    I love streaming... and reckon the chart should treat a stream with the same merit as a sale, for if charts are a measure of behavior then surely behavior (actual popularity) should be the determiner not the $$ value back to the rights holder or more precisely the mechanical rights holder

    free the chart!

  • Polity: Custard,

    The next fifteen months are going to be fascinating

    more like deeply depressing, given the toll the policies or lack of action is having on far too many

    politics is a really stupid game sometimes/often

    I firmly believe you could write about paint drying and make it heartfelt and funny David, thank you!

  • Hard News: Friday Music: New Classical,

    So great to finally get a glimpse into what Shayne’s been working on

    Not overly fussed on the leisure remix, Montell2099’s original works are way more interesting

    For those looking for a refreshingly interesting homage to the purple one’s legacy might I suggest Michael Morley’s Gate…

    Must watch the jungle dodo’s had the pleasure of being in London as it kicked in, I was a white dude in a flying nun sweatshirt and docs sweating in the clubs (that would let me in) looking quite out of place and loving every single second of it all – it was the sound of london in a way d'n'b could never be

  • Hard News: Crowded houses, in reply to Sacha,

    When can we vote for the likes of Gen Zero... they'd actually make a positive difference, the endless rearranging of chairs by our two major political parties isn't working

  • Up Front: What Sorry Looks Like,

    I don't think he's sorry for anything except how his behaviour has made him appear to some - i.e. he's sorry he got outed, caught and convicted

    He's so not sorry he will, with his employers approval, use his abuse as a means to promote himself and his employer through a non apology

  • Polity: A short history of half-baked…, in reply to andrew001,

    rather than blaming the previous govt (the default) or passing off the problem due to you know history... this govt could have, you know, given many people a brighter future but they've consistently denied any problem existed, actively campaigned against all of labours and other parties plans to address the housing crisis (CGT, Kiwibuild) and now are only considering options they've borrowed from those other parties

    This govt can wear that blame for they have earnt it

  • Polity: Flaccid balloon, mite-ridden bees,

    I'm interested in what the 54 million was spent on?

    If you want a gotcha surely this is the area on which to focus - especially given how the 26 million spent on the flag referendum caused such outrage from certain quarters, pointing out Smith's failings is a road to frustration on most levels, except perhaps the financial

  • Hard News: Music: In music's own spaces, in reply to Russell Brown,

    I see what the local stores are doing as the most positive thing for the ongoing nature of the day - making it about the stores and putting on a great day

    it was and always should have been Record Store Day not record release day, the exclusives took over much to the dismay of all bar a few profiteers

    well done local stores!
