  • Hard News: Helen,

    Admiring Helen from afar, and agreeing with what Russell and others have written, her unwillingness to give all up in despair in the face of so much inhuman obstruction for low paid workers astounded me. I think only one interview (Kim Hill I think) where she spoke about herself rather than emphasising the issues and people until the diagnosis and treatments became her next chapter. Please let's keep the spirit of her advocacy and humanity alive.

  • Legal Beagle: The Spinoff: Offensive and…,

    Did Davis' broadcast include 'the particular examples' proving his statements on Radio Sport? Dis he provide 'a range of other material' to support his statements? This example shows the innate abstruseness Press Council process.

  • Hard News: Obscuring the News,

    Non-journalism non-media non-RNZ normally non-interested in public-reporting acquaintances have reported the same for a while. It’s been my pleasure to point them to RNZ News. Unprompted (but supported) by me older family (70-95) have been relying on Al Jazeera for international news for 5+ years. Were it not for Swideswipe or Fourlegsgood I probably wouldn’t visit their respective hosts [much*]. * Necessity sometimes requires...

  • Hard News: Friday Music: The Gaffer Departs,

    Just a little mention of the BBC Proms David Bowie Tribute 7:00pm this evening. I've checked and they RNZ do not have web hosting rights so it's listen then or miss this thang (although there a couple of youtubers at the linked site). Should you miss it RNZ hardly lacks for Bowie related material tho'.

    Hat-tip Ana Samways (I swear, most days the only reason I hit the NZH site) for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nDIcbPL43g. I was reliably advised Dee Snider is grand cool: Proof.

  • Up Front: Dear Dudebros,

    Always appreciate your blogs Emma. I'm having conversational flashbacks on this albeit none with the éclat of 'feckless shitgibbons' - my WOTY sorted.

    I'm slightly nervous for The Get Down with Luhrmann involved but it probably wouldn't have been greenlit without him. For those

    mildly obsessed with this era

    I'll link again to Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree.

    And Yay! for new Lil Chief releases. Love me some Tokey Tones.
