  • Hard News: Show some decency, in reply to BenWilson,

    watching the first leaders debate and Mr Key kept talking about their "plan", yet after nearly six years of them ruling (I don't think they govern) I have no idea what their plan is, nor is there any evidence of it

    When I see policy released I check the blogs I trust to see their, (usually more educated), view of it - No right turn is usually my first stop. I will then look at the documents themselves. Quick easy and virtually free means to be slightly informed

  • Hard News: Show some decency, in reply to BenWilson,

    totally agree with you Ben

    I've never had so much information about the actual policy of major parties before

    and possibly its never been easier to find parties polices - generally hidden somewhere on the parties website

    The debates and election seem to be treated like a badly run sports match...

    I think people need to say national have done a terrible job of managing the economy - lets not beat about the bush or rely on a natural disaster to make the books look better than they would

    Ironically, it's a great groove. But I won't even be linking to it.

    let down by such pathetic lyrics - they're way better than this, could have been a great song but alas not so

    Must admit I find it funny many involved in Dirty Politics directly have taken such a dim view (understatement) of the song, do these people not have mirrors?

  • Speaker: If political parties were beer ..., in reply to Annon_sorry,

    I appreciate woman as much as men love a good beer

    While I actually really like the post, I should have pointed that out perhaps... and totally get the humour and the Grant nailed my choice of beer and party, its very male centric in its beerishness, imo

  • Speaker: If political parties were beer ...,

    no wine options, we're good at wine allegedly
    no female option either

    so basically if you don't like beer or are not a MAN you're stuffed

    HA - I have that reaction to a lot of acts these days.. must be this younger generation and their lack of adhering to genre specific music naming conventions as assumed and taken for granted by older people

    I thought I liked Caribou most when he's Daphni and these latest tracks are ruining that preconception... and I still have a problem with his Manitoba guise purely cause of the name... bloody Canadians *shakes rush by the collar*

    To make it even more confusing the albums coming out on Drag City, further ruing my they do interesting indie stuff buzz

    to quote the goons... It's all rather confusing really

  • Hard News: Friday Music: A Strange Road,

    banning of Darren Watson's song just seems petty and silly... what next books?

    I've taken to following Mr Busnach cause of your incessant posting of his goods *shakes fist*... the Geraldine Superstar Cabaret remix of Lawrence Welk's Chicken Polka is pure class (well if polka, chickens and silliness is classy) - songs like this make me wish I still did radio (cue collective sigh of relief by hundreds)

    I'm picking Caribou for one of the best albums of the year, dudes a wicked producer

  • Hard News: Never mind the quality ...,

    if they are after comments they should get Shelley Bridgeman to write some politically charged columns - something like the best shoes to wear to a voting booth and why do we wear shoes anyway
