  • Hard News: Family Matters: a post about 2020,

    I guess I’ve been a little insulated from the (justified) existential angst many have been feeling this year. This is how I normally live. Apart from having to queue 2 metres apart to get into the supermarket, Level 4 was barely noticeable for me. I’m not the social type, preferring to connect online and that didn’t change, though it became a lot more strident. What this year revealed for me was the deep streak of stupidity that runs though our country (and many others) and what it revealed in me was an ever-lessening tolerance for its practitioners.

    Kia kaha, Russell and Fiona, and Sunset Sam – oops, I mean James and The One Who Does Not Like Being Discussed.

    Have a great summer.

  • Access: Bubble of One,

    Thanks for this. My bubble of 1.3 (my cat) is much the same and in a small town where I don't really have anyone to ask anyway. That said, apart from the angst which has been real, my daily life hasn't changed that much as I generally stay at home migrating between the bed and the sofa. Kia kaha, Michelle.

  • Hard News: A fun but flawed weed documentary,

    I am constantly surprised that people expect well-researched material from a show pony. He is mired in sensationalism and gotcha journalism, which is why I didn't bother watching his programme. You may see it as a good faith effort, Russell, but we need more than "good faith" to get us through to the point of the referendum.

  • Hard News: Rip It Up: A history of us, a…,

    Kudos to Cammick and all the elves that made RIU happen. It was such good reading (most of the time) even when I didn't agree with the reviews.

    And more kudos to Simon for getting hold of it and letting go again, into the national memory. Well done, that man!

    I’m trying.

    I know, but you are one column and Young and Trevett publish multiples of trash on their own.

  • Speaker: The economics of shit speech,

    But I'm sorry I cannot bring myself to give Teh Herald any money while they continue to spread shit.

    Moi aussi. Their political reckons are so fucking bad, I want them to curl up and die. Which would be hard on Fisher, Ng, et al but the rest of the thing is just dross. And it's dross across the whole NZME enterprise.
