    MacPhisto fansite

    Since there is so much interest in Mr MacPhisto at the moment, I thought you might like to check out my dedicated MacPhisto fansite if you haven't been there recently or ever. Among other things I've added a brand new transcripts page for the EI Tour, which will obviously be expanded as the tour goes on. (It will take me a little while longer to bring this page up to date with the latest developments. This whole thing has come as a massive surprise - even though I argued that it was the perfect time to bring MacPhisto back, I never thought they would actually do it!!)

    Anyone else burst out laughing at this news story today? "Big Mac, I call him. But actually, now that I think about it, he's more... the Burger King!"

    Customs Duty

    I had it happen once (maybe twice?) a few years back, but not recently. No idea why there's sometimes a customs fee and sometimes not. It does suck having to pay even more when the items are quite expensive to begin with.

    Happy New Year

    Thank you U2 for giving me the best year of my life, and thank you friendly Zootopians for giving me someone to share it with. Hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2019!

    Writing this mainly to prevent the thread from archiving itself before I've finished with it. I haven't forgotten that dmway asked me to post here when the website is fully updated, but it's been such a busy couple of months that I haven't had much time to work on it. Hopefully I'll get back to it very soon!

    I've always considered this to be a classic Larry quote... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vtd5K-QjJlw&t=17m08s

    U2 dreams

    I had a U2 nightmare the night before last. I was going to see a show in Manchester, which is somewhere I've never been in real life. I turned up early in the morning to join the GA queue, and was quite relieved to find it, as I had no idea where it would be. Even better, there were only 20-odd people ahead of me! We had to wait outside for a couple of hours until the building opened, like in London. Then just as they let us inside, I suddenly noticed that everyone had a number on their hand except me - I'd forgotten I needed to get one! So I had to go right to the back of the queue, losing hundreds of precious places. Arrrgghh! That's when I woke up and found it wasn't real anyway. Jeez, the tour is over - why am I still having anxiety dreams about the GA line?!

    I assume you have to resubscribe in order to receive the downloads, since it's all part of next year's subscription package.

    2019 Subscription - Subscribers Gift

    I resubscribed early so I can get the downloads in January instead of waiting. (I might have left it until the end of the year, but I wasn't sure how long the option to resub early would remain available.)

    OMG, an actual CD (and photo book)?! I was all ready to hurl something at my computer screen if it turned out to be another vinyl gift. Thank you U2.com!!

    MacPhisto fansite

    I still need to update some other parts of the website, but you can now enjoy every single MacPhisto speech in text, audio or video form here (with references explained, if you need it). Thanks so much to all the streamers and tapers and filmers for letting us hear these! I'd love to know which ones were your favourites. If I really had to choose, I think I'd go with Philadelphia 1 from North America and Madrid 1 from Europe. To the band, Marc, and everyone else who helped to make this happen - I can never thank you enough for what you have given me over the past few months. Enough joy to last a lifetime. ❤️ Now I can officially stop whining about the lack of MacPhisto references on every tour!

    Personal U2 show charts calculator

    I've now heard 81 different songs live! Vertigo is my most-heard song - 13 times, even though I've only seen 12 shows, haha.

    The happiness derived from this horned gentleman is quite often the only thing that prevents the bastards grinding me down, so it's very appropriate that this song is now associated with him. ❤️

    Favourite tour of the last 4 years?

    Not a straightforward choice for me. In terms of the overall production, I think IE was the best. JT is easily the one I enjoyed most in person (that indoor stage & screen layout just didn't work at all for someone as short as me). But EI had MacPhisto, which means more to me than anything! So... *shrug*

    I will! So much to say about this European leg, this might keep me busy into next year.

    Words are better, every time. Thank you. I was certainly not expecting to spend half my year transcribing speeches, but nothing could have made me happier than dropping everything to do so.

    Berlin Live Thread #U2eiTour

    I just wanna say thanks to everyone here for the pleasant company over the past few months. This forum is like a breath of fresh air compared to the others I've tried - it's so nice to find somewhere I can talk about my favourite songs/albums and have people actually *agree* with me, instead of insulting me! Often I feel quite lonely in this fandom, so I've really enjoyed hanging out with you guys during the shows.
