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. Treetop 1

    Saturday 28 April at 9.30 pm on Maori TV, Goodbye Bafana. Think it is a two hour movie and not a doco. Goodbye Bafana is based on Nelson Mandela’s guard of twenty years.

    • Uturn 1.1

      Yeah definitely a movie, saw it earlier this year. More about James Gregory and the things that made him what he was (Gregory played by Ralph Fiennes), rather than Nelson Mandela – whose role is somewhat background only. Worth watching.

  2. Well not much this weekend but next weekend techno legend Derrick May is playing a 4 hours set in Wellington. Looking forward to it

    • Rupert the Beer 2.1

      I thought techno died with the last National government… 😛

      • I have it on good authority Helen Clark liked Jeff Mills and was on friendly terms with Carl Cox

        But techno goes strong – just not in NZ damnit.

        • Te Reo Putake

          Yep, NZ would be the mecca for techno if HC was still in charge. Sadly, though, under John ‘Coldplay’ Key everything’s gone Pete Tong!

          • TheContrarian

            Though I heard Gerry Brownlie banging some early Drumcode records

          • Rosie

            Lol, “It’s all gone, Pete Tong”.

            • Pascal's bookie


              well remember the look on certain people’s faces when they saw the list of gear that ‘Mr Mills’, as the email had it, required for his gig in wellington some years back. There was much scrambling to comply.

              The email was fairly insistent, made mention that Mills wouldn’t compromise his set to account for the gear, so if the gear wasn’t right, he’d either not play, or any suboptimal gear provided might not last the set.

              Legend but.

    The march should be a bit of fun. It will be interesting to see how many turn up.

    If this is too political please delete.

    I am having a fabulous time making brick paths in a kind of herringbone pattern right around the house and the garden. Making the place a bit more impervious to the Titirangi winter before it really sets in. Nothing like grunting with bricks and cement to make you forget about work.

  5. Day at Hamilton Zoo on Friday .Wonderfull conservation Zoo. witnessed the wailing of the Chims over a dead member, Unbelievable ritual over the dead body placed back by staff for this closure to take place once again unbelievable . Sunday LEC meeting Tokoroa.

  6. Hateatea 6

    I went to an interesting talk by Harry Evison on Walter Mantell and racism in NZ at the Ōtautahi WEA last night, chill out day today, back to work tomorrow night. A good weekend
