  • Hard News: One man’s Meat Puppets is…, in reply to Sacha,

    I think you might have it there, Sacha. I don't really feel guilt about much at all (other than stuff affecting other people I might have cocked up), but the fandamily were Irish Catholic and some things are kind of stuck in the cultural inheritance...

    Nup, my ethnicity is as Irish as Paddy's pig, and yet I can't stand bear to be in the same room as the schmalzchiness. Mind you, he's not as bad as Tom Waites, which for some reason I had inflicted on me by the same set of ex-lovers over the same period. And Johnny Cash (see above, re country).

    Morrison/Waites/Cash - all so different, but so emblematic of a certain period and the tastes of certain of my girfriends. Who I still loved all the same. Walkmen and headphones so I could blat out my DnB/electronica to my heart's content were the inventions of the gods.

    Count me in as another c &.w hater. And yes, "alt" country is just as whiny. 99% of metal is boring in the utter extreme. I'm just allergic. Whiny "rock" of the Nickelback school, which just sounds like someone is trying to pass a massive turd.

    Morrissey should have been my god when I was 16, but blergh.

    Tom Beard encapsulated the Whitney, Celine, Kenny G axis of evil.

    ....but nothing surpasses AUTOTUNE! I cannot even stay in the room with that effect on. This includes Peter Framptom's effort from the late 70s or whenever it was.

    Guilty pleasure: Fleetwood Mac. I know, I know. But who the hell mentioned Radiohead and Oasis in the same breath? Fie, fie on thee!

    *puts hand up to join the anti-feijoa club* I think it was compulsory for every old-skool state house with a section in Auck to have one of those trees.... :-(

    After posting up my amateur shots, I'm really inspired by the article to do better! And that cafe con leche, please. :-)

    And one last one, since we're talking oysters. Not so successful with the pic - it was in the middle of a backpackers - but it was really a perfect lunch, all from the Borough Market in London.

    And coffee o'clock at Finc when they still had decent baristas.

    Plate could be a bit tidier, and it is a bit top-down, but I think the lighting makes this one.
