We went on Thursday night to the preview. Carousel was a standout for me, brilliant direction by Michael Hurst ,the backup band and lighting . I couldn't agree more Jackson.
Blood Orange - Coastal Grooves is my Album of the year. Everything bad about 80's music mashed into a gem of a sound..
A new release from Bradford Cox‘s solo project, Atlas Sound, is on high rotation in our house at the moment.
Bytes - Apologies if this was already mentioned in the previous pages..
Damn shame this is their last tour.
Bummer as they are absolutely at the top of their game. Epic set and the absolute highlight band for me at the BDO..... particularly the majestic finale.
I was also impressed with how clean and tidy the immortals lounge is from early BDO years that I attended. Nice range of beers, wine and food.
Oh, looks like the press release is out:
This year’s SPADA conference kicks off with a hiss and a roar with the key plenary session on The Hobbit – What Really Happened. Chaired by Russell Brown, the panel will include Philippa Boyens (co-writer The Hobbit), SPADA’s CEO Penelope Borland and Executive Member Richard Fletcher.
I hope there's someone a but more "other side" added to the panel, or I might have to go rogue on them ;-)
Open to non delegates. Really?
The sun will be shining....
A class act....
AE members should have been there and made a point to be there.

Here are the EPMU union rules regarding your point of view. I know my union applies a very inclusive process to the membership, to suggest otherwise would be nonsense.
@ Blake - can someone move the NZ oil/gas supplies to another country?
That's the difference why that worked and this was never going to.
Peter - All I was trying to demonstrate is that tans tasman unions co-operating together can be a benefit to NZ workers. Real improvements in wages won't come from fiddling around with the tax system.

oil + gas
The EPMU launched a new short film titled "Black Gold" , showcasing the 30% pay increase achieved by EPMU members in Taranaki covered by the Kan Tan 4 collective agreement.
The agreement was negotiated by the Trans-Tasman Oil & Gas Alliance, which comprises the EPMU, Maritime Union of New Zealand (MUNZ), Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) and the Australian Workers Union (AWU), and which was established to work towards pay parity for all oil and gas workers in New Zealand and Australia.
The agreement was made possible by the level of co-operation between Australian and New Zealand unions.
