  1. Can you believe that September 25th marks 44 years of U2? Looking around the socials, there are several things going on to celebrate this occasion. Right here in the Zoo, we have a couple of things going on. Tomorrow, (Friday, 25 September), we have the 4th annual (if my calculations are correct) U2 T-shirt Day: https://zootopia.u2.com/forums/topic/41325-u2-t-shirt-day-25-september-2020/?tab=comments#comment-1198471 On Saturday, we also have a listening party for The Unforgettable Fire, here: https://zootopia.u2.com/forums/topic/41346-u2getherathome-a-celebration-of-th

  8. 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.)

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  15. As it should be… All the thanks to Jo and Ty for this nice listening party at distance... We all may be far away in distance, but things like this make us close as a community. Let's see what the future brings us... meanwhile, take care and be safe, girls and boys...

  17. I - after many, many months - finally finished 1st in the Diamond League (i.e., the highest of their 10 leagues) for the week on Duolingo! 😊 The highest I was ever able to finish was third (once in the Diamond League, once in a lower league that I can't remember). I even did it as a free member too; so, I beat out all the other free and paid members this past week as well. 😎 I have to give a lot of credit to Duolingo - they make learning a new language very entertaining. (I do recommend the app to others wanting to learn a new language.)

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  21. 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

  27. 😀😀😀 He is so screwed. I've been waiting for something like this to drop. I've been praying it did before the election. Look past everything and into his eyes. The dude is miserable. (no news, just saying) He bluffed when he ran. He never thought he'd win the election. He knew he was in trouble, due to his past, the moment he did. He ran to create press so he could find more money. I'm still wondering if he is even going to make it to the election. It would not surprise me if he takes the easy way out, takes his ball and goes home. I will struggle, for the rest of m

  28. I will be doing the same once mine arrives. My good thing was reading this headline below. Joe Biden should say at some point during tonight’s debate, “President Trump, you paid more hush-money to women you (allegedly) had affairs with than you paid in Federal Income Tax for the past 15 years.” That would make my day. 😊

  41. Calling all Zootopians to flood social medias with their favorite performance of the band! Because we def need more live music lately (!!!) , and we can never get enough U2 right?! Drown the silence, and do it with good music! Post your links/vids using the #U244Live hashtag! (mods ?! Mods! Can we do it here too or are you not too keen of spamming? ... I mean unending demonstration of love for the band?!) TOO MUCH ISN'T ENOUGH

  42. The Unforgettable Fire is one of my favourite albums, would love to be there on Saturday but at the moment I am not sure that I can. It is great that the band are upgrading their videos and putting them on YouTube, hopefully this paves the way for some physical releases of upgraded concert videos in the future as well. If I can't make it, have fun on Saturday.

  43. Thank you! The funny thing is that, linguistically speaking, you know the two languages that are closest to Portuguese. Thus, you would have very little problem with the vocabulary once you understood the spelling differences between them. (The grammar could be a different matter.) Duolingo is wonderful! This isn't a random opinion - I taught foreign languages (i.e., Ancient Greek and Latin) for over 20 years. With that experience, I can confirm that their method of teaching is pedagogically sound...and fun! If you like apps that are more conversationally-oriented, you may want to ch

  44. You are studying Portuguese? That's impressive. I know Spanish and Italian. Portuguese is a whole other ball game. I don't even try to understand when I hear it spoken. I just listen to the flow. It's beautiful. I am going to check out Duolingo. Congrats, dmway.

  45. When you think about it, you get better bang for your buck from the subscription gifts, such as; U22, Another Time, Another Place live at the Marquee, The Joshua Tree Singles Remastered & Live, U2 LIVE SONGS OF iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE and U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE LIVE FROM BERLIN. Most of this was previously unreleased or parts of it were. Where as the ATYCLB boxset is just old released stuff remastered.
