Garth Brooks Supports March for our Lives and Emma Gonzalez

On Garth's Studio G today, he got political.

He mentioned  March for our Lives and had a
special message for Emma Gonzalez, he told
her not to listen to the haters, and gave her a
special message, he sang a verse from a song
he hadn't recorded before and told her...

To matter then, it must matter now.

A wonderful message to a wonderful young lady.

Dana Johannsen 2018's version of 1978's Brendan Telfer

Meet 2018's version of Brendan Telfer, her name
is Dana Johannsen, she used to be nzherald's main
sports reporter she is now with Fairfax's  stuff's  website.

If you would like to compare her to any other Journo, Brendan
Telfer would be the one, like Brendan Telfer she has
a history of lying about certain sports, and totally
ignoring others.

Bredan Telfer was the Journo who loved to tell the
NZ public that Netball was this global sport. He
loved to mock League calling the league world
cup worthless, while cheering on any world cup
victory in Netball, he would state Rugby is
huge, league is nothing, yet wouldn't make the
true comparison  with Netball and Basketball.

Today stuff's, Dana Johannsen did this piece
on how Netball which has long been the number
one sport for girls is under threat from other sports,
Rugby in particular, but she mentioned other sports as well are
challenging Netball in New Zealand for girls.

Yet, she didnt mention the main threat and that is
Basketball, the reason, because Dana and the NZ
sporting Journalistic community know full well,
the threat Basketball is to Netball for girls.

They know the numbers, they know the opportunities
Basketball can give young girls over Netball, but they
stay quiet, they know Basketball is truly a Global sport
and Netball is quite insignificant on the Global scene,
but they lie and say otherwise.

This is disgusting, in the year 2018,  the NZ media still
act like small town NZ in 1978.

There is a sport in New Zealand that has totally been ignored
by our media and that is woman's Basketball, the fact that
the reason they ignore it, is because they think it will hurt
Netball is quite repugnant.

We have so many Woman Basketballers on the world stage,
that you never ever hear about, the media will make sure that
will continue.

Stories like today's piece from Dana Johannsen are so disingenuous
it's a crime against Journalism.  She's wanting the public to know
yes there are  sporting opportunities for girls, but  Basketball isn't one of them.

In 2018 I expect more from our media, this isnt the days of Brendan Telfer,
where Basketball didn't exist in the public mindset, its 2018, how about
the media doing their job and telling our young girls, we have a great
game in this country, its Global and it's called Basketball.

Emily Writes Fans Quiet on her Doxxing

Can you blame,  Emily Writes  the editor of the Parents
section of the Blog "The Spin Off"  for her supporters being
so naive and so hypocritical when it comes to  Doxxing.

Emily Writes has a rabid bunch of supporters,  when she
had a blog that didn't take off, they were still supporting her,
when she was on Twitter, hurling out all sort of abuse to
people who disagreed with her, telling them to fuck off,
they still support her.  When she went after businesses
because she thought they did her wrong, her supporters
went after them.

When her third blog took off, with the help of chat bots
and  because she was telling people to fuck off, they
still supported her.

Now as a published writer with a multi book deal with
Penguin, a editor at a blog,  a prolific user of social
media,  friends in high places in the NewZealand
media, her supporters still 100% support her when
she goes after members of the public by creating hashtags
with their names.

When Emily Writes was complaining about how people,
copy and paste parts of her blog without permission,
they supported her 100%, despite her doing the same thing.
which she  also did to me,  and when I bought it  to her attention,
Emily Writes just said "Its the internet don't be a dickhead"

Yet again 100% support from her followers.

What I can't get over though, is lately her followers have
being crying foul, jumping to her defense because someone
said they might dox her (whether this is true or not is another
story), well that is so hypocritical of her supporters.

When Emily Writes did a piece on Tarzan, someone had
sent a link to her blog, to a speech that Emma Watson did
at the UN, their point was that Emma's speech did more
for Feminism than Emily writes, bit on Tarzan's penis.

In response,  Emily Writes, took a screen shot from her
moderation page, that included  the  guy's  Full Name,
Email Address and IP and put it on twitter.

Emily Writes followers applauded her, thought it was
brilliant, and the guy ended up getting hate mail and
abuse from them.

These same followers are now,  saying how bad it is
that Emily Writes may get doxxed.

Well you know what, I have no sympathy for her, this
is a person who for a decade has doxxed and abused
people on line while making themselves out to be a

My question is,  should Emily take responsibility for
the hate her followers send out to people who may
disagree with her?

I say yes,  just like the morons at Faux News or
the followers of hate radio jock Alex Jones, she
has to look at herself, by Emily writing what she
does, she has created a toxic environment, all
the while playing the victim.

It's the height of Hypocrisy.

I'm guessing in five years she will be the most
famous broadcaster in New Zealand.

Time will tell.

Bad Coaching

Please tell me if you're a coach and you only have a
group of players for a few years,  and you know a couple
of players will soon be leaving your programe, would you
make sure those two players  take 80-85% of the entire
team shots, and not give any bench players court time.

Would you also take a player who shoots  90% from the
free throw line,  make them change their shooting style,
and turn them into a  20% foul shooter, while letting
the couple of other  players shoot the same style.

Would you take a 50%  three point shooter, change their
style and turn them into a  15%  three point shooter, while
letting the couple of other players shoot the same style.

If your team cant make the playoffs, and your ahead by
30 in a game that means nothing, will you still keep the
couple of players on, without giving the bench a run.

Would you tell players, next year is when we will give you
court time, so stay with our progamme and next year comes,
and you give them no court time.

When coaches are more worried about their record,  or have
favourite players who have a shocking FG percentage, teams

And it doesn't really come down to a couple of greedy players,
it comes down to....

Emma Gonzalez is a hero.  She didnt decide to
hide in her shell, after the horrific shooting.

She has now decided to take on the most powerful
people and organizations in the world.

Fox News,  NRA and President Trump, she will
ripped apart by the  conservative media, their
will be hateful messages posted about her on
social media, she will even receive death threats.

But she will stand tall while adults will do  nothing,
she will lead change, she will inspire millions, in
the hope that Assault weapons will be no more.

Adults have a choice, we are either with this teenage
hero, or against her.

If enough are with her, change will happen.

Will it happen?

Time will tell.

Garth Brooks Secret Plan for 2018

Garth Brooks has been hinting in the past few weeks,
about what his secret plan for 2018 is.

Hes been dropping little hints, like saying he's never
done this before and hes never done this at this pace

Well I've figured it out, I can almost guarantee it.

Garth has always been a fan of Queen, decades ago
they did  26 Stadium shows in six weeks in the USA.

This is what Garth Brooks is going to so.

Summer of 2018 in the USA, Garth Brooks is going to
do 26 Stadium shows in just weeks.

He will make the announcement in May.

I have never been more sure of anything in my life.

Its going to be real and its going to be magnificent.

Well done to Garth for taking this on.

Am i right?

Time will tell.

An Open Letter to all Kiwis

For the love of God Kiwis, stop wanting to Ban things.
Stop wanting to Ban people.  Stop freakin bitching
about the stuff in society you don't like.

Stop being easily offended,  stop campaigns  to get
people fired.  Are we still this precious as a nation,
that a moronic white privileged jerk off like Robert
Jones can make a dumb ass racist joke, and our
reaction is not just to get the publication that printed it,
to drop the article, but to fuckin make it ILLEGAL for
those comments to be published.

Film maker Renae Maihi who's had countless films
funded by NZ on Air, now wants a complete ban on
the comments made by Jones, she wants it to be
illegal to publish such comments.

How a film maker can be so against free speech, can
be so narcissistic and self righteous is beyond belief.

But you know what, it's a  kiwi thing.

We have a self rigehtous history like no other, we are
really a bully nation, thinking we can bring people down to
make us look better.

Take one of our main bloggers,  a person who spent decades
telling people to fuck off, calling them every name under
the sun, a person who doxxed people, who printed private
information,  has now became famous taking the role of the
victim, and the media laps her up.

We have a sports media, who makes fun of other sports,
Eg: they wear pads,  they are soft, they're cheats. A
sports media that constanly lies and tells us, the whole
world admirers  and respects our national sport team,
when  is reality the whole world has no idea or cares
about the AB's.

We have a media who says one of the greatest acheivements
the world has ever seen, is a politician who is pregnant.

We have a music media, who still sniggers, puts their hand
over the mouth, and rolls their eyes at the thought, that
another country may think a country artist has talent.

We have politicans who would rather support  Russia and
North Korea than the USA.

We have activists who say they're for free speech and that
they're anti apartheid, yet  totally supports business owners not
serving people from Israel.

We have people who publish hacked emails in books,
and then complain that their privacy has been violated.

We have a political party who says they're for the environment
and human rights, yet have never protested  China or Russia.

We are a hypocritical nation.

Other nations matured when they went into the 21st century,
New Zealand went backwards.

I just wish my fellow kiwis would get over themselves,
and stopped being so thin skinned, but we wont , I
unfortunately, think we will get worse.

Time will tell.

Time for Garth Brooks to Join "MeToo" and "TimesUp" campaign

Isn't it time that the biggest name in country music History,
Garth Brooks, made a stand by making a speech, and I don't mean
saying a nice soundbite on The Ellen Show, but actually give a speech
that is hard hitting, takes no prisoners, and challenges, other
male artists, writers, singers, record label guys and those in the
industry to take a zero tolerance policy on any BS that happens to females in the industry.

Thru the decades hes known as a nice guy that supports
women's issues, but now its time to get serious and take it
one step further and talk of things that may be difficult to discuss.

Hell its not just women's issues its everyone's issues.

Jacinda Ardern First Woman in History to Have a Baby

The New Zealand Prime Minister has created
History by becoming the first woman in History
to become pregnant.

She's having a baby!!!

I'm guessing  shes the first, because of the headlines
from the NewZealand media, which have been....

"Today anything is Possible"

"An inspiration for generations to come"

"A Historical day in Global History"

This has to be the greatest feat in the History of the world,
I cannot beleive how understated the NZ media has bee with

I guess Keith Locke and John Minto are so right, our media is
still just so so pro John Key.

We must bow down and acknowledge this perfect woman, the
first ever to be with child.

Bot Intelligence

I always wondered how it was done.

The math just didn't add up.  Lately I
have been reading about BOT Intelligence and
how a lot of twitter accounts are run by machines,
and not a human typing.

I'm not talking about how Bot Intelligence is done,
but how a blog could go so viral  so fast.

You see a few years ago, a blog supposedly got  a million
hits in just a few days.  Can happen I suppose, the blogger
has now become a published writer a editor of a major
news blog in New Zealand and doing the speaking

Of course the story behind her success, wasn't true,  it
wasn't her first blog, and this person had a history of
calling themselves a victim, yet they  were guilty of the
behaviour they were accusing others of, and were extremely

Anyway that's another story.  On the first few days of
their new blog, twitter in New Zealand went off,
tweet after tweet saying "You have go to this blog", "Funniest
post in Internet History"

 I thought at the time it was just a Mantra
from her fanbase,  but it appeared most tweets were word
for word the same, no difference and they would appear
every 10 to 15 seconds.

But after reading what I have read today, I believe this blogger has used "Bot Intelligence"

They have a history on twitter of deleting their own tweets,
they go off and on twitter every so often, (currently they have
a protected account)  So my theory is that  they're using Bot
Intelligence and are trying to hide it.

They wouldn't be the first Kiwis to use it,  NZ Rugby uses it,
and then reports false social media numbers to the media who
of course lap it up.

I find Bot Intelligence on social media for this purpose to
be disgusting and think it should be illegal.

Of course it wont, it's just kinda scary this is the way some
people use it.

Here's hoping the trend wont catch on.

Time will tell.

The Death Of Modern Family

The TV show Modern Family has died.

It is currently into it's ninth season, and will
have ten seasons, but  last night's episode
was the day it officially died for me.

The producers/writers have decided that their
sole purpose is to make sure Disney has their
next child star.

Nothing against the child actor,  but he's just
a pawn in a money making machine, sure
its a faux doco, and the actors look at the camera,
but this child actor has yet to figure out the times
he is suppose to look at the camera and the times
he isnt.

But that's not my main beef  with the show and how they handle
this actor.

It use to be edgy, they use to write brillantly for their kid
actors, now they have turned the show into some Disney Junior
Full House show.

Shot after shot, there is a close up of  Joe Pritchett's face, he may
say lines like "I luv you mummy" or  "Im sorry" and the shot
will linger on his big brown eyes.

It's killed the show for me, I feel like I'm watching a show for little
kids, then straight after his scenes they may have more adult content
with the adult actors.

Bit it seems more often than not the show, is about pushing this
kid and his cuteness on to the viewing public.

A far cry from season one when Phil  Shot Luke with  a paintball

I'm kinda guessing next week episode, there will be half a dozen
shots of Joe's face close up.

I wont know, because I wont be watching.

RIP Modern Family,  2009-2018.

Ten Years Blogging

Today is the tenth anniversary of this blog.

I started this blog ten year ago.

And not one bad post.

And a mammoth 150K hits in ten years.

Perhaps I should look to do other things?

Time will tell.
