In reality the Dentist and her assistant ... just ignored it too.
The barge of fate adrift in the root canal...
...if the straight jacket fits,

Oh yeah I almost forgot
the TED X talks in Chchch
are happening right now (10.30am)
and are live to web:
and here’s the day’s programme:
taking the pithy...
not every issue can be condensed into a short sentence…
Indeed, the fallacy of a 'Tersery Education'!
Which reminds me - why was Brownlee the man to do the Preposterous Panda Proposal delivery?
Surely Joyce, who was a zoology or veterinary major and was in China a week or so ago, would have been better suited for this...
...and please after seeing the pandas in Tokyo zoo, don't do it!
Poor beasts looked despairingly bored and trapped (I know i'm being anthropomorphic), but there is little return to the animal's quality of life from our 'benign interest'.
but most people don’t even know he was briefly the singer in The Clean.

Every ‘Thing’ is going to be, alright?
The Government in keeping with its long term relationship with the US film studios and corporations has, through its local operating arm (Cera) and the CCC, placed a promotional statue of The Thing© in the Avon River (sadly the rebooted Fantastic Four movie has already opened and closed – such planning! Oy vey!)
…the statues would become a pinpoint in Christchurch to help people position themselves in the city, a bit like a map.
“Hopefully, it will be a point of pride and will attract visitors,” he said.
$500,000 from the Council and an unspecified amount from Cera/Govt.
Do these people even know what they are doing – we seem to be becoming a dumping ground for ‘art franchises’ – Gormley has a few of these around the globe now and UK artist Martin Creed now has one of his neon sign pieces up here as well – he has installed this same message elsewhere, so no site specific work this – and thankfully the friend who spoke these words to him when he was depressed wasn’t David Seymour – a large neon ‘Harden Up’ would really set the tone for the city…
Not to mention the slap in the eye for NZ artists and the huge amounts of ‘arts funding’ heading offshore…
The Press today also headlines the dropping of the proposed Coastal Hazard Land Information initiative from the revised District Plan.
Now at least we are all in it together (what with a mere gradient of a few centimetres between west Chchch and the coast) rather than the few bearing the personal cost - but any coastal lifestyle must be a lottery for the future.
