Greatest Zelda painting of ALL TIME


What an epic cartoon from my past.

I’m loving that many of the 80’s cartoons are getting ressurected and given new life 2 decades later. It happened with Transformers – whether it was done well or not remains up in the air – and it’s happening now with ThunderCats and Voltron.

Nickelodeon are taking the honours with Voltron – I really hope they continue to capture the darkness of the series – not make it tacky/kiddy like Power Rangers.

Cartoon Network are reviving ThunderCats – which is far more exciting for me! Apparently a CGI movie was in the works – but was dropped because of the series.

The trailer that has been leaked before it’s supposed 2012 release is a lot different than I was expecting. Lion’O looks VERY different – less lion and more human. I’m loving his tongue-in-cheek humour though, especially at the end.

The animated series is looking VERY anime – but that’s the trend in cartoons at the moment. Lion’O looks hot. Yes, I said it, I think cartoons can be hot. I’m disappointed with Panthro’s appearance – has he gained loads of weight and muscle? It’s as if those cartoons need the bulky dumb guy who has a large weapon – which shouldn’t be Panthro – the older, wise member of the group who’s neck isn’t as thick as a truck. Also, it looks like he’s balding in the most unfortunate way. Hmpf.


Next, I’m sure we can expect the adventure of He-Man and She-Ra to come back, no?

Hot30 Countdown so far…

I haven’t even done a week at the Hot30 yet, and already I’ve chatted to so many stars!

So far Matty & I chat with Jayma Mays who plays Emily Pilsbury, the guidence counsellor on Glee.

We had two of the River Boys from Home & Away help co-host the show mid-week (much to the gratitude of many staff members here)

Matty & I also chatted on the phone with the one and only Nelly, who spoke about his 10 year career and working with so many great artists including Kelly Rowland and Chris Brown.

Jebediah came in for a chat too!

Jessie J called in live during our show last night, and lost it when she found out a listener wanted to get her ‘heart’ tattooed on his chest!

We had Mike Posner come into the studio to help co-host the show, and found out that he loved getting a head massage with my nails. A lot.

If you want to catch ALL of what I get up to, including videos, photo galleries and podcasts head HERE



Interested to see how this one ends up

Proud Mum Moment

How bloody cute is my dog!

Laneway Festival

If you are reading this feeling sorry for yourself because you missed out on a Laneway Ticket (they DID sell out in 2 hours) then great news for you!

Chris Taylor from Chaser fame and myself will be broadcasting live from the Sydney leg of the festival this SUNDAY the 6th FEBRUARY from 5pm til 9pm!

You can catch interviews and live sets from bands such as Yeasayer, Two Door Cinema Club, Beach House, Stornoway and Jenny & Johnny to name a few.

You can catch the stream HERE

Not going to lie, some of these bands are my favourite of the moment. There’s every chance I’ll choke up, giggle uncontrollably, pass out or (fingers crossed) have the best conversations I can try to have with members of a band.

Check out a taste of it below!

Now Playing

Playing these games at the moment!



Trying to play, at least. It’s so bloody scary. Those damn necromorphs make me scream and jump so high! I can’t play it at night anymore. It’s beyond a joke. But so good!

Uncharted 2

I haven’t even had a Playstation for a year so have never played either of the Uncharted games. I knew I would like it – this game is SO my cup of tea! A few hours in and I’m LOVING IT!



I was stupidly addicted to the original GoldenEye when it was relesased in ’97 on the Nintendo 64. I’m so happy they’ve remade this game! They’ve replaced the Pierce Brosnon Bond with the Daniel Craig Bond (no complaints there) and so far, so good! Graphics are a little rusty – still N64 standard at times, but it works for the Bond style.



Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

I put quite a few hours into Dragon Quest IX and the Final Fantasy’s on DS- and this game is very similar. You have a party of young kids who excel in melee, magic and a sharp moouthed ranga who loves flame balls. A LOT of puzzle solving in the caves/dungeons. I just want to kill shit.

The yellow scarf that your character wears looks awfully like a horrific blonde mullet when playing. Hilarious!
