Fuck, how did it get this late? I was planning on doing some reading and cleaning before bed! Ha.

Have a good one, Saddo. It's turned out to be a good night!

I'm sitting here talking to people like Saddo now because places we've wanted to post have often coincided and we've gotten on well. The same can't be said of a tute at uni. I don't want to bother some poor sod who doesn't want to be bothered, to delay them or intrude or anything. Of course, this is faulty logic because they might be worried about the same thing back to me, and when I'm reading and wishing someone would talk to me, someone might be thinking that "hey, that guy's reading cool stuff, I'd love to say hi but I bet he wants to be left alone". I recognise this. It doesn't mean my desire not to bother anyone is reduced, though. And now I feel bad because I think I've ruined this thread and should just shut the fuck up. Life's life. I'm more than capable of dealing with it, and I've said far too much here anyway. I'm normally not this bad, but fuck, the last month has been bad in so many aspects, not just friendship-wise, that it's hard to keep my head up sometimes.

Ax, I didn't mean that you ruined the thread. I was using hyperbole to make my point. You're obviously a good guy. You obviously really want more friends in your life. You obviously have a personality/fears that make that difficult for you. That sucks. It really does. But I think that everyone has weaknesses/fears that hold us back from SOMETHING that we really want in life. The question becomes are we willing to choose to step beyond our fears and go for what we want. I think you should. I think it will pay off.

Hey, phanan, you might be interested in this interview with Steven Wilson from the guys at OzProg. I love SW's slam on the big record labels.

Also, I've got to say that I think And The Swallows Dance Above The Sun is the most criminally overlooked, forgotten song. Despite its really weird sample at the end, it's a fucking great song - well structured, well sung, and catchy. I actually prefer the more raw version from the Love, Death, And Mussolini EP.

Anyway, before I die of sleep deprivation, I'm out. Have a good one, everybody.

I'm getting frustrated enough with my situation that I'm going to do something about it. I don't know what, but damnit, I'll work out something and won't be sitting here during the winter holidays in the middle of the year wondering why the fuck I'm just hanging out on Interference with nowhere to go. At least the discussion in this thread has given me some ideas and some confidence.

Anyhow, this time I'm out for real.

The ironic thing is that, in the US, Porcupine Tree are on the Atlantic label, which is part of - you guessed it - Warner Bros.

And I love Swallows, but I've never heard this other version that you speak of. I'll have to scope that one out.

I'm thinking about starting a covert troupe of ninjas. Who's in?

We'll be following VanDame's training in Blood Sport.
