It's fairly ludicrous in many places... Not bad if you're not paying and you bag the shit out of it all the way through...

I'm not too bad, Bonnie... how's you?

Thinking of getting to bed, actually... although I didn't wake up till midday. Hibernation FTW!

GibsonGirl's fucking owned the Coldplay threads, though. I really wish she posted in here.
I really only see Laz's posts in B&C and I find that our tastes are pretty different and he tends to be like "you MUST like this instead of this blah blah blah" too often, to the extent that any competent spelling and composition and ocassionally thoughts in his other posts just lose me. I think it was he that said something like "you're retarded if you think Joy Division are better than New Order". Maybe not the exact words, but he went with this for like a whole thread. I guess you and I show our opinions similarly sometimes but we do it with a smirk and a wink, notso Laz though. He takes things to the bone and marrow.

GibsonGirl is awesome. What keeps her away from the superthread?

Bah, I'm jealous. I went to sleep at 5am and woke at 9am. It was too bloody light for my body to go back to sleep, so that was that for me.

I'm good thanks, plane trip wasn't bad at all, and I had a pretty nice tomato and bocconcini pizza tonight.

I would have slept in til midday if it weren't for the flight, I think I had a few too many beers for the last night in Melbourne!

Ah, yeah, I tend to outright ignore most of the threads he'd post in on B&C, so I don't get confronted by his attitude in that sense much. I'm mainly accustomed to seeing him post on EYKIW/WTAHNN, where he owns the over-eager and ridiculous fans with coherent argumentation.

But yes, I remember that JD/NO comment, I think I was involved in that thread. Personally, I can't fathom why anybody would think New Order were even a tenth as good as Joy Division, but each to their own. I prefer the dark post-punk stylings of Joy Division to the direction New Order went post-Movement. Dreams Never End is a fucking great song, though.

As for GG, whatever it is that keeps her from the Superthreads, we need to get rid of it because she needs to be here.

Ah right, I couldn't remember if you were going back today or yesterday... who were you flying with, just out of curiosity?

Is bocconcini those little round cheeses?

I've been on such a cheese bender lately...

So we were both drinking. 5 glasses of sauvignon blanc/semillion and 2-2.5 glasses of tawny port at this end. In the space of two hours.

Yet I was still perfectly coherent (seriously, go back and read my posts!) and thought logically and rationally. Khan made a remark about how I necessitate a new category of drunk. There are sad drunks, happy drunks, angry drunks ... and me, the nerdy and smart drunk.

OK, Bonnie, you're into interesting stuff, so you may appreciate this. Ever listened to the band Tinariwen? I have been completely hooked on their music for the last couple of days. I've seen it described as "desert blues" - basically, a bunch of folk from the middle of the fucking Sahara, a couple of whom happen to have electric guitars, making fucking amazing music. Lyrics are in the Tuareg and French languages. Apparently some of them were actually rebels at one point and one of the singers/guitarists was known to go into battle with a gun in one hand and his guitar strapped over his back. Their music got banned by the Malian and Algerian authorities due to its political themes.

Oh yes, I've heard of them. Never listened to the music, I'm afraid to say, though!

Well, we pretty much finished off the brie tonight, although there's still a block of cracker barrel in the fridge... and I'm not sure if I'm ready to share my nostalgia-cheese yet.


Dude, we've got some proper Bono-style howling winds going on over here...

The whole communal nature of African music really comes through. It's amazingly catchy and very involving. The multiple vocals on the choruses. The handclaps carrying the beat. The way they play the guitar. It's incredible.

Qantas, with my parents. I went with Virgin on the way over, with my brother. I usually prefer Virgin.

Yeah bocconcini is like young, rubbery mozzarella or something, probably not mozzarella but something like that, just put little balls of it on pizza, seasoned just right... delicious!

Cheese.

Sounds nice!

The last time I flew Qantas I was 3 years old, so I don't remember it... except for the flight attendant giving me a colouring book.
I had no problem with Virgin though, when I flew between Canberra and Melbourne. Although the crew was almost disturbingly smiley and perky and chipper.
