Pop Culture Extraordinaire

You’re welcome.

You must be relieved to have finally found Andrea’s site! Searching for awesomeness can easily wield narcolepsy upon even the most enthusiastic of explorer. And not to worry; you’re not the first to be disappointed to discover that ‘awesomeness’ is derived from the super-savvy scrawl of a she-human, rather than some phallus-wielding secret hand-shaker. Life’s a bitch. It’s true. Nonetheless, it would be really lame and entirely irresponsible not to act on this sensational piece of pyrotechnic intelligence. That’s right, writer and indoctrinator motivational speaker. It’s a skill.

A skill that Andrea has been professionally honing for almost a decade. Published in print and a regular contributor to the World Wide Web, Andrea’s client list is well and truly versatile. But with popular culture her muse and social commentary her forté, Andrea’s philosophical reveries are the pick of a super yummy pie.


“These days true anarchists are the religious-type zealots who preach from an old-school moral high ground, imposing absolute standards in a world governed by relativism.” – Pop Psychology #10 Tattoos

“The beauty queen vomited diplomacy, choosing to euphemise the situation by parroting stuff about visions of unity, giving back, educated women entering beauty pageants and that we should all be equal. Translation: “world peace” (yawn).” – Pop Psychology #13…Miss World

“The anarchy unleashed by a pathologically fixated Id on a rampage is the very thing that binds Jax, Gemma, Clay, Tara and all the Sons to a life of fear, death and loss. On the plus side, though, there’s lots of opportunity for sex and killing.” – Sons of Anarchy and Philosophy Brains Before Bullets (published)

“Peroxide is selling out in shops, stylists are running out of extensions, silver hair ties are a super-store anomaly and the kids are going crazy; pencils have turned into assegais, erasers are moonlighting as missiles and climbing frames are jam-packed POW camps. It’s a horror story – a Frozen fan’s (also a mum’s, a hairdresser’s and a store assistant’s) worst nightmare.” – Frozen (a fetish)
