Music Producer 'Bassy' Bob Brockman's big week.
Friday night drinks? Meet me at: Ponsonby Social Club, Ponsonby Rd.
Where I'll be wearing my new: Armani jacket, Converse kicks and new sunglasses.
And this weekend I'm planning on: Going sailing, out in the bay.
But first I'll need to refuel at my favourite cafe: Bliss, great organic vegetarian cafe in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn.
Saturday evening. If my dreams came true there would be a gig by: The Checks.
But if there's nothing else doing I'll probably just: Watch Netflix in the crib.
On my stereo/headphones right now is: Dark, Dark, Dark and Ruby Frost.
The books I can't put down are: The 48 Laws of Power, The Silmarillion.
The TV shows I take the phone off the hook for: Treme, Mad Men, Arrested Development.
The movie I've been dying to see: I'm Still Here, Joaquin Phoenix.
A non-cooking Monday night means takeaways from: Burger Wisconsin in Mt Eden.
Or a splash-out Wednesday night restaurant would be: Pure Food and Wine on Irving Place in Manhattan, my fave raw food restaurant at the moment.
