Hey all you Scumbags! Welcome to the beginning to the end of 2014!
So, some news: basically, when we started the ol’ Scum Machine, we didn’t really know…anything…about websites. Like…anything. At all. So, eventually we realised we’d need to one day change providers, and since our hosting is up, that time is now! No big deal, and you shouldn’t experience any severe Lack of Scum, but things might look a little funny for a while around here. Think of it as an adventure! Like Lord of the Rings! (That being said, if on your travels around the site something looks really wrong to you, shoot us an email and we’ll check it out.)
But, hey, to make it up to you all, we’re bringing you the SCUM MAG ADVENTURE CALENDAR EXPERIENCE™ – meaning that we’ve harassed a bunch of our Scum writers and we’re forcing them to write for you/us! Every day of December from now until the 24th, one writer will add to a building story. Where will it take us? Mordor? Who knows!
Oh, and if you’re in Melbourne, we’re having a little Scum Christmas party on Thursday night. Come on over!

Oh hey there Scummerinos! If you’ve been keeping up with the Scumdashians on facey, you’ll know that we’ve recently pushed our blue light disco zine out of the birth canal that is Officeworks, and into the world. Continue reading
Our 2am series is officially over, and we want to take the time to say a big thank you to everyone who read, contributed, commented, liked or shared our posts in the last fortnight. It was super heartening to feel all that love and support flowing through our little Scum community. If there’s any feedback you’d like to share, please feel free to leave it in the comments of this post!
And now we have some big news. Continue reading
Over the course of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, Scum is very excited to be presenting a new project: 2am.
Each night of the festival at 2am we’ll be posting a piece by a different writer either written or set at 2am. Writing is often associated geographically, historically, or thematically, but we are really interested in presenting a series of works held together temporally.
From the 28th of May to the 7th of June, there’ll be pieces about the moon, about loss, about fires under beds, confessionals, and the way we spend those early hours both online and IRL. We’re wide-eyed, restless, and can’t wait to share them all with you.
Brought to you by Sian Campbell, Rita Braby, and Christopher Hocking.
How not to be a man
Wear your jumpers as pants, even privately.
Worse still, wear your girlfriend’s clothes,
any of your girlfriend’s clothes, no excuses. Continue reading
