The news, eh? What is it? Where do I find it? What do I do once I’ve caught it? Is it contagious? Already 2011 has been awful full of news, and with human-produced news levels at their highest point in recorded history, what can be done to prepare for the eventual catastrophe which everyone is certain is coming from somewhere soon?

Nobody knows exactly when we will next get to vote. It could be thrust upon us at a moment’s notice. You could be at home, you could be at work. You could be out, it might be dark, you could well be drunk. So it pays to think CONSTANTLY about how you’d vote or else you might get caught out and end up voting for the wrong people in a kind of panic. In this episode we moan about there basically being nobody to vote for, identify who we think are the “Most Egonomist MPs”, Dan outlines precisely what it will take to get him to vote Green, and Dave reminisces about ripping off his shoddy neighbor‘s unsecured wireless internet.
Quick! Everybody change partners! Switch it up! – Sarah Palin comes out in support of North Korea and David Cunliffe comes out in supports of not-quite-but-kind-of-privatisation-but-not-really. It’s like that movie, you know?
PRIORITY MAIL! OPEN IMMEDIATELY! WIN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS! TURN INTO A DOUCHEBAG! HANG AROUND IN WATERFRONT BARS! BECOME PRIME MINSTER!
BONUS: Hear us talk nicely about Pansy Wong two seconds before she was forced to resign. Dan’s been singing the praises of Brownlee all week since this.
As mentioned in episode 84, here are a couple of things to see and do:
First up: esteemed Egonomist guest Jackson James Wood’s movember page. Movember is a thing that is good. Look at the other gash you spent your money on this week and then think about donating, idiot. The Egonomist fully endorse JJW’s mo campaign as a form of vacarious charity because we’re doing stuff-all. I’m also fairly certain that his level of fund raising this month will directly inform his position on next year’s Green list. Since appearing on the Egonomist, Jackson has announced that he will be the Green candidate in New Plymouth in the 2011 general election. What have -you- done?
Secondly; there are some people you shouldn’t say “nobody has a honey badger tattoo” to. Felix is one of those people. After listening to episode 79 in which we lauded the honey badger’s badassery, he went and matched that badassery by tattooing himself with an image of the fiendish creature. Proving us wrong and himself awesome in one fell swoop:
Mustaches and tattoos – do we have the manliest listeners or WHAT!?
Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins. What does that have to do with anything? Eh?!
Darren Watson, Wellington blues icon and all ’round nice fella, swung by for a chat. DW’s never been afraid of speaking his mind on political issues, as anyone who’s seen him alter the lyrics mid-performance of blues numbers to ridicule National supporters can attest.
Darren’s new album “Saint Hilda’s Faithless Boy” is out November 1st on Red Rocks Records. Release parties are in Wellington on the 21st October at Ruby Lounge and in Auckland on the 23rd of October at Juice Bar.
Join us as we try to set Dan up with Deborah Hill Cone. Have a look at her sterling wit here, just before John Campbell has to actively resist punching her in the face.
But mainly we take a look at Andrew Little – can he be Labour’s Don Brash In A Good Way Don’t Get Me Wrong Here? Can he save us from the horrors we so accurately predict (will be Bill English’s fault)? It’s all a bit of a downer – BUT! Comedic relief is here in the form of a brand new ACT MP! Hurray!
