I'm surprised it worked. Last time I ended up in Christchurch airport, half the fucking place was closed and the other half seemed to think it was the closed half.

I can't comment on exactly what you may or may not do to the toilet seats you use, but last time I checked, herpes can't get through skin.

I've never heard of anyone catching anything off a toilet seat.

I've heard of it. Which is why I don't use public toilets.

They're from Portland, I think, and their only gigs ever seem to be around OR/WA/Vancouver, and occasionally Western Europe. Bastards.

Haha, me too.

I laughed at so much of America, they must have thought I was nuts. Drove past a second-hand car yard near Atlanta that had one of those big scrolling LED signs... and it was quoting scriptures.

Apart from the toilet and the Pacific Blue check in kiosks the place looked trapped in the 70s

And Larry likes Westlife. I don't think the members of U2 are helpful for your defence.

Actually, I do know who they are. I have a friend who's totally into metal and tries to get me into it. The closest he got was getting me into Porcupine Tree.

WTF.

My favourite was a shop I passed north of Nashville. Sad Sam the Clown's: gas, fireworks, and beer on Sundays.

Mum didn't tell me myths like that... I guess I'll carry on naively until I catch syphilis or something... then you can all laugh at me

But Agalloch are awesome and atmospheric and bring in post-rock and lots of folk elements and are just generally one of my favourite bands.

Their new EP, The White, is very interesting. Quite folky. Pretty much no metal going on at all. Largely instrumental too.

When I was 6, I saw this rhyme written into the wall of a public toilet in California:

"Here I sit all broken hearted
Tried to shit but only farted
So I decided to beat my meat
Sorry I came all over the seat."

I didn't get what it meant back then.
Thank the lord all I did was pee.
