Cambridge New Zealand – coming up – Chris Thompson

Chris says

Well, it starts at 8pm and goes till late & I’ll be playing a mixture of my own songs as well as some Folk/Blues and Country standards – it’ll be about 60% original songs. There’s no cover charge as far as I am aware. All welcome.

That would be at Flying Nunn (the once infamous Kelly Browne’s Bar), 3 Empire Street, Cambridge this Friday, the 30th of July 2010.

Karapiro New Zealand – the I’m on tv experience

Hey! I'm on TV

something which will live on in memory – similar to that described here. Lotsa fun. Mostly Karapiro School folk – there may be one or two Cambridge East School people in there as well. Oh, and the chap is Tamati Coffey. The TVNZ clips are here. Karapiro School website.

Mōrena mai roto Karapiro, Waipa, Waikato, Te Ika a Maui


Karapiro on the TV this morning, but, I’m not quite sure why here in weather forecast terms is Kirikiriroa. Kirikiriroa aka Hamilton is a good 25 kms away downstream or north-west – take your pick – must have something to do with the concept main centre – we know better of course. Impressed with the use of Te Reo in naming the rohe – I have this feeling I’m missing something here – I mean this is breakfast television.

Mock HDRI or a fluke? It does look the part – though, don’t look too closely! I quite like the building, but have yet to get a real handle on it. It does have a quiet presence which suits it’s place in the world, sitting as it is, alongside a large body of water. For some reason this photograph reminds me of some stylish 1950s American house and garden magazine illustration or perhaps an advertisment in National Geographic of similar vintage.
