EDITORIAL: Lock-a-down-a! Here we go again

Posted 1:57pm Sunday 22nd August 2021 by Erin Gourley

Lots of déjà vu around at the moment. I’ve barely processed the snap lockdown. Three days feels short, like a nice break, but it looks like it will be longer than that. Time is already starting to do that stretchy thing it does when all the days are the same. I’m writing Read more...

Editorial: I admit it, we slept on Konya Kebabs

Posted 6:12pm Sunday 15th August 2021 by Erin Gourley

Last week we were inundated with criticism for an article. No, it wasn’t the investigation into neo-Nazis. It was the kebab review. As soon as it was posted on Facebook the comments started. The people were angry. They said, amongst other things:   “WHERE IS Read more...

Editorial: The Google game is the best part of the Olympics

Posted 1:21am Saturday 31st July 2021 by Erin Gourley

The Olympics are great. I love being distracted from my life by watching people who are more motivated than me and hotter than me do pointless tasks. But the Google game that they’ve created for the Olympics? It’s even better than the real thing. At first I was confused. It seemed Read more...

Posted 3:14pm Sunday 25th July 2021 by Erin Gourley

CW: Choking, violence, sex Porn has fucked us up. By us, I mean specifically Gen Z and younger Millennials, i.e most of us who are at University right now. I wasn’t worried about this a week ago but now I am.  This week, I wrote a feature about how normal choking during sex has Read more...

EDITORIAL: Please listen to me

Posted 2:15pm Sunday 9th May 2021 by Erin Gourley

A few years ago it would have been weirD to create an entire issue about conspiracies. They weren’t that relevant. If you said conspiracies, people didn’t think of vaccines or 5G, they thought of JFK and the moon landing. It was a simpler time. These fun little conspiracies didn’t Read more...
