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.
I see his posts in the U2 forums too, yeah. I usually respect his arguments there, but find them to have an added layer of hostility that they could do without. Or if not blatant hostility, a holier than thou attitude. Maybe I look into it too much?

The thing about the JD/NO thing is that it's not the fact that he likes New Order more than Joy Division. I don't give a shit about that! I don't care if someone likes Linkin Park more than Louis Armstrong. The thing is, Laz DOES care. If someone's opinion is different to his, he doesn't see the futility in arguing about it. Isn't he like forty? What the hell people.

Yeah, I always fly Virgin. They don't rip me off like QANTAS, and they're likely to get me there alive, unlike Jetstar.

Dude, we've got some proper Bono-style howling winds going on over here...
You know you want to buy some nice cheeses and some crackers and bring them around for a Phail recording session.

And I've got to venture out sometime to take out the rubbish. Should be interesting.

Oh yeah, I remember the colouring books! I bet I still have some around, we used to fly on Qantas all the time when I was younger.

The Virgin crew does seem to be very perky, though I had figured most flight crews were. Particularly those Singapore Airline ones in the lovely traditional costumes, but they can get away with it because they're all astonishingly beautiful.

Bring your MP3 player around to aforementioned Phail recording session and you shall receive MP3s.

Oooh, that sounds pretty good.
Speaking of Phail, yet another weekend has passed and my bass hasn't left its case.

Just open a window... the change in air pressure will suck everything out into the street.

And bootleg DVDs? How's that CD working out for you, anyway?

Oh, no, that's probably true. It's just that in the EYKIW/WTAHNN cases, I'm on his side and generally think the people on the receiving end ... well, "deserve it" seems too harsh, but if you're going to be irrationally over-eager, you should be prepared for somebody to call you out.

He's forty? I always took him for being about 25. If he's 40, then that's just sad. It's sad at any age, really, but somehow it seems more sad if you're pushing 40.

Hey Ax, there's a bottle shop on a north corner up in Lygon street with a lot of good beers and wines. Can't remember the name, unfortunately. I think they sell pasta and stuff too.

Though given U-Wen's vanishing act, maybe making a Phail recording session happen in the coming week will be harder than I thought it'd be. And rather unsurprisingly, my guitar hasn't moved from its case.

I hope it's real wind, rather than that uneventful 55-75km/h on Wednesday.

But at least the bootleg DVDs can be done!

Sure you do. Bet you're still posting in an hour.

But hey, if you're serious, have a good one!

Yeah, I understand that but sometimes it's too much, a lot of new kids here probably have never been on another forum, or English isn't their first language, or whatever. In some cases they do "deserve it", but not always.

He's probably not forty, I may be thinking of someone else. But even if he's in his twenties, you'd think he's old enough to know better.

Sweet, though that's kind of vague. Are we talking the southern end of Lygon Street where it has no tram lines? Like around the dining precinct?
