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…
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.

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
but I think this is real clever
and a cracking tune to boot
I've searched youtub many times over the past few years waiting for someone to upload this track.... now if someone would just do the davy graham tune I adore I'll only have several thousand more songs to find
