FIGHTINGTALK - right-wing sneering

Lyndon Hood - "sporadic" blogger, Lower Hutt Wednesday, November 24, 2004

Now, Aaron. If you're not too busy quoting other bloggers without linking to them or being unelected or something, I'd like a word. I wouldn't normally be offended (and I certainly wouldn't be surprised) by a right-wing ideologue sneering at somebody who disagrees with him. Especially when said ideologue's name is written in such big letters at the top of their blog.

Hamish McKenzie - one-time editor, Dunedin Tuesday, November 23, 2004

In a shock result in the Ukrainian elections, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been catapulted into the Presidency on the back of a record voter turn-out.

The election result has come as a shock to the former Soviet Republic, not least because of the fact that Putin's name did not appear on the ballot. Early exit polls had liberal West-leaning contender Viktor Yushchenko leading a technocratic Kremlin pawn by the completely different name of Viktor Yunukoyvch by about 10%.

Tom Goulter - "Actor" - Christchurch Saturday, November 20, 2004

There's this cat named Daryl Mason. He does not, it's fair to say, like Skinny Puppy much. In fact, he dislikes Skinny Puppy so much, does Daryl, that he has made it his mission to eradicate them from the airwaves. (Daryl's task is made all the more herculean by the fact that Messrs. Puppy aren't really played by real radio stations, per se, and as such their airwave prescence is limited to the insidiously untrackable breeding ground for militants, revolutionaries and stoners that is college radio. DAN-dun-duuhhhh).

Lyndon Hood - self-dramaturg, Lower Hutt Friday, November 19, 2004

The following is a transcript of an interview conducted in my head during today's Morning Report. Lyndon Hood: Mr Hyde, you've just proved that it's possible for parties to kick elected MPs out of Parliament by expelling them. How do you feel? Rodney Hyde: Pleased as punch, thank you.
