Looking for the newest Aussie actress to watch-out for? Well, I think I’ve found her.

Opening at The Ensemble Theatre in Sydney on September 19th, 你 can catch actress Jennifer Corren starring in the new comedy “Camp.” For anyone who has ever gone camping, you’ll be able to relate to playwright Gary Baxter’s newest tale which chronicles three couples, a tribe of children, one black snake, and an esky full of beer.

Like many vacations, “Camp” starts out with the best of intensions but quickly deteriorates into a series of unpredictable encounters. Battling the elements, Jennifer...

 Firemen trying to control the Victorian bushfires this weekend
Firemen trying to control the Victorian bushfires this weekend
I woke up this evening around eight o'clock -feeling tired and irritated. Due to the extensive heatwave that has swept through most of the country this weekend, I had been unable to sleep for nearly two days. I live in the outer suburbs of Sydney (away from the coastline) and the temperatures reached as high as 46 degrees celcius today. I'm a person that prefers the summertime to winter as I tolerate the heat much better than the cold but these high temperatures were just too much to deal with.
I turned on the radio and the first news item was about the out-of-control bushfires in the state...

So recently, a fellow fanpopper Snerkie 发布 a soapbox 文章 entitled “Sydney = Overrated”. If 你 haven’t read that article, 你 may have to in order to get what I’m saying. To start, My name is Ali, I’m 17 and I live in Sydney.

Second, I want to pick a little bone with Snerkie.
You say Sydney is Un-Australian. Um... isn't that is what is so great about Australia? That that we are so MULTICULTURAL.

I really mean it! What would 你 be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would 你 be able to do if 写作 fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would 你 do if it's illegal to do a cover of your 最喜爱的 song on YouTube? What would 你 do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would 你 do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet...
