I'm going to be really pissed off if Win TV show the local news at 6:30 instead of The Cricket

It adds up quick.


The person I know who is making it in the dance industry is actually in Seattle. but she works another job to pay the bills.

And yeah, especially as his voice has sounded great lately, a capella Beatles covers aside, it would be amazing if they could break it out.
I think Vertigo's Pride, speaking in an overall tour generalisation, was best. Still not better than the studio version though. The 31 August 1984 and 1987 Old Grey Whistle Test versions are better than the studio version, though.

Do you know what she does? Like what company she works for, for dance?

are there recordings of this?

i think if they bothered it could basically be transcendent. like, the way screwtape thinks of sex.

Down here, on weekdays during the cricket, they still show A Current Affair instead of the first half hour of the innings. Because, of course, we need our daily sensationalised xenophobic paranoia.

Unfortunately not. But we know it was soundchecked repeatedly in late November and early December 1987 with the intention of playing it at the gigs on 19 and 20 December.

I'm hoping cause its a final they decide to forget about the local news and play the cricket. And the same with A Current Affair, which we usually get at 7.

I have both of those. Is the rest of 31 Aug worth getting?

You're right. You'd need to be naked, lubed, and tied up inside of that fort.

Huh, odd. On the Gold Coast, they also have a local news, but it's scheduled at 5:30pm so that ACA can stay at 6:30.

Personally, I think they need to just hurry the fuck up and give ACA the can.
