    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I've been trying to tie what Bono said about going from innocence to experience...losing one while gaining another...getting some back again....I've been trying to tie this into my life. I finally found it all linked. I want to mention it: Whoopi Goldberg introduces Looney Tunes' DVD sets. She speaks of the racism contained in them. She mentions one's need to to put these cartoons into their proper time and place. She clearly states they are no longer intended for childrens' viewing. They are for adults.. I love Looney Tunes. I grew up glued to the TV when they were playing They make me giggle. I did not know, as a boy, that they were putting down another human being. They were funny. I would have hated them had I known what they implied. I only became aware of how offensive Looney Tunes could be when Miss Goldberg introduced the first DVD set I bought. (years ago) Now my precious Looney Tunes are putting down others? It was awful. I watched the strips many times in the ensuing years. I went through them, picking out this or that which now offended me. I was able to let go of it all because a black woman gave me permission to laugh despite their negativity.. She forgave and saw the good in them. I am happy to say I know watch them and giggle with the same innocence I had as a boy because I still don't think racist or hatefully. They are funny again. I'm psyched for the next leg of EI. It's finally time to start listening to SOE again. I gave it a break so I'd have a new something when U2 rocks Europe. woo hoo! 😊

    Hi mbastin72. Welcome to Zootpia.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I had a nice weekend, a disastrous Monday and it's a very pleasant evening. I wish I had written two out of three ain't bad because I concur. I'm also aware that I need to stop using the word concur. I'm trying to cut back but the withdrawals are bumming me out. Oh-another good thing...I decided to apply for the job of naming emojis in the Zoo. I'm pretty certain I could do a better job than, 'smiling face with open mouth and tightly closed eyes'. Even if they don't hire me, I might finally discern that description's true intent and be able to sleep at night. or We could have a Zootopia names the emojis day? A quip challenged revolt, I say! j/k I hope everyone is well. .😆
  4. Please, please, please bring back the SOI BluRay/Tshirt combo. I regret waiting to get it. That black tshirt with the yellow light was awesome. Normally, I don't like concert black Tshirts but that one was great.
  5. I would love to see a BluRay/DVD of various live performances which U2 has done over the years. Things like The Edge doing Numb on the MTV Video Music Awards and Every Breaking Wave from the EMAs and such would be a dream come true. I have YouTube but it's not the same as a physical copy of them all. There have been so many. It would be nice to have them in one collection. I like the idea of one disc. I do like the additional material discs as well. Perhaps both?

    What concert are you seeing next?

    I saw Ziggy Marley at Summerfest in June. We were walking by and stopped and watched. They always sound great. It's fun to watch the crowd but what is that strange odor that keeps wafting by me when I do? 👃

    The Mood Thread (Reboot)

    I'm happy we got rain because the trees were/are all looking very stressed. I'm sorry anyone has to breathe smoke and chemicals. I don't know where you live, illumination70. I hope those flames are doused and all becomes green again. I hate chemicals. I've hated them since the 1970's. I'm happy and sad that gentleman sued Monsanto and won $287, 000, 000. I'm sad he is terminally ill. I'm hopeful it's a beginning to the end of all of that crap being indiscriminately dumped. I'm getting ornery just thinking about it.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I'm happy to hear the YouTube video worked, CorkVegan. Many thanks. I was sitting in a park and eating lunch earlier. I looked over and saw a small herd of whitetail deer. There were several does and three bucks. I've never, ever seen two, leave alone three, bucks all together. It is very rare and lucky to even see one buck. The smallest buck had eight points. I counted fourteen points on one buck. They were munching on some dark green leafy veggies. It was very cool. I sat and watched them for quite a while. My lunch got cold because I didn't move and spook them but so worth it. It was probably a once in a lifetime happening. I love animals.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I dropped my phone and broke the screen. Dumb, dumb, dumb. I was looking at $130 to fix it. I found the kit for $55 and am doing it myself. Thus far, this is a good thing. I cannot afford another expense this month but was able to do my brakes for my car and pay for this and eat. I had to skip Dawes' acoustic set in Chicago but such is life.

    It is officially Irish Fest in Milwaukee. It is the largest Irish Fest in America. Great, great music and more. I also have a date and it's ten or so now with the same person. Irish Fest it shall be.

    Besides U2, who are your pick-me-up bands?

    I have been listening to REM a lot. Reveal is the album I'm most enjoying. It's overlooked by many. I'm also listening to Springsteen a lot; Magic is the big one for him. I'm also listening to Snow Patrol-Wilderness. Oddly enough, I've been listening to A Thousand Hours by The Cure and The Rose by Bette Midler and they make me feel good.

    Ticketing Rip Off The Band Need To Act

    I am repeating previous posts, however; they discounted tickets which were reserved for Citibank and Platinum seats before the show. I paid $106 for a $325 seat in Chicago. It helps if you are willing to go alone. Those are the first which got discounted; single seats. Good luck.

    No need, pain. You have talent. I see it as do others. This picture, once again, has very good composition. I'm no expert but know art.
