Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE, AUSTRALIA

    it's the transmitter you put in the car so you can use toll roads etc. so basically anything bigger than a one-way alley

    I don't think we have toll roads in NZ yet. Even if we did my Free buses courtesy of being a student would make them meaningless.

    Here they bill you via some elaborate databank scheme. They track you through the license plates.

    Edit: Val, that is extremely good service for students.

    The only real downside to living here personally is the lack of good bands who come here. Which has been getting alot better recently. Not being Australia or the North-East of England is also a huge plus.

    Nor in Perth, thank Christ. I don't think we're big enough for it to be worth it.

    Yeah. Because it's Canberra. It wouldn't be worth it for the whole 20 people who live there to use it.

    Australia's landmass is primarily composed of snips, snails, and puppy dog tails

    You ever try and draw Falcor as a giant dong? No? It just ends up looking like a long cyclops.

    ground beef, potato and onion. yum.

    Oh God there is an Italian place near us that does a roast chicken pizza. It's like BBQ sauce, roast chicken, potatoe (thinly sliced), leek, onion and mozarella.

    BDO hasn't had a good line up for quite a while. It still didn't stop tickets from selling out in 15 minutes.

    What the fuck, fucking neil young! There's actually a few other bands there that I would like to see, but nowhere near enough to pay whatever ridiculous price it is and fly to the other end of the country. Pendulum are good times.

    Without going back to the page the only bands I actually really want to see are Neil Young and Dropkick Murphys which isn't worth the $120 or w/e a ticket costs now plus buses and accomadation.

    I haven't been to a music festival in about 3 years and to tell you the truth, I'm happy that they're out of my life.

    After performing in a few of them, I could never go back to being a punter.

    I went to Soundwave for about 20 minutes last year, and that was only because I had a free ticket. I wanted to catch Infectious Grooves but the heat and the overwhelming douchebag factor made me wanna strangle myself.

    I went to 3 or 4 Big Days Out back in the day, but their focus seems to have shifted so Soundwave is definitely the festival I'd go to these days, lots more bands I'd want to see.

    I don't want to see any of them enough to spend a hot sweaty crowded day at the showgrounds though

    I'm too old for this shit

    festivals are generally overpriced nightmares, particularly when you get roped into drinking beer from 10 am

    Price has been the biggest factor in me skipping every music festival this year. The ticket plus accommodation and piss really turns the day into a $300 or $400 affair.

    Would have liked to have gone to Splendour this year, but my uni always has mid-terms then, which sucks. Besides that, I've already seen heaps of the acts in smaller venues, which is nicer.

    Oh God don't even talk to me about the Sydney Soundwave festival back in Feb08. Seriously.
