You do know however that I either made or am referenced in like >10% of RMT titles, right?

Carrying over from the last thread, 60 degrees is infinitely more pleasant than 90 degrees. One I can dress for, the other I'd rather just wait out.

A tip to my neighbors: Blow Up Fireworks Day is July 4th, not the entire week leading up to it. You don't need to practice and fill up my evenings with your noise pollution. While I realize that things have changed in America over the past week, the mechanism for lighting a firecracker remains the same this July 4th as it always has and always will. You haven't forgotten how to do it. Thank you.

It's been a warm winter in Kangaroo Fighting Land, not sure what you're complaining about.

Also, the idea that people are dying in 35 degree heatwaves is fucking laughable.

In my old apartment I faced out to the beach along the lake, and anytime there was a holiday between May and October there were fireworks and bonfires constantly for about a week before and after. People in this town fucking love colourful explosions.

I'm still functioning, I just hate being hot. And this isn't like Florida where everything is air conditioned.

I'm fucking loving these wonderful 10-15 degree maximums in Melbourne right now. Last night was the perfect night to do a pub crawl for mulled wine. I'm surprised I'm not hungover today.

Mulled wine. Mulled cider.

You think that sucks, they started here last week and usually keep blowing up the ones they don't use in the two prior weeks the week after the 4th.


I'm hoping the town doesn't do fireworks this year. The dog loses her mind, and the parade in the morning is annoying enough. There are a couple banners up in town with an address to a gofundme page urging people to save the fireworks. And because I was curious, I went to their page the other day. And I was pleased to see they'd raised 1600 of the 15,000 they were trying to raise (which was apparently a scales back version of the 18,000 dollars they apparently spent last year).

So, one cool feature of Apple Music: Anything that an artist shares through Connect can be added to your library and downloaded DRM free. Just downloaded the new Beach House single that way.

Here's the cover art Apple Music Connect has for the Sparks single:

First: fuck fireworks in any and all of their forms.

Second: Laz, regarding More, most of it is vocal to my recollection - some of it great (Cirrus Minor is one of my top Floyd songs) and some of it atrocious (A Spanish Piece).

I'm surprised at the hostility to fireworks. Guy Fawkes Night is one of my fondest childhood memories and I was gutted when I moved to Australia and found out it's no longer observed here. I haven't experienced a Guy Fawkes Night since I was nine.

If I recall, More is a good example of a lyricist writing for another singer - all of the lyrics were written by Waters, but sung by Gilmour.

Two things. First of all, I am pretty excited today. I recently matched with a really quite attractive girl on Tinder. I looked at her bio, and she still plays Pokemon. We started chatting, at first about Pokemon, then about music. She hadn't nothing to say about U2 being my favourite gig ever (probably a good thing, U2 fans are generally suspect) but said hers was Radiohead. At that point I suggested we take the conversation to a bar as it was going to be very hard for me to talk about Radiohead over text. So we're meeting up

And second of all, Iggy Pop's Lust for Life is one of my favourite albums. It's very underrated. It's seriously like having another late 70s Bowie album. Turn Blue is the only dud track for mine, and the two popular favourites, the title track and The Passenger, would probably both be in the bottom three. Some Weird Sin (incredible intro/post-chorus/outro riff), Tonight (lovely heartfelt tune), Fall in Love With Me (bouyant, full-of-swagger tune about spotting a girl at the bar) are the absolute tits. Sixteen is dirty as fuck, Success is one of the great "fucking yeah! I am awesome!" songs ever. Really great album, and probably about time I heard another Iggy album, at the very least The Idiot.

Ignore these grumps, fireworks are the best thing.

I really don't think Lust for Life is underrated. It's a hugely acclaimed album with two big hitz.

And I agree that it's a very good record.
