    a Nauru escape!

    It is diesel that will cause the real productivity crunch to occur, long before phosphorus is the major problem.

    Hmmmm... combining those two can have explosive results, can't it...?

    Alcohol is the solution:

    is ethylene related to ethyl alcohol ?
    wooden, er, wouldn't that make it a 'vinyl solution'?

    ...or is it a Godwin that blows nobody any good?

    Prepare to meta your maker…
    …and in breaking ‘Fake News’ – The Chch Art Gallery’s outreach programme has had an unexpected side-effect, as the art goes out into the community, so does the community start to intrude on the art!!

    Apologies to Petrus van der Velden, Evelyn Page and Sir Antony Gormley..

    compileobacter…
    I note that the NY Times Bestseller book Love is a Mixtape (2007) by Rolling Stone staff writer Rob Sheffield includes a selection of Flying Nun acts including The Bats, Chills, Verlaines, Dead C and OMC from NZ as well!
    I think there is even a spotify playlist based on them - but i can't be sure 'cos I've never signed up!

    It's the 'Pill-Pressbyterians' vs 'The Meth-ODists'...

  • Speaker: Are we seeing the end of MSM,…,

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/86782357/editors-tell-the-commerce-commission-declining-media-merger-is-wrong
    These editors make much of "the communities we serve" yet I've noticed Fairfax's coverage of major events in Chchch has dropped away unless they sponsor it or it is a Fairfax Media Events event - it's a 'community of interest' they serve not actually all the people that make up a community...
    They enable Facebook and Google by publishing their own material on line to be reaggregated before the print edition comes out - for no good reason in many cases (ie: not time crucial information).
    They have lost their way!

  • Hard News: From Zero: Drugs and popular culture,

    Boo! Tea! call...
    The Drugs and Popular Culture episode seems to miss out Posters and Comics - no dayglo leaf poster boutiques, no Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Robert Crumb or Harold Hedd (which all made their way to NZ thru Student or Underground mags and shops - what about Barry Linton's Auckland life comic glimpses in various places and Burton Silver's dope munching hedgehogs in The Listener! - Heck even Spiderman and Green Arrow dropped the Comics Code accreditation badge to present drug stories, all available here...
    I know DeQuincey is alluded to but was Burroughs or Emmett Grogan or even Kerouac ... all big sellers here in certain circles.
    Not music but comedy! - Cheech and Chong had a big NZ following - I know I went to their Chchch show - I can't remember a thing from it! - that was down to the alcohol though...
