Poor judgment

By IAN YEE DURING my first few months as a journalist, I wrote probably the dumbest article of my life. Coming from me, I suppose that’s saying quite a lot about that piece. It was about the Here In My Home music video, which local singer-songwriter Pete Teo had put together with some well-known […]

Careless tweeters

By IAN YEE EVERY Friday, I like to take a few hours to do what we here at R.AGE call #RAGEchat, where we basically ask our followers on Twitter what they think about our stories.

The cheerleader myth

BWHEN I tell people that R.AGE organises a secondary school cheerleading competition every year, they usually give the same, highly-predictable response – “so are the cheerleaders all bimbos?” followed by a juvenile laugh.

It is the curse of the over-achieving club. After Dortmund’s incredible 5-2 […]

Defining greatness

By IAN YEE YOU know there will always be some big-mouthed, know-it-all out there waiting to poop on a party; and last week, that man was former England international Chris Waddle. Even when Alex Ferguson retired, I had the feeling it was coming. Some genius pundit was going to nit-pick on his success and […]

The end of Fergie time

By IAN YEE NOW that Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has finally retired, you really have to wonder how the chewing gum industry will fare without its biggest advocate. Hairdryer manufacturers, too, would probably be freaking out right about now. But such is the measure of the man that his departure has actually caused […]
