    Seems like an appropriate place for this: I was too slow to book for Nick Cave in Auckland in December. All tickets, all gone. So, jf someone finds them with a spare ticket they want to on-sell, I would be ever so grateful. Unless, of course, they add another concert in NZ, as they have in Oz.

  • Hard News: Hope and Wire,

    I admire 'When A City Falls' but it is a bit misdirected to compare it directly with 'Hope and Wire'. The former is a documentary in content, style and intent; the latter is docu-drama, which engages with notions of memory, reconstruction, perspective and dramatisation. You need to place it within the work of Gaylene (such as Home By Christmas) and other film-makers who deliberately re-work conventions of veracity, memory and authentication.

  • Hard News: Hope and Wire,

    I dunno. I was genuinely impressed by the first screening, I did not assume that its intent was to be a documentary,

    On other media contributions, lovely interview in the Herald this morning, Russell.

  • Hard News: Radio New Zealand: changing…, in reply to Russell Brown,

    Which reminds me, Russell, how are things going with MediaMatters? I am looking to Semester B teaching and it would good to be able to take students on field trips again.

    RNZ has gone rather dullish in the weekday afternoons. I think it needs new voices.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: F**kYouTube, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    A good time for local films, it seems (hobbits, excluded of course!) Fantail has been getting enthusiastic reviews, we went to a full house for What We Do In the Shadows on Friday night (much guffawing), and Dark Horse and Jake are coming soon.

    Also, the All Blacks on Saturday night were the bees-knees. Glad we got tickets.

  • Hard News: The Big Chill, in reply to HORansome,

    Certainly not for the money. It hadn't helped Alan Duff pay off his debts.

    I had a bizarre experience a year or two ago when I contributed a chapter to an edited collection published by the German outfit Springer. After jumping up and down, they sent me a copy but over-valued it so much that I had to pay NZ Customs over $100 before they would release it.
