    Yes, a Happy Birthday to two of the men I respect the most in my life: Bono and my Dad. May 10th is a blessed day indeed.

    So I was watching Bohemian Rhapsody for a second time last night and something I did not notice when I saw this movie in the cinema was four guys portraying the members of U2 dressed in the same gear they wore that day during there Live Aid performance passing Freddie Mercury on his way to the stage. Pretty cool I thought!

    Yes, the setlist is the most intriguing part in speculating before the shows actually take place. Obviously, JT, SOI, and SOE will feature prominently (as they should); however, that doesn't leave a big proportion of the set left over for songs that people want to hear and/or the band feel like playing. I think that "Acrobat" would have to be played again (thus, MacPhisto should be going Down Under as well ) - but the rest of the set, my goodness, how would you pick the few slots left over? Yes, and a new U2 album is always good news!

    Okay, so Joshua Tree shows after all. This is just going to make me nostalgic for The Joshua Tree show I was at now! What I do hope for this is that they find some way to fit SOI/E tracks into the set as well, because they’ve only done those songs in the US & Europe (unless you count Best Thing being played on The Joshua Tree tour in South America). One thing I also noted from u2songs was “we have been told the band will start work on a new album after this tour.” Even more good news!

    I would also say that if someone sends an ID like this that 1) he can't sign it as "Bono" when that's not the printed name and 2) it looks like a photo-shopped picture, especially if you look around his ears and top of head. Definitely if anyone else gets an ID like this, do not take that as proof, there are criminals who professionally make fake IDs for whoever wants one so it's not a leap to think they would do it to try to fool people into believing they are a celebrity.

    The way I see it religion is a human construct. If you look back into the Bible Jesus told his followers that you can have a direct relationship with God. There is no need to go through the middle men with their rituals, money changing and power structure. When asked how a person could pray as an individual Jesus gave them the Lord's prayer. It is exactly the same with Buddhism and others... the founder advocated a personal interaction with the Divine but when the founder passed away humans quickly inserted themselves between God and people. Basically "You have to go through us to get to God, and it's not a free service brothers and sisters." But each to their own, find what works for you. There are people who find support in being part of a community and that is great. If it helps you to go through a middle man then good, whatever works for you. However you don't need to. The Divine is everywhere and everyone. They don't just hang out in churches and temples.

    Yeah spotted that. However U2 did not walk off stage when Queen walked on at Live Aid. I loved Bohemian Rhapsody but let’s just say the film is historically inaccurate in many ways.
