Taika Waititi warned everyone that his kinda-new, but mainly just rehashed music video for the Patea Maori Club's Maori electrofunk classic Poi E would be either average or terrible. And while it does include some of the action from the outstanding Thriller/Poi E mash-up seen at the end of the film Boy, there's nowhere near enough for our liking (speaking of remixes, what the hell is this?). But if you're in the market for some heart-warming Kiwi nostalgia, check out the re-union of the Patea Maori Club that was organised by Maori TV and shown on Campbell Live.

Science: explained, and in a similar way to the approach taken by prestigious science show Look Around You, smooth talkin' magicians lure the ladies, 11 amazing fake Harry Potter/Hairy Otter books written in China, an excellent use of time to create this onslaught of weird technicolour cats and an array of entertaining, unintentionally sexual book titles.

In the last 97 years, the world has suffered the Great Depression, countless wars, the rise of tyranny, innumerable natural and man-made disasters and political scandals. We’ve mourned the rise of terrorism and celebrated the invention of the internet. We’ve put humans on the moon and explored that last frontier, oppressive regimes have fallen and human rights milestones have made history. Throughout it all, one thing has remained a constant of bathroom magazine baskets and rest home libraries: Reader’s Digest. Caitlin Salter talks to Australiasian group editor Louise Waterson about how this general interest publication has stood the test of time, and what the future holds.
