Sir Jon Trimmer headlines in Paekakariki CD launch show

Ballet legend Sir Jon Trimmer will present a sequence of poems with music in Livin’ Ina Aucklan’, a CD launch show and celebration in St Peters Hall, Paekakariki, on Friday 13 November starting at 7.30 pm.

The show will feature original songs and performances based on poems by Paekakariki poet Dr Michael O’Leary. Other performers are by notable Kapiti Coast singers, musicians and composers including Brian Romeril, Al Witham, Meg Prasad, Francis Mills, Helen Dorothy, Hilda Prasad, Sean O’Leary and Gilbert Haisman.
(aka – Earl of Seacliff’s Lonely Hearts Club Band).

“The songs are amazingly diverse and Kiwi to the core,” says O’Leary. “There’ll be humour and toe-tappers but mostly quite serious stuff made accessible in diverse ways. You can’t pigeon-hole anything, except its more Beatles than Bach.”

“The whole project has been a privilege for me. It’s great for a writer to be in Paekakariki, a village that can turn on performance collaborations like nowhere else. We’re also grateful to Creative New Zealand and the Kapiti Coast District Council for community arts funding for the CD.”

Admission to the BYO event, which includes a light supper, is $10 at the door. The CD will be available at a launch-only discount price of $15.


Livin’ Ina Aucklan’. CD launch show celebration, featuring Sir Jon Trimmer and others, with songs and performances from poems by Michael O’Leary. Friday 13 November. 7.30 pm, St Peters Hall, Paekakariki. Door sales $10.

Thin Ice

I went to a screening in Paekakariki , last Sunday night, there was an impressive 100+ (?) people there, alas most were close to death, as in around 70yo 😉 but they turned up, so good on them.
What I found sad was the massive understatements that came from James Renwick and Martin Manning, who were there as part of the discussion panel.
I think we should say thanks to the scientists, they have done an ok job of getting the information out, considering 99% of humans just do not want to know.
I think the scientists have done their job now, we don’t need any more evidence as to how screwed we are.
By the time a report is peer reviewed and published, it is out of date, with the IPCC being about 5 years behind.
400 ppm CO2= minum +6c (pre industrial), and we are adding CO2 at faster than exponential speed. +6C also equals Run Away Global Warming, we are on our way to a Venus type environment.
Also at about +4C humans go extinct … we simply run out of oxygen, which will wipe out whoever has survived the toxic mess 436 nuclear power plants going ‘Fukushima’ will create. not forgetting all the cooling ponds dependent on pumped water.
And another thing not mentioned on Sunday night (except by me) is the millions of square miles of under ocean tundra that is fast dissolving, releasing tons of methane, which alone is an extinction event feed back loop.
And …. Global Dimming wasn’t mentioned.
So yeah thanks for your past efforts, the numbers are in now, there is no clawing our way back up the cliff.
I would recommend we stop adding to the problem via the maternity wards, but that idea is still a few years away from being taken up … at ‘best’ 5 😉
