Those shows were a revelation... and kind of a turning point. And last year I had my trip, which I'd been planning for a year, as well... I paid for the plane ticket the same week of the concerts here. Thank god for birthday money or I'd never have survived November '06, financially speaking!

And I found my way back to the blue crack, too

Whatever it was, I think things started getting better after the shows.


..... *doesn't have the Boston DVD yet*
Every time I see it in a shop it's like $55, and I can never quite justify spending that much at the time....

Mind you, if I'm paying $70 to see a band I'd never heard of a month ago, maybe I should reassess that.


I remember the start of 2005 being awesome with the whole U2 tour thing, then the dissapointment of the "delay" of the tour...then the official announcement , and then going to america...well fuck that was such a great time looking back. I should have done so much more with my time (IE: stalking U2, visiting the sights).

I would love to go back next tour, but Life has changed a lot since then, I'd have to get time off work, and money is a bit of an issue at times.

Then the end of 2005, I finished year 12 and Didn't go great in exams, but I wasn't exactly aiming for Uni (I still don't know what I wanna do with my life)...I still passed and everything....

2006 started promising, with my IT course. Until the hours and the whole getting up at 5am, getting home at 7pm killed me. I think it would have been okay if I was doing full time work, But I didn't have the energy to study at the end of the day. I drove 2 hours home on Friday night to relax and enjoy myself. (Now Life is quite the opposite.)

Was also supposed to go visit a girl who I used to go to school with (and Liked very much at the time) Oversea's, that didn't happen due to lack of funds and parental help.....

I failed to finish my IT course completly, I don't know what it was/is with me. I've never been a good learner, well, I'm not good at taking it all in. Anyway then there was the whole U2 delayed dates thing......Are they coming, aren't they coming?.....I knew they would eventually come, it would just be a matter of when.

So fast Forward to November 2006...What a Great time, my only regret was not going to more shows, that I had planned to go to at the start of the year....but then got rid of my tickets because it was just not doable at the time.

Life is a hell of a a lot better now though. So I'll stop crapping on, this isn't Zoo Confessionals!

The Boston DVD has been $55 or so for so long its NOT FUNNY!. I mean the Chicago DVD is now like $15 at JB. What Gives?..

Mum thought I was crazy spending $55 on a DVD back then....well that started the whole crazy ride. Now she loves the U2.

well I probably wouldn't bother including eyeofthefly.net (Which I wonder if the site I co-ran still operates!) on my resume.

Well, I've got to have something to keep me wound up, don't I? This forum wouldn't be quite the same otherwise.

Hahaha, holy shit - Lichtenstein is fucking hilarious.

The best parts, of course, is when people not in on it come in and are all "is this true, ax? coz ur th autority on u3 n so it muzt b r u rekordinzit??" and man, that is so wacky.

More magpie fun: My cousins had a pet Magpie they raised from birth (she had been kicked out of the nest by her mum ) and it was incredibly friendly, and played with their dogs. It also acted like a dog. I have a lot of love in my heart for magpies.

Chuck Norris doesn't hear worms moving underground. Why? Cause they all die when he goes near them.

I was gonna make it a Jackie Chan joke, but couldn't figure out a good way to.

Although I have eaten pigeons, snake, snails and frogs. But French people eat them anyway, so
Oh man, "spicy", now there's a subjective term. My neighbour used to be this cool Indian guy, an engineering student at Melbourne University. One day he brought me some traditional Indian food his uncle had made and said "it's not very spicy at all". It nearly blew the back of my mouth out! I'm not Mr Spicy Foods. My hot Hungarian salami from the Coles deli is quite enough.

I'd be quite happy to try snake, though I imagine it's tough and nasty. Snails and frogs, hell no. Pigeon ... well, I just can't help but get this mental image of shooting one of the surely diseased bastards on Swanston Street and tucking into it rather than frequenting Macca's.

Probably that's a more healthy lunch too, coming to think of it!

I haven't burnt any DVD, let alone a copy-protected one, in over three years though! Remembering how is going to be a small challenge.

Spicy IS definitely a subjective term. Although the dish I recommended does come with a three-chilli rating (the maximum usually) on the menus of everywhere I've seen it!

Snake I can't really remember. Snail's quite nice, but obviously you've gotta get the bred ones. Frog's great, a bit like chicken though. Pigeon was also really interesting, if a bit tough (it was in Malaysia, so probably more diseased than here).

No, it's gone! I actually had a guy who used to post there contact me on my Wikipedia Talk page, though!

I was just trying to remember why Haast's Eagle sounded familiar...

That's right... it was the GIANT EAGLE THAT FRICKIN ATE MOAS.

MOAS!!




David Attenborough's Life of Birds...

My friends in England met him recently at a book signing.... :jealous:

From the Wikipedia article on Haast's Eagle:

Quote:
The strong legs and massive flight muscles would have enabled the birds to take off with a jumping start from the ground, despite their great weight. The tail was almost certainly long (up to 50 cm (20 inches), in female specimens) and very broad, further increasing manoeuverability and providing additional lift. Total length was perhaps up to 1.4 m (4.7 ft) in females, with a standing height of around 90 cm (about 3 ft) tall or even slightly more. Haast's Eagle preyed on large, flightless bird species, including the moa which was up to 15 times its weight. It attacked at speeds up to 80 km per hour (50 mph), often seizing its prey's pelvis with the talons of one foot and killing with a blow to the head or neck with the other.
HOLY CRAP, why hasn't anyone formed a martial art style based off this animal yet?
