  2. R.I.P. to my mom - 4 years ago she went to join all of her friends and relatives who went to heaven first. I know she is helping us from beyond to make sure we have a new president in January 2021. Thank you, mom, for everything you did for me and all of our family while you were here. R.I.P.

  3. I'll be doing the same. (It feels like we're all honoring the memory of Bob Hewson in a way by doing so too.)

  4. Ah, I agree! This is good news. I was going to write a grand review of all the DVDs they have ever released (since we have watched them all together in somewhat close proximity time-wise) and, as an extension, say which ones would benefit from an HD upgrade the most. Since I never got around to it, I’ll give you the briefest of summaries: the Boston Elevation show is the one that would benefit from an HD upgrade the most. (If this surprises you, it shouldn’t - Boston was the first live DVD they ever released and it hasn’t been revisited ever since (until 2020, that is, hopefully). Every o

  6. I got to be on local radio - for being a U2 fan Each day, the lunchtime host does a section on "Shropshire's Most Wanted" where he tries to find people who fit three categories or criteria. One of today's criteria was trying to find "Someone who has seen U2 live". I wasn't actually listening to the radio at the time, but I saw the post on their social media and rang up. I was put through and got to talk live on air about the 3 concerts I've been to - one of which, London 1 in 2015 involved me taking the radio station's knitted gnome mascot along with me - and he still has the badge.

  7. The first album and still one of the best!! Their first single and still one of their greatest songs “Out of Control”!!

  8. I think it still holds up as well as ever. I can honestly say that if I heard it on the radio today, I'd be trying to figure out who it is so I could hear more of whomever it was. I'm always happy to hear Out Of Control. It's even better live. I remember when I first heard I Will Follow; I was in the student union of my college. It came on MTV. I heard the guitar and was hooked. It's 40 years later and I still cannot get enough of U2.

  10. OK, technically this is yesterday's good thing. I got to go to what seems to be my only live show of 2020. Mythology, featuring my buddy Jordan on drums, played an outdoor set at a private residence in upstate rural New Jersey. It was beautiful and sunny, the leaves were just the right Autumn colouring. We sat under a pine tree and were able to relax because everyone was respecting the mask and distancing rules. The band describe themselves as prog rock but they incorporate elements of blues and jam band influences. It was great to be out and about catching up with friends.

  12. I was able to go to my favourite coffee shop for the first time since lockdown started. They take safety measures as much as possible with the food, wrapping up the giant cookies to minimise the amount of people who have to handle them directly between baking and being eaten by the customer. The staff are always really nice in there and they do gluten-free muffins that my Dad can eat too Then I bought 5 packs of F1 trading cards and pulled the gold Limited Edition card of my favourite driver

  14. Damn, You missed it then. It's a great song. That MDH album has 3 gems. Stateless, TGBHF, Never Let Me Go and Falling at your feet is a nice one too.

  17. @CorkVegan That is a brilliant thing, to get to see a live band in the current climate. I also like their sign. "Turn off your phones and dance". More people should follow that advice

  21. It started off as a bad thing, but I'm turning it into a good thing and doing my bit to fight fake news My sister (who is admittedly annoyingly gullible about these things) posted some nonsense on FB overnight, a copied and pasted rant about Covid rules and how it's all nonsense (to put it politely - the actual post used a ruder word). It has several false claims in it, dressed up as "YOLO good vibes" fluffiness and written by people who do not understand the fact that stopping transmission of the virus is the best way to get back to the normal life they're on about. So I've repor

  26. U2 Stamps To Become Collectors' Items A new set of four stamps has been unveiled by An Post. Celebrating the career of U2 – the band frequently dubbed the greatest rock band in the world – they combine distinctive shapes with iconic imagery. No wonder they are in high demand! There had been word on the grapevine. Fans getting excited. A sense of expectation mounting. A stamp was on the way. Or maybe it would be more than one. Then it was confirmed: there’d be four brand new designs, which is a kind of magic number in U2-ology. One for each member of the band?

  27. This is cool. Assume it will be in HD judging by the Boston YouTube videos. Will it be available for 48 hours like the other u2.com streams?
