View the entire collection of our video magazine back to back until we stopped in March 2020 – Covid Time and we naturally stopped production as activities ceased.
Do you recognize any of these old buildings?
At least the traffic is lighter, and it’s still free parking.
Progress seems SO SLOW on the Hotel development. Original hold up was foundation problems.
Now just seems to sit there as a piece of modern art.

I have always had the desire to return to long form blogging but life is to busy at present…..
Thanks for now
The tourists have arrived for the World Cup Quarterfinals and at least one Hutt business is reaping the benefits. Campervans parked outside ground as it is filled to capacity.
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
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.
