Ah, right. Yeah, some of my uses are similar to that, like you can guarantee if I'm feeling like shit I'll make a rare friends-locked entry, and books and music and concerts get reviewed in various ways. Might review some wine soon, even. I've also been known to use it as a place for setlist thoughts now and then. It is, if nothing else, absolute proof that I am a nerd. Nerdy Nerd Nerd-Nerd McNerd.

Contradiction is balance. - three of the latest four entries, the "Bringing New Zealand Back on Track" series. Really, the one big problem with it is that even if somebody who isn't into railways cared to read it, they'd probably quickly get put off because I suspect you'd need a good grasp of New Zealand's geography to avoid being thoroughly lost. I suggest starting with the end of my entry on 24/06, as I sarcastically introduce the series, then the series itself is 27/06, 28/06, and 09/07. Feel free to add me to your friends list too, if you'd like.
Aww, what is it about the city that makes you sad? If you wanna bitch about it now, anyway. If not, I can totally sit tight for the journal entry.

Yeah, that's the sort of thing I end up doing, sometimes I'll just make a private rant if I certainly don't feel like annoying anyone on the f-list! Nerds are cool though. I'm a nerd and proud.

Thanks! I'll check this out sometime, even if I do end up totally lost since I know literally nothing about New Zealand except the name of the country. Seriously. I added you.

Hey to the people who just came in!

I've been rather delayed as I was fetching leftover shishkabob veggies.

Yeah. I mean, the whole album as it is blows me away. Like I say, it's my favourite, full stop. The entire experience of it does something for me that no album does, and has consistently for years. No matter how jaded I am with U2, the opening notes of ASOH remind me why I have nearly 60,000 posts on a U2 fan forum.

But if it had the b-sides ... oh god. Bass Trap, The Three Sunrises, Boomerang II - it would be in another league altogether.

I'll help you out there.

Then again, The Unforgettable Fire still is my favourite album by anybody, ever.

I'd still remove Elvis Presley And America. Keep everything else, add those three plus Love Comes Tumbling.

And now boys and girls, I need to listen to the last three Retro playlists before the rounds continue tonight.

So yes, I'm about to spam the thread with my playlist ramblings.

bono_212 is up first.

Seriously? I love Elvis Presley and America. It's definitely one of my favourite tracks on UF.

Hey BoMac and welcome back, Pahana.

Ah, more running diaries? Fun.

Will have some of my own in the coming days, I suspect, for DI V lists.
