So I had planned on writing this and putting it up days ago, but I didn’t, and then I forgot when it was and thought it was ages away. Then I realised it was this weekend. So here you go. Sorry.

Comics on K is a weekend event celebrating and showcasing New Zealand comics. It will include an exhibition of comic art, and the artists themselves will be there to sell their work and have a chat. The art in the exhibition will be auctioned at the end of the weekend, and on the Saturday there’ll be talks from 5pm by cartoon luminaries Dylan Horrocks (Hicksville) and Chris Slane (NZ Listener). Last time I saw Dylan Horrocks talk he was hilarious. Also there for the weekend will be the Sheehan Brothers, Brent Willis, Marc Streeter, Stefan Neville and Frank & Becky. New Zealand comic creators aren’t snooty and don’t put on any airs and graces, so this will be a great opportunity not only to see their work but to also meet the people behind the comics. Whether you’re already a comic enthusiast or just curious to see if you might become one, it’s sure to be an entertaining and informative event.

Held this weekend (17th & 18th October), the event is a week before Auckland’s Armageddon Expo – which, as we all know, has little to do with New Zealand comics.

Comics on K is proudly presented by The Cross Street Carnival, Fleet fm, The High Seas and the K Rd Business Association.

Christian Louboutin is

Christian Louboutin is designing a shoe range inspired by gay Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas. The legendary footwear maker is close friends with the sportsman - who came out in 2009 - and the pair reportedly met for lunch in Cardiff last month to discuss the new collection, which will be called 'Alfie', Gareth's nickname.A source told The Sun newspaper: "Christian Louboutin Boots is working on a casual shoe range, with Gareth as the main inspiration. He's really chuffed about it."While Christian Louboutin Pumps has a popular menswear line and last year designed a range of sneakers with DJ Swizz Beatz, he is more famous for his high-heeled creations - which are a favourite among a host of celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss.He has previously revealed he measures how good his shoes are by what they look like on a naked woman.He said: "The ultimate must still look good when a woman is naked. The design that encapsulates my career is the Pigalle, a low-cut, high-heeled pump. It's so subtle in that it adds something sexy to the body, but you don't immediately realise that it's the shoe that is making the difference."
