I want to also acknowledge Nora Legs prolific contributions there.
Thanks for the nudge Steven.
Yes, Nora has been a sustaining force, and her contributions are always thematically relevant and excellent quality. Much aroha Nora.
And of course Jonathan G, who has helped maintain the space from the get go. Shot, bro. Wouldn't be doing this without your encouragement and support.
Looking back, my first post here was now 5 years ago, during the Carly binding referendum. Still can’t work out how that didn’t win WOTY in 2009. I mean, who even is Michael LHaws?
At times this community has sustained me, at others driven me to distraction, but it remains unique among online communities, IMhO, in that the engagement is 99% of the time delivered with good intent, and mutual respect. This is no mistake, and takes a lot of effort by the whole community. Nice work. Take the day off.
Ahem. Love your work Russell, and thanks for letting us share in the good times.
You can dance, if you want to.
God damn you, Russell.
This one’s for you too Danielle. :-)
Good morning all.
Righto, after much deliberation, over the length of a coffee this morning, here are my top ten.
Kebabette – windblown
Lara – upside down Sam.
Gareth – Takeaway lunch.
Lilth – amazing waves.
David Hood – shooting through the sprinkler.
Bruce Buckman – Gannet at Muriwai.
Shaun Scott – A merry go around?
Ross McA – Fire Away.
Reg Feuz – Late night Courtenay Place. (With a number of creditable late entries – nice work Reg).
Then I put the list in this randomiser thingy, and the winner is…
Shaun Scott from Dunedin!
Shaun, could you hit reply in the post and send me your delivery details. Cheers.
Thanks everyone for your entries, and wishing you all a wonderful, and cake-filled, Christmas.
Wow, indeed it is. And I was like...
The Ghost of Business Past has an intense race against a wagon.
Thanks for posting this Troy. Told you it would fit in nicely. :-)
And Gareth, I might have to put a warning in the post now. “Bunnies may have been harmed in the making of…" etc. Yikes.
I should check my 'Isis Knot Privilege', but I'm so excited everyone else gets to read this wonderful book.
Emma, if there is anything we could do to help you in your coming months of trials and tribulations, I do hope you would ask.
perhaps the ability to reach through the internet and slap people with fish or something similar
Didn't we trademark the 'Emma Slap™ ' some time ago? :-)
Nick Cave tickets
I managed to squeeze myself in to the Sunday show.
I'm still enjoying the latest album, and looking forward to seeing this live.
