Cartilage piercing – piercer recommendations?

By 30 November 2013

Its been a few years since I’ve had any piercings done, but I’ m tempted to get another cartilage one (a daith, specifically).
Last time I had mine done it was at Justin’s studio / with Justin at Redpath, but since then I believe he’s shut down, and Freestyle no longer does piercings.
I know Redpath is [...]

Well, I assume workmen. But there’s only one in the picture.
TAMS have started on the Civic Christmas tree!
“The spectacular 21 metre high Christmas tree is a great Canberra tradition and will again be the centrepiece of Civic Square in the lead up to Christmas,” said Darran Quade, Acting Senior Manager of Property Projects and Services, [...]

On the human brochure

By 29 October 2013

We were not impressed by ACT Tourism’s great shout out to the vacuous which went by the name of the Human Brochure. (Although we will concede that identifying top social media influencers and sucking up to them is absolutely best practice and probably explains the influx of invites in my email at the moment).
The Canberra [...]

Hairdresser working from home in Carwoola?

By 23 October 2013

About a year ago somebody who had cut my hair a few times at a salon in Queanbeyan, told me she was setting up her own small studio – in her home out at Carwoola. She duly sent me her card some months later, but by that time I’d been suckered in to one of [...]

Pedicure recommendations in Canberra?

By 17 October 2013

Hello rioters,
My feet are in a rather dreadful state, I will not overshare the details except to note that the problems are aesthetic rather than infectious.
Can anyone recommend a place for a pedicure with nice staff who are not going to recoil at my dry skin and chipped nails and make me [...]

Teen-Friendly Beautician?

By 14 October 2013

Hello Hive Mind,
I need the services of a friendly beautician for Ms Downer, preferably on the northside.
With any natural beauty now gently eroding into magnificent ruin, I rarely call upon members of this profession.  
Any recommendations?

Mens Barber and Musical Instrument Repair in Canberra?

By 23 September 2013

I have two queries which I was hoping RiotAct could help me out with.
Firstly, thanks to Geelongs last quarter capitulation, I am now required to get a mullet. No, not the fish, the haircut (yes, stupid bet to make, I know). My hair is already shoulder length so just needs to bet cut into the [...]

Best place for Acrylic In-Fills?

Trying to find a place in Canberra, preferably on the North side, to get my in-fills done.

I guess at Club X the work just comes naturally

I guess at Club X the work just comes naturally

In a way the continued existence of Club X in the heart of Civic is as comforting as other anachronisms, like the Canberra Times.
But on the way from the bank this afternoon I couldn’t help notice their hiring based on nothing but gender and looks.
How sweet of them…

Oh no, Tasmania has started on the Skywhale

Canberra’s noblest ambassador has recently made a visit to the Dark Mofo festival in Hobart and, as always, haters have ended up hating.
City alderman Annette Waddle says it is suggestive and offensive to women.

Godspeed gentle creature! Skywhale visits Hobart

Godspeed gentle creature! Skywhale visits Hobart

Canberra’s most majestic ambassador, the Skywhale, is heading down to Hobart for the weekend to appear in the Dark Mofo festival.
The Dark Mofo festival apparently celebrates “the dark through large-scale public art, food, music, light and noise” and I am wondering why I’ve never heard of it before because it sounds brilliant.

I was in Civic today looking for a somewhere to get a haircut. I saw a sign for “Hair in the City” at Centrepoint. I walked up the stairs, however they were fully booked. I noticed another small hairdressing salon called “The African Look” also on the first floor of Centrepoint.

Hey remember that ANU penis study? Well here is a fantastic write up on it.

By 1 May 2013

You probably will recall the ANU study we reported on last month. The one where they determined that women in general found broad-shouldered tall men with well proportioned genitals more attractive.
We cracked some jokes about it and had a good time of it, as did most media outlets.
However Leigh Cowart of nsfwcorp.com didn’t quite like [...]

Women who are not ladies uncatered for . . .

Still cleaning out my camera and found this poorly conceived and executed sign from Gold Creek Hair and Beauty. I imagine Chenille of Chenille’s Institute de Beaute’ & House Of Hair Removal would entirely approve of this sign.
I regret never peering inside to discover the nature of the “Treatments”.
