As a kid at a decile two high school in under National in the nineties, the one thing I did get a good education in was heavy metal. So, I appreciate 08wire setting their final video to the great Metallica ballad ‘Nothing Else Matters’.

You’ve done fantastic work, see you in 2011, if not before.

    Thanks O8 wire for all your efforts to keep our spirits up through the campaign. I really enjoyed the videos, especially the explosions. We might have a few of those in the next 1000 days.

    sorry to see you go guys
    I suppose the deal is that, unlike certain rightwing bloggers, we lefties don’t have unlimited time and money

    I’ve been thoroughly entertained/moved/inspired by your contributions to the leftwing cause 08wire, and that anybody could get me to shed a tear to the tune of any Metallica song (sorry metal fans but my musical compass points in a verrrrrry different direction hehe) is a fine testimony to your ability to touch viewers at a deep level.

    I don’t regard you as “gone” but merely “hibernating” for the time in the not too distant future when the left needs its super-video hero again…. cue superman soundtrack music and fade…. 😉

    Yeah, thanks guys…. but next time use Kiwi music, eh?

    Just not anything by Opshop, ’cause that’s Keys’ favourite NZ band. Funny that! They DO sound a lot like Coldplay and we know how much he LOVES them….. 😉

    Kudos for all your inspiring work.

    DeeDub: I heard his favourite NZ band was Brooke Fraser. And his favourite Elvis song is Rock around the Clock ….

    … by Bill Haley and the Comets.

    Unfortunately taste in music isn’t a legitimate ground for rejecting a politician from office.

    “Unfortunately taste in music isn’t a legitimate ground for rejecting a politician from office.”

    I don’t follow. In what sense is it not a legitimate ground?

    I enjoyed your videos, despite not sharing your desire for an LPG government. I also commend your gracious message to the National Party. It’s a shame others aren’t as gracious.
