The Waifs @ Perth Concert Hall, Perth

The Waifs at Perth Concert Hall, Perth, Thursday March 2, 2017. A fair few years have passed since West Aussie folk darlings The Waifs began their musical journey together, and what better venue to soak up the 25th anniversary celebratory vibes than the Southern Hemisphere’s most sonically succulent room – the Perth Concert Hall. Armed with a guitar and an impressive vocal range, Lucy Peach warmed the ears of the early arrivers. Be So Good demonstrated her strong songwriting and the venue’s superb acoustics – this was a brief but enjoyable set from the local songstress, and a fine...

Review: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D – Season 3

Release Date: 1 March 2017 Format:  DVD Blu-ray Starring: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennett We have always suspected that taking fish oil tablets may result in superpowers, and now we have our proof. When we left our agents, a load of terrigen crystals had fallen into the ocean, resulting in tainted vitamins that cause some seemingly ordinary people to develop Inhuman powers. Daisy’s (Quake/Skye/how many names does one girl need?) duty is to find the ‘lucky’ few with gifts and recruit them before they are killed by an apoplectic Inhuman. After two shaky seasons the series has finally found its stride, and...

A Veteran Leaves The Video Game Industry

Industry veteran Michael Ephraim has left PlayStation. To this day, I have no idea how STACK got invited to a PlayStation dinner in Los Angeles with the EB Games buying team, but in 2007 that’s exactly what happened. E3 was in full swing and, never one to turn down the opportunity of free food and alcohol, the director of STACK and I bundled into a private room of a high-end restaurant.
