No, no, Pure Reason Revolution.

And yeah, I saw that they're hitting Festy Hall of all godforsaken places. And considering their new song is kind of dodgy and I don't know that much of their material, I'm not all too likely to go. Are you?

If my current plan actually works out (and who can predict so far into the future?), I'll be handing in my PhD thesis in 2013 or 2014. Then ... well, I guess I'd just work at whatever uni wants to take me, preferably one in Melbourne! I really don't feel like moving back to New Zealand ...

I'd say probably the most accessible uni in the city is the city campus of RMIT - about ten tram routes on Swanston, another handful on LaTrobe, and then Melbourne Central railway station over the road. But you wouldn't catch me dead at RMIT.
Yeah somewhere around there. If if I do a combination of Tram/Train. its not too bad, maybe 30 minutes to the city by train.

I just wish more of their music were like the song Myrkur. If it were, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

I love how it'll be finished in June, but they're still stuck in an eighties mindset and can't get the damn thing out until November.

Funny, I finished school in 2004. Didn't realise I had to go back there for a PhD.

Even if they put it out in, September?. Its better than waiting 5 months just waiting and waiting. Patience seems to be the key I've lost with U2. At least we'll have a single in September.

I'm off for lunch folks. see you guys later
