Oh, the funky little ... storm, I believe it's called, has made its way to the southeast now?

Rather pissweak by Queensland standards, I must say.

Yeah, nothing compared to a tropical storm, but for here, that's pretty bloody good already.

Gee, it's quiet. Where'd everyone go?

I think I might have an early night tonight, horror of horrors.

I didn't want to come right out and say that

But yeah, the concept of the movie turned out to not be exactly what I thought it would be. The main character is not even the big U2 fan in the movie. I mean, he acknowledges that they're big, but the main reason he wants to bring them to his town is in honour of his older brother, who was an independent concert promotor, and always wanted to get U2 there, but died before getting the chance.
It's actually the gangster guy's son that's the obsessed fan, but basically the whole movie is them trying to get investors and get the concert set up within the seven day limit. It was actually pretty interesting. More about concert promotion in general than about U2.

Started on your Terrorism essay?

When's it due? I tried to get the reader, they told me that they were out until after Easter. So I'm pretty screwed. Also, I have no idea what's due in when.

This is the postwhorehouse. We do come out and say that.

And huh, interesting. It still just seems really weird, making a movie about trying to get U2 to play your country, but the way you describe it makes it seem reasonable enough to possibly be watchable. Could be good for a laugh if nothing else ...

I believe it's due 14 April. And it's only a document exercise of 1,000 words.

Haven't checked. Was going to do that tonight! Let me know if you need to borrow my reader or copy anything from it or whatever. I believe there's a copy of it available in the library, actually.

Okay, it's like 7 am. I should probably sleep.

It's been great here in Bastardland

Night, Aussie-Kiwi-people (where it actually IS night)

Fair enough, where do we find out about topics? And don't worry, I'll get a reader and speedread through it Monday when uni resumes, but thanks for the offer!

Fucked if I know. Think it's in the reader actually. Let me check that now and get back to you.
