I cannot sleep in any sort of sitting position and wouldn't want to take the risk of assuming no one would be sitting next to me and I could lie down.
Ugh, this is the problem with a lot of long distance rail outside of Europe, in that it's often marketed at the rich leisure traveller rather than at the general traveller. I suppose because investment in passenger rail has been so terrible over the last few decades that it doesn't even BOTHER to compete for general travellers in many long-distance markets.

Eh, Crowded House... that's another Finn brothers machination, right? I've listened to their stuff on DI and elsewhere and never really got into them.

It does, but you're right.

3. I said at the time that it was nearly cut and I included it because I thought it fit, not because I'm a big fan of the band at all. God, most of the album it's from is hilariously bad and I made fun of Liam for it at the time I first heard it.

And your insinuations about my tastes are bullshit. It's like you intentionally want to cast them in as negative a light as possible.
1. Well, I mean, you called it bloated. I consider that a bad thing most of the time. Again, I'm not in your head, and your words weren't as positive about it as they could have been.

2. It's easier to find music from the last two decades? I'm sorry, but that's not a very good reason at all. Expose yourself to the decade more heavily and I think you may be pleasantly surprised.

3. I do not recall that conversation offhand.

The last line of your post is just stupid, and awfully hypocritical.

Godawful pop for 15 year old pseudo-emo girls.

Not really, unfortunately. Last time I looked (and this was last summer, but to be honest I can't imagine costs have gone down since then), it was about $700 ONE WAY for a train from Seattle to Wisconsin.

Flying home into my podunk local hometown airport is about $400-500.

I'm not rich enough to pay extra to avoid rage. Especially when it's costing me extra vacation days to spend the extra day or two traveling.

You could always hitchhike.

Well, yes, but I'd like to arrive at my destination alive and not in a plastic garbage bag full of limbs.
