I think I'd prefer the cold, myself...

I'm physically healthy almost all the time.

My mental health has never been great.

I got shunted TWICE - once when the train was supposed to go around the loop but didn't, then after that getting to Spencer St station and finding out that despite what the schedule said, the train wasn't going to Melbourne Central. How bloody hard can it be to edit a computer schedule?! moranthei...
Ooh, really? I only watched some of SBS News tonight. Haven't checked up on the local news.

You know, I really don't think Connex deserve the rep they have in this city. Melbourne has the best public transport in the whole Southern Hemisphere, and although Connex clearly have some major issues, especially with staff, I think a lot of blame needs to be heaped on the state government for not improving the infrastructure quickly enough and for not ordering nearly enough trains. Even when they do places orders, the quantities are a joke!

EPIC PHAIL COLLINS.

That is the one song I did not enjoy in November. Everything else they played was fucking outstanding, but nothing can possibly save that track. It's their One. Their Ultra Violet. Their Red Light. All three combined.

Ah, but they exist in a state of quantum flux, being neither strangled nor unstrangled, until they are observed...

... and you sound like you wouldn't mind opening Thom's throat for a look.

That's true, but the problem, as you said, is that I could get better, more efficient customer service in Maccas. Our train breaks down, we don't find out until five minutes after it's supposed to have arrived - despite it breaking down an hour ago. There's a fire at MC station - they shut the entire loop down, and expect everyone to deal with it.

Also their public service announcements are about as friendly as a flying tomahawk, especially the "apologies" for delayed or cancelled trains.

Otherwise, they do a good job of putting up with idiots like Lynne Kosky.

Suppermassive Black Hole is fucking awesome.

You missed the shows in January though, they were both almost better.

Citzen Erased, The Extended awesomeness of Assassin.

Also, when they had that technical fuck up in November the had Ruled By Secrecy on the setlist, and they didn't play it. that is probably my favorite song from Absolution!
