Wow, cool.

What'd you think of Green Carnation and Katatonia? I think you said you listened to A Blessing In Disguise, right? I have that but haven't really listened to it. The Acoustic Verses is the only album I've devoted a significant amount of time to.

I liked Green Carnation more than I liked Katatonia. Both were fairly more aggressive than I was expecting (as my friend who burned them for me assured me they were mellow*)

*probably in reference to the bands' other music, not mellow in general.

Last Fair Deal Gone Down is far, far more mellow than early (i.e. better) Katatonia. Can't speak about Blessing In Disguise.

I hate how so many bands go to shit with age. I struggle to name bands that made their best albums well into their career. Porcupine Tree is the only one coming to mind. Let's see what Orphaned Land brings this year.

howdy all.

i just recieved my fine for "placing feet on appartus on the train in places other than the floor".

$162.

I will not pay it. It's revenue raising, and is more than a speeding fine.

Hey Danny.

Bloody hell, that's ridiculous. How do you plan to get out of it?

Danny - they got any solid proof that you actually did it i.e. photo or video footage?

I've no idea how you'd contest it, especially since it is technically an offence and you did do it. I believe you can contest some things by pointing out that you have a clean record and request a warning in place of a fine, but I don't know if that applies to this.

Good point, though a situation of Danny-says-this, Inspector-says-that could be difficult and likely require a court hearing. Since Danny's a teenager, I'd be concerned that the inspector's word would be taken over his. Sad but true. A 40 year old accountant would probably be able to win in such a scenario.

Legal system is clogged up. It's likely they'll just throw the case out.

And I am aware that the inspectors sometimes don't show up for these things, which also leads to the case being thrown out.

Even if they do, if you just make the case go longer than about five minutes, the magistrate gets frustrated and just throws it out to get them to move on.

(I had a corrupt Legal Studies teacher. *laughs*)
