The Future…

August 18, 2009


Well hello there everybody. Long time, no content.

As many of you are aware, we have been toiling away in the NOTR bunker, trying to get a fresh new crib and a whole bunch of new ideas hammered out. We’re getting close to being ready now, and the plan is to re-launch at our own dot com by the 28th – which for those keeping score, is the 1st birthday of NOTR.

So if you’ve been wondering what to make of kyle and jackie-o aka the worst humanity has to offer aka proof that humanity is regressing, or you are unsure if costco is truly going to save us money or simply increase the prevalence of shitty, non-local products across a wide variety of markets, if you can’t believe that Tony Abbott’s daughter called him a church-going homosexual loser, hell if you’ve just been bored and have watched all the free porn on the internets, then relax, because we’re almost back.

Some of the things to look forward to:

  • more music reviews – from cds downloads to gigs, warehouse parties to wax, we give you the skinny.
  • more film reviews – whats good, bad or uglier than amy winehouse when she’s fiending.
  • local specialised ‘tours’ – giving you the hard facts and key details that your average write-up can’t.
  • guest writers – from some of the local talent, shit, submit something and it could be you getting no money, and less fame.
  • news – as always we’ll be bringing you a uniquely northside take on the world’s events.
  • ‘presents’ – a search engine friendly name for illegal downloads and leaked music.
  • merch – oh yeah, we’ll be dropping it like its hot… which it may be.

as well as a selection of other cool shit that we haven’t come up with yet.

Stay tuned for the drop, and the new location. Tell your friends, it’s gonna be fun.

NOTR crew.


Living Proof My Mum is Easy…

July 22, 2009


Clothing label Cotton On has released a line of children’s tshirts featuring risque, sexually themed slogans.

I’m yet to actually see a kid sporting one of these ‘controversial’ tshirts, but apparently they’re causing quite a stir.


Breaking News: Bitches dont know bout my famous glasses

July 16, 2009


Ah not again!

I hate it when a party gets canceled! I work hard enough to deserve to get drunk on the weekends and forget my name! It grinds my fuckin’ gears when someone bursts my bubble for some horse shit fuckin’ reason.


Working on it…

July 10, 2009


Went to the Dali exhibition yesterday, not usually a fan of the big mainstream shows, actually, not usually a fan of art shows in general. I think it’s my natural aversion to supercilious, self-involved, art-fag wankers, or it could just be i don’t like crowds.

Anyway, it was better than i expected. Sure he seemed incapable of doing anything without either a clock, an eye, or something phallic, and usually flacid. There was less of his major surrealist work than i’d hoped, but some really fascinating illustrations he did while in Spain for The Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini and Cervantes’ Don Quixote de La Mancha. Plus there was a screening of Destino – the short animated film he did with Disney.

We’re also working madly to get the new website up and running, the main issue being, none of us is particularly adept at web design. Copped a new camera today (cheers Shaz) so expect lots of blurry, poorly framed photos soon (no DallasPenn at the Roots show).

Cop Performs Exorcism… Fails Miserably.

July 7, 2009


A South Australian cop has been suspended pending further investigation, after he performed an exorcism on a 15 year old kid while off duty at a Lutheran Youth Camp.

28 year old Senior Constable Roger Sketchley, and two others have been charged with false imprisonment and aggravated assault after restraining the kid and attempting to remove the devil from the child for almost 12 hours.

The weird thing is, apparently all the little dude complained of was stomach pains – there was no spinning head, no vomiting of strange coloured substances, no violent masturbation with a crucifix… in other words, he wasn’t possessed, he just had cramps.

Also, as an aside, if you google ‘exorcism’ under ‘videos’ the top result is this lame video about Perez Hilton getting punched by the Black Eyed Peas security crew, thats right, it wasn’t even Fergie, black eyeliner, new haircut and all.

By no means do i suggest you watch this, unless you really have nothing better to do, or you particularly enjoy watching a super-camp, hugely melodramatic blogger ranting from his bedroom…

Eff Your Weather Report

July 7, 2009

Tim Bailey gets jumped by two random squealing girls in front of a girl’s choir… and his hair looks stupid.

The giant one in the red/black hoodie looks like she could absolutely body Bailey, thus halting his rise as the go-to guest weather man.

What kind of drugs do you think these two high-pitched interlopers are high on?

Stupid Money…

June 30, 2009


In keeping with the theme of ridiculous quantities of money, NOTR presents a brief breakdown of the lottery, as inspired by the current OzLotto draw to win $90 million… (more…)

Hey, everybody, we’re all gonna get laid!

June 9, 2009


Upon hearing the sad news that Australian test cricketer Andrew Symonds  may be retiring from professional cricket i immediately changed the channel and returned to not caring about the situation at all. After a few seconds i realized that it might have been due to some hilarious alcohol fueled golf buggy incident that only Rodney Dangerfield could be proud of,  sadly though, upon further investigation and channel surfing i found that it was only the run of the mill drunk sportsman spiel, sans Rodney and the golf buggy hilarity. Shame really.


What? No Weapons?

June 8, 2009




Ah yeah, this shit is so dumb.

He’s an allegedly talented chef who’s found fame and fortune by being an enormous TV douchebag to everyone within 50 metres.

She’s a channel 9 ‘journalist’ at least partly responsible for A Current Affair, the show that actually makes you less intelligent the more you watch it.

If there was a cage involved, or they were going to have a shoot out at dawn, i might be able to care.

Nobody fux with Necro…

June 5, 2009


The chick’s tshirt says I Heart Fucking…

So just the other day US rapper Necro knocked a dude the eff out on a Perth street, outside a cafe, at 10am in the morning. I’m not sure what the deal was, but you gotta wonder who the local boy was, messing with a guy whose albums are called:

Necro, I Need Drugs, Gory Days, The Pre-Fix For Death, The Sexorcist and Death Rap.

and all this went down before he’d even had his morning coffee, the guy’s lucky he only lost a tooth, some weird, kinky shit could’ve gone down…

Perth show was cancelled, but he’ll be in NZ soon, so heads up kiwis.
