  • Speaker: How StuffMe looked from the regions,

    press, repress, depress...
    Sad to hear that Rod Oram has had to leave his diminishing platform in the Sunday Star Times - Farfax really have lost the plot.
    listen hear:

    compare and contrast to the Aussie Fairfax management getting pay rises while firing editorial staff (nice work if you can get it!);

    I’ve learned a new word: scrying.

    That augurs well for your vocabulary...

  • Hard News: Orcon IRL: Mummy and daddy,…,

    Techweek 2017 has begun in 23 centres around the motu…

    I’m assuming you are meaning motu as: island, country, land, nation, clump of trees, ship – anything separated or isolated. rather than cut or wound

    and for Chchch folk here’s the breakdown of what’s on:

  • Hard News: Behind those Herald…, in reply to Matthew Poole,

    His antics have cost the Auckland Property Investors’ Association their ANZ sponsorship

    They were damn stupid to send out a dvd/video without actually viewing it first.

    Heavy Folk lore…
    This story is hiding away on Stuff at the moment (ta Blair for pointing me to it)

    I had to write in and get them to spell Paul’s last name correctly – how hard can it be with the album or internet at hand to get the basics right?
    Not sure about the laboured baby-poo intro, and I never knew that Robert Scott had paws (an animal’s foot having claws and pads) – but otherwise an interesting talk with Bob.
    The article omits to mention they have a gig in Switzerland as well (in Sion, not many NZ bands play there, I'd imagine).
    Looks like a great European tour – I’m particularly impressed with their Paris gig venue – Petit Bain which is on a barge moored on the Seine – next to the Piscine Josephine Baker (a swimming pool also on a barge!) and adjacent to the Arthur Rimbaud Walkway (very Verlaines!) and just one barge from the Simone de Beauvoir walking bridge – aah Paris!

    The Star

    Which often has stories of major local import that The Press misses and never seems to follow up on after they have been publicised in The Star, whereas Fairfax seems happy to report on stories reported on in The NZ Herald - seems odd to me.

    as well as Mulholland Drive…

    Here are some of David Lynch's pix of it.

    That’s pretty awesome

    and with the 'original' Deane Waretini
    https://www.discogs.com/Ana-Hato-Deane-Waretini-Pokarekare/release/4887925

    Not to be confused with his son - born Adrian who released The Bridge as Deane/Dean Waretini.
    The first song sung in te reo to top the NZ singles chart.
