I did. This week is a remembrance of the worst day of my life. I'll change it back, eventually. For now, this is a tribute.

Mia.

Also, hi! I didn't notice you were around. Though I'd kind of disappeared myself ...

And I just noticed your post was a whole hour ago. Wow, I got distracted that long? And the thread's not advanced?

I'm around.



You've been quiet on the DI front so far...

Honestly, I've only listened to two tracklists. Most of my listening time has been taken up by working on essays and shit, and when I do that, I have specific music I listen to - mainly Pure Reason Revolution.

AtomicBono's list is really quite good. Only some of the second part lost me.

Not much really. Reading railway stuff (and getting totally absorbed in it), listening to DI tracklists, writing an LJ entry because it seems Melburnians and only Melburnians mistake me for being a woman and it's beginning to bug me, etc.

Yourself?

Re: DI, I am disappointed that AtomicBono chose to represent Dredg with a song from what is by far their worst album. Some of this song isn't bad, but the verses do nothing for me and drag, reminding me why I can't stand the album as a whole.

Awesome.

I'm rather enjoying being an unemployed/semi-employed-by-the-Royal-Historical-Society student myself.

And this weekend, I have no pressing assignments to attend to, so I'm enjoying kicking back and doing fuck-all of consequence!

Yeah, AB's list is much better this time out. I enjoyed quite a bit of it.

On paper, it looks to me to be one of the best. So far:

1. Screwtape: A/A-
2. AtomicBono: A-
3. PFan: B/B+

Starting BonoIsMyMuse's tracklist now. Don't like this Springsteen song at all.

Bleh, exams. That's what I like about History at Melbourne University - it has no exams, it emphasises research and analysis. Just the way I like it.

Oh God, just looking at BIMM's list, is it going to take until the ninth track to get to a song I'll enjoy?
