Meantime, I sprung for Mr Scott’s single a coupla days ago, and have been listening to it almost literally non-stop on my epic attempt to walk every mall and MRT station in Singapore.
It's an odd but fun feeling listening to waiata from home on foreign transit systems. Last time I was in Singapore it was the first L.E.D.s album. New York, the Lontalius album (which was quite good for feeling mysterious and emo on the subway).
Quite pleased to have the copy of Respect which would have traveled NZ’s airwaves bitd, a NZ pressing too. Released in 67 I think so now 51 years old!
(E.g., where does Nek Minit dude fit in?)
He doesn’t! But he does!
I think it's not meant to be a coherent narrative. Why is Jason Gunn there? Why did he fight with Mad Mick? Why does one of the guys keep turning into other people?
Ah, this would explain why I found that ad vague/confusing.
I didn't actually grasp the full narrative until I watched it on my computer screen, but it's more about the vibe.
They're wasted, bro. But not so wasted they won't stop their mate driving.
Meanwhile, another good Dan Satherly story – interviewing Professor James Flynn, who is often (mis)quoted by Molyneux and his fans, but who says Molyneux can fuck off, basically.
but people getting mega wasted as their first experience doesn’t seem like a good idea.
Yeah, I know of one cannabis activist with a very prodigious capacity for consuming it who was knocked over by his first try of shatter. You only need a very little bit.
Plus The new science of psychedelics
A better life through chemistry!
I'm reading that to review right now. Great book!
It is always interesting seeing what happened to people you went to school with, I remember Elliot Ikilei discovering Farrakhan.
I was surprised by how shabby and basic their schtik was and how poorly prepared for NZ Context the ugly little circus act was. Also disappointed that such easily refuted nonsense was enough to seemingly discombobulate Paddy Gower – maybe there wasn’t enough time to really get stuck in.
Same and same. Gower didn't do well. The way to handle an interview with people like that is to quote exactly what they said to them and invite them to explain what they meant. Otherwise they'll just throw the question back, deny, divert, etc.
The absence of fear is what they fear.
