And a bit more....


Scoop has now initiated a dialogue with the dreamers. While it is against the rules for them to speak to those on the outside of their capsule in the street – they are online…..at urbandream@xtra.co.nz.

Scoop: What were you singing in the photo?

Dreamers: Absloute rubbish, but it doenst matter because no one can hear.

Scoop: Why do you wear kilts?

Dreamers:: At first we thought it was to be a mix between pacific culture the 'lava lava" or lap lap and the Scottish kilt, but then it evolved into kilts made from tea-towels which is suitably domestic, comfortable and a wee bit tattoo-ish

Scoop: Do you all have comfortable shoes?

Dreamers: Not bad...blundstone boots

(Watch this space for more domesticity…..continuing)
