I seriously cannot think of a single building as ugly as that on any other university campus I've ever visited. It's not too bad inside, actually, besides the slow as hell lift (though it's at least a visually modern-looking lift rather than an old, clapped out one). But externally, it's almost enough to make you nauseous.

Its accompanying Education Resource Centre library is similarly hideous, but contains my beloved humanities archive.

Depending on how dedicated you are to the principles of Phailure, you might consider dusting the old axe (haha!) off before we get together, and seeing how much comes back to you

Speaking of which, I really should do some practise before everyone goes to bed...

I'm thinking maybe I should aim for the SuperPhail and not touch it at all, just to see how utterly shit and out of practise I am when we begin playing Gloria.

I can at least vaguely remember parts of 11OTT and NYD's solo ...

Can you see much of the view when you go to places like that? Or do you have to wait for the pics....

A bit more of central Melbourne, looking a bit more to the east away from the ugliness of the Doug McDonnell Building.

Actually, I just remembered those last two pics were taken from the top of Mt Difficult... which is where one of our friends' cars broke down and needed to be rescued by the RACV (much much much later).

Random pic of the Aquarium, and the giant inflatable squid that used to be on the roof (they were displaying some big frozen squid at the time)...




Edit: Wow, it should not be that pixellated and crap! I need to shrink that pic again and re-upload...

It really depends. I usually get a decent general idea, but some specifics can be lost on me until I look at the pictures. Looking into sunlight can really stuff me around, though.

My most embarrassing moment was on a year 12 geography excursion up to Springbrook behind the Gold Coast. We were at the Best Of All Lookout and I remark to my friend that we must be looking south over country New South Wales. He very quickly pointed out that we had to be looking east, since the sea was visible. NOT TO ME IT WASN'T! I refused to believe him until I looked around at the shadows and realised that yes, we really were looking towards the coast!

That squid's bloody cool. Though yikes, that pixellation's unpleasant!

And is it the Aquarium that's hidden behind the railway lines in this picture?

Trains...stations...I should post some pictures of the last remnants of our once glorious railroad system here. It's very sad, and thought-provoking.

Oh, that's right, your entire province's railways got closed down, didn't they?

Bet that's really coming back to bite you lot in the arse now. Got to hate short-sighted 20th century transport planning.

I'd love to see the photos. Ghost railways are a fascination of mine. One day I plan to travel around New Zealand and photograph the remnants of various closed lines.

*peers* I don't think so... if you can tell me what street(s) that is, I'll be able to say for sure. It doesn't look like the rail bridges that you can see the aquarium from, anyway.

Of course, having said all that, I'll probably be proven wrong now.

Here's a cleaner pic... this is looking along King's Way, incidentally, where it crosses the Yarra.


(I think you can maybe see the building I work in, too.)
