But I'm a boring person who's interested in things like trams, setlists, and the 19th century socio-political history of New Zealand. Are you sure you want to risk me picking the topic?

So who knows. She probably has lots of very good intentions. Anybody betting on them coming to fruition is throwing their money away.


ian said he'd try with much better software, in the meantime I have a paper to write and I am only checing this because I woke up a little early.

I also dislike Babyface.

I thought Ian said he might try. Well, I hope one of you does it soon!

And suuure, likely excuse.

Yes, COBL/Babyface/Ito isn't one of the best opening trios ever. I was trying to mix things up. It was near the end of the first African leg and I was getting experimental. On the second African leg, I try to do something stupid along the lines of not repeating a single opener for 40 consecutive shows. Some bizarre stuff shows up ...

We're going to Te Urewera National Park next! Te Urewera is Maori for "the burnt penis". It's in the North Island of New Zealand.

If you were really desingning their setlists you would need to be a bit more consistent than that.

Shame that, huh? I just counted it up and I use 36 different openers over the 36 final shows of the second African leg - and the opener of the 37th show, the 1st of the third leg, is also different.

There's normal stuff, like Streets and Elevation, cool stuff like Hawkmoon and God Part II, and unusual stuff like THBAO, Beautiful Ghost, United Colours, and Indian Summer Sky.

I don't do snippets on my fantasy database. It's quite enough to do tour schedules and the sets themselves! I've thought about adding them, but I'm too far gone now.

Yeah I think ideally you'd be limited to normal and cool stuff.

I think United Colours and Beautiful Ghost would both work as openers.
