My son proudly harassed National’s Woodhouse at Uni over his anti-gay marriage stance
Earlier this afternoon I was waiting to cross the Cumberland / Albany intersection. Nat list MP Michael Woodhouse, Nat Dn South candidate Hamish Walker and about 10 Young Nats were there, too.
A van goes by and the driver shouted "F--k you, a--eholes !" at them; to their credit, they had the good grace to politely cheer back.
Just a few corrections I've been informed of by Peter's sister, Mary:
"A few corrections, he never had music lessons. We had a piano but he didn't learn it. His limp was from having one leg shorter than the other, it caused him pain from his teens on. When he finally gave in and wore orthotics for it things improved, he got clean and ha music gave him a reason to look after himself again."
"he was alone when he died. Bloody tragic but I'm glad the focus is on the good memories as it should be."
Sorry for getting these facts wrong, hopefully this will clarify things.
rock on everyone.
Ah, so it will be ok if I wear either my bright red Stooges t-shirt or my bright red Throwing Muses t-shirt tomorrow... ; )
Which party believes in doing what’s right for New Zealand?
Leading questions like this are always weird, as if some parties actually believe what they're doing is wrong.
I mean, you can argue that some parties' policies are better or worse, but the parties themselves always genuinely believe what they're doing is for the greater good, as opposed to deliberately doing wrong.
I’m guessing the other one, for records and music, is the Don MacGlashan College…?;- )
Boom, boom ! No, the far more prosaic Kaikorai Primary, alas.
It really has been a most craaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzyyyyyyyyyy election campaign.
I'll vote mid-morning, then go to a couple of nearby school fairs. The John MacGlashan College one is usually pretty good for scoring a couple of decent books cheap, so here's hoping.
Nothing specific planned for the afternoon, then just plan to watch TV3. I cannot abide Seven Sharp and shudder to think how unctuous Mike Hosking will be all evening, especially if it looks like National will win on the night.
Admittedly TV3 looks like it'll have Paul Henry, but at least it'll only be as a occasional commentator and not as the main presenter. Then it really would be a pox on both their houses.
Other than that, all I can say is "vote early and vote often", etc.
I'm listening to WFMU in New Jersey and commented on the playlist. I noted that another comment was from an "X Key" so I asked if it was after "X Key Score." He said no, but was aware of "The Moment Of Truth" event and the impact / fall-out from Greenwald and Snowden's revelations. The internets really does make the world a smaller place !
Peter Gutteridge Memorial Service to be at Forsyth Barr Stadium 'J' entrance 11-2 Tuesday. Followed by a private burial.
This info has just been posted on Peter's F/b page by Stu Kawowski.
A memorial and condolences book for Peter has been set up in the foyer of Dunedin Public Library, I've just heard.
Chris Heazlewood is flying back with Peter's body tomorrow, so presumably there'll be a service at the weekend or early next week.
Grant McDougall is working on a tribute, which I’ll post as soon as he’s done.
Written about half of it, will have it to you by 6pm.
