The pipey stuff on its upper decky thing is painted green, presumably alluding to the small native parrot for which it is named. It is apparently some sort of oil tanker which just makes the name all the more horribly inapposite and somehow blackly appealing. The Kakariki lumbers up and down the South Island on a semi-regular basis, rusting slowly, scaring our poodle with its horn and delivering the petrochemicals that are still poisoning our future despite our having known better for quite a while now. You can stalk industrial ships online; I had no idea.
This week will be photo-heavy due to general Easter industriousness etc and the vague notion that I should post some of the images we've taken over summer because they may not fit into winter business.
Just a quick reminder during this originally Pagan festival to stay away from organised religion, kids. It's racketeering at best and genocidal at worst. Look at the fucking Catholic church. They propagated and distributed pedophiles in order to keep their flock's shame quotient at lucrative levels and they still don't give a rat's arse about any of it. Islam, Judaism and all the other dude-centric shite-pedalling outfits have had the mike for far too long.
If you're feeling like a soulless pig over Easter and want to start making a difference, consider joining or supporting or advocating for an environmental organisation. Saving what's left of our life support system is valuable and admirable and our planet is the only place of worship that deserves our loyalty and respect.
