Stop-gap: the Weekend


My weekend in 135 words or less: After a TWO HOUR delay (capitals compulsory) at the Wellington Airport on Friday night I eventually got to Auckland around 9:30. Auckland was HOTT. I had an excellent time at Galatos where the Black Seeds played a funky and energised set to an appreciative capacity crowd.

Just an aside. When you're in Galatos St and it's raining so you have to huddle in doorways, look out for creepy boys who flash small blue torches at you and say, "This light can pick up traces of semen and urine!" Freak.

The pic is of the Japanese Garden of Contemplation, which can be found at the Hamilton Gardens. Yes! I spent enough time in Hamilton to explore the Gardens! Now there's a story. More to come on Soundsplash.

Bloody hell! I'm from Hamilton and I haven't visited the gardens. I tell a lie...once for a wedding, but that doesn't count.

Hey, when you've got eight hours to kill and Spongebob Squarepants is only an hour and a half long... a fairly average hour and a half at that.

Galatos St is just dodgy in general. I did my first line there, in the front seat of some car that didn't belong to some guy that we met at The Supper Club, who started making out with my friend in the back seat. I was rather unimpressed and walked away.

Hamilton Gardens are awesome. I don't know if its still there but there used to be a quite large wild flower garden full of crazy ass colours not far from the japanese garden.

I usually like a good dose of fog, but that fog made me nervous... especially when driving into the city in peak hour morning traffic... and looking over to your left you could only see the vaguest trace of the water rippling... *starts singing Preaching the End of the World*
