Hunter + Kollektor

Just wanted to draw your attention to a great new blog. Launched by Sydneysider Paul Hayes, it's called Kollektor and is designed as a repository for news about Australian artists, designers and thinkers. This is not Hayes’ first foray into blogging – he’s been dabbling with this Blogspot blog for a couple of years, in additional to Tumblr. But Kollektor has a slick magazine feel and with Hayes’ demonstrated (via Twitter) news foraging skills and taste for eclectica, frockwriter is betting this new blog could make waves - especially if he injects some of that rapier wit. A former film editor at ABC TV, production editor at Ad News and, from 2005 until a couple of weeks ago, the editor of News Limited’s City Weekly and ALIVE Sydney, Hayes is taking a year off to travel, contemplate his navel and blog/Tweet a great deal. Less well–known is the fact that Hayes spent over a decade as a drag artiste in Melbourne and latterly, Sydney, under the stage name of Miss Victoria Bitter. Miss VB to her intimates.
