Another instant classic by the unstoppable Carolyn Guytonbeck of Totally Wired. Today: the Speight’s brewery’s clever marketing tools. Part 1: the beer barrel chimney top. Great work, Carolyn, danke schön!

Part 2 of the collection: “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition South Island (BOUNZESI)”. Have a lovely weekend, y’all, while deciding if the South or the North wins. For me, it’s clear as Lake Wakatipu.

Motueka 2 - Travelling Light

A shot for true New Zealand connoisseurs: green pastures, sheep, fences, corrugated steel, barrels, yummy fruit (in the making). Carefully composed and captured by the indispensable Travelling Light.

While we are it, have you seen the sheep cyclone? Sheep Cyclone Video on MSN.

Motueka River Valley - Travelling Light

Speaking of skydiving: this is perhaps the type of rural arrangement you don’t want to encounter. Mad scientists – that was yesterday. Prepare for the MAD GARDENERS!

Kaiteriteri 1989 - Travelling Light

A japanese car in 1989’s Kaiteriteri. Have a look at the Google Maps location to find that nothing has changed, except the colour temperature. Quite reassuring.

The Beauty of Casino Testicles

21/12/2011 at 11:07 am

Is there a better way to celebrate the festive spirit than to present the testicular decoration of Christchurch’s Casino? I don’t think so.

This post is a shameless regurgitation of a “The Worst of Perth” article. The Worst of Perth is our – far superior – brother in the crime of regional mockery. Visit them to find out more thrilling geological details!

Happy Christmas, and have a couple nice days, y’all!
See you next year!
