    It's the 'Pill-Pressbyterians' vs 'The Meth-ODists'...

  • Speaker: Are we seeing the end of MSM,…,

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/86782357/editors-tell-the-commerce-commission-declining-media-merger-is-wrong
    These editors make much of "the communities we serve" yet I've noticed Fairfax's coverage of major events in Chchch has dropped away unless they sponsor it or it is a Fairfax Media Events event - it's a 'community of interest' they serve not actually all the people that make up a community...
    They enable Facebook and Google by publishing their own material on line to be reaggregated before the print edition comes out - for no good reason in many cases (ie: not time crucial information).
    They have lost their way!

  • Hard News: From Zero: Drugs and popular culture,

    Boo! Tea! call...
    The Drugs and Popular Culture episode seems to miss out Posters and Comics - no dayglo leaf poster boutiques, no Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Robert Crumb or Harold Hedd (which all made their way to NZ thru Student or Underground mags and shops - what about Barry Linton's Auckland life comic glimpses in various places and Burton Silver's dope munching hedgehogs in The Listener! - Heck even Spiderman and Green Arrow dropped the Comics Code accreditation badge to present drug stories, all available here...
    I know DeQuincey is alluded to but was Burroughs or Emmett Grogan or even Kerouac ... all big sellers here in certain circles.
    Not music but comedy! - Cheech and Chong had a big NZ following - I know I went to their Chchch show - I can't remember a thing from it! - that was down to the alcohol though...

  • Up Front: Giving It the Bish, in reply to Kiwiiano,

    If this God burk goes around killing baby seals isn’t he/she/it criminally liable for harming protected animals?

    Uplifting stuff is fine but there has been a lot of disempauament on the coast as well...

  • Up Front: Giving It the Bish, in reply to Rosemary McDonald,

    Y’all really should read the exchange between Laws and the mother of a boy with Down’s….makes Tamaki’s little rant seem trivial.

    And now he (Laws) is on the Central Otago Regional Council…
    But he must know a lot about medicine though, right? As he even uses the caduceus in the logo of his PR firm ‘The Message’ down there…
    http://www.themessage.nz/
    He fancies himself as a modern day Hermes or Mercury!
    ...he's more 'heel' than 'heal' methinks.

    he has this to say about journalists:
    http://www.themessage.nz/blog/Can-journalists-be-trusted-5.html
    most of which flies in the face of his behaviour and tirade at Kirsten Moffitt.
    it is his only blog-post since May this year – writer’s block perhaps?

  • Hard News: Friday Music! Mic drops and…,

    It is hard in certain lights, not to see 'urban' as a euphemistic tag like Trump's much trumpeted 'inner cities' ....

    Are we there yet?
    ...went out the window back in the '60s and again in the '80s, when Mobil gave away these Carl Barks drawn Walt Disney Donald Duck comics (and Mickey Mouse) - luckily I have some for sale over on Trade Me
    http://www.trademe.co.nz/books/comic-books/walt-disney/auction-1200637942.htm

    and other fine anthropomorphic funny animal comics as well (mostly with a Carl Barks story ) see my other listings:
