  • Favourite U2 Single
    New Year's Day! Always a great experience to hear it. A close 2nd (to me, always connected w/NYD) is Sunday Bloody Sunday. These are the 2 songs that introduced me to U2 in '83 & made them my all-time favorite band for life, so they'll always be my favorite 2 songs. Since I guess SBS wasn't released as a single, technically my 2nd favorite 'single' would be 'In God's Country.'
  • Favourite U2 Person
    BONO!!! (& his mates. I appreciate each. Vive la difference.) Let me add: Edge's guitar-playing from the start was a Unique, never-b4-heard phenomenon!!!
  • Fav. Other Bands
    My longtime 2nd-favorite (after U2, which will always be my favorite): Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. (B4 U2 came along, my fave was The Police.) These days, I'm loving 'For King and Country' & Toby Mac, for ex. Not only do they rightly glorify the King of kings, Yehovah/Yahweh, & my Lord & Savior, Christ Yeshua/Jesus, but their music is great, too. There's A Lot of music that I love & appreciate in many 'genres,' including gospel/Christian, folk-rock, folk, soft rock, rock, classical guitar, etc, but when it comes to bands & popular music, as far as what band's music is my all-time favorite, which band is 'my band,' & what band I'm interested in keeping up with: it's a U2-Universe for me! Always will be! Not overboard, but I do have a love or passion for U2 - for its humanitarian 'take' on sociopolitical consciousness, its willingness to use its spotlight for the common good, & of course its music!! : )

    Came here to see about the giveaways, but I'm wondering if the CoVid-19 concern is putting that on hold. Most important: people's safety. Be safe folks!

  10. Pray for PEACE in our world, especially the Middle East which is a powder keg. (Let's don't let a WWIII ever happen!)

  11. I hear ya. I'm very concerned too. 🙁 I'm an American, too. Propaganda is a huge root of the problem. As you probably know, any media outlet that exists to promote one political party & demonize the other is propaganda, & it's dangerous. It's brainwashing & cult-making. Hitler couldn't have done what he did without it. Fox is the Republican propaganda & MSNBC is the Democratic. I remember when we only had the straightforward, objective journalism outlets. Maybe you know this already, but what happened was that the Reagan administration took away the 'Fairness Doctrine' that we used to have under the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Because they took that away, what I call 'Hate Radio' flourished: hotheaded hatemongers riling people up on the radio against others - followed by the start of FoxFakeNews. Then, after 50 yrs of having a Voting Rights Act (the thing that MLK, Jr was killed for achieving!) the VRA got watered down in court because Republicans basically said - 'look - we have a black president so we don't need the VRA anymore.' They just wanted the federal government to not be looking over their shoulders anymore at how they conduct elections. Trump is the result. We need the Fairness Doctrine back - and we need a new Voting Rights Act. We need America back! (P.S. - My opinion is that Not voting for a candidate opposing Don-the-Con is just giving him an extra vote.) (P.P.S. - I almost forgot: I remember consulting unbiased fact-checking sites during the last presidential election & one of them - PolitiFact dot com I think - checked to see the percent of major statements made by Trump that were partly or completely false compared to those by Hillary: It was something very close to 80% false or partly false from Trump! It was around 20% from Hillary, which is just average for politicians of any political party. They don't cancel each other out - truly they don't: Trump is Incompetent & DANGEROUS. He will Lie us into WWIII if we let him.)
  12. PLEASE: PRAY for PEACE in the MIDDLE EAST & AMERICA.

  13. Wishing the Happiest of Happy Birthdays to 'the B man' on this day, & wishing all good things to his family always.

  14. "A world in white gets underway!" - U2. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that whoever believes in him would not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16.  Hoping for everyone peace, all good things, & happiness in 2019!

  15. Prayers for Bono's beautiful voice. All the best to Bono.
