If someone hasn't beaten me to it, those were diprotodonts. Biiiiig frickin wombats, and I'm sure a very tempting target to the first people to set foot on this continent and say, "Well, that was a fun canoe ride. What's to eat?"

When I was doing the museum mentor programme, we got to play with all these megafauna fossils... and Peter Trusler, who is a frickin AMAZING artist, came to talk to us about how he draws these extinct animals from the bones up... he had some drawings of diprotodont skulls that I can only describe as beautiful.

*looks for pics*

I'm clearly just not meant to be a sci-fi fan. I find the original Star Wars to be boring and overly drawn out, and the new stuff to be mediocre sci-fi action that nonetheless keeps you awake better than the originals.

What is the Family Guy Star Wars movie like?

I don't really like Family Guy much, used to watch it a lot but the overdose of useless pop culture references and usually bad comic/animation timing caught up (so naturally, I loved the Cartoon Wars episodes of South Park). Still, I'm sort of curious about the film.

Finances are manageable... it also helps that I have no life and get to save the money up that other people tend to spend on alcohol.

Job's entering a bit of a chaotic period, and I recently started thinking about doing the working holiday and buggering off to the UK for a year or two.
Which would work out great for any imminent U2 tours...


And try not to stress about the Engineering course thing... if you decide it's not for you, then it's not...
(I don't think dyslexicness on its own should impede you, but if you really don't want to be an Engineer, then that's pretty much that...)
I would love to do that. RE:Work Overseas thing, actually that's what I was going to do in 2006.

I know It's not just that pulling me back, it really does come down to If I want to stick with it for a good portion of my life, or go off and do something else.

What also doesn't help is my Girlfriend lives in Melbourne. Which, depending on how things go could be a deciding factor.

Life should be more like Interference. In all its gloryness! It'd be so much easier that way

Oh, yes, Bullet! I knew there were four songs I always played. I think Elevation Bullet is second only to ZooTV Bullet in terms of best versions.

I think what Elevation Boston most needs is, you know, a good setlist.

Its really good. I used to like family guy, up till about the end of season 4. Now its just rubbish.

But The Blue Harvest Move/Extended Episode Is worth checking out IMO.

I was so disappointed in Liam Neeson. He's usually awesome.

Slane is my least favourite U2 video ever. What a snooze. I can't think of a single reason to watch it right now.

Fucken hell I'm up to this part, its like you know, just after WOWY!

THE FLY FROM ELEVATION = OWNS ALL OTHER VERSIONS OF THE FLY!!!!

I thought The Setlists for Boston were pretty good. From memory, I've always loved the full bootleg from 6/6/01.
