Wouldn't Dubya and Howard count as elderly? Especially by medival standards....

Still an interesting read. War of the Worlds is good too
Still, I enjoy post-apocalyptic and dystopian literature, so it's on my to-read list.

I finally got around to reading Brave New World in December last year. I could barely put it down.

*shrug* I think elderly would probably be more along the lines of really, really old people! Also, they're probably more infirm of mind than anything else.

Either way, I still think it's a great plan. Who's going with me?

Haven't read that one... I need to watch some of those old sci fi films, too, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and all that...

Actually, the first time I heard this song I couldn't make out half the lyrics. I told one of my mates "Dude, this song has nothing about seabirds in it, where's the relevance?"

His (somewhat sarcastic) answer was great: "They were a bunch of hippies in a rock band living in the 80s. They didn't do relevance."


What an incredible song, though. I especially love the last verse.

I just played Lonely Stretch - no idea why it never struck me before, because that's fucking INTENSE. Perhaps because I often skip Tarrilup Bridge and just go straight for Wide Open Road.

Brave New World, 1984, V for Vendetta (the graphic novel), War of the Worlds



Especially V for Vendetta, it expresses things the way sometimes words just can't.

To tell the truth, I have never ever read a graphic novel.

It is, isn't it? The only reason I'd not listen to it, and Tarrilup Bridge, is cause they seriously creep me out sometimes.

I hadn't either until Watchmen, then V for Vendetta (both by Alan Moore). Totally worth the read.

I'm not much into films at all. Life's too short for movies, you know? I like music and books; they leave more to the imagination and I find them to be more involving and satisfying.

Plus the exorbitant cost of going to the theatre seriously puts me off anything new.

You're not doing a good job living up to Asian stereotypes.

I don't have dyed hair or run around pretending to be Cloud Strife or Sephiroth or Hirohito or whatever those anime characters' names are either.

And I don't walk around like a fool pretending that I'm all tough and in the Yakuza.



Because I don't need to.

Me too. My bag's packed.

More to the point, my bag's still pretty much packed from my trip to New Zealand back in January ...
