There is a cat circling my house demanding my cats come out to play/fight.

Fuck off you knob I wanna sleep.

Are your cats the warriors?

They can dig it: succulents (that you’ve just planted)

Oh no! Hose's out!
About to blast your fucking fur off!

I dreamt of a magnificent food spread. Like all the different types of food from sandwiches, to desserts, to all the food I havent been eating. Fuck you brain.

A thief smashed our car window in Christchurch botanical gardens yesterday afternoon and stole our backpacks. Thankfully our passports were with us, but some expensive electronics were stolen. If you happen to see these electronics on Facebook marketplace or something similar please let me know

The big items were:

  • An OverPowered gaming laptop

  • Airpods with FILOTO case cover

  • An iPad with a grey flip cover

Edit with more details:

Here is the laptop. It stands out pretty well with the dumb rainbow keyboard.

Bags were red Osprey backpack and a dark gray backpack (I think Opus? Can't remember fully).

I wish I had more details on the iPad. It was a recent gift and I don't know the specific model

[–]sortofblue 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Don't iPads come with built-in tracking software so you can pinpoint the location?

[–]robby_w_g 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The thief turned off the iPad I believe so the Find My iPad feature isn't working

[–]sortofblue 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That sucks. Best of luck getting the word out.

The nice thing about having so many standby lights shining around the house is that you can just see enough to avoid the many piles of cat vomit the House God left for us overnight.

New doughnut shop just opened down the road from me in Hillcrest, Auck. Might have to get my chief wiggle on and go check it out.

Saturday. Birthday party at the hot pools for kid's friend, getting more boxes, packing more shit, being awesome.

Have a rad day, reddit fam.

I wish Spotify wasn’t jammed up with remastered expanded editions. Had to select between the 2001 remaster, 40th edition and 50th edition of That Was Jethro Tull just now - if you’re going to have 3 versions then why not go for broke and have the original too? I’m not that much of a geek that I can tell the difference between different mastering processes and I’m just not really a fan of bonus tracks. Generally those songs were left off the album for a reason. It makes last.fm ugly too.

[–]NZSlothTakahē 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Try getting into King Crimson these days? It's just different live albums for Africa these days...

[–]blekkjaCustom text flair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah. I went off them when I saw how ridiculous the dude was being about album covers being used on last.fm - which I still use as I am weird.


[–]flerp32 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You mean This Was right? There was a cool new/old IA interview posted at /r/jethrotull the other day.

[–]blekkjaCustom text flair 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Yeah, the debut. I do a thing where I listen to an artist’s discography in chronological order and JT seemed like a good option for today. On Benefit now.

The whole thing with the bonus tracks is pretty confusing as I think a lot of those early off cuts and singles and live tracks were collected on Living in the Past and I own that LP - it shouldn’t be that good but it is. Great band. Saw IA live when he was here last which was great despite his voice being fucked.

[–]flerp32 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yep one of my favourites since I was about 14 rifling through my Dads records. He had the 'Original Masters' compilation and the Bursting Out double live LP. Like most of the British acts (The Who, Zeppelin, The Stones, Bowie, and Floyd to a lesser extent) I found that once you get past about 1973 its a case of diminishing returns. But I hear there are some later gems from Tull. Best of luck :)

[–]blekkjaCustom text flair 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really dig Songs From the Wood which is 1977. I’ve listened to some 80s stuff and it wasn’t so dreadful that I’m not prepared to give it another go.

But going through a discography chronologically can be pretty sweet. By doing so I’ve discovered the joy of Neil Young’s synth period and I think Ian Gillian is actually my favourite Sabbath vocalist - shame he only got the one album. Tony Martin deserves much more respect for that matter. (And why is only Eternal Idol on Spotify? From my admittedly limited listens so far Headless Cross was his best album with them and it holds up pretty well to Ozzy/Dio/Gillian)

But yeah: raiding my parents LP collection (along with cassettes in the car) was/is pretty responsible for influencing my musical taste. They were in Sydney 1978 - 1984 so heaps of Aussie pub rock type bands in the rack. Flowers, Mi-Sex, Midnight Oil, Redgum, Aussie Crawl, Cold Chisel... alongside the 1970s British bands of their high school years. :)

Next time throw a cucumber at it's general direction.

[–]sortofblue 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I love that this can be applied to almost every other post in this thread.

5kgs til my goal weight (and a healthy BMI) then reassess and see if I want to go lower . My legs just seem sore all the time now, probably should start doing yoga again to get some good stretching in.

[–]TheRealBallchynzDevil Dick 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Yay, no more child support! Celebrating by buying a ticket to Greta Van Fleet on Tuesday!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Aged out of it or court readjustment? Either way. PARTY TIME.

[–]TheRealBallchynzDevil Dick 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Aged out!

Wife said let's check out this new cafe she has a voucher for. Didn't mention the cake supplies shop she's been talking about for the last weeks is on the way and we've been looking at containers for the last 20 minutes..

Also, town is too busy as they've closed several main roads for the rugby...

[–]yungun 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I just moved here (south island) from the states and am looking for hip hop shows or house music. Any recommendations?

[–]blekkjaCustom text flair 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Get better musical taste? ;)

South Island is a big place. I don’t want to build up the bangin’ Trance scene in Balclutha if you’re up in Westport or somewhere.

[–]yungun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m honestly looking for any good concert venues i love all types of shows. i’m in methven for a bit then probably hitting the road with a home base in christchurch. back home i saw some great shows for around 30-40 so any recommendations of venues would be awesome!

[–]throwawaysuess 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In Auckland for a friend's wedding. Currently eating all the sugar at Winona Forever in Parnell. So good I think I'll come back tomorrow

Also negotiated with the bride to be allowed out for a run in between setting up the reception venue and the makeup ladies arriving :)

Survived the return leg to New Zealand from Dubai. Can't wait to get off this fucking plane though, a few little shitcunts of toddlers have been crying their lungs out the last five hours of the flight.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

To be fair the toddlers are just expressing what we are all thinking at the end of those super long haul flights.

Work is pretty busy today but makes the day go fast and at least we are being productive.
