  • Speaker: Losing cultural treasures under…, in reply to Lucy Telfar Barnard,

    But quoting, sampling, retelling, reframing etc – what if I don’t want the thing I’ve created quoted, sampled, retold, or reframed? If I’ve created it, don’t I have that right? Or is that the moral right mentioned earlier, separate from copyright?

    Should that right exist in perpetuity?

    Courtesy of Gilles Peterson, tracing the history of London’s Pirate Radio stations. These (and Peel) made me fall in love with radio. The chaos and freedom of the north and east London dub pirate stations was a joy.

    Oh, great tip! It was Passion and Lighting for us in Brixton.

    Until this week, I thought it was “And I quietly count with a gun …”

    You are not the only one.

    is it just me?

    Definitely not just you. The 10-minute cricket skit that turned out to be a setup for John Key was just weird.

    Although many of us in the crowd on Twitter last night did take what might be described as a perverse pleasure in watching.

  • Hard News: Talking @Splore, in reply to Sacha,

    Wish I was physically up to a festival experience right now.

    Being at Splore involves a non-trivial amount of effort. There can be quite a bit of going up and down the hill.

    Thanks for that Simon. I copied the URL out of a Facebook message and effing Facebook added effing Facebook garbage to it.

    I am glad you kept an ampersand (&) between ‘Art’ and ‘Soul’ – people have called me something similar to ‘art soul’ in the past…

    Heh. I seem to recall bFM having an arts commentary feature called 'Arts Hole' at one point ...

    Yes, to a certain extent I think we forget how lucky we are. The end-of-year Northern Hemisphere All Black tours are always a mixed blessing because the quality of the rugby broadcasts and camera locations are appalling when compared to local coverage. I guess having live sport 24 hours a day means we get plenty of practice at filming it and producing a decent package.

    Yes. We have production teams who understand rugby coverage and who are very skilled at what they do. I think it was last year that the All Blacks played in Argentina and the game was covered by a crew that clearly had no idea. It was quite a lesson in how much we rely on excellent replay coverage, for example.

    Hmmm.

    rayan lee is banned and I will clearly have to keep an eye out for similar live spammers.
