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

    Torch ginger, I think?

    Busby Berkeley eat your heart out...

    You almost have a Calendar of Calendula...

  • Capture: Labour Weekend: Town or Country?, in reply to Nora Leggs,

    milking the old Silo park again

    Can I try 3 alternative titles?
    (ok, that was largely a
    rhetorical question)

    Stairing into the abyss
    (with the drain's nadir)

    Lap dance

    Rough crossing...


    hmmm, it's gonna be a long
    short week, methinks...

    steep the tea…

    Evening, Ravensbourne

    Looks like a lovely night
    especially as you
    are so inclined…

    where words won't wend...

    And I found a stick that reminded me of something.

    oh that all memories were this sticky...

    Quarto master...

    the GES was locally fearless

    My uncle Andy used to work there,
    I still have the lead slugs he gave
    us kids with our names on...

    the ability, at age 9,
    to reproduce your name
    from a machine artifact,*
    stirs something...

    ...something I have yet
    to satisfactorily assuage.


    * well, with a stamp pad, and paper...
    a regular stationery engine-driver!

    ...revelling in geekdom...

    shiny, shiny,
    shiny 'bots
    in leather...


    ( sorry Lou... )

  • OnPoint: H4x0rs and You, in reply to Caleb D'Anvers,

    Clocking out...

    ...this sounds like a series of working norms that will produce, almost by design, superficial, inaccurate, and poorly analysed “stories” that just happen to perpetuate the interests of the already powerful.

    <reminiscences, early 21st century>

    I remember it was raining
    that Labour Day they cracked
    the Great Game's DNA...
    Bucketing down,
    sluicing away the webs,
    veils and screens...
    We were a torrent of bits
    acting as one -
    pooling our resources,
    eddies not snarls,
    going with the flow,
    putting the luv
    in diluvial...

    </reminiscences, early 21st century>

    YMMV

  • Capture: Labour Weekend: Town or Country?, in reply to Hebe,

    pizzarea...

    ...collapsing calzone

    which part of chch is that?
    ;- )

    Could be a nice twist for the harbour region's marketing
    conflating caldera and zones
    while smelling Madeira and scones
    a tiny pizza paradise...

  • OnPoint: H4x0rs and You, in reply to Lew Stoddart,

    graft n scoop....

    “must understand complex specialist information”

    ... but whatever happened to MSM reporters having "Rounds", specialist areas in which they built up knowledge, contacts and credibility, usually under the tutelage of some seasoned editor, or, er, grizzled 'hack' ...
    This seems to have almost disappeared, as the norm....

  • OnPoint: MSD's Leaky Servers, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    swept away...

    Wait, am I channelling Paula Bennett?

    Not just her, but Gerry "Scorched Earth" Brownlee and Hekia "Pariah" Parata as well - that's quite some torrent we now have gouging the country...
