  2. I saw all Vertigo shows, save one, in Chicago. I had great seats for every one. I had second row when they played my city. Still, I mourn not seeing the Vertigo stadium tour that hit Europe. I'm in bliss watching these right now. Thanks for posting.

  3. I had a day out today to a nearby town that I hadn't been to for well over 2 years. It's only about 15 miles down the road, but the landscape makes it feel like you've driven much further, with the hills and rural scenery. I borrowed 2 books from their library, bought 4 more at a lovely independent bookshop, had lunch, explored the town some more - including 2 small art shops/galleries - then went back and bought 2 more books from the bookshop. I was also able to add 2 more dictionaries to my language collection, as I found Czech and Hungarian dictionaries in a charity shop. It feels good to be able to have days out like that again, - and to be able to support the local shops, cafes etc in those towns as they're getting back to normal.

  5. Thank you very much. I've not seen a Bond film with Daniel Craig. I want to see No Time To Die. I appreciate the heads up. My good thing: Coldplay is coming to Soldier Field in Chicago on May 28. I'm signed up for the verified fan thing on TM. I've also figured out a way to humbly ask the lady who comp'd me two tickets to the last Coldplay concert at Soldier Field (because it rained the previous Summer when Coldplay was at Soldier Field) for help. Man, I have balls when it comes to this stuff. Rock and roll, baby. The nervous 'I have got to get great seats for this show' rumination begins.' The first time I saw them was GA, Clocks had not been released, not many people were going to the shows and we were right in front. I'm spoiled. BONUS: Ticket prices seem to have come down by at least $50 for this tour versus the last. Yee Haw! My other good thing (equally unexpected) was running into this on YouTube: If you have not seen this, listen to what Sir Paul McCartney says at 1:50. It's quite funny and delicious. I am stoked about this. I did not know. 57 hours of footage? Peter Jackson does not take on small tasks. Wow. Very exciting. I guess I'm going to Disney.

  6. …and now I have seen “No Time To Die”, and I did indeed love it! 😎👍 My first film in a theater in almost 2 1/2 years! For those who only watch Bond films sporadically: if you plan on seeing this one, be sure to see “Spectre” first. You would miss a few things if you didn’t see “Spectre” first. I loved the little nods to the whole Bond franchise throughout the film as well - very nice touches!

  7. Here’s a little Mich factoid. October was actually the first album I owned on CD, even before I had my own CD player.

  9. Yes, if they are going to be doing anything for AB 30 (and they sure as hell should be), something needs to be said ASAP. Lots of good suggestions above on both pages. Throw us some kind of bone, please… 🙏

  13. I’d be prepared for something underwhelming. How nobody from the band or their management has managed to figure out that there are several amazing zoo tv shows that could be released to commemorate the album I’ll never know. We’re not talking crazy obscure shows there’s shows like Stockholm 92 which there has to be footage of they could upscale and release. There’s Dublin 93 which was broadcast on the radio. There’s all the bits from Yankee stadium that were recorded/filmed. We’re not talking about average performances either, these are all great shows and feature different Setlists to the Sydney show which was more Zooropa heavy. I can sort of understand the band not wanting to release just everything and anything when it comes to live stuff but I’ll never understand them releasing so few great shows that we know exist.

  14. Paddy Maloney has left so much music behind for future generations to enjoy. Perhaps his greatest quality was his lack of snobbery. He worked with anyone from pure trad artists to pop stars. The Stones even appeared on an album by The Chieftains. Sinead O'Connor's version of "The Foggy Dew" stops me in my tracks every time. Good luck and goodbye Paddy, I'll see you further on up the road.

  18. I went to the library to look for a particular book - and came home with 5 books, including the one I'd been looking for The poetry one was part of their book sale, so I get to keep that one. My dad and I also had lunch in a lovely little cafe where we're almost becoming regulars. The really good part was that it's the sociable sort of cafe where you get talking to the staff and other people who come in, even though we'd never met the other customers before. It's been noticeable to me that people seem more friendly and happy to talk since lockdown ended. I think the experience of *not* being able to socialise for months has maybe made people more willing/keen to talk and have a laugh with each other. Certainly, it's been noticeable at the cafes we go to most frequently, that there are friendly atmospheres and you can get into a conversation with people even if you don't know them. And sometimes you end up helping someone. Today, we helped a lady who's new to the area by telling her about the short-cut to the car park, so that she could go and pay for more parking before her ticket ran out. She wasn't intending to stay so long at the cafe, but she was enjoying the chat so much that she decided to stay and have cake

  19. Thank goodness it looks like the numbers are continuing to decline. Models show that happening through January. Let's hope it does. Dawes got cancelled for September 25. I raised a stink with the fan club because it was only announced on Istagram. I'm not sure how much more the band could do. Fans got upset with me, saying it was all about me. I responded saying it was all about the fact that Live Nation failed to pull the sale of the three shows they were handling, one of which was Harrisburg-that night's show. Someone must've seen that because within ten minutes, the sales got pulled. I got thanked. All good but my gosh did some fans irritate me. The show was rescheduled for November 5. They are playing Harrisburg on November 4. It's one of the two last An Evening With Dawes shows. I highly suggest going. It's $45. They are playing Knoxville, TN and it's ten bucks for GA. These guys jam. Looks like I should have four shows in by December 5. Thank goodness all those venues demand vaccinations/face masks/recent neg tests. The other show I'm hoping to see (and get comp'd) is Hamilton. A best friend is completely in charge of ticketing for our run. He's a nervous wreck. It looks like the pandemic will allow me to get one or two comps, with the worse case scenario being I'll get tickets for $69. I badly want to see Hamilton.

  20. Whoops! Forgot to update this for a good while, time flies when you're working hard! Elbow were stellar as always, posted some videos & photos on my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CT-yvDUD7_Q/ Saw another incredible gig on Friday night - Nothing But Thieves headlining the O2 arena, first London gig I've attended in 20 months (the last one was Editors at Wembley Arena in February last year). Last time I was at the O2 was 2 years ago to see Muse - supported, funnily enough, by Nothing But Thieves. On Friday it was their show and they owned it - you could that it meant a lot to them given this was their biggest show after working so hard for so many years meant a lot to them. Again, some photos & videos on my Insta, including the support band, Yonaka (who, it turns out, went to the same uni as me!): https://www.instagram.com/p/CUyjGuBIcar/

  22. Pada, They made up lies about me. I had to retain a lawyer. Like I said when I exposed them and the ruling went in my favour, the govt, changed judges and secretly placed one of their health lawyers who was corrupt and he was a nightmare and it was awful. He ruled in their favour and said awful things about the previous judge. The full bench also had people on it that had done deals too. I don't think they thought I would stand up to them, but I was in the right, and I really felt like I had no choice. Like I said, because they cheated they had a Lance Armstrong win. There is a full transcript of all that transpired. I don't have their wealth and power, but I have integrity and honesty and I can stand up to these corrupt people and look them in the eye. The health minister attends the largest Christian church in the State and when he came to power, suicide rates in the state spiked, it was a dark time. I contacted him as a Christian and told him the manager had sworn on the Bible and lied, and the first judge had found his evidence to be unreliable but he supported the man that did this. So there it is. I am fine now, because at the end of the day I did nothing wrong, I tried to advocate for the patients which is part of the code of conduct and ethics. These people don't care about those things. Just the money. I don't speak that language. I believe you can be successful in life, but not at the expense of peoples lives or causing harm.

  23. That is shocking that they tried to punish you for doing the right thing and standing up for the patients' well-being And that some of the people dishing out the mistreatment were effectively rewarded for it. I hope action was taken against that place. I'd hate to think the abuse was still going on. My good thing for today is that I received my second parcel of Star Wars cards in two days. Today's parcel included a costume swatch relic related to my favourite character

  26. I work in a COVID clinic at the moment. It is a long busy day. It's hard work. I went out in the afternoon to grab a coffee, when I went outside, there was a lady walking past with the tiniest puppy on a lead. His name was Mitchell and he was the cutest most gorgeous puppy. I have some video of it, but when I tried to upload it, it said the file was too big, it's only 18 seconds but it still said the file was too big. I said to the lady with her puppy, your puppy is cuter than a baby. It was the highlight of my day.

  38. Ever since I saw this photo of Dallas Schoo wearing a special commemorative Music Rising t-shirt, I sought one out for myself. It had been years and years until one appeared on EBay, and of course, I couldn’t let it go. I am beyond thrilled that it arrived today, the 15th anniversary of the Dome’s reopening, the same event the t-shirt commemorates. What timing! ♥️ #U2T0925 #superdome #musicrising #dallasschoo #love Dallas Schoo 📷 credit: Matthias Muehlbrandt

  39. Saw Royal Blood at the Brighton Centre two nights ago, a homecoming show for them! Absolutely stonking performance, loved hearing the new songs live for the first time. Seeing them again in London at the O2 in March. Seeing Elbow at the very same venue tomorrow night. Looking forward to it, been a long time since I last saw them.

  40. …and this show is still going on as scheduled, and it is tonight! 😎 They are even giving away tickets for first responders, etc. in honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. (My goodness…how did that happen that long ago?) So, a somewhat patriotic U2 fix tonight! 🇺🇸
