    Which I helped with, a simple piece made from 'found images' - a small video of my microwave after a powercut and Blair's video of a psychedelic top, from which he skilfully created this Travelogue clip

  • Speaker: Compulsory voting and election turnout,

    Can we get some grown-ups in here…

    Well,if I just draw a cock on my ballot paper
    rather than not turning up …

    To paraphrase what someone said to me the other day…
    Why would somebody need to unnecessarily sexualise this discussion?
    How does that help or expand the discussion?
    For someone who presumably wants their opinions to be taken as an adult’s it seems to be a very counter-productive shtick.
    Which has a very apt rhyme…

    Just sayin’…

    Denial... She’s a big river.

  • Hard News: The humanity, in reply to Farmer Green,

    I think that by now , the environmental and social effects are pretty damned obvious.

    Not if folk keep their heads neck deep in that depleted soil...

    seed no evil
    herd no evil
    spike no evil

    ends up with heirless apes...

  • OnPoint: Sunlight Resistance, in reply to Katharine Moody,

    I teach ethics to environmental science students at tertiary level. It’s amazing how few have been exposed to the subject.

    I'm wondering how much it would cost to send everyone in New Zealand (or even just the ones who voted for Key (the "Trouble Clef') or his ilk, a copy of David Suzuki's brilliant The Sacred Balance
    Every school kid should read it...
    or at least watch..

    One of the quotes he uses that encapsulates the problem is:

    We live in an age of unprecedented uncertainty. Life on Earth is perilously poised at the precipice of extinction. Never before has man possessed the destructive resources to commit global suicide.
    ...
    We must convince each generation that they are transient passengers on this planet Earth. It does not belong to them. They are not free to doom generations yet unborn. They are not at liberty to erase humanity's past nor dim its future.
    - Bernard Lown & Evjuenui Chasov

    and

    To become human, one must make room in
    oneself for the wonders of the universe.
    - South American Indian saying

  • OnPoint: Sunlight Resistance, in reply to John Armstrong,

    multiple manifestations...

    ....not that John Armstrong

    There used to be four (4) 'Ian Dalziels' in Canterbury, we all thought we were the 'Ian Dalziel' of course, I'm sure...
    I ran into an old acquaintance recently who I hadn't seen for many years, who told me he went to my funeral, but was late, and didn't realise till half way thru, when he saw someone else's service sheet, that it wasn't me... how we laughed.
    Its a tontine with no prize to be the last one!

    Ps: to repeat Wilde's apposite epithet:
