As you may have guessed, this is pretty much friends only these days. I occasionally post publicly, but due to the actions of some, that is becoming increasingly rare. So, add me if you want to know whats going on in my life.
Ciao Cats!

Womens fest day one

Day one of Womensfest went pretty well, albeit not particularly smoothly. I don't mind being the sound guy(girl) at all, I just like to know, perhaps more than ten minutes before we start. A few gripes;

1. To the people who book a slot, then cancel at the last minute because we can't procure them thousands of dollars worth of equipment to make them sound ok (yeah glee club, thanks); dick fucking move. Learn to sing, or bring your own gear.

2. Using a mic ain't all that hard. Don't shout, Don't whisper, and we should be fine.

3. When asking for the sound guy(me) to play a track for your dance, it helps to know what track the song you want is.

Other than those problems, all went well. Man the cultural club kids are enthusiastic, it was AMAZING. Sorry for all the metal, didn't realize I was djing all week (and having to fill slots), and so only had my personal music on me. Tomorrow I will have my macbook with me, and will try and provide a more balanced mix (It is likely to still have some metal though).

In other FABULOUS news, the girl I was helping last week got her protection order, no problems, is already 100% better and more relaxed. She has a way to go, but can at least now start on the healing process without a fuckhead nutbar terrifying her. So yay, the courts did good!

As for the zombification; don't mention the bloody war. Just know that pretty soon I may loose my shit.

Will try and write about each day as it happens, but forgive me as I am hellishly busy and they may not be great write ups!

So you wanna wear a Thursdays in Black T?

How bout first you stop someone sexually assaulting your friend? Or barring that, at least don't tell everyone the story whilst laughing your arse off.
I find your hypocrisy very fucking hard to stomach.

March for Hate.

A few days ago I was wandering down queen street when I saw so many NZ flags I thought perhaps I had stumbled across a NF rally. Then I remembered it was the "march for democracy", a hate rally funded by Family First and Collin Craig. It's website (and no, I'm not linking to that fucking thing) claims that "The March is not organised by a political party or a religious group. It does not support any political party or religious view. It is being professionally organised by citizens for citizens."
This is a lie. It was not a march for democracy, it was a hate rally about the smacking law, with a few other nasty little things thrown in. Why is it that people using "family" in the political arena are often nasty narrow minded people with only one view of family.

Some points from the rally I feel the need to mention here. I am sorry for the poor quality of this, as it makes me so fucking angry that I find myself unable to write to my preferred standard.
They had children holding Family First and Act party signage. This is wrong for a few reasons. Family first is a nasty little party founded by a pedophile. I doubt children think smacking is right, and they were either bribed into doing it, not knowing what they were doing it, or feared the reaction if they refused. And having children advertising political parties is just wrong.
They blatantly lied. Claiming that 87% of the country voted for smacking is a lie. 87% of people who voted in the referendum voted for smacking. The number of people who bothered voting in said referendum was considerably less.
One woman speaking said she was ashamed to be Maori, and said other Maori people should be as well. She also claimed that the DPB encouraged loose morals, depravity and dysfunction. Also, we should have compulsory STD testing and ban divorce.
It was apparently the biggest march in 30 years (lie; I've been to bigger), and we should ban MMP. What this has to do with the smacking law and democracy I don't know. Perhaps we should have a dictatorship lead by family first?
The nutbar from The Sensible Sentencing Trust ("Hang em High"), spoke, talking about locking up drug addicts and throwing away the key. Because that will solve everything. Don't help them, don't look to the social problems that cause drug use and our stupidly high prison population. No, lets just lock up more poor sods.

And my favorite part of the day; getting kids to write their details down and send them in. Bribing them with stickers, clowns and balloons. All I can say is I am super glad I didn't have Hunter there. He loves balloons, and would of really wanted one. So he would of ended up showing support to a cause he knows nothing about. Hunter is the happiest kid around, people constantly remark on it. And that is because no one has ever even raised their voice to him, let alone hit him. And they hopefully never will. Or they will have quite a few people to answer to.

"I wanted to write about the moment when you can no longer hide from the truth. When your whole life breaks down. That’s the moment when you have to somehow choose what your life is going to be about."

Who knows what will happen, but I'm guessing not good things.
Disney buys marvel
Warren Ellis sums it up nicely.
I guess no one good will be writing "Disney" comics any more, which is a shame. If only DC would get its shit together and stop doing stupid events (prime punch anyone? (sorry, still not over that. That was the stupidest thing I have ever seen in a comic (and I've seen some stupid shit))), we would have superhero comics to read. Arrgh. Thinking about all the implications of this is horrible. What about things like Next Wave?
Anyway, that was my rant for the morning. Resume programing.

I am a optimist to the point of stupidity. As much as I see, as shit as I know humans are, I still believe that things will be ok, despite all evidence to the contrary. I believe that people will wake up, and that everything will work out.
Yes, I'm a fool.
