Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

  1. TheContrarian 1

    Early morning flight to Auckland for the weekend.
    Going to see this:

    http://www.stardome.org.nz/the-war-of-the-worlds/

    • higherstandard 1.1

      I thought you were a young chap not an old git like me ?

      • TheContrarian 1.1.1

        In my early 30’s but having grown up in a household with this album (as I am sure every NZer did. As well as with copies of Brothers in Arms, Bat out of Hell, Dark Side of the Moon and Jethro Tulls’ Aqualung) I couldn’t miss the opportunity to see it on stage.

        • higherstandard 1.1.1.1

          Ah… fair enough.

          • TheContrarian 1.1.1.1.1

            I still have the original war of the Worlds vinyl at home – in perfect condition with the booklet.

            • lprent 1.1.1.1.1.1

              I had that as well up until 2 years ago. Like the books 16 weeks ago the boxes of vinyl didn’t survive the thought of trying to transport and find room for them.

              • TheContrarian

                I could never ditch my vinyl and books. I am a book fiend in particular.

                What I didn’t note about this particular weekend is that I have a date with my wife tonight, in my study with a bottle of wine where we are going to, without bad feeling or rancor, go through my large volume of books with a view to discard some of them.

                This is not going to end well…if she goes over my old Detroit techno 12” records and rare white-labels there’ll be trouble…

                • Ennui in Requiem

                  Somewhere I have Yellow Brick Road on clear see through blue vinyl…the oldest one I have still since childhood is a battered copy of Let It Bleed (Stones) and an equally rat eared copy of Space Oddity (Bowie)…..sad really, dont even have the kit to play them on anymore.

                  • TheContrarian

                    I have two copies of Yellow Brick Road for some reason. Became parted with my Shine on you Crazy Diamond somehow – which I am still pissy about.

                    I have an early pressing of Sgt Peppers though. I think it is worth something these days though haven’t checked it out yet.

        • Ennui in Requiem 1.1.1.2

          At half your age I saw Jethro Tull play a small venue, brilliant. Enjoy Saturdays gig, even if it is packed with oldies trying to groove!

    • halfcrown 1.2

      Enjoy yourself mate. I still have my double album c/w book. In very good condition and gets played a lot.

    • felix 1.3

      Hey Contrarian, I have an idea for an alternate weekend plan if yours fall through. Take every record mentioned in this thread except DSOTM and Let It Bleed, and put them in a pile on the lawn and set fire to them, and dancing on the ashes as you meditate on what you’re going to do with the rest of your life.

      • mac1 1.3.1

        There is of course a serious answer to the problem of storage of vinyl records. When I had a lot of spare time after an operation before returning to work, the application Audacity recorded all my vinyl and cassettes to hard drive and MP3. I can now play them whilst working. Noisy vinyl could be cleaned up too, if important enough.

        • felixviper 1.3.1.1

          I’m deadly serious about my solution to the storage problem of War Of The Worlds, Yellow Brick Road, Aqualung, Bat Out of Hell, Brothers In Arms, Sgt Pepper’s, and all of TC’s Detroit techno. I think storing them in a pile of molten plastic in the bin is ideal.

    • David H 1.4

      Well if you got to spend 50 bucks thats a bloody excellent way of spending it.

      Another ‘old’ git lolz

      • TheContrarian 1.4.1

        Well the show sucked so bad. So fucking bad.
        And there is no way I am destroying my techno, Felix. That shit is gold.

  2. vto 2

    Is it weekend social time of the week already?

    faaaarrk

  3. lprent 3

    The xmas party season is about to start with the work do. So does the annual question. Drive, designated driver, take taxi, or get Lyn to pick me up.

    The latter is impossible as she is is in the Himalaya’s watching the bold mice in her accommodation (while worrying about the shoot).

    Taxi I think…. What are other people doing?

    • fender/same sentiment less eloquent Viper 3.1

      Anything but drive Lynn, those xmas parties can quickly turn into a 21st re-run in my experience.

    • karol 3.2

      I don’t know.  But I was out earlier around midday getting some groceries.  There seems to be extra cars everywhere.  And its still weeks away from Xmas.

    • rosy 3.3

      Public transport. And snow boots – because it’s looking like a very cold and white Christmas here.

  4. Ennui in Requiem 4

    We had a hell of a weather week in Wellington, it ripped the hell out of the garden, freak wind, so there is a bit of fixing to do. Chickens will be in attendance proffering advice and demands for beet.

    Wondering how Annes budgie chicks are getting on?

  5. Anne 5

    The budgie chicks’ arrival was delayed one week due to neighbour being called away on family business. In the meantime, have purchased some budgie toys like ‘ropes’ and ‘ladders’ which have been hung from the roof and, hopefully, will keep them occupied and out of the oldies’ feathers.

  6. Rosie 6

    Time to Plant Up! Heavy and deep

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IvAQRu17YY

    Seriously though, we are involved in a local volunteer planters group charged with the mission of jazzing up the dreariness and encouraging biodiversity and will be out in force tomorrow morning.
    And yep, E In R, looks like we’ve got a southerly coming in, down our way tomorrow. Might be a nice change from a boistorous northerly eh? My tenacious tomatoes are hanging on which is a miracle given the week we have had.

    Our ducklings have grown and left the nursery that we provided. It was a joy watching them learn to fly.

    Oh and it’s delicious Indian feast night! Yay!

    • Ennui in Requiem 6.1

      The northerly knocked over some broad beans but the most annoying bit is the way it stunts growth. My toms are rubbish except those in the hot tunnel (tres bon, looking fabulous). What kind of ducks?

  7. Rosie 7

    On another note: Strength to those of you who are spending your Friday and your weekend cleaning up in West Ak after your tornado. I hope you get the help and support you need.

  8. prism 8

    I’ve jumped in and bought some Dave Brubeck – now that the old guy is dead. I liked his popular stuff and now have those plus some less well known. Did you know that he wrote a piece called Maori Blues or such when he was visiting here at one time?

  9. Just finished season 2 of Boss, now to catch up on American Horror Story. I live such an action-packed life.

  10. r0b 10

    Heading back South from Chch again Saturday – Mai Thai restaurant in Timaru – yum.

  11. Te Reo Viper 11

    Listening to Bowie live in New York on vinyl courtesy of the nice people at Vinyl Countdown in New Plymouth. Any posters above who want to recycle their rekkids rather than melt them down are welcome to send them my way. But definitely no Eagles, ta. Ditto Queeen, AC/DC and the various MOR dinosaurs who blighted the seventies and eighties. We didn’t fight the punk wars for nothing, people.

    • rosy viper 11.1

      We saw Bowie live in the pouring rain at Wellington stadium a few years ago. One of the most sincere artists I have every had the privilege to see. I was amazed to realise I remembered all the words from way back when, even though I hadn’t played the songs for years. My favourite

      • Te Reo Viper 11.1.1

        Lucky to have seen him twice Rosy, once at the Welly show you were at and also at Western Springs in ’78. The latter is still the best stadium gig I have ever been to, brutally loud, harshly lit and cathartic from start to finish. Just a monster of a show.
         
        The NYC LP is the recording of his 50th birthday party, lots of mates guesting, including Robert Smith, Sonic Youth and his American equivalent Lou Reed, who is also in fine, fine form. Could have stolen the recording from the net, but you never love what you get for free. And the vinyl just sounds better, anyway.
           

        • rosy viper 11.1.1.1

          Envious, I am. I’ll look up that LP.

          • Te Reo Viper 11.1.1.1.1

            Here’s a taster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbxp1hC8vts
             
            I’m told the song is about Lou, but I’d suspect its more likely to be about another of Warhol’s special friends, perhaps Holly Woodlawn (who Lou also namechecks in song – Holly comes from Miami, F.L.A. etc).

            • rosy viper 11.1.1.1.1.1

              Ta. He’s just …. awesome, isn’t he? And Lou Reed is not so bad either. Interesting about Holly Woodlawn. Definitely on the to buy list – might try for the dvd.

    • Rosie 11.2

      Te Reo and Rosy: David Bowie is a God. Thank You for bringing him into the craic.

      It’s good folks are getting into vinyl again/never left it behind. We’ve got a couple of decades worth here, over 1000 at last count but also gazillions of cd’s. When we bought our first house a few months ago we planned to set up an epic music room/book library but there has been too much other stuff to do. All the gear is sitting there in waiting to be set up and for now we just use some good computer speakers. Transferred 750 music files, with 30 of them having sub directories on to the hard drive last weekend and just play everything from there for now.

      There continues to be good new music being produced. Its a great time to be keeping your ears out and its good to have access to free downloads, which more bands seem to be doing these days.

      Rosy: Hope you’re having a wonderful time in your winter wonderland:-)

      • rosy viper 11.2.1

        To be honest we’re hibernating today – brunch in our thermally efficient, double-glazed home ;-). Although we might venture out to the markets a bit later, seeing as the temp has gone above the expected max of -3 (it’s -2 right now). Punsch is looking like a good option. Actually I do miss Wellington at this time of year – Enjoy it for us…

        And yes, Bowie is right up there. A music room is such a good idea – we’re not settled enough for that, surviving on downloads and I miss the touch and sight of all the paraphernalia that comes with records & CDs.

        As for new music, I’ve been intrigued by this young man – Jake Bugg recently. He seems to be a very musically mature 18 y.o.

        • Rosie 11.2.1.1

          That sounds like a life affirming sort of a chill! Would love to experience a northern Europeon winter one day:-)

          Hey, that Jake Bugg is indeed on to it for his young years. That was a good sound early this Sunday morning. Its interesting how the country sound has become respectable and acknowledged over the last decade or so. Ditching the rhinestones and bouffy hair, tweaking the sounds and finding a new audience seems to have worked for that genre. And rag time is making a comeback! One band I’m going to look into is the Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band, just to check it out. Sounds fun.
          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghQuXpVoVjA

          Right now though it the roots and culture show on good ol radio active.

          Have fun:-)

          • rosy viper 11.2.1.1.1

            Very cool! If they’re around in Feb, I think I might too… you’ll need to update me if you manage to go see them.

  12. Herodotus 12

    Watching the 6 star wars dvds with family in the order they were released – may take 2 weekends to complete. How do you tell kids that we start at episode 4 then progress to 6 then go to one. ;-)
    Pt 4 still holds up after all these years !!! And the special effects are still great.
    Regarding records – where do you find stylists ?

    To build a large society a book of common
    understandings were required, some say this
    book cannot change. Once first written, as
    it had no errors, enlightenment never need
    happen since. There are others that believe
    a hair ape, pushed out by climate change
    onto the savanna, learnt to standup, and
    adapt to eating bone marrow. Eventually the
    plains filled up with hairy apes, and some
    shifted to the sea shore, where they were
    nolonger dependant on kills from other beasts,
    as they found sea food. There they became
    the naked humans of today, unable to use
    body gestures, or hand gestures, in the sea
    they resorted to speach gestures. They of
    course did this to reach the apex of their
    existence writing a holy book that never could
    be questioned again. The Pope has no problem
    with evolution, my pinky fat near hairless behind.
