  • Hard News: A Stand for Quaxing,

    Bikes, eh? I now have two: my Avanti Explorer 2, which serves me well and another, which I am not sure whether is a toy or something really, really useful. My favourite local Placemakers had a silent auction for charity (prostrate cancer) and I successfully put in a bid for a Makita electric bike. It is sort of a cross between a Raleigh 20 and a power tool. Not sure whether I look like a dork riding it but it offered welcome assistance in yesterday's late afternoon head-wind,
    Some sarcastic bastard suggested it might be a transition to a mobility scooter...!

  • Up Front: Fringe of Darkness, in reply to Rob Stowell,

    There is also some interesting academic writing, such as Olive Jone's 'insider-researcher' PhD at the University of Waikato (2011) and a 2o12 MA from Massey by Robert Jenkin (another 'insider' perspective).

  • Hard News: RWC 2015: This wasn't in the script!,

    It was superlative rugby. Loved the crying man the camera kept returning to.

    The Chiefs need to get Michael Leitch back, He ought to be considered for the ABs too. One hell of a good player.

  • Hard News: Media Take Takes a Break,

    Excellent Media Take this year, with Russell and Toi. My students were all abuzz about being part of the audience last week.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Not just…,

    I bought Anthonie Tonnon's release in the way I prefer (paid online, received a CD through the mail) but I got a sense that not many were doing the same. But it does mean that I can press the CD on friends and colleagues, urging them 'to take a listen to this'. Much more satisfying than sending them a link.

    I have hopes that more NZ music will be heard on National Radio, with Jessie Mulligan in charge of afternoons. There was quite a bit today (maybe you had a hand in this, Russell?)

    No, we are not over hearing about Christchurch. We want to hear about the shonky things which are going on and help where we can.

    Are bogans really that homogenous and undifferentiated as a social group? What about neo-bogans, quasi-bogans, wannbe-bogans, faux bogans, bogus bogans, used-to-be-a-bogan?
