This is the demented web series I’ve spent the last three years of my life on! Uh, three years because having a chronic pain condition (thoracic outlet syndrome) does slow down your productivity severely but I am very proud of this show. The web series itself has been called “the love-child of the Mighty Boosh and Look Around You combined with Sesame St on acid” which we we’re pretty pleased about. If you’re into surreal, colourful, dirty and weird comedy like Rick and Morty, Monty Python, Look Around You, The Mighty Boosh, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Flight of the Conchords, The Sarah Silverman Program, Lady Dynamite, The Tom Green Show, Spaced, Green Wing or The Eric Andre Show, you might dig this.
The show slowly builds into something very weird, dark and more complicated than it might originally seem to be so I recommend sticking around for a few episodes, we’ve been told that the payoff at the ending is pretty great.
Still, if you don’t have a lot of time, maybe just check out this part of the show that we took from episode 4 and turned into a music video. I wanted the guys I work with to help me write and make a sex positive, body positive, pop/rap style comedy music video inspired by the likes of Lonely Island, Ylvis, Flight of the Conchords and a bit of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj but done on a micro-budget. We’re pretty damn pleased with the result!
If you dig our stuff, it would be absolutely amazing if you would help us spread the word and reach new audiences so that we can make a season two! There’s a whole lot more story we have left to tell!

I apologise if this is not the best update, I’m home sick with a cold, my muscles ache, my nose is dripping and my head feels like it’s clogged with mock cream. Anyway, enough fishing for sympathy!
The other day, I went to the Melbourne Same-Sex Marriage Rally with a couple of friends. Though I do not necessarily believe in the institution of marriage, nor the monogamous assumptions surrounding it, I entirely support people’s right to choose and right to equality.
From my point of view, the rally was peaceful, beautiful and had what seemed to be a really good turnout (various sources estimate a turnout from 1000 to 6000 people! I can’t find any sources that agree!) We started outside the State Library of Victoria where speeches were made, some beautiful and moving, others less so (the Labour representative was booed throughout her entire talk!) then we marched along the street all the way to the registry office where a mass illegal wedding was held. I’m usually dry eyed and bored at weddings but this had poignancy to it and I got pretty choked up.
Overall, I felt it to be a positive experience and it solidified my viewpoint that same-sex marriage is an important issue.
In other news, I recently became a member of the Australian Sex Party. As I am not an Australian citizen, I am unable to vote. However, I have lived in Australia since November 2006 and intend to continue to live here. Though I do not agree with all of the Sex Party’s policies, I like that they are explicit in their stance regarding equality, censorship, abortion, religion and so on. I think they offer just the kind of shaking up that the conservative, uninspiring world of Australian politics seems to need.
So on that note, check them out, perhaps donate to them, volunteer, become a member, even vote if you can/want to.
