Isn't Strauchnie a victorian?

The best part is that Edge broke a guitar string during the 2nd Trip, so both sucked.

I'll take whatever memories of Lovetown I can get.

I most want the memories of anybody who got into the soundcheck at the 16/10/89 gig in Melbourne. UNKNOWN SONGS. SHE'S A MYSTERY TO ME. DANCING FUCKING BAREFOOT, NEVER EVER PLAYED LIVE.

Haha, that's hilarious.

NSW = OWNED.

Whether I mean you, owned by two crappy Trips, or New South Wales owned simply by the rest of the world, is really up to you.

I love the German Arms - I've only been there once though, for my cousin's 18th last year. All I know is that by 1pm I was already rather inebriated on delicious beer, and couldn't play pool worth a silver possum.

I had it in my head you were about 23. As for me, back in grade 12, my best friend referred to me as "a 47 year old stuck in a 17 year old's body" because I'd sit around and read Dante's Divine Comedy or Anton Chekhov plays during lunch rather than doing ... whatever stupid shit everybody else was doing.
Why thank you.

You have a most extraordinary taste, sir - I say we should all toast glasses of sherry to Not Being Bogan.

All of the above, for the sake of not having to really dwell on it.

Interesting with Melbourne's history though, I thought it was a little more upper class than the rest of that mess in the east, but thanks for confirming it.

Let's just all make fun of the states now, okay?
Clearly you South Australians aren't entirely civilised with your English usage, though.

Melbourne is made of all kinds of well-cultured win. But you just have to look at Flinders Street Station to know that.

And if we're going to make fun of other states - Queensland's grade 11 English curriculum actually has a place for Cold Chisel in the war poetry unit.

This sounds like a fantastic idea to me. I do hope that we have Dostoevsky readings to accompany the toast.

Or Douglas Adams readings, if we're suitably sloshed in our non-bogan manner.

See, that comes up with the little red underline on this stupid Firefox, and I wasn't thinking and I've been drinking all day so just forgive me, right?

Khe Sanh as war poetry? Did you have to do an assignment on it?

I'm afraid that my bottle of wine has well and truly kicked in now...so I'm going to take this opportunity to attempt some sleep in this stifling heat!

Goodnight all

American spellcheckers, eh? I don't let anything spellcheck for me. I'm just too sick of "but not only is 'manoeuvre' correct, it also looks ten thousand times better than 'maneuver'!"

I remember we listened to it a few times and spent at least three or four lessons analysing it in the context of social attitudes to the Vietnam War and Vietnam vets. I don't think we did a proper assignment on it, though. I can't remember what our assignment for that unit was ... I know I would've walked out if I'd had to do an essay on Khe Sanh though!

Have a good night Mandy, nice talking to you!

Hope the heat doesn't wear you down too much tomorrow.
