Yeah. Well, the headphones seem to have entirely failed now, I'm getting nothing out of the right channel. Guess I'm stuck with speakers or the iPod earbuds tonight.

Not even sure quite where to go to get new ones. I was figuring I'd just call into a Dick Smith, though they're probably overpriced.

Jen's been killing me with You Tube. Must listen to Irving Plaza gig tonight... I sometimes forget that even if I don't like ATYCLB, the (pre) Elevation gigs weren't all songs from it

I got mine in Kmart. There was a sale on, they were from a cabinet in the audio section so they can't have been that bad, they fit over my whole ear and have squooshy cushion stuff, and they cost me maybe $40. And they sound GOOOOOD.

Dude, it's worth it.

Yeah, the Irving Plaza and Astoria gigs are pretty good, for sure. It's funny though - I enjoy almost all of Irving Plaza except 11 O'clock Tick Tock, the one song which on paper I should enjoy the most.

Ha, just found out why the headphones stopped working. Popped it open and discovered a couple of important wires had frayed apart and must have just detached.

How long have you had your headphones, Ali? Guess I'm off to Dick Smith or Kmart or Target or wherever tomorrow.

It's not quite Geelong though ... damn you, cin and Danny!

Ah, cool. Well, I'll see what I can find tomorrow. It just doesn't feel right to not have my headphones on! And those iPod earbuds get astonishingly uncomfortable after a couple of hours.

I have my earphones in half the day at work, although not continuously cos idiots keep asking me questions or phoning me or otherwise interrupting my music-listening.

I thought my earphones were dying last year, so I bought a new set before I went overseas... but luckily they're still kicking! I love these earphones, I've had them for nearly ten frickin years, they're from a walkman (yes, a TAPE player), and they fit perfectly. These newfangled things with the loose rubbery bit freak me out. Do not want.

OK, so if less than 5 hours of sleep last night for trains wasn't bad enough, now I'm being awfully tempted to head up to Castlemaine on the 26th for this, the first time two J class locomotives have run together since 1970 ...

Fucking railways!

Just pretend you can't hear them. "Sorry, too busy working ... on my music appreciation ..."

Wow, that's impressive. And, you know, I think I may actually have an old walkman lying around somewhere too. It's probably in pretty good working order, since I don't recall ever using it a terrible lot. I think my mother's attempt to get me to keep my Shadows cassettes to myself rather than blasting them on the stereo in the lounge failed.

Oh WHAT. Another coal fired power plant has been approved for the LaTrobe Valley.
