HARD NEWS 12/02/03 - Everybody's Up!

Hi folks,

All the bloggers have blogged, so it's time for another post. Chad has been talking to Linda Clark and I've been listening to her. Rob's back, Damon's going away, Jolisa's dumpster-diving in the Big Apple and Debra has teenage sons.


Cheers, RB

Russell Brown's Hard News

I know what it's like trying to manage a radio interview: one eye on the clock, the other on your questions, trying to balance interrogation with elicitation. And then there's always someone emailing to tell you what you ought to have done and said...,

Now playing in the Muse Lounge

After successful careers helming a late night news programme that was cancelled and a magazine that closed, Linda Clark has adopted radio and a sexy mom image: her name never appears in print without mention of her twins, of which she has two. I kind of like her, actually. She interviewed me this morning about - well, ostensibly about the book (which I'm "plugging", she said), but basically about myself. "We know so little about ...,

Rob O'Neill live in Sydney

I flew in to sunny Auckland on Friday and immediately and unexpectedly got embroiled in a stag night around the viaduct. All aged 30+ as far as I could see, we were playing drinking golf, a game in which 18 nominated drinks each get a par rating. You keep track of how many gulps you take at each to score...,

Damian Christie - Cracker With Attitude

Just a quick note to let y'all know that I'm off on a travel writing junket for a couple of weeks in the Whitsunday Islands. I mention this by way of giving myself a valid excuse for being bottom of the posting list for the next fortnight, rather than in a lauding-it-over way...,

Jolisa Gracewood in NYC

You find some pretty cool things in the trash in a city this size. I'm always on the lookout for discarded goodies, and have scored some fabulous free stuff - chairs, baskets, house-plants. But this was different: more than a trash treasure, it was a perfect metaphor for how things are right now, just sitting there, leaning up against a pile of garbage bags. I would have pounced on it, had I not been in ...,

What?! You spent ALL of your savings on a pair of digital maraccas?! |Feb 06, 2003 17:09
Debra Daley's astral plane

Sunday afternoon and I am alone in the world. That is because my son has been on DDR Freak for so long now that people have stopped trying to call me. I can only be contacted telepathically. My phone is always engaged. Engaged because of stepmania , engaged because of benamistyle . But that's OK, because I understand obsession, or "focus" as I like to call it when ...,
