Yes there was a tour with Butler . North Island or South Island?
That story makes it it sound all very clean. But it would be great for the history books to get some accounts of the night that the Boulevard Cafe in P.N. was busted . . . for alcohol. Can you believe it . . . . adults having a small number of drinks in a night club at 11 p.m?
Yes , kiddies , once upon a time such behaviour was illegal.
The ditched "junk " under the tables was a veritable treasure trove :-)
In fact you can do a reasonable job with just a video camera :-
That was recorded at a Divine Light concert in the St James Theatre in Wellington , around 1976 from memory. Recording live was a big undertaking back then. Nowadays you can do the job with an i-Book on the lawn by the cowshed :-
You think heroin addiction is bad?
Nothing worse than watching a former happy heroin user consigned to living out the rest of his days queuing for methadone.
"all great music events are vibrant at the time"
Yep, and every minute, somewhere , some band is the best in the world.
Did anyone ever go to a concert by this band? Perhaps it is too long ago.
Audience accounts might make for some very funny reading.
The inside story is unique.
All of the core players are still with us ; it might be time to get out the type writer
I think one of the big problems with the bailout was that it didn’t come with consequences for those who had caused the problem in the first place
Exactly, but the consequences for all those who were blameless are far from being inconsequential , and it's far from over.
Saving the financial system was the goal –
I don't agree , but I guess we'll just have to wait and see if it has been saved by QE etc. to infinity.
If it doesn't all crash and burn , and the elite are all safe in their bolt-holes , while the 99% are left with sweet fanny adams , then we'll call that a success, right?
Shame about the collateral damage.
I think that you may be on to it.
Jong Ki is a 1%er ; always was.
Your duty is to survive.
It does and it’s amongst us every day in every way.
Welcome to the Hunger Games.
Yeh that’s right ; we are all in the game now.
” The widening chasm between rich and poor is traceable to the policies that were adopted in 2008. That’s why things are so fu**ed up : it’s because of the “surge in paper wealth, fueled by the trillions of dollars pumped into the financial system by central banks via zero interest rate and “quantitative easing” policies.”
In other words, it’s all deliberate. Robbing the poor and giving to the rich is all part of the plan.
That strikes me as an important point, and one that’s worth mulling over for awhile; that crushing the middle class isn’t an accident. It’s what they want. It’s the policy.”
