do you take pics of trains in part so you can see the detail?
I frankly don't know! I've talked to Vision Australia about it and they say it's a good idea for me to have one, but I actually don't know the difference between types of canes. Terrible, I know. But I'll find out on Friday.

My friend who is legally blind and has a guide dog would have no problem reading here, though she may enlarge the text somewhat. People don't understand legal blindness all too well, and when it comes to my albinism, I'm not surprised; many of us (hopefully an ophthalmologist will soon say I'm one of them) are functionally legally blind, i.e. on controlled tests we don't reach the threshold for legal blindness, but outside we're absolutely fucked. On a sunny afternoon, I can often not see more than a metre or two in front of me.

And yes, I routinely find all kinds of detail in my train and tram photos that I never saw while I was actually there. Some of my best photos with multiple trains have been total flukes as I've only been aware the closest train was there.

They're all on sites like send space, mega upload, and rapid share.

I have downloaded SO MUCH stuff from Sordo, it's insane.

I think I've always intended getting into Post-Rock more. I have a Tortoise album, and that's about it.

Oh, and I see Flying Saucer Attack is listed there too. They're good.

I've got it, it has some cool stuff, but to be honest with you, I haven't listened to it that closely. Most of my plays of it come because it immediately follows The Earth Is Not A Cold, Dead Place on iTunes.

interesting. i guess i usually (mistakenly i know) think of blindness as total blindness. which is dumb as i've got extremely severe nearsightedness myself, but it's correctable to 20-20. but there's no way the army could ever draft me! i am hoping some day laser surgery can correct me as i hate hate hate it when i can't see.

so sunlight affects your vision and not just your skin? is it like, everything beyond a meter goes white, or what? is your vision usually blurred, like my classic nearsightedness? i would not be able to read normal font on this laptop screen from typing distance if i didn't have my contacts on.

it's no wonder you don't like movies or tv much.

Ax, do you have any idea where to download Swervedriver's first album? That has my favourite song of theirs on it.

lol that happens to so many of my albums.

i've only listened once. i think it's a cool project and i'd absolutely drop dead of excitement if u2 released something like it to see how the band would work under those conditions, even if the stuff sucked. i really liked the later tracks of the rescue the most and a few i wish they'd develop more. my boyfriend thought it was boring and watered down and such - it certainly doesn't have the same amount of resonance or whatever you would call it when they play the 3 guitars just so.

Sordo links to here: http://rapid share.com/files/72799923/Swervedriver_-_Raise.rar

I've never gotten a dud from Sordo yet, though sometimes the tagging leaves something to be desired.

Not ducky; quack.
