    Big shout out to the organisers and volunteers of Girls Rock! Camp, my daughter attended this year and loved it. I don't think I'll be getting my garage back anytime soon.

    Ha ha – that's great! And yes, the women behind Girls Rock Camp are awesome.

    Probably never. That's partly what annoyed me about him sounding off on Twitter – this is the music community attending to its own business and the very last thing it needs is to be inflicted with ignorant trolls.

    Ross Lowell, the inventor of gaffer tape, died recently aged 92. Respect.

    Rock without the Roll would never be the same...

    Light Blue Paper and retire…
    Sean Plunket is as much an odious little oik as Damien Grant.
    Grant happily uses his cosy little sinecure as a ‘columnist’ for Stuff to push out his barrow of incendiary ideas in this ‘opinion piece’

    Stuff should have a notice at the foot or start of this piece of dog-whistling drivel that Grant is a fireworks importer – not just leave it subtly in the title of the TV One video.

    I must confess to a sense of shame here. When I took a six-week sabbatical from Twitter for the summer, I found I could write 800 publishable words every night. I haven’t been able to do that since I reactivated my account.

    That explains why Liam Hehir’s conservative ramblings via Stuff are so inchoate and incoherent – his Twitter addiction!

    I thought his sideswipe at Public Address revealing though

    Public Address continues to crank out posts about legalising weed and bands you’ve probably never heard of. .

    But I would, wouldn’t I…

    I was appalled at how fast a piece about ‘Ruth Dyson retiring at the next election’ on Stuff yesterday descended into a hate-fest of Trump-base proportions – comments were closed quickly, and I see many of the more odious and vile ones have been removed now – including the as the ‘user name’ “momo=jacinda” – there are some ugly and mean-spirited people being enabled out there.
    Stuff really needs to seriously and quickly re-evaluate their comment section, people should use their own names and own their own words – far too many anonymous bullies being given succour, to what end?
    – once the communal discussion pool is polluted what happens then?

    I use my own name on facebook and utube( which is a magnet for global crazies) I dont do Stuff. I only use this name here, I was looking to change it but my username seemed to be locked in on my profile.
