I would find some of the things depicted in the post weird and tasteless if they were in front of me in real life. But here, they're just on the internet.
Mean of me, but I’m tempted to try catching the final episode of Gilmore’s Folly this afternoon, live. Anyone know the exact time?
About 3pm, after Question Time.
She’s a fairly respected expert. Try finding one who *hasn’t* had an interested party as a client (legal academics, I guess).
Quite. Lawyers have clients in their areas of expertise. I can't even see where there's a relevant conflict, tbh.

And again, emphasising how big that marriage equality bump was ...

So it’s marriage equality then daylight …
The number one is the waiata after the third reading. But as Toby Manhire points out, the Maurice Williamson clip in second place here was ripped by a whole bunch of third-party sites, so probably got more views in total.
a missed opportunity to showcase some NZ music
Often thought the same. How hard would it be?
It is New Zealand music -- commissioned from the late Rob Winch.
Listening to the NatRad replay on the affair, Prostetnic Vogon Joyce resorted to insisting black is white when he claimed future Govts are liable to compensate SkyCity if they tear up the deal. When Mary Wilson asked him for an actual real life example, he changed the subject.
"Give me a real example of this."
"I'll give you a theoretical example."
Maybe 230 is the level at which you get a good bulk purchasing discount? Or that will fit in a certain area of casino floor that will be made available?
Joyce has now confirmed in interviews that the 230 is a negotiated figure, not a logistical one. Even claimed credit for talking it down to that entirely coincidental number.
He’s allowed to write about whatever interests him, and today, this is that subject. Keeping politicians honest is a perfectly noble journalistic cause, and if the target is Labour, it is worth noting that they’re hardly some poor starving beneficiary family who don’t deserve attention. From time to time, they run the entire country. They’re worth keeping honest, for everyone’s good.
