Kmart: The Shop that Tries to Please Everyone by Will Kay

February 6, 2013


Where can you find dry dog food next to men’s white leopard-print underwear? Why, Kmart, of course. Hence, it has been a source of confusion for me that Kmart even exists. Recently however I have come to understand the delightful consumerist power of Kmart. As someone very much entrenched in the internet and its niches […]

‘Competitioning’: An Existentialist’s Paradise? by Will Kay

October 6, 2012


Entering competitions obsessively (henceforth known as ‘competitioning’) is an enterprise known to few of Gen Y. You might say, “Rightly so, who is moronic enough to pit hope against logic.” I once have would too have said, “Rightly so.” Yet, I have recently fallen into the banal vortex of competitioning. Much like other disorienting activities, […]

“Look at my peeeeeenis!”—Tacey Decides if Babysitting is for You

September 17, 2011


They emerge out of their bedroom in five-minute intervals after conspiring together new strategies to tear me away from my laptop. So far I’ve seen the tooth fairy, Batman, a mullet, a monster, a tooth fairy with a mullet, and a penis. 8:30 could not come soon enough. That sweet, sweet time in a babysitter’s […]

August 31, 2011


Today is the last day of the freakiest Winter ever (at least in Melbourne). Freezing one day, sun beating down the next, with weather like this the You’re Dripping Egg staff are seriously looking forward to Spring. While we are celebrating the coming of Spring, we’re also commiserating the loss of some of the finer […]

Mudfest 2011: “The Happening” by Hilary Binks

August 22, 2011


What ‘happened’ last night… I can honestly say I had no idea what to expect from The Happening. The 60s graphic of orange-hippy flowers on the Mudfest website told me nothing. The accompanying description (or lack thereof) excited my curiosity; “Colour. Music. Improvisation. Paint. Bodies. Art. Movement. Chaos. Calmness. Kinesis.” Was the audience going to be improvising? […]

True Bloooooooooooooooooood

July 11, 2011


I’ve been to donate blood twice before. Both times the whole thing was ordered, professional, and kind of boring. But this week, third time was lucky and I had an actual fun time down at the Red Cross. Here is a blow-by-blow account, otherwise known as my first favourable review (spoiler alert!) in a while. […]

“You’re Dripping Egg” readers, comment on the BBC documentary “Guys and Dolls”, and the Real Doll phenomenon, here!

June 18, 2011


In 2010, editors Will Kay and Matilda Dixon-Smith were shown Guys and Dolls, a documentary about life-size “Real Doll” sex dolls, by a friend. Back then, we were pretty effected by the whole phenomenon. Davecat became a reference in our everyday vernacular. The program, developed by the BBC, had a powerful impact. We all agreed that […]
