  • Capture: Two Tales of a City,

    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…

  • Hard News: Diverse Auckland: are we…, in reply to Tom Semmens,

    “Auckland” is the old tramway suburbs.

    So that's where it went off the rails!

  • Capture: Coast to Coast,

    Coats to coast...
    Looks like we are in the rinse cycle for a while down here
    wet, wet, wet...

  • Hard News: Drugs, development and reality, in reply to Richard Aston,

    Which is why the “war on drugs” thinking is so dumb.

    But the 'war on thinking'
    is going pretty well,
    don'tcha think?
    ...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?

  • Hard News: Drugs, development and reality, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    the ‘numbers’ add up…

    Why doesn’t the US just buy the lot …

    I think they probably do
    one way or another
    just off-the-books

    good ‘ol boys’ hooks
    in to click the ticket
    as it passes through
    to explode in silence -
    dead fingers don’t talk…

  • Hard News: Let's do some commerce,

    throw your alms around me…

    Kracklite –

    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…

    difficult times
    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).

    go well
    hope to see you back

    peace

    Loud conversation at Ohope beach

    look at all the space they're taking up, too!
    Some beings are sooo shellfish....

  • Hard News: Poor Choices, in reply to Russell Brown,

    Fair enough.

    Let down by her editors perhaps...

  • Hard News: Friday Music: The Mayor of…, in reply to Hebe,

    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...

    Royals tease
    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?
