Aces name power house XII for BK Super Smash opener

Burger King Super Smash has arrived and the Auckland Aces have named a power packed XII for their first match against the Central Stags at Eden Park Outer Oval tomorrow afternoon.

Two new faces join the squad for the T20 competition and would make their Aces debut if selected to play the Stags.

Surrey import Sam Curran flew in late last week and has been meeting his new team mates and familiarising himself with Eden Park Outer Oval.

“Sam has settled in well to the team environment and has been looking dangerous in the nets in the short time we have seen him. He could well be one to watch this Burger King Super Smash,” Auckland Aces Captain Craig Cachopa says.

Meanwhile, Cornwall Cricket Club all-rounder Teja Nidamanuru has returned to Auckland to play his club cricket this season after a stint in Dunedin.

Aces Coach Mark O’Donnell says the team have been sharp in all areas since the white ball campaigns have started.

“We’ve gone two from three in the mini Ford Trophy section before Christmas which is pleasing. Now it’s the Super Smash and all the excitement that comes with it. We will be looking for a clinical start to our campaign, hit the ground running against the Stags tomorrow afternoon,” O’Donnell says.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
