At The Drive Thru

At The Drive (formerly known as The Egonomist); your premier source for rants, raves and arguments on topics from Politics to News to Social Trends, with a focus on New Zealand but with an eye to the world. Each week Dan and Dave will bring you new episodes. Sometimes deep and philosophical, sometimes filth and vitriol, we aim to be a voice of informed malcontent.

Hey!

Trump's World Tour. The tragic Manchester attack. KFC. UK's election. Wonder Woman? Can't type more, gotta sleep.

Hey!

Chris Cornell's tragic passing and what it might mean for our culture's attitudes to mental health, big pharma, ageing, art and the catharsis believed to be at the heart of alternative music. Also Dan hurt his foot again which touches on a lot of the same stuff.

Corbyn is actually putting up a fight in old blighty just as the tories push for the violent killing of red dogs - coincidence much?

And Trump in Saudi Arabia - same as it ever was. Assange is slimy. Russia is a thing.

Bumper music;

Fazerdaze - Lucky Girl

Chris Cornell - Follow My Way

Jimi Hendrix - Foxex Lady

Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend

Hey!

We struggle, really, to make sense of the breaking news that Trump has fired the guy investigating him. Does fascism require a certain deftness of efficient political control or is it all just grifting mobsters in sharp uniforms? France has an election, which is more than can be said about some people, South Korea excepted.

Dan heroically watches Shipley and Clark's 9th Floor episodes. We celebrate Tax Freedom Day, which is a dumb day for idiots. 

And the Government does everything it can to make the Pike River story feel as odious and dark as it possibly can.

Bumper music;

Charly Bliss - Ruby

At The Drive In - Hostage Stamps

Skating Polly - Hail Mary

Puff Daddy - Come With Me
