Thankyou to everyone who came to the gigs on my recent New Zealand Dairy Tour in January. I had a wonderful three weeks of shows. A highlight was experiencing Milford Sound for the first time, yippee times a million. They had half a metre of rain over the four days before I took a boat trip there, that much water was surreal. Here are some photos:
Here is a wee clip I made playing one of my favorite Robbie Fulks songs ‘Stone River’ oneday by the beautiful Wanganui River where I stayed at a cabin only accessible by a flying fox. I used some video I took in Milford Sound too.
‘Stone River’ by Robbie Fulks.
Another amusing NZ memory from my journal. ‘I just sat next to the editor in chief of some christchurch Fairfax newspaper on the plane from Wellington. She explained a lot about that major newspaper world. “Shock jocks aren’t fence sitters that’s why we need them” apparently. We spoke of spies working there at one point, how New Zealand spies on Americans and the American government buy that info back as it’s illegal for them to do that sort of spying on their own citizens, Snowden etc. 5 countries including us do it apparently. I most enjoyed the part when she explained that she got heaps of complaint emails today as she pulled the horoscope section permanently and replaced it with a sudoko game. She said the horoscopes are commercially produced and the paper would buy them for 10k a year from some American horoscope company, who had computers writing them at random. (” Wait.. What? The future of my love life is written at random by a computer and not painstakingly read every night in the planets by the loyal horoscope staff writer?) She said she couldn’t print the horoscopes anymore and give her readers all this phoney false hope. Ok but.. Anyway! I guess from now on there will be a few more Fairfax readers cueing to get their palms read at the local weekend garden market.’
I look forward to seeing you on the Australian Autumn tour.
