Here's a link to 2814's album "Birth of a New Day" on YouTube. (Apparently you're meant to write the name in full-width characters like that.)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9L4q-0Pi4E

They say "A collaboration between Vaporwave producers Hong Kong Express and t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者, 2814 is a project that creates cyberpunk-esque, dystopian yet psychedelic and relaxing ambient soundscapes. Drifting off into a daydream is hard to avoid as each track flawlessly flows into another, each with its own unique atmosphere."

I've noted previously in the thread that American student accommodation seems incredibly luxurious when compared with what's on offer over here. For example, the student apartments at 2818 Place, serving Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, offer amenities including basketball, a study room, clubhouse lounge, a resort style pool, business centre, private shuttles to TAMU and Blinn, and a fitness centre.

I could come up with something amazing as it is 28 twice, but New Scientist Issue 2828 has a feature about 'The Secret Life of Pronouns'. Shouldn't that be in a magazine on English?
