Sydney Opera House is falling down.
Brian Eno threw up some light on the Opera House a few years back too..
having a laugh…
I always giggle when someone derides “do-gooders”.
I tried to put a comment up recently (at The Press site) that the unverifiable identity of the very annoying “sock puppet” or “concern troll” commenter known as “Sheelagh” on the Press site (though ‘she’ seems to think it is her site) is possibly an artificial persona construct of the ruling elite, or maybe a ‘syntax algorithm’ (based on the recurring phrases ‘she’ uses) – all that, and my suggestion of a Turing Test for commenters went unpublished…
That darned sock puppet…
Hosking seems to have derived all his information from that nonsense editorial in The Christchurch Press some weeks back.
Interesting to note that he does not identify himself with the “chattering classes”, does this mean he does not consider himself educated or part of the Media – perhaps in good faith he should resign his role as the uncombed face of Close Up on Fridays.
How does he justify this lie: “…the simple truth is no one watches it. Not now, not since it’s been on” and he then goes on to enumerate the people that do watch it, with very dodgy math showing his complete lack of knowledge of the industry he makes his living in (as you have so excellently pointed out, Russell), how sad.
Even more sad is that he is happy to deprive not just adults, but the nation’s children of quality and intelligent shows that they love and enjoy, as the shows are stimulating and don’t patronise and pander – as most of the kids fare on the commercial channels do (so much for growing a 'knowledge economy' future).
Can Hosking assure us that he knows of no plans by his other masters (SkyCity) to enter the TV field – aside from ousting TVNZ7 (and others) from its buildings for a new convention centre if The Smiling Assassin gets his way.
