    I was lucky to see them open wth Breathe for two 360 shows in Chicago.

    I was even luckier when they ended my third 360 show in Chicago with One Tree Hill.

    Remember that pick of what was then called the claw being built?  I think it was in Holland and there was a house in front of it?   The pic got posted in the Zoo and many of us went crazy with excitement.   How they gonna haul that thing aound?  Etc?    Good times. 

    I was just looking at my pictures from that show. It was hotter than hot and when they did One Tree Hill and Edge....that was priceless.

    Breathe is one of those forgotten gem! I absolutely love it and it's true that I have it on repeat lately... 

    As for starting with it, be aware that most people prob won't, and with the long intro you might get well behind 🙄. But eh, that's your show! Do as you please! 😁

    So, maybe a silly question, but when we do start it....where exactly are we starting from? The animated stuff or when it goes to the real footage?

    Yup, kinda agree with you Max. Music and movie are not experienced the same way (well at least imo).

    In other news, I've just shuffled through the 360 Ultraviolet vid and i'm getting a tad bit excited :Bananaphisto:

    I've been digging around the video and photos archives in the site this morning. That has gotten me pretty pumped too. Found the little video from the original release fan parties.

    Honestly and sincerely, in my view there are only two possible ways to make a movie work in a live stream party:

    - One would be if the director or one of the actors (or more of them, or a combo) is present and make comments about it during the movie - or tv show: a few days ago there was a live stream for the Twin Peaks pilot with Kyle Kyle MacLachlan and Mädchen Amick, quite entertaining and informative thanks to their comments); or

    - If the movie is so, so, so... so bad that the only possible way to endure it is to make jokes about it - basically Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    plus, while the Wenders movies are great but are on the slow lane - maybe they could be food for thought, but in the end it would feel like homework)

    (not to mention that for many, the U2 connection is so tenuous, and in the case of Wings of Desire, inexistent)

    Perhaps it's better if we concentrate on the official material that we have now - there's still plenty of it for the next weeks and if the circunstances make that we finished them the discussion can come once that stage is reached, not before...

    Totally agree. Plus, being a little off on the timing of a song in a concert and still being able to make a comment is doable. Dialogue in a movie or show, not so much....

    Also....I hate talking during movies....

    Yes, R&H I think we could definitely do. I hope we could do any of the others - we’ll need to create a poll to see if enough people have any of the others to make such an effort worthwhile. Good thing we still have a few of the mainstream shows to last us for a bit.

    The movies are a mixed bag to be sure - Mich’s comment below is good.

     

    Yes, once is about enough for The Million Dollar Hotel (which pains me to say - Wim Wenders directed it, it has plenty of stars, Bono had the original idea and was involved in the screenplay - it should have been a knockout; it’s just a bit less than that though).

    ”Wings” was mentioned as the setup to “Faraway” - if you plan on seeing the second, you really have to have seen the first.

     

    I do have the new directors cut of Until the End of the World that I still haven’t sit down to watch. It’s only roughly 5 hours long....
