  • Hard News: Walking upright again, in reply to Steve Barnes,

    The Shining...

    Somebody called me “Bright” tonight.

    That's you and the future days...
    Brighter is the coming malaise...

    <an aside>
    Brights Disease is a kidney affliction
    It haunts H P Lovecraft's fiction
    Slithering old horrors aside
    Beware crystal concretions inside
    Renal hell defies the red tide
    : – )

    time for breakfast then
    and to get me, and some
    washing, out in the sun...

    and a reminder that The Bats play Dunedin tonight
    Chchch Tomorrow (Sat) at The CPSA at CPIT
    (Dux Live still not cleared for opening
    - bloody red tape, this town has a bung ticker...)

  • OnPoint: 3 News Exclusive Investigation…, in reply to Steve Barnes,

    In our cups...

    Start building a retirement wine cellar now.

    We just had a RWC,
    complete with screwy caps
    and sommelier changing rooms
    they say it was a bottler battle,
    corker! Vintage stuff,
    sour grapes and all...

  • Hard News: Presentation and Reality, in reply to Steve Barnes,

    ACT, apparently, is an acronym for Association
    of Consumers and Tax payers

    A O CAT P has a much better ring to it!
    current Govt = reigning Cats n Dogs...
    as it were, as u were...

  • Hard News: On Science,

    Data book...

    Physical scientists in NZ...

    Could be a fund raising calendar in this...

    Marketing would be a field day:
    "Buff Boffins"
    "Merry Quantum Physiques"
    "Test Tube Babes"
    "Buyer Chemistry"
    "DeSIRe - A Lab of Love"
    "Recherché Researchers"
    "In their element..."
    Not so much a Calendar
    as a Periodic Table...

  • Cracker: Spotted,

    the chickens less counted...

    A4isms...

    on stooping to google...
    I find others have well and truly beat me to this
    bloody morphic hive mind
    (or obvious word plays)
    Damn, and I thought I was being clever
    c'est la vie

    there have been A4 exhibitions in the past in NZ
    based I think on those early cigar box exhibitions
    - there used to be a gallery in Chchch that had an
    annual exhibition where all art work was restricted
    to the common size of a cigar box lid
    and this guy - Ed Musante too

    and then there's the Cornellesque assemblages using
    cigar boxes as a common starting point... like Spencer Bohren

    I like the Alexander Bartleet creations
    - plasticscene strata sorta

    I'm enjoying your blog Mr Cauchi
    and love your line art
    (we share a fascination with Mayan Codex it seems)
    have you thought of doing an artist's Music Muse compilation
    - like this one

    and you mention artists books have you made any of these
    and I wonder if you'd like to make cards of some of your works
    (pin money perhaps - but spreads the ideas)
    I ask because I am set up to print and produce
    cards and small booklets (shameless self-promotion)
    (I Print David Haywood's excellent
    Albert the Otter book - The Hidden Talent of Albert Otter )
    if you are interested in exploring that idea - email me
    (I've reactivated my email link above
    - time to reconnect with the world....)

  • Legal Beagle: Referendum Fact Check #6:…, in reply to David Hood,

    Pryer engagement….

    Because I have trouble not doing extensive unasked
    research on topics for no reward

    There must be a suitable name for that wonderful condition…
    :- )

  • Hard News: We interrupt this broadcast ...,

    More Kissing Key photos...
    Cup day photos from The Press, The man is a self promotion machine ..
    - I notice in the comments someone was (rightly) outraged that John Key kept talking during the minute's silence for the Earthquake victims!
    - he's a classy guy all right...

  • Cracker: Spotted, in reply to merc,

    taking the pith…

    Like most pursuits there’s plenty of sayings.

    Standardised as A4isms…


    Gripe water colours…

    …this little tube of a special colour
    and then griped about the price

    Burnt umbrage?


    Petering out…

    …but then he also painted nude on stage.
    Potters are way more fun.

    Bare tricks?

    Some are born with the shtick some with the basil.

  • Legal Beagle: Infrequently asked questions, in reply to FletcherB,

    mmmmm MP....

    It’s not lazy, it’s realistic….
    they only have to stand for a month or two,
    and then sit for the next three years.

    from poll position
    to income bent...
