Everything on tv IS product, sometimes cool, sometimes poor,sometimes entertaining,
sometimes a bore,he found a formula,that pulled the punters, & held them,perhaps his major achievement, folk "buy" from whom they like !
Most enjoy folk, that they identify with,whether its Paul Henry,Micheal Laws,John Campbell,Paul Holmes, or Russel Brown !
I prefer a smogasboard, to absorb, the way the nation see's itself !
Fresh green image !
For the decade/year ?
ironic,that it just keeps coming back,
& its neither, fresh, or green !
Soft targets are usually the target, the harder ones have the resources,to cover their backsides,& leave egg, on the face of the oppressors !
If the country was run by smokers,smarter decisions, on a range of matters could prevail !
To much boring rugby,hopeless cricketers, & past it & already seen bands,all charging more than their worth,
sand & sea, have more appeal, if weather allows,
or, plane trips, offer better value !
Wasn"t Fa Goff, Minister of Education,when Douglas & Lange fought over who was ACTUALLY running the show ? Isn't that when university fees, started, despite all the old Princess St branch, getting a free education, Fa Goff may well be a hard working local MP, but hey, that;s what he's paid to be,well, & with signifigant super,coming his way, on retirement !
This govt leader & party have done just about everything to loose the next election,
yet there appears little will to win from Labour, apart from platittudes & moans !
Housing SOUNDS promising,but yea right, sums up,the likely hood of real action
in there prospective first term !
Where is the capital gains tax, to deter multiple home ownership, wealthy immigrants, sure see the easy money to be made currenty !
Good on yer mate, at least ur having a go, in the great kiwi tradition,
ur've knocked the bugger off !
Public Address, can be relied on in breaking news & entertainment,
cool when there mixed , even when its for the edificant, or the writer !
Teenage years growing up in Auckland,Rolling Stones at the Civic,,The Beatle Inn, & the
Pow Wow club, all I care to say about,lust is, generous morality seems to be the great kiwi way, with more action than talk, & it don't seem to matter, if ya straight,bi,gay,trans,or just fem friendly, it NEVER been difficult to get lucky !
Frankly, I don't don't care what professional entertainers do, to compete, I just wanna see the BEST compete,
Sport is for the under 15 kids, no payments for them.
All those competing in London, are professional athletes -entertainers,
same for rugby, league, cricket, boxing , rowing, all of them are well paid entertainers,
not that very different from Rock stars,politicians, or clergy,jounalists its a JOB,
in my opinion, there is just too much hipocracy, & dishonsty, in the way
most of the above, go about - their WORK, & the way they present !
Well I don't get why people would choose to join the military - anywhere !
I don't really know -why folk would wanna marry,
surely, its not a piece of paper, that means commitment, a will means ya stuff goes where ya choose !
Aren't people more likely, to stay together, without legal compulsion, name change,
civil union, or is it just "the religious & state approval".
I just prefer a range of concurrent lovers, which seems to work well fro me !
But , I guess life would be a bore, if we all saw the world in the same !
