Matilda Dixon-Smith: It’s Arrested Development

April 8, 2013


You have to be crazy not to love Arrested Development, television’s most subtle and nuanced comedy. It’s the little comedy that could; after a superb three-season run on Fox, the series was cancelled due to poor ratings, but years later, word of mouth, DVD sales and a hefty cult following urged Netflix to pick the series […]

The 2011 Primetime Emmys Virtual Experience by Matilda Dixon-Smith

September 19, 2011


People, I do all of this for you. I had to endure the unbelievably irritating “Emmys Backstage Live!” in order to have what could be considered a FULL Emmys Virtual Experience. Can I tell you, there’s a reason why some people don’t get good jobs, and instead they get the job of being locked in […]

So six months ago was Australian Fashion Week (slow I know) where this wonderful creation, below, from the Australian label Romance Was Born was presented. Romance Was Born, designed by Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett, who are known for their fantastic sense of fun and fashion whimsy. Hitting the pop-cultural nail on its scattered head: […]
