  • Jolisa,

    A collective noun of pedants. I think we can do better, actually.

    Finding out what a petard actually is was a great moment

    Yup, found out last week courtesy of Hamlet... a fine moment in vocab expansion.

    No, it was always going to happen. Godwin's 4th corollary: Any thread that carries on for long enough will become pendulous.

    Start posting music clips and we'll see

  • andin,

    Do we get to tar and feather anyone?
    Not literally of course.

    Well not till law and order has completely broken down.
    I can help with that!

    I generally have terrible taste in music, and this clip isn't the best quality either, but the tune's been stuck in my head for a good couple of weeks since hearing it on the radio one night...

  • Jackie Clark,

    Sam, no-one has terrible taste in music. We all just have our own taste and no-one can tell us what we can and can't like. I say this as someone who, if I could, would be married to Dave Dobbyn, Elton John and Foreigner simultaneously. In order to illustrate my own taste in music, might I present you with one of my very favourite songs. Ever.

  • Danielle,

    I say that Shocking Blue's original has better clothes. Better hair. And a better arrangement.

    Also, dig the quick-cutting. So veddy veddy 60s.

  • Jackie Clark,

    that is a very groovy version, Danielle - it's on the ipod at my gym. But, and I know you won't take it personally, whenever it comes on, I get all excited, and then I realise that it's not Bananarama.

  • dyan campbell,

    I got the same feeling during my brief time in Canada - Toronto and Victoria. You almost wanted to go ask where they hid the indigenous people away.

    What do you think we look like?

    You wouldn't recognise a First Nations person. I'm as much Cree as Tiger Woods is black, and I am almost invariably seen as white by NZers.

    My husband also looks white, until you see a portrait of his great-grandfather, who looks exactly like a 90 year old tattooed version of Paul.

    Maybe they were all at a casting call for First Nations actors at the Twilight sequel, New Moon.
