Oh uh, yeah. Sorry, that's basically the only part of Lygon I remember.

Yeah, that's a fair call. I know I cross the line sometimes too. I figure there's just no point any more, hence my much lower participation there these days. As I've said before, I prefer the standard of discussion in these Superthreads. I just have a really hard time conducting a conversation with some of the hard-headed folk in WTAHNN who won't even consider that U2 might have an imperfection.

Lygon Street is surprisingly long, or at least I was surprised by how long it is when I first came here. But once the tram line joins it, it becomes more inner suburban residential.

Come on man, it's like the only thing that happens in the whole video.

Oooh, that's right. Yeah, there's a reason I've never bothered paying attention to that video.

God to admit, I'm rather proud of my slam of Queensland in the second and third paragraphs of the LJ entry I made just a little bit ago.

No way, that's their best video, Bono is really annoying in it.

Is there actually a U2 music video out there in which Bono is NOT really annoying, though?

Great entry.

Your criticism of the Gold Coast is spot on. And now there's going to be an AFL team there. Who the fuck even lives in Surfer's Paradise?!

I like reading that you seem to enjoy parts of Australia, at least. I don't really like Australia but I bet if I had moved to another country at a younger age I would have gotten more interested in it. Come to think of it, I probably would have learned more history of it somewhere else, too.

That may be true, but usually there's some sort of lame story trying to get around the whole thing. In the ISHFWILF clip there is no "oh shit did the circus midget or acrobat die?", the question instead is "would there really be any fun in hanging out with Bono in las vegas".

Thanks.

Yeah, it's an absurdity. Seriously, NOBODY lives in Surfer's Paradise. Walk along the beach of an evening and look up at all those stupid apartment blocks. I guarantee you there will be lights in a third of the windows AT MOST. And half of those are either tourists or rich wankers spending their annual two weeks in their flashy Gold Coast pad while they perv on 18-21 year old girls with nasty boob jobs and too much makeup. It's ridiculous.

Certainly I like living in Australia. If I didn't, I'd have long since moved! I wouldn't have just moved to Melbourne, that's for sure. There's plenty to make me uncomfortable, and a lot of the historical undercurrents in this country trouble me, especially as I now feel like I'm complicit in the problem as a member of the voting public. But let's be honest: the world is a shithole all over, and for all its ills, Australia's not doing so bad compared to a lot of places.
