  • Speaker: KICK IT! The Highest Mountain,…,

    Silvio Berlusconi can you hear me? Silvio Berlusconi your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!”

    Bloody hell! Welcome to Hyperbole Central!

    Heard the news on RNZ 'round 6am. First reaction was disbelief but now I am a believer. Nevertheless, it does not take the gloss of a splendid rugby test match on Saturday night.

  • Southerly: Bob's Top Five,

    ..and didn't that 50 years of Tele get off to a good start last week.

    Yes, it was excellent, especially in respect of not privileging the history of any particular broadcaster...and if I can take the liberty of promoting my research site one more time, there is a discussion developing at http://www.historyoftvinnz.com

  • Southerly: Bob's Top Five,

    Gulp! You guys are out there, just waiting to pounce! This is after I corrected a couple of construction signs downtown, which read We apoligise for the disruption

    You ought to, at least once. Children love to be terrified--and it is only mildly so.

  • Southerly: Bob's Top Five,

    As soon as I put on something else I get the request for "Racing Stop Song".

    I have long been interested in how children value repetition (the same Wiggles song for the 183rd time; Tory Story for the 87th time), whilst adults tend to value the new and novel. I guess someone has something to say on this somewhere.

    We do suffer as parents--I learnt more than I ever wanted to know about dinosaurs and the name of every Pokemon character (my son could recite the whole 150+ of them!)

  • Up Front: Can't We All Just Fucking Get Along?,

    of all the varied and variable anti-SATC2 tirades unleashed of late, Mark Kermode's was the most entertaining.

    Thanks for the link, Matthew. I love it--the sort of things you want to be able to say on radio, within the hearing of thousands. Gee, if I only had a similar opportunity to rip into Transformers2__or __The A Team!

  • Hard News: Saying Goodbye to The Independent,

    I agree with you, Craig. I think they need to find a a replacement Good Sean as Geoff Robinson is often just too Mr Softy-Pants. Might be good to have a stroppy woman there for a change.

    Oh, will this end-of-semester essay marking ever end...!!!

  • Hard News: Saying Goodbye to The Independent,

    Sean Plunkett's just resigned from RNZ.

    Oh, really! Who is he off to bully and badger now?

    There is that R. Brown fellow who could do great things on Morning Report.
