  • Field Theory: An odd morning,

    Oh, the Barcelona followers who talked down their pespects from players out will be stoked. Game time was too close to work start but otherwise I'd've been there enjoying the enthusiasm.

    What with how they said above, I'd thought it was to be Man. U. and so commiserations Neil...

  • Cracker: The Happy Hikoi,

    If they were only used for ceremonial pirposes? Maybe yes. But I think an iwi's relationship to a taiaha may be different then a tribe's relationship to an AK47 so they aren't interchangable.

  • Cracker: The Happy Hikoi,

    Oh, and it seemes more than 7000 but it was harder than usual to tell as, with Aotea Square under repair, it ended at the intersection in front of the Town Hall with the crowd spead out and down the streets...

  • Cracker: The Happy Hikoi,

    See ing the Iwi merge together at the Downtown insterection sorta summed up the feeling of that final sretch up Queen Street.

    Outside the sushi shop where the geisha dressed saleswoman had her friends take photos of her hugging a couple of Hikoi marchers. Intimidated? I don't think so.

    I can't for the life of me think why they chose to highlight dead early-morning streets sparsely populated with caricatured butchers and greengrocers, rather than the city in full bloom of activity and life as it can be at its best.

    Because the audience they're marketting to rises too late to see the city otherwise?

    If not for international or domestic visitors then for Aucklanders themselves?

    It would be an interesting time for Aucklanders to be told they've something special, which raises the question:

    Should it become 'The Subter Super City'?

  • Speaker: Grand Theft Auckland,

    Oh, there was a good turn out at the Hikoi today.

  • Speaker: Grand Theft Auckland,

    My understanding is that is what the regional council was intended to do but was netuereded because the government of the day as they were afraid it would make Auckland something like a super-city...

  • Hard News: A little liberal line in the sand,

    Cheers Russell - that brought a smile. As you say, the French version had more - well - style. And of Lily Allen, who was it that said

    I love the fact that all the little girls know the words to her sassy, funny songs. It wasn't remotely heavy, but it was highly enjoyable. Plus, she has good banter and she's cute.

    Oh, that's right: You.
