      • Skin Deep Differences Don’t Matter in Katipo Katipo female and eggsacs. Image ©Te Papa Having spent my last two postings dealing with butterflies and moths, it’s time to move on to the animals I love the most – spiders! The subject of this posting is the katipo spider (Latrodectus katipo), New Zealand’s only endemic spider known to be dangerous to humans. Katipo is a Maori word meaning ‘night stin

      • Eye of the Fish
      • The Eye of the Fish has tried to keep away from the whole sorry saga of the Sports Centre, but recent developments deserve a forum for comment. The entire Sports Centre fad has escaped by the Fish, for whom the idea of 12 courts full of screaming netballers sounds more like a living hell than a place we’d ever want to go to. Apparently even 12 courts is a small number, claim the supporters,

    • More about squid, now online!
      • 9 Feb 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • In the last week or so the squid has had to squish over a bit - to make room for a whole new range of Te Papa blog posts!  Art, moths and butterflies, fossil tuatara, plants (and squid of course) - you can read about them all here.  I think it’s this incredible diversity of the collections and the research into them that makes Te Papa such a great museum - and a pretty amazing place to work.

      • There are lots of those activist punk rock type of groups around these days. To be honest, I find that most of them are a bit too earnest to take seriously. Their message usually seems to overshadow the actual music. But Canada's Propagandhi who formed in 1986, are one of the true blue originals who I reckon are the real deal and really worth seeing. Not only do they have

    • Waitangi
      • 7 Feb 2009
      • Eye of the Fish
      • Around 8 years ago, the city of Wellington was in a turmoil. The aged forces of Waterfront Watch, an elderly bunch of Wellingtonians with time on their hands, decided to take on the Wellington City Council over their proposals for the waterfront land. The public was stirred up into a paroxysm of hatred for Variation 17 - what were portrayed as proposals by the WCC to allow building all over the waterfront. Waterfront Watch were largely successful, forcing the hand of the Council to reduce the scope of their ambitions, and lobbying hard for the creation of what is now Waitangi Park. And well done too - the park is great. But now there’s another proposal on the waterfront.

He has an aversion to stages, making his performances something to behold.  He piles up synthesizers and effects pedals on a low sitting table, somewhere among the audience, and encourages participation.  He released a whole bunch of independent re

      • Recently, a group of researchers in New Zealand suggested that the absence of fossils between 25 and 22 million years ago indicated that the islands completely disappeared under water, and then later re-emerged. But a newly discovered fossil reptile suggests this theory does not hold water. Alan Tennyson, Curator of Fossil Vertebrates at Te Papa, and colleagues, found the remains of a fossilized

It’s great to see it again. Like most paintings, there’s a lot about this work that you don’t get until you see it in the flesh. There’s beauty of the painting itself, its amazing combination of subtlety and urgency.

      • Time to get back to talking about architecture. One of the things that the construction slow-down may give us, incidentally, is more time to actually think about architecture - the hectic pace that the architects in our city have been working at, with barely time to pause between designs, has led to a plethora of work of (at times) dubious quality. The designs for one multi-storey apartment buildi
