doing the loco emotion
stationary esteem engines
never change tracks
always gauging the difference
between rolling stock,
and lost attraction...
Doing something is better than doing nothing.
and at the risk of putting Descartes before the hordes:
Cogito ergo something...
I think therefore I can
I think for I can
I think I can
I think I can
I'll put the brakes on my 'freewheeling thinking' now
before I become a doubting Thomas
or derail the thread...
human misery as data
well it could lead to a misery accord
a small dagger used to deliver a death stroke to a wounded enemy.

Just wondering were any MediaWorks reporters allowed in the Budget Media Lock-up?
Considering they brought an end to them at the Reserve Bank.
You can also email Russell directly with a 'heads up' on typos etc by using the link at the bottom of the original post - well that's what I do, and that way we don't draw attention to minor flaws in the fabric of the otherwise 'award winning blog, by leaving traces that may lose their context...
...good spotting by the way, I missed two of those.
would he go away?
I find a good ‘blocker’ is to use the above images compounded to overwrite his existence – not quite PK Dick’s Flow my tears, the policeman said of course – and may only work for people of ‘a certain age’ …
If I gave you the Mike… may work as well
Do y’all have the remembered-as-real thing?
I've spent hours looking for (or worrying about) things that I finally realise only occurred in a dream - or is it vice versa?
Haven’t had that one for decades now (as far as I can remember).
The Last Wave is available on YouTube - combines both dreams and waves (brilliantly) without leaving the lounge - aaaahhh, the modern world, wake me when it's over!
It’s really just exercising social noise.
or 'exorcising' in many cases...
I always find the light in dreams good evidence that photons don't have mass...
...and the detail, oh. the detail - sometimes I wake up drained from the processing that must go on - my poor 'wetware' morphed into 'whetware' as everything gets super sharper!
I too have a recurring childhood flying dream - running around the grass quadrangle at Sydenham school, when I trip and just pivot at the hips and fly around the 'jungle gym' and the four trees and up to view the playground, school, Sydenham and then all of Christchurch - very exhilarating...
one is the loneliest number...
I’m inclined to think he’s just really, really bad at maths.
No chance he has a secret 'math lab' in the basement then?
I always feel a little 'number' after accidentally 'ingesting' him!
Even the trace elements in this post make me feel my reason slipping awayyyyyy......
I was going to suggest AirBNB
I thought Louise von Randow's suggestion of Carebnb was a good one.
I still remember the Government's corralling of 350 camper vans after the earthquakes - of which only one was used!!
They cost only $190 a week (not a night) yet still cost the Gov't $1.5 million apparently - money for jam for someone - Maybe they could corral up all those Wicked Campers and make those available for the homeless with some portaloos - Gov't sanctioned sleeping in cars would be an improvement... surely
The Earthquake camper vans idea would have worked better if people had been able to have the camper van at their home rather than a section in the middle of town - this Gov't is daft and crap at thinking laterally...
