What is Ma?

Design is about finding a balance. There’s a Japanese word for the place in between – “ma”. It’s the interval of time between two things. It’s the point in the swing of a pendulum when the object switches from an upswing to a downswing. It’s the pause just between. It’s the moment just before something [...]

Lotsa laughs!

LOOK OUT WORLD ! I’M FUNNY. The funnest way to work off a big lunch in Stingray (OK, maybe second funnest) is to take your belly down to the Gold Coast Comedy Club and get it laughing it’s little self right back to thin again. Perhaps you fancy yourself a Jerry S or Chris R [...]

ALLANS MUSIC + BILLY HYDE This music store in Southport is a local institution. It has survived buyouts, the digital age, and the rowdy Southport locals and continues to be on of the places for the serious musician, or appreciator of music, to visit on the coast. There is a humongous range of instruments, a [...]

Toni and Guy, Broadbeach. Hair saviours.

There are good days, there are bad days, and then there are days when you wake up after having gone to the hairdresser the day before and don’t recongnise yourself in the bathroom mirror. Yesterday was one of those days. After a particularly horrendous trip to another hairdresser, I googled ‘Toni and Guy’ (because when [...]

Lil John

I want some Lil John with my cornflakes!

It’s always really fun to rub shoulders with famous folk. Especially when they are larger than life rappers like Lil John. This kind of entertainment is like nothing we generate in Australia. All the grillz, gold plated canes, and some of the most fun speech patterns I have ever heard made for a very entertainment [...]

Bring back summer. Please.

It’s beginning to look at lot like Autumn here on the coast, with even a few days of cardigan weather popping their ugly little heads up. We can’t believe it (and we know we shouldn’t whinge because our friends down south get it much worse than we do). We’ve been mourning the loss of the [...]

Roger Sanchez. We love you.

Sometimes in life, you get to do something really cool at work. Something that you might not have dreamed would be a part of your chosen career. Getting to interview megalicious DJ Roger Sanchez at our Stingray Lounge while he sipped a cappuccino and munched on chicken tacos is one such moment in my life. [...]

Broken Lock is our new must have.

Broken Lock is an independent locally owned and operated, handmade jewellery brand exploding onto the scene in Melbourne. Based loosely around nautical/pin up artwork and inspired by the traditional tattoo aesthetic, we love the way these pieces hang from our bodies. In a small studio in Melbourne, the works are put together from scratch. Each [...]

Uspa I love you.

It’s been a long time between drinks from the fountain of youth for this little spaQ reviewer, so needless to say that when I found out I had a spare 90 minutes to spend in spaQ this week I was over the moon. I booked in for the Uspa Concept Facial, that includes a facial, [...]

Pop Princess Kate Alexa

She is showbiz royalty. She is a babe. She is a delight to spend time with, and she has a gorgeous muso boyfriend (Wayne Pitt from the band ‘Fangs’).
