    Yes - the Paris show confirmed yet again how flexible "The Fly" is, from all the different ways it has been played live over the years. I wouldn't want future versions of it in concert to be like the Paris version, but it was cool they did it that way once. (FWIW, the ZooTV, Elevation, and Vertigo tours had my favorite versions of "The Fly"...and the e&i tour, once they started playing it on that tour.) "Raised By Wolves" also was stellar from the songs on SOI as well, in addition to the two you named. EBTTRT was really cool - that song found new life from 360 onward.

    Well, I can only agree. I wasn’t “in charge” of this showing. There was a very strong desire expressed by several people when we were trying to line up a viewing last weekend for this weekend instead. Obviously, people changed their minds and/or forgot. Of course, this is no big deal. A viewing should only go forward if enough people can make it. So, let’s officially call today’s planned viewing off. So, shall we say tentatively that next Saturday at the customary time be the time for the JT 1987 Paris DVD showing? If this is good, will people please post here saying that this is good for them? If people just come by and read the thread without posting (or, at least, reacting to posts) here, it gives the impression of lack of interest. (P.S. I think that when @Madfl3a was running these viewings, there were also posts about the upcoming shows on Twitter and/or Facebook and/or Instagram. I am not on social media at all. So, if we are having a collective viewing, could somebody please make people aware of it in these digital spaces? Thank you!)

    Something awesome happened. Another Irish Terrier is coming into my life. Boy. His name is Flannagan. Breeder just wants a good home for him. Flan is fighting with the Aerdales this man also breeds. (Go Terriers) Looks like we're driviing to Ohio to fetch him. This is a minor miracle. Word was quietly given to me that there would be no Irish Terriers availbale for a year. They are on the endangered breeds list for the AKC. Nobody is breeding during the pandemic. I was going to have to crush the hopes of someone I love dearly. Now I do not. Two of them 😀 Riri (my girl) and now Flan for my ex, who has become one of my best of the best friends. He looked at me yesterday and asked, "How long am I going to have to wait?". My heart broke. I couldn't tell him that none were available. All I could say was, "I never lost hope. Don't you lose it.either." Five hours later, the lady who gave me Riri told me the news of Flan. Two Irish terriers, one male and one female, means they can run and play together. I cannot believe how fortunate and blessed I am. A huge thank you to our universe. Go Irish anything - especialliy terriers and U2. I know I'm gushing but I am so high I could fly right now. Never lose hope.

    ...and I was just given confirmation by email that my vote for this primary was received and tabulated today! Consider this a small blow against the tyranny expressed by those who would prevent us from being able to vote from home! 👍

    Thanks, dmway. I'd love to be a part of this. Too much going on today.

    This may be an issue that need to be considered - loose agreement may not be the best idea... If there will be plans for any follow up to the viewings, it may be better to let people be informed with proper anticipation...

    May I propose that it be postponed until a future date? It sounds like people have a lot going on today and if you are still waiting on Jets too, since he is on a completely different timing and there was not a reminder yesterday, he may not realize it was a set idea either. Most of us didn’t realize it was a set thing; and we will also need to rearrange our afternoon schedule if we do it today.

    I’ll try very hard!! to be viewing @4pm today- on whatever I can find on the internet. I’m not very tech savvy & might not be available for comments during, but will try. If it doesn’t work out as you planned, maybe try once again next weekend?

    Well, if more people don’t confirm that they are going to be here, you literally may not be missing anything. 😄 There were several people who lobbied for today to be the day to see this show who have been conspicuous in their silence recently. I hope some will speak up now; otherwise, I guess it will have to be next weekend. 🤷‍♂️ Anyone else participating today?

    I guess this thread should be bumped for today’s Paris 1987 JT tour show. I don’t have the skills for a clever graphic, but we are still shooting for: 10 pm Paris / 9 pm London / 4 pm NYC / 1 pm LA (w/ matching times worldwide) for starting, right?

    There is something romantic about pushing the keys and seeing the words form on paper when typing manually. I love it. My good thing: My 20th anniversary remastered The Johsua Tree box set arrived in the mail today. I'm excited to watch the DVD.

    I helped a nearby preschool by getting out of the car and giving them their ball which had rolled across the street.

    I finally got my order of two of my favorite Kraftwerk CDs: “Trans Europe Express” and “The Man-Machine”. These are the 2009 remasters which replace my copies from the 80s - purchased in memory of Florian Schneider.

    In my novel it is only 1990, so you could say I'm using the technology of the time Also, my computer has a nasty habit of freezing and crashing, so this will help until I can afford to replace it.

    Absolutely, there were no weak moments, okay The Fly should have been played by whole band and version must be raw. From SOI my personal live favourites are Miracle & Cedarwood Road, those really rock. EBTTRT the screen was amazing, it can be watched again and again.

    While we’re waiting for the DVD to be delivered eventually, the site has actually posted what the set will look like at the link above. (This original post got buried in a previously-active side conversation, so many people may have missed it. I repost for those who may be interested, but missed it the first time.)

    George Floyd, who died Monday after being pinned to the ground by an officer who pressed a knee into his neck. 46 years of age. How many more?

    I got my mail-in ballot for my state’s June 2nd primary election yesterday. (Yes, this primary is mostly symbolic now since Joe Biden effectively already has the Democratic nomination; however, there were down-ballot elections that are actually meaningful.) I’m just glad we have no-excuse mail-in voting now. This process was just signed into law late last year; talk about fortunate timing!
