    seeing as how all them Led Zepp albums have been re-issued and stuff, this is how they should really be played…

  • Hard News: Radio New Zealand: changing…,

    no time to think about this, busy reeling from the loss of Radio Sport's FM frequency. although I spose AM will lend a little nostalgic static to Wads's cricket commentary.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: F**kYouTube,

    I'm not fussed by youtube as long as I can still watch all them ye olde clips - it's a fantastic tool for diggers.

    for instance, just grabbed myself a stonking stash of 2nd hand 7s at Southbound and got to check them out via the interwebs. rather excited to get them home.

    here's Rupert's People... 60s mod styles

    I imagine though that if the way to view some stuff is blocked another way will be found. isn't that how the net works?

  • Field Theory: It has started,

    yeah, bollocks to all that, if that's the standard for penalties at this cup then there's going to be a truckload of them.
    also bollocks was the free kick for obstructing the keeper before Croatia's 'equalizer.' also also bollocks was the tackle from behind in the build up Oscar's goal.
    that ref should be toast.

    not a great start then. and jesus, but Brazil were a pale shadow of what was expected. no midfield control, headless chooks at the back and show ponies up front. they will improve, but it's going to have to be major major if they're going to move past the second round where (most likely) Spain or the Netherlands will be waiting. Croatia didn't have a lot happening up front aside from hard running and they caused big problems.
    Luckily for Brazil, the Croatian keeper wasn't much chop.
    so, roll on tomorrow, and go Mexico next Wednesday - for some reason I now have the 'ump against Brazil. also, go Uruguay, I got them in the office pool.

    hey Russell, I get what you're saying about the Roys, but I reckon their Ain't Mutatin' remains one of the - not as many as there should be - FN recordings that still stands up - and the vocals are more, ahem, tuneful...

    on another kick, very happy to finally get a copy of Buffy Sainte Marie's batshit Illuminations album, this is one of the more straight forward offerings,

    http://www.discogs.com/Buffy-Sainte-Marie-Illuminations/release/2228379

    it makes a nice companion piece to Julie (Let's all Go to the Zoo) Felix's Lightning album

    otherwise, still pissed at the referreeing this morning. Croatia wuz robbed.
