Please don’t reboot Charmed

TV writer RHIANNON POPE takes a look back at cult 90s/00s TV show Charmed and why it doesn’t need a prequel reboot. Charmed was a television show in 1998 to 2006 following three/four sister who find out they’re witches destined to fight demons and other things that go bump in the night. Similarly to Buffy The Vampire Slayer the show was big on girl power and women in control but it also promoted the power of family and sisterhood which is why the Charmed reboot in the works is A Giant Mistake!!!!!

Current affairs writer CLAIRE WEBBY catches us up on where we are at in Australia in the marriage equality debate. Marriage equality in Australia has been a hot topic for a while with it first sparking debates in 2004 when John Howard’s government introduced the Marriage Amendment Bill. With more countries all over the world making marriage equality legal, one must begin to wonder “when is it our turn?” I mean, America (out of all places) managed to pass the bill even with 83% of the population being Christians.

BY SKYE D’ERCOLE Ah, music. Listening to it is great. But I bet sometimes you wish you didn’t listen to it so much. Yes, I’m talking about the times you listen to a song you haven’t heard in months, maybe even years, where you get flashbacks of memories so vivid that you become traumatised and don’t listen to that particular song for another lengthy period of time. Remember that song that you listened to on repeat with your girlfriends for a solid 6 months? Remember how that song was yourRead More

Moving out for a rock n roll party

West TheBarton Brothel Party. Controversial name, but they really are rock n roll, after all. Just have a listen to this bloody good new single. And they’re from Adelaide.

The band was one of the standouts of Bigsound last year with the growling vocals, flavour for the rock beat to sink cool ones and show everyone your armpit hair. Check out the new single ‘Moving Out’ and then check the touring dates below.   Saturday March 25 The HillsRead More
