Let’s make NZ’s voice heard in September’s election. #NZVotes
Get Up Stand Up is a nonpartisan project aimed at inspiring those disengaged with politics to stand as one (Tūtahi) and vote.

All the awesome musicians in this song ask you to vote!

The stakes have never been higher. By voting you can make our collective voices heard and keep our democracy strong.

New Zealand's general election takes place on September 20 but anyone can vote at advance polling booths from September 3.

The voice of the younger generation is lost. 42% of 18-24 year olds didn’t vote in the last election. If this trend continues, then within a few years participation in our democracy will reach catastrophically low levels.

Let’s flip the script and get young people to turn out in record numbers.

Get up, stand up and be the change you wish to see in New Zealand!

Bob Marley’s influence on our nation cannot be underestimated. His one and only concert in New Zealand, at Auckland’s Western Springs in April 1979, left a lasting mark on a country still striving to define its cultural identity.

Bob inspired a feeling of hope in New Zealand that still resonates to this day.

After the Marley Family Trust blessed us with recording confirmation on Friday the 1st of August, by the following Wednesday (Jamaican Independence Day) we had 22 amazing NZ artists collaborating on this inspiring project.

"Get Up, Stand Up" was the last song Bob Marley ever performed on stage, on September 23, 1980 at the Stanley Theater, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Let’s keep his voice alive by getting up, standing up and making a positive
change for generations to come.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
