  1. There have been common aspects surfacing from talk about the yet-to-be-annouced tour. The band have teased us a lot, but within those tidbits are valuable clues. Then, when looking at historical tour facts, it begins to come into focus. As we accept the residency approach that the band has spoken of, the guessing begins about which cities will be represented. Seven seems to be an acceptable number, considering a 61 day window in May + June. If the band plays 3.5 shows each week, there could be a total show count of around 28. Fact: On the first leg of the Vertigo Tour, U2 played 28 s
  2. U2 shop (fanfare) and Amazon are both out of stock of the vinyl. Amoeba still lists it as "preorder". It's showing up on Target.com as "in stock". I'm heading out to the local, independent record stores to track it down today.
  3. This interview may have been slightly pegged down by the other promo activities, but it's GOOD. Worth a listen on the replay. Lauren got Bono & The Edge talking about Songs of Experience, and Bono has a great narrative about how the albums (and their protagonists) relate to each other, as well as another mention of forthcoming song "The Morning After Innocence". Bono reveals a lyric from the song, expanding on the discussion he had with Dorian Lynskey in The Guardian (The Observer, Sat. 11 October). Could this new song be the one fka "Lead Me In The Way I Should Go", a merge, a reco
  4. I became a Christian at age 11, and have learned through trial and tribulation that the church is seriously flawed. I realize now that so much teaching is misplaced. I mean, more time is spent telling people what to do with their lives and how they must live. So as I grew up, I too began to focus on behavior and guilt more than the importance of evangelism and acceptance. But as Alma and Spicy pointed out, many church leaders and Christians have mistreated, rejected and excluded people because of their nature. I want to see the church have a change of heart that involves understanding.
  5. Recently Dan Haseltine, lead singer of Jars of Clay, and his bandmates found themselves under attack for comments Dan made on same sex marriage. The surprise to many is the attack is from Christians who disapproved of Dan's supporting position. I can't think of a better thing to do than support Jars of Clay during this time of turmoil, and support the effort to have meaningful dialogue about gay marriage. His original comments on twitter were quickly dispersed by conservative Christian media, who have made every effort to target the band. I am still naive to the reality that extreme min
