All For The Astor and The Astor For All

Film has become an integral part of Melbournian culture. Approaching its 80th anniversary is the Astor, a glittering jewel in the crown of St. Kilda’s east end, which has come to play a starring role in a growing constellation of alternative film venues in this great city. There is a banquet of cinematic appeal to be experienced in Melbourne, from food truck feasts at the Coburg drive in, to summertime open-air screenings on rooftops and in the royal botanical gardens with ever the merry bustle of folks hungry for some quality salubrious entertainment. The Astor Theatre is one of my favourite places in Melbourne. In the world, at that. However having spent more than half my life a mere five-minute amble away I may be biased. I remember meandering the oval mezzanine, tinkling away on the ol...

SMALL Talk – by Will Paine

CRAZY STORY!!! 100% LEGIT!!!! LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!!! THIS ALL HAPPENED!!! Okay, so today was a day of running errands (what a word! Errand! One of my favourites!)… I had been all around town, from the Newsagency for a deck of footy cards, to the pharmacist for some creams/ ointments (you’ll be happy to know my downstairs-heat-rash has already settled beyond belief!) Anywho, back to the point, at the end of the day I was running my final errand (errand errand errand!) and heading to the High st Armadale Post Office to mail a sudoku book to my much-loved elderly, amnesiac uncle Darian in South Australia, who still has a passion for mind games (which is why I wrote ‘I hope you have a great Christmas, from Jared’, despite my name being Will and him not knowing any Ja...

Butter Chicken – by Will Paine

INSANE STORY!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!! 100% LEGIT!!! YOUR LOSS IF YOU DONT BELIEVE IT!!! Okay, so I’m at the RMIT library doing some work/ playing doodle jump, killing time whilst waiting for my next class. The library was as packed as Hazza Young‘s Smash lunchbox and as a result was starting to get a bit too toasty for my liking, so I take off my jumper. An Indian fella asks if he can join me on this table, and I said ‘no issues mate!’ in a overly friendly and exaggerated Aussie accent. I wasn’t not too sure why I said it like that. Anywho, I watch the man as he unpacks his bag and throws his studying equipment on the desk, and am shocked to see him pull out 7 Tupperware containers of butter chicken!! SEVEN!! Anyway, I just assumed he was providing for friends, an...

Fisherman’s Breakfast – by Will Paine

CRAZY STORY, I SWEAR TO GOD THIS IS DEAD SET 100% LEGIT!!! THIS IS JUST ABSURD!!!!! Okay, so this morning I went into uni thinking I had a tute at 8:30, but it wasn’t on, which left me with 3 hours to kill until my next class… I hadn’t eaten so I ventured around the city to find a new ‘hip’ cafe where I could grab some poached eggs and smashed av. I stumbled across a joint with a sign out the front that read ‘Today’s specials: The Fisherman’s breakfast (poached eggs, Turkish bread, avocado, mushrooms, tomatoes, hash brown and a coffee for $15.90). I wasn’t too sure why it was called the Fisherman’s breakfast, because it didn’t have any fish in it and it was in the middle of the city, far away from any body of water. But I...
