When I see stupid-arse uninformed articles like the one below….
I’m like.. WTF People!!
The actual article this was butchered from is:
OK so this has been getting on my nerves a bit lately. Seeing all these people on social media sites saying things like “Oh this is so barbaric” and so on..
I mean, Just hold up a minute… have you really actually thought about what your shooting your mouth off about ?? NO! no, you haven’t that much is painfully obviously.
It’s ok for you to sit in front of your computers, tablet devices, smartphones, eating a steak, writing things like hunting is wrong, whaling is wrong, fishing is wrong, vegies have feelings too…
It’s apparently ok to go get your McDonalds or KFC or whatever fast-food you like, and not give a second thought as to where the ingredients came from, while you bitch and moan about how evil some countries are for breeding dogs for food or slaughtering cows, pigs, frogs and chickens…
You lot, who don’t understand where food comes from, should really use that nice relaxing time in front of the computer, and search it up!
Sorry if that’s a bit harsh, but reality is, hunting for food has been going on since the beginning of time, it’s how we survived all these years, and if it wasn’t for hunting and fishing and whatnot, likely none of us would be here now. We just simply would not exist.
Only in recent times have our ‘sensibilities’ been a little shaken, because these last few generations of people have become isolated from the real world, isolated from where their beautifully packaged produce in the bright shiny supermarkets actually comes from.
I grew up in a farming community, I know where my food comes from, my pet sheep tasted damned good. My dad had a hothouse in the back yard and we grew most of our own vegies.
If people really want to make a change in the world, bitching about how undomesticated or barbaric some countries are when it comes to survival isn’t the way to do it.
Take a look at what the world has become today, what your laziness has created.
Nuclear fallout from power plants, built to feel a generation of humans who want more technology more shiny toys, less interaction with the real world.
The more we isolate our kids from the realities of life, the worse this will get.
The more likely it will be that they will not ever know how to care for themselves or survive in the world.
If you want to make a change.. then start in your own back yard (so to speak), plant a garden, grow your own, .. heck, stop buying from the big bright shiny supermarkets where everything looks good and you’ve been dis-associated the realities of where the food that’s kept countless generations of people alive has come from.
Remember, every country has its own unique recourses for food, some countries eat dog, its perfectly normal, some countries eat fish, some eat meat… in the end.. we all have to eat to survive and we are HUNTERS. That’s what the Human species is. …. OMG I ranted. Epic!
So if you can’t understand that…
Which makes THIS:
To become that which you love so much:
Then we are all doomed if you just don’t understand.
Reality is outside your door, not inside your gaming console.
“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.”

can a man be pushed?
Be bound by his history,
his own individual reality,
leaning towards an epic revelation
of whom he will not be, again.
For the change is upon him, us, all that dwell within these dark pages…
bound by tattooed covers of encapsulation.
A book, is not a man.
But a man, becomes his own unfinished story – in the end.
Epicness of creation, Mr Kevin Hartly.
Actor, Creator, and not too bad in the kitchen either…

An interesting couple of documentaries by the bbc about the changing population of the world with two extreme examples, the massive population decline in Japan and the massive increase in the Philippines. Two different countries at the two different ends of the economic boom.
Statistics trending both ways, as Japan declines and the older generation are too many for the working generation to support (much like what’s happening in NZ) and in the Philippines where it’s the other way around.
Watching the documentary, you can see, that what happened with the boomers in Japan and how its effected the country, will happen to the Philippines or any growing economy. India and China no doubt will be no different.
The third documentary is the statistic one, really interesting to see the world as a whole population wise.

Sometimes, we just want to give up
throw in the towel, walk away
become a ghost.

January the 1st, 2014 – Here we are
I just had the most bizarre and surreal in-depth conversation with a homeless guy in the next property….
Next door to where I live in a national reserve park area, an old lava flow path from one of the old volcano’s here in Auckland, Mt Eden was also an old Maori Pa.
I was sitting here on the internet just bumming about and I heard noises from outside, so went and had a look.
Now, I’ve seen the guy a few times from a distance over the years I’ve been here, and just sort of glanced and carried on, but this time, i went out and spotted him clearing up the old fallen branches from the boundary points around the property….
He stopped and looked up, and said hi, and we sort of started nattering about the place, and who lived here and there, and that he likes to go into the reserve and tidy up, which he does well i admit, and we talked about the history of the place, where the lava flow path is, how it made its way down to the waterfront and how the Maori People of the time used to go fishing and then haul the catch back up to the Pa for the tribes up there.
All too interesting sometimes, when you stop and talk to those you would normally not.
We get too caught up in our busy little lives, working hard to buy the latest tv or smartphone, and we lose touch with what we grew up with.. well, ok maybe not the current young generation, but those of us pushing around in their 40’s anyways… when we grew up in the ending bits of the Great Kiwi Lifestyle, so to speak.
In my line of work, i get to meet and chat with all manner of people from all walks of life, all difference cultures and levels of communication skills, and i love this little country I call home , for its diversity and peacefulness.
Sure we still have crime here, every country no matter how developed or regulated does, but it’s mild compared to other places, and the more I travel over seas and see what life is like there, the more I love the country I grew up in.
Following my passion for photography has lead me to see another side of life in NZ that I never gave a second thought too, well, not only here but also over seas, like Homelessness in Hawaii, a place you’d never expect that to exist in.. Oddly, i guess, we can’t get away from the ever harsher world that is becoming. As the Rich get richer, the poorer get poorer and the middle class become the lower-middle class…
Anyway, that’s enough from me for now, I’m getting read as I’m going for a road trip tomorrow for a few days, get away from the city and go explore some of the east coast of New Zealand…. I’ll blog it all when I get back.. maybe 3 or 4 days.
Take care everyone, hope you all have an amazing 2014.
