I don't think I've ever seen a pre-JT U2 poster at one of those sales...

So when the sea is fished clean, we can resort to preserved prehistoric sealife?

The Maj. said he'd seen a JT one before, so we tried to find that, but I kept holding out hopes for a UABRS one or something along those lines.

Though I do have 11OTT and UABRS lithographs already. They need to be framed but that costs money ...

Mammoth was quite the delicacy on European menus for a while there, when they were finding them frozen in Russian glaciers or permafrost or something.

Not sure I'd be that keen, myself...

I've got a JT one, Bono crouched onstage in what looks like a German stadium or something like that.

You're awesome. And probably far more entertaining to everyone than the train/plane banter Ian and I have going. Also, that Corinthian helmet is neat - except for the lino floor coming out of the top!
Oh, thanks - I can assure you, I'm not always talking about ancient civilisations and stuff, maybe after a few drinks or if I'm riled up or if someone asks, or if I'm bored... that's all.

As for the Corinthian, I agree that pattern is a little gaudy, but there were many different ones used. Checker patterns like that were common, probably sometimes even painted right onto the helmet itself - but you also had the standard Greek zig-zags and squarey things and other designs I don't really know the names of. That particular crest would probably be elongated a bit more, and was worn by Spartan officers, presumably. The king, like Leonidas (who was actually about 60 when he fought at Thermopylai - not exactly Gerard Butler and probably with no Scottish accent) would have an even larger crest. There were quite a few interesting crests and helmets, people are still learning things about them and coming up with theories today.

That helmet, by the way, is made at an armoury in Melbourne. It's considered one of the best reproduction armouries in the world today, I think I'll have a visit when I go over.

A Rattle And Hum one we were both tempted to buy, but held off. I'm thinking of finding and buying it tomorrow, though. I said that if I found a pre-JT one, I'd buy it straight away, but no such luck.
That sounds like a good plan, any 80s U2 poster would be pretty good, I imagine. A Big Star store here once had a pretty swell array of U2 posters seemingly from the late eighties, but I didn't buy any. I feel like a tool now cause that was like four years ago and I wouldn't mind having one of them up, even though I'm usually against having posters up in my room unless they're old propaganda posters or art prints.

I think the one the Maj. had seen was one of the band in the Arizona desert looking like bogans.

I think I have the same one. Black and white, showing him from the side on the right? Looks like daytime?

Also, I really need to reread my psots, again. I used 'apparently' about fifty fucking times in another one before. I'll blame it on the fact I didn't go to Tafe today.

Looks like I was wrong... this thing seems to say that if anything, females have a higher average range of body temperature...?

There's a reproduction armoury here?! Let me know when you visit, that would be cool to see. I liked seeing the blacksmiths at places like Sovreign Hill or that one in Swan Hill...

Some of those shots are awesome.

Others, not so much.

Yep, that's the one.



I just got tired... I think I'll go now and try to get 8 hours sleep. I've decided that 7 hours is exactly the wrong number of hours I can sleep... 8 is great, I'm fine with 6... but 7 just leaves me out of sorts and cranky all day.


Seeya dudes
