  • Hard News: What you lookin' at?,

    I have long admired the work of Gavin and his writing partner Rachel Lang. They have also been very generous in coming down to talk to my students. But somehow I can't yet bring myself to watch Filthy Rich. It is being recorded and I may get to it but only once a space between The Walking Dead* and the new Night Manager (TV One) appears--or once I can wrench the remote away from my dearly beloved and her fixation with The Zone channel.

    * I have a quick trip to a conference in Atlanta GA at the end of this month and I could get you a tshirt.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: You are among friends,

    Oh, bugger! Anthonie Tonnon has been my most-played music this summer (so perfect for long road trips) but I have a prior commitment in March 11. My colleague Gareth Schott is playing at the Hamilton Fringe Festival.
    But I do have Sufjan Stevens next week.

    Sometimes, there is too much to see and hear over the summer months,

  • Up Front: Five,

    Yes, Christchurch folk don't need such sanctimonious advice from people like Sister Mary Whatever, I have a friend who has finally had enough, after the last shake, and selling up, to move back to Australia.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: The great full eight,

    I love Anthonie Tonnon's 'Successor'. Such great music for long road trips. Even more impressed to receive friendly emails from him, when I asked about future gigs,

  • Speaker: A Better Man,

    Like .., and even more likes. Indeed, a multitude of likes. A politician who is no mere fanboy but who writes with intelligence and (that much abused word) passion.

    The Kawhia Kai Festival on Waitangi Day. This year we did manage to travel there on the right day. The watermelon halves with ice cream were surprisingly refreshing . Scanned old newspapers in the dinky Kawhia Museum, to find ads for talkies screening in both Kawhia and Oparau in 1932.

    Interesting to see the faces of familiar radio voices. Hope it works.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Bowie, Original…, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    The British comedian Jimmy Carr, in his Auckland performance, made the crack that, 'Now that Bowie is dead, at least everyone else left in the world is a little cooler'.
