    Prestige Hadyn, you got it or you ain't.

    Well there is definitely a class system building here

    And what sort of condoms do you buy, anyway?

    That may be a whole different comment stream

  • Hard News: Launching into raunch,

    Staying away from the feminist arguement (because quite frankly I'm out of my depth on that one)

    My friend Jose and I had a very interesting discussion with Dylan Horrocks (the comic book writer/artist) about his Tijuana Bibles (if you what they are, look them up on Wikipedia, I doubt they’ll be on Conservapedia).

    He was saying how porn was an art form, like anything else that is in a creative medium. Much like regular film - both indy and mainstream - porn is made through a creative process in which artists behind and in front of the camera decide what the audience will like and react to. And like all art (take music for example) it tends to suck (no pun intended) when it sells out.

    This maybe why most people who like television as a medium HATE reality TV as it has no artistic value. The parallels with porn are easy to make. this also links to the "girls gone wild" type of stuff Joanna mentions above.

    Now to see if this comment will make it through the filters at work…

  • Hard News: Launching into raunch,

    The early New Zealand population survived by growing bananas, coconuts, yams and taro, and also by raising dogs and pigs

    Brilliant. Michael King couldn't have summed it up better.

    It reminds me of what my girlfriend saw written in the British Museum by the Pasifika art.

    The natives were happy to accept christianity and denounce their pagan gods that were numerous and needed human sacrifice

    (not a direct quote)

    Where did they grow the bananas?

  • Hard News: Itinerary packed, bags not…,

    We had a little chuckle about the whole "Auckland Earthquake" thing at work the day after and that was it. Then the paper the next morning kept going, talking about Ponsonby survivors sipping chardonays and lattes (like down here in Wellington we drink beer from gumboots or something).

    I've never understood the "rivalry" between the two cities as it only seemed to exist at the Wellington end.

    The coolest news of the day, IMHO, is the Collosal Squid! Freakin' awesome!

    anyone care to source the real reason for inflated house prices?

    I thought it was the foreigners?

  • Daily Show in "actually daily" shock,

    It'd be nice if they played the Friday show at 10pm Monday

    It'd be nice if they played it earlier in the evening (I'd even watch day-old episodes if they were earlier)

    I was in an all day meeting yesterday and missed out. Stupid public sector! Stupid kids needing to be educated! (note: just a joke not an official stance)
