For perhaps the last time, “Hey folks!” To pay tribute to my own empire of puns, I’m going to ruthlessly shower you in them. We’ll start with my all-time favourite Q: What did Jay-Z call his girlfriend before they got married? A: Feyoncé.

I used to be in a band, but I hated the high exposure to sax and violins. Speaking of bands, would you like to book a gig for your band at the Woden Youth Centre? The WYC has now opened its gig bookings for the next few months. To book you can either swing by the youth centre and talk with one of the friendly youth workers (it will only take a minuet), give them a call on (02) 6282 3037 or leave a message on their Facebook page:

I also used to be a tap dancer, but then I fell in the sink. So I took up roller derby instead! Roller Derby is a magical sport where people strap wheels to their feet and fly around in circles. Come along to watch the DisHonour Rollers take on the Free Sisters on Saturday February 15. They play at the Southern Cross Stadium. Tickets are $11.75 online at Oztix or $10 on the door.

I really understand how batteries feel 'cos I’m rarely included in things either. But did you know if you pre-purchase tickets for The Royal Canberra Show online, it includes free ACTION bus travel to and from the show? Well, now you do. Expect Exhibition Park to put on a show from Fri–Sun February 21–23. Tickets are $10 for a child (six to under 16 years old) and $15 for full-time students. As mentioned above, tickets including bus transport can be pre-purchased online from Ticketek or from ActewAGL assist stores in Civic/Fyshwick. Tickets are also available on the door.

Q: Why does Snoop Lion (née Dawg) carry an umbrella? A: Fo’ drizzle. Snoop Lion and myself can’t predict the weather on Saturday March 22 for BOUNCE FESTIVAL, but we can indeed predict that it will be awesome with an extremely high chance of fun. Yes, my jokes are cheesy but I still think they’re pretty Gouda. BOUNCE is a music festival strictly for under-18s which boasts acts such as Ruby Rose, Slice n Dice, Miracle, DJ Ziggy, DJ Rush, Strangeways DJs, KG, Rocamic, The Fighting League, Jon Bling, DJ Karma, J Swiss, Yiannis and Ned Philpot. There will also be water slides, rides, foam pits, a skateboard park, powder paint, a photo booth, soccer tournaments, girls styling sessions, VIP areas and food and drink stalls. BOUNCE will be held at Stage 88 in Commonwealth Park. First release tickets are $30 + bf and VIP tickets are $100 + bf, which allow privileges such as express festival entry, VIP goody bag, VIP service area which includes complimentary food and drink and a meet-and-greet with performers. All tickets are available online at Moshtix. Please note that this will be a 100% drug and alcohol-free event enforced by hired security. For more information visit

My pun-laden heart is heavy as I say goodbye to the magnificent people of BMA.

I will definitely miss the writing opportunities, parties and of course the always encouraging and supportive email correspondence. Thank you.
