  • Hard News: It was 20 years ago tomorrow ...,

    Whilst we are on good things, it was a bloody good Media 7 last night--even if times it threatened to turn into The Jo Cotton Show. I know it will be used by teachers, especially in girls' schools.

    There is the New Zealand fuchsia or Kotukutuku (f. excorticata) which is one of the very few deciduous native plants in New Zealand.

  • Hard News: Body image and the media,

    What's with the fascination with that show? I saw one episode on the plane back to NZ and I wanted to jump out.

    Big Bang Theory? It is Sheldon, Sheldon, Sheldon!

  • Hard News: Body image and the media,

    I too watch Grand Designs with some reluctance (I don't have control of the remote in our h/h). Kevin does know his stuff but, just in a while, I would like him to raise a question or two about the wisdom of (usually) two people living in the huge mansions they build, with the accompanying considerations of energy use and self-indulgence.

    Ah, the Listener scooped again.
    *applauds*

    With more clapping from the back seats! Perhaps they could do a feature on the correlation between body size and house prices.

  • Random Play: Stop! In the Name of Love!!,

    Chasing you around the threads here, Russell but I was just wondering what Media 7 is doing this week (I know you are at SPADA next week--will see you there)

    I can never see the point of vegetarian pies. It's a bit like decaffeinated coffee.

    Or sugar-free barley sugar?

    What's on Media 7 this week, Russell?

    Nor are we ignoring you like we are Hamilton and Dunedin and all those other towns.

    On behalf of the ignored, "city" please!

    So, it looks like another trip up SH1!!

  • Island Life: The World Is Full of Cu*ts,

    Would be facetious to suggest that churches pay GST on their income? They are providing a service, after all..

    Or maybe I am just feeling a little bitter after paying out $102 in excise fees and GST, to get access to a copy of a UK-published book I contributed a chapter to.
