Probably something revoltingly ironic like sudden death with no warning. Just mocking laughter in your ears as you descend...

It seems so! It worked the reverse for me. The more I read the Bible, and the more I investigate it in a scholarly manner, the less I'm inclined to take any of its claims seriously.

Also, it's appropriate we're having this conversation while I listen to Halo live from Sydney ...

Definitely highlight of the Melb show, for me!

For the Maj.'s benefit, this is PT's Halo. Enjoy the sarcasm.

God is in my fingers, God is in my head
God is in the trigger, God is in the lead

God is in the cellphone, God is on the 'net
God is in the warning, God is in the threat

God is freedom, God is truth
God is power, God is proof
God is fashion, God is fame
God gives meaning, God gives pain

You can be right like me!
With God in a hole, you're a righteous soul
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me
I'm not the same as you
'Cause I've seen the light and I'm gaining in height now
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round my head

I think the highlight of my PT jaunt would have to be Even Less in Brisbane. Anesthetize just about melted my face in Brisbane too.

As for Melbourne, I think the highlight for me was Dark Matter or A Smart Kid. Or Trains - that was the best Trains of the three.

Perhaps you misinterpreted SW's pointing at that show...

SW: *thinks while singing* Dear gods, his face has melted! Get this guy an ambulance!!

Well, the official website says "with God in the hole", but I've always thought he sings the indefinite article.

And I've discovered I've been singing a couple of PT lyrics wrong!

Most glaring example is Anesthetize. My version:
Only apathy from the pills in me
It's all we really need
Electricity from the pills in me
It's all we really need
Only MTV, cult philosophy


Turns out it's actually:
Only apathy from the pills in me
It's all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
It's all in me, all in you
Only MTV, cod philosophy


Frankly, I prefer my version, and if he can't spell the title right, why should I get the lyrics right ...!

The sound in Brisbane was just SENSATIONAL. I've never heard a live gig sound as good as PT's set. The middle section of Anesthetize just blew me away and I've never headbanged so much in my life.

Sleep Parade, however, sounded like total dogshit at all three shows. I was rather bored of them by Brisvegas.

Cod philosophy is a synonym for pseudo-philosophy, and according to Wikipedia, is derived from "codswallop".

(Yes, I had to look that up. I have heard "cod philosophy" before, but couldn't recall the precise meaning.)

(And "codswallop" is a fucking cool word.)
