Vinyl Burns Variety Hour

MEDIA RELEASE: For Immediate Release

Hair of the Dog Productions and Kiwi Comedy Ltd. presents:

Vinyl Burns Variety Hour

An intimate hour with superstar celebrity lady slayer, the Reverend Dr. Vinyl Burns.

"...the seamless magic of your very own host the loveable, unflappable, king of kiwi comedy; Vinyl Burns." - Idealog Magazine

An irresistible mashup of subtle self-deprecating character comedy, sold with unexpectedly slick circus skill, slapstick personality and high altitude rockstar finesse.

Vinyl Burns reveals the secret burden of celebrity, charisma and good looks, as he offers a peek into his sideshow past, his chaotic present and his glorious Rock'N'Roll future… all while, pedalling his delicious brand of 70's romance... for the ladies.

They broke the mould, THEN they made Vinyl Burns.

Features physical and verbal comedy, circus, live music, some adult language.

Kim Potter is a performer, musician, comedian, writer, presenter, MC and gadget nerd. Kim's comedy character and alter ego, Vinyl Burns is far more prolific than he is.

Vinyl has produced an album spawning five music videos, several web series covering poker, sleep, sex therapy, cooking, rock concerts, dramatic film, chocolate milk and water safety. Vinyl writes an irregular blog, and produces an equally erratic "Vinyl Speaks" podcast and his weekly 1am - 3am radio show on Wellington's radioactive.fm

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Scoop Review Of Books: Don’t Eat The Fish

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
