As New Zealanders have their eyes on either Lorde’s state of the nation speech or David Cunliffe’s performance at the grammys we take a look around the rest of the world and see what’s going on.

Unheralded Stuff: 23 January 2014

Once more the world sections of Stuff.co.nz and the Herald have been fairly comprehensive. Good job guys. This has also been a learning curve for me, I’ve learned a lot of things that are going on in the world. And they’re quite shit for the most part. Lucky I am able to laugh at the worst we have to offer.

Here’s a collection of links to stories I haven’t noticed on Stuff or the Herald. Most of it is depressing because hey, we live in a depressing world. But there we go.

About 12 months ago I lay awake. It was night time so I shouldn’t have been awake. But I was awake. And I didn’t know why. I thought I must’ve been stressed about something. So I started cycling through the Rolodex of things going on in my life.

Questioning Colin

Questioning Colin
