We kiwis like to add a s to things… like tuna, well actually we don’t add a s to tuna but we do to Laneway the annual imported festival that originated in Melbourne, Australia… I call it laneways and I went on Monday to the Auckland event, here’s my patchy as fuck review.
First up the star of the show was the new location – Albert park worked fantastically well, the main stage and “lane” of booze, food, porta loos were on Princess Street which iw as initially dubious about but …

Baseline is back baby… or at least for this mix by English dude DJ Q.
This is way more energetic than most of what I listen to… and as such its loads of fun. Perfect fodder for the second week back at work when tired eyes and sadness is the norm.

Its been a good summer for sci fi and space themed movies for me… Arrival was jaw dropingly great… the latest star wars movie was fun, (I’ve given up on the numbering and naming conventions of the franchise, latest or new will suffice)… Hidden Figures is possibly one of the most heart warming and coolest movies I’ve watched that wasn’t cliched shite for ages… Passengers was decent albeit a creepy as fuck premise… I re-watched 10 Cloverfield Lane and I really like it – even the tacky ending… Spectral was a bit …

The fourth instalment of the Bob’s best movies from various Film Festival’s I attended is about to unspool here on da finga! With a mix of international award-winners, crowd favourites, and shocks, this year’s films feature a star-studded line up of cinematic treats that dive directly into Bob’s world of culture, humour, and tradition.
And people thought celebrating life thru death was confined to netflix.
Coldly entranced, rattling bones and itchy feet need a dancin’ treat from beneath 6 feet. Wildly entombed, my coffin wishes to hack me out of dirt layered lungs and bellow …
