No, the only Stuporthread Kiwis are Ian, Kim, and I.

And I've now lived in Australia longer than I've lived in New Zealand.

"Some" bands. Heh, even I would give more credit to them.

Oh to Hades with it.

Things to Make and Do is pretty cool too...

I love that these Boy gigs can all fit onto one download on that site that won't be named

I have always liked the term Australasians to refer to both peoples. But I don't know how kiwis feel about Australia dominating that word!

Seems like lotsa fun. I've never drunk posted. Well, on here, anyway.
Depending on what I m doing on my birthday, I may be doing the same! (My birthday's on a Sunday, so I dunno if I'll be drinking then or not.)

Okay, we invented a bionic ear, that's pretty cool, but I don't think it justifies getting misty-eyed over the (mostly boring and anachronistic) flag.

Whoah. Sorry.
I love this post.

I should also say that I fucking love Melbourne, before anybody gets any ideas. Yesterday, at Moreland station, I had my cane out and this really nice Somalian guy was worried that I was going to fall over the edge of the platform. We got to talking about where we both came from and how much we loved living in Melbourne. We agreed that Sydney's terrible but this part of Australia is one of the best places on the planet.

Australasian can refer to basically anyone in Oceania, I think? Or within a certain vicinity.

You're a horrible person!

And somehow I suspect the Beatles' existence wasn't terribly influential on the existence of bands such as Agalloch and Orphaned Land.

I also dunno how the people in all the other countries in this area would feel about that...!

"Austral" just means southern, so it needn't refer specifically to Australia (which was VERY imaginitively named... not that "New Zealand" can claim any superior originality there!).
