facing the music...
But how much is the artist getting?
any of the the 136 artists?
or their estates?
Great for the consumer, but it just doesn't seem fair ...
... do they get a say?
...or are they licensed to be sold for a pittance with Sony probably taking the lion's share for production of the object - sorta like the F Nun box set which cost so much to produce none of the artists saw a cent - but way worse...
other finds included:
from back when we did need steenkin’ badges
Red Mole (Barry Linton graphic)
Wide Mouthed Frogs (Not sure who created that graphic – I was gonna say Fane Flaws, but the Wide Mouthed Frogs were all female I think – supplying Tina Matthews and Jenny Morris for The Crocodiles… )
Toy Love – a very restrained badge…
and a Peter Posa record (with friends)
See sea bed for shore...
I'm really, really liking Blair Parkes' recent visual recordings on New Brighton beach...
...like this one of Beach Glass
Check out the rest:
- on the beach
- birds and crabs
Now there's a man who should do a guest photopost here...
Orwell that ends well...
...it's 1984, Hakanoa Street, the Tall Dwarfs release a new EP, - Chris, as always made myriad nifty promotional cards, and Fimo badges - I think I got that one for Christmas...
We also made The Brain That Wouldn't Die under the house, well Chris made it - with a Nun star studded cast, and me as a hunchback...
Ian Danziel picture museum
...that Danziel knows nothing!
But The Ian Dalziel Book Orphanage and Silverfish Petting Ranch is well underway...
et tu, Ioannes? ...or just utu?
Labour , how dare you not be funded by millionaires.
Friends, Voters, countrymen, lend me your million ears.
I come to bury Labour, not to praise them.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones.
So let it be with Labour.
(Though I'm guessing John 'Legacy' Key
will be personally hoping for an inverse ending
in the reputational burial stakes...)
ps - I was gonna go with the 'A2 Brutus' line
but sensitive types might have thought I was
calling Key a big sheet...
(in Australian obviously!)
Ashes to ashes...
all self-sown, growing up the rock wall to complement the steps
Bordering on a herbaceous salute to the sun…?
A tree (in Westmere.)
make ’em bright round that way
A weste holding a backward dream state?
More lies from the Emperor.
Nevermind the fibs, look at the new threads he's wearing,
ohhh... he isn't...
like a virgin… ?
Act II: in which he who should not be referred to as a pampered menial becomes a ‘well kept man’, or is he just a one ‘made man’ band?
ACT leader David Seymour has been sworn in as New Zealand’s first parliamentary under-secretary since 2005, with Prime Minister John Key signalling a ministerial post lies ahead.
He now holds the roles of parliamentary under-secretary to the minister of education and to the minister for regulatory reform.
He will also serve on the finance and expenditure select committee.
The under-secretary position means Seymour will not be subject to questions in the House. It appears he will not be subject to the Official Information Act also.
