Who doesn’t love music artist Tiki Taane? Recently he had to deal with newspapers, politicians? and even the local popo (police) twisting his words as an artist?
Very Ai Wei Wei, when you think about it?! Gosh… who would have thought? This guy is a locally grown Kiwi legend. Anyways, he’s written a brand new song (as with artists) ALL experiences inform their new art… and I have to say, the song has a really good ‘sing with your best mates around the BBQ in the backyard’ Kiwi feel to it. Something tells me, it’s going to be a local hit.
In todays newspaper, Tiki Taane says publicity around his court case (after he was arrested mid-concert for a song choice, and singing the first line or two of the song) has fuelled his career and led to a sell-out Australian tour.
The Always On My Mind singer was in court yesterday on charges relating to an incident in April when he sang the gangsta rap protest song F*** tha Police as officers carried out a routine inspection at the Illuminati nightclub in Tauranga.
The 34-year-old, who has just finished an Australian tour to promote his new album, has pleaded not guilty to disorderly behaviour likely to cause violence.
Yesterday, he appeared briefly in the Tauranga District Court, and his case was adjourned for a status hearing on August 26.
He said later that he would fight the charge. “I’m just interested in getting in court and having my story told and seeing what the judge thinks.
“Of course I wanted to shake hands and say no hard feelings … but obviously you can’t do it like that, so we’re just gearing up for the next phase.”
Taane admitted he had been happy to discuss the case with Australian media as it had helped his tour.
He said Australian media thought it was “quite bizarre that I got arrested for singing a song”.
While in Australia, he also performed Freedom to Sing, a song he wrote about his arrest.
Taane disputed comments by Police Association president Greg O’Connor that the charges involved more than just the lyrics he recited.
“My behaviour was fine. If it was about my behaviour … I would be up for obstruction or resisting arrest.
“It’s definitely about me singing lyrics that one police officer got offended with, came back and put me in cuffs and took me away.”
Mr O’Connor said he stood by his views, adding: “I think people should just wait until the facts come out.”
Bar promoter Patricio Alvarez-Riveros, 24, is also facing charges relating to the incident.
FREEDOM TO SING
You can handcuff me and take me away
But you can’t take my freedom to sing
You can drag me down to prison today
But you can’t take my freedom to sing
You can charge me with whatever you want
But you can’t take my freedom to sing
You can lock me up and throw away the key
But you can’t take what’s inside of me
Freedom, freedom, to sing

New Zealand has a very distinctive Kiwi-pop sound. Here’s a blast from the past from Don McGlashan in his years in the band The Mutton Birds.
Even the harmonies of the band are performed in angsty Kiwi-pop tones. A classic Kiwi sound.
Enjoy A Thing Well Made. A song about a man working in a sportshop. It demonstrates the Kiwi art of songwriting, while performing at one end of the country (Auckland City) and considering the folks down south in Westland or Canterbury. This is a Kiwi artform all on its own. We call it, Kiwi Bush Telegraph of arts and culture.

That doesn’t mean my love somehow diminished… when the words destroy all meaning–Chris Knox, songwriter extraordinaire reminds us in a song to love in noble actions as well as the illusive promises of written and oratory breathed words alone.
There’s nothing like a Pearl Jam artist of Southern California, via Seattle who writes of Ukelele Songs and Into the Wild and Water on The Road, singing with New Zealand’s future generations of cultural leaders strumming up a storm and singing a song penned by a great, Chris Knox.
Here’s Eddie Vedder singing Not Given Lightly. Neil and Liam Finn celebrate this song with Eddie too.
Press play to enjoy. Mauri ‘Ola Chris Knox and the USA and South Pacific Island dwelling friends.

As a Maori-Kiwi who writes from California USA, I am from a nation who respects Israel. We are pro-Israel when Israel is in democratic leadership that is just and displaying good traits of strength firmly grounded in humility.
In fact we are the most pro-American when America is pro-Israel’s spirit of fair democracy too. As a culture, it’s how we’re made and have been fashioned to feel strongly this way. That will never change.
New Zealand has 75 tribes (more as well) of Maori people, all who have deep links to ancestral lands in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Our ancestors are buried in hills, on mountains along our coastlines. Although they are not with us, their bones bear witness of our spirit in the world along those landmarks they lived, saw as their own and are buried. This can or will never change either. It’s who New Zealand is and always has been for centuries. In that regard we are on Israel’s same page. We are a nation in some regards much older than America – although we like to call ourselves young as well.
We understand Israel perhaps more deeply than many other nations because we are in relationship to landscape too, over a capitalistic stand point alone, that often over-values commodifying landscape as an asset sale to the land’s and coastal territories’ spiritual significance to a robust culture and its protection.
Our culture and identity is in the land, just like Israel’s is too. Because we therefore see through similar eyes and we have in New Zealand for centuries as Israel believes they have too, ideologically we have many similarities and shared traits.
Aotearoa New Zealand will always extend our tewhatewha (look this word up) of spiritual protection over Israel and Israel’s people even if we have or do not have a Kiwi leader of Jewish descent at the helm. It is our nation’s mantel of spirit. We possess this richly, Given for a purpose, it cannot be defeated.
Currently we are blessed and fortunate to have a New Zealander of Jewish descent lead us. He is a gift ‘from the ancients’ (to be poetic) and he is a gift from his ancestors to us all, not only in New Zealand but for the gifts contained in his life – to offer stability, wisdom of leadership in the world. We value his families’ culture in our nation. We believe that he (and they all) make us stronger as a people and a democratic nation.
As a good Kiwi then (it must be a rare day for me – to be writing that!), who loves Arab people and who was socialized with Lebanese-Kiwi’s too across six generations of harmonious Kiwi living, Mr Benjamin Netanyahu‘s latest interview, fascinates today here in Hollywood as culturally relevant Kiwi TV. Watch it by pressing play.
Some highlights of the interview are:

Growing up playing rugby football, I never thought I’d see the day where somehow I’d get to blog in Hollywood (woot!) about rugby football coaching legend Graeme Henry hanging out at a cricket match with The Gladiator/ Robin Hood Oscar winner guy (Russell Crowe). Yet today is that surreal collision of Kiwi childhood dreams converging into this one photograph by Mark Mitchell. For more photos of Russell, Graeme and friends, go here to view these lads in action for Charity cricket for Christchurch City’s rebuilding effort post the quake in Wellywood. A nice gesture.
Graeme Henry is the current coach of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team, a football team most people in the world have heard of and like. Graeme’s always as laid back as a Tararua cheese TVC. He’s a dude.
Voted in Hollywood today, here’s our top ten trending celebrity, entertainment and news posts on a day where we are all conscious of earthquake survivors in Japan, Christchurch and Tsunami survivors too. Peace!
Writes Reuters of this Satellite image of Japan post the quake and tsunami – This one-meter resolution satellite image of Fukushima Daiichii Nuclear Power Plant in Japan, right, was taken one day after an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck the Oshika Peninsula on March 11, 2011. According to news reports, this is the largest earthquake to hit Japan in recorded history. Analysts believe the powerful earthquake moved Japan’s main island eight feet, shifted the Earth on its axis four inches and unleashed a devastating tsunami. The image shows extensive destruction to buildings, vehicles and infrastructure. Entire regions have been flooded, swept away or reduced to ruin. The image was taken by GeoEye’s IKONOS satellite at 10:36 a.m. (local time) on March 12, 2011 from 423 miles in space. The image on the left is a satellite images of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant taken by the GeoEye-1 satellite on November 15, 2009. - Washington Post for REUTERS.

Maori bros. Herbs, a Kiwi band from Gisbourne and the East Coast of New Zealand, onced dramatically questioned nuclear power’s place in the world.
At the time, they seemed commonsensical, if not a little bit naive, slightly self righteous on a green issue for the environment, in questioning the ‘what if’ nuclear waste was released into the environment, theme of their song.
In New Zealand as kids growing up, we danced to this song at school discos (prom nights).
This song from the 80′s provides poignant music reflection as we all hope for the best for Japan’s people (first and foremost), who are at risk of a nuclear meltdown, to their personage and sense of home… and also the environment of Japan and surrounding districts.
In the spirit of believing and hoping for the best for Japan in this crises hour, here’s also Herbs song Sensitive To A Smile, that is all about being kaitiaki (or guardians) of the world for the children, the people who will inherit this world the way we work with it and design it for changing times.
It’s a warm hearted song. I hope you like it. Their message is pray, (for wisdom) not take away, as depicted on the ancestral whenua (coastal landscapes) of Ngati Porou, the home of Maori greats like Ta Witi Ihimaera, Hekia Parata, Robin Pere (Bell) Barker tona whanau, Papa Api Mahuika, Taika Cohen, Ainsley Gardiner, Sir Wira Gardiner, Dale, Kobey, Darrin, Patsie, Pa K and Dennis Barry (and their friends like Mary Teachin) to name a few of a long list of good people who practice the spirit of manaakitanga (hospitality from the heart) on these landscapes all year round adding to the Kiwi fused art of bronaaki (Kiwi brotherhood of common shared bonds of community hearted ties).
These are my people with a message today for this earth we all call our kainga (home). Enjoy.

Leza Corban is a songstress who is a master at jazz singing. She can sing anything though. Click on above pic to hear Corban sing. Leza also has worked for many other recording artists, including The Strawpeople and Debbie Harwood. Here’s a classic Kiwi lounge tune called Scared of Flying. It’s what we listen to, in our down time with gorgeous beach and rural views on weekends.
In World news via the New York Times, a big budget Hollywood movie’s wardrobe department could not have found better distressed denim jeans (made in Los Angeles) to put on Libyan rebels, photographed here rather fashionably defying Qaddafi troops at Tripolis border in this pic with rockets and guns. If you’re going to die, you may as well look good, right? This photo is a bit odd, actually. Very fashionable rebel lads, I must say.
Of course, Colonel Kadafi’s latest appearance has again, for the fourth decade running now, managed to adjust global economies and push the price of oil up. How does he manage to do that by being a grumpy grandad, presented to Western Media to explain oil price hikes. Because he’s a ‘foreign face’ in the “West’ we just excuse it as ‘crazy Middle East behavior.’ We shouldn’t, when he’s acting for others. But that has been his gig for forty years now. Pretty much.
The US is further along in the big disappearing act in Afghanistan now with troops being withdrawn more and more – while the NY Post floats the rather naive journalistic concept of the USA picking “the winners of the Mid East’s new line up.” The cheek! It was always going to be the Monarch nations who were the winners. But they do make Presidents of nations look like puppets of Monarchy, in this trade off of wealth acquisition (oil hikes) for giving their people ‘democracy’ Western style. They cheapen the political world with these antics. Gotta love the front page of The Times today. It’s a little rich. Very ‘Wall Street’ is the tone of the article who are some of the most oil addicted/ dependent people in the world (like many of us as well), with how this news effects stock market bearings and outcomes.
In particular, this is the verbage penned by Helene Cooper on the matter of whose winning via the Mid East oil/ ‘revolution’ show – “As the Obama administration grapples with a cascade of uprisings in the Middle East, it has come to a stark recognition: the region’s monarchs are likely to survive; its presidents are more likely to fall.
Helene continues – “In the rapidly changing map that stretches from Morocco to Iran, two presidents have already tumbled: Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali of Tunisia. Administration officials said they believe that Yemen’s authoritarian president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, is in an increasingly tenuous position.
Yet in Bahrain, King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa has so far managed to weather a surge of unrest, winning American support, even though his security forces were brutal in their crackdown of protesters. Officials believe that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is also unlikely to be dethroned, while the emirs of the Persian Gulf have so far escaped unrest. Even in Jordan, where serious protests erupted, King Abdullah II has maneuvered deftly to stay in power, though he still has to contend with a restive Palestinian population.”
Monarchs sit pretty and all the rest is distraction, pretty much.
The US however talks imposing ‘unilateral sanctions to deter Libya’ while the other oil family, The Bushes of Texas with good Saudi ties, cancels a scheduled public appearance because ‘appearing with Julian Assange of Wikileaks together at the same venue is the reason given for the cancelled speaking gig.’ Fair enough, but Aussie’s aren’t that scary. Or are they? A Saudi student in Texas is arraigned and arrested in a bomb plot at the exact same time. Bloggers apparently love talking about this. Why, I don’t know!
The people of Bahrain want more changes. Is their internet too slow? This is ridiculous! :)
And, The Discovery space shuttle heads into Orbit for the last time. Apparently. Here’s ten posts we’re sharing as pop culture in this moment, on the build up to Helena Ataya of Aotearoa New Zealand’s centenary celebrations, right here from the City of Angels. Enjoy.
Texas was doing a lot today with Saudi, Wikileaks distancing and Space Shuttle launches. Wowsa!

To love our enemies is where true love begins
Peace is like a harmonious river that always flows over the rocks and hate-hurled boulders of the human frailties and short-sighted misunderstandings of history’s wars–Horiwood 2010′s for World Peace
Two brothers of New Zealand ask one question in song. That question is very pertinent for all leaders of the civilized world today who claim to know what Peace is, when dishing out Peace Awards on a global stage.
How deep is your love?
Here’s of New Zealand with that question with their performance as sung by brothers 9z and Viiz Tupa’i of Otara - South Auckland, in The Supercity of New Zealand.
