Motorists live in this fantasy place where there’s infinite oil that can be burned with no consequences…
Just read this book about a very possible future with rationed water too…
…well worth a look.
Two taxi stories in The Press today – one with two men robbing a driver and one where it looks like taxi drivers took Ecan (and people with mobility issues ultimately) for a ride…
There’s no sense of fare play, or fare pay, it seems down here.
I got the impression that Key was espousing his personal position, or that of the caucus coterie, which is a very small sample and not (as you point out) in line with the wishes of the people of the country, including a compelling number of National voters.
Key doesn't get to govern based on his own wishes - has anyone explained that to him properly.
Just came across this great Chchch nostalgia site today:
lotsa great photos of pre quake chchch, and a diverse selection of posters of interest
I was looking for posters by Chris Grosz from the Velvet Glove (a ’70s venue) – if anyone out there has any…
this site of older stuff was interesting too…
Now that's entertainment - Who needs books?
an entertainment option if you are in Chchch tonight...
Lizzie Marvelly calls out Uber for it's stance.
...and it is worth noting that Uber is an anagram of Rube.
But wait there’’s more!
Back in the ’80s Chchch’s Music World did some fine releases of odd overseas genres – they had a brilliant german super rock album and this gem Pillows and Prayers a compilation of Cherry Red Records releases for 1982 and 1983 – pay no more than $2.99 -indeed!
theres a Special AKA album too (in the Studio) and great comics and stuff – see: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=1629586
for the whole range…
have a look at these tracks from Pillows & Prayers
Atilla the Stockbroker
Speaking of The Saints I just happen to be releasing a rare Laughing Clowns (Ed Kuepper) LP back into the wild
Not to mention two great NZ compilations – both great snapshots of their times.
How was the air up there – a brilliant K-Tel compilation (!) of NZ ‘60s hits – our ’Nuggets’ perhaps
and Pagan’s fine Kiwi compilation – Positive Vibrations from 1989
Clandestine labs used to cook up methamphetamine have been found in houses, garages, motel rooms, business premises and vehicles. Between 2000 and 2012, Police discovered more than 1,800 of them around New Zealand. A record 211 clan labs were found in 2006, but the total tracked downwards to 94 in 2012. Yvonne Powley, who chairs the Auckland Regional Methamphetamine Working Group, says Police can only uncover the tip of the iceberg. “The meth makers are very mobile, they go from place to place, so the problem keeps increasing every year. It is a big issue. The impact on people who discover they’re renting or have purchased a contaminated property is huge.”
