And I do like to see a Roland JC120 in its native habitat.
You'll be gutted you missed this Sonic Garage Sale

Arguably the only street in central Chchch!

"I fear that the ministry may be losing its
own sense of proportion here."
So that's why Doctor Who could never have started in the US!

The commentary I looked up gave no mention of video
From the Herald
Security cameras which cover the property were reviewed.
Sergeant Steve Watt, of Queenstown, said yesterday 11 youths from Queenstown's sole secondary school had been identified from the video footage and social media where one of the alleged offenders posted photographs of their activities at the property.
Look upon my Works...

Great images Chris,
they capture two timescales eloquently!
the press gang...
But three times per year per journalist would still be quite a lot of fuck-ups aggregated across dozens of journalists in a big newsroom
...and very doable, now that newspaper publishers move to embrace systems like a 'right first time' story entry method, in which the reporter writes directly into the newshole! (as they say) - aside from the stupid mistakes reporters can, make and need Subs to pick up, so there may well be an upturn for the legal fraternity if the reporters get things really wrong.
which is that it’s actually the number for visits, rather than unique visitors
Core commenters each visiting the site (or refreshing the page?) 20-50 times a day soon mounts up...
Lampoo, Harpoon or just harp on...
Journalism is a subset of publication.
But is Gossip and vitriol a subset of journalism?
and just as a reminder: Whaleoil profile from 2009!
(Internet Warrior! Hah! more like worry!)
Back at the office, a Christchurch reader alerts him to a radio appearance by Lianne Dalziel, in which she addresses rumours, started on Slater's blog, that she was mulling a tilt at the city's mayoralty. She had taken exception to The Press printing her denials, which she considered to be circulating a baseless rumour from a source with no credibility.
"I think it's really important that we realise these people are not subject to the same standards as our mainstream media," she says.
Slater is angry. In no time, he has published a recording of the interview.
"We most demonstrably are media," he says. "It just happens to be new media. And it's immediate: she said that this morning and this afternoon she's going to cop a flogging. That's how immediate this is! Not only that, if she does decide to stand for the mayoralty, I'm going to run a Whale Oil campaign against her. All because she pissed me off. She doesn't get it, so she's going to learn."
How well did that anti-Lianne campaign go, Cameron?
Super nova (callowfragilelistingegotist) ...
a news medium: a medium for the dissemination to the public or a section of the public of news and observations on news
How about: "a medium for the responsible dissemination to the public or a section of the public of news and relevant observations on news"
Whaleoil is all about his (or clients) opinions, isn't he?
More hucksterism than 'just the facts'...

surely, reflections on ponds

I don't have a smartphone camera,
but if I did these Rubberband Macro Lenses look pretty nifty...
wonder if they have a pirate-style alice band / eyepatch headbandanalens?
