Holy cow the Exclusive Brethren seem like a weird bunch of freaks. TV3 seem completely right when they call them a "religious sect" on tonights broadcast. These freaks of nature apparently avoid technology like televisions and computers and radios and newspapers. Bloody hell they must be the most ill-informed bunch of "religious nutters you are ever likely to come across. I thought their political leaflet they sent me in the mail was actually from the Greens so I completely ignored it and biffed it in the trash. Ha! Suck on that you "religious fools. You spent half a million bucks and I didn't read your damn leaflet!

Now here is something that has been bothering me for a long time. Why is it that George Bush talks so slow and in such short sentences? Why does he pause for effect so often in his sentences? It's not as though what he says is all that meaningful. He's been doing it ever since 9/11, and it's really pissing me off. I just want to reach down through the radio or TV and wind the prick up. He's obviously wound down and doesn't have the puff in him to talk like a decent intelligent human being (Manda, should human being be capitalized? You would know that!).

I Jonah Lomo'd this photo of the shed in the country mostly because I wasn't that happy with the composition and needed something to hide that. I took it at the start of the 35kms of gravel road on Saturday. And frankly, I was much more interested in the gravel road than taking photos for that 30 minutes.

And thanks to everyone that leaves comments here. I'm not sure if I've said thanks before, but it's great to hear from you all and to read your comments!

  • human being no capitalisation. in new zealand most people still prefer the non-americanised spellings, i.e. no z in words like globalisation. and as always, my dear dave, photos does not have an apostrophe ;)

  • One would wonder if the exclusive bretheren don't read papers or watch tv etc how do they know what is happening with the govt enough to send out leaflets

  • Bloody good point mother. Or why they need a website. Of course they need a website to drag other dipshits into their evil sect. But who makes their website? Or tests it? Or checks that it's all ok?

  • as to George Bush speaking slowly haven't you noticed he has an ear piece and his father tells him what to say, sometime the old guy goes to sleep so George jnr has to wait for him to wake up.

  • even if you are, why admit it on the internets?

  • I like this picture and the colour saturation but one question Mr Dave is it looks like you cropped your LOMO effect? Are you trying to start some new movement ? Half a LOMO who would have thought. Maybe we could call that the LOM effect, what do you think?

  • I think it's the Potsatoshop action I have that only applies it's lomoisation the half the image. I might hunt another one!

  • Yes you could be right, you may have only half a potatoe then? Hey I thought you could spell !

  • I grew up as an exlusive brethren. It is 10 years since my family left. They are as weird and confusing as a lot of ppl think they are. I think most of the "outisde" world has a blurry view of them cos they keep themselves so closed. I'm more than happy to answer any questions if ppl have them
