  1. Grateful for the show dedicated to Van Morrison today. Liked Bono's poetic interpretations of the lyrics, and particularly thankful for Adam's bit. I guess 25 songs for those scratching past the surface (like Adam), knowing I could easily do three times that for Van's birthday 1) Streets of Arklow 2) Tir Na Nog 3) Summertime in England 4) Take Me Back 5) Burning Ground 6) Saint Dominic's Preview 7) Come Here My Love 8 ) Enlightenment 9) It's All in the Game/You Know What They're Writing About 10) Orangefield 11) Sweet Thing 12)
  2. U2 X-Radio - so glad Edge opened with David Byrne, who I think of as the third point in the three album trinity of BED - Bowie, Eno, and David Byrne. Was a big Talking Heads fan and have followed David since. And the connection has always been there from R&H trying to reach the heights of Stop Making Sense to, yes, on topic - 11 O'Clock Tick Tock as partly inspired by a show U2 opened for the Talking Heads.
  3. This one is fascinating. SOE is going to open up new possibilities for the old songs. Working on a set now.
  4. I'm glad the Bono attempted to make contact, though it's unfortunate the call was cancelled. I'm mostly aligned with the band view, but really want more info. The speech she made saying human rights would be respected did sound like her signalling her position, but that she was on a short leash. Much to pay attention to.

  5. I'm very concerned about this as a topic and how it's being handled by fans an media. Please correct me if I'm wrong (and I very well maybe), but wasn't this a crisis she originally sought advice from other international leaders on (and there appeared to be little). Again - if I dis-remember that correct me, I could easily be wrong. But, in any event, isn't this an issue of the military / generals again? You know - the people who imprisoned her? Her acting as a governmental leader maybe be on a figurehead basis while the military really is in control again. I'm not seeing report
  6. So, let's start in on the bad - the pre-show GA line controversy for the moment. The band wrote a song about it, you know the one with the line "just gimme what I want and no one gets hurt" (shouldn't say that as some will feel honored) - because that's what it comes down to, people proclaiming the given rules void and naming themselves proclaimers of new rules, in secret, and threatening violence or its approach if their rule isn't adhered to (before the bulk of the crowd shows up of course), and security and the venue both bow when it's clear the numbers are greater than they could prevent v
  7. I'll say some things later. Keep meaning to get back here, but not finding the time. I'll open with a pic of the Lumineers - found them pretty enjoyable, very glad to have seen them.
  8. Need to follow that up with his later comment on soundcheck Mr. Wave - may result in some speculation.
  9. Nice job - curated is so much better than twitter box ticking on songs & phrases, parroting bono, and attempts at notoriety (her vanity) mainly via crowdsourcing. Honestly bored with the bulk of twitter coverage. But that's just me.
  10. Yes, gone with a song - Kite was her favourite. Very important to her in explaining to her family her own feelings. pain - my condolences on your uncle, I'm sorry to hear that.
  11. pain, no worries - not meant to bring you down, and if you don't know her you don't need to react. Just trying to help her Mom out by letting people who did know her know what's up, if we missed them in other media (facebook, etc.). The upside is it shows you there is a loyalty and a support in the friendships of fandom.
  12. For those that know her, met her, enjoyed her love of life and of this band. Karen / Ruby / RubyEuropa (a nice bunch of gals) Entered hospice, and has not awakened. There will be no service. Spare a thought for her during a song.
