Posted: 2019-08-13 | 7 minute read

The year was 2016, I had been presenting Fusion Delusion on Eastside Radio for 5 years and it was time to try something new.

On Happiness Road - Movie Review

Posted: 2019-08-05 | 3 minute read

This is my fourth installment of movie reviews whilst travelling to and from Europe. For the previous reviews, check out posts tagged with film. On Happiness Road Taiwan (2017) 7.1 on IMDB I really hooked into the animations this trip, to the point where half the movies that I watched were animation.

The Shawshank Redemption United States (1994) 9.3 on IMDB Ah, the Shawshank Redemption. Despite being such an old movie, I have never watched it until now. I had always wanted to, but never had the time. I guess I was fascinated with the stupidly high IMDB score of 9.

Extreme Job - A Movie Review

Posted: 2019-07-21 | 3 minute read

Recently I got back from my first trip to Europe, which turned out to be everything I thought it would be. But actually: Today’s post isn’t really about Europe at all. The thing about Europe is it’s so damn far away from Australia, so I actually watched a fair amount of movies on the plane this time, which was a first for me. I put this down to the 22.
