Would anyone be surprised to hear that the Allianz Satdium doesn't actually fit on Bledisloe Wharf?
And that's without the carpark you're gonna need.
Bledisloe Wharf is dead as an idea. So is Eden Park, let's move on to another site and quickly.
The Metropolis Building. I love it.
Bro'Town is done in three studios. Two in good old N of Z and one in India.
I think we should send them to Korea. They seem to have a better quality of underpaid sweatshop animators.
Futurama was one of, if not the greatest animated comedy. The line: "__Hey it's that guy you are__" still cracks me up.
If global warming ISN'T happening but we take action to try and stop it anyway what will happen?
My friend just sent me this:
"A proposal three years ago put a $100 million pricetag on building a 25,000 seat stadium there [Carlaw Park]. A 60,000 seat stadium would cost more, but significantly less than the $700,000 touted for the waterfront."

$700,000 for a waterfront stadium? Awesome. I'll take out a loan and build it myself!!!!!
I'll own NZ sports!! Cha-ching!
Gary: If the Apple stores in London and Tokyo are anything to go by, then no.
I don't know if this adds anything...but I discovered last night that in the lastest version of iTunes you can set which iTunes store you want to log into. This means I can use my UK iTunes login and buy songs in New Zealand. Gotta watch that exchange rate though.
How about The Kid in Came a Hot Friday?
Good point. I was just thinking TV and completely forgot about film.
I missed the Margret Mahy series recently but I did catch some. It seemed to be quite nicely put together. White folk, brown folk sometimes speaking Maori (mostly speaking English), all together on some sort of quest* to save their nation.
Was it any good?
*just remembered it was called Maddigan's Quest
Wednesday, TV3, 7.30pm = The Simpsons. An animated comedy show that's been running for nearly 20 years and has been renewed for its 19th season. Still funny.
Wednesday, TV3, 8.00pm = Bro'Town. An animated comedy show that's been running for nearly 3 years and is in its 3rd season. Funny once.
It's pretty harsh to compare Bro'Town with The Simpsons but when they're stuck together on the same night like that, it's hard not to.
Two things annoy me about Bro’Town. One is that the animation is terrible. Surely we’re more talented than that?
The other is that most of the lines seem shoved together and poorly paced. I remember reading somewhere that the Naked Samoans were having troubles writing for the screen after having done so much for the stage. This may account for it, but shouldn’t it have changed by season three?
Finally, (yes I know I said “two things”) all those celebrities. Adding cameos by local celebs doesn’t add humour, and humour is why I watch comedy. (Actually, on a side note, why do all the celebs on Bro’Town play themselves?)
So I got this off my chest, anyone with me? Anyone against me?
Watching it now, it's not even 5mins in and they've already connected Charlotte Dawson and dog sh*t
