  • Hard News: Drugs and why Dunne did it,

    I read somewhere recently (a Herald profile, maybe) that he was reading Chasing the Dream.

  • Speaker: Are we seeing the end of MSM,…,

    I can't seem to find a suitable thread so I will post this naked promotion here:

    Auckland folk may be interested in catching a film I co-produced, screening as part of Doc Edge Auckland this Friday at Q Theatre (in Shorts 2, 2.30pm June 2). I will probably do a Q&A after the screening, explaining how this natty little film evolved, whilst its creator Nick Homler was a Fulbright Scholar at Waikato in 2015-16. It is a celebration of small, independent cinemas in New Zealand, and the people who run them.

  • Hard News: Rugby Now,

    Tickets for Lions games are rather too expensive so we will watch it on Sky--along with the SoHo channel, the reason why we stick with it.
    I just hope that there will be as spectacular an encounter as the Maori All Blacks game of the last Lions tour.

  • Hard News: Food and dancing,

    Lovely photos, Russell. I went to the Avondale Market a couple of Sundays back, It is a great experience but I was hoping to find more stalls selling fruit from the Pacific Islands (papaya, mangoes, lichees, big passionfruit, swert bananas) that were in such abundance in Samoa,

    OK I tried the red button but it didn't seem to be working.

  • Hard News: Media Media Media,

    I have joined up with Newsroom.pro. It is $29 a month but cancelling our NZ Herald sub would more than compensate.

    Good news about Media Take. I will try and get up for it when I can.

    Russell: re the Patron thing. I think we are still contributing a regular auto payment to PA but should we shift it to this new option?

  • Hard News: Media Media Media,

    To call the commercial radio stations disingenuous would be a a bit of an understatement. Lying bastards would be a better description.

  • Hard News: Fear of Cycling,

    I have come to love my e-bike (Trek Conduit) but it does pose new potential risks, even on a daily trip from Claudelands to the uni. Because of the possibility to ride fast and at a sustained pace (I regularly exceed the 25km limit) and because the bike travels so quietly, there is a greater need to look ahead and prepare to slow or stop, especially on shared routes. A bell helps but not necessarily for those gazing down, engrossed in their mobiles.

  • Capture: Where have you been all Summer?,

    Attachment

    We had eight days of intense summer weather (Samoa in January). I was hiding away for a Significant Birthday.

  • Speaker: Broadcasting and the Public Interest,

    This came this morning regarding the attempted merger of Fairfax & NZME;

    Good morning

    Having read your submission re the proposed merger of NZME/ Wilson and Horton and Fairfax I thought you would be interested in results we are releasing today of a survey of New Zealanders' views on this.

    They concur broadly with your conclusions.

    Horizon Research conducted this national survey in the public interest. I am surprised the media companies have not done the same, or published anything if they have.

    We post the results here:

    https://www.horizonpoll.co.nz/page/451/disbelief-disagreement-greet-major-media-merger-plan

    We also published comments made by survey respondents.

    https://www.horizonpoll.co.nz/page/452/kiwis-advic

    The survey is representative of the 18+ population at the most recent census.

    If we can help with further information please don't hesitate to ask.

    Kindest regards
