  1. Eh, didn't lost it that much but, Jesus, I really had it. Unbelievable, and people actually still ask when will things be "normal". Try being a legal expert, lawyer here... laws exist only because everybody else have them, and are being used only when it's convenient. I really found what will I do in my life...
  2. Well, its because its not easy to catch on...A little to heavy for general public. The fact is that NLOTH is brilliant. Most of the people I heard (and I red similar posts here on this forum) didn't like it at first, now they all say its great. When I first heard it, I also didn't like it. It was like I bought a wrong album. It has to be played few times to get connected. Can you imagine a non-fan to buy an album that has to be "studied" before and then decided: I like it, like it not? I can't. ) Today is all in boobs, legs, cloths, and songs with "f***, "s***, left me, cheat me, kill me" words in. To listen that, you really don't have to have brains, so people usually leave it at home.
  3. There is no end for rock, it's eternal, and U2 will live forever. No need for panic. Guys told what they told...But, I must react on one statement. Helooo, people still buy albums and listen to music for the puuuuuuuuuure pleasure of music itself. Ok Mr. Adam? You are obviously closed in your world too long and got disconnected from reality. The only one standing on the ground is Larry. Hello, U2, just continue to "make relevant, great, music", don't philosophise too much.
  4. No UK next year...hi,hi,hi. You are selfish man. Didn't you had enough? You are not alone on this planet.
  5. Nothing. I just posted on another topic, and when I did that I thought: "That's it, its official. You are fanatic." LOL How could I dislike anything about them?
  6. ) Eh, that would be worth seeing. I guess they would manage just fine. But the best one, I think-The Edge. He looks like a big teady bear for kids. Dear.
  7. 15. 7. 1986. I was ten. It was the saddest day of my life. I was visiting my aunt...There I was, kid fooling around, but it all ended in sec. That was the day my father died. When I got home I found a full house, familly, friends, like 100 voices...I couldn't stand that crowd so I sneaked to my room, turned on a radio that I used to listen with my father (even today when I have a hard time I listen to music-it became my ritual) and there it was-Pride...it was like somebody turned off a switch, I didn't heard anything else, didn't think at all, it was like I was not there...It was just that song and me. After that I was humming all day that melody. I just liked it the moment I heard it. Later it just went on, and here I am today, posting here. At first they were my way of escape, later my way of expression.
  8. NO, big letters. LOL, come on! His voice is just great. The Edge is not Bono's backup vocal, they do it in some songs for a song, not because Bono can't do it alone. ) Really, some people will think of anything.
  9. No line..., Magnificent, Breathe, oh, and Unknown Caller
  10. My favorite radio - currently playing: Iggy Pop-The Passenger
  11. Mmmm, very hard. I guess that they get tons of such requests, but don't give up. Good luck!
  12. As we would say, it's 5 to 12. Time to do something, not just talk. Yeah, there is nothing worst than philosophy. Talk, talk, talk...I see that every day. It's easy to be smart and competent that way. But...hey, when its time to move, nobody's around. I don't know about you, but I am always left alone to deal with stuff, and I am always the one who will stand up and react on bad things. Still, nobody eliminates me 'cos of it. LOL, I guess, its because they think I am protected. Cowards. Anyway, people ARE selfish-most of them.
  13. Facebook...nah...its not a reall thing. Nothing is better then to really meet a person. Facebook, Twitter...they make people to "disconnect" from asociety, reall life. To be alone in a room on the net...That's boring, I can't imagine myself using it. It takes time and I don't really have it tospend it on this kind of things. And also...Hello! So many of my co-workers and bosses are using Facebook that I guess they would like to be my"friends" online too (nice way to see who I talk to, what I do and etc.). Eh, its a little paranoid but I am in that line of a business where everything counts - too much politics. I guess if I rejected some of themonline which I would because I don't mix business and private, it would be a big minus for me. Not that I would care that much but anyway, why would I leteverybody to put their noses in my private stuff. I post here, on some local forums when there is something big going on or some professional forums from timeto time and that's it. Just enough to make it fun, not an obsession. Technology is a great thing, but it makes people to alienate. The line is so thin.

Nothing special, usual human hypocrasy and trolling... and the fact this is the free side and should not be taken all that seriously...some people are going to post anything and everything especially if it a free forum. There are very few folks on this side of the board who are actually taking it for a "test drive" before deciding to subscribe. All the rest are just shite imo... I hope you don't think you will be taken seriously.
  15. Oh, finally some action here...I already started thinking that this site is so weird, and this forum so boring - no real discussion, interaction...It'slike this: you post something and no reactions...Everybody are writing something just to write it. If they know somebody they will communicate with thatperson, rate their blogs, and others are usually ignored. I noticed on some other sites that that's why people don't like this place...second reason isthe design, but...you can't have everything. Anyway, this kind of discussions about U2 are just hilarious. Its very simple. U2 is first of all a rock band, then everything else. So if a rockband is on a tour, they usually try to make a big show. Some bands make good shows, and U2 makes shows of all shows. They always did. If I had chance toask them what they think about themselves I am sure they would say exactly that: "We are a rock band. That's first." Of course, they are a little different - for rockers very normal, families,kids, normal lives - it's not only sex, drugs and rock n' roll. AND, above that they are aware of their influence and they use it to do some good, andhelp where they can. It's why people attack them...If they were like others, nobody would touch them. Sad. It is just showing us in what kind of a world welive and that's why now we are reading about how much they spend on their tour, stage etc...how laaameeee
  16. Listen, we need here people that don't like U2 as fishneeds a bike. U2 was never afraid of ambition and that's why this band is so special. It offered more then just life and music. That's something some peopleunderstand, and some don't. I guess you, and others like you, belong to the group that will never understand and its fine with me. So, do us a favor, walkaway and hate yourself and the rest of the world somewhere else.
  17. Kristaps wrote: I think 80.000 is a small sum to pay considering that all three shows earned for U2 about 25 millions. I say - Pay the fine and play there again, even if they have to pay another 80 grand. Well worth it! I say-pay the fine and never play there again...Come on, thats so stupid! They have that kind of event in town and then they make such a messbecause of a noise. Noise? LOL How come that was not the problem in other cities?
  18. LifeFactory wrote: Hi Kristaps. Well, that is fine. U2.com can "keep" anything they want of my texts, although I seriously doubt I have written anything that would be of value to anyone or that someone would want to "keep" anyway. I am just trying to reduce my web footprint and want to cancel any memberships I have with sites I do not do very much with. So, if anyone knows how to do this.... I am sure there must be a way. Nobody can force one to maintain an account, I do not think. What would be the value of that? Thanks! Make a mess and mod's will close your account That's one way, but I am joking. Of course that nobody can force you to stick to your account or to maintain it if you don't want to. I guess, youshould ask directly moderators to help you with that. I didn't saw that option anywhere, but it sure can be done.

Adam has also been hitting A LOT of wrong notes. I'm sure these things will be ironed out as the tour progresses. I personally prefer Bono's vocal style from 1991-1997. Mah, this is...Have an idea. Why don't all of you that have critics over his voice (saying he is getting old, or makes mistakes or whatever), tape yourselfand let us hear how you sound. Come on, show us what you aremade off.
