Have the scales finally been pulled from Brownlee’s eyes?
Brownlee ‘let down’ by EQC
Good that he takes it so personally…
Optimism is such a fragile construct here
these days, and no 'feathered things' in sight…
“Auckland” is the old tramway suburbs.
So that's where it went off the rails!
Coats to coast...
Looks like we are in the rinse cycle for a while down here
wet, wet, wet...
(note link updates in realtime)
Which is why the “war on drugs” thinking is so dumb.
But the 'war on thinking'
is going pretty well,
...and we're only just starting to get a glimpse at how much may have been diverted and spent, on that particular area of governmental paranoia!
To what end?
the ‘numbers’ add up…
Why doesn’t the US just buy the lot …
I think they probably do
one way or another
good ‘ol boys’ hooks
in to click the ticket
as it passes through
to explode in silence -
dead fingers don’t talk…
throw your alms around me…
Things are strange all over at the moment,
there is a disturbance in ‘The Force’ ,
or at least an outbreak of ‘Novelty’
co-existing with uncloaked realities…
change and cycles
chains n sickles
there’s no logic
I for one have always valued your comments/contributions, perhaps not always agreed, but I have had my eyes (and mind) opened further by access to a different viewpoint.
I suspect some shelves of our libraries are very similar, and that despite your observations above, Public Address does give us all ‘Common Ground’ – a welcome respite from the ‘Blasted Heath’ other similar sites can present.
I see ‘begging’ as just one word on the continuum of ‘asking’ or ‘informing’… I didn’t read any imploring, beseeching or sponging elements into Russell’s post – just a lifting of the bonnet to reveal the engine and the observation that it does need lubricating and powering – ya don’t need to be a Toyota to get the corollary…
and one can act as one sees fit…
I don’t mind a tithe to a community I live in
or access to their attention should I have something to offer
quid pro quo
And then again it is sometimes good to pull back and get away from the devices and too much information (I’ve done that myself here).
hope to see you back
Loud conversation at Ohope beach
look at all the space they're taking up, too!
Some beings are sooo shellfish....
Let down by her editors perhaps...
I didn’t read this until Sunday night.
don't worry - it was cancelled,
ground still too wet...
do the gig guide every Friday
The Press does do a pretty good job with Go...
I just cherry pick anything that interests me
or seems underpublicised
or seems like it would be useful
or of (wide or narrow) interest to PA
or if people I know are involved
- with my usual 'random factor ethic'.
It would be better done earlier
than the day before too, but hey...
I wonder does Lorde (Ella/Joel) get live performance royalties from the Springsteen concert cover?
How does that work?
Is it based on crowd size or door take?
