It’s Super Bowl time which means (to us) a halftime show of high spectacle and lots of pyrotechnics. How did The Weeknd stack up against the legacy of roof jumps and left sharks? A New York Times doco on Britney Spears’ conservatorship has everyone talking, and us reflecting on our own judgements as we watched her rise and fall. An English parish meeting on Zoom has gone viral for all the right reasons, while Grand Slam tennis is providing the fashun hit we need. And a new social networking app called Clubhouse is making waves. But what the hell is it? Meanwhile Myf is banging on about Game Face, while Zan is tearing through the pages of Tana Douglas' rock biography LOUD.
