  1. Wondering if anyone here was able to go to this at the time.

    9288 So is this a Mexican-origin soap opera (novellas as they would call them) which is dubbed in Romanian?

    9287 No freakin' way, Chris. Hmmm. You sure you're not the writer who wrote that character & based her on me? I Have always been someone who wants to do what's right, I DO try to stay on the right path, etc. (Not saying I've never made a mistake.) The whole description would fit me! Glad to say that I'm no longer too naive for my own good - just like the character u described who has learned from experience.

    9279 Reeeally surprised me. Never thought about any part of the world being unfamiliar w/ tamales - but of course it's probably just because my country is attached to Mexico over here! Not sure if Janette meant the inside when she mentioned corn Meal wrapping, but the entire thing is wrapped in corn Husks. You peel back the husk to eat the tamale. Couldn't find a pic w/them covered in sauce, but I prefer them w/sauce - a particular kind of red sauce for them. Btw, pronounced "tah MAH lay" or "tuh MAH lay." (The Americanized Anglicanized way: "tuh MAH leez.") (Btw, the joke for a weather forecast is: "Chili today. Hot tamale.") 9284 Well let's outwhack the whacky system. How about if I quote my own post which quotes Zhivvy's & add a cut-&-paste quote from Chris (pain_18_) followed by my own comment? Chris said: "9280 This is a surprisingly intervention of Alma's, first because of the fact that she never comes in the counting thread, second because of the beautiful story and third because her name is a name often given by the Mexicans to their daughters (Alma, remember the soap-opera I was telling you about?) !!!" Actually, Chris, I do check out this thread once in a while - I don't know if I've ever commented in here though - maybe once or twice. Depends on who's here & what's going on. I like the present company here plus you're talking about cooking. But, yes - I remember the soap-opera u told me about. I told u that I hope the character Alma isn't a beeyotch & u said she's really nice & great or something like that. I was glad!

    9283 Well if all of this isn't just hilarious. Yes, the system is getting a little whacky here.

  8. "Every show ended with all of the evening's performers gathering onstage to sing Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released." At the final show, the Police handed their instruments to U2. "It's been called a symbolic passing of the keys to the musical kingdom," said Copeland. "But since we had been defunct for a number of years, I'm not sure we had any keys in our possession. We joked around that Andy [summers] should de-tune his guitar before handing it over to the Edge."" !!! !!! !!! So glad to learn this. "But since we had been defunct for a number of years, I'm not sure we had any keys in our possession." U2 has said that the fact The Police & another band were on a kind of hiatus at one point really helped out U2.
  9. Anyone who hasn't checked out the photo in the photo gallery that just looks something like a Joshua Tree record leaning up against something is also missing something special. Edible setlist, too. Nice.
  10. Has anyone ever told Oswaldo that the child in his avi is precious?
  11. Thanks Shannon. Yeah, I know. I'm just wondering how many posts I have to do to get to the next name. One of the other U2 sites has a name I love for people when they're new there: 'Stranger in a strange land.'
  12. So, Cam, how is it possible that now you're Party Girl & I'm what - 'Playboy Mansion'? At least I absolutely Adore the song 'Party Girl.' What do I have to do to get the name of that stupid magazine away from my username. And Fernanda is only Blue Room? How's that possible?
  13. If the real cover was like that, I never would've bought the special boxed set in the beautiful, classy storage box.
  14. Shannon, you just made me realize I forgot to thank Fernanda. Thanks Fernanda!
  15. Lol. I can't stop laughing at this. In fact, the 2 hosts look more the part than Larry. The 2 hosts here: SERious ARtists. In fact, the guy on the right - to look at him, he has Visions of such import that he can only Hope to deliver them to some part of society - but can he ever hope to reach the masses? No doubt a tormented Soul who struggles to deliver right the music of his soul.
  16. Yes this is hilarious. Too bad they didn't have a cutout of Adam in black & standing up straight, but the hosts are Totally Excellent there. And Larry. And the backdrop.
  17. Thanks for posting Oswaldo. Just to let you know, though, Malahide created a post about this under the 'U2 News & Rumors' section & this is what bigwave said about it there: "if this news not on U2.com, then its not official. Sometimes stuff gets leaked, sometimes people speculate (and get lucky), sometimes press prints stuff they have been asked not to, who knows... So, until we see anything announced on the main page then its not official news. I am sure we will get to know something definite pretty soon though."

    I didn't even mention how creative that was. Definitely groom-cake-worthy!

    Grooms Cake

    Sweet! (Including literally. I'll bet it was delicious.) And 100% awesome, too. : )
  20. Thanks Fe! Something about that photograph. How great it would be to be able to live a creative life like that, huh? A creative community or group of artists exploring & bringing different ideas/concepts to life. Together, they're more than the sum of their parts.
  21. Nah... I want it all! I'm aiming for the full album to listen to! I'm greedy like that. A song would be nice too yes... Well, sometimes if you want to reach the top of a tall tree, you have to aim for the moon, right?
  22. I was just thinking: there will be people who come here & say: No! Just give us The Album or Nothing at all! Those who are my friends who will say that, I Do feel for what you're saying but I can't help laughing at that expectation. But hey, yeah - when the time comes that the album is ready, do show us love by giving us a song off the album B4 the album is released.
  23. I.M.H.O.: Just looked again at something febottini said: "..it would be very nice to feel excited again waiting for a new song... to be thrilled by the countdown. So it would have to be announced earlier to attract people´s attention" And I actually agree. MEET IN THE MIDDLE: 1) Give all of us who had no problem w/the movie-trailer thing what we enjoy by sending everyone (subs or subs-&-members) a day-ahead heads-up so those of us that want to can join our friends at countdown, 2) Give those who were disappointed this: nothing to get so disappointed about. How? By just NOT calling it something like 'Subscribers Special - Not to be missed.' In fact, why not just let people KNOW Ahead Of Time Exactly WHAT it is that is going to be posted? (Or at least a Much better idea of what it will be.) Then those interested can join the countdown to seeing it all together for the 1st time - & those uninterested don't get tantalized by what will surely be a let-down to them? I Do feel for them & care about how they feel.
