It was late enough in the first leg that they could well have attended other shows. I don't think they left the concert altogether, just vacated their spot front row center, obviously more concerned with looking up Polly Jean's leather mini skirt than looking at Bono's package.

Had nothing going on so I'm finally building a database of artists I've seen live, using my RYM ratings. Just finished D and up to 78 artists.

I spend waaaaaayyyyy too much money on festivals. Most of the truly memorable gigs on this list were smaller shows.

God damn the new LCD Soundsystem.

So much good music came out in the span of 7 days. Not counting the new Taylor Swift.

I wish I had done this a long time ago. I save most of my ticket stubs (and always opt for hard tickets when available), but here's some holes in that collection from the 80's and there's some acts especially openers I'd have difficulty recalling.

Martha, I just realized that Black Lips had a new album come out earlier this year. I have sinned against music.

Also, gas is completely sold out here. if you hear of a Mad Max like character roaming the Dallas wasteland with a musket and a French bulldog this weekend, you'll know who it is...

Random Music Talk CXXI: Not this time, Crappy

I listened to some of the BL album and was unimpressed. I was also unimpressed with them live a few months ago. Some key members left and it sure sounds like they're gone.

David Gilmour needs to tour. I would think about going to see him.

I'm sure he has toured, just not recently in Australia.

There's a good chance we may never do DI again, at least not without a sizable uptick in site traffic, but I've been working on a playlist for fun over the past week and thought you guys might enjoy the result if you're looking for some new artists to listen to. I put an unholy amount of time into the sequencing too, because of course I did:

https://open.spotify.com/user/128688...jY9bLuNunvS3mk

Skews extremely modern: about 2/3 of the songs are from the 2010s, with particular emphasis on the past couple of years, so it could be useful for finding some new stuff. If you don't have Spotify, it should be easy to rebuild this on any other streaming service. There's nothing particularly difficult to find in there.

I'd say there is a 1000% chance we never do DI again, but that looks real nice. Might listen to it, I'll add it to me list.

I'd never really experienced the whole family members with shit opinions thing until we had this stupid fucking postal plebiscite on same-sex marriage. Now I'm seeing family members who I have always dearly loved continuously sharing "traditional" marriage views and it's absolutely heartbreaking. I can't take my mind off it.

It's awful. A cousin I really like(d) has turned into a Trump supporter who was looking for "objective" sources of news last summer. I don't really ever want to see her again.

I'm still wondering where the fuck all these no voters are. Even some distant relatives who normally share horrid right-wing political memes (one recently shared something praising Pauline's burqa stunt) haven't gone near the "traditional marriage" shit. I'm quietly pleased

I'm sure I'll be disabused of this soon, and it will be yet another reason why Facebook is a total hellscape.

With every day that goes by the more I become convinced of the fact that the no vote will get up. A lot of people who would vote yes aren't going to because they can't be bothered voting and posting it. All the people who feel like they want to vote no will go to the effort. And that's going to outweigh those of us who vote yes. I hope I'm wrong.

Even if half the people in favour of yes can be bothered, it'll pass.

But I don't think we need to worry. I fully anticipate the high court will strike down the postal survey. Certainly on my reading of the relevant legislation this is not legal, and to permit the survey would enhance the authority of the executive over the legislature to a degree neither desirable nor anticipated in the constitution.
