You know it
(I call the grey camos)
Thats disappointing dude, that bunching would put me off wearing it.
I think from time to time we all think we can save our old stuff. I pulled out my first tailored suit lastnight and gave it a try on, anyone would think I had it made up in the 80's, so much shoulder padding. I too was contemplating having the passing removed and a couple of other things but I think best to cut my losses and put the money towards a new one.
Labor politicians get rousing applause each week on Q&A for consistently inane, overly emotive comments that ruin any chance for meaningful discourse about policy, economics or ideology. You feel sorry for a Labor politician on a show which has a dominantly young, progressive leaning audience (both live and televised)?
The stats shown each week on Q&A with the Labor/Liberal split in the audience are a farce. I have countless progressive-minded friends who know that their best chance to pass the ballot for the live audience is to say they vote Liberal, which is what they say every time.
Having said this, the non-standard studio audience last night in Melbourne was filled with an equal split of Liberal and Labor hardline, unwavering automatons.
That was incredible. It's rare that an athlete is called an artist and it's actually true rather than bullshit hyperbole. You could see that over 30 years on, the people involved were still emotional about the event.
The subject is also covered (equally well) in the Ken Burns New York Documentary series. The film charts the rise and fall of the WTC, presenting Petit's walk as the zenith in the life of an otherwise quite ugly building (the nadir being, well... you know). Interestingly, though I remember 9/11 very clearly, it was not until I saw that documentary that I understood the symbolic power and impact of that event, as much a horrifying work of art as a pivotal moment in history.
