  • Southerly: Continuing After A Short Interruption,

    Polly math…

    The elderly lady swivelled her head in my direction and gave me a long, condemnatory stare.
    Possibly the sort of accusing gaze that you inflict upon a man who…

    …would two-and-a-half-years later still recycle his daughter in a clearly labelled child killing bag!

  • Capture: Upside Down, Inside Out, in reply to ChrisW,

    out of reach?

    the real twisted (foot) bridge over the Avon looked profoundly sculptural and more meaningfully so than that Hagley pond effort? Does it yet survive?

    I believe it now warps under wraps at Ferrymead Heritage Park...

    everything but the gill...
    Nice to see that Andrea Vance is a Public Address reader...
    ...or if not flattery by imitation, it must be a resonant cultural meme...

  • Capture: Spring Breaks, in reply to Nora Leggs,

    Life's a birch...

    ...purty sky through the birches out front
    Here’s its messy urban twin.

    When this happens just
    keep a song in your heart...
    Betula (pendula) by golly, wow!

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Just Kids,

    Beached wail...
    Speaking of the American songbook classics…
    a friend sent me this gem (h/tip CT),
    I believe it is a very good test for asthma.
    I found breathing hard at points…

    grab your inhalers, and get ready…

    more bass (less snapper)...

    this piece of brilliance

    Wonderful!

    How art is made, indeed!
    quickly, intuitively and to
    capture a moment...

    I'm sure the crowd-funded opera
    Hansard A quest down power's dark paths can't be far away...
    ...meanwhile where is a worthy vehicle (beyond the net), like Media3 f'rinstance, that could give legs to these guys at an incubator stage, to go explore the duets and mini operettas of Question-time and its cast of aspersions...
    Not just the Concert Program, has to be wider...
    is student radio still having fun?

    I'm sure there's always room for
    a G&S version of GoT (or WoW)...

    living in the Tron...

    “GCSB doesn’t even operate their own spy cloud.

    ... it's a bit sad that,
    of all countries,
    Aotearoa has no
    intelligence cloud
    to call its own...

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Just Kids, in reply to Chris Waugh,

    More than this...

    One of the world’s most commonly misinterpreted songs

    Indeedily. It sure ain't the Homeland uber alles many think...

    Critic Marcus Greil says about "Born in the U.S.A." : "Clearly the key to Bruce's popularity is in a misunderstanding. He is a tribute to the fact that people hear what they want to hear."

    Maybe a reissue: Suborn in the USA...

    or a more contemporary rerelease
    could start with the end:
    Nowhere to run... nowhere to go

    “Little Brother” by Cory Doctorow

    and available as a free download from Cory 'boing boing' Doctorow at Craphound

    ...and while you're there, grab Makers as well for a FAB read...

    Cory actually knows a bit about this stuff too, so it’s probably worth reading...

    ...even Google listens...
