I've been thinking about writing an article for the Rebuild Christchurch site for a while now about public transport issues since the February 22nd earthquake... I'm hoping not to come across as a whinging ungrateful resident when people out there are in damaged houses and here I am complaining about a few buses.

I've always maintained that there's a song for everything, for every moment, and I often use them in my uni essay titles. Among others, I've used song and album titles from the likes of (There is no depression in New Zealand), (Never mind the bollocks), and (All shook up). I have an article (soon to be published), about the pop music played at the 2007 Netball World Championships, that quotes the Andy Williams song, 'Music to watch girls by' in its title.

We've always enjoyed his take on the building process, especially his little asides to the camera during which he questions the sanity of the people involved, and the likelihood of the project being completed on time or under budget.

And it always seems that, no matter how long the delays or how big the cost overrun is, the house and its completion a ...
