  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    Whoa. Again, what a love music. I'm doubly envious. Enjoy!

    What concert are you seeing next?

    Thanks. My next show will be single Dawes. As much as I'd love to hear electric Dawes and Jeff Lynne's ELO-the lowest ticket price is $106. Seeing them as an opening band in a huge venue after seeing them in a record store might well diminish the stripped down free for fans show. I'm popping in and out of Chicago and not spending a penny to keep it completely free. It is a very cool thing to do for die hard fans.. I will buy something Dawes. Technically, my next show is the An Evening with Dawes 2018 Tour on Sept 8 at Codfish Hollow. Respect to Jeff Lynne and ELO I'd love to see them too..The show is completely sold out but for those resale buggers. So many shows these days. It's a great time to love music.

    He plays a lot of gigs in Chicago. It will be very interesting to see what they do. I saw them on the Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness tour. I waited until the day of the show and we got front row. They were amazing. I hope they stay together. Today is one of my favorite songs. Yet again, I am envious but very happy you enjoyed the show and had so much fun. You do realize you are Steelers territory and soon we shall be rivals, yes? Enjoy my grace while you can! 😒 J/K but I did live part of my childhood in the shadow of Lambeau Field so it's on, dmway. 😉 Much to my surprise, my next show is Dawes this coming Wednesday. They are playing in a local record store. It is a stripped down acoustic set. Earlier today, I made sure I'm getting into it. After the set, they are sitting at a table and signing Cds/Albums. I'm beyond excited. I already met the bassist when he was having a smoke backstage and he said hello. They know me and others because we are at so many of their shows and stand to be right up front. Meeting them in an official capacity is going to be weird.but I am psyched. They are also opening for Jeff Lynne's ELO at the United Center later that evening. I put out feelers for a cheap, cheap ticket to that show. I'm going to go broke but I don't care. It's music and I've never seen ELO. Two Dawes shows in one day? That is as good as it gets for me with music. I cannot believe I'm going to see them play in a record store. I shall have my fix sooner than I thought. I cannot sleep!

    The Headache Thread Rebooted

    There was a thread for people with headaches. It got lost in the transition to the now not so new Zoo. I'd like to restart it without defining anything.

    The Headache Thread Rebooted

    I've been getting botox shots and they help. It's 32 of them on the forehead and scalp and temples and back of the head and neck and shoulder blades. It sounds awful but is nothing next to a migraine that goes for days. I joke my way through it and I'm fine. One's head is a bit sore the next day or so. They last for three months and must be redone or the benefit is lost. I've been getting spg blocks. It is a syringe, from which a catheter goes up the sinus passages and squirts anesthesia into the cheekbones. It sounds much worse than it is. There is neither pain nor discomfort. They work if you have facial pain. The whole treatment takes two minutes. It's very simple. The problem is they cost five thousand dollars per session. More and more insurances are covering them now that opiates are such a problem. I just started seeing a PT guy who uses what is called Strain/Counterstrain Therapy. I am astounded how he knows right where to go and gets things to loosen. It works for all sorts of trauma, albeit head or back or other challenges people face. It is the first hope I have found which does not involve a pill or injection. It only hurts for a split second when he finds the spots and then he knows what to do and gets the pain to lessen. This is all FYI to anyone suffering.

    I just found out that Dawes is going to be at a local record store in Chicago, on Wednesday. They are playing a stripped down acoustic set and signing purchased copies of their new album. I also just found out how to make certain I'm in to see it. Yow. 😅
