View Full Version : Put your oil-plant somewhere else!

11-03-2008, 02:15 AM
There's a waste oil plant in a town called Pukekohe, which the owners want to relocate to the peaceful country village where I live. It has been planned to be put in a field directly opposite my house, on the site of where a recently shut-down tavern is.

The decision could possibly go through because of the Franklin District Council's zoning rules. The site is zoned as "business". Because there is only one type of business zone in the Franklin District (which could anything from a shop to heavy industry), an oil plant can be zoned as business and could theoretically be placed 100 metres (about the same distance in yards) from a primary school, and 30 metres from the closest neighbour's bedroom window.

This video is one of the efforts my dad and I have made to publicise the council's insane zoning rules.

I shot and edited the video, at the direction of my dad, who is the main character in the film. We used a hired singer (Dave Alley)and a group of children from the school as the vocalists. I am the one in the rap section, playing the drums, and walking my dad at the end.

My dad (Mark Vincent) wrote, recorded and produced the music and the lyrics. My mum and I also had a small hand with the lyrics.

the format of hackneyed line / mini porno solo is perfect

also that rap is hardcore, that's a mad flow you guys have there

I'm forever embarrassed about the rap section. But a lot of people have found out about it and have praised me.
