Harley spoke and performed poetry at TEDxRuakura 2016, here is the audio from his performance.
"Through poetry Harley hopes to draw attention to a few of humanity’s demons, in order that we can address them. Take globalisation for example, neither good nor bad, it’s simply a progression of our global civilisation. It can be “a tool for good or evil”, says Harley. “On the one hand it has given us sweatshops, but on the other hand it has given us as individuals in the first world the power to affect real, positive change with small day-to-day decisions and purchases.”
This new outlook on life has inspired and motivated Harley to help others experience the shift for themselves. Harley knows the power of ideas to change, and that it’s up to us to decide what we want to do with this power. “We need to create a new system that values life over money”, something Harley admits is easier said than done. Perhaps we just need to recognise the gravity of our situation, and need a little push in the right direction."
A short little bonus episode for loyal listeners taking you behind the scenes of 'Podfest' the podcast party Harley hosted for The Chris & Sam podcast's 100th episode.
We chat with fellow podcasters and super fan Jeremy Howson and also discuss filmmaking with Allan George from Sideway's Productions. Harley's drunk, Guy's sober someone mentions a forest of dicks at one point. Not a proper episode but something to tide you over, an appetiser a snack before we shortly return for the next full episode. Enjoy.
On this episode we share some good news and some bad news and talk about the rollercoaster that is indy filmmaking, the difficulties of balancing a life while making movies and what balance needs to be struck. Plus is Guy ‘On the spectrum’? Harley thinks possibly. We also talk about editing our second feature film 'Older' and how small jobs become big jobs. What should Pigville should shoot next, another movie, or a new web series? Harley also takes us on another poetry adventure where he deals with his first hecklers and gets a shot at becoming the undisputed Poetry champ of New Zealand. Plus there’s the return of our favourite section ’The Troll Hole’ and it could be the greatest Troll burn yet, you don’t want to miss this!
On this episode we talk about the 48hr film competition and why Guy is not participating. Harley is going to Hollywood for the premiere of our new short film 'No Caller I.D.'. We talk about making feature films vs making short films and Harley's adventures in a slam poetry competition and what he doesn't like about other poets. We've got spoiler free movie reviews of 'Train to Busan' and 'Blair Witch' and discuss sequels that pretend not to be sequels. We also look at the phenomenon of getting sick of drinking when you're old and how sexist on-screen kisses end up being. Plus we encounter our greatest Troll yet, a super troll who is ruining our thumbs up ratio and apparently masturbating a lot. LIKE A LOT. Hear all about it folks and help fight the good fight against masturbating trolls by tuning in!
In what is sure to be Niam Hegarty's favorite episode so far we talk about a mystery poo that showed up on Harley's doorstep and what Harley's detective work as a Poo Splatter Analyst have indicated the culprit to be. It's a tale fraught with suspense and danger, who is the poo architect? And will he/she strike again? Also Harley had an amazing meeting with his agent in which she recommended he be more like George Costanza, plus Guy could be one step closer to his pro wrestling dream with a potential upcoming bout at Rainbows End of all places. We pay tribute to Gene Wilder in 'Who's Dead This Week' and shout out some amazing supporters. Could this episode BE any more compelling? Forget Rainbows End, THIS IS WHERE THE FUN BEGINS!
On this episode of the podcast we broadcast from a secret location quite literally 'on the road' so Harley doesn't get in trouble for disturbing his new flatties with our uproarious banter. We talk about our most recent web series application and the difficulties involved in writing proposals for funding. We then break down an altercation with Harley's new neighbours, things got heated, there was a chance of Harley losing his shit. But what exactly did we do that got them so upset? And who's really in the wrong? It's neighbours at war the audio edition with lots of inappropriate jokes and swearing! How could you not?
Woah dude, on this episode Harley gets called out for making racist comments on Facebook and maybe, in a new poem. What exactly is his beef with the French? Is he misunderstood?
