  • 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.

  • Speaker: Good Times on High Street,

    That combination of jazz/dance was just right for those nights. Surf the jazz at Celebre and hit the dancefloor for a bit if the energy flagged. Nothing like finding something so groovy in the early hours.

    I went maybe 10 times, a real treat I had the dosh and the nerve...

    Gone but not forgotten.

    Thanks Simon et al.

  • Up Front: I Have Been and Always Shall…,

    I thought the shit-to-quality ratio was unacceptably high, myself

    I think all of us could rate all the films and series on that scale. For me TNG's reliance on the holodeck for so many stories tops the list. But I'ver ead of others who love those fictions within fictions.

    Voyager did a bit of that too but I thought were better linking it to the series premise or threats to the ship...

  • Hard News: That Buzzing Sound,

    I wonder what they were?

    The link to the Morning Report interview with the former staffer doesn't appear to be up yet but she said her contract wasn't renewed, she had to get over and move on from that and that TV3 approached her.
