Oh, some people do hold gimmicky Christmas in Winter things. Often to keep the kiddies entertained or to have a charity fundraiser or whatever.

Personally, I think it's just not Christmas if it's too cold outside to have a barbecue and play cricket.

I imagine Daniel's down here in Melbourne visiting his girlfriend as he usually does over the weekend.

And I can't believe the Cymbaline voters. Then again, I just voted for The Final Cut, not Several Species. See the thread for my rationale.

Ah i see. He hails form Sheppareton or somethin yes?

Can't blame you there. If the Final Cut is best song on The Final Cut, then I'm never buying it. The songs I have from it are boring as hell.

We haven't had a white Christmas since 2004. And it was really white. We had a blizzard that dumped 14 inches of snow on us (that's what... 35 cm?) It was crazy but awesome. Especially since normally we're lucky to get more than two inches here.

Yeah, he lives in Shepparton. He needs to move his arse down to the big city.

The Final Cut is a complete waste of time. I seriously cannot find one notable moment. It's just complete dullness. Some parts are genuinely bad, but most of it is nothing more and nothing less than dull. So yeah, don't fork out for it, especially as you're the only person on earth who still believes in saving up for each album! I wouldn't even suggest anybody waste their time DOWNLOADING it, let alone buying it.

Now watch as Steph hunts me down and kills me for saying this!

it's all true though... and to think I was going to get into his solo work... if it's like that I might buy it if I develop insomnia or something...

Dave Gilmour for me


Plus I have HUGE respect for Rick Wright.

Any Colour You Like is THE best instrumental I've heard, just edging out Speed of Life by David Bowie.

In 2006, the Dandenongs outside Melbourne actually had a white Christmas! I don't think it snowed much, but the simple fact of the matter is that it SNOWED.

And I've never lived anywhere where it's snowed while I've actually been there.

Really? I went down to Stony Point on the train and in the southeast and CBD I just encountered light spitting.
