The Loft, Wellington’s newest top secret place

The Loft, Wellington’s newest top secret place, will be the cat’s meow

A new top secret place is opening above, almost kitty-cornered to Meow. We’d like to think it’ll be the cat’s meow, but you’ll need to find out for yourself when it officially opens on Sunday, 28 September.

The Loft seems like a suitable name. It’s off the ground floor like a loft. It’s attic-like in spaciousness (actually it’s way bigger), although it’s missing the cobwebs and old wooden beams that a tall person would most likely hit their head on.

Of course, The Loft won’t be top secret for long. Once it offically opens for business, you’ll find out what this new place is all about. Up until then, you’re welcome to have a little wander round the outside of the business at 1 Edward Street, downtown Wellington (at the back of the new Captial Market on Willis Street). Or you might even fancy pushing on the big door to its premises, see if the door will budge, and truck up the big stairs for a wander — but that might be too cheeky?

If wandering’s not your style, you could look for clues on their Facebook page: Facebook/TheLoftNZ. You might even enter their competitions which will run up to their opening date on that Sunday, 28 September.

Whatever you do, you should know that The Loft will be Wellington’s coolest new place for tomcats, alley cats, domestic cats — all kinds of cats!

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
