The (un)officially, official THEME SONG of:

Dear kids, Please, don’t grow up. These words might be falling on dead ears. Our society is one that drives the child out of its children before they enter high school. But I have hope. I have hope that there are still a few kids out there, maybe more than a few, who are seeing, […]


Initially, I was going to make this post a somewhat philosophical exposition on a relatively plausible theory drawing on why god does not exist. But I’m not gonna do that. If you’re curious, the basic premise of the would-be post is this: If God was the causal link, the initial Creator, nudging the universe from non-existence into […]

A few nights ago, I experienced what I can only describe as a slew of bad dreams. Unlike a video, the slew didn’t hit me linearly, one after the other. I fucking wish that happened. Instead, they hit me in the same way light travels – as a chaotic spray of pixelated particles, gushing and […]


As some of you might already know, I’m starting a business. To be honest, it’s been a lot trickier than I thought it would be. As it turns out, there’s a lot to think about when starting a business. And above there being a lot to think about, there’s a lot to actually do. I thought […]

Sometimes I believe that I am the Second Coming. I.e., I believe that I am the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. Sorry if some of you find that offensive. I can assure you that, in my saner moments, I understand, completely and totally, that I am not a divine King, a King of Kings. I know […]


Before I start this post, I want to make something clear: What I’m about to say has absolutely nothing to do with equal rights. I.e. equal pay, equal job opportunity, voting privileges, etc. I know that it might seem like it does, but it really doesn’t. It’s a bit more complicated than that. It’s actually […]


There are three things that I know are certainly true: You’re going to die. I’m going to die. Nothing really matters. There are three things that I know are certainly false:  You’re alive. I’m alive. Nothing really matters. Here’s a cat. Humans-are-weird.


Many of you, my loyal follow-button-clicking-people, already know that I’m a big fan of Russell Brand. I’ve fanned his words and thoughts and eloquent gibberish all over this blog, many a time. (That sounded horribly dirty; it wasn’t meant to be.) A little while ago, he started a television program entitled, Brand X. Basically, the […]


I sleep a lot. I go to bed early. I wake up late. I’ll make sure to get 8-10 hours per night. It doesn’t feel that long. When I was 14, I contracted this disease known as chronic fatigue. Because I was so fit at the time, the transition (from not so sleepy to perpetually […]

If you didn’t know, apparently I’m starting a business. I’d say ‘started a business’. But the truth is that not much has happened yet. My website is still reading with lorem ipsums and carpe diems. My logo hasn’t been finalised. My team haven’t yet all been in the same room, at the same time. And […]


We’re a species that pouts to impress and isolates to feel loved. We’re a species that eats every other animal, but also empathises, and writes books on empathy. We’re a species that frames its survival instincts in words, that bottles its emotions in labels. We’re a species that empathises, but feeds wars and mocks peace-loving […]


A few weeks ago, I turned into an elf. It was a strange experience, which you can read about by clicking the above link. I won’t go into it again, cause it’s already there. Instead, what I wanted to do was talk about another experience I recently had. But before I do, I want to […]


In other parts of the world, people perceive Australians as being a laid-back, ultra relaxed, uber friendly, warm and cuddly sort of bunch. Well, world – we ain’t like that. World, Australian’s are not white Rastafarian-bro’s. Nope. Sorry. Actually, we’re quite the opposite. Believe it or not, Australian culture is quite closed-minded and extraordinarily judgmental. […]


Humans fascinate me. I mean, we’re an interesting bunch. We are probably definitely the oddest of all the species. One thing that I find particularly peculiar about the sapiens is that we pride ourselves as being logical, rational, methodical creatures. I guess, ostensibly at least, that’s fair enough. The human prefrontal cortex is pretty huge […]


Some people who have used the drug dimethyltryptamine, otherwise known as DMT, have reported that they experience this sensation known as astral projection. This experience is one that a scientist (controversially) found transpires in people just as they’re about to die. DMT, he claims, is naturally released into the body, just as a person is […]


What I’m about to write isn’t new. It’s already out there, and in much more detail than this loose rant. Nevertheless, I’m going to write about it anyway. And I’m going to write about it because it is important. Drug laws that treat drug addicts like criminals are absolutely fucking stupid! I did a little […]

I am depressed. Not right now. Right now I’m quite convivial, actually. I’ve got a bottle of water, a delicious cup of coffee, and I’m writing. Shit’s great right now. But generally, genetically, and psychologically speaking – I experience the unrelenting illness that is depression. I’ve been a Depressed One since I was pretty young. […]


Every day is a struggle for you. I know it too well. It’s a struggle that exists solely within your skin. It’s in your bones. It’s in your hair. It cramps your toes and curls your spine. It tenses your muscles and fatigues your spirit. And I hate it. I hate what it does to […]


I gave up believing in love in the tenth grade. Scratch that, I began loathing love in the tenth grade. She was blonde. Thin but voluptuous. Big lips, seductive eyes, a perfectly even tan. You know the sort of girl I’m talking about. Her laugh, like a child’s – raw, magnetic, hypnotic; it would leave […]


Fashion is, whether we ourselves think so or not, a big part of our lives. Why? It’s because even if you’re not at all fashion conscious, not in the slightest, your choice of dress will influence people’s perception of you. Your dress influences the picture that the outside world will form of you. You know […]


Back in high school, my nickname was ‘losty’. I hated the name back then. When people used it, they’d usually use it sneeringly, as a juvenile invective. It doesn’t bother me so much now. Actually, it doesn’t bother me at all. Not that people use the nickname these days, but when I look back at […]


In Australia, there are three main methods of public transport: Trams, buses, and trains. In Melbourne, we recently introduced a brand new ticketing system – Myki. The old system was fairly simple, but also a little archaic. So yesteryear. You’d buy a paper ticket. A daily ticket. Or a ticket that’s valid for two hours. […]


Have you ever noticed that one hundred people can pay you a compliment and you’ll brush them all aside, but then, when just one single person says something a bit mean to you, your entire world collapses? Why the fuck is that?  For a short while I thought I was the only one this happened […]


Empathy is a hell of a drug. Isn’t it? It’s the ability to ‘trip’ on the emotions, feelings and thoughts of an-other. Unlike sympathy, it requires you to directly engage with someone else’s insides. You’ve got to walk in the other person’s shoes. You can’t just sit back on your pillow of pleasantness, laugh on […]


If you’ve read here at HAW, you’d know by now that I’m all for posting thoughts that run against the grain. I reckon it’s important that people can express themselves on matters such as this, even if that means that it might piss some people off. And I reckon it’s important because it might help […]
