It's from the video for dancing in the dark. It's pretty much the most ridiculous thing ever, made even more ridiculous by a sketch from SNL, that I will now go track down.

The great thing is that, as much as it happens in the SNL vid, it really only happens ONCE in the original video

It was more than cool. I thought it'd get more reception, actually. Perhaps if I mentioned that U2 played a show there, Axver might prick his ears up.

I have no idea what that dream could mean. I sort of think the whole dreams-meaning-something thing is bullshit, at least it is with mine. But I actually do sort of wonder what that one could mean!

Come on, the hilarity factor is priceless... as is seeing all those tourists seriously buying stuff...

And before you all tell me off, I played the tourist to the Nth degree while I was away. I bought dozens of t-shirts and fridge magnets and keyrings and bookmarks and booklets and god knows what else. And it was great.

Totally random, but Ali, see the latest VIC state budget?

I am so fucking disillusioned by politics right now. Labour's doing absolutely fuck-all and I'm quite unhappy with the budget, but what is the alternative? The Coalition! Urrrggghhh. I'll take ineffective, useless Labour over them any day.

I've long since stopped buying touristy stuff, since I get home and do absolutely bugger-all with it!

Sorry, I didn't want to get all PLEBAn on you and go "ZOMG YOU HAD A U2 DREAM!!!"



I have all sorts of random weird dreams, although not so often any more. I did have one back when ATYCLB was new, where I tried to get Bono to explain Stuck to me, but he ended up trying to explain Walk On instead. And we got shot at after leaving Aung San Suu Kyi's house.

I think universal dream interpretation is bollocks... the same thing in a dream might mean different things to different people. You can't go around saying "Dreaming about volcanoes means that you're worried about your career" and apply it to everyone.
I would be prepared to believe that some dreams might mean SOMETHING to that person, but it'd be a highly personal sort of thing for them to figure out what all the symbolism was, if anything.

I'm too lazy to look it up right now.

I haven't seen/heard about the budget, no... I take it things are looking bad for public transport/education?

I don't want a coalition govt. either, but it might be nice if the Labour lot thought they were in danger of losing to them, and actually had a reason to, I don't know, DO SOMETHING.

I figured it was a once in a lifetime trip (I hope not, now!), and if nothing else, it was my first big trip overseas as an adult, so I figured I was allowed to go nuts, after planning and saving for years for it.

I've got an archive box full of it now... and it's good.

Public transport? Education? What's that? This budget is all about families, babies, business tax cuts ...!

There's an engine of an old coal train burried back behind my dad's house.

Hi phanan

I think the city of Adelaide was named after King William the Somethingth's wife/queen, in the 1830s.

(I was coincidentally looking up this stuff the other day... freakeh.)
