I'm not that huge a fan really, I need to get some money to buy their albums... Really, I want to be a huge fan, but can't afford to yet. Stupid cheap CD store in the city closed down.

But I'll give She Will Be Loved a listen and see.

Now that we're 100 posts off the next thread, does anybody have ideas for new locations? I've got a few, but I feel like I've suggested too many lately.

Woah, I have their entire discography and you don't? If you're cool with MP3/M4A, I can totally help you out. Outside of Regatta de Blanc, I'm not into much besides some select songs. I'm pretty sure the song She Will Be Loved rips off is a Police hit, though. I was only half-listening and heard this familiar melody and thought "hey, the Police! ... wait, that's not Sting, OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL NON-EXISTENT GODS IT'S MAROON 5!"

Has anybody actually e-mailed the Imax and asked for a definitive final showing date?
Let's see... including my own ticket, I spent $80 onthe midnight session that I couldn't get back... add another $40 for the saturday... $20 the next day... plus parking on the midnight ($7 or so?)... and the odd tram ticket.... plus the dinners on Lygon street...

They won't tell you anything that's not already on the site... the schedule for the next week comes out each Monday.

Got it!

The last part of the song sounds EXACTLY like Don't Stand So Close To Me, when the backing vocalist or whoever is singing "Please don't try so hard to stay" or some rubbish.

Also a lot of the song sounds like a Police song, but I can't place it yet.

What, really? Nice job not telling anyone or anything. I had no bloody idea. Then again, even if you had let me know, I have a tendency to forget birthdays. Including my own.

Also,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

China's lucky that 8/8/08 is in the northern summer.

Thanks! I actually don't tell anyone, just to see who remembers and who bothers to find out. I don't think it's all that important anyway to be honest.

(to you; to them and their crappy plagiarism)

Yeah, the parts leading up to that godawful chorus remind me of something, but I couldn't place it when I was at the shop and I'm not willing to listen to the song of my own free will ...

I'm not going to listen to it again, I'm listening to Flower Child.

Does he have a problem with MSG? There should be things that don't have nuts/fish/whatever the other thing is....

03/06/09 shall bring great woe upon people who make false allegations about Axver.



My favourite date ever was 02/02/2000. It was the first time all numbers in the date had been even since 08/08/888! I thought that was really neat.
