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!

oh that J-AN VF looks thick and JUICY!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:20 (twelve years ago) Permalink

oh no, I wasn't suggesting that this thread isn't valid, just noting the confluence.

xp get Wired. Wired's the quintessential airport magazine.

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:20 (twelve years ago) Permalink

eww!! i don't think i've ever bought an issue of wired!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:21 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I LIKE wired!

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:21 (twelve years ago) Permalink

really? is it good? i guess i've read some wired articles online... but BUYING a magazine about the internet always seems like a waste of money!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:22 (twelve years ago) Permalink

it's not about the internet, it's about science! and they have one or two really good writers (and some terrible ones).

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:23 (twelve years ago) Permalink

can i buy an issue of mondo 2000 instead?

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:23 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I mean, it IS kind of embarassing, but I enjoy it.

xp yes

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:23 (twelve years ago) Permalink

well i'll totally buy it if the VF isn't there. also the entertainment weekly this week looks boring!! it's like a summer wrap-up issue, fuck that, i don't wanna read past tense versions of the articles they've been writing since may!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:25 (twelve years ago) Permalink

what about a foreign newspaper?

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:28 (twelve years ago) Permalink

or a good mystery?

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:28 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Toblerone?

Remember s1ocki, it's the end of winter down there. But don't be surprised to see lots of long stockinged legs even with the winter coats.

I misread the thread title as I AM AN AIRPORT, so I was hoping it would be full of things like I AM AN AIRPORT COME AND LOOK AT TEH AIRPLANES TALKING OFF FROM ME.

It could well have been a lost Jonathan Richman song- the followup to "Rockin' Shopping Center" and the precursor to "I'm A Little Airplane."

Calgary = Canadian Cowboyland. (Well, a lot of cities are Canadian Cowboyland, but Calgary likes to think of itself as the capital of it. Also, ask LeCoq about how cool Calgary is.. hahahah)

the shoulder is... ok! i mean still spasming a bit but definitely definitely better than yesterday (going to bed last night w/horrible shoulder & everything else = the :(ness)

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 23:56 (twelve years ago) Permalink

my new job (just started last week!) is with a big radio company and we're working on doing some live recordings at you-know-where, and they have lots of 'secret shows' there during TIFF and we might record some. yee-ha! and yeah, they mentioned your posse was there and i thought "hey! i know one of those guys!" and then realized, no, i don't, i only exist on a messageboard with one of those guys! but would be cool to meet you...

the weirdest airport i was in was vientiane, laos. it was an 'international airport' and all that, but holy smokes it was like super lo-fi. and when i arrived there to get my early morning flight the airport wasn't even OPEN yet, and we had to wait for some guy to let the 20 or so of us waiting in! no magazines there, that's for sure! i was lucky to get a bottle of water!

City is easily the best airport, the fact the bars are the areas you wait in is a bonus. I don't find braying city types any more annoying than the ultimately similar variety of human stains you have to be around at any other airport but I'd agree generally that air travel is horrible and the people around you are generally really irritating/lacking in self-awareness.

For this reason also City is best, fewer queues, less walking, no grim maze of death by commerce like they've installed at Stansted both on the way through duty-free and in the horrendous food court circle that resembles that stone they all walk around in Midnight Express, arguably the most badly and brazenly designed public space I've ever been in.

I used to avoid Gatwick given that Stansted brings me back to Liverpool St and I live in Hackney, but I'm working v close to Victoria these days so Gatwick is very handy to get to from the office. I've been hugely surprised, particularly flying Easyjet, but in general really, at how calm and easy it is, short queues, lots of space, everything working very well. They fucked Stansted so badly when they redesigned it. Security queues included.

I'd agree generally that air travel is horrible

I flew on a gay plane up to Sydney yesterday. You could tell it was gay because of the rainbow Qantas logo.

I am in Luton Airport. For older readers, there is no sign of Lorraine Chase.

I use Luton more than any other airport -- two or three times a year at least, due mainly to it being the only "London" airport which has direct flights to Gdansk where the in-laws live apart from Stansted, which would entail not only travelling further but also using Ryan Air, which I have vowed never to use again on account of certain shyster tendencies. It's recently been voted the worst airport in the country but I can't honestly see why (NB this may be habituation).
