Welcome to Toxic Waste. This webshite is a continuation of the review fanzine I edited, illustrated, and published between 1990 and 1997. Likewise, Toxic Waste is more than a weblog. I've probably got too many plates spinning here online, but with proper time management I should be able to stay on top of it all. Enjoy your stay.

The Kiwi 1980s gore film Death Warmed Up has been released on DVD at last. An Australian release is apparently forthcoming. Message board gossip suggests that the picture quality is average.

Your Humble Narrator
So I'm visiting Brisbane to see the family. Mum and I are in Woolworths buying groceries. The trolley is full, and I'm pushing it toward to checkout lanes when mum lobs a Schwarzkopf men's hair colouring pack into the trolley. Looking at a recent photo of myself (above), I think my sterling silver locks are very...Hollywood. "Well said!"
