  • Busytown: The shakes,

    Sorry... effective posting inhibited by amount of glass embedded in floor, spooky rolling nature of walls and amount of wine/tonic used, sad about our provincial town...

    The thing is we should not live here!! is the overriding feeling.
    Once again waiting to see if girls settle... the most interesting thing for me is when that 7.1 hit for the first time in my life I knew we were it...

    NZST: Fri, Sep 10 2010 10:04 pm# Magnitude: 4.3 and once again we watched each other to see if we needed to develop our response into something more protective.

    one 14y one 17 & 2 parents one concious & one exhausted...

    everyone has a torch a phone, 2-3 hiding places, 2 escape routes and a safe house if out when another mean one hits. Mostly someone awake...
    Wonder about leaving again the city... bailing think about going back to school on Monday...

    Just thought I'd say don't have to know you to tell you this is not pleasant

  • Hard News: Little pieces of a big picture,

    you know I just don't want to do that, go to bed right now, one 5.2 one 5.4 in half an hour I am just not sure about where to be right now, upstairs with the family, downstairs near the door or my latest plan in another island..

  • Hard News: Little pieces of a big picture,

    Everyone in our house is bit jaded by the living through that wee bit of history and not being crushed. Although the kitchen was a winning combo of choc sauce & broken glass & 'the room at the end' upstairs awash with the record/book/ cd detritus of far too many happy years in student radio.

    However, this is really a very specific request, very lovely humans with 2 cute little boys, a little baby & one lovely, very elderly dog have had their home trashed by earthquake.

    So attempting to find a long term renter 3+ bedroom home in Merivale, near primary school..any ideas??? Thought casting a wide net through such a constructive group may come up with some ideas.

  • Hard News: The Commission, and creative risk,

    oh at the risk of being shot down in flames, some of Radiradirah dynamic & interesting, very pythonesque. The animated stuff is well funny but like Skitz , it polarises, is patchy and its certainly not done to admit watching. Know a younger audience 14+ who have grown up with __FOTC__and have no preconceptions about NZ humour and love it.

    From experience know that it is so difficult ( read bloody near impossible) to get humans in decent numbers to attend NZ film even within well supported festivals.

  • Southerly: Since You Asked,

    Spooky knew a lovely Sarah Holt in chch cha when parts of Canterbury Uni was more politically aware...during the grunge years.

    Defiantly saw all the major players of fine tale yesterday as I lurched through Ballantynes, attempting to get that 'first hour free' parking

  • Up Front: Time for an Intervention,

    Sacha tks 'nuf said', please don't mention that status as teacher trainee or my unique system of apostrophes that matches aforementioned spelling to any of the candidates, or we could end up with Sue Wells in that already dreadful mix...

  • Up Front: Time for an Intervention,

    ohh long time enjoyer, first time caller. Driven to print by the travesty of Sideshow Bob.

    Don't even start me on the Art Centre, Odeon, Regional council debacle!! and then two days ago I get some creepy call on who would I vote for, Jim Anderton perhaps? wrong wrong wrong!

    Bob the show pony do seem cut from a similarly poor cloth as Banks and the "lets rip those hundred year old sheds down" brigade.

    So apart from a couple of dodgy moments, at least 1 with the Edgeware pool, Gazza was mint, low key, always personable and has a son who runs the best sifty joint in town 'Goodbye Blue Monday', which I will need to visit much more frequently to recover from these awful choices.
