Ye gods, tourist, glad you're okay! I hate near misses like that in traffic. Well, I'd hate a collision more...

I never fuck with trams. I avoid driving anywhere near them if I can avoid it.

Beautiful Day: listenable, alright. Not the second coming.
Stuck: Utter cliched tripe. Crime against humanity.
Elevation: Utter cliched tripe. Sort of fun live.
Walk On: Cliched but I like it anyway. It sounds good.
Kite: Hate the fake strings intro but the rest makes it one of the best songs on the album.
IALW: Crime against humanity.
Wild Honey: Fun. Cops too much shit. Not a remarkable song by any means, but fun.
Peace On Earth: Has a few moments. Meh.
WILATW: Very good.
New York: Alright music, horrible lyrics.
Grace: Subtle, most of the lyrics are pretty decent.
TGBHF: FUCK YES.

So as I started moving over into the lane, the truck came within millimeters of my car. I swerved back into my own lane (which had began moving at a steady pace again), and fishtailed like mad for what seemed like a minute (but was probably only about 10 seconds). I fully expected to get hit and roll while I was fishtaling.
mutha fucker.



glad you are ok






better have thank god im alive sex later.

You should see Haymarket in Melbourne. Royal Parade, Flemington Road, Peel Street, Elizabeth Street and a couple of small others meet there ... and three double-tracked tram routes run through the middle, diverging and connecting with each other.

ABSOLUTE FUCKING MAYHEM.

I'm glad I get off for uni at the stop beforehand.

Worst experience i've had while driving (so far), was i was driving my brother home and as we were crossing the bridge at Waipuna (i think) there was a van driving the wrong way down the road. The bridge has a median barrier, and this guy must have got himself into real trouble to be on the wrong side of the road anyway. It's a hard part of the road to fuck up.

I pulled right over into the next lane - without looking. Fuck it, sideswiping a car is better than hitting a van head on.

A good drink worked well after that.

I REFUSE point blank to drive through it. I'll take a 10 minute diversion to avoid it.

That'd be hilarious.

I hate people who run railway level crossings. If you get killed, it's your own fucking fault and I feel no sympathy for those dickheads, just the poor train driver who has to live with that.

I usually enjoy Elevation (and definitely fun live), and Grace never really grabbed me, but other than that, I'm pretty much with you there.

Actually, IALW isn't all bad. I don't think it's as criminal as Stuck.
