5 of the Best Diets

A glorious history of my fat fighting failures.

Wendy Hargreaves runs the 5 of the Best website, and I was meant to do something deliciously indulgent for her, like 5 of the Best Mocktails or 5 of the Best French Toasts in Melbourne, but instead I went another way. Thankfully her passion for indulgence overflows to her contributors, and she let me get away with this extremely off-topic top five. Hopefully this helps other people stuck on the seemingly endless diet treadmill.

 

The Gaypocalypse Creative Process (via Instagram)

I spend too much time with Hammo. I think I've accidentally written 3 shows... #Gaypocalypse

Spicks and Specks Deleted Scenes

I've created a playlist of deleted scenes from Spicks and Specks on my YouTube channel. There's another playlist of special moments and behind the scenes fun. Sometimes there is just too much fun to fit into one episode!

Spicks and Specks Episode 3

This week we have a talented pianist, a soul siren, one of Australia's most accomplished comedians and Luke McGregor. Fans of The Shelf will be familiar with Luke's awkward charm, and now it's time for the rest of Australia to discover just how hilarious he can be. 

McGregor completley takes over the show, possibly to disguise the fact that he knows almost nothing about music. I may have deprived my brain of oxygen whilst cackling at McGregor, to the point where I completely lost my composure.

Spicks and Specks Episode 2 Flashback and Remix

As well as the appearance of rock legend Suzi Quatro, everybody is raving about the ethereal voice of Helen Croome (aka Gossling) on this week's Spicks and Specks. If you missed it, you can still catch it on iView and here is Helen's blisteringly good game of Substitute from YouTube. Also in this post, is DJ Speckta's second Spicks and Specks remix, dominated by the haunting voice of Gossling, and way down the bottom is a deleted scene captured when we thought they had stopped recording (mostly about Lawrence Mooney's junk)

The Magnificent James Fosdike, Gaypocalyptic Artist

Gaypocalypse Poster SmallIf you've been to this website, you've no doubt already seen the poster for Gaypocalypse, but let me take you for a walk through just how it all came about.

First of all, I approached James Fosdike, who has created such great posters for Wil Anderson and Justin Hamilton as well as his stellar work creating art for podcasts like The Shelf, Little Dum Dum Club, I Love Green Guide Letters and The Poofcast.

We chatted about the basic concept, talked about what would be involved, and settled on a price. I tend to think quite visually, so as well as telling him what I wanted on the phone, I emailed James a basic layout of what was in my head, and it looked like this dreadful mess here -- I drew this on my iPad.
