ATYCLB is good for listening to when I'm bored, I need some U2 and all of the other albums are beginning to sound overplayed.

Yeah, it's by no means my favorite album, but I have a special place in my heart for it, since, it was my first .

It says it switches editor mode, but I never noticed anything different about your posts so

Do you think Sicy should be PM'd and tell her it's ok, or maybe she'll just notice on her own?

ah yes i am actually gonna keep it blue. not for aesthetics (though i do like it better than all that damn white) but because the editor mode makes composing a post way easier. nice find, yeah you could link sicy to this page or somethign so she knows the mystery is solved. plus the editor mode is cool, people should know about it.

So my shitty computer and reading Vazza's thesis are both putting me way behind this thread.

Yeah, I can't say I understand the ninja love either. But people get fascinated by stupid things. See: Interference.

At least New Zealand has Sir Edmund Hillary as its prominent cultural icon!

Resent the song, hope it works this time.

The thing I've noticed is that a lot of people (generalising, mostly white Australians) seem to have this bizarre obsession or fascination with Japanese culture / stuff, especially swords. Most of them seem to think that the katana is the "ultimate weapon", or that ninja shuriken were thrown to kill, etc.

It's so hard to convince them otherwise. Especially when I pull out my martial arts stuff and everyone goes "oh do you do karate?" or "where's your katana?"

ATYCLB was my first non-Best Of album. That doesn't stop me from thinking it's shit.

"Australian" and "culturally informed" rarely go hand in hand. See: Cronulla.
