Upper Hutt State Of Mind – brilliant parody

with 2 comments

Credit, where credit is due, this parody by former Upper Hutt college students Vinny Rittossa and Emma Judd of Jay-Z song “Empire State of Mind featuring Alicia Keys’ is important for anyone to see if Upper Hutt was your stomping ground in your youth, past or present. In fact the contemporary take on Upper Hutt will have some realising it’s all too true.

The Chorus below so you can sing along

Upper Hutt

Suburban town where dreams don’t come true

There’s nothin you can do

now you’re in Upper Hutt

Homeless people will try to mug you

McDonalds will employ you

Lets hear it for Upper Hutt, Upper Hutt, Upper Hutt.

I’m sure Mayor Guppy, will be hoping like hell that this parody doesn’t go far,that is nationwide,  but its a great piss take by the two, and excellent production from the team involved, if there was a New Zealand Saturday Live, it would be top material. Chrrrr

Final word goes to OoshMultimedia

The video was produced entirely over a 2 week period, including writing, shooting, audio production, and editing. By basing the video around common associations with Upper Hutt in a light hearted and self deprecating manner, we have been able to successfully appeal to a youth audience and get them involved and interested in The Hutt City. This controversial approach is more meaningful to many youth, as they can relate to what is being said, when opposed to an ‘Upper Hutt is so wonderful’ form that they would take little notice of.
It’s great that so many people have taken an interest in the product, and are willing to voice their opinions.

Rimutaka Hill Road upgrade: Muldoons corner now gone

leave a comment »

NZTA opened up the $16.5 million developments at the top of the Rimutakas to two way traffic last week. With a weekend in the Wairarapa it was a chance to capture developments in this ongoing project.

This work has seen the removal of the notorious hairpin Muldoon corner (so named because of how tight it is), don’t think I followed politicians when I use to regularly take the motorbike over the hill for a blat. The Tin Hut wasn’t as posh either (normal watering hole)

But certainly from a travellers perspective whilst the works only shave seconds of the trip, it will make the journey a lot safer, with clear visibility to oncoming traffic, and most certainly for the large rigs.

The job is expected to be completed by the middle of next year.

Matangi Train on new inaugural fare paying run – Footage

leave a comment »

Well, it arrives. The new Matangi train is not an urban myth, as footage below shows it on its first run ex Wellington 9.00am. Only two carriages, as was also expected.

Didn’t get onboard, but had a sneak peak inside from the outside. Got to laugh wondered why the door didn’t open, you need to press the button, modern.
