  • Legal Beagle: David Garrett wins,

    It has to be deeper than that, or young people wouldn't be voting for them as well

    That would be the offspring I mentioned, influenced by their clueless parents.
    Humans are hugely suggestible and children even more so.
    We have to** learn/be taught** a massive amount of what we need to "survive". And when the definition of survival passed on is fucked, people become fucked.

    And then there was Helen & Co who coped a lot of flake, for no justifiable reason, just because people have the capacity to be capricious little shits.

  • Legal Beagle: David Garrett wins,

    Also exacerbated by the "daddy knows best" tendencies of the current bunch voted for by our fellow citizens and approved in opinion polls. It seems we like being told what to do.

    I despair when I know that most of those people were born in that post war daze dubbed the baby boom. And were supposed to be the generation that would make a break with the past.
    The conditioning was to strong and daddy was always at work, or sleeping "work " off.
    So most of them took the first opportunity to stuff their bank accounts, cry poverty, and turn their back on any thing resembling a principle so they could fret and dote over their offspring.
    Which brings us to the present.

    Though it depends on one's chosen lifestyle, but I doubt Ms Allen has cheap tastes, somehow.

    That means she is in danger of becoming another irrelevant celebrity living on past glories indulging in crass displays of wealth beyond her means.
    Or she could live within the means afforded by her income, which would be a whole lot better that 80% of the global population.

  • Speaker: The Architecture of Elsewhere,

    Tried getting to one in your lunch hour from your CBD job in the 09?

    You must be talking about yourself, I don't work in the CBD.
    And lunch at a beach? You mean on a grassed area near the sea don't you? Which is easy to do.
    Eating on a sandy beach is no fun.

    INXS were hugely popular and commercial in their day, and kept begging to be allowed to play the BDO without success.

    And I bet they still thought they were an indie band just gigging around Sydney, trying to get on. Even tho' they had been stadium rockers for a few years by the time BDO got going and was looking for street cred, not that other thing which INXS had.
    I got a shock when I saw Kirk Pengelly on Masterchef Celebrity.

  • Speaker: The Architecture of Elsewhere,

    south bank of the river which courses through Brisbane and it works.

    Umm.. if I remember correctly the artificial beach is completely self contained. Cause you wouldn't want to be swimming in the Brisbane river, the colour never gets anywhere near blue or green or clear.
    A turgid brown is the best you'll get, and sharks do swim up it.

  • Speaker: The Architecture of Elsewhere,

    If it's one thing NZ is not short of it's beaches.
    And in winter they can be forlorn places for old men with model yachts.

    So Lily Allen overrated, I should have guessed. Still her bank account must be looking healthy. One hit can set a person up for life I believe.

    Al Green in The Civic on Thursday.

    Bugger Im effing broke.
