    forget the skeletons in the closet...
    For your diversion and delectation may i direct you to this fine piece of character driven dissertation.

    In the murky depths of history ....conjecture lurks
    What is the true history of New Zealand?
    What mysteries await?
    What does the truth have to do with anything?
    After all ....people will have their way
    Characters will have their say.....

    Peter Tait is simply brilliant...

  • Speaker: Need,

    I'd just like to offer my congratulations to Jackie Clark for being the Supreme Winner of the 2018 Women of Influence awards.
    Good to see good work recognised.

  • Hard News: Abroad and Home, in reply to Rich Lock,

    The Met police have cancelled all leave around the end of March next year, as they anticipate severe civil unrest (potential food riots, basically). ….
    So. I’m quietly laying in extra tins, batteries, candles, and so on, because nothing that’s happened so far fills me with any confidence that this isn’t suddenly going to lurch sideways.

    The new Parliamentary dietary directive?:
    KEEP
    CLAM
    &
    CARRION

    getting all your ducts in a row…

    I believe I may need to steal your creativity create a
    "Don’t just sit there, Gaffer something" T shirt

    Put me down for one!

    and maybe you can do something with this t-shirt idea I’ve had percolating for years – “Born – Dead: File/Life loading bar’ see pic above (but better executed) – I’ll take 5% 0f profits after production

    There were at least three Ian Dalziel’s in Chchch – one died recently I hear, as a friend went to the funeral, and it was well underway before he realised it wasn’t me…
    I assume we all thought we were ’the actual Ian Dalziel’
    - I am still riddled with imposter syndrome, though.
    I like the idea of some meta culture monster –
    "It came from the liner notes,
    a titanic and increditable terror,
    – ID-2D!!"

    (in 3D in some arenas)

    – there’s at least a Sapphire and Steel episode in it….

    PS ’you lot’ indeed!
    PAS is all ‘we’

    My roadieing days were 35-40 years ago now.

    Ditto.
    I remember being shocked by Aussie road crews who actively disliked the band they were crewing for – it was just work!
    Getting paid was quite a concept though …
    Especially after, say, packing The Hitmen in and out, up & down the back stairs of the Blacktown Leagues Club, for the pleasure of a support gig!
    There are a lot of dues ya have to pay in that industry…

    Here’s a random Radio Station for y’all to enjoy – WGXC from NY State –
    Where Michael Wilde has a monthly ’Mostly Singles’ show – he has recently (last year) been introduced to the body of work by Jay Clarkson and the wider NZ Music scene – he has (understandably) become a convert !!
    Here is a link to his various shows – including the 2nd NZ music show (a third one is in the planning) and his Jay Clarkson show.
    Community Radio serves Communities of Interest well… Enjoy
