Chemistry, Algebra, and Geometry at a high school level all had one thing in common for me: however much theorum memorizing or whatever, they all had puzzles to solve and I found that fun. Derivatives do NOT count, they are just boring and confusing and pointless reptition.

Though I did like Bio, which was memorization, because I found molecular stuff interesting...

P.S. to people who had/have TI-83s for math - remember Drug Wars????? That shit was fun.

Is it wrong that I think that could just about plausibly be a few regional Victorian services?

In which case, diesel engine, Australia, first time, 760 photos.

(I must admit, I'm worried about how this album will go given the member changes they've experienced.)

If I wasn't such a crapper at math, I likely would've gone into meteorology. It's always intrigued me.. so much math in that though it's not even funny.

It certainly looks like this album might be drastically different. Seems they've got quite a electronic influence this time around, from what I've read. The demo on the myspace page sure confirms it, too.

Of course, I like electronic music, so this could be quite fascinating to see what they come up with.

Yeah, if I hadn't been completely turned off science by physics teacher suckage in my last year of high school, I might still be on the molecular bio path. But then I think about the math....

Ironically I was originally supposed to have the best physics teacher ever, and then he got pushed out by the school that summer, as in addition to being a great teacher he did a lot of activism on the racial composition of the school that they didn't like. So they hired whoever they could find, which turned out to be a 60 year old community college teacher who looked like a skeleton (not exaggerating) and I knew on the first day she was not only dumber than me but probably couldn't have gotten into the exam school I went to.

I not only don't have time, but I think I'd rather watch it right before the next 2 air in 2 weeks. Next week no new episode would drive me nuts.

If you haven't seen the Orchid video which was released as a promo a while ago, and is official canon material, now is the time, youtube "orchid lost".

I suppose that influence was already there, re: Golden Clothes. If they pull it off as well as that, I expect to enjoy it.

It's such a shame they've lost the guy who played violins, though. He really added something to their sound.
