Good buy Mr Chips…
What ever happened to the egalitarian principals
this country was founded on?
They were all replaced by Charter Schools?
Apparently they get a better rate of interest…
I’m a tad disappointed that the TV’s not plugged in....
shades of Hunter S Thompson's FALILV Samoan lawyer in a bathtub scene...
I do remember though, that an imploding TV tube though a PA sounds pretty damn loud - during Toy Love's Tuesday residency at The Civic in sydney, we had built up a scrappy backdrop of old televison sets (an ode to the joys of inner city, inorganic rubbish collection days) some working and badly tuned - one of which which Chris rammed the mike stand base through, as a rousing finale for one memorable version of Frogs!
You've nailed it!
I’m sure Carpen tree must fit in there somehow
Wooden it, though!...
..take a bough.
...the shade of mature trees!
My favourite place to read...
what a cycle...
is not a book
a pulpy shade of
a former tree?
is not reading
of turning leaves?
So perhaps writely we might be in a wordwood:
His tree - ashes of alders, and other pageant trees
Mist tree - coppice and robbers, Larch villains, etc
Lit tree works including:
Poet tree - arbor teary diatribes and diversification
Sophis tree - willowy words from a thicket
and so on....
buoyed with optimism...
...now that opens up a raft of possibilities!
(who may have been in the Playthings)
He wasn't in this iteration of the Playthings, though...
...but he was definitely Expendable!

Hang on, I thought rule number one round here was: "Don't be a deck!"
(heads for changing rooms)
I wrote for Cha Cha as Wayne Washington
and Shake! as Steven Spencer.
What with Brian White and RIU's Elvis Slag,
did any real people, write for these mags?
I still have some extra copies if anyone has room, or need… (the joys of a grassroots distribution system, full copy returns, and a faulty hoarding gene…)
a linchpin photon gatherer for both Rip It Up, ChaCha and even Shake! as well…
Speaking of Shake!, I still have mint(ish) copies of many of these, too (with posters and stickers intact!!) if anyone is interested in reliving a youth…
…and I hear Rip It Up is free again, shame I don’t go anywhere I might pick one up.
While Planet was ‘big’, The Manipulator was truly Big!
At 70cm tall and more than a metre across a double page it was almost too big to be true. Larger than most tables, it could only be read spread out on the floor of a cool loft apartment!
Sadly, some sharply stylish Lepisma saccharina and creeping mold ate through most of my, devilishly hard to store, copies…
…the entropy tango strikes a pose!
They can do things we never could…
This take on web comics is a nice fusion of old school / new school…
…though I miss the old pulpy paper and clunky inks.
(speaking of which – this fine book on NZ comics will make a grand Christmas present for many this year… – I couldn’t wait!)
