James Gandolfini has died.
He died of a suspected heart attack in Italy.
He will be best known for his amazing work
on the Sopranos.
He was only 51 years old.
I loved that show, it became an instant classic,
and has now gone down in history as one of the
best dramas ever.
What can one say?
Thoughts go out to his family and friends.
May he rest in peace.

Is TVNZ's weather forecaster Jim Hickey, corrupt
Yes, places are getting snow tonight, inland places,
downsouth are feeling the chill.
But for the past few days, Jim Hickey has virtually
been promising that the city of Christchurch will
get a once in a life time snow event, an event that will
make the 1992 snowfall look like nothing.
This sent Christchurch people into a panic, ripping
stuff off shelves at supermarkets, buying things they
dont really need, stocking up on goods, like they were
going to be snowbound for months.
Well in reality, Christchurch city are just going to get
a few flakes, on top of the port hills might get a dusting,
but down at sea level, well there might be nothing at
This is disgraceful reporting by Jim Hickey, what
the hell was he and TVNZ thinking.
The good people of Christchurch has gone thru
enough with the Earthquakes and aftershocks, and
now we have Jim Hickey sending people into a
panic thinking the mother of all storms is heading
What is Jim's motivation? Does he own shares
in foodstuff's? Does he own shares in other
supermarket chains? Or is he just incompetent?
Time will tell.

(This post has been written in response to an
item in the nzherald and a piece written at the
hand mirror, about the vile homophobic comments yelled
out at the new zealand versus France Rugby Union
One of the reasons I dont follow Rugby Union, is because
of people like that. The last game I went to was in 1988.
What type of person in the year 2013 will still yell out
homophobic slurs? Where the heck was the security to remove
You know something else, it's not a small
minority of rugby fans either, that do this.
I myself have been called the F word for not following
Rugby Union, although it must be a million times
more degrading for a gay person to be called this.
It's the mindset of a lot of rugby union fans, that they
think they can get away with the abuse they give
people, because the sport is in such a position o
f power,that no one will ever dare question what a
rugby union player or supporter has to say.
I remember about a year ago, walking thru a park
and a game was going on, there was this guy in his
60's, standing next to his daughter and his grandkids,
watching his grandson play, I stopped, because I heard
him yelling out over and over again,
"Your playing like a bunch of girls, your playing
like girly forwards, your a bunch of wimpy girls"
I said to him in the loudest voice I could muster.. "MY
niece has a poster of the USA soccer player Mia Hamm
in her room,it has the words, WHEN YOU SAY I PLAY
LIKE A GIRL, I TAKE IT AS A COMPLIMENT"
The other fans on the sideline told me to F off.
To me that sums up a lot of Rugby fans in New Zealand.
Until you get someone like Dan Carter or other
All Blacks going on tv, and talking about how
disgusted he is with homophobic remarks at
rugby games, it will always continue.
But since a few years back, the NZRFU, didnt
wanted a poster of two gay men in the changing rooms
in their rugby uniforms, it's not going to stop.
As the poster at the hand mirror pointed out, it
wont stop until one of the New Zealand team,
takes a stand of courage.
Unfortunately courage is something they lack.
They dont want to upset their homophobic base.

Okay at the end of the first quarter during Nelson's
home basketball matches, they get someone from the
crowd to take shots to win cash.
The person has 30 seconds in total.
If they get a shot from under the hoop they win five dollars.
They then get to go to the foul line, if they get that they win 50.
If they get that, they go to the three point line to win 500.
If they get that, they can go to half court and try to win 5000.
As I said the person has 30 seconds.
They have volunteer, to give the ball back to the person shooting.
Now you would think, these volunteers would be quick about it, but
this volunteer, always takes his time and just casually rolls the ball
back to the person, he doesn't rush at all, in tonight's game,
the other volunteer got the ball and instead of giving
it back to the shooter, she just handed it to
the volunteer who just passed it back slowly.
Now I wouldn't be beeped off if I was
shooting, if they were told to do this
by the company who sponsors this,
because they have to make it hard
This is not the case though, these volunteers
are just dumb asses who
aren't thinking or couldn't care less.
I compare it to a game I saw in the states, same concept, but the
volunteers were cheering the person on trying their hardest to get
the ball back to the shooter.
Is this a laid nack Kiwi thing, did they think it was funny that they did
They seem very disinterested.
Here's hoping this guy will stop being full of himself, and do
the right thing and get into it.
Time will tell.

Thoughts and wishes to the family of the young rugby union
player, who got assaulted after rugby union practise, and then
died in hospital.
But why oh why, when TVNZ did a report on this, and started
to talk about violence on the sports field, did they show footage
of a Rugby League game?
What were they trying to say, that it was the sport of Rugby League
If a kid died after a Rugby league practice would TVNZ show footage
of a Rugby Union game?
Of course not.
It was disgusting and vile Journalism tonight, to do a serious
and tragic story on a boy's death and yet still have to have a
pot shot at the sport of Rugby League?
Im speechless, Im without speech.
Shame on TVNZ.

Congrats to John Minto for being
awarded the Lifetime Achievement
Award at the Hypocrite's society, annual meeting.
Here is a so called advocator of free
speech who has spent most the last
15 years saying the most hateful,
vile racist statements against Americans,
Israeli's and anyone who is right of his
ideology (which makes up 99.98% of
New Zealand's population.)
Whenever he spurts out his hate
the public says "That is disgusting, but
we in a free society where people can
say disgusting things"
Yet John Minto has the audacity to
go to the Human rights commissioner
to stop someone else from having their
free speech. (Al Neisbet's cartoon)
This shows the self righteousness of
John Minto and I would go as far as to say
sinister piece of trash he is.
But he sums up the far left, who always
seem to chant, "Free Speech" but are
the first to start up a letter campaign if
someone says something they don't like.
John Minto is their poster child, because
he lives for behavior like this, without a
doubt he is New Zealand's biggest hypocrite,
but because he has no self awareness, he
continues this repulsive attitude of free speech
only belongs to him.
Mr John Minto has earned his lifetime achievement
award from the Hypocrites society, he won't learn
from it though.
That's the sad thing about him.
It's all about him.

If Oxford dictionary had pictures, under Nepotism,
there would be a huge picture of Will Smith.
He not only defines the word, he lives it, and takes
it to another level.
Don't get me wrong, I use to love Will Smith, I use
to sing along to "I can beat Mike Tyson" and the
classic, "The girlie had a mustache" I would
occasionally watch Fresh Prince, it was a harmless
wee comedy, but lately he has been showing
something that is a cross between Nepotism and
Will Smith was the executive producer for the
remake of The Karate Kid, and decided the
best actor for a major motion picture would
of course be his kid.
He also decided it would be a great to hire
the top music producers on the planet, to
make a multi million dollar music video,
starring his daughter Willow.
His latest effort is the grotesque, "After
Earth" starring him and his son as the
movie's hero. It's not the fact, that this
movie sucks, it's not the fact that his
kid, well just can't act, it's the Nepotism
and white privilege involved.
The nepotism is thru the roof here, every
award show, every movie premier, yeah are
his kids, talking to the camera, like they have
had 40 years careers and what they have to
say, is of vital importance.
To produce a movie and to favor your
own kids over other kid actors will ruin
their careers, if that is the path they want
Perhaps Will Smith can take a lesson from
Garth Brooks, who recently told media, that
only one of his daughters want a career in
the music industry, and the way he has helped
her, he hasn't called his producer friends, or
use his influence, he just bought her a guitar
and told her to stay away from reality shows,
and make it on her own talent.
Something for Will Smith to think about.

It's not easy being Green.
But the Greens have made it a lot harder for themselves,
the past few weeks, by screwing the NewZealand
public, by playing hate politics.
I guess their little advisors, told them they have to
come off as being aggressive to appeal to middle
Unfortunately, Russel Norman, just can't sell it.
His behavior the past few months has been quite
repugnant, trying to stop anything that will earn
kiwis money by sabotaging any policy the
Government puts in place.
Here's his problem, people do want to invest and
get ahead, in these hard times, any amount of
extra money kiws can put in their pockets will
But that is not in Russel Norman's best interest's,
he needs us to be poor, he needs us to hate the
neighbor with the bigger house and the bigger pool,
because according to the Green's, they're just rich pricks,
but he cares about us!
Well New Zealander's aren't falling for your lies, we
don't hate the investors, we congratulate them for having
the courage to take risks.
Now that your plan of attack didn't work for you, you
have attacked Prime Minister Key personally, which is
a fatal mistake, it never works.
The Greens at the moment are below 10% in the
latest polls, in polls leading up to past elections, they've
been polling 13-15% to only end up with around 10%.
If this trend continues, The Greens might only end up
with 6-7% in the 2014 election.
Perhaps then, the Greens will learn their lesson, and
move back to being an environmental party and not
a radical left party who hates any form of progress.
Like I said, it's not easy being Green, they have a
choice, will they take the right one?
I anit holding my breath.
