'Sides, if it had been a Monash architecht, it would have fallen down by now. That gravity is a bitch.

For audience taping, it would be far too quiet, and if the wind's up at all, it fucks you over (just see the Hershey rehearsals tapes; the one with Acrobat is taped from outside the venue). A number of soundcheck bootlegs are recorded outside the venue too.

But if you're doing IEM or whatever, then yeah, that's quite viable to do outside the venue. Saves the hassle of trying to get the technology through security.

Not that security gave a damn about much here. We EASILY got in recording gear and cameras.

Did you just own Monash?

Here's the other end of the staircase. I just about cracked up when I found it.

Probably for the best. I don't think I saw a single tram over there... although you may find the endlessly and wildly varying gaps between train carraiges and platforms to be quite fascinating. You can get t-shirts with "Mind the Gap" on them.

Yeah, most tram networks there have been torn up. I believe Blackpool has one, but tourist oriented. Some cities have light rail networks, like Newcastle. Nothing at all like ours.

But British passenger rail leaves anything here for dead.

Hey, that place sucked five years out of my life. Sure, I enjoyed most of them, but I know the place is far from perfect.

Besides, I figure you're owning UniMelb by even posting those pics.

I figure that as an Arts student, it is my duty to pwn anything pertaining to the Medical faculty.

On a similar note to the Melbourne University staircase, there's this useless ramp to nowhere on Dynon Road near North Melbourne railway station.

Well, I'm glad it's not just me.

I'm going out to some comedy thing tomorrow night, so I'll have limited searching time after that... but I have a Melways (maybe 5 years out of date, sigh), so all will be well.


Crap, I need to be asleep now.

Thanks for the distraction!



Does google maps show car parks?

There was a fierce rivalry between the Halls 'Green Week' Team and that of the Engineering students. They suck.

Of course, I hate Green Week anyway, but still...
