Yeah, we needed somebody who's a nerd for the stuff trains run on and planes land on.

And awesome, hope the picture worked out.

Sorry to pike. But at least I don't have to do anything tomorrow so I can whore it up here.
Ha, whereas I do have plenty to do tomorrow. Drop off a government form (so that they give me money, so I suppose it's not all bad), do groceries, and maybe head into the city to buy headphones.

Have a good one!

I managed to snag some el cheapo headphones today. Maybe I'll be motivated and give In Rainbows a go tomorrow.

I'm not an asphalt nerd, thank you

Although the approach to Kona airport is pretty much this massive jagged black old lava flow. And it's not THAT old.

Can't really see it though...

I'm going to buy some good cordless ones. Probably the primary reason none of my headphones have lasted has been due to frayed wiring.

And I think there are many better albums you should try first.

I was referring to the general geological makeup of the planet that the asphalt/ballast-and-rails rest upon.

And I take it that's your favourite airport approach in the world then?

... I hate it when I have two lines ending with the same smiley.

Seeya Ian ... and everyone, actually. I'm still going to try to get to work early tomorrow, hahaha.

I've listened to In Rainbows in a fragmented sort of way... nothing's really stood out to me so far, but maybe it works better as a cohesive whole or something.

Seeya folks

Ali, here's the two sides of the railway cutting in Royal Park. I've really got no idea what's going on here. The eastern side of the line doesn't really have much happening at all, as you can see:



But the western side is lower and has all the jaggedy stuff and cracks and whatnot. The cutting's ... hmm, probably about 140 years old? Something like that. Maybe 150 or so.

Yeah, infrastructure can be pretty interesting too, I like seeing how it's done in different parts of the world. If I find a good spot, I'll often photograph it without trains as well as with.

I maintain that the opener of In Rainbows is laughably hilarious in a cliched "hurrr we're Radiohead" sort of way.

Have a good one!
