  1. I have compatibility of 33 percent, with a fair amount of agreement with his 80's through 2000's choices. I've discovered a few songs on this that I didn't know before but find myself enjoying. Who knows, the compatibility score could rise in a year:)
  2. Psalm 72:11-12. May all the kings fall down before him, all nations give him service. For he delivers the needy when they call, the poor a hose who have no helper
  3. U2 and my faith journey-remembering a fateful night twenty-two years ago- I’ve been a fan for twenty-two and a half years. When I was getting ready to graduate high school, my father gave me tickets to see Popmart, and a fan was born. Soon after, I located a used copy of War and spent graduation gift money on their newest album, Pop. That summer, in between working as my aunt’s live-in babysitter, I did little else but ride my bicycle and listen to those albums on my Discman, crying out to a God I wasn’t sure I even believed in anymore. Of course, that summer soon morphed into my fi
  4. My pick me up bands- Older but Goodies- Tears For Fears, REM, Peter Gabriel/ 90's and beyond- Sixpence None the Richer, Jars of Clay, Switchfoot, Anberlin, Thrice, Coldplay, Mumford and Sons
  5. I love the album, but then again, I am a fan of the sounds they are producing currently. To be honest, although I love several songs on JT, I've never been a fan of the production, so I am kind of glad they didn't make something too stripped down. Also, I love how big and full it sounds, and how uncool it is. It is hard to find bands with musical heft that extol the unabashedly positive messages that this album does, so I'm happy U2 is doing it.
  6. I've been around since then:) My JT memory is primarily me with a shoe microphone belting out "With or Without You" when I was 10 years old:) My sister and I saved our allowance and bought our mom JT for her birthday. Of course, I played it myself and sang along a bit after we gave it to her:). Although I didn't really become a real fan until I discovered Pop at the age of 18, I have quite a few memories of u2 as a youngster.
  7. Very well written and I can relate to this well. My father (who died when I was 29 and he was 54) was a u2 fan as well and I spent my last moments with him listening to U2 songs. It was how I said goodbye. He died in September of 2008. A few months after he died, I sent in a story about how I said goodbye to him into a u2 ticket contest and won a ticket to see them during night 1 of Boston. My best friend from childhood, who is also a u2 fan, lost her father just a few months before the concert, and she went to the concert with me. We saw them again together in Boston in 2015, and both of us c
  8. What is your asking price for the ticket? Was it originally a 280 dollar ticket or one of the cheaper lower level seats? If it is under 200 dollars, I'm interested.
  9. Switchfoot- Fading West, Arcade Fire-Neon Bible, Anberlin-Lowborn, Jars of Clay- Inland
  10. She. Vessels pound through her sapphire skin Stroking a nerve Her muscles strain Hoping. They run through her tangled tendrils Grabbing a strand Her eyes scan Searching. They trace the curve of her silvery waist Cupping a wave Her lips expand Swallowing.
  11. I am very sorry to hear your news. My family still lives in Oklahoma City and I have several friends that live in Moore. Thankfully, no one I am close to was hurt, but several came close. I send prayers to you and anyone else who lost a loved one in the tragedies.
  12. Bono and Edge committed their time and effort to Spiderman and I am glad that they have stuck to it. I like the song quite a bit, lyrically it expresses a sentiment that I connect to at this current time, and I wish Bono, Edge and the rest of the Spiderman crew the best of luck. They took a huge risk with this play and I am in their corner....
  13. Terrified. We are still waiting to see if my husband's contract will be renewed and I have started applying for English teaching positions. One mere glance at an application or a letter of reference request sends my pulse up toward 130 beats a minute.
