One of the privileges of being on the dDub emailing list.

So today I got sent an hilarious email from Derek Browne, lead singer in dDub, and one of the the head honcho's of the New Zealand "Barbecue Reggae" movement.

Derek Browne, lead singer from dDub

Usually the sorts of emails I get from these kind of people are the, "Come-watch-my-shitty-faux-reggae-band-play-at-a-pretentious-venue-where-you-don't-actually-live-for-a-ridiculous price" kind. To these I hit the "mark as spam button", and carry on with whatever I'm doing. However this email caught my eye - It seems this guy has joined some kind of weird cult, and is spreading the "word" through the dDub email list. It's all a bit strange and inappropriate really.

Anyway here's the email for your enjoyment. I'm going to hell right?

From: Derek Browne

Subject: HI guys - info on a course

Hi there guys

Derek here, from dDub.
I just wanted to check in, and let you know about an awesome course that I have done and am now helping facilitate.
It's called Avatar.

Alongside pushing dDub, playing in the band etc, I've been learning some fantastic 'tools' through this course. The tools teach you how to operate in life with more clarity, fine tune how you want to experience life and how to live your life deliberately. It's a very cool way to learn about how you truly do create your own reality - in a grounded way. You learn how you are placing limits on yourself. You then learn how to get rid of these limitations and really get on with creating the life that you prefer.

Avatar is a simple way to explore your own 'blueprint' or set of beliefs. You see how you're operating your life through these beliefs, and really understand why 'things' happen to you.
And you learn how to stop and change unhelpful patterns and things that just 'keep happening' - for good!.
That was the clincher for me with trying this course out - the fact that any positive change you make stays that way.

So - I now help take other people through the course.
I thought I'd email, let you know - see if anyone is interested in checking it out. It's a nine day course, which you can do as a whole, or divide into 3 sections. There are free intro's running in Auckland, where you get to have an experience of the tools and a glimpse into your own blueprint of beliefs. The courses run internationally, but there are two a year in Auckland - one coming up in two weeks! - on May 1st. So - I am spreading the word out there!

I know not everyone is into this kind of thing - but if you are, and enjoy a challenge, you can check it out online at.

Email me back if you want to know more.
Derek :-)


  1. It sounds like Scientology's retard little brother. Only instead of recruiting A list Hollywood celebs it recruits aging Wellywood nobodies.
