As to how hard it would be to visit Uluru, pretty hard, I'd say. You'd have to drive for a few weeks and then when your car boiled over, hike on foot through the wilderness until your water ran out... which it would... and then pray for a miracle. You'd be like the Trash Can Man. 'Cibola!! My life for you!!!'




Yeah ok, obviously it's not that hard. People go by plane I guess, to the nearest major centre which would be Alice Springs.

Sounds daunting.

As to how hard it would be to visit Trump Tower, pretty hard, I'd say. You'd have to tweet for a few weeks and then when your saddled squirrel died, hike on foot through Mexico until your Pabst Blue Ribbons ran out... which it would... and then pray for a Hamberder. You'd be like Matt Damon. 'Maaaatt Damon'

You also can’t (and shouldn’t anyway) climb it.
Of all people, I am a pretty shocking one to have not known about something like this. I wouldn't want to climb it, but see it? That would be awesome. Sounds difficult, though. Might be why I haven't heard as much about it.

Like Cobbler said, you guys are very well known for the harbor and opera house over here.

Had never heard of Uluru. As far as I know, the most famous Australian landmark is the Sydney Opera House.

He could use some Foster's as polish. Stuff has many uses according to Australian lore.

Is Autumn Sweater a well-known Yo La Tengo song? My partner just has Spotify playing and it's really, really nice. I've never heard it before.

It reminds me a lot of this song, because of the synth (organ?) melody and the hushed vocals.



I'll never forget the first time I heard this song. It was the same night I heard Passion Pit's The Reeling for the first time. We were in crummy motel in Kingaroy, Queensland for one of my cousins' wedding. It was nighttime and I was down. Both songs were playing on Rage. They really spoke to me that night and I've carried them with me ever since.

I'd say it's their best-known song, or at least in the top three. Really excellent song from an excellent band.

Are you referring to the melody? There is something familiar about it, but I can't place it.

I also strongly believe I have heard the little riff on Memorial Day somewhere before, and I can't place that either. The drums remind me of Warpaint, but that riff I swear is based on something else.

Also, an excellent album start to finish. I never know which one I like more, I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One, And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out, or Painful. They have such a fantastic discography. I've never been able to catch their epic Hanukkah shows, but will try to do so this year.

Heart is easily the best IMO. But they have a fair number of great albums.
