  • Speaker: The Architecture of Elsewhere,

    Talk about bad architecture, what's the story behind those dreadful supposedly temporary prefab classroom's that get trucked in when class numbers start to swell, and never leave.
    Freezing in winter, boiling in summer, with windows that dont allow airflow. If I was a parent I'd be suing the Dept of Education for cruel and unusual punishment of minors.

    And I have heard anecdotally that the Dept of Education can side-step building regulations or can ignore them with impunity.
    I've have a look but govt web sites don't usually have that kind of incriminating info on them.
    Anyone?

    but the shopping mall story started out as a joke by one of the staff.

    Cause they were pissed off at having to leave Avalon and commute to AK?

    My usual part, the Other.

    Just wait till the bio-ports are operational.

    I used to like a very sedate form of game, don't know if there is an equivalent nowadays. I think it was called "Myst" or something.
    Im not a shoot 'em up person, but I liked those arcade games skiing, bike riding.
    Must get out more.

    From the Jackson/Cameron IV;

    but I think the heart of the cinematic experience is the group experience. It's the psychology of sitting in a dark room with a bunch of people and reacting to something, and feeling like your reaction is the same as the rest of the group, a way of proof-checking your emotions are normal.
    Jackson: Or not.
    Cameron: If you're the one guy laughing out of 400 people, you're obviously out of step.

    So there folks groupthink please. I'll just wait till I can get my USB port surgery for downloads from my local doctor.
    Ben your posts make hilarious reading.

  • Hard News: Holiday Musings,

    Where's that quote from, Andin? (Or is that you paraphrasing?)

    I saw both Cameron and Weaver talk about the ecological backstory/message in the film in i/v's on tv and say it was subtle(not quoting directly). I guess in relation to the cardboard cutout characters and the emphasis on the technology to them it was.
    I'll go back and look Sigourney Weaver's i'v on The Daily Show that's the first place I remember seeing it.
    Then I saw Cameron in an i/v voice a similar sentiment on a News clip I cant tell you the channel.

    James Cameron is Canadian.

    I take it all back then. Shows how much interest I have in JC.
    The shit storytelling, and all the gushing about the "understated ecological message of the film" ....not my cuppatea.
    Battle? It was a massacre.

  • Hard News: Holiday Musings,

    It was dopey as all get out, with a trite message and unoriginal story

    The ending, with teh evil colonisers being shipped back to earth seemed like Cameron's attempt to redress his countries disgraceful history toward the indigenous tribes.
    Wounded Knee still happened Jimmy, you can't fantasise it away.

    Jeez, could you guys possibly look for a fact or two to go on before cranking up your grand chorus of disapproval? Your-tutting is keeping people awake in neighbouring countries.
    Personally, if I was a 24 year-old pop star, I'd be havin' it large.

    You jump to conclusions Sir. I don't disapprove and am not tut-tutting.
    She can and will do as takes her fancy.
    It's just so much easier on the mind, having it large, after a visit to the accountant.
    Im envious, if you want something to bash me over the head with.
