    Change Your Mind

    You make a big decision, only to reverse it to do something you truly want to. Someone tells you something so compelling, that you completely change your opinion on an issue.

  • I suffer from Alice In Wonderland Syndrome

Reviews

  • Food: Three Williams

    Three Williams in Redfern with it’s polished wood, exposed copper pipes and expensive lighting fixtures, is everything you want your future adult loft apartment to be and more. It’s trendy, so trendy in fact that on the menu the B&E isn’t even called a Bacon and Egg roll but rather, ‘The Merchant’. Read.

  • Film: The Wind Rises

    Jiro Horikoshi, hero of The Wind Rises, spends much of his time with his mind firmly elsewhere, focusing on pages of meticulous calculations or staring off-screen, lost in reveries of flight that border on hallucination. This sums up the fantasy of Hayao Miyazaki's last film as director, neglecting the folk tale magic of Spirited Away, Princess M... Read.
