    All I wanted to say, to the forum in general, I've said: nosce te ipsum.

    (donning on my "Hooray for sarcasm" T-shirt)-- Well, I think I do but I can get be a bit forgetful these days.

    Ya, it's kinda strange how the young are always bitter on the expectations that the old have of them

    Well put, Ben. Of course, the retort 'so where do you think you came from?' doesn't work.

    i like people with an air of mystery:)

    Well, it is a mystery to me what exactly you are complaining about.

    But I like disgraceful old blokes and aspire to be one. Being a public nuisance must be more satisfying than the weekly trip to the bowling club, to whine about the 'yoof' of today!

    Thanks, Phil. Much appreciated. I was also on Radio Live with Maggie Barry, suggesting that if the gummint continued to squeeze TVNZ for dividends and treat it as a 'cash' cow', its final destination was likely to be Jimbo's petfood factory. But she didn't get the joke!

    Whereas there is already a term for middle-aged, heterosexual male polyamorists: sleazebag

    Let's not be too ageist here!

    Better seeing such a slogan on the arse-end of a bus, than oversized TV 3 news presenters or Vodaphone ads.

    I come here for informed opinion and an enlightened take on the world. You know what you will get from PA but, nevertheless, you can encounter surprising things. I have changed my opinion on matters a number of times, in wake of a PA discussion. But if you arrive intent on casting around shit, you are going to get shate on. There are other places--and other blogs--where you can do that.

    One of the aspects of the rewording of the TVNZ Amendment Act that I find most curious is that all mention of specific audiences or broadcasting requirements have been deleted, with the sole exception of "Maori interests" . Is this another case of an accommodation between National and the Maori Party?

    I mentioned this when I did a piece for News @ 8 last night but it is difficult to develop an argument with a solitary camera lense poointing at you.

    Not sure where to post this message but this does seem to be the hottest thread at the moment. My pal Liam Ryan has let me know that one of the performers at the Tauranga Jazz Festival in 2010 is Dr John. Which is great news.

    Doing a stint on New @ 8 (TVNZ7) this evening. Must wear a better shirt!
