  • Hard News: Sunday People,

    Outside the gate, I ran into Jed Town, he of Fetus Productions and The Features, who was loading into his car a swag of very weathered band gear he’d just bought as a lot for $50. He was very pleased that the lot included a set of original 1980s Simmons drum pads – which went for about $5000 back in the day.

    That story made the ex-hoarder in me’s day. I’m really happy for that Jed.

    I’d be fairly amused by a retrospective “my election campaign with Kim Dotcom” series. Any takers?

    Netflix original, Docu - series.

  • Access: The Blue Inhaler,

    I keep a Ventolin inhaler in the first aid kit. The only time I ever came close to need using it on myself is when I reacted to some epoxy reason I was working with. But I have used a Ventoline inhaler to help resuscitate somebody from the music industry, who had stoped breathing.

    PS: I think about these things becouse I do offshore sailing.

  • Hard News: Cheers,

    Apart from your excellent writing skills, Russell, It's your style of web group moderation that makes this thing tick so smoothly. These are the sorts of qualities that I'd like to adopt:-)

    The red and white ensigns will remain the same, even if the “Flag” is changed.

    I still can’t see the point of changing the references to the monarchy/colonial past when we still have to have approval of the Queen’s representative to make Law – once the whole system changes then it makes sense to change the identifying symbol to reflect this – anything earlier is misleading rebranding – bit like Nurofen© really...

  • Up Front: Reading Murder Books,

    Twice, as a child, I can remember being told off by teachers for reading something that wasn’t good enough for me. The first time, it was reading The Hardy Boys when I was nine. The second time, it was reading Agatha Christie when I was thirteen.

    A more enlightened teacher would have explained that Agatha Christie, is a story teller, that literally couldn't actually write. She had dysgraphia, which meant somebody else had to drive the tractor.

    Braving weather

    That’s a fantastic Photograph!

    I think I can see a lighthouse out on the horizon, beyond the marker post, at the end of that headland. And there's something melancholic about the child out there alone. Mabe the parents are lost?
