  • Hard News: Thursday Music: Doing the Business, in reply to Grant McDougall,

    I've no idea when her birthday is (nor am I seeking that info) but in a year from now she'll have another birthday before ahe could vote and 2018 the next general election eligible. Her peers might take her endorsement but they're in the same situation.

    Something that does appeal to me: If you're entitled to vite but unsure which candidate, why not ask someone presently unable to vote? It would mean some living in New Zealand whose opinions aren't counted are somewhat accounted.

  • Cracker: We Haz Talent?,

    It's been a *ahem* fair few years since I made it to Quest gigs but I've enjoyed seeing young talents shine in interviews as well and where they're coming from, quite appropriately free to air.

  • Hard News: On Telly, Telly Off,

    As I've had past periods without TV and can do without, have a dying CRT (bought on the cusp of LCD becoming affordable) and am expecting some inflation on units in December, I'm experimentally keeping the analogue running to see if anyone hijacks some frequesncy. Just to see what there is to see and report even if it's nonce. As I don't download, pressure to buy won't strike until Christmas discounts.
