    Good looking on the S.O.U.L BBoy edit - as the soundcloud page notes it has some infamy as the source of Pete Rock & CL Smooth's 'Go with the flow'. At least one of S.O.U.L's albums (and possibly both) had an Australian pressing BITD - another page in the 'the industry did that?' book for folks like me who find these things really interesting ...

    Surely Temuera Morrison when you think about it. He did play Boba Fett's dad in the second Star Wars movie, Attack of the Clones.

    I think some degree of authorship, rather than only participation as an actor, is being assumed. Otherwise we'd also have to consider Cliff Curtis in Sunshine .

    Rona

    Rona was the daughter of the sea god Tangaroa. She was the Tide Controller. One night she was carrying a bucket with stream water back home to her children, when the path became dark. The Moon slipped behind the clouds making it impossible to see anything. As Rona was walking, she hit her foot against a root that was sticking out of the ground. She was so upset that she couldn't see the root, she made some unkind remarks about the Moon.

    The Moon heard her remarks and put a curse on the Maori people. The Moon grabbed Rona and her water bucket. Many people today see a woman with a bucket in the Moon. It is said that when Rona upsets her bucket, it rains. This Maori story symbolizes the influence of the Moon on the rain and on the waters of the Earth, and especially on the tides.

    In a separate Maori myth, a man named Rona went to the Moon to find his wife. To this day, the two take turns eating each other. This is how the phases of the Moon were explained

    Then there's mooning as in whakapohane.

    The push to (re)raise the drinking age, restrict party pills, ban fireworks and otherwise legislate safety into our lives raises the question: are we becoming too safe for our own good?

    Unassailable lead, you'd think. For a generation at least.
