Clifton Hill Hotel...

It's in the vicinity of Collingwood and North Fitzroy... not exactly my neighbourhood but I'm sure I can get there.

I remember I only got Broadband right at the time of like, maybe a month or so after I got back from America. So I was able to download most the Vertigo Tour Bootlegs

Good Times!

I could get to it, but late at night I'd have a hard time getting home, given the trams don't run 24/7.

I hardly use the phone but my housemates do, so that's not really an option unless we do the VOIP thing, which apparently means no line rental, but the possibility of the net slowing to a crawl whenever you use the phone. But theoretically it shouldn't do that... theory doesn't always have a lot to do with real life though.

I remember burning stuff for you because I had broadband earlier! I got it in ... either December 2003 or January 2004. I pretty much ceased trading when I went to the US and haven't had the desire to restart since.

I'd be driving, so I could give you a lift. Even if it means driving through the city...

You will have to sign a waiver beforehand though.

I'm sticking to my excuse that they may never come back to Australia, so three gigs is quite acceptable! I'm going to be fucking exhausted though, what with the travelling and all the standing. AND I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO PLAY! I don't know how the band does it.

And yes, I can't wait to see what you think of Agalloch!

I have absolutely no familiarity with VOIP, so I can't help you there. I've looked into it that little that I'm not even sure if Skype is VOIP technology or something else. All I know is that I like Skype a lot, and if I wanted, it could be my permanent phone number for a fee much lower than Tel$tra.

Yes I remember that, I got the first 2-3 VT shows from you , and the 3 cam mix from the Brooklyn Bridge...which I just found the other day actually.

That would be very nice of you. It doesn't look like the venue's too far from my place, just across the inner northern suburbs, but of course, all the buses stop running by about 10pm (and even that late only if you're lucky) and the trams don't run cross-suburb. I totally don't get why there isn't a tram route along Brunswick Road to link Fitzroy North with Moonee Ponds and Essendon.

The direction of $$$ flow is reversed? Plus they don't have to do any queueing, if any is required....

Don't I owe you both stuff ...?

Well, if we do another meet-up, you can put in your requests and hope I bring them.
