An interesting and thought provoking interview by TED with Ed, via webcam..
Worth a watch and listen to some of the points raised and a cameo by the father of the internet..
Although TED sucks cause it gives in to corporate pressures to NOT screen some speeches about GMO, recently a good example, when TED caved into Monsanto, they still occasionally have something worth watching.
… or is it ?
On the other hand…
Richard Ledgett: The NSA responds to Edward Snowden’s TED Talk
Yea yeo, good morning.. today there’s an 80 percent chance of rain… uumm sure sure but hey.. it might do.
And as I walk outside.. lol.. it rains :p
Going to jens all day today for her birthday today.
I’ll be adventuring around on the following two days.
Expecting to go to temple village including temples and some other spots.. will see what the weather gods allow.
Did some quick cloths shopping.. bought some v neck shirts like $15.00 100pct cotton.. serious.. good quality.. can’t get them for twice the price back
The 22nd of June 2103 was an odd day for me, woke up, it’ was the 22nd, I had lunch, my lunch table number was 22, and the price of lunch was $22.00 and at 44, I’m exactly 22 years younger than a 22 yrold ? LOL needless to say, I bought a Lottery ticket.
Anyhoo… I was bored and went on an Adventure… and some how ended up at Hobbiton!! A place I swore I’d never go.. I mean, ok not a LOTR fan.. but I liked the movie, least the parts I didn’t fall asleep in.. .. sooo…
Last year, they released The Hobbit, part 1, and the Movie Set was officially opened as an attraction…
It’s in a backwards town called Matamata, and I recommend you all go visit it at least once in your life, just to say you’ve been there, seen that, didn’t get hairy feet, and bought the tee-shirt.
The tour is… EXPENSIVE… NZD$75.00… OUCHIES.. but meh… I had nothing else planned anyways.
It’s run by LoTR Tours (nz), from what I understand, a company shared by the movie company, Peter Jackson and the farm owners in the area.
The tour takes you into the set, a walk around, a peek inside, and the pub.
The tour site is here: http://www.hobbitontours.com/
