  2. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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...

  20. R.I.P, atu2.com This was one of the best (and, in many U2 fans’ opinions, the best) fan-run U2 site. Back in the early days of the Internet, this was one of a handful of “go-to” sites for band info. A sad day... https://www.atu2.com/news/goodbye.html

  23. @illumination70 *hugs* Condolences on your loss. 18 is a very good age for a cat. Clearly you gave her a lovely happy life. I've just had an email from a presenter on my local BBC radio station - he's organising a radio programme dedicated to the issue of fake news/debunking virus conspiracy theories, educating people on the dangers of them etc - and has asked me to take part. Hopefully, this will help stop people falling down the same rabbit-hole that my sister's got herself into. It also shows why I really appreciate the local BBC stations. I can't imagine the commercial st

  24. 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.

  27. 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

  32. 😀😀😀 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

  33. 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. 😊

  43. Filled out my ballot for the November election which seems odd to write. I got it witnessed and signed. It is selaed. It just needs to be delivered, which I'm doing in person to a dropbox asap. He is fired by me.
