We may have been hearting snow, but we warmed up by thinking of hot men from the ‘80s and where they are now (tip: Fred Savage is doing voice over work for Christmas films).

New Zealand lent us its most fashionable young folk for issue 16, while our writers pondered the album that changed their life, swingers parties, how to make marmalade, and the things you shouldn’t do with your in-laws.

Nine fresh new talents came to say hello from the worlds of fashion, acting, graphic design, art and more. We also met two guys who roadtripped across the States op-shopping along the way, people and their grans, and couples who told us how they proposed.

Sarah Blasko told us her top ten things to do before she dies (including meeting David Byrne of Talking Heads), four of our writers looked back on their worst birthdays ever, and we met four groups of good people fighting to make the world a better place.
