    waiting in the wings...

    I don’t think I’ve seen one of these in Beijing before.

    Perhaps a pausing cast member,
    part of some passing lepidopterist opera?

  • Busytown: Beware of the Leopard, in reply to Jolisa,

    they seek him here…

    where is Ian D when we need him?

    Sadly, he is deep in the last 50 odd hours of packing up an entire house, full to the gunwales of far too much stuff – in preparation for earthquake damage repairs, at last.
    So time-starved am I, that I won’t even be able to attend the anti-TPPA protests occuring nationwide tomorrow…

    I do hope someone is sending reportage of this Kafka-esque process to Private Eye, and why isn’t Metro championing their namesakes – Metrosideros excelsa ?
    What you need is a Crimson Pimpernel!

    Good luck with a noble fight.

    Pauper don't preach...

    Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan {PAUP)

    I can see why they didn't call it the Auckland Proposed Unitary Plan - no one wants to be sold APUP...

    trees vs car

    let's see, hmmm,
    which one returns oxygen to the atmosphere?

    a plaque on their house...

    NZ dentistry is pricey, and WINZ doesn’t offer much by way of assistance.

    I got the impression they were heading WINZ towards
    an 'indentured worker' model...

    Music must not burn the ear or your ear potential will diminish prematurely.

    You might melt the ossicles...

    Cu(29) later...

    Personal headphones at arenas

    I heard from a reliable source recently, that concerts these days are largely wireless and can be mixed on an iPhone...

    Sob!
    Who can I pass my immaculate lead coiling skills on to?

    Should help the world Copper shortage though, right?

    Elevator pitch?

    La Brea ears

    you're lowering the tone,
    that's the pits...

    Flat tout...

    Did they live at home until they entered Parliament?

    Muldoon used to flat in a house I later lived in, in Hawkstone street, Thorndon (in fact Russell picked me up from there when I shifted up to Ak for RIU work ) - during his Young Turk days in opposition (er, Muldoon's, not Russell's, that is)
    ;- )

    There was always an oppressive feeling in the large sunny lounge, and people who slept there felt as if they were being sat on or suffocated.
    Years later I was staying in the hotel now opposite, and while waiting outside one morning, spotted some folk leaving the place - so I said "hi" and asked if the place was still haunted, they said "no", but later that evening I saw them hurrying out of the place with suitcases and cartons... spooky! or merely a coincidence?

    NZ being the small place it is, one of my flatmates there, Finola Dwyer was just finishing film school (I think) - Now she's on Greek St in London producing damn fine movies...

  • Hard News: Music: The Homecoming Queen, in reply to Russell Brown,

    baffled...

    I can’t believe there’s no way of remediating the problem

    maybe some kind of inverse acoustic vases placed in the walls to absorb rather than resonate sound?
    an antiquarian view can be found here

    After all sound is just a pressure wave - so ya put up a C wall - or perhaps a phase diffractor
    the aim is concert pitch not concert tar isn't it?
