Own a piece of NZ Music history…

Communication and information are at the heart of all processes, whether it is the code of language, or the code of chemistry and physics – we, and all that surrounds us, are byproducts of those interactions, not the other way round, as human hubris often insists.
You (we) have quite the battle ahead, but don’t ever give it up, even just one changed / illuminated mind is worth it…
I am currently enjoying reading Philip Ball’s Stories of the invisible a guided tour to molecules – it puts things in perspective…
9.21, is that the time!?
I’d best go put some energy into colony that allows ‘me’ to exist…
Jeez, Espiner is being a complete oik this morning
He seems to think we might care more about what he thinks his interviewees think, than letting them tell us themselves …
He needs to get out of his own way,
rather than constantly hunting the ‘soundbite’ he wants…
…or maybe they need to decide who is the good cop and who is the bad cop – him and Suzie Ferguson seem to be both posturing as the ‘bad ass’ interviewer…
It is very tiresome…
back to the future...
...the recent Simon Bridges and Victoria Forest Park thing,
Not to mention that apparently Bridges has returned from an alternate reality where Russel Norman has been a Minister in Government!
Just how much time does he spend there?
Philip K Dick eat yer heart out...
its antennae and legs look like they’re printed into the concrete
I imagine that at that scale, the distance between them and the concrete would be negligible and so they are forced into the same focal plane...
...but who knew they didn't cast shadows!
And the narrative...
...is what you get
when you put the 'rrat'*
amongst the 'naive'
telling times a'comin'
as above, so below
stepping back apace

CORONAL HOLES: NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is monitoring a pair of coronal holes straddling the sun's equator. They are the deep-blue wedges in this extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken mid-day on April 9th.
Coronal holes are places in the sun's atmosphere where the ambient magnetic field opens up and allows solar wind to escape. A double-stream of solar wind flowing from these coronal holes could reach Earth on April 13-14. It is possible that neither stream will be geoeffective as they flow north and south of our planet. On the other hand, a "brush pass" might still spark polar auroras.
Oh and by the way now's the time to spy on the neighbours!
- In only 5 days, Mars will make its closest approach to Earth since 2012. Australian astrophotograher Anthony Wesley couldn't wait. Using a 16 inch telescope, he took this picture last night:
His high-resolution image shows the rapidly evaporating north polar cap (summer began there in February), orographic clouds over the Elysium volcanoes near the Martian equator, and an even brighter blue cloud over the Hellas impact basin in the southern hemisphere. Hellas is the lowest point on Mars, and some of the haze evident there could be icy fog.
anything can happen...
everything already is..
energetic beings unite.
Espiner is a complete fail as an interviewer to be trusted, I heard him ambush someone else the other day - ya have to wonder if he is trying to kill Morning Report's credibility with both interviewees and listeners...
Sadly conjecture gussied up as 'fact' seems to be the new norm in mass media.
As an aside:
Cunliffe's bleating about his not getting as much camera time with the royals as the actual Prime Minister, John Key, was way wrongfooted - best to have said nothing than look petty and churlish.
Less is more...
Saw him being his usual patronising plonker in an excerpt on the Bowie doco Five Years last night on Prime...
