  3. Never-seen-before footage from a documentary that never-quite-was, about the damp and soggy 1999 Cuba Street Carnival.

    in which Thomas talks to the former head of New Zealand's Association of Consumers and Taxpayers (ACT, geddit) party, Richard Prebble. Back in the 1980s, Prebble was one of the politicians most responsible for dismantling NZ's welfare state and flogging off most of our assets etc. Prebble, in the words of a crazy heavy metal guy, 'fucked us all up the bum'.

Here you will find choice tidbits of never-seen-before footage from a documentary that never-quite-was, about the 1999 Cuba Street Carnival.

This is Wellington personality Thomas LaHood in champagne form as a cheeky, quasi-BBC-esque broadcaster, doing his utmost to cover a story that just wasn't that much of a story.

MARVEL at baby-faced Bret and juvenile Jemaine, many years before their international famousness!

CHORTLE as Samuel Scott and Lukasz Buda express some passive-agressive rock attitude!

CRINGE at recently-retired right wing Kiwi politician, Richard Prebble, as he tries to win us over by telling us he was a [cough] 'impoverished student'!

All that, and more. (Not that much more, unfortunately.)
