New Zealand Election Prediction










National  48%
Labour   24%
Greens   11%
NZ/First   6.5%
Conserv    5%
Maori       2%
InterMana 1.5%
Act          1%
United     0.5%
Other      0.5

So a handy win for National, they
will go into coalition with another
party. Cunliffe will be fired as
Labour leader.

Kimdotcom will lose millions
failing at his goal.  Nicky Hager's
worth will be zero.

And all those from the standard and the
daily blog will wonder why they spent
so much time on the internet.

Who knows if I will be correct or not.

Time will tell.

Why Simon Sweetman is wrong on GhostTunes.













Simon Sweetman is a music reviewer
from New Zealand, he recently called
GhostTunes stupid and superfluous.

After looking up what Superfluous
meant, I have to say Simon Sweetman
is wrong.

This is not the Cola wars Simon, it's
not VHS versus Beta. Itunes doesnt
get to be the sole music provider of
downloads.

The people behind this, the people who
are taking charge, are the biggest people
in the music industry, and it's about the
music.

Garth Brooks is right, Itunes shouldn't get
to dictate, how his music is sold, and for
what price. Itunes shouldn't let people
pick apart, artists albums and only select
half the songs.

You wouldn't go into an art gallery and ask
to buy 90% or 60% or a person's work, a
person's creation.

Then there is the compensation, for the least
compensated people in the music business,
the writers, the people who create the lyrics,
the ones who are on the bottom of the Itunes
food chain.

This is who Garth is looking out for, just like
with his stance on used CD's. It's never been
about the money or the numbers, despite the
critics thinking otherwise.

GhostTunes is all about the music, they don't
sell watches or widgets, it's a place where
people can enjoy music for purely music
sake.

It's not stupid or superfluous.

Just something for the Simon and the doubters
to think about.

Garth Brooks Knows how to make an entrance.

He still has it, best live performer ever, hes a clip from
Chicago, the first city in his world tour, I didnt take this.


Labour Party Supports Hacking














Words fail me, that the once great Labour Party of
New Zealand can support the hacking of someones
private emails.

Their list MP candidates such as  Hamilton's Anjum Rahman have
taken such delight in retweeting  hacked emails and hacked
information from  Nicky Hagers book.

In the same breath these wannabe MP's show how
disingenuous they are by talking about integrity.

Well they're running  the most dirty vile campaign any
Labour party in New Zealand history has, and he
media is letting him.

Normally I love watching election campaigns, not
this one, it's everything I hate, disingenuous, hateful
and hypocritical.

Kinda sums up the current Labour Party.

New Zealand Knocked out













New Zealand made the top 16 of the Basketball world
cup.

We were knocked out by European Powerhouse
Lithuania.

Again, New Zealand punched well above it's weight
in this tournament, the last four world cups in a row
we have made the playoff stages.

With a very young team, the future is looking bright
for New Zealand Basketball.

Well done to them.

Garth Brooks People Loving People













Garth Brooks has nailed it, he has hit it out the ball
park.

This is what country music needs, this is what music needs.

A perfect song for Garth.  His voice is so pure, he still
has heart, as a life long fan, I cannot be prouder of
this song that Garth has done.

Well worth the wait of 14 years.

What else can I say. Everything written about this
song was right, it's not Bro Country, its Not Hick
Hop, its Pure Garth.

What more could a Garth Brooks fan want?

Hats off to him.

Great start to his comeback!

There are so many happy Garth fans in the world
right now with smiles on their faces.

Thank you Garth!


Garth Brooks Comeback Starts













Garth Brooks is officially back. His first single off
his new album due for released in November, will
be released in a few hours.

Then on Thursday (USA Time) he starts his world
tour.

Fans have waited 14 years for this. Will he recreate
the 90's? Will his music have the same heart and soul
and passion as it did in the 90s?

Will he totally dominate the music scene? Will his
live show have the same amount of fever pitched
craziness?

It's been a huge long wait for Garth fans, a decade
and a half, but now in a few hours it kicks off again.

Will it be worth the wait?

Time will tell.

New Zealand Gallant in Defeat



















The might of the USA defeated New Zealand
98-71 at the World Basketball Champs.

New Zealand can hold their heads high, and
take a lot of pride in the fact that they won the
third quarter 19-18, not many teams in History
can say they won a quarter against the USA.

We now need a miracle to make it to the
knockout stages, we need to wins and have
to rely on all other results going our way, and
then it will come down to points for and against.

We live in hope.
