When's the survey happening though? And when's the high court decision? Will there be enough time? And if the high court decides no can they just do it anyway (and it just becomes informal?)

This is a really lovely and extremely well-researched review of an album that was MASSIVE in its time, despite the artist's shortcomings that have become more apparent ever since. Nelly - County Grammar | Pitchfork

The whole thing is a fucking joke, a postal survey for fuck's sake. Even if 75% of registered voters bothered to reply (and I'd be astonished if it topped 60) - quite apart from constitutional questions - that is not a 'vote' with a lot of legitimacy. Not by Australian standards, at any rate.

The High Court hears the case this week, Tuesday and Wednesday. If they rule against it, it's dead. The government could not legally spend the money and the ABS would have no authority to do anything.

If the court lets it through, the survey forms will be sent out from the week after next, with until sometime in November to return them. There is actually another legal challenge to let 16-17 year olds vote, and that won't be resolved until the survey's under way, but if it succeeds you'd then see a frantic mail-out. (I actually think it has half a chance.)

Fucking lol at all the conservative MPs being like "look at the increase we've had on the roll!" as if they're anything other than young people racing to register so they can vote yes.

There's something wrong with the app. It's telling me I'm in B&C but it appears I'm actually in FYM.

Actually I think you'll find you're in the Straya thread on LS.

Your username was 'BonoManiac'. That's quite embarrassing.

Lemonade Stand has been cancelled forever, and it's only appropriate, as probably none of you even remember this subforum was created so Lemonade Stand wouldn't be overrun with Radiohead talk. Oh, how the worm has turned.

The relationship between the Gallagher brothers puts me in mind of the mid nineties Danny Boyle film Shallow Grave.

RIP Walter Becker of Steely Dan

I never saw them live and now I never will. Fuck. I've spent as much time listening to them as I could since I moved to Los Angeles. Their music is such a wonderful fit for the vibe here and it has been a major part of my life since childhood. I don't know what else to say, really. This really fucking blows.

I feel you man, I was also really hoping to get to see them too, but now I won't. Really selfishly fucking upset too that it happened at midnight my time as well, because I have to go to sleep, I can't grieve

Holy shit, very unexpected. RIP.

Other than that, been spending time with The Verve's Urban Hymns reissue. It would have been a stellar double album if they had included all those B-sides.
Now, back to LCD.

Just got around to ordering that. The reissues of the first two albums are immense, so much great bonus material. Can't wait for this one.

woah, i woke up today with "do it again" stuck in my head for no apparent reason even though i haven't heard the song in months, and then log on here and read this. that's pretty fucking eerie.

rest in peace.

i'm so pumped to listen to this. gonna try and carve out a few hours tonight and tomorrow to hear it all. i didn't order the physical box though, did you?

i'm always a little hesitant to order physical items like that because i don't want to look at everything once and then never take it out of the box again and feel like i wasted the money.
