    Hammer, meet nail.

    The question for us, is when/if we see something similar here. Although I don't believe our democracy is any where near as broken as it is in the US, we're certainly heading down a similar path with increasing numbers becoming disconnected and participation rates falling.

    An ill-fitting baseball cap would appear to be part of the uniform.

    The 'feel' of disc brakes is WAY superior, especially a quality set of hydraulics. Weight difference is truly negligible, again quality is the key. And changing pads is a doddle, so not sure what the 'serviceability' issue might be.

  • Hard News: Bowie, in reply to Russell Brown,

    I have to say i was surprised at how emotional I felt - more like losing a personal friend than the passing of an admired artist. And yes I lost it when Let's Dance flooded the room last night.

  • Hard News: Bowie,

    Heard the news on my way to Jamie xx last night, and it coloured my evening somewhat. I came across this video recently, recorded live at the BBC in 1972 but not broadcast for another 10 years. Bloody fantastic.

    Maybe we could get David Byrne to help out with some cool designs, like he has for New York

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Up the Charts,

    That Frank Lloyd Wright cover has been my earworm this week. Now I have pictures to go with the sound, I fear it will never leave me. And I can't quite fathom why, but it could only ever have been from Simon and Garfunkel.

  • Hard News: We can make things better here, in reply to BenWilson,

    Na the journey to the airport from Pt Chev via Maioro is a nightmare at any time through the day. A 2 minute backtrack to the St Lukes interchange could easily save 20 minutes.

    I'm already grateful for not having to consult the tide chart before my commute from Pt Chev to Hendo - salt water and bike chains don't go together very well.
    But i can't wait to cruise along that lovely new smooth section of tarmac after tomorrow's opening.

  • Capture: Peak Pohutukawa, in reply to Sacha,

    Further up the estuary, near the pie factory. Damn nice chili beef and cheese pie too.
