Well, that's fair enough, B. Some good things in amongst that lot.

What about Culture, Brett. Maybe I might have missed one or two things but 'Men at Work' and 'Rolf Harris' is a poor return wouldn't you say?


If you’re talking about music, I’m sure DL can enlighten you on the Melburnian Jazz/soul scene. He really vibes that stuff and says it’s well lit.

As for the plebs, I’m sure there’s something on here you’ll like - albeit I doubt you’ll put any of them on a pedestal as high as your idol Phil Collins.

Had to stop reading that link after looking at the first photo. Angus Young's family are from Tenby in West Wales, he moved to Oz as a little nipper.

I once had a few drinks with Angus backstage in Knebworth, we spoke fluent Welsh to each other for about half hour :thumbl:

I'll not read any more just in case Shirly Bassey is also included on your list of Aussie talent.

Fuck me, Rhys, you’re getting a bit confrontational on here these days. Yesterday telling Yeboah he had egg on his face (without capitalising it), now having a few digs at God’s Own Country and getting egg on your own.

You should take a leaf out of my book.

Reminds me of that Spitting Image song ‘I’ve Never Met A Nice South African’ and the closing line, ‘except for Breyten Breytenbach, but he emigrated to Paris’.

You can only allow Nick Cave because he came here and learned to be less Australian (I don’t mind Grinderman btw)

I admire the way that moob ridden James clearly ignored Patrick Stewart's advice when deciding what picture to put up.
The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter was that his name wasn't Henry Porter.

Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Years ago I worked with an Iraqi fella who was obviously bi-lingual and I asked him what language he thought in, he couldn't answer and I thought he was a thick cunt for not knowing. After reading that I think he must have thought in pictures and probably thought I was a thick cunt for asking.

Not something I had thought about, personally I have an internal monologue and had never imagined other people thought in a different way
We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

Have never given it a thought before.
But I assume that if i am sitting here wondering whether i have an inner voice, then that is my inner voice that i am 'hearing'.

As discussed in Another Place, this is a basic foundation for (the pseudo-scientific) NLP 'therapy'. The idea that we think* in one of three ways - visual (in pictures), auditory (sentences) or kinaesthetic (emotions) - gives the therapist a best route to persuading the subject, by reflecting their preferred language. Questions like 'do you see what I mean [by my suggestion]?', 'does that [suggestion] make sense?' and 'how does that feel [as a suggestion]?' can be used to make the subject feel more comfortable in answering, and so (the theory goes) to accepting the suggestion. It's basic hypnosis, really. (See also Derren Brown.)

* Very few of us think unilaterally in one of the three ways. More often, its a mix, but with a preference for one or other.

Yes, Devi. I see that now. You are very wise. I will do anything you say. Thank you, Master.

makes me wonder about short term memory. as an internal monologuer if i'm given a set of instruction i repeat them to myself to try and etch them into my mind, i would imagine the non-internal monologuers have a better more efficient method, akin to them stupid memory aid things which never work for me, where you remember a purple dog sitting under a lampost instead of the 3 of hearts.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

I don't want to get anyone annoyed by straying slightly o/t :lol: , but those memory aid things don't work for me either. Load of old bollocks.

Taught myself the phonetic alphabet when I was a young 'un, by repetition. Stuck ever since. I find that writing something down helps me to remember it too, especially at work.

i also internally monologue'd this post before I typed it up.

ka-BOOM! Contains arXiv link to the paper.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.
