"sacred mountain"

Peter Jackson is having a terrible year.
The Hobbit does indeed appear cursed, first the studio nearly goes broke then del Toro pulls out then talentless talent get manipulated by an Aussie and the studio threatens to pull out then his guts explode and now to Cap it all off the central north island Maoris decide it is their turn to poofinger the movie by declaring Ngarahoe off limits due to it being "sacred".
I expect the sacredness has a price of course.
Why he does not film the whole thing in a studio and get the cgi team to paint the rest in is beyond me.
I would put in a link but the iPad cut and paste feature is more of a mystery to me than why Jackson has not quit this place.

Of course it will have a price BB - just like the taniwha did on that stretch of Waikato highway a few years ago.

Ngarahoe is bound to become less sacred with big sacrifices of studio money.

Are Maori the greediest and most self-absorbed ethnic group ever?

The mountain is the perfect shape for Jackson to tell them where to stick it.

I dunno mawm. Aging jappies are horribly self pitying and whiny. The ones who ran away can be anyway.

What ever happened to flinging a virgin into the crater to appease the taniwhas?

I think you mean "jaapies". Japs are very polite and humble people.

They've decided to use Egmont instead BB. Probably fewer shekels required.

The answer is very simple.

Let the Bros keep Ngarahoe.

Go make the film on that other mountain, Ngaruahoe.

Mt. Ngauruhoe may be available.

Don't know where that other one is.

I guess, having seen Key and English bend over and spread 'em for Hollywood execs, the "bros" intend to do the country a favour and recover some of that tax money the govt decided we could do without.

Forgot to mention

The best way to find an Abo sacred site in Australia is to put a drill bit into th ground.

BB: you don't get to cut and paste unless Mr Jobs gets to clip the ticket. Perhaps if you write to Apple and request authorisation they'll tell you how much it'll cost to permit the paste job...

I'm pretty sure that electricity, internal combustion, etc. are white man's magic and therefore sacred to Pakeha.

I had a pee at the top of the sacred mountain a few years back and it didnt seem to mind???

This is nothing. It seems National are giving the foreshore, sea bed and 200 mile zone to the Bro's. Islam offers a hope in that it is violent and intolerant so will at least be competition. Sonny Bill for Iman. We are a basket case.

Peter,
I have a mountain you can use. Give me a ring to set up a meet and have an exchange of ideas around suitable koha.
