GONZO – Malthouse Theatre

Juliet Sulejmani | September 30, 2016

These days, as long as you have an internet connection, everything that exists in the world is right at your fingertips – whether you’re ready for what you’ll find or not.

Gonzo, a theatre show directed by Clare Watson, brings forward a discussion about a very popular internet search: porn. The show looks into all the aspects of porn online, with a focus specifically on how it affects teenage boys and how they are engaging with it.

Because of the sensitivity and lack of discourse around this topic, there is a lack of education in place to help these curious teenagers understand this digital world they’re living in.

The performance in Gonzo also makes it clear to the audience that most teens are informed enough to be aware of what they are doing and are able to ask the right questions concerning their behaviour.

Extensive research was conducted in the form of interviews, surveys and focus groups with over 700 teen boys participating, to find out what they know about the porn industry. All the information has been transformed into a humorous, witty and clever performance by four performers; Sol Rumble, Ari Long, Sam Salem and Jack Palit.

The show has been made to feel really relaxed and like the boys are not acting but just having a chat with each other onstage. In their chats they cover topics from working life as a teenager, to how to eat bananas properly, to Kim Kardashian’s sex tape, to how there are “heaps of Vegan’s walking around these days”, to how weird it is that animals always walk around naked, and how weird hairless cats are, but are the perfect pet for people who are allergic to cats while continuously coming back to porn and their thoughts and experiences.

Gonzo will have you laughing the whole way through, it his very relatable and will also make you think about the issues arising from this easy access we all have to porn and how it affects our lives.

Gonzo ends on October 1st, and at this time there are only tickets available for their 3:30pm session.

John Olsen: The You Beaut Country

Juliet Sulejmani | September 16, 2016

16 SEPTEMBER 2016 – 12 FEBRUARY 2017


John Olsen, The Man.

To see John Olsen, in the context that I did on Wednesday morning, I must say, was a pivotal point in my life and I hope in the lives of all the people that were there, for, as Olsen himself called it “The best dinner party he has ever been in”.

The dinner party, was a feast of John Olsen’s life’s work and titled ‘The You Beaut Country.”

A very well curated collection of Olsen’s life, passions, way of seeing the world and not limited to his experiences all translated by Olsen into paintings, journals, tapestries, ceramics and prints.

The exhibition spans over seven decades, and is sequentially arranged to give you the feeling that you are travelling through time with Olsen, who said: “I’m seeing these works a fresh, it’s exciting to come from room to room of how the change is, from the ceilings to this (paintings of Lake Eyre), entirely different from the others.”

As you move through the rooms you can feel how Olsen has developed as an artist. His work becomes less frenetic, more, gentle and reflective, especially as you arrive in the final room, where you will see his newest piece, which is being displayed for the first time.

The muse of the majority of Olsen’s work is ‘The You Beaut Country’, Australia. His love for his muse is evident in the poetic and romantic paintings hanging in the exhibition. Olsen has “a unique ability to capture the essence of the Australian landscape and it’s spirit”, thus Olsen being labelled “The greatest living artist”.

A label which, although he is very honoured by, but he says, “This doesn’t alter the condition of what the pictures are, regardless of what he is called he wants to work, get through it, wants to make it better”.

I’d like to share these words from Olsen that I will be taking away with me and holding onto…

“You must follow your feeling, you must trust yourself, I’ve never tried to be new, never, there’s far too much emphasis on newness, it’s fashionable, to  announce to a group that you’re Avant Garde is preposterous. The important thing, consider Van Gogh, Cezanne, Picasso, the aim was not newness but possibility. To see nature in it’s essence, that’s possibility.”

List: Best Burgers in Melbourne 2016

Or…(more accurately) a compilation of many lists found online and written by hand by me.

Juliet Sulejmani | August 30, 2016

If you’re familiar with The Juliet Report, it will not come as a surprise to you that I LOVE BURGERS.

About two years ago I set out on a mission to eat all the burgers, and made THIS LIST which was an amazing idea.

Any time I was going out with my friends and needed a place to go, I would google search ‘The Juliet Report Best Burgers in Melbourne’ and my list would come up.

I also love lists and challenges so it was kind of a game and who doesn’t love a game, especially one that encourages you to eat more burgers.

At the moment we are living in the time of ‘The Burger Craze’, which means that Melbourne is exploding with places where you can eat burgers. This craze, obviously, has been my favourite one so far. I did enjoy the Mexican craze, and the crazy donut milkshake craze, not so into the American BBQ craze, but burgers, burgers is in my opinion the one that will stand the test of time. Because, be honest, how can you not love a burger.

So here, I present to you my The Juliet Report List: Best Burgers in Melbourne 2016

2016 Melbourne Burger List – Printable

Print it out and tick them off once you’ve gone there.

As a disclaimer, I have not been to all of them, I have been to about 12 of them, but people on the internet have included these places in their lists of best burgers in Melbourne.

If you have any suggestions of places not on the list, please comment below and inform me. I will be documenting my burger adventures on the blog as I experience them.

For those who have asked, my top 5, in no specific order (except for No 1, which is my all-time fave).

  1. Leondard House of Love
  2. Royale Brothers
  3. Mr Burger (Fed Square Truck)
  4. Grand Trailer Park Taverna
  5. 8 Bit

You’re welcome!
