    Flex your JPSE...

    ...ad nauseum

    ...but he did spell ad nauseam correctly!
    That's still gotta be worth points?
    right?

    I found this an interesting read...

    ...ta for that
    adds up better than the official stories...

    Please tell me this is not just some piece of political skulduggery.

    While not saying anything out loud, it does smack of Putin's usual set up publicity ops (except he kept his shirt on this time) - perhaps a nice piece of 'political theatre' staged by US and Russia to keep the 'peeps' scared, but on side...

    Be the change…

    That she’s had the drive and desire to get this far to me indicates that she’s unlikely to be satisfied by a quiet life just making music for her friends.
    And that even if this is just a flash in the USA she has quite a future.

    …and on that note I give you Janis Eddy Fink
    Janis Ian – at seventeen

    Janis Ian – ’At Seventeen’ – at twenty-five…


    One is reassured by the fine local examples of Bic Runga and Hayley Westenra, that the harsh environment is survivable, they have kept on song, and on track admirably…

    and lest we forget our own free-range…:

    <less words
    + more listening
    = the quiet life…>

    Try Christchurch.

    I read* that Ngaire Button tried to pull her nomination for Councillor after Sue Wells bailed without telling her - it appears Wells decided not to run because she was only there to support Bob, and seemingly unbeknownst to Wells, Button thought she was there to support Wells, and beyond that, well, turtles all the way down, I guess...

    * Chchch Star I think, but they're virtually unsearchable...

    de devil is in de tail…

    “You know all those TV ads where I said ‘It’s Not Okay’? Well ….”

    …Shane Jones (the Master of Mixed Meta-force) has alerted me to this one thing you can do with bungee cord or docking rings!

    I'm going to tie a bungee cord around the sensitive spot, and then I'm going to get those callipers and cut them. And then the trader from Wall Street and then the mercenary of capitalism can suffer what he deserves - a dead cat bounce.

    He's a dag that Shane!

    Now if you are still worried about 'crutching' here are some real dags, real kiwis, real kiwi music, the excellent Country Calendar Daggy and the Dickheads mini-doco - enjoy

    Speaking of history, you probably all noticed that Yahoo! changed its logo last week…
    I’m wondering how much the designers got for the quick conversion to Optima font?

    …as per the nifty link at boingboing I’ve saved ya big bucks Russell – there’s your new masthead (above)!

    Win some…
    A gamine enigma, I imagine…
    Quod semper, natural homunculi exert avuncular avidity…
    a continuum that stretches, with interest, from agreeable, engaging and on thru engrossing to beyond the pale…


    I suspect Sweetman fancies hisself as a KiwiBukowski, perhaps his mean muse, 'Miss Ogenie', has moved in, rather than deserting him?

    frittering away...

    I wonder where Islander is?

    Whitebaiting!
    I'd warrant,
    well, posit, then...

    On the West Coast the whitebait season
    runs from 1 September until 14 November.
