    Submit to the state...

    On the convention centre: the Council is calling for
    submissions on the City Plan

    What's the point Boffa Miskell and co are tasked with that job, we'll all know what size and where the Convention centre will be in 77 days....

    ...and we have 20 days in which to make submissions on the Governments latest iteration of the wheel in regard to education facilities in Chchch - a one site fits all campus - toddler to tertiary, I can't wait! There is no mention of charter schools, but obviously with a white elephant, er, project this big they would need to let 'the market decide and direct' and to 'take on board commercial partners' and all the usual hot air and blather - I wonder how many millions they will spend:

    ...investigating the development of education campuses that could include early-childhood education, primary and secondary schools, and tertiary institutions on one site, along with social services.,

    Hell, we used to call that a town...

    The GC - Garden Centre...
    <an aside> also scary to see the Australians retaliating
    we sent them Mozzies and they've sent us fruity male strippers
    er, voracious fruit flies...

    Eye in the sky...
    this ain't strictly pinhole related
    but is about vantage points....
    When TV7 goes I have found a
    strangely addictive alternative
    The Abbey Rd Studio crossing webcam...
    hilarity to be had in the archives
    and you can hear everything as well
    I watched a street cleaner with
    a squeaky wheel just before...

    13 workers....

    There still seems to be covenants though.

    Sutton on his hands...
    I noticed a great new interpretation of the CERA acronym in one of The Press comment threads yesterday... Carting Earthquake Rubble Away - and that really is all they seem to have any success at.


    Keeping up with the Jonestowns...
    Chchch Council assets are back in the Government's sights - with another wonderfully glib doublespeak quote from Brownlee:

    "We were never saying or even trying to imply that they needed to go out and sell their assets but they do have the capacity to raise cash against those assets ... Notwithstanding what [English] said, we are not forcing them to do anything. It's not our decision."

    Brownlee wants us to drink the same Koolaid that Bill English is selling at his lemonade stall/garage sale....

  • Capture: Howling at the Moon,

    Do papers no longer pay freelance photographers?

    Would Peter Parker have to turn to a life of crime if he couldn't sell his Spiderman pics to The Daily Bugle?

    Recently I did a collaged cover for an e-book for a friend, who diligently sought out the original pulp artists (or their estates) for their approval, one was completely happy about their element's use, another spat the dummy - fair enough, we didn't use that bit...
