Linklove: I knew that kid once

After spending far too much time cramming theories and law case studies into our heads, another Media Studies exam is behind us journ kids. **happy sigh**

From a class of 300 dazed and weirdly dressed first years, we’ve been battered and slimmed down to sixty something – slightly less dazed and probably even more eccentric looking.
Now that we’ve chosen our production specialisations (design, TV etc) and becoming all impressive, I keep being amazed by the work coming out already.

So, I thought I’d share some of the awesome people I suffer through long Friday afternoon classes with.
One day, when I’m sitting in my dream radio station/recording studio/coffee shop in Brazil/Canada/India I hope I’ll see their names in all the best places.
But for now, here’s a little linklove. Go check it out.

Blogs/ writing

Limit Break!
My mate Brendan not only has indepth knowledge about every meme and cultural reference known to man, he has a wicked sci-tech and gaming blog as well as a regular column on eGamer.

Xand writes clever things about sport, technology and cool internet things. I wish I could get his dedication to Twitter and current affairs… also, his ipad.

I’ve never given Gonzo writing a proper try, but I’m glad Hank did. Plus, he manages to look relaxed in underwater photography!

Button it up
Chante says the stuff that polite people at dinner parties don’t, and she’s always open for a discussion. Nice.


I’m crazy about pretty much all the work that’s coming out of our photojourn class, but these are some of my favourites.

Robynne’s bubbly and adventurous personality really comes through her snaps. I can’t wait for her (and her camera) to work through that bucket list.

I’m always amazed at how beautifully structured and conceptualised Mia’s pics are. Some awesome magazine/organisation is going to snap her up, mark my words.

Jess Poulos Photography
Jess’s awesome event photos always make me wish I was there… even when I was:)


Cityscape, Go!
This is some of Ben’s 8bit coolness, but with him heading off to circle the world soon, I’m sure we’ll see his name on more websites and things soon.

Paperback Writer 2.0
Davey does music journalism like a boss and his list of past interviews makes me so jealous. happy jealous.

One last one..

Black Pepper Plum
Carina is a qualified chef & already working on her first cookbook. Can you say impressive?

So there you go, some awesome people to keep an eye on. There are lots more that I didn’t have space for or don’t know about, but oh well.
Good to know I’m in such cool company:)


The first two pics are coyright Mia van der Merwe, the last two Robynne Peatfield.
