    • Transit’s tasteless menu
      • 22 Feb 2009
      • Eye of the Fish
      • The latest iteration of what was once Transit, now called the NZ Transport Agency, (obligatory maori moniker: Waka Kotahi) is now into publishing. Edition no. 3 of Pathways is glossy and cheerful, and like most of the recent publications from recently re-organised public service departments, entirely full of bumpf and platitudes with nothing much useful to say at all. One article however was wors

      • If you head on over to fish central, we’re diving deep into the murky depths in order to protest S92A. We’re sure you’ve heard all about it, so we’ll spare the diatribe. However, things arent all gloomy. Check back in a day (or two) to find a newly re-emerged fish - things will have changed…

This year’s event is headlined by two major acts - one local legend, and one international superstar. Fat Freddy’s Drop will return after appearing at the first Summerset music festival in 2007.  The Wellington icons of soul/dub/funk

Carnival night parade is all about being hot and sweaty and (so it seems, near-naked), along with the inevitable music, rhythm and hypnotic samba music beats.

      • Ask people what their favourite New Zealand film is, and quite often, they'll say Goodbye Pork Pie, Geoff Murphy's classic 1981 road film. You could say that the main character of the film is a car - the zippy yellow mini which has since become an instantly recognisable Kiwi icon.And if you haven't seen it (or want to see it again!) the Film Archive will be screening it over two nights this Friday

We blogged about it before, back in June last year when it was announced and publicly notified - and we thought that the residents of Ohariu Valley might put up a bigger stink than the residents of nearby Makara did when they were confronted with Project West Wind.

      •   Margaret Stoddart, Roses, 1920s In Europe during the 1300s February 14th was thought to be the day when birds paired off to mate. This date was originally an ancient Greco-Roman pagan festival, and was later called St Valentines Day Feast by the Church. Since the 1300s, on February 14th each year, roses (and flowers in general),  have been widely accepted as gifts and Saint Valentines Day is now
