    My prime interest is my book, which centers on lyrics in popular music and how the delineate in terms of common inspiration, indicating connective consciousness in humanity via an aspect of the Divine feminine. This follows Bono's lyrics for U2 the most, but also goes to considerable depth with The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, REM, Depeche Mode, Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Poe, Bjork, Tori Amos, Jane Siberry, Nine Inch Nails and many many more from the '90's to the present.

  1. My Mom had me promise to post this poem she wrote for the concert. I gave her my subscription tickets. She took one brother, but many family were there by the 'e'. I'd have posted in the livestream but she posted not quite on time. TONIGHT We can be as one tonight... And we were Rock Solid Take it on back home Well the band they played And the turf was toffed And the spliffs Engaged Really quite alot And the tunes were played We were all at home And we danced our hearts From our heads to toes Quite a lot was gained As we did reflect 'Bout bein global citizens With respect Yeah the plan to be To be as one And well the stage at hand Was really grand And the power flowed Right on thro the band And we howled as loud As we could howl And the Bono said Lay your cell phones down And be here Don't watch We can be as one And we all linked up And we all rocked on Larry Mullen played With his father passed The Edge lost his edge But he came right back And Adam was smiling And Bono was strong May we all Rock And on a personal note All our family showed And lo and behold We can be as One -as I am 1000's of miles away, it was v. gratifying to run across my brother and mother on the tail end of a youtube video from the show @5:06. https://youtu.be/Gfv_R11ovFM?list=PLz31r_gwVKwoKy_TN4X_jX6Y7yQbF_M07
  2. This song title is a word for word quote of what I put over my contact information when I presented my book in progress on a flash drive to Bono in Chicago 2011. Its center (its heartbeat) is U2's lyrics, though it is all inclusive and refers many other artists. This is my way of saying that for being the U2 community, I hope to offer it for free as an e-book on a preliminary basis before the release of Songs of Experience, as a thank you for you being you. You certainly don't have to look if you don't want to! Welcome, though if you do, to The Raydiant Labyrinth. There are a few connections for your perusal and/or enjoyment : ) -which should give you the notion that you will never encounter anything plumbing a further depth with more insane attention to detail, than this will present. Thanks to everyone and anyone who happens to engage it. All the best.
  3. sadly couldn't watch it. never was "at issue" on the tax matter though it would seem I'd appear to me. I am far far more concerned with other things.
  4. U2's music may be a holy grail; however my conflicts with Bono's endorsements for Africa in terms of foreign policy is threatening to become absolute. This is why. http://raysondetre.tumblr.com/post/53622904058/my-essay-is-below-this-reblog-iggymogo-g-8
