    No more scarily-muted decor, no more perspex PCs and credit-card video phones! No more tiny electric cars that never do what you tell them. No more mysterious vans! No more Ron-the-interfering-neighbour with his hedge clippers. No more interchangeable photos of kids with dogs. No more manically-smiling Tandi Wright. No more sweetly brave Miriama McDowell! No more Tania Nolan with the scary hair, no more Charles Mesure with the sexy running....

    Bereft!

    Whilst I liked a lot of "This Is Not My Life," I felt the show really had no idea where it was going. I had hoped a second series might deliver the goods, so to speak (the premise was decent but the series was several episodes too long; it should have been six tight episodes rather than a meandering thirteen).

  • Islander,

    Aue!
    Rain will prevent any insights
    but the summer solstice should be
    danced to, enhanced with a good dram
    and celebrated by all good wights-

    I'm hoping that V will continue its sharp de-sucking curve, and Mesure will get more to do than stand around, scowling in a vaguely constipated manner.

    Ian -- moonrise varies with location quite a lot:

    "Some times of moon rise in New Zealand are:
    N. Is. Auckland 8.35pm, Hastings 8.35pm, New Plymouth 8.45pm, Wellington 8.49pm.
    S. Is. Nelson 8.56pm, Christchurch 9.07pm, Dunedin 9.25pm, Invercargill 9.36pm."
    (quoted from here )

    Unfortunately for most of us the eclipse will be in totality by the time the moon rises so it will be dim and may be difficult to spot, especially as the sky won't be fully dark by then.

    But it is very groovy to have a lunar eclipse on the shortest night of the year!

  • Craig Ranapia,

    I've got a bone to pick with you usually impeccable PAS trendsters. Why was I only introduced to the sublimely freak-tastic Janelle Monáe and her brain-blastingly awesome album The ArchAndroid last week?

    I'm pretty sure I shared this beauty when it came out:


    especially given that it's such a blatant rip-off of the Thin Lizzy tv ad :)
