Wow, this thread grew up a few pages while I was doing some other stuff.

Quote:
Oh, that's right, because nobody fucking cares about the Aborigines. I sincerely hate to think what other countries in the world are like when Australia, with the third highest living standards in the world (beaten only by Norway and Iceland), treats its indigenous population like absolute SHIT, condemning them to social marginalisation and economic conditions worse than some third world countries.

/tangentrant
I hear you, I seriously want to do some work with Aboriginal communities when I'm a bit older. I always wanted to do the same with native Americans too. I just have a complete utmost respect for remaining indigenous people in such massively colonized lands.

When did this happen? Must be pretty damn recent, as we did sweet fuck-all. I think the only time the Aborigines were mentioned in all of my time at high school was during grade ten Modern History (an elective), and only in passing in a unit about the European colonisation of Australia.

But hey, I lived in Queensland, quite possibly the worst place for Aboriginal marginalisation and discrimination in the whole bloody country outside of Wilson Tuckey's electorate.

The whole U2:3D thing has put you on a U2 High too eh?

I'm watching the Milan DVD at the moment, It has been collecting dust since about December 2006.

The only problem I'd have with a 3 second clip of the first single coming out would be the inevitable backlash that'd flow through EYKIW.

It'd just go nuts; one bloke'd point out how similar Bono's voice is to various half-a-second clips from obscure bootlegs, another'd go on and on asking for more information, another'd just spam things like "ZOMG TEH NEW ALBUM SOUNDS ROXXORZ!", another'd be complaining about the guitar and the quality of the clip and a couple would be talking up Bono's sneeze on TV to mean the new direction that U2 are taking.

Then someone'd compare it to Pop, and then about a billion threads about how the clip compares to every single song in the history of U2 would pop up.

At least we've apologised, for what good that's done.
It shits me so much. I remember doing Maori culture and language in New Zealand and I loved it. I've some quite fond memories of those lessons.

I can't believe it took us so fucking long just to get to an apology. Hey, Howard? GFY, bitch.

I am, but I'm not gonna come in. I honestly don't want to risk it. I mean, I can walk, but by my normal standards I'm still pretty damned sick (can't run, jump, walk distances past about 1km, etc) and so I'm not sure I'd survive the hour-and-a-bit journey in to uni.

And he STILL thinks he was doing the right thing. Someone should go Chuck Norris on his arse.

I find Aboriginal culture and beliefs fascinating, especially the Dreamtime stuff. Pity I never really LEARNED ANYTHING ABOUT IT THANKS HOWARD.

Awesome. I'll just wait for the first few threads titled "Bono said that the new single" and "Bono's voice now" and "Teh new album" to run then.

Yeah, don't push yourself. That probably wouldn't be smart. I'll see you next week then, I hope! Don't go having a kidney removed or anything!

And now I really am out. See you folk in 20-25 minutes!
