    Bugger all Aborigines though, I just never saw them, which always freaked me out a little.

    You didn't make it to Redfern then?

    But really the Aborigines millenia-old lifestyle perfected to live in the harsh Australian weather just doesn't work in a city.
    And no effort was ever made to assimilate them in any way, shape or form. And if ever there is a constant reminder of the ugly face of colonialism, the treatment of Gondwana's indigenous people is it.
    Decimated is the only word for it.
    Anyway I think they don't feel welcome in places which were once their domain. Its changing but slowly now.

  • Random Play: It's Kiwi music, but not as…,

    Ian Morris dies in Napier

    Wow I liked him the best of Th'Dudes. Sad
    He was the only one who stood with me in an unprovoked attack while on tour, some years ago.

    A question
    Anyone ever hear a Nun song "What the Fuck's He Going on About"
    I think by The Taranakis.
    A Mr Knox played it to me, again, years ago.

    Perhaps we could have more than the usual parade of suspects representing the country on television, in public roles, and all those places where real New Zealanders are so conspicuously absent.

    Its not the faces that need an update. Its the attitudes, deeply held beliefs and nasty tribalism.
    But the Rugby World Cup is next year , so expect exhortations to exalt those attitudes, deeply held beliefs and tribalism.

  • Up Front: Staying Civil,

    compagn(a|o)

    If it has an "a" on the end of it the word is feminine.
    Correct me if I'm wrong Giovanni.
    Languages with genders.

  • Hard News: Morning in Auckland,

    or the hapless middle classes of the North Shore would find themselves welcoming their new southern overlords.

    As long as they can come up with a coherent and reasonable building code for the whole of AK. That actually reflects the way people live nowdays, they can come from Mordor, or the fucking Shire. For all I care.

  • Hard News: Hobbit Wars,

    The Gloss deal was legendarily insane. I think it called for everyone to pretty much be paid all over again if it was re-screened, and for Craig Parker to be plated in gold.

    Ahh the good old days, is it still legal to gold plate gays?
    Lets hope that doesnt get changed.

  • Hard News: The GST Punt,

    But the units who did get their gardens set up were very happy with them.
