That's the dream T!

 

I've played a few gigs recently of my own electronic music, but to be able to remix a big act would be amazing!

Stop...what??? U have done a few of your own gigs??? First Japan, but u got the mojo going on in other places too?  (and Marianne just said u are cool!!)

Heya T, I'm just running out the door, but yeah I've done some solo gigs!

Mostly weird electronic noise at some Art exhibitions but pretty good fun!

 

Here's an old invite thingy

Mick, will check out the links u posted here in a wee bit and comment...

 

I have to share this with you tho...yesterday I mentioned about me posting a couple of your remixes on my profile page in facebook...anyway...getting some very nice comments...I am cutting and pasting North "Bowman's" response for you and this one is regarding the MOS remix....

 

Quoting Bowman...

 

"I would trade my Artificial Horizon CD for that song in a second.

That happens if U2 think they know so called creatives and let them remix their stuff so we end up with "things" like Happiness Is A Warm Gun Remix.

Well....before trading I would rip the Crazy mix and the GOYB Justice mix (the Angels mix I already have on CD).

Now there is an idea....for next subs gift do a competition.

Fans do remixes of their songs....old or new.....fans vote and choose the best 12.... See More

These remixes would actually be new and not to get elsewhere on CD......I think this would be something unique and worth a resub.

But you know what.....ain't gonna happen." (end quote)

 

How was Simple Minds??????  Did Ellie go too?  Hope u had a blast :-)

Heya T! That's really cool. And remind Bowman (he probably can't remember) that I waved at you and him in NYC - I think his quote on the first night was " we'll get Until The End Of The World tomorrow!!"

 

He was right!! - send my regards!

 

Tracy my girl, please excuse my rants in here tonight if you read them.

This place is a bit upside down at the moment, and I'm an opinionated dude! Don't think any less of me!?!?

That being said, I mean it all. There's too much blind worship going on in here.  If the site is faulty it's not a reflection on Bono himself, but it's just the truth. That's why so many great peeps have gone from here.

 

But it's great to see you back!

 

 

As for North's idea - I'd be so into that, and I'm confident enough as a huge fan that I could do something pretty special for such a compilation!

 

To this day, I'm the only person in the world to remix Moment Of Surrender, and I'm proud of the fact!laugh.gif

Oh and Simple Minds were a blast. I saw soundcheck, said hello breifly to the band and stood side of stage for the whole show!

 

Ellie didn't go, as it was work and she's happy at this point to have a bath and go to bed! lol

 

I got a copy of the setlist which is pretty sweet.

 

*

1. Theme for Great Cities

2. Sanctify Yourself

3. Stars Will Lead The Way

4. Waterfront

5. Big Sleep

6. Hypnotised

7. Life in a Day

8. All The Things She Said

9. See The Lights

10. Moscow Underground

11. Real Life

12. Sons And Fascination

13. The American

14. In Trance as Mission

15. Someone Somewhere in Summertime

16. Somebody Up There

17. Once Upon a Time

18. One Step Closer

19. Don't You (Forget About Me)

20. Promised You A Miracle

21. Glittering Prize

22. New Gold Dream

23. Encore:

23. Neon Lights (Kraftwerk cover)

24. Rockets

25. Alive and Kicking

26. Encore 2:

26. Let There Be Love

27. Chelsea Girl

28. Ghostdancing

 

 

I didn't know a lot of the songs, I'll admit, but I was amused that they did a cover of Neon Lights which was almost identical to U2s cover of Neon Lights.

 

Anyway, they've definately still got "it". Great singing and playing, and the Sydney fans loved it!

 

Managed to have quite a few pints at the after show, and even scored a free cab home!

Good night in all :) :)

Mick, you opinionated???  Nothing wrong with that dear....

 

I talked to Bowman last night...I called him (I can call internationally from my cell phone for free to other landlines...not cell phones tho)....He is used to me calling now in the middle of the night (his time - lol, but he is a night owl).  Anyway, I was so excited to call and tell him that my hubby is going to let me go to Salt Lake to see U2....he first said "no" but now has agreed....so, it will be me, Bowman, and Jami Sharp...but my hubby is letting me go on one condition....both have to do Temple Square with me...Bowman said he would cuz it is part of Salt Lake's history of course...but he said he won't convert - LOL.  But it will be kinda fun showing off some of my church history :-).

 

Mick, I must go and read some of your posts tho...looking forward to it actually.....you have heard some of my rants and u still luv me too...so no worries....u were my first zootop friend...u can do no wrong (looks like I have drank the Mick "kool-aid" ;-)....

 

How was the show dear????  Did your beautiful lady go with you too?

Tracy, I'm a bit pickled, so in the interest of our friendship, please ignore my rants!!!!

 

Please?????

 

 

Ah you'll forgive me. I know it!

I may have gone over board, but hey, I just sank about 6 pints at the Simple Minds party and I'm full of fight!

 

 

*Just wiki-ing Temple Square so I can know where you mean........*

Of course Bowman remembers you.....y'all would really hit it off....he too I think has done a bit of remixing as well.

 

But, you, my buddy, are the King of Remixes...I have never heard any better work than your's. If U2 would take a peek every now and then in here to see what the fans are doing...they would notice your work...or better yet, if this site did a better job, they would pass your work on to the powers that be...really.

 

Okay, Simple Minds...cool u got the set list :-)....and I would go just to hear them sing "Don't You Forget About Me"...Brilliant song...and I only recognized one other song on the set list....but interesting about Neon Lights...

 

I checked out one of the invitations...need to look at the other one.....I saw your name!! Made me proud :-)

WOW!!!!!

 

That's an impressive church T!

 

We don't have a very big Morman population in Oz.  Was it founded in the US?

It's mostly Catholic, Protestant etc here.

 

We also have a big Muslim population which is probably quite differant than the US.

But for the most part Australia is actually very secular. A lot of people would say they're "something" but not actually attend the respective church.

 

America seems to be very passionate about religion.

 

My Mum was of Irish descent (her Dad was from Corke), so we very much so, had a Catholic upbringing.

I'd never tell my Mum, but I'm more into the idea that Baptists, Catholics, Mormans, and then Muslims etc etc are all really striving for the same purpose. Live a good honest life and be good to each other yeah?

 

(((((Tracy))))))
