  1. Not and never to be as old as Zhivvy
  2. Is that because you are really old now? Fooker
  3. I'm liking the fact that this one is a lot easier on my eyes.
  4. Well if that's how it is, then fine by me! POP & NLOTH are 2 of my favourite U2 albums. I make no excuses for loving either & with POP I never will. I remember rushing down to Tesco's to buy it on it's day of release, getting it home and playing it all day loud. All I could think of was how it captured the feel of the time but also felt wise beyond it's world. It's a U2 album that stays fresh year after year. NLOTH is just a fantastic listening album & live the tracks were amazing. Remember all the slagging off Boots got? It was a bloody storming track live. It's such a shame tracks from these albums are getting side lined, but when you look at what was voted for on U22 you can really see the thinking of the band playing some of these tracks live to a non die hard audience. They should do a one off show for fan club members where we pick the tracks and they have to work the flow out. Now that would be a recording worth buying!!!
  5. God Part II, now yer talking!!!!!!!!!
  6. [quote name='basher1 wrote: gary-paul'] Sentence passed down today on Hawkins. . She got 7 years. Not taking away from what she done but rapist child abusers etc get less jail time just shows ye money's more important than peope I watched a documentary on C&I last night about serial bigamist, conman & rapist Will Jordan. He only got 5 years. UK law seen a bit hit & miss. In some cases I guess it's all down to how high profile it is.
  7. I survied Zhivvy's big bithday weekend and caught up with some great Zootop's old & new !!!!
  8. So kicking and screaming I brought them both in to the present.
  9. I picked these very nice prints off eBay for £30 inclusive of postage as a project to bring them into the modern world. Frames were the old 80's brown and gold yack!!!
  10. This is what happens when you get invited to Zhivvy's house. Be warned!!!!!
  11. And this says it all for me: And on May 30th, everyone who's resubscribed for 2012 will be able to download EIGHT more tracks. Now I can hopefully get the tracks that should have made the bloody CD in the 1st place. Best bit of news on U2.com for a long, long while.

    AB lith?!

    And I didn't say no & it's now shipped, cheers Alec
  13. Watching From The Sky Down yet again today and the thumbs down they give it, I can help but wonder how much extra footage they have and what a difference it would make for a new version. The songs really carry the movie, but on the whole some of the Dylan tracks are a bit of a bore TBH. What do people like and dislike about Rattle & Hum? Audio & Visual side? Audio wise I love GOD Part II, Moonhawk 269, Angle of Harlem & All I Want Is You, the first and second mentioned have become 2 of my favourite U2 tracks. Video wise I think Streets is amazingly shot, also I really like the performance of Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bad. On the whole the movies got 60% of the good stuff and 40% bog roll, be nice to see a recut with all the extra stuff they have.
  14. Best Baby tattoo ever, hands down, no contest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  15. [quote name='MacFoley wrote: agt wrote: MacFoley']....oh, 90's boy eh! Defo! I emptied my iPod a few weeks ago and only put U2's 12 studio albums back on it. And since then on my way to work all I've listen to is U2. I find myself listening to those 3 more than any others. It's given me a chance to get back to U2 basics and see where the magic really is. Another I've done a lot of listening to is No Line On The Horizon which is just getting better and better for me. Listening to The Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum and even though there is a lot of great classic tracks on both, they feel a million miles away from U2! Now when I listen to the tracks in Live recordings, it's kinder like the songs transend the style of those 2 albums, which is a reverlation to me as The Joshua Tree was my turning point in my U2 path. Maybe I feel the fun they were having in the 90's makes them the U2 I love, who know's " alt=""> Oh aye! The 90's for me and U2 really was when i went into real overdose of U2. From Achtung to Pop and both the tours it just seemed to me that U2 fitted into the era just fine, even if they didn't think POP filled the void their die hard fans were moaning at. Because i discovered dance culture too, clubs and substances, U2 joining forces with DJ's and having their material remixed really was like another side to U2 which i had not seen in the 80's. All i saw in the 80's was a bunch of hairdoo's, cowboys and indians singing stadium rock. Although i learnt to love the U2 from the 80's, i still think from 1983 Red Rocks up to Popmart 1998, was their growth, to their peek in both songwriting and touring life. But the 90's is my favorite U2 era. They looked great too. Not too young, nor too old to be a really fucking cool and good band. And Bono was more cooler too and not too much playing Jesus by saving the world most of the time. Aye, there Image in the 90's was awesome and far removed from the dusty wild west look. Also know what you mean about the early period, I love the kill the punk feel. On revisiting October there's actually a lot more there than people choose to here. My least listen to albums are what some people consider to be there best, The Joshua Tree, All That You Can't Leave Behind and How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. Even though these albums do have some amazing track I'm just not pulled in by them as I'am with the 90's stuff. The Achtung Baby tracks and Stay at Glastonbury just blew my head off!!!
  16. [quote name='MacFoley wrote: agt']Achtung. Infact Achtung, Zoorop & POP are my 3 favourite U2 albums. And as far as I'm concerned these define the U2 we know and love. As great as The Joshua Tree is, it's look and feel is of U2 old. Achtung Baby is like it could have been released today. ....oh, 90's boy eh! Defo!

  17. PS: We only have fitted blinds. Curtains are for old farts!!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. Hey Babs, we're starting again very soon & yes it's a ball ache " alt="">
  19. Achtung. Infact Achtung, Zoorop & POP are my 3 favourite U2 albums. And as far as I'm concerned these define the U2 we know and love. As great as The Joshua Tree is, it's look and feel is of U2 old. Achtung Baby is like it could have been released today.
  20. Corlaine in utterly brilliant and my 3 kids adore it. It's very well written, animated, voiced and directed.
  21. POP is a masterpiece! Most people just don't see how amazing it is. They just prefer a safe lot of U2 tracks.
  22. As Mac has said the songs live were awesome. And if the album had not been over produced it would have been a bigger seller. Saying that it's still there best album for quite sometime. Maybe the need to create hits these days has shook there faith a bit, allowing them to let some people have a bit more involvement than they sould. I would love them to do a stripped down version of the whole album at one point down the line, give it the proper U2 sound we all know and love.
