it's in the bag...
There is a 'pursed slips' element to it all, lip readers aside they should have got a signer, to make sure it would all fall on deaf eyes...
Defies belief really...
I wish the media would get back to parsing policy and quit with first pass the purse...
'chimps tea-party'. But that could
be taken as a bit ad hominem...
...or possibly add hominid
Has anyone called this the cuppa hacker scandal yet?
or even The Mad Chatters Tea Party?
Key sure can under-sell himself - Just heard him on the radio
saying that everyone would realise any conversation he had
with John Banks would be pretty bland... what happened to
that Dynamic World he bestrides and lives in?
Is that the future we want for our country, bland people
spiceless and spineless with weak white-bread policies?
Hollow men indeed!
The Chchch City Council is, as usual, sending mixed messages - they are now not being particularly helpful with Ceismic's Quake Box Project - they just don't seem to get the fact that if they're not part of the solution (and recovery), they are part of the problem...

Too many Johns in this story.
Guess that's what happens when you prostitute political process,

I read the tea leaves and saw
one united nation, howling
under a Banks Key moon.

the Right One,
the Brighter One.
the Shining Ones.

...because I didn't think it was all that great. But I decided it might be good for something.
...come back all is forgiven, Alex no malice was intended and I applaud the spirit in which it was originally written, we is just crowd source pedants, every little bit helps and as The Clean would have it Great Sounds Great, Good Sounds Good, So-so Sounds So-so, Bad Sounds Bad, Rotten Sounds Rotten - we cover the whole gamut... sing out if you are ever in the country and we can point your thing towards the hills that are alive with music!
I see Flying Nun have just posted this on You Tube this month - and again it is a shame they make no mention of it originally being released on Simon's Furtive Label (an offshoot of Propeller) - much the same as Flying Nun claim the Gordons first album as their release now - when it was originally self released and only distributed through F Nun for the first few years... nit picking I know, and the victors write the history...
Alex Ross - New Zealand Music
this touches many bases, and is a tidy overview for foreigners,
but once again it is a history of Flying Nun that omits the contribution
of Doug Hood (who did more of the production of Pink Frost
than Chris, as Alex Ross asserts) aside from being the technical
adept who partnered chris on the four-track forays, it was Doug's
live (and studio) mixing that captured the sound and it was his
running of the wIndsor Castle gig and national (and International)
tours that helped get all these bands heard, he took so many bands and
budding sound men under his wing and gave them a chance to fly...
- just sayin', credit where credit's also due...
