I was at the main stage and there was a really good atmosphere going on, and Rock It, the only song I knew and which I had only just found out was in fact the famous Rock It (To me it was the Break O' Day" song) went off somewhat. I meant to look into their stuff more prior to Pyramid, but never did. Can't say if the hype is justified, but I don't see what's especially great about them. Certainly not to the same extent Impala have justified their hype.

Basement Birds cover of My People was a highlight.

How's your own medicine taste, Australia?

Woohoo!

i love astronomy. i love how that star actually exploded a long time ago, but we're only just seeing it now.
Yeah, it was this sudden light, unmistakably an explosion. We had no idea how far away it was or anything, and how often it happened. It was small, so you would have missed it if you were looking somewhere else, but it was still big enough for both of us to go "what the hell was that?!".

I know it's not really Australia related at all but I couldn't be bothered making a thread about it.

I'm really quite jealous

One night I was in a good mood, or maybe a reflective mood, I don't know. But it was a clear night and I could see The Milky Way and I just stared up for ages, listening to Paul Dempsey, drinking a beer and smoking a cigar.

I saw the southern cross too, but I didn't feel a sudden urge to get a tattoo or car stickers or bash a lebo hardly Australian!

Oh you should be. Nah it wasn't much really, but it's still something cool to show off about. Think I'll be stargazing again soon, especially with the weather like this. Really gives you a whole new perspective on everything. Of course, dad was there too and he didn't give a shit.

That sounds fucking nice, I didn't even think of listening to music, maybe I'll throw a chair outside next time.

You better make up for that on Invasion Day!

You're a disappointment to this country.

Lebanese women are amongst the hottest in the world. I wouldn't say that the bashing of Lebanese men is purely a racially motivated thing, but often a means of trying to get access to Lebanese women. And why shouldn't we be allowed to engage in a relationship with them? Why should there be this barrier to them? Just my culturally insensitive two cents.

i would argue that Cronulla had absolutely 0% to do with getting access to Lebanese women.

but yeah Barney makes a good point: Lebanese girls are the new half-asians.

It's so brutal.

I love how we always avoid major floods.

I love their reactions, haha. AOWWWHHHH AHAHOLY SHIT. I can't imagine how I would have sounded while seeing that, though. Looks like a pretty new Forester, too.

I'm looking at the flood's wiki page, and the list of fatalities is obviously disheartening, but then you've got stuff like this:

"62-year-old male from Ballarat, Victoria who was a passenger in a vehicle that was swept away while crossing a flooded creek near Aramac on 3 January 2011. The 19-year-old driver of the vehicle was charged with dangerous driving.[45]"

Which makes me think, how many of these deaths could have been prevented? I saw those two teenage girls on the news who nearly drowned because they decided to body board in the waters. I don't wish to condemn the victims at all, far from it, but it's just an added shame to the whole tragedy because it should be common sense to not fuck around in massive rising floodwaters.

word. i mean we had a few floods in Werribee in December, and a few people got their boards or canoes out in the still water, but there's idiots who just take it too far.

that video has now just shown me how fucked up these floods are though. i didn't think they'd be that bad.

news also said the still water is causing/going to cause a lot of problems.

What's the best thing about Australia? (other than Mitchell Johnson )

I may be venturing over to your side of the world in a few months.

I am constantly staggered at the sheer stupidity of some people, maybe I shouldn't be, but I am

regardless ~ so many thoughts and prayers for all of those affected so far and really really crossing my fingers that the rain lets up and this monster doesn't cause too much more destruction

I have mates in and around the Lismore region and they are nervous, really really nervous
