Well, if they just keep their stadium E.D.M. out of my club, that’s fine …
*cough* Pretty Lights *cough* ; ) ...which I enjoyed as much as you I think, and the extended "filthy break" in the middle of act two was I reckon just a thoughtful gesture for us old timers so we could go and get a breather and come back in for the last run.
BTW Gramatik plays here soon, and this has been on loop for me a while:
Thanks for the choons, perfect Friday arvo music. Just saying.
90125 was the first album I ever bought. Went halves with my brother.
Also have a copy of Relayer, bought second hand in a book and record exchange in Greerton. Mostly for the cover art.
Note to self: Must buy a "record player".
+1 for Frampton.
I've met some very nice people through twitter, with whom I have no other intersection or communication. And even made good business contacts that weren't the usual blog-driven yucky stuff.
And although the honeymoon is over I'm still there and working hard at being more interesting than my coffee consumption. Despite its rep for truncated meaninglessness it can be a pretty nice place if you spend time pulling out the weeds and watering the flowers.
You do find yourself talking about it a lot though. Its a threadjacker offline too, and its awesome power lies its in ability to inspire people to form an opinion about you, and it, within moments of its mention.
And it makes posting a comment feel luxurious in length.
That probably sounded more snarky than I meant. Sorry!
The only thing less interesting than twitter is people talking about how uninteresting they find twitter.
Sounds like you had a mint Easter though. Nice.
For me, I like the bridge over the toll road. It seems rather extravagant but probably is very worthy.
life is always boring, everything is always kind of shitty and just getting worse, and the human race just strengthens the case that God should have gone with the roaches, but you keep buggering on regardless...
and *then* The Nolans.
Shameless like for those 2 posts. Nice.
I enjoyed Ak much much more after I'd gone away and come back. I felt like it had everything I'd missed about home *and* everything I'd gone away looking for but didn't find.
Debt owed to Russell (and Chad Taylor too - thanks man!) for writing about an Auckland with intrinsic value, an aucklandy aucklandness that delivers quite apart from the tiresome comparisons to other towns local or international. Your words help me tell others how I feel about why we chose this as home.
Was a little unnerved initially by the floaty whiteness, but dig down into the content and the reading area is serenity+.
Customisation is a meh for me, but my measure is how quickly I can burn through a bunch of interesting articles and still like the site I'm reading them on.
This new Stuff works for me, it seems someone, or a collective miracle of willpower took a stand and kept it clean, clear and uncluttered? Ups for that - many have tried but few succeed in pulling off that trick.
