Yay, hooray and happy day! Just like that, issue 91 is out in the world, with loads of awesomeness to please your eyes and grey matter. For starters, there’s a bunch of local illustrators taking Aussie slang quite literally – think cool-as-heck budgie smugglers and a dog’s breakfast, for instance. You’ll also find a debate about whether being late is OK, the history of some of our favourite board games, and a crafty lass who coined the job title ‘forensic jeweller’. Speaking of rad careers: we’ll introduce you to the multicultural development officer for AFL Victoria; a couple who’ve made greenery their business; a fellow publishing comic books about all-indigenous superheroes; and a sex worker-cum-comedian who we’d quite like to make our best friend. There are plenty of new life skills to pick up, as well, like ways to decorate a rental home or run a climate-friendly garden, plus an easy-peasy guide to car maintenance. On top of that, you’ll find the usual laughs and curious views of the world around us. So, what are you waiting for? Hop to it!


It’s possible to redecorate without losing your bond.
