  • Up Front: Neither Deep nor Wide,

    Excellent travel memories! I have several old browning Brownie photos of my father floating in the Dead Sea during the war years. He would also label snaps of the locals with "A Wog" and "Another Wog". Ah, the past is another country.....

    I had my own grumble about MTV and their obstructionist practices. We had a good view of Pearl Jam from the terraces until they raised their platform and completely obscured it.

    But I wished that I had warned me about the sauce lurking in the pork belly thingy. One bite and it deposited itself as technicolor mess down my front. The evening proved to be stickier than I anticipated.
    I was wondering if the Metro Cube was a success ... A good idea but it seemed to be ignored by the greater mass of seething teens.

    I popped into The Cube a couple of times, but never at the right time to catch your appearance. But Arcade Fire were all I hoped for--Regine Chassange more to the centre stage than before, cranking up her hurdy-gurdy, the smiling African drummers, Win Butler in great form, and yes--the confetti shower. Only spoilt for a few moments by some cream of NZ youth in front of us, blocking the view, snorting coke, talking on cellphones, and paying nil attention to the music. They were have better off hanging out with bloody Beady Eye,

    Thanks, Russell. Didn't know about this, when I should have.

    I got to 75 movies (in a cinema, where they should be seen) last year,

    This is a damn interesting interview, between Tavi,and Lorde. Two very intelligent young women in deep conversation about important things.

  • Hard News: Media data, in reply to Yamis,

    I got a similar letter from them. Must be their stock standard response.
    It is a load of cobblers to claim that 'most companies ... In the same manner'. Only where there is a complete monopoly and nil competition for lay services.

    I recently was sent a market research survey asking for my opinion of Sky. A bit of a mistake sending it to me!

    This would be Mark Ellen and David Hepworth of the late--and much lamented-- The Word magazine?

    Ah, MTV. What a bloody disgrace it is today but I recall its beginnings, when I began my PhD studies in Ohio in late 1979. Seeing Prince and Little Red Corvette for the first time! Hearing Tom Waits The Piano is Drunken, which a local sleazy bar used to close down proceedings in the early hours of the morning .....
