    Relatively dull in most facets of life. An occasional spark of inspiration tends to go untested. Having said that, it occurred to me this might be interesting.....hmmm, no I suppose not. What was the question again ?

  1. RZ Night 1 to trade for RZ Night 2 LV

    I guess title did not say it all...sorry... 1 ticket trade from night 1 for night 2.
  2. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Any honest opinion is obviously legitimate , but one aspect of this album which I think is undeniable, is that it is an incredibly thoughtful album. It's incredibly honest, nuanced in some metaphorical mis-directions and I suspect, likely written quickly. Someone else here mentioned it seemed rushed. I think there is immense difference in rushing or pushing something out and being deeply inspired. If you experienced those moments, you know how the words, actions, art...whatever it might be, just 'write' themselves. This is an age 50 something- WAR There is such anguish and despair. There is hope, but its not naïve and may not be optimism per se. Just hope or a personal prayer possibly. It exists but isn't a guaranteed save. We all know the U2 character - esp Bono's, well enough after all these years to appreciate, the man has such deep soul and empathy - and evidently, is a tough enough dude to just go after those people or situations that cause so much harm. I am loving it now. I didn't initially. But in knowing where these tunes come from and not getting any younger myself, we have to consider the message, don't let evil win in your community or in the world. Call it out. I couldn't agree more. And so I sing these songs ( privately in my car ! - if you heard my voice you would appreciate that ) and they become 4 dimensional. Cheers.
  3. Title says it all...however since you dropped in. cool is this going to be ? U2 /ARENA/LV/UP CLOSE/ LUCKY STUFF !!
  4. Red Zone in LV - 5/12 available

    Hey. If you have an extra RZ for night 2, I will trade you one for Night 1. LMK if that develops. Cheers.
  5. In those moments when I look at the many things I am grateful for as my life moves along, I find I have to truly say how lucky I feel I have been to live during the time of U2. That's it. All done. Lucky.

      You get it which is cool to share. 

  6. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    That is a cool song. My son must be getting into my era of music a fair bit - loves the drums- and mentioned to me yesterday that RED FLAG DAY's opening sounds like the start of something The English Beat might have put out....ska with your tea anyone ?!
  7. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY is scoring a tad more than a couple others, for me. On the backing singers concept, I like the idea of simply having a really vocally talented lady and gent.
  8. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I'm finding that these songs really lend themselves to the idea that U2 should take a background singer or two on this tour. Any thoughts on that ?

    Sie Vous Plait ....If you please. I just like the way it sounds more in French !
  10. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Agreed. It's a bit arrogant for me to say this but I think that's part of Newsman's situation. I wanted to draw some parallels to where my head was at. Not super far part from his. I had to separate church from state to appreciate the disk fully.
  11. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I actually get what Newsman is referring to in broader terms. My feelings on the disk have turned nicely and I am grateful. But as Newsman writes better than I, the machine, the corporation that is U2 and its partners is really not serving the people, the fans, as it should. It's kind of like the idea of democracy in America. If you vote, you get to pick from 2 people who about 100 other people in a population of millions, decided would be THE choice. TM, ON...they tell us what they are doing is in our interest. Those are just words but many hear or read the words and assume, since they were spoken or written, they must be true. I'm really grateful the disk itself brought me back from intense disillusionment with it all, but just barely. Obviously U2 carry a pedigree that can't be overlooked despite legitimate reasons to be cynical, sick and frankly tired. But then again, who would have thought our beloved and benevolent leader of Burma would turn 180. So, maybe music can continue to save souls, but now a days at U2 shows, the cost for salvation and sincere access to fans, is bizarrely nasty.
  12. Vegas, Baby!

    I think the reasons vary from fan to fan but as a fan, especially being solo, the atmosphere and mobility of being on the floor together is pretty electric. Pretty cool. I'm lucky to have RZ for night 1 and would buy a RZ or GA for night 2. Which as mentioned before, happily includes a couple drinks !!
  13. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Lol. The whole thing ? Or just the parts the reflect the narcicistic imploding of America as we know it ?

    Like many, I will be at night 1 in LV, but also like many, I need 1 GA or RZ for night 2. Happy to buy either and happy to add some drinks to the mix as well. Would really love to get to night 2 in the 'fan zone'. Cheers.
  15. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    There is some intelligent nuanced magic....let it reach you. That does not mean you have to like everything or anything, but if you appreciated them for many moons, I think you might get some of what is on the plate and being served. GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY kills me. I love it. Juxtapose and reveal the absolute crazy and absurd life that exists in the US right now by not giving a free pass to the people. Beautifully, intelligently written and played. Cheers.
