Hey!  How’s it going?

Somebody pranged a ferry in Auckland, lowering the count of reliable public transport options to -1. That’s not all for Auckland though – fruit flies are amok in Grey Lynn and we’re all going to die.

In other, more serious news, the protest against the inclusion of uniformed police and corrections officers in Auckland’s Pride Parade resulted in the painful injury of one of the protestors.  How does the mainstream mentally process discord in marginalised communities we often view as a bloc?

Hey!

The first rule of Ya Ya Club is talk lots about Ya Ya Club.  State Housing is going under the hammer, thereby twinning the worst aspects of asset sales and subprime housing.  Also; Fast Food News!  And Anti Fast Food News as Jaime Oliver seems set to open a restaurant in Wellington – what does the internet think of that?

Hi,

Like a stepped on hose over the holidays, all the politics news came out in a rush today.  Russel rolls himself as Greens co-leader, Sabin goes a biff too far and resigns in order to spend more time resembling a jug.  Eleanor Catton is mostly correct, and roundly chastised for it.

Hi,

Finally, some New Zealand politics news resurfaces after the holiday drought (that Dim Post entry I mention is here).  Also; the fallout from the Paris Charlie Hebdo atrocity.  And in MBC land; marijuana liberalisation knows no bounds, and there’s a fridge mystery in Christchurch.

Rather than record two episodes this sitting we just ran through.  If you would like to split this into two episodes yourself there is a natural break right on the 1hr mark before we start the MBCs.  Let your preferences and your stamina be your guide.  Thank you.

Hey, Stephanie’s here!  Her stuff is at Boots Theory or OnTheLeftNZ.com.

Today we’re talking flippant topics: McDonalds fess up to the distance between the burger in the photo and the burger in the box they just hiffed ya – what does the community think?  Also Dan updates us vis a vis his mattress.

And in more serious matters: How is this Andrew Little guy going?  And how have we come to live in a New Zealand where poor mothers queue for food in the middle of the night?
