  • Hard News: "Because we can", in reply to Russell Brown,

    It would require more empathy than they typically display.

    And just wait until Health Minister Ryall gets wind of this initiative...

    Do we have the bottle…?

    A Hundertwasser precinct…

    …and why not take a punt on an underwater precinct…
    Live the Life Aquatic in the East,
    Rise to the Delta Dawn in New Fenland…
    (or Nova Avondale)
    Slough off the weary past
    Life is wet
    Dive in!

    hmmm, Bottle Lake could be Venice in firs!

    Hound dogging them around...

    Isn't this a job for Keith Ng?

    Hmmm, intriguingly, Keith Ng

    Fun of piles
    - for the whole family

    giant screw augers
    boring holes,
    thumpers thumping
    down the poles…

    (with a minor edit) I see
    a useful (and fun)
    kids' book emerging
    - go for it!

  • Capture: Spring is Like a Perhaps Hand, in reply to Lilith __,

    and

    when I read about NZ On Air funding a Wellington crew to make a film about the Chch earthquakes, and I’ve been reflecting on...

    - How cynical I have become...
    - How nothing much surprises me anymore...
    - How The Eastern chose the right cardinal...
    - How much the Hope and Wire premise sounds like Treme...

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Scary Young, in reply to Graham Reid,

    keep a song in yer heart...

    Don McGlashan’s uplifting but also politically barbed speech. An important message at this time.

    Way to go Don...
    I liked this bit:

    When songs work, they put down roots deep into culture. If someone from the next century wanted to know what life was like right here, right now, they'd go straight to the music that we're making and listening to, and the music would tell them. It's that cultural value and power that songs have that we come here every year to celebrate.
    There's political power. The power of music and songs to change things.

    especially in light of of this piece about Phil Lynott's mum stopping Romney using The Boys are Back in Town at his rallies.

    Kind of a strange song for a Mormon to choose I'd have thought...

    Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
    Down at Dino's bar and grill
    The drink will flow and blood will spill
    And if the boys want to fight, you'd better let them

  • Capture: Wellington? Well, I Would., in reply to Jarno van der Linden,

    We are amused...

    360 degree panorama from the Mount Victoria lookout

    I used to live in a house just under that transmission tower at the 360 start, not the white installation visible but on the other side of that hill about level with the mans waist... but also level with the landing planes...
