSD fuelled vision of ‘smart casual’, Sam looks more like a Read more...

The Price of Citizenship

Posted 11:36am Sunday 14th May 2017

Call me paranoid but airports always make me nervous. There is the ever-present fear that you might have forgotten something. That you might be late. That you might miss your flight having to go through yet another security checkpoint. And there was that one time when I was 19 when I was held in an Read more...

Polyamory: Why Not Both?

Posted 12:04pm Sunday 5th March 2017

Our world is different to that of our parents. While they were the first generation to pioneer the internet and begin the information era, we were born citizens. While they were the generation that maintained tradition, we are increasingly challenging old ideas. Ideas about what constitutes love, Read more...

Killing Floor 2

Posted 1:05pm Sunday 24th May 2015

Rating: 4/5 Much like the Targaryens, every time a game comes out on Steam’s Early Access, the gods flip a coin to determine whether it will be a success or doomed to fail. For every Minecraft, we have dozens of titles that remain stuck in development hell, and therefore you should be Read more...

That'll Be $4.20

Posted 1:17pm Sunday 26th April 2015

Weed, marijuana, Mary J, bud, green, pot, herbs, grass, “stuff”, “ingredients for a chill night”— whatever it is you decide to call it, it goes with Scarfies like chlamydia goes with Hamilton. Contrary to the mandatory “drugs are bad, mmkay” talks, injecting Read more...

Dying Light

Posted 5:43pm Sunday 22nd March 2015

Rating: 4/5 Much like fresher flu, zombies are hard to escape at the moment. Books, movies, TV shows, games: Dying Light is the latest triple-A attempt to cash in on the zombie craze following the giant let-down that was Dead Island. Made by the same developer, Techland, Dying Light takes Read more...

Dunedin's proposed Local Alcohol Policies

Posted 12:31pm Monday 1st December 2014

I'm sure you've all heard the saying that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. We all like to think, especially when it comes to the affairs of others, that what we are doing is for peoplesí own good - that if we could sit them down and have a chat we could sort them out and have their Read more...
