    My Owl Drawing

    I've noticed a theme in your photography and drawings that has to do with trees - which is totally cool. I especially like the owl drawing (the entire drawing).

    My Owl Drawing

    Chris, I find it almost disturbing that I didn't know u were so artistically talented! The moon in the sky in your owl drawing looks like a black pearl on a shell. I'm thinking u meant to do that. And if u didn't, then maybe it was subconscious - & just go with it! Did u notice that your tree drawing is in the 'featured' gallery? As it should be! : )
  3. CAM! That is the strangest post I have ever read u post! I'm laughing my head off because I don't know what the heck you're talking about - what the heck u mean! (Which is kind of cute.) Are you: a ) making this up for fun, b ) sharing w/ us a nightmare you had, c ) telling us something you read or heard somewhere - but something's being left out of the story, d ) talking about something having to do w/an inside joke that other people here might understand but I don't? e ) or maybe you're pulling a joke on all of us - maybe just waiting to see if anyone will ask what that's all about? Etc.
  4. "It's grace. How sweet the sound." ~Bono.

  5. Bono is an Awesome human I Love - but he's not God & he wouldn't want to be called that.

  6. surrenders said: "Corporations rule nations and now artists." Well, at least U2 is in artistic control & have the power of their position. Not all musicians are so lucky, of course: Check it out man, I LOVE this letter! One musician takes a stand against an industry's abuse of musicians: http://www.digitalmusicnews.com/permalink/2013/11/06/whitey
  7. "...I have resolved to take a less hands-on role..." What Achtung Guy said about being sorry to see him step away. "Fans wanted McGuiness to go away." Well, that would be 'some' fans. Again, what Achtung Guy said. There was only 1 thing I ever didn't like about Mr. McGuiness, which I won't bother to mention, but overall always loved him. "In what would be one of the most surprising shifts in years among the forces behind pop megastars, Mr. Oseary, 41, would take over the day-to-day management of U2." That's all we need - the same manager that manages Madonna?! I see her influence in Miley Cyrus, btw. Not good. Well, U2 is in control of U2. Artistically. And at least that's how we all want it.

    9606 Btw, my not counting a few pages ago wasn't a protest of any kind. Pain/Chris: thnx for letting me know I forgot.
  9. P.S. Just let me add: An essay for 'Rolling Stone' by Bono. Cool.
  10. Wow. I read that article just as much for Bono's writing & the incidental-to-Lou-Reed content & ideas as anything. Wow. Bono is as good of a writer of things like this as he can be with lyrics. (And more.) Which isn't new. In fact, he's sometimes phenomenal at it.

    Good morning Malahide, Chris, Zhivvy, & our darling Janette. Wishing everyone a good day today.
  12. Wondering if anyone here was able to go to this at the time.

    9288 So is this a Mexican-origin soap opera (novellas as they would call them) which is dubbed in Romanian?

    9287 No freakin' way, Chris. Hmmm. You sure you're not the writer who wrote that character & based her on me? I Have always been someone who wants to do what's right, I DO try to stay on the right path, etc. (Not saying I've never made a mistake.) The whole description would fit me! Glad to say that I'm no longer too naive for my own good - just like the character u described who has learned from experience.

    9279 Reeeally surprised me. Never thought about any part of the world being unfamiliar w/ tamales - but of course it's probably just because my country is attached to Mexico over here! Not sure if Janette meant the inside when she mentioned corn Meal wrapping, but the entire thing is wrapped in corn Husks. You peel back the husk to eat the tamale. Couldn't find a pic w/them covered in sauce, but I prefer them w/sauce - a particular kind of red sauce for them. Btw, pronounced "tah MAH lay" or "tuh MAH lay." (The Americanized Anglicanized way: "tuh MAH leez.") (Btw, the joke for a weather forecast is: "Chili today. Hot tamale.") 9284 Well let's outwhack the whacky system. How about if I quote my own post which quotes Zhivvy's & add a cut-&-paste quote from Chris (pain_18_) followed by my own comment? Chris said: "9280 This is a surprisingly intervention of Alma's, first because of the fact that she never comes in the counting thread, second because of the beautiful story and third because her name is a name often given by the Mexicans to their daughters (Alma, remember the soap-opera I was telling you about?) !!!" Actually, Chris, I do check out this thread once in a while - I don't know if I've ever commented in here though - maybe once or twice. Depends on who's here & what's going on. I like the present company here plus you're talking about cooking. But, yes - I remember the soap-opera u told me about. I told u that I hope the character Alma isn't a beeyotch & u said she's really nice & great or something like that. I was glad!

    9283 Well if all of this isn't just hilarious. Yes, the system is getting a little whacky here.

  19. "Every show ended with all of the evening's performers gathering onstage to sing Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released." At the final show, the Police handed their instruments to U2. "It's been called a symbolic passing of the keys to the musical kingdom," said Copeland. "But since we had been defunct for a number of years, I'm not sure we had any keys in our possession. We joked around that Andy [summers] should de-tune his guitar before handing it over to the Edge."" !!! !!! !!! So glad to learn this. "But since we had been defunct for a number of years, I'm not sure we had any keys in our possession." U2 has said that the fact The Police & another band were on a kind of hiatus at one point really helped out U2.
  20. Anyone who hasn't checked out the photo in the photo gallery that just looks something like a Joshua Tree record leaning up against something is also missing something special. Edible setlist, too. Nice.
  21. Has anyone ever told Oswaldo that the child in his avi is precious?
  22. Thanks Shannon. Yeah, I know. I'm just wondering how many posts I have to do to get to the next name. One of the other U2 sites has a name I love for people when they're new there: 'Stranger in a strange land.'
