Part three contained what is a surely a rare gem - a live performance from Wreck Small Speakers on Expensive Stereos!
Six years ago one of my workmates discovered that our boss had been in WSSOES. Workmate managed to track down some American music store that had a reissue of a CD and bought it. We all sat around listening to it, trying to figure out if we should laugh or not.
How come I've never seen you people before?
Nigerian doctor turned bellhop:
Because we are the people you do not see.
The people wearing high-visibility vests.
I passed through Patea in August and stopped off at the Aotea remembrance arch. Sadly I wasn't able to get up on it and breakdance, but it's a remarkable arch, and makes Patea well worth a stop for visitors to South Taranaki.
There's also a Poi E information centre, but it was shut when I was there.
Oh, and my favourite bit from the Poi E video is the trendy '80s girls with the reased hair and eyeliner at about 3.20. They are also joined by a Maori Boy George.
I've never been anything even close to being a U2 fan, but I appreciate Russell's account of the performance and technology (geek!) at the concert.
The sea of cellphones sounds like a slightly more modern of Robbie Williams' sea of camera flashes at his Knebworth concerts. Either would be brilliant (in more ways than one) to take part in and to witness.
"And if you're not wearing jeans, you can go to Vibrations"
That clip was good. It makes me want to be in Christchurch and/or Dunedin right now.
And how nice it was seeing all those Flying Nun boys looking so young, not realising what was to come.
Key would be an awesome Prime Minister to rage against and secretly have a dirty crush on.
You may have have heard about an impolite word that starts with F. It's not foreskin.
That was brilliant. Genuinely lol. I'm going to make Mr Slack a lol cake with fresh lol cream (not that fake lol creme stuff).
Yup, that's the best thing about being hooked on P - only 2 sleeps til xmas!
That's hilarious. I'm going to steal it and use it to make people think I'm hip and witty and/or actually on P.
I'm sick of all the complaints that the stadium design looks like a condom/haemorrhoid cushion/donut.
I mean, it's a round structure with a hole in the middle. Of course it's going to resemble other round things with holes in the middle.
We as humans don't think that round things with holes in the middle are inherently ugly (c.f. the mouth), and I don't see why the stadium should be considered ugly because of this reason.
As far as buildings that resemble things goes, some say the Sky Tower looks like a hypodermic needle (does it really?), but that hasn't stopped it from turning into a loved icon of Auckland.
