i just got in from one myself. and i'm cranky. but that has more to do with the plane ride.

Is this an experimental review of The Terminal?

I was disturbed to discover a juice bar in the airport on Friday called Love Juice.

MarkH (MarkH), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:46 (twenty years ago) link

That's to get the mile-highers in the mood and lubricated.

penelope_111, Monday, 14 June 2004 11:47 (twenty years ago) link

I haven't heard the expression "love juice" since I was 16.

Markelby (Mark C), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:47 (twenty years ago) link

How are the Cranky Itchers?

DB should have arrived in NYC by now.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:47 (twenty years ago) link

i'm so bored.

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:53 (twenty years ago) link

Fuck shit up.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:54 (twenty years ago) link

Up! Fuck! Shit! In that order!

Markelby (Mark C), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:56 (twenty years ago) link

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 14 June 2004 12:00 (twenty years ago) link

Markelby (Mark C), Monday, 14 June 2004 12:08 (twenty years ago) link

s1ocki (slutsky), Tuesday, 15 June 2004 11:25 (nineteen years ago) link

i had a layover in Dallas. they have the fucking coolest thing. the Aqua-Massager,. you lay in this waterproof sleeping bag type thing with all your clothes on in the middle of the airport and get pelted with hard streams of water while everyone can watch. very weird. had it been a little more private, i woulda thought it was kinda cool

I'm currently in front of gate 210 in ONT waiting on JetBlue to take me to JFK.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:45 (nineteen years ago) link

The ONT terminal is nice in a late-90s shopping mall sort of way, but the layout is horrible with one long linear line of gates so you have to walk miles. Additionally, there are no electrical power outlets near the seating, you have to sit on the floor in the middle of the walkway.

At least the wireless is free.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:47 (nineteen years ago) link

Oh yeah, there's an ant problem here too.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:47 (nineteen years ago) link

Hell yes, it's ant season. Mine's coming for a stay next week.

Have a good time in NYC, Elvis.

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:51 (nineteen years ago) link

There's a LOT of ants here. If this was anything smaller than a giant airport terminal building we'd be re-enacting Phase IV here.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:01 (nineteen years ago) link

What kind of ants and what's the nature of your trip?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:10 (nineteen years ago) link

Standard-sized house ants.

Going to NYC to see JBR, take more of my stuff out in advance of the October move, and to go see Devo & the Yeah Yeah Yeahs(as mentioned on this thread)

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:17 (nineteen years ago) link

I also win because I was able to score an exit row seat at the last minute. Hooray for extra leg room!

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:18 (nineteen years ago) link

Leg room is a big plus So's the Devo date. Exactly when are they playig?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:26 (nineteen years ago) link

Friday night in Central Park with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. There's an ILM thread about it.

Anyway, getting on the plane now

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:31 (nineteen years ago) link

Happy landings!

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:33 (nineteen years ago) link

Make that 100, and you'd be right.

(Wish I'd actually thought to look for this thread on Thursday, when I was actually in an airport.

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:16 (eighteen years ago) link

i'm holding it down though. soon i'll be in another airport, and i'll have like 4 hours to kill!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:17 (eighteen years ago) link

I'll be in two airports next week. One in Canada! Calgary! I've never been to Canada before. I'll be there for all of an hour!

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:18 (eighteen years ago) link

actually, three airports.

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:18 (eighteen years ago) link

what's your second airport?

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:18 (eighteen years ago) link

will it be "come straight back"

^^ some new inspiration for the perfume thread perchance!

Le Bateau Ivre, Sunday, 2 February 2020 12:00 (four years ago) link

I’d generally say I would never stoop to wearing perfume found at airports but I am passing through Doha so perhaps they have the good stuff.

I’m going to Bali and afaik there have been no cases of coronavirus at all in Indonesia so far but two thirds of the conference attendees are from Australia and the rest are from various parts of Asia so there is probably a perceived risk much stronger than any actual risk.

On my way to the airport. I'm wondering how apocalyptic it'll be.

romanesque architect (pomenitul), Friday, 13 March 2020 06:38 (four years ago) link

Feel you might be disappointed if the airports here are anything to go by these days. Unless you really sense the coming apocalypse in everything being near-empty and eerily quiet? But do share if everything's ablaze (and pick a nice bm record to accompany the scene)! Bon chance, man.

Le Bateau Ivre, Friday, 13 March 2020 08:02 (four years ago) link

Thanks! I'll find out in a few minutes… But yeah, it's way likelier to be a whimper rather than a bang, as ever. With a bit of luck our plane will empty a swell.

romanesque architect (pomenitul), Friday, 13 March 2020 08:05 (four years ago) link

Safe flight, pom.

gramsci in your surplice (gyac), Friday, 13 March 2020 08:27 (four years ago) link

Thanks, gyac. Airport seems as packed as ever, there are just more face masks than usual. Kind of disappointed tbh.

romanesque architect (pomenitul), Friday, 13 March 2020 09:01 (four years ago) link

hope all goes well pom

At BWI with people eating all around me and one woman with a Green Bay Packers sweatshirt (so you know she’s unvaxxed) defiantly unmasked.

the airport is the only place where I see white people from the suburbs or whatever and I hate all of them so much

G. D’Arcy Cheesewright (silby), Wednesday, 16 November 2022 23:51 (one year ago) link

yeah I mean like, people get sick at the airport _anyway_


yeah i mean i was wiping down my seat and tray table and sometimes wearing a mask even before covid— getting sick from a flight experience happened to me a few too many times when i was younger.

also cosign re suburbanites— jesus these people are so normie and awful

Living in London has really taken any affection I had for airports out of me lol. The standardization is a bummer too, like every airport in Europe now having that damn duty free shopping corridor you need to go through.

My flight was booked for 6am so I stayed up and left the house at 3:15am. Flight was changed to 9:45am so I tried napping supine on the banks of chairs. It was phenomenally uncomfortable!

There’s a Sammy’s here (as in Hagar). Do I go for some tequila?

werewolves of laudanum (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 1 September 2023 00:24 (nine months ago) link

It’s a good tequila and I think you deserve it. Try not to show up in a viral video later.

Josefa, Friday, 1 September 2023 00:30 (nine months ago) link

I was desperate enough to hear a follow up to 1984 that I gave 5150 another chance last weekend after nearly 30 years of abstinance. Starting with "Dreams", i made it as far as "reach for the golden ring" on my first attempt before switching it off.

The second time through was unbearably sad, though. It's the optimism for a future that never materialized, where you know you're watching a tragedy but the actors still think it's another kind of play. Part of it is def that there's a certain brand of corporate modernism preserved in amber, like they've ditched the laser grid of 1984, put on a blazer and stepped into the Frasurbane Mcdonalds. But also the energy of a new creative partnership that seems full of promise but already peaked.

Oh, Sammmy, I'd love a tequila TY for offering.

So I get to Orlando International Airport to get my mother. I miss the turn for cell phone lot so I cut through Departing Flights cos it's empty.

Few lights illuminated, unusually dark. I see this item lying there in my lane almost immediately and swerve out of the way.

It's a fucking car bumper. No cones to warn about it or any attempt to clear it, just this serious road hazard sitting there right almost immediately after you bank left.

This Airport is just more and more bizarre every day.

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 11 June 2024 01:58 (three days ago) link

maybe it had fallen off the previous car to pass through and you were the first person to have the opportunity to clear it

bae (sic), Tuesday, 11 June 2024 02:04 (three days ago) link

Probably lucky it wasn't landing gear or some other important part of a Boeing plane.

Jaq, Tuesday, 11 June 2024 02:07 (three days ago) link

I'm going with the more likely explanation that there was an accident that occurred there a while ago

Xpost yeah ain't nobody wanna be Donnie Darkoed

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 11 June 2024 02:08 (three days ago) link

In any case I couldn't see what it was until I had already swerved out of its way. Due to lack of lighting

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 11 June 2024 02:09 (three days ago) link

I was in the Austin airport last week and it wasn't bad except for having to walk almost a mile outside in 100 F heat to get to the taxi/rideshare pickup location.

Jaq, Tuesday, 11 June 2024 02:10 (three days ago) link

Oi that's brutal

Iacocca Cola (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 11 June 2024 02:16 (three days ago) link

free bumper, dude
when I was in Austin they had an entire section of the lower parking garage set up for uber/whatever that was attached to the airport but warm. did they move it?

ɥɯ ︵ (°□°) (mh), Tuesday, 11 June 2024 03:56 (three days ago) link

I say warm as a pejorative here because the air wasn’t moving and it was just a bit toasty

ɥɯ ︵ (°□°) (mh), Tuesday, 11 June 2024 03:57 (three days ago) link

Maybe it was the gates I flew into but yeah had to walk through a section of parking garage then go up a floor then walk some more to the pickup zone

Jaq, Tuesday, 11 June 2024 04:25 (three days ago) link

no good!
