If you were involved, weren’t involved but wanted to, or just want to see what goesinto making at a big event like this, you may well appreciate this short behind the scenes documentary on the event.
Looking for a recommendation for someone Northside.
I am happy to go to the salon, though if there’s someone who’ll travel over the border without charging extra that’d be great.
I don’t want a formal up do or anything fancy, just to have my long hair nicely styled and a bit braided back.
I am [...]
We just got some rather unfortunate news from one of the sellers at last Saturday’s Hustle & Scout markets, after reaching out to street artist Abyss.607 to paint some jackets for her to sell, some bugger stole one.
The beauty of this however is that these jackets are unique and highly recognisable. So if you see [...]
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 [...]
I’m needing help on finding a local dressmaker.
I had engaged a dressmaker three months ago but I’ve just been informed that they can now no longer supply me with the fabric I am after.
I am needing 7 bridesmaid dresses to be made before my wedding in January 2014.
I have a design that [...]
Looking for a good beauty therapist for waxing, facials etc. The last girl I had left her work and my new one (which will remain unnamed) ripped the skin off of my arm :(. Would love to here all of your experiences and advice.
I live south side so anywhere there would be preferable.
A couple of years ago I used riotACT to recruit some Canberrans for a photography documentary/portrait project. Here is the result, finally online. See if you can spot anyone you know.
A really beautiful girl with a real sad story. Her words appear below. Tattooed Canberrans reveal the stories behind their ink: http://danielspellman.com/2013/09/tattooproject/

Facebook brings word that you too can get your zombie on with like minded folk this November.
Welcome to the first annual Canberra Zombie Walk.

As with other cities in [...]
Trying to find a place in Canberra, preferably on the North side, to get my in-fills done.
So far the one place I tried didn’t sterilise their equipment and did a horrid job.
The Canberra Times has been thrown a bone about Ikea’s interest in the new Majura Parkway Estate.
Normally Canberra is too small a market for an IKEA. But we do have a transient population, lots of money, and a love of Scandinavian style.
For what it’s worth last year I wrote a poem about IKEA for Bad [...]
We got sent some great snaps of Gale trying to keep warm by Rioter Nicole:
I thought you might get a laugh out of these photos. While passing the Queanbeyan court house yesterday, I saw someone had outfitted the statue of John Gale with a more appropriate hat.
He looks pretty great.

We’re looking for a wedding photographer. We looked at the responses to this post from 2012, and scanned the websites of the photographers referred to and many others. It seems there is a strong prevalence of a particular kind of wedding photography. It’s either contrived, or has gone right through contrived and come out the [...]
An odd combination of signs: are they renaming Lonsdale St, in which case perhaps it should be “Hipster Alley”, or are they just trying to confuse tourists?

Featuring works by local and interstate artists, PINup, the latest exhibition at the ANCA gallery opens tonight, 22 May.
Canberra’s very own talkshow In Canberra Tonight happened again last night, and again I missed it because I am a bad person.
Johnboy however, was in attendance last night and not only to tell people the hottest stories from the past month, but also it seems to be crowned the king of the Skywhales. The crown [...]
