rock on everyone.
Ah, so it will be ok if I wear either my bright red Stooges t-shirt or my bright red Throwing Muses t-shirt tomorrow... ; )
Which party believes in doing what’s right for New Zealand?
Leading questions like this are always weird, as if some parties actually believe what they're doing is wrong.
I mean, you can argue that some parties' policies are better or worse, but the parties themselves always genuinely believe what they're doing is for the greater good, as opposed to deliberately doing wrong.
I’m guessing the other one, for records and music, is the Don MacGlashan College…?;- )
Boom, boom ! No, the far more prosaic Kaikorai Primary, alas.
It really has been a most craaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzyyyyyyyyyy election campaign.
I'll vote mid-morning, then go to a couple of nearby school fairs. The John MacGlashan College one is usually pretty good for scoring a couple of decent books cheap, so here's hoping.
Nothing specific planned for the afternoon, then just plan to watch TV3. I cannot abide Seven Sharp and shudder to think how unctuous Mike Hosking will be all evening, especially if it looks like National will win on the night.
Admittedly TV3 looks like it'll have Paul Henry, but at least it'll only be as a occasional commentator and not as the main presenter. Then it really would be a pox on both their houses.
Other than that, all I can say is "vote early and vote often", etc.
I'm listening to WFMU in New Jersey and commented on the playlist. I noted that another comment was from an "X Key" so I asked if it was after "X Key Score." He said no, but was aware of "The Moment Of Truth" event and the impact / fall-out from Greenwald and Snowden's revelations. The internets really does make the world a smaller place !
Peter Gutteridge Memorial Service to be at Forsyth Barr Stadium 'J' entrance 11-2 Tuesday. Followed by a private burial.
This info has just been posted on Peter's F/b page by Stu Kawowski.
A memorial and condolences book for Peter has been set up in the foyer of Dunedin Public Library, I've just heard.
Chris Heazlewood is flying back with Peter's body tomorrow, so presumably there'll be a service at the weekend or early next week.
Grant McDougall is working on a tribute, which I’ll post as soon as he’s done.
Written about half of it, will have it to you by 6pm.
I haven’t forgotten Bill English’s disastrous time as leader although he looks pretty statesman like now. I think you’re right, he has the broadest appeal, but I suspect Joyce might have the numbers in the party.
Maybe, but English has stood down as Clutha / Southland MP and gone on the list only, which suggests he's started to think about life after politics. He's been an MP since 1990, so could well be starting to tire of it.
Deborah Mahuta Coyle's day job in comms for the Petroleum Exploration and Production Association had much if any bearing on the discussion on Q&A today,
Her column in today's Sunday Star Times about what Peters will do in negotiations was utter tripe as well, nothing more than a string of vacuous clichés that told me nothing I didn't already know.
She was also labeled as being from the left, with Hooten being the other columnist speculating on Peters. I wonder if the SST know she's just a PR for a lobby group ? Bloody hopeless and frustrating.
