    Blessings for New Zealand

    Fraser Anning's response to the attack was despicable. The video of him getting egged at his little press conference today was very pleasing.

    Take care of yourselves, NZ folks.

    Happy Birthday Adam Clayton!

    Happy birthday Lord Adam (as Bono called him at the O2 in October)!

    44823 - Sad counting after hearing of the death of Keith Flint. Rest in peace you twisted firestarter.

    Absolutely gutted to learn that Keith Flint has died. I saw The Prodigy twice a few years back and those were two absolutely mindblowing shows. Rest in peace you twisted firestarter. πŸ–€

    Just listened. LOVED that performance of Song For Someone. In fact, if you listen to the second chorus going into the guitar solo on this version, you hear Bono sing "A song for someone...like me". Oh wow. And of course, what is there I could say about The Little Things that I haven't already said and isn't perfectly encapsulated in this performance?

    are U2 coming to austalia or not?

    Possibly. At the end of the E&I tour it was reported that U2 have asked their crew to make time for the second half of 2019, which apparently will be for some Aus/New Zealand shows (https://www.u2songs.com/news/ready_for_whats_next), AND, according to latest rumours, could be Joshua Tree shows. https://www.atu2.com/news/article/rumor-u2-to-bring-joshua-tree-tour-to-oceania-this-year.html

    44808 - Went out for a stroll along the seafront earlier as the sun was out and it wasn't freezing cold. I felt good. 😎 Then, of course, I remembered that the reason the weather's like this in February is of course global warming. 😢😢😢

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Listening to Summer of Love and Red Flag Day right after The Blanket of Night by Elbow. The Blanket of Night came out on their album The Take Off and Landing of Everything in 2014 and touches on the same things - it's about a refugee couple on a boat sailing away from whatever hell they've left behind to a new home. Turns it works well when followed by Summer of Love and Red Flag Day.

    R.I.P. Thread

    Someone did actually make a video to mark his passing - but it's incredibly respectful. It contains clips from many of his other movies. I always found his performance of Hitler in Downfall to be something truly incredible; it was like he was being inhabited by him.

    U2 needs to burn for love again...

    I think they still do. If there's one thing I noticed on Songs of Experience that I hadn't felt on Songs of Innocence or No Line On the Horizon, it was just how present the theme of love was. It's a hard feeling to find in much of the world these days, I will admit, but when I listen to that album I feel it fiercely.

    44777 - Of course it took me until Valentine's Day to realise just how lonely I've been lately. Been slogging non-stop at work over the last two months which meant I didn't get to see any of my extended family over Christmas and barely any of my immediate family. Barely seen my friends at all lately, and of course on today of all days I'm seeing couple photos plastered across my entire social feed. Half my friends at my age are either in a solid relationship, engaged or having kids, and of course I just have to sit and see all of it.

    44766 - I know the feeling. I'm currently have to look for jobs as my current one isn't giving me enough hours to sustain a living. The constant cycle of rejection is getting me down. 😞 You're not alone.

    44652 - Oh man that's sad to hear. Gonna miss shouting "COME ON MURRAY!" and "YES MURRAY!" at the TV when Wimbledon's on. Wish him all the best.

    U2 Experience + Innocence Tour POLL

    One of the most dramatic live tracks from the band I've ever seen, especially so early on in the show.
  22. Felt the need to ask this question. I honestly can't bring myself to give an answer because I genuinely don't know.

    44601 - Speaking of my job, just found what might be my favourite quote from Bono - "Just don't p*ss off the pizza man -- you're going to depend on him!"
