Keeping up with the Kontentsphere

Friday 11th August 2017

Has another week passed you by with nary a fleeting glance at the weird and wonderful world of online content? Get the goss with another handy installment of Keeping up with the Kontentsphere.



Steven Adam’s beautiful, plush moustache has been shaved and the world - including (former??) stache-bro Enes Kanter - is aghast. Fortunately he looks lovely either way, and is presumably just reminding us all of the importance of not getting stuck in a rut, however iconic that rut may be. Thanks Steven!


And just when you thought Jacinda #wombwatch 2017 was the worst thing that would happen this election.

As you will surely now know, the shit hit the fan this week with Metiria Turei resigning as Green Party co-leader, leaving in her wake a scrum of politics nerds and media ghouls scrambling to either pin the blame or take the credit.

Did she jump or was she pushed, should she have said this should she have done that blah blah blah. Whatever you make of it all, it's a grim and very loaded turn of events that further proves my theory that the only person that will actually ‘win’ anything in this election is Patrick Gower, who is most likely still trembling softly with pleasure as we speak.


SPEAKING OF POLITICS: Everyone’s favourite kooky right wing eccentric Mike Hosking has been selected to moderate all three of public broadcaster TVNZ’s election debates and for once we all - even Winston! - agree that it is bullshit. 

Thankfully though, help is on the way: a petition asking for Hosking to please stay away from democracy is approaching 20,000 signatures as we speak.


Emerging from the shadows in which she has lurked for the entirety of Donald Trump’s presidency so far, Taylor Swift appeared in court this week to counter sue a DJ who allegedly stuck his hand up her skirt at a meet and greet. Ew.

While no joy should be taken in this very grim and serious matter, it has still escaped no one’s attention that the court room sketches are…

...Great! Good luck Tswift.
