    Thanks for that Soon Lee - an excellent piece of rustling image rustling and wrangling!

    tickety boo...
    Speaking of booking fees - a wellington promoter is reacting to a monopoly being granted in Council facilities

    The problem boils down to a six-year contract agreed by Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency (WREDA) and Ticketmaster and will take effect from June 1.

    Here is a brilliantly hypnotic single shot video for ‘no choice’, from Blair Parkes forthcoming album, ‘as saturations’.
    It was shot near Punakaiki on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, following a number of heavy storms earlier this year.

    Drug users are vilified and patronised everywhere else I go.

    In Auckland they are all 'villa-fied'....

    Thanks for Lost In Space Russ.
    It's great that Marty is reprising some of the old classics.

    I think I recognise that polka dot shirt from back then, too...
    ...I've still got the 'Russian' one you brought back from London.

  • Hard News: The Oncoming Day, in reply to Hazel Heal,

    That didn’t get past the moderator, whereas the immoderate does.

    I've found it doesn't pay to include links - even though they back up and supports cogent points and add knowledge to a 'discussion' .
    So best to allude to things or give clear search pointers - any Stuff story will pass muster, and lately I've had luck with getting Government links allowed through.
    If you have multiple points to make it's better to make multiple comments, as one contentious (for whatever reason) point among many others will see the rest thrown out as well.
    Save your comments before posting and try them again later - another moderator my allow them or the discussion (if it can often be called that) may move in such a way as to make them more palatable.
    I often flag as inappropriate comments that bully or belittle, and will go further up the foodchain if necessary.

    Jammy Handwrecks...
    As dildonic dilettantes we have achieved a closed loop - dildo derives from diletto (delight) - so before things get out of hand, let the feedback commence!

    and I note that didoes are mischievous deeds - have we been sold a pump?

    and (b) he’s had his results back after his anti-viral treatment (Harvoni) and he’s Hep C free for the first time in 20 years.

    as Stuff reported today withs some florid prose and nasty trolls - some of the nastier comments have been removed now...
