Perhaps the drug dogs are just a way for thousands of music fans to have their music festival back too - it's the Big Day Out, not J-Day :-)
Right. So we can go back to the golden era when everyone at the Big Day Out was stone cold sober, even in the Boiler Room. Oh, hang on ...
But seriously Graeme, the idea of resoonding to problems by pushing the event into being some sort of flag day is silly. Reading a number of sites, I get the impression that long-term punters feel that it's losing its quirkiness. Turning it into flag day hardly recaptures the spirit.
Wow! The sound's a bit shit, but here's something you probably never thought you'd see again. Kids, this was actually a hit back in the day ...
Fried breaded potato & peas patty that is flavoured with a special spice mix, fresh tomato slices, onion, and veg. tomato mayonnaise between toasted buns.
It actually doesn't sound so bad ...
The forces of political correctness shall not beat us down.

It's such a shame the "God Hates Fags" clip has been taken down - it was so ludicrous, and so utterly fruity that any sensible person should have been amused, not offended by it. Indeed, my first action on finding it was to send the link to two gay friends ...
My mind was, however, preoccupied. I'd ate a McAloo Tikki burger from McDonald's the night before, and my mind was boogling at the the sheer range of stories where I could use "McAloo Tikki" as a humourous aside, handy segue, or even as a metaphor that encapsulates the commercialisation of India in one neatly oversimplified little package. Absolute gem.
This is a fine post, Keith. But review the burger, dammit.
I always wonder how they all find the time. And the emotional energy for that level of hate.
Come to think of how do you all find the time?
You mean for our love?
Redbaiter has patches of sanity that make me suspect he is more than one person, or perhaps that another regular user has Redbaiter as an amusing sockpuppet and forgets to stay in character.
Unlikely. Redbaiter's a relative newbie on Kiwiblog, but he has a long history on the local Usenet newsgroups, so it would be a long act. But agreed, he does occasionally briefly drop out of character.
I am Brian, hear me roar ...
I'd have a crack at a second verse but I, um, don't know the second verse ...
OK, 'fess up - which one of you is Sonic?
Alright, it's me. I can tell you, all that trolling on Kiiwblog and keeping up Hitchens Watch keeps me bloody busy.
But in retrospect, it was a bit OTT when I interviewed myself for my Listener column ...
