this month

February is the month of Valentines, hook ups, break

through the airwaves that it makes you want to up-chuck a box of candy. You go around talking up the joys of being single all the while looking for your next future ex. Fear not loyal Source readers whichever way you swing we’ve got you covered. We’ve got music lyrics that’ll make you doubt that poetry still exists, tips on perfecting that online dating profile and if you’ve found Mr or Ms Right (now) we’ll tell you where to lay back and think of Queenstown. Beyond the love we’ve got other stuff in this issue that you’ll, um, love. The gig guide is full of goodness, the C-word reminds us to love Queenstown and the good folks at Greenpeace remind us to love the whole damn world too. Summer + Queenstown + all you good peeps, you gotta love that!

ups, roses and candy. It’s about quiet achievers, love song clichés, expectations, disappointments and broken hearts. That’s why this issue of The Source is dedicated to love. Love lost, love found, love kept and the love of lust. If you’re all loved up February is an awesome month - frilly underwear, at least one night out to a restaurant you can’t afford and the chance to drop a week’s wages on a bunch of flowers that won’t last ‘til the 20th. You get the chance to tell your sweetie they rock your world and they had you at hello and shit like that. For those playing singles, February sucks. It’s filled with sappy couples looking longingly into each other’s eyes and enough romantic pop-culture floating

• It is a matter of record that Canadian porcupines kiss one another on the lips. • Cleopatra used to dab perfume between her toes before meeting Mark Anthony. • Experts insist that the average person falls in love 7 times before marriage. • 9,000 couples each year take out marriage licences then fail to use them. • 10,000 marriages a year are directly linked to romances which begin on coffee breaks. • The longest kiss listed in the Guinness Book of Records lasted an incredible 417 hours. • The price of a new bride in Jamestown, USA when the English first settled was 120 pounds (or 54kg) of tobacco. • Men who kiss their wives in the morning live 5 years longer than those who don’t. • People are more likely to tilt their heads to the right when kissing.

Technology has played a huge role in romance. The telephone enabled dates to be arranged without face-to-face contact and the car extended the range of dating and backseat sexual exploration. In the mid 20th century, the advent of birth control as well as safer procedures for abortion changed the equation considerably and there was less pressure to marry as a means for satisfying sexual urges. It was possible for people to live together without marrying and without having to deal with children. Modern technology is making couples less romantic than ever, according to a new study. Today dates all over the world are arranged by text messaging. The average woman hasn’t received a romantic love note for 9 years and one in 20 people will say ‘I love you’ for the first time by text while almost as many rely on a phone call or email.

Love - and unbridled lust - has been getting songwriters hot under the collar since the first musical instrument was invented. But even the best have off days. And down the years, relationships have inspired some of the worst as well as the best tunes ever penned. Here, The Source compiles a Top 10 of toe-curling lyrics you certainly don’t want to be listening to come Valentine’s Day...

5. ‘‘I ain’t never seen an ass like that. The way you move it, you make my pee-pee go doing-doing-doing.’’ A definite low point for the gifted Eminem on his ultra-sexist track Ass Like That. 6. ‘‘Got to write a classic, got to write it in an attic. Baby, I’m an addict now, an addict for your love.’’ Adrian Gurvitz did write a classic - a classically awful lyric for his 1982 global hit Classic. I still find this physically painful to listen to. 7. “I always thought a fish could not be caught who wouldn’t bite. But you’ve got some bait a waitin’ and I think I might like having a little afternoon delight.” The Starland Vocal Band were lucky to get away with this thinly-disguised and truly nauseating piece of lyrical porn on their 1976 nod to daytime nookie Afternoon Delight. 8. “I would do anything for love...but I won’t do that.” Just what is it that Meat Loaf won’t do on his 1993 evergreen I Would Do Anything For Love? The mind boggles. It still does. 9. ‘‘I love you like a fat kid loves cake.’’ Sensitive rapper 50 Cent keeps it real on 21 Questions. 10. ‘‘Email my heart and say our love will never die and that I know you’re out there and I know that you still care.’’ Britney Spears actually released a song called Email My Heart. With words like that to sing, it’s no wonder she mimes at her concerts.

1. ‘‘Lucky that my breasts are small and humble so you don’t confuse them with mountains.’’ Eh? What on earth was South American superstar Shakira on when she purred this truly ghastly line on her 2001 worldwide smash Whenever, Wherever. 2. ‘‘Oh babe, I wanna put my log in your fireplace.’’ Smooth-talking Gene Simmons had the brass neck to warble this on Kiss’s heartfelt ballad Burn Bitch Burn. Subtle. And clever with it too, eh? 3. “Someone left the cake out in the rain, I don’t think that I can take it, ’cause it took so long to bake it, and I’ll never have that recipe again. Oh no!’’ Oh no indeed. Just one of the many unfathomable lines on the classic-but-bonkers Richard Harris/Donna Summer hit MacArthur Park. 4. ‘‘I am the flower you are the seed, we walked in the garden, we planted a tree.’’ All-girl rock band Heart overdose on bad metaphors for their hugely popular but unintentionally hysterical power ballad All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You. 5


the year, that’s really not that important at all. Traditionally the Valentine’s card was meant to be anonymous, a card you would send to someone you secretly fancied, the whole concept had an air of mystique about it. Nowadays you are forced to shower treats and meals on your loved one and make them feel special. Being the most unromantic person in the world I find the whole concept of Valentines Day pretty repulsive. It’s really just a vehicle to make money and play on people’s insecurities and loneliness. Queenstown’s restaurants will undoubtably be packed on the day itself as couples celebrate their relationships, and gaze into each other’s eyes pretending life is so great while the cash registers keep a chinging...

Ahhhh love is in the air.... yuk! Valentines Day is nearly as bad as the commercialism of Christmas. A card manufacturer’s dream, the amount of money that people are blackmailed into spending on presents and cards around the world must be phenomenal. It’s truly amazing to see how some people are completely brainwashed into buying utter crap just to make their partners feel better about themselves. Sadly the male half of the population will have to provide gifts and meals to their other halves or else be confined to the couch for days with no chance of a bunk up for ages. It really makes me laugh when I see my mates worrying so much about one day of

Some flatmates are like parking wardens. They prance around in the daylight with normal folk like they’re just ‘doing their jobs’ - when ultimately they are simply waiting for you to leave so they can bend you over and take you for all you’re worth. They even take photos! New Year and Christmas are peak times for thieving scumbags up and down this fair land of ours - certainly not a great time to be an insurance company. Be warned though - if your flatmate (or anyone associated with them) steals from you, your insurance company will swiftly give you the middle finger. Lock your doors. P.S. Merry Christmas. No really - I mean it, mine was excellent. Christopher Rae

Since when has it been ok to swear like a sailor? It seems like we’re becoming more and more relaxed when it comes to dropping F and C bombs. I’ve developed a mouth like a sewer and frankly, I blame you lot. If profanity actually started properly offending people again, we’d cut it out. We ‘the people’ have been given too much rope by you - ‘the people’. We now live in a world in which a movie (Kick-Ass) can portray an 11 year old superheroine who drops killer lines such as: “Okay you c*nts, Let’s see what you can do now” - and we love it. ($100 million dollars of love) I think I’ll just stop using sanitary words altogether.Then you’ll be sorry. CJ Busby

One Closing Time to Rule Them All?

Turn ‘em out in the streets before they get the chance to get liquored up. The truth is that 2am, 3am or 4am blanket closing hours won’t solve this problem; they’ll in fact make it worse. What causes trouble is friction between the pissed. When there’s a big queue for a taxi or a line down the road at the Night ‘n’ Day, that’s when trouble starts. By staggering the closures of bars, or better yet, letting punters trickle out of their own accord, you’ll reduce the risk of trouble. Remember the responsibility for drunk people in town already falls to the bars - it’s illegal to serve someone who is drunk. Blanket closing times won’t necessarily solve the problem - a better approach is surely a more responsible approach to promotion, service and hosting. As a community we have to take responsibility and remember that our party town rep keeps many of us gainfully employed, but a town rife with violence, vandalism and trouble will hurt everyone in the end.

The issue of 24hour licenses for bars and nightclubs has been around Queenstown for years. Should we be allowed to rage ‘til sunrise or should ‘The Man’ tell us that we should wrap it up by 2am? First and foremost let’s establish this undisputed fact - we have a binge drinking problem in this country and Queenstown isn’t immune from it. Every Friday, Saturday (and Sunday through Thursday) a good portion of the visitors to town and locals alike hit the town. In a town not known for moderation, why should it start at the bar? In an attempt to quell violence, public drunkenness, Shotover Street pissing and Earnslaw Park puking, the push is on for a blanket closing time. ‘Cut the kids off’ the cops and the council says. 7

The (Sexual) Adventure Capital of the World

February is the month of love, or at the very least lust. With Valentine’s Day smack in the middle of the month and this year being the best summer on record for weather awesomeness, the mind drifts to the joys of al-fresco fornication. The cool night-time air, the thrill of almost getting caught and the rush of doing the deed in the great outdoors is an intoxicating cocktail. Whether the urge to get it on comes deep into a Debajo night or you’re looking to add some sugar to your bedtime tea the time is now to take it outside. The Source presents - the ultimate Queenstown outdoor sexy-time tick list. The Rose Garden in the Queenstown Gardens - Red roses, Valentine’s Day, the feel of fresh cut grass on naked bodies and the ‘privacy’ of a quiet park after the sun has dipped below the peaks. This location gets high praise for romanticism and proximity to QT nightlife. As a wise man once said, “Every rose has its thorn” so with that in mind beware of a surprise prick in the ass - always a buzz kill when you’re not expecting it. The Basket of Dreams, Queenstown Hill - With the best view in town this location has stacks going for it. The pseudoalter of the basket will add a whole new dimension to that Pagan fantasy game you’ve had brewing at home. The virtually guaranteed privacy means that you can cuddle it out and watch the sunrise with your main squeeze.

The Gondola - Drifting above Queenstown with expansive views all around, it’s like the mile high club with windows. If you’re looking for foreplay, romance and postcoital cuddle - this is not the venue for you. With just under seven minutes from station to station it’s strictly business time. The well prepared couple can get the job done - just ignore the people going up the other side as you, umm, go down. I’m on a boat! - With a multitude of lakebound waterbeds around, taking advantage of the motion of the ocean is a QT must do. There are boats available to suit every style and sense of seafaring adventure. The classic is the good old TSS Coleslaw where you can play ‘King of the World!” on the bow. Those not willing to trespass and spend a naked-night-in-jail can opt for the swim platform near the beach.

We hope these tips give you a few ideas and add a bit of spice to your February. Remember keep it consensual, keep it safe, keep it fun and if you get caught, don’t blame us! 9

Ben: It sure was. We only came up with the idea about two months before it happened so we were kind of making a lot of it up as we went along. For a start, we’ve learned a lot about the consent processes necessary to put something like this together. The Source: This year’s event is happening six weeks earlier than last time. Was that a deliberate move? Ben: We decided it would be better to hold it in February when hopefully the weather is a bit more settled and there’s also a bit more daylight. The Source: About 110 fans turned up for the inaugural festival – are even more expected this time? Ben: Most of the people who came last year have already registered for tickets and are coming again, so that’s always a good sign. If we got an audience of 180 that would

Queenstown rockers The Lynch Mob are gearing up for the Southern Hemisphere’s highest gig for the second year running. The five-strong band made the record books last March when they performed Pink Floyd’s landmark album The Dark Side of the Moon exactly a mile above sea level at Cecil Peak, to fans choppered from Jack’s Point. The event – dubbed Over The Top Rock – made the national TV news and attracted punters from across New Zealand and overseas. On Friday, February 18, the group will do it all again – this time blasting out a selection of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits. Here, Russell Blackstock talks to guitarist Ben Lynch about the ambitious mountain-top show... The Source: Was staging last year’s gig a big learning process for The Lynch Mob? 12


The Source: Any other significant changes been made? Ben: We’ll be having a barbecue dinner at Cecil Peak instead of a brunch before flying out like we did previously. It means people will get more time at the site, which is a pretty spectacular setting. This time we should be able to stay out there until about nine o’clock before flying back. The Source: Is Over The Top Rock here to stay? Ben: It’s definitely something we want to continue with on an annual basis. The crew and some of the band intend to camp at the site the night before the gig and have bit of a test run for having fans stay overnight next year. If the camping experiment goes well, then it’ll give us a few more options to make the experience all that more memorable for people in the future. The idea is that the more we do this, the bigger and better it’ll get.

be the absolute maximum but a crowd of around 150 would be cool. The Source: You’ll be playing a wider range of Pink Floyd songs? Ben: Yeah. It won’t be just stuff from The Dark Side of the Moon. There is plenty of other classic Pink Floyd material to choose from and we’ll maybe do some acoustic stuff as well. After dinner we might even break out a few Jimi Hendrix numbers. The Source: You must be pleased your event has captured the imagination of people from all over the country? Ben: Only about a dozen Queenstown locals turned up last time but we were stoked when quite a few folk travelled from the North Island and there was even a few there from overseas. I know we have a big contingent coming down from Auckland again, so we are obviously doing something right. 13

we can’t believe you haven’t seen... Set against Paris’s oldest bridge, the Pont Neuf, while it was closed for repairs, this film is a love story between two young vagrants: Alex, a would be circus performer addicted to alcohol and sedatives and Michele, a painter driven to a life on the streets because of a failed relationship and an affliction which is slowly turning her blind. The film portrays the harsh existence of the homeless as Alex, Michele and Hans, an older vagrant, survive on the streets with their wits. As they both slowly get their lives back together, Michele becomes increasingly dependent on Alex as her vision deteriorates further. Fearing that Michele will leave him if she receives a new medical treatment Alex attempts to keep Michele practically a prisoner. The streets, skies and waterways of Paris are used as a backdrop to the story in a series of stunning visuals which dominate the film. 14

Was it Shakespeare or Elizabeth Barrett Browning who once said “Love is just a word till someone comes along and gives it meaning”? Neither actually. In fact, we’re pretty sure that sappy quote was the work of the Hallmark Card Corporation but it does raise an interesting point. If it’s people who give love its meaning, then it stands to reason that there must be as many types of love as there are people. We’ve done our research and it seems to us that romance and sex get far more than their fair share of airtime so to redress the balance, The C Word is giving romantic love the flick, offering physical love the cold shoulder and taking a look at another type of love that doesn’t get half the attention it should. We’re talking here about love for our community. Oh don’t make that face! We’re serious! Don’t you love living here? Of course you do. And if you love something, don’t you want to show your affection in some way? We’re all part of the community and so we’re all equally responsible for helping to make it and keep it a great place to live. Now of course there are many ways of doing this but we’re quite fond of small, random acts of consideration for our fellow man. Things like

remembering to take a plastic bag with you when you take the dog for a walk. Why not take two and fill the second one with litter that you see along the way? Talking of litter, we know that copy of the newspaper that’s been blowing around the street for the last couple of days isn’t yours but why not pick it up and put it in your recycling bin. Make sure you take a few seconds afterwards to polish your halo! Parking so you’re not taking up two spaces, not playing your stereo too loudly, not starting your lawnmower at 7am and returning your shopping trolley to the trolley bay are all winners on the thoughtfulness front. You can also do your bit by letting the council know if anything’s amiss. Tell us about that leak when you see it. The same goes for things like abandoned vehicles, overhanging branches and hazardous potholes. Give us a call on 03 441 0499 or register a request for service on the QLDC website: www.qldc.govt.nz. So let’s get out there and take a couple of minutes each week to show the love for our community, then shout it out loud “I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!” Nice work - now come here, give us a hug then let’s join hands and sing Kumbaya...

LIFE’S A beach Love the beach? So do we. Who wouldn’t? The clean water, the kai moana, white sand and chances are, even if you live in Queenstown, you’ve visited the coast in the last month. New Zealand’s beaches play a big part in the lives of those that live here, and are a big part of why people visit this country. So is it worth risking our coastlines just to postpone the inevitable (and extremely beneficial) shift away from fossil fuels to clean, climate-friendly energy technologies? As we’ve mentioned here before, Energy and Resources Minister Gerry Brownlee is bending over backwards to try and have new frontiers in fossil fuel extraction opened up in and around New Zealand, including off some of our most beautiful, but also most inhospitable, pieces of coast. The rights sell-off includes chunks of seabed around the Catlins, the Marlborough Sounds, and the West Coast of the far north of the North Island. Imagine the beaches in those areas covered in crude. As the BP / Deepwater Horizon disaster showed us, it’s not a far-fetched prospect. Deep sea drilling is prone to spills, and if there’s a problem, it’s damn hard to sort it out (divers can generally only go down 200

metres - the water in one of the zones that has already been sold off goes as far as 3000 metres!). The futile attempt to clean up BP’s spill took 6000 ships. New Zealand wouldn’t have a hope of mustering that many. At any rate, it’s a myth that a spill can be cleaned up. For instance, oil can still be found under the sand in Prince William Sound, Alaska, that’s left over from the Exxon Valdez disaster of 1989 – more than twenty years ago. But it’s not just the New Zealand way of life that is at risk. Burning fossil fuels is rapidly bringing forward the point at which a state of runaway climate change becomes a reality. Pretending that day is too far away to worry about, or that finding a solution to climate change is someone else’s responsibility, is not an option for anyone, anywhere. So, if you’ve been loving the beach this summer, you owe it to yourself, and the planet, to go to www.greenpeace. org.nz/oil and sign our petition asking the Government not to go after new oil but instead give NZ’s Cleantech industry the support it needs to compete in the rapidly developing clean global economy.

The Origins of Kissing

The most logical theory of the evolution of the kiss is that it naturally developed from the maternal kiss off the mother to the child. Ernest Crawley, 20th Century historian has traced the origins of the ‘kiss between lovers’ and noted that it was well established in Greece, Assyria and India but no evidence of the Ancient Egyptians going in for the pash has ever been found. 19th Century anthropologist Casare Lombroso supports this theory but also notes that Japanese people didn’t kiss each other passionately until the 20th century, neither did the Africans but we all know that the Greeks and Romans were all up in each other’s faces. And they were really on to something. From humble beginnings, the kiss is now well and truly part of our lives. The first kiss, the better kiss, the true love kiss the ‘I was really drunk last night kiss’. Scientists have tried to take some of the magic out of kissing, telling us that it’s all about endorphins and other brain chemicals, but the true romantics know that a kiss isn’t only a kiss. So Happy Valentine’s Day Queenstown! Collect your kisses at our Valentine’s Day Party at Winnies! [Erin]

Will love songs put sharks in the mood?

Zorro, a six-year-old zebra shark, had worn out his former tank mates at Sea Life Belgium. Hoping he would find new love, he was shipped to the Sea Life London Aquarium. The curator at the aquarium hoped he would hook up with a single shark called Mazawabee, but so far their relationship has been strictly platonic. To reignite Zorro’s mojo, marine experts are trying to seduce the sharks with seductive music, such as Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get It On. “Zorro has something of a reputation as a “ladies’ shark” and as Mazawabee has been ‘single’ for a number of years now, we really thought they would get together very quickly,” says the curator. “But it’s been months since their first introduction and although there are certainly signs that Zorro has been making advances, we would really have expected some serious mating by now.” “Research suggests that fish can not only hear music but can appreciate different tunes and melodies so we have decided to see if some good old fashioned love songs will get them in the mood!” 30

Gemini – You can do no wrong.

Sagittarius - You are a bit weird this month but in a good way...

Cancer – Ironically you are one of the signs that is least likely to contract VD.

Capricorn – Sid may be a lucky name for you. Or Brian. Aquarius – Abraham Lincoln was an Aquariun, nuff said.

how to fall in love

TOP LOVE LETTER ACRONYMS SWALK: Sealed with a loving kiss NORWICH: Knickers off ready when I come home BURMA: Be undressed ready my angel MALAYA: My ardent lips await your arrival ITALY: I’ll truly always love you

1. Find a complete stranger. 2. Reveal to each other intimate details about your lives for half an hour. 3. Then stare deeply into each other’s eyes without talking for 4 minutes. York psychologist, Professor Arthur Arun, has been studying why people fall in love. He asked his subjects to carry out the above 3 steps and found that many of his couples felt deeply attracted after the 34 minute experiment. Two of his subjects later got married.

HUMOUR

A guy met this girl in a bar and asks ‘May I buy you a drink?’ ‘Okay. But it won’t do you any good.’ A little later, he asks, ‘May I buy you another drink?’ ‘Okay. But it won’t do you any good.’ He invites her up to his apartment and she replies, ‘Okay. But it won’t do you any good.’ They get to his apartment and he says, ‘You are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I want you for my wife.’ She says, ‘Oh, that’s different. Send her in.’ .....................................................................................

David had a very pretty girlfriend named Lorraine who he liked a lot. One day he went to work to find that a new girl had started. Her name was Clearly and she was absolutely gorgeous! He instantly fancied her and after a while it became obvious that she was interested in him too. As he was a loyal man he couldn’t get involved with Clearly while he was still going out with Lorraine. He decided that there was nothing for him to do but to break up with Lorraine and date the new girl. He tried several times to tell her but he couldn’t bring himself to do it. One day as they were out walking, Lorraine slipped and fell into the river and drowned. David stopped for a moment, lamenting Lorraine’s sudden loss. After he had wiped the tears from his eyes he ran off smiling and singing, “I can see Clearly now, Lorraine is gone...”

Dear Abby :

A couple of women moved in across the hall from me. One is a middle aged gym teacher and the other is a social worker in her mid twenties. These two women go everywhere together and I’ve never seen a man go into their apartment or come out. Do you think they could be Lebanese? I have a man I never could trust. He cheats so much I’m not even sure this baby I’m carrying is his. I suspected that my husband had been fooling around and when I confronted him with the evidence he denied everything and said it would never happen again. I was married to Bill for three months and I didn’t know he drank until one night he came home sober. My mother is mean and short-tempered. I think she is going through her mental pause. ..................................................................................... EYE CONTACT: A method utilised by a single woman to communicate to a man that she is interested in him. Despite being advised to do so, many women have difficulty looking a man directly in the eyes, not necessarily due to shyness, but usually due to the fact that a woman’s eyes are not located in her chest. 34

It’s Time To Expose Your Digitalia With Adam Saraceno

of flesh that could be interpreted as sexy. Think of it from an onlooker’s perspective: “Is that a face cheek or an ass cheek? I don’t know but I want more!” Personal Statement: When ladies troll search results pages full of douchebags, you want their mouth to water when they read your blurb. Hence, use food terminology. You’re a “creamy Italian,” you’ve got “huge mussels” and you want a “succulent rump steak.” Be sure to note that you don’t mind artificial sweeteners. Age: Younger gals dig older fellas and vice versa. If your age is two digits, just switch ‘em around – as a 92-year-old you’ll be reeling in 29-year-olds like nobody’s business. If it’s 3 digits, you’re my hero. Interests: This is a tricky one. You want girls to think you fancy the same things as them, but you also want them to know you’re a man’s man. Try something like “Shopping… for grenade launchers” or “Having tea with friends… on a volcano.” Looking For: Never say what you’re actually looking for. This is especially true in your case since the girl on the cover of this month’s PC Gamer magazine is computer-rendered. Body Type: Regardless of how unfortunate your situation is, just reassure the girls that all the imperfections are obscured by hair. The rest is up to chance, as well as Internet censorship laws.

You’re single and desperate. The ladies don’t dig the Zelda tattoo like you thought they would. Your electrobluegrass fusion record didn’t sell. Karaoke is not an aphrodisiac. All these things that you thought would make you a babe magnet have failed miserably. V-day is right around the corner and your life is V-less. Thank God (Al Gore in this case) for Internet dating sites, where you can conveniently romance potential partners between World of Warcraft games. The allure of these services is that your profile does the talking, not you. And since your tactful speaking skills lie somewhere on the spectrum between Paul Henry and a fish, you better take this advice on how to make an e-dating profile that racks up chicas like Shane Jones, the Labour MP, racks up pay-per-view tabs. User Name: It’s a simple equation combine your hometown rugby mascot with a random machismo noun and the number of deep fried lasagnes you ate at Night ‘n’ Day last month. ie: HurricaineBroseph41.
