  • Hard News: Friday Music: Sweet Inspiration,

    Can think of a number edits/remixes of kiwi classics danced up - won't share them as to be polite they are abominations... that Yandall Sisters one is pretty ace

  • Hard News: Stop acting like the law is…,

    it seems to me outside of the law there has been massive incremental change... the poll reflects that - drugs are bad, m'kay... but pot not so bad, m'kay

    where there has been no change is from our politicians, if anything since Nandor left office and the whole synthetic cannabis disaster things have crept backwards

    I for one am more than ready for some actual change, in law and not just around medicinal purposes - we don't need a large influx of new patients looking to game the system and sympathetic doctors put into compromising positions

  • Hard News: Stop acting like the law is…,

    The interesting thing about the poll is that it was commissioned by the Drug Foundation from Curia Research

    I read that as being quite clever - how better to get the govt looking at drug policy or at least the results of a poll like this than using their preferred means of knowing stuff

    I'm quite heartened by the poll and hope/expect National do their trademark about turn when they realise its good for them to do so... cause if anyone hoping for change can see Labour's stance of the past week only has one face palming and realising they aren't going to be anything but embarrassing over this issue for the time being

  • Polity: Hidden Costs,

    I think depression stalks us all, especially given we only celebrate our winners and achievers - of which few of us can hope or aspire to be

    Anyone that follows their heart or passion will at some point be confronted by their own self...

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Reduction…,

    Quietly excited about King Loser and Sleepers Union at the Others Way - some older types to compliment the creative array of younger ones

    This just released video by Sleepers Union is lit or a banger as the kids would say - me I just think its awesomely big

    I think Lil Chief Records is one of the great record labels from NZ, go them!

  • Speaker: The Uncomfortable Silence,

    Ask me how he lived though.

    The question no one asks regardless of cause of death - my mum died of cancer... people would ask when she was dying if she smoked... she did... the look of sympathy would fade to be replaced by a look that was devoid of, um, being polite... empathy

    Sorry your brother is no longer and thank you for your moving words

  • Speaker: Sprawled out, in reply to Sacha,

    Otherwise we have low-value tourism and primary production jobs to offer our children.

    the most depressing part of current and at least near future NZ and both under threat from climate change and farming practices

  • Southerly: Happy to Help (If I Can),

    No one mentioned the history of the unification of Timaru when I lived there... I guess some things are just too painful to teach

    I've not danced since I left the place

    fantastic story thank you David

  • Hard News: Music: The Passing of Vega,

    If not for Suicide I'd never have got into Springsteen - something I doubt anyone has ever said

    Essential and much loved band in my world... everything about them is so just freaking cool

  • Hard News: Obama's Mana,

    could it be that lefties aren't all that pro clinton because she like Obama (democrats) are not really of the left?
