So, Screwtape starts with Pink Floyd's Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts I-V. One of my favourite songs of all time, and an absolutely amazing opener.

I remember the first time I heard this. It was September 2003 and we were driving all the way from the Gold Coast to Melbourne. It was my first visit to Melbourne; we were seeing Brisbane vs Collingwood in the AFL grand final as Mum and Alan are big Lions fans. So we got an early start as we planned to do the drive in a single day. I half-slept in the back seat, and as we were cruising through northern NSW, Alan put on some Pink Floyd, the Pulse live album that opens with SOYCD. The sun was just dawning, and this song sounded incredible. I've been a fan ever since.

How's Middle Intercourse? Fast or slow???
Am I the only person on earth who doesn't like the beach? Maybe other albinos don't ...

And being Middle Intercourse, I'd guess it's in the middle between fast and slow.

Actually, for the first 350 posts or so, this was a really fast thread, it was good.

You don't like the beach? It's the wild west coast....I love how rugged it is....so 'cleansing' just to walk along......

Ooh so I missed the fast intercourse?

Wait, WTF, Screwtape? What the hell weird SOYCD is this? It's more than just Parts I-V! It's going into VI. My copy of I-V on WYWH is only 13:40 long. Yours is 17:34.



(Bloody hope he reads back to see my commentary.)

Depends. I mean, I like coastal areas, especially rugged and isolated ones. But just going to the beach in Melbourne or the Gold Coast or whatever is pretty fucking boring and a recipe to get sunburnt.

And yes, you should've been here about three hours ago; Intercourse was pretty fast then.

I've only listened to a shitload thanks to U2VT.
10/1/90 is on my list


GLUEY!!! How are you?

And everyone got worn out and went to bed

I think Jen picked up some nasty virus too...

We went past this gorgeous little beach yesterday, looking for leafy sea dragons... all I know is it's somewhere between Sorrento and Portsea, and there were some expensive-looking houses nearby!

When I was in New Zealand last year, I visited some really lovely seaside towns outside Nelson on the western side of Tasman Bay, and it just amazed me that even in the little isolated places a long way from anywhere, there were these huge, expensive, glamorous houses.

People probably only live in them for a fortnight a year too ...

Ugh, yes. Living on the Gold Coast has probably ruined my impression of beaches a bit. Surfer's Paradise has got to be one of the worst places in all of Australia.

Well, I got a phone call, so that interrupted listening to Screwtape's playlist, but I know the first two songs extremely well so it doesn't hurt too much, and I at least got to hear the segue from SOYCD to The Moon Touches Your Shoulder, which works really well, just as I expected.

This is so atmospheric and beautiful.

I'm so used to hearing Prepare Yourself after The Moon Touches Your Shoulder that going into The Police's Secret Journey feels jarring, even though the segue flows!
