Prized highly enough to preserve it in this case? Nope, not going to the barricades for this one.
what we have in this case is advertisers choosing to not have their products, their business, and their reputations associated with rape apologists.
personally i see that as "the free market in operation", and not as "interference with editorial integrity".
oh, and for the record. am on record thinking that radio nz did exactly the right thing.
if jt and willie wanted to make a positive contribution to this debate, they should have just STFU and let smart people do it.
free speak != saying any damn stupid thing that comes out of your half-baked mind. it means not getting jailed for speaking truth to power.
I could revise downwards once somebody explains to me what it was even supposed to mean.
traditionally it means 'unhappy middle aged woman, especially with drinking problem".
i've always associated it with the concomitant down-turned mouth.
make of that what you will.
never said i was a fan.
was just a great new place to get turned down by girls.
1986: dire straits at western springs. caught the bus up from the mount with a mate from school.
i remember security looking suspiciously at my carry-all, and how disappointed they were to see it filled with a packed lunch.
the first low-down and dirty gig must have been the Fits at a non-defunct upstairs bar on taranaki st, 1991 - unless you could seeing forgettable bands at the mount soundshell... (or pseudo-echo in 1987 (?) at the QE2 centre in tauranga).
There are literally hundreds of these covers on YouTube. Amazing
yep. this is obviously what sweetman missed.
might have come across stronger at the gig. the video footage was... not flattering.
more awesomer then.
the contrast to the girl of then is marked. then she was kind of belting out something a bit like wigmore. now she's definitely singing her own voice.
might send her an tweet asking her not to rap any more tho.
Sweetman's an idiot
does sweetman also do RNZ? pretty sure i heard him on summer noelle talking about NZL songs that were "shanties". if it's the same guy, he spoke about 'Not Given Lightly' being a classic.
but i'm pretty sure Not Given Lightly is a waltz.
also, Lorde's great. not my cuppa, but the two of them are writing some good songs. (i'm assuming the Lorde is still the wee girl and the friend who featured on RNZ a few years back?)
And it's being used on our dollar as taxpayers.
could we take a second to note that the reported spend is less than the total amount handed out to exporters because fonterra had a botulism false positive?
also, i've done a few of these. the one time the associated role was not offered it was against the advice of the testing company. that told me that the interview and references were more important.
