Winter can be a bastard Rain getting all over your shoes and making your socks wet? Oh fuck that noise. Waking up and feeling the chill of the air as you walk to the bathroom. A nice hot shower is a temporary reprieve sure, then what happens when you turn the stream off […]
No doubt about it, Auckland is the big smoke of New Zealand. I mean that purely figuratively; out of the thousands of people I’ve passed in the street, a mere handful of them smoke. From what I’ve seen. I moved here two weeks ago today. My mother and her husband drove me up, my entire life’s […]
If you’re passing through T.A., check out Walton St Cafe Te Awamutu is a gorgeous town smack bang in the middle of the North Island, christened the Rosetown of New Zealand. TA’s borne its share of creativity in its time, our crowning jewel are the Finn brothers of Split Enz and Crowded House fame. […]
Wonderland Teaser As I mentioned, I’ve been directing ladies in underwear. The last couple of days have included me watching a monitor, scrutinising performance, having to ignore said underwear. While I’m balls deep in post production for my feature film (currently called Chronesthesia but that very may well change soon), I’ve taken […]
Best 20 MOVIES of 2014 as voted by HJW We had some absolute crackers this year. A lot of sequels, remakes, films based on novels, and a few originals. Having gotten free movies all year and being a massive movie fan, I’ve been privileged enough to have seen the vast majority of theatrical released films in […]
What we learned is that Streat Cafe is an ethical, morally virtuous cafe. Not only do they ensure top of the range service and product, they contribute to society in more ways than economical. They train young people who have found themselves in unfortunate circumstances.
My dream is to walk into the meat section of the supermarket and have nothing but free-range chicken and grass-fed beef available. Australia has just done that with one supermarket and I really think we can do it across the entire country here in Aotearoa.
The price of having a bloody fanny “You okay?” I asked. My workmate’s frown had been fixed for much longer than usual. Brow knotted, she clipped back, “Fine.” A few minutes later, the lack of her standard perkiness had me worried. I waited until we had a degree of privacy. “Honestly, what’s up?” She looked back […]
Don’t know about politics? You’re not alone I have plenty of intelligent, worldly, passionate friends who have no idea who to vote for in this year’s election. And that’s gravy. While voting is important, it’s remarkably difficult to wade through the rivers of information-crap in order to garner any scrap of useful political knowledge. This […]
A cup of coffee today is too expensive. Gone are the golden days of $1 black coffees. If I pay over $3.50 for a long black, I’m stoked. I saw a flat white for $5.00 today in Hamilton, New Zealand, what the fuck is that about? Sure, the price of milk has risen (our chief […]
