Living the invasion with Tze Ming Mok

[In a cheesy cross-over gimmick designed to bolster our mutual readerships, I will be guest blogging on Yellow Peril this week. At this rate, it won't be long before we end up with a "Best of" blog...,

David Slack on his own account

Cast your mind back a few seasons in the Sopranos. Did you see the episode where the New York boss remarks to Tony, "A Don never wears shorts." You may not be surprised to learn that this gem was slipped into the script on the advice of People Who Know...,

The Breeder Bounty | Aug 19, 2005 08:57
Russell Brown's Hard News

Russell Brown's Hard News

Morning Report devoted a remarkable amount of time today to discussion of Labour's and National's first official campaign ads for television. Everyone seems to think National's Taxathon ad is done in the style of South Park...,"

Che Tibby's view from Wellington

Yup, I'd better come clean. The thesis isn't actually finished and handed in. All the hard yards are done, and I'm kind of kicking back making small structural and wording changes as they are indicated...,

Revenge of the Nerds | Aug 17, 2005 12:43
Keith Ng on the election trail

With the National Party finally prepared to unleash the torrent of fiscal wonk that they've been baiting us with for so long, we're about to enter the geekiest two weeks of the election campaign. This week, I talk to Michael Cullen about what really happened with the "Chewing Gum Budget",...,
