Sometimes when feeling a little down in the dumps I resort to the la la songs magic to cheer me up

I really can't decide... christmas party already booked in for tonight and to be honest its that time of year I'd rather do little than a lot
I know it won't be as good as '89 with Gray Clail and Tackhead... how could it be... but he's still one of my heroes
this may just come down to the line
potential for going - 70% depending on beer intake at christmas function and ability of friends to entice me along
mmm with that last line I can see the percentages increasing
best find out the playing times and decide - so not going if its stupid late

"I'm a teenage girl and I bumfuck dubstep.
I just never 'like' it because I'm connected to facebook, all my whorish friends wouldn't understand me."



Dubstep is more than wibble wobble basslines and farty noises
Notice the lack of generic in this tune
and mr derivative isn't home either
So would you bumfuck it?
and what the hell does that mean, I got the phrase from a youtub comment and am now deeply disturbed and shall never look a teen in the eye again
I have a feeling this week shall be long... and drunken with few moments for dubstep... its about the Greg Wilson re-edits and disco mixes for me

In a previous life I used to wander to work at some ungodly hour and get on with stuff before anyone else arrived - this suited me as I am easily distracted so better to get things done and then talk and mooch much of the day away than not.
At the time I was very taken with this particular track and so on arrival at work I'd crank this up on my stereo and get into the workday mood... sometimes I'd replay it a few too many times. Was good as they say.
Whilst I'd be doing this the cleaners (poor souls) would be there doing their business and I always thought they hated with a passion my daily fix until I finished at that role and during one of my final days the cleaner told me they'd miss my morning wake up calls - I guess it was better than being there on their own, or perhaps they dug the tune... or maybe just maybe it was my smiley face - nah doubt its that one, I can be quite the grumpy pants first thing - at least until I play the right piece of music or have caffe…

I condemn violence against women

Image
White Ribbon offers men the opportunity to be part of the solution to end violence against women. Violence is endemic within New Zealand. One in three women are victims of violence from a partner, while on average fourteen women are killed each year by a member of their own family.

White Ribbon is a campaign led by men who condemn violence against women and take action. We are part of a global campaign committed to ending violence against women. You can help effect change by supporting White Ribbon.

Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women. In 2011 our campaign focus will be on two things: what men can do to change attitudes toward violence; and developing a narrative around positive male role models.

Bats on Saturday night was a real pleasant gig... and yep I mean pleasant in all its very un rock and roll implications

laidback, understated and fun which suited me just fine after a long day drinking and eating in and around the grey lynn festival - first time I've made it to the actual park since moving to, um, right beside the park - good to see all the drop ins and visitors we even had a nice fenceside chat with Mayor Len Brwon as he made his way to the park... on reflection we should have offered him a beer

Now The Bats didn't play this puppy though, my fave from their extensivve catalogue

next up for me The Clean, whoop whoop

I wonder if you're there doing the good work that good work does or someplace else

I doubt you're playing the piano but having typed that it amuses me to think perhaps if bashing the keys this would be in your repertoire

So I watched the news

Image
Switching between TV1 and 3's coverage of the days events.

This was quite novel for me as I've all but given up watching any broadcast TV completely these past few years. The Occassional five minutes here and there (usually fox news as I leave the house in the morning - its funny, ok), so on managing to first navigate the remotes and get the machines to work I was I must admit a tad shell shocked. All those ads and god most of them are badly made, well cheap is possibly more ot the point. Anyways I digress.

I watched the news, for the stranding of the Rena on Astrolabe Reef off the port of Tauranga concerns me greatly, not just because I care about our environment and country... but because for some seven years I lived in Mount Maunganui, back before the amalgamation into Tauranga city and the linking harbour bridge was errected - man it was a weird but wonderful small town (13,000) and community. Quite the sobering introduction to a wider NZ than my years in the South Island,…

Occupy Wall Street

Confronting the Malefactors
By PAUL KRUGMAN

There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear, but we may, at long last, be seeing the rise of a popular movement that, unlike the Tea Party, is angry at the right people.

When the Occupy Wall Street protests began three weeks ago, most news organizations were derisive if they deigned to mention the events at all. For example, nine days into the protests, National Public Radio had provided no coverage whatsoever.

It is, therefore, a testament to the passion of those involved that the protests not only continued but grew, eventually becoming too big to ignore. With unions and a growing number of Democrats now expressing at least qualified support for the protesters, Occupy Wall Street is starting to look like an important event that might even eventually be seen as a turning point.

What can we say about the protests? First things first: The protesters’ indictment of Wall Street as a destructive force, econo…

The Gunner's Lament

A Maori gunner lay dying
In a paddyfield north of Saigon,
And he said to his pakeha cobber,
"I reckon I've had it, man! '

And if I could fly like a bird
To my old granny's whare
A truck and a winch would never drag
Me back to the Army.

'A coat and a cap and a well-paid job
Looked better than shovelling metal,
And they told me that Te Rauparaha
Would have fought in the Vietnam battle.

'On my last leave the town swung round
Like a bucket full of eels.
The girls liked the uniform
And I liked the girls.

'Like a bullock to the abattoirs
In the name of liberty
They flew me with a hangover
Across the Tasman Sea,

'And what I found in Vietnam
Was mud and blood and fire,
With the Yanks and the Reds taking turns
At murdering the poor.

'And I saw the reason for it
In a Viet Cong's blazing eyes -
We fought for the crops of kumara
And they are fighting for the rice.

'So go tell my sweetheart
To get another boy
Who'…

yep
