And if you think it's not on someone can't see music at a festival without this idiocy and worse, let's think about those times it happens in everyday situations - at home, at the pub, at work. It isn't 'just a laugh.' Someone in the equation is undermined and unsafe. 'Oh, but that guy wouldn't do anything worse.' It's exactly that sort of guy that can overstep what you consider okay if they aren't challenged. So lets step up and call this out when we see it. If you feel afraid of doing so remember you feel nothing near as afraid as the victim of the abuse. Because that's what it is: abuse.
I hope you all were with friends when you heard the news. I'm damn glad I was.
A The Church short ‘The Quest’ with a wandering knight 2 or 3 of their songs played before it if memory serves.
Very much appreciated the K Rd Metro article Russell.

Yes. Reflector jacketed guys standing next to tripod video camera setups for hours on end are a regular sight, at least on the routes I mostly bus on, Mt Eden, New North Rds and Symonds St.

space for a Jon Stewart Daily Show take on things.
Ahem Brown Eye.
We all remembered Campbell Live was there.
And it was there when people needed a voice, Christchurch as mentioned, Cave Creek, poverty etc. My impression of this advocacy is it stayed on the issue and the programme didn't make it all about itself - quite a temptation in the current media environment.
And Campbell himself. I suppose some might find him overly ebullient but overall I feel enthusiasm is infectious and I didn't false.
I want to see news about how happy we all are
? Perhaps there are reason for unhappiness Mike? And happy isn't the word I'd reach for to describe his mood in his editorials.
Well done all. I look forward to watching when I'm left to my own devices.
I’ve had nothing but support from TVNZ ever since the 2 minute coffee meeting with Head of Content Jeff Latch, which basically went “Jeff, have a look at this video from my website contributors” – “It’s great – let me know what we can do to help.”
Very impressed by this.
