It’s springtime in Perth and while the days are becoming warmer and sunnier the nights still provide the opportunity to snuggle up under a blanket with someone you really like. What better place to enjoy the company of your cuddle buddy than at the movies?
Thanks to the good folks at the Northbridge Piazza and the inspiration on Jimmy the Exploder, Perth nights are buzzing with the incredibly cool films of the man credited as creating the teen film genre: The John Hughes Retrospective is on now and you can find out all about it here. These photographs were taken at the opening night screening of Weird Science, make sure you check out Molly Ringwald night this Saturday!

HENRY AND AARON’S PERFECTLY ADEQUATE WEBISODE SERIES //

Friday, October 22nd, 2010 by John

Henry-and-Arron-PerthWhat do you do when no one in their right mind will pay any attention to your podcast? It’s funny, it’s about movies, everyone likes movies right? What’s wrong with people?

Well what else can you do but make a movie out of your struggle for recognition; then, realising you have no money you break the thing down into a series of webisodes in the hope that some funding body will treat you as “new’ or Cross platform or some other type of buzzword that attracts cash like shit attracts flies.

Not satisfied with their role providing semi-frequent film review podcast reviews for Cut & Paste Henry and Aaron have gone down the road of trying to actually make a movie and ended up with the a series of webisodes called Henry & Aaron’s Perfectly Adequate Webisode Series…you never know it might actually be better than adequate. The main point is that the lads have got this webisode series in a competition  and you might want to vote for their efforts. The trailer made me laugh so hard I spilled beer all over myself, which was a terrible waste of my breakfast.

You can vote once a day up until November 15
The men behind the Henry & Aaron you can check out the 60 second preview here

Last night Rhode Island native, and arguably one of Hip Hops most influential poets/lyricists graced the stage of the Rosemount Hotel, in his first ever visit Perth.  Coincidentally this will also be the last time he will perform here, as Sage announced earlier this year that after the LI(F)E On The Road Tour he will be on indefinite hiatus. Supporting Sage was Mathas, Thorts & Kadyelle, Delirious and Dj Silence

The Community and Flow Lab were responsible for bringing the great man to our town and gave us what many in Perth will be calling the gig of 2010!

As always, Mr. Brad Serls was on hand to grab some snaps for us, check them out below.

TIMO MAAS //

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010 by Nicole Norelli

Timo Maas-0531

Who: Timo Maas
When: Friday 15th Oct
Where: Ambar Nightclub

Last Friday Boomtick Events invited Timo Maas to share an affectionate mix of deep, deep techno with the people of Perth. My job as a photographer is to go in and to speak to every person in the club and take their photo. So I’ll just tell you what I see and what I came here to shoot.

The pre-performance nervous jitters kick in and then give way to an insatiatable excitement. Pumped I knock back a couple of jagerbombs, slightly vomit in my mouth and swallow ‘cos I’m hardcore and ready to rock. I slap myself in the face a couple of times to get over it: shake it off, kill a cigarette and then strut straight into the middle of an inexhaustible carnivorous and desirous crowd.

The suave, calm, collected 41 year old Timo Maas emerges with his beautiful blonde bombshell making acting cool seem effortless. All the levels go up a notch, the crowd swells; and all at once the beats kick off with a good blend of the sweet smell of something special up in the booth. Fresh faced, newly 18 year olds celebrate birthday parties and worship sweaty gyrating bodies on the dancefloor. Oh and remember: your guest dj is the guy your dancing with not just dancing for.

Things get wild pretty quickly… Hands come at me from all directions, groping. All of a sudden my camera and I are everybody’s new BFF and they want their photo taken not just by me but with me too. The ladies tear each others hair out over who’s next and who is more beautiful.  I can’t share with you the real secret to this, but let’s just say there’s an unspoken power you possess when your role is to party and work at the same time. So I just roll with it, get loose and keep shooting.

So remember, next time you see me: Work it! and show me how much you love to party.

Check out the looseness in my flickr gallery, here:
