I'll listen to it properly tonight and tell you what I think tomorrow.

Nifty, I'll have to check that out on Youtube or something.

I'd watch it now but I think I'd rather wait till I get home to the DVD.

Oh Prague, I had forgotten about you.

Listening to it for the second time makes me realise, it's not just a song I don't like, it truly is f#cking awful! I don't know how they could do that.

Some Muse songs I don't like (usually at first, and then they grow on me) but damn Prague sucks dick.

I have a friend who is doing and acceleration program in Kanazawa this summer. She'll be doing two units work in about 10 weeks. I'm thinking about doing it next summer, but it's kind of expensive.

I can't think of the term they use (paraeducator maybe?), but I'm assuming what you'll be doing is something based around teaching English to Japanese middle/high school students? That's something that I've always thought would be cool to do, but I have too many problems to make that a reality. The one that I'd be doing would be ~6 weeks, and would be based on Japanese language more than anything. I think we have to do three classes. Fortunately, I'd only have to pay for transportation and spending money. Ideally I'd do a homestay, but that's not an option for this program. I'll probably know by the end of the week whether or not I'll be doing it, seeing that there's an info meeting Wednesday and I'll be talking to my parents about it if I decide I'll definitely want to do it.

Well actually, my program is based around language study. So it will be mostly studying Japanese, rather than English teaching, but there will be culture study in there too.

A homestay for me would be really good too. It's a shame they don't offer it in our programs. That way we could practise speaking and listening which are really hard to get a grasp of without using it really often. I think an in-country study program is a great opportunity for anyone. I've been to Japan before; it's an amazing country and the people are awesome

I hear this a lot from people I've talked to that go there often/relocated there. It's definitely somewhere I'd love to visit at least once.

It's a shame it gets such bad attention in the media. Apart from the whole whaling debacle, there really isn't anything to dislike about Japan. Except maybe how difficult the language is...

Ah, okay. I look forward to visiting the country at some point, I'd love to do so much and actually put the language to practical use outside of class. Even though I still have a ton to learn.

I don't really have anything to compare it to (I took Spanish in high school but that was a breeze since we took it at such a slow pace unfortunately), but I haven't found my class that difficult. In the future, I can see kanji becoming a huge pain, but vocabulary and grammar-wise, it hasn't been very problematic.

Unfortunately that's what shy's a lot of people away from the country. But I've heard once got it down it's loads of fun to speak in.

Okay, so this album is ****ing epic. No, seriously, I love these guys. They hit that middle ground between the hooky guitar work of Oceansize and musical complexity of Mogwai or GY!BE so well. Incredibly varied too. Their music mainly comes under the prog/post-rock label, but I've heard country, avante garde neo-classical, classic rock, blues and jazz influences, and even, I think, Scottish folk towards the end of one of the 10-minute long slices of epicness on the album.





I like it anyway.

better than 2nd law

If you got a scholarship for it, you shouldn't doubt yourself.

BTBAM's disc is incredible. I don't even mind the screaming on most of it. It's my album of the year so far.

I was at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, saw that painting, and immediately thought of you.

I like BTBAM occasionally, but most of the time I can't get over the "mish mash" philosophy of their "songwriting".

I'll agree that their transition between segments in songs can be abrupt, but they often seem to do it well, or moreso better than any other band I can think of (mostly because no one else does it )
