    A saturation of saturation?

    Did someone mention Saturations?

    the great unwashed

    Now there's a group of people that needs 'soapbox' support...
    just as the lumpenproletariat always needs stirrers!

    But no PA Friday music post to mention it on - c'est la vie...
    Might check out the klezmer bands tonight, just round the corner, though it is sobering seeing armed soldiers stationed outside many Jewish schools and other buildings in La Marais and elsewhere...

  • Hard News: Campbell interviewed,

    hire jinx?

    Du Plessis-Allan met with Jennings at a Wellington hotel this week to discuss the role.
    In an awkward twist, her One News boss Phil O'Sullivan walked in on the discussions after accidentally being given the hotel room key.
    Adding to the sensitive situation, O'Sullivan is said to have been meeting with TV3 reporter Dan Parker, in the same hotel, in a bid to poach him.

    Media commentator Gavin Ellis said Garner and du Plessis-Allan would make a formidable team. "If that is the case it bodes well because you have got two good, senior journalists at the helm who are capable of both light and shade."

    So is a tree - admittedly ya have to burn it down to get the light... But that does seem to be TV3's operating system.

    the real 'deal' ?

    Whatever, there’s still the trademark racist twist in the piece’s final sentence.

    I believe they call this the 'snigger in the woodpile'...

    the ungulate great planet earth!

    I thought it was mutual respect? They treat us like sheep, in response we regard them as scum…and vote for them anyway.

    Reports are coming in of the next extinction period:
    http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/earth-is-entering-sixth-extinction-phase-with-many-species--including-our-own--labelled-the-walking-dead-10333608.html

    The report, authored by scientists at Stanford, Princeton and Berkeley universities, found that vertebrates were vanishing at a rate 114 times faster than normal.

    in other words anything with a backbone is likely to disappear faster than the current crop of National politicians!

    Pigs are smarter than this!…

    I’m also worried about the levels of pig-ignorance of these people. eg Judith Collins when she said “I don’t like wetlands, they’re swamps… Go and find someone who actually cares because I don’t."

    Here’s a follow up link for that particularly egregious piece of self-serving arrogance by ‘Judas’ Collins –
    http://www.3news.co.nz/environmentsci/collins-wetlands-comments-outrage-environmentalists-2014050617#axzz3da0IVUEH
    Note how she deflects any responsibility for or connection to the actions of her husband’s company – cronyism at its finest.
    Master class deflection stuff this – avoids responding to reported facts being presented to her by merely saying she doesn’t watch a particular show, then adds (petulantly) that she never will – a schoolyard bully more than a potential ‘right honourable’…

    But I can see why the government might want an arm’s length agency to emasculate the TV3 newsroom for them!

    slumber-jacking & loggerheads…
    I see The Press has even weighed in on the matter – http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/opinion/69497644/exporting-kauri-logs-is-nonsense-pine-too
    I was gonna put a link to this fine piece in the comments there, but I am stuck elsewhere and have forgotten my Stuff log in details <doh!> – maybe someone else could, in the interests of spreading real information…

    'pont- iffy'-cation..
    Ergo, Bridges is a 'spanner' in the works?

    Out there…
    I note that Simon Denny’s Installation at the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciano, part of the Venice Biennale – Secret Power, has commissioned a modern version of a Renaissance World Map by ex-NSA graphic artist David Darchicourt, that has New Zealand at the top of the world, and includes Flying Nun as a symbol for Dunedin…
    Nice one!
