  1. While many of us are not here as often as we once were and may disappear for long stretches of time, I don't think we could give it up entirely. Every now and then, I check in to see what's going on.
  2. Trying to find my way around here myself. It's a little confusing but I'm starting to find things. At least I got an avi up so that's progress, I guess.
  3. I don't find it alarming that they weren't involved. I thought briefly they might with Bono being a part time resident of NYC but, I don't have any ill feelings toward the band for not being involved. It isn't necessary for them to jump to the aid of every catastrophe in the world. I think the Jersey Shore had it's reps musically with Bruce and JBJ and quite honestly with a full line up like this: Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Eddie Vedder, Roger Waters, Kanye West, The Who and Paul McCartney. U2 wasn't really all that missed.

  5. Hey Spicy! I just happened by today! Thanks for thinking of me. Hope all is well with you.
  6. One more time for those who still seem to think the title of this movie is supposed to be a personal affront to Bono. The title came from a play on words from Bono himself. Taken directly from the book: "The problem with knowing you is that you've done everything I ever wanted to," Neil once complained to his famous friend. "I'm your doppelganger," Bono replied. "If you want your life back, you'll have to kill me." Now there was a thought... Get it? It's meant to be tongue in cheek... it's a joke. Sense of humor and all that. Neil McCormick and Bono are friends and he really doesn't want to kill Bono. *insert massive eye roll here* The original title of the book is; "Killing Bono: I was Bono's Doppleganger". And again, the book is outstanding. I recommend that each and every U2 fan read it, because you'll love it. I would like to see the film however, I'm sure it won't hold a candle to the book.
  7. [quote name='mich40 wrote: Kristaps']Didn't Bono fall off the stage while touring the US and broke his arm, thus the problem with the arm? You can find some of the earlier songs on the Boy Remaster on the 2nd disk. I think there were also some that came with "Rare and Remastered" subscribers CD. And a lot of earlier songs can be found on their live shows that are available online. (Note: I don't remember the songs that were played in the movie, the above is for early songs in general). Treasure / Whatever Happened to Pete the Chop Saturday Night Jesus Christ Things to Make and Do Speed of Life etc... I think they play Street Mission and maybe Cartoon World in the movie (both are real songs). Can't say for sure though b/c I haven't seen it yet. And yes, Bono fell in the States and I want to say cracked his elbow maybe. But wore his arm in a sling for a long time. It can be seen in Rattle and Hum during "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" I thought it was his shoulder that he hurt? I believe I read he tore all the muscles and tendons in the shoulder when he fell during the Washington DC show on the JT tour. He wore some strap and harness type contraption and the sling over it. There were quite a few shows on the JT tour where Bono had to wear that contraption. I have a couple DVDs from that tour where he is wearing it.
  8. You are kidding, right? The title is from the book and Bono himself had a hand in the play on words and it's flipping hysterical. Did you bother to read the book? The book is fantastic.
  9. [quote name='Zhivvy wrote: ceallach67 wrote: mich40']One word: Facebook. Where you can go and do what you want, say what you want and no one is going to stop you. I think I need a break from Facebook... I kept looking for the "like" button and nearly became frantic when I couldn't find it. Maybe Bono did have something to do with those FB changes we all hate - to get everyone back over here lol! Nah... Facebook is successful and as everyone knows, any business venture Bono gets involved with is anything but successful.
  10. [quote name='Redhead11 wrote: surrenders']I don't see any changes on my FB page. What changes supposedly happened. I don't use any apps or anything on FB cause the more allow stuff on FB the less privacy you have. there's like a scrolling thing to the right near the chat that says all the comments and stuff people are saying. Then they like divided the top news and the recent news in your newsfeed. Basically it made it easier to stalk people, LOLLOL!

  12. The only way I see that happening is if the music is written for other artists and not for U2. I can't see U2 putting out a new U2 album and not touring behind it.
  13. [quote name='basher1 wrote: ceallach67 wrote: basher1']mmmmmmmmm.....ever....dunno about that....lol however if it hadn't been for Sometimes i would probably never have got back into the whole u2 thing....(i know a LOT of folk are now cursing that song for getting me back into it) LOL! Bash... you kill me. 'Sometimes' is the one song that I often skip over. It is just entirely too painful and emotional for me as it reminds me too much of my own father. Not a bad emotion thing just too powerful to deal with at times. Atomic Bomb being the best work of U2 ever? It's all a matter of opinion and what grabs you personally, but I'd have to disagree. Good collection of songs, but best ever? I don't know. I'd probably have to give that nod to Achtung Baby if pressed to choose, however, I like the idea of thinking that U2 hasn't given us the best ever yet and there's still more brilliance to come. Kill you Kell????....NO.....Do other stuff well if yer lucks in maybe....lol...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Hahaha! I set myself up for that one.
  14. [quote name='basher1 wrote: mick james wrote: peterferris8'] If this was school, if you were my age at my school right now, you'd have expelled by now. My friends would be unimpressed by your types. Maybe, but you know Basher would pick up all the chicks and score the best weed Peter, mate, I really have to say you've put yourself in this argument. If you blocked Basher based on previous experiences, and then admit to looking at his post anyways because you can't help yourself, well then is it really Bashers fault that you're upset? Did you expect him to be giving a review of his trip to the Louvre? Mate put him back on block, and ignore his posts. if he's being a jerk you won't see. But if you're going to take sneaky peeks anyway, then you've only got yourself to blame, and it would indicate to me that you enjoy the conflict. And hey, that's not that uncommon in forums. But if it's not for you champ, then don't chime in. edit - I'm saying that respectfully Peter Exactly Mick couldn't have put it better meself..... and hell yeah the best chicks and the best Morrocan to smoke my man......you know it. That's why I hang with you.

  16. [quote name='mich40 wrote: MacFoley']i wonder what bob would have thought of the price of the uber deluxe set price. I would imagine the F-bomb flying in several directions. RIP Bob HA! Without a doubt! Bob Hewson... the only person who still called Bono by his given name... and was allowed to. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam (may he rest in peace)
  17. This question comes up after every tour. Well, every one since Elevation at least, anyhow. U2 will tour until the time comes when they decide that they will not. End of story. Speculating or rather, getting upset over the speculating is a waste of time and energy and clearly becomes an issue that cannot be discussed rationally or even just respectfully when it comes to this forum. Thus the reason I've stopped coming here to begin with. Anyway, I will say that I truly believe that U2 will give it up when it becomes a chore to them. I don't think money is the only motivating factor here. While they grossed a boatload of revenue on the 360 Tour they also paid out plenty to put that show on. I need to mention; they hired hundreds of local people in every U.S. city to help with the construction of the claw and for that, for hiring people in an economy with the highest ever rate of unemployment, I have to give my respect. That said, I believe they will stop when it is that they no longer feel the same about the music or the live touring. When the thrill is gone to put it in simple terms. When will that happen? Only U2 can answer that. We as fans, must just sit back and wait. U2 is at the top of their game in the live arena (always have been). I don't see them giving that up yet unless something tragic or unexpected forces that decision at this point.
  18. Bono himself has said as much about his "playing". What was the quote... let's see... I'm paraphrasing here... something like... 'I've played a lot of guitar. Badly'. That's what he's said, right? And going back to Edge who has stated that Bono's guitar playing is not needed and he could handle it all by himself. Both live or otherwise. If the question is does Bono look good with the guitar? He sure does. Does it matter if he plays? No, not really. But it does look good for appearances. Personally, I love it when Bono is animated and out there playing to the crowd and being the entertaining and talented frontman he is. That's where he is at his absolute best.
