Also, I didn't know you were a fellow Melburnian. For whatever reason, I was under the impression you were a Sydneysider.

Oh yes - fellow Melburnian. Actually I am a bit of le poseur as I was born in Geelong but ya know, sometimes you just have lie to get ahead in this world. I lived in Sydders for a year or two back in 05/06.

I also am a bit fan of Moorooka - not the place, just the name. Pronounced "moooooooo-rooka!' of course. Or Banoon - 'banoinoinoin' (like a spring bouncing kind of thing).

Ah, guess you had to be there.

Michigan City has an awesome 14 screen movie theater, but it costs $7
Laporte has a 4 screen theater, that is fairly old, but it costs $1.50 ($1 before 6:00PM)

So yes, you save a lot going to the Laporte theater, but quality wise you get what you pay for (but you're still seeing the SAME movie )
I would happily take $7 movies, on the east coast it's $9-$10 minimum.

Ah, right. Another one for the Melbourne/broader Victoria crowd then! From Jen and cin's stories in these threads, Geelong certainly doesn't sound like the greatest place on earth. I haven't been there yet, personally.

Oh, those are good. I'm also very fond of Mooloolaba/Moolooloolooloolooloolooba. When I lived in Brisbane, I was near another fun one, Indooroopilly.

Good news on the album and tour if true, and it probably is, because it is the same formula that they've used the last two times out - album late in the year, followed by the tour.

No surprise really, but still cool.

rapid share has gotten impossible to use, the letter entry thing is now "only enter symbols attached to a cat" but you can't tell cause they're all damn wavy and overlapping.

I can totally deal with that. Now, we just wait for the single.

I can't get into the clips of clips that some dude recorded when he thought he might have heard them from his bathroom window.

I have to venture outside. I don't wanna go.

Honestly, it surprises me just how long U2 wait between releasing an album and going on tour. Other bands I follow don't do that at all. A 4-5 month gap between album and opening night of the tour is honestly a bit ridiculous.

Rapid share has always been rapid shit anyway.
