Aug. 19th, 2010 @ 12:46 am Me again - this one's for the girls.
I have an online store selling reusable menstrual products, and I thought at least a few women here might be interested.

I specialise in menstrual cups (sometimes known by the brand name mooncup) and washable cloth pads at the moment, but may branch into other products, such as sponges and cloth tampons, at a later date.

I'm still getting up and running, so don't have every brand in stock just yet (international post is sooooo sloooooow), but I will be stocking these cup brands: Diva, femmecup, fleurcup, iriscup, lunette, ladycup, mooncup, Keeper moon cup, meluna, miacup, shecup, and Yuukicup (naturecup too when they are available). Some are here already, others are in transit.

I will also have as broad a range of locally made and imported cloth pads as I can, including some I make myself.

The website is www.environmenstruals.co.nz. (the pad related parts of the site are still under construction, as are a few of the more finicky details throughout).

If you're ever up in Chch I can offer personal consultation with samples and all to help you pick the right products for you, and can even save you postage and let you pay in cash :-) For everyone else, I'm very happy to chat online or on the phone, and can be very flexible on payment methods for those without credit cards or online banking.  I'll be heading down to Dn for the women's expo in Dunedin - my facebook fan page will probably have a discount coupon to get you cheaper entry, but closer to the time.

I hope to be saving you all hundreds of dollars each very soon.

*I'm also keen to hear from anyone who makes pads and pouches who may want me to stock their wares.

Current Mood: hopefulhopeful


I am a Masters student at the University of Canterbury, working on a thesis on comic book readers, superheroes and masculinities. I’m looking for people who read superhero comics who would be willing to take part in a group interview about what they read, and what they do/don’t enjoy about superhero comics.

I’m coming down to Dunedin this coming weekend, and am planning to run the group in the afternoon on Saturday 12th September. There will be yummy nibbles provided for anyone who wants to take part (and I can cater to any weird allergies and dietary needs if I know about them in advance).

I would really appreciate it if you could pass on my information to anyone else who you think may be interested in taking part in this focus group.

My website, www.superhero.geek.nz, has more details about my research, including contact details for my supervisors and myself.

Hi there,
I'm trying to scope out actors for a 48 hours film. 48 hours is a yearly film competition where you have to make a 3-7 minute film in 48 hours. It's being held this weekend so potential actors would need to be available this weekend.

Thanks heaps :)

The Growth Delusion: its relation to Peak Oil, Climate Change and Religion

Bob Lloyd, Director of Energy Studies, Physics Department


The present talk will give an update on the world energy situation and peak oil in particular and explore why the world is not likely to find a technical solution to both this problem and human induced global warming. In particular it will investigate the reasons we accept an irrational insistence on endless growth as a non negotiable axiom and suggest that the ultimate problem may lay in the way the human brain evolved. The seemingly close relationship between of our propensity to believe in endless growth and our propensity to believe in supernatural entities will be looked at.

Tonight, 7:15pm, St David lecture theatre

You guys should probably click that link and vote for The Tweeks. Three-quarters of the band members graduated from Otago Uni with contemporary music degrees not so long ago (the fourth did film) and now they're up to play at Big Day Out. If you liked them please vote! If you've never heard of them... well, please vote! Or listen to a song or two here before deciding.

Thank you!
