In January of 2014, this blog will be six years old.

I have been blogging for six years, and the time has
come to stop this blog.

I started this blog for several reasons. I saw Hypocrisy
in the New Zealand sports media, I saw Hypocrisy by
several prominent kiwi politicians and kiwis involved in
the political scene.

I also kept reading factually incorrect statements by
 certain bloggers on the subject of music/sport, so
I thought perhaps I can get my two cents out there.

Well after six years, not a lot of people wanted my
two cents, at it's peak this blog may of gotten 100-
150 hits a day.  Most times it  averaged around 40-
50 hits a day.

Anyway for those that came, thanks for reading.
If your a kiwi I hope you finally got to read
something about the sports of Basketball and
American Football that you didn't know, and I
hope you enjoyed reading that perhaps the stats
our media gives you about a certain sport, aren't exactly

If your an American reader or outside of the USA, I
hope you like the reviews of Modern Family and such,
and I hope you enjoying reading a blog from outside the
States, that didn't knock the States.

If your a Garth Brooks fan, I hope you enjoyed the
posts about Garth Brooks, and man oh man, it's
2014 in three weeks, it was a long wait, but he's back!!

To the NZ Feminist community,  I hope you enjoyed
the mansplaining or whatever its called, and I hope you took
something from the blog.

To Brendan Telfer, you still haven't answered my question
after six years, and I still think its a crime, what you do to

 For me, the  battle in New Zealand is lost,
we still have a media who has brainwashed the public,
not only by the popularity of our country's national sport,
but even in the year  2013, they still have to bag other sports.

We have so so many great sports people,
who will not get any recognition because of their sports,
we have many Kiwi Girls playing Basketball in the USA
at High School Level and College Level, who with publicity and
funding could achieve at the highest level.

We have a ton of Female Footballers doing the same.

But because of the incestuous relationships that
NZ Sporting Journalists  have with out three big
codes, our female Basketballers and  Footballers,
will never get the opportunity to shine
on the world stage, no publicity means little or no  funding
(Womans Basketball gets nothing) and that is a disgrace, and that is Brendan Telfer's
legacy to the world of sport.

To the extreme NZ Politicians, not everything is the fault
of the USA.

To New Zealanders, not everything has to be about Rugby.

(Update: 2017: When you see Blogger such as Emily Writes
becoming successful, it blows my mind, if the media saw
her previous blog, they may not be so kind in their words
to ger)

But anyway, have to end on a positive.

If ya a fan of the Arizona Cardinals, The NZ Warriors, The
Kiwis, The Tall Blacks, If you love politicians that are centered
and not ideologists, if your Female and you want to play
Basketball or Football, if you Love Garth Brooks and
country music and proud of it. If your a fan of Brenna
Stewart  If your a fan of Ricky Gervais, Gordon Ramsay,
Calvin and Hobbes, The Office (both versions) If you love
 Obama, If you love MASH and SEINFELD and
 think BREAKING BAD is the greatest Drama ever,
if you love the USA, if you love Kiwis and New Zealand
 Beaches, if you love the NZ Breakers, if you love
 Froyo's, Dave and Busters, Friendlys, if you love
Vegas, UCONN, Nelson and CHCH (stay Strong)....
if you love HOVERBOARDS (IT WILL SOON BE 2015)

If you love all this, give yourself a pat on the back and don't
EVER feel the need to explain why you like these things, just
enjoy them, enjoy your passions, and most of important have

Because that is what its all about.

Anonymous Comments

You would think that I welcome comments
to this blog, which will be six years old
in 2014, I mean I don't get a lot of comments,
a handful here and there.

But the one thing that irks me, is people who
have to comment under "Anonymous"

I find it's always people who write the negative
comments who do this, I have no idea, why they
would choose to comment like this.

I have known of bloggers themselves for various
reasons who have blogged, "Anonymous" it would appear
these bloggers are somewhat Narcissist, they believe
they are superior and no one should be allowed to
know their name, despite calling up other people
on their blogs, and giving out their life story on twitter.

But to go to a blog and post in the comment
section under  "Anonymous" comes across
as trolling and somewhat cowardice.

So if you choose to leave a comment, feel welcome,
you can use a fake name if you like , and if you
want to post as "Anonymous" then that is your choice,
it's just that your comments don't mean as much when
you do this.

Too harsh?

Time will tell.

(Update2017:  Time has tell,  Emily Writes has now became famous,
the internet has no hope)

Garth Brooks Announces 2014 World Tour

Garth Brooks has announced he is coming out of
retirement for a world tour in 2014.

He said the tour will be a three year tour.

This is what Garth fans have been hoping for, ever
since he announced his retirement in December 1999.

Garth has been true to his word, he always said he
wouldn't tour until his youngest daughter has left home
to go to college.

Now that day has come.

The music world will see what they have been missing,
for the past 14 years.

Sure there has been the occasional weekend
 since 2010 where he has performed his one
 man show at the Wynn and a boxset or two, but
 again he has been total honest for the
past 14 years and stuck to his guns.

Now the time has come, will Garth Brooks 2014 be as
big as Garth Brooks of the 1990's, judging by  the reaction
today on social media, there is a good chance.

With a new tour, comes a new album, IMHO Garth
Brooks will show the music world, that his music
along with him as a person, has heart soul and integrity.

It's been a long long wait for us Garth Brooks fans, and now
the time has come.

His Friends in Low Places are all waiting in anticipation, believe
me, the wait will be worth it.

Roll on 2014.

Breaking Bad Finale

Greatest TV show in History.

Greatest Finale in History.

Greatest Acting in History.

Greatest Directing in History.

The list goes on and on and on.

To everybody involved with Breaking Bad,
you gave me  the greatest television experience
I have had in my life.

Thanks, Bitches.

He's Back

If there was any doubt that Garth Brooks could still
be a major player in the music business when he comes
out of retirement in 2014, it was laid to rest.

His last show at the Wynn, won the Friday night ratings,
he double the ratings of Lady Gaga.

He showed his funny side, he showed his voice, he showed
his love and respect for the music and those that came
before him.

For 14 years, music has been without Garth Brooks.

He has now returned, bigger and better than ever.

Roll on 2014.

I cannot wait.
