  1. Thanx much, Max. I was just about to say: Toronto, here I come. But NYC is affordable for me. Toronto - not so much.
  2. true... but East Rutherford is so close to NY that sometimes is considered as if it were - have seen it before... I got the answer I was looking for already, as you know. Then I saw some folks talking here. I debated whether to ask about it again here, knowing the answer might make ERutherford tix disappear. I was in the middle of picking out a ticket in another screen. They were available. Then I asked here. I think I shot myself in the foot by asking here. Tix were available in ERutherfordt - til I asked this question here. Now they're gone. Argh. *Sigh.*
  3. What are people talking about here re: NY? There are no NY dates announced.
  4. When fact is fiction & tv reality! 'Don-the-Con Swamp' makes this a REAL CONCERN in America these days! (You could change 'tv' to 'twitter.')

      America did not elect Trump. It's an illegitimate election because of all the illegal & immoral Voting Rights Violations by legislators (of a certain political stripe) to stop the poor, elderly, minorities, & college students from voting & to make some of their votes not count. Despite that, Hillary got about 2 & a half MILLION more votes than Trump, & only the 'Electoral College' gave Trump the 'win.' Things are still going to court.

  5. let them announce the tour and you'll have your Guinness record Lol. True. So true. And long time no speak Monica, so "Hello!"
  6. Well I've pitched the idea and it's been approved. Turns out it's also a long weekend (I had forgotten that) so that worked in my favor. Planning on playing a set of one song from each album, not necessarily in chronological order, just trying to find songs that I can confidently play. As I'm a bit of a novice and I'm going to be playing in the corner of the games room because that's where the power point is, I'm calling it "The 90° & Inexperience Show" Will post the setlist later. A great idea. Sounds great. All the best w/ it.
  7. What we really need is to organize a 'Guinness Book of World Records' effort in the following category: 'The most fans gathered online at the same time at the same place (U2.com) for the same purpose - to shamelessly Beg & Plead with U2 to Go On Another Tour or at least Play A Few More Concerts - as long as the concerts Include New York!' It really is an actual 'GuinnessBookOfWorldRecords' category. You probably just haven't heard of it yet. But it exists. Because I just created it. Just now. Suggestions will be taken (here) on a rolling basis regarding when this online BeggingPleading gathering will occur.

  9. I think there should be a preference in pre-sale given to people who've had a subscription for over a year - the reason is that I think people who subscribe just for pre-sale are usually (or often) way off on guessing when it's really getting close to ticket-sale time for a tour because false rumors happen about that. I wonder the thoughts of longtime subscribers about this - do u think I'm right that people who subscribe just for pre-sale just when they think tix are about to start selling are often way off in guessing when the sales will start?
  10. For all the kids graduating into 'the real world' - let's keep them in our hearts! It's a mad/crazy world out there.

  11. One of the best performances of 'Bullet The Blue Sky' imho:
  12. Hi U2LAWoman! I hear u, but what u speak of is mostly in the south. (I'm Christian & born & raised in the northeast & I live here, & I haven't met any Christians here who think that way.) I've had conversations about it w/a Christian cousin of mine raised in the south who lives there: I think the gun thing started as something left over from the civil war. My cousins & I think in some different ways about it, but I still love 'em & they still love me . I'm not defending it when I say this, but I think a fear of "outsiders" coming in & 'telling them what to do' turned into a fear or concern that some day laws might be passed against them being able to practice their religion their way - but then politics & hyper-capitalism (gun manufacturers, etc) took that concern & ran away w/it & made it seem like more of a cause for fear or concern than it really is. Not that I think Christians should use weapons if such a day ever came anyways, which I don't think it ever would. Besides, Jesus didn't let his disciples take up physical weapons even to defend him, so... Anyways, our constitution speaks of the need for "a" militia, & to me & a lot of other Americans that means one - not a lot of little militias around the country that a bunch of different people make - and the Constitution speaks of the need for "a well-regulated militia" - which to me & a lot of other Americans means the National Guard. Well, that's my 2-cents worth. "We need love&peace..Lay down your guns. All u daughters of Zion, All u Abraham sons..Baby don't fight, we can talk this thing thru.."
  13. Wow, Cam - I hadn't seen that video b4. Thanx 4 posting! Americans who considered themselves Christian who supported what Reagan was doing in Central America didn't represent all American Christians. They didn't speak for me (although I'm American & Christian). They represented their own viewpoint. I understand where Bono was coming from. I don't think his viewpoint was simplistic - I think it is politics that oversimplifies things. In fact politics oversimplifies to the point of polarization - when it comes to important subjects, politics paints life as if there are only 2 opinion-positions to choose from - as if you're either a saint or you're evil - depending on which 'side' a person chooses. Real life isn't like that. Central Americans who were struggling for self-determination, human rights, & food to feed their families found themselves in the middle of 2 polarized extremes - a simplistic paradigm of 'capitalism vs communism.' In the process, a lot of truth & innocent human lives got sacrificed. The American Constitution & American laws were also flouted by some of the American politicians who supported what was going on in Central America. P.S. Speaking of 'Bullet The Blue..' which is a great song, there are only 2 people in the world who I'd 'take a bullet' for, & Bono's 1 of them (not that I'd want to think of such a thing ever happening, Lord forbid). It's not a celebrity thing & it's not that I think he's a saint - it's for the sake of the good he does.
  14. 1: U go,B-man - blazing thru congress! 2: U go,u2.com - for the webby! 3: I finally found my real name.

    E-stage Party

    Does anyone know the exact date that mirrorball-dude (Mark) finally made it up on stage? (I was so happy for him, btw.)

    *U2*

    I just commented the same thing in 2016 (a little while ago) at your drawing of Larry at the drumkit - I said I like the font you used for the "U2." (I see u uploaded this in 2014.) Well, it is a great font. Beautiful.
  17. I can picture the scene in the music-video where someone in the band is dancing & someone else (or all of the others) in the band is/are checking out that guy's dancing, kind of considering it & appreciating it. Really funny. I loved it. I think Pop was a great concept. So was Discotheque. One of my all-time favorites from U2 is the remix of Discotheque w/ another one of their songs. Phenomenal.
  18. This drawing makes me think: Save. The. Trees.

    OakWalker's Dream

    Btw, love the coloring in the tree on the right. (Is it a mighty oak?) If the trees could thank u, they would, for bringing their beauty, majesty, & importance to people. Our outbreath is their inbreath - and vice versa. I love trees, too.

    OakWalker's Dream

    WOW to the tree on the right! You really do have a love of trees & it shows. What's happening w/ the trees on the left reminds me of trees uprooted in a tornado. Of course, I realize the artist might've had something else in mind in drawing them (a different interpretation).
  21. This looks to me like gargoyles come to life from architecture.
