This week we spending our sunny Sat'day arvo chatting with artist and designer Nathan Nankervis, legendary lensman Lewis Robert and Melbournian garage rockers Kooyong.

Nathan Nankervis

Where do we know you from?
The super cute baby face on the Swinburne billboards? The adorable mop topped boy who did that stuff for Nike?

What do you do with yourself?
I'm an artist, illustrator and designer. I've also been doing some fashion​ stuff as of late.​

Who are five people (alive or dead) you'd take a cruise with?
Vin Diesel​. He'd drive. Probably in a Ford Mustang that has a dirt bike that ejects from the boot. He'd also be the EXACT same guy he plays in every movie. If it turns out he's just a normal dude I'm taking my choice back.​

Louis Theoroux​. My idol. He's in his Fiat.

​Buddha​.​ We just sit under a tree, our conversation is the vehicle.

​L​eonardo ​D​a ​V​inci​.​ He's in his flying machine. I show him my iPhone and watch him freak out.

P.Diddy. We're on electric scooters

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Bread. Ciabatta loaf.

What would you like to come home to?
No one's home. I light several vanilla caramel scented candles. The ambiance is angelic. I'm in a silk robe with nothing but a pair of flamboyant Bart socks on. My phones off, I've hidden it deep in my room. I meander on down to the kitchen, never lifting my socks from the floorboards, occasionally pulling out a manoeuvre that belongs in Swan Lake. I open up a packed fridge. Exotic ingredients. Vegetables that look like vegetables. Lumps, dirt, the works. I put some anime on the tv. Muted. Captions on. Followed by some jazz. Real loud. I then spend the next 3 hours making love to food.

What’s your perfect Sunday?
Any Sunday that involves falling asleep in the park or a having a beer in the sunshine with a friend. Or 10. Beers and friends.

Lewis Robert

Where do we know you from?
You might know me as the eyes behind the lens of music videos from artists like Zak Fleisher and Falcon Club.

What do you do with yourself?
I'm a freelance cinematographer and editor by day and by night a renegade who tries to imbed Wayne's World quotes into interviews.

Cartoon crush?
I always found Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and played a girl bunny but then again WHO DIDN'T?

Favourite mode of public transport?
​Tram, since the 11 line has upgraded to the flash new models.

Got any life hacks?
Place a few squares of TP in the toilet so your poo doesn't splash.

What's your perfect Sunday?
Showing my girlfriend a film and her appreciation for it not being forced.


Where do we know you from?
I met you in the supermarket that one time and asked if you could move your trolley. It ain't polite to take up two lanes pal! I also play steady rock beats in Kooyong and you may have seen me there. I dunno, I'm too busy trying to keep time to notice you.

What do you do with yourself?
Flip burgers, flip the bird and study the rhythmic patterns of four to the floor drum beats.

Favourite cured meat?
If it ain't chicken, I don't wanna know about it.

Favourite band name?
​Cocaine Duane and the Cannibal Dog.

If you could go on Pimp My Ride, but like, be able to choose what they do to your car, rather than just let them do whatever, what would you choose they do to your car?
Well, since I ain't got a car. I'm gonna have to use Will's (bass player) Hyundai I30. The people's choice. I'd put flames on in. Cause flames look great. You know those bowling shirts with flames on them? Yeah, imagine that in car form.

Got anything to X-hibit while you’re there?
Yo X, as dope as you are. Imagine how dope chu'd be in a bowling shirt with flames on it? You dig dog?

What's your perfect Sunday?
Forget a Sunday roast. Try a large Popcorn Chicken meal with three crispy strips.
