  1. I could have gone there, but I wanted a more reputable source, like here.
  2. One that has a little LCD with a clock on it (I don't know if it's digital in any other way really because I'm not a hipster)
  3. My playlist is entitled "OH NO! NOT U2!" in honor of everyone I drive crazy with my favorite band. I have 101 of their songs on it, and I like to use the playlist to practice my singing skills.
  4. Except for the hipsters who brought vinyl back in style with digitized record players.
  5. Looks like there’s a lot I don’t know about attending a U2 concert (my first will be in June.) How do you get a GA?
  6. U2 have reached me spiritually too. I didn’t convert because of them, but when I struggled with my faith, God reached out to me through U2, my favorite band, and saved me from despair.God bless U2, Billy Graham (RIP), and everyone who believes because of them.
  7. OK. If I had the good luck (and the money) for a front row U2 ticket, I’d risk the rail once , quite possibly with a helmet and other gear to minimize crushing since I’m small too but a crazy fan.
  8. I will be listening with rapt attention in Washington DC. Where will you hear it?
  9. I like “Song for Someone “ better than “13”, but “13” is a good new take on or reprise of “Song for Someone.” And who doesn’t love the flirting and gratitude flowing through “Landlady “.
  10. Welcome, Stellaria (pretty name) My favorite SOE songs are “Lights of Home,” “Summer of Love,” and “The Little Things That Give You Away.”
  11. The security guy’s experience makes sense. I had no idea Larry has that kind of pain to deal with, magnified who knows how much by his job. Lay down a thundering beat with your hands and feet while your tendons pulse with pain? Ouch Larry also has a naturally stony face and his features are stiff whether he likes it or not. Like in Rattle and Hum, when he gets to sit on his idol Elvis’s motorcycle, his small smile would only indicate mild pleasure if he was Bono, but though he’s containing his excitement, he’s the happiest kid in the world at that moment, if you know how to read him.
  12. I haven’t paid as much attention to Larry, since he’s way better at keeping secrets than Bono and he’s always been thin, but he’s a health nut and the band’s voice of reason, so if he’s lethargic or upset, that’s troubling for him and the whole band. U2 needs all of its members and it needs them all happy and healthy, but what the members need for happiness and health change somewhat with time, and those changes are rarely insignificant, especially changing old habits. St. Luke (patron saint of doctors and health and artists ), St. Cecilia, St. Gregory the Great, St. Apollonia, St. Genesius, S
  13. I see what you’re saying now. The whole truth will set Bono free, when he’s ready. Maybe all the little hints that escape are a result of his truth telling instinct and his fear fighting inside him. His fear is still too strong to let him speak out, but his instinct can’t be entirely suppressed. It must be rough. I’ll keep praying for him.
  14. That makes sense for the Zoo and Zootopia, but where did Zooropa and ZooTV come from?
  15. Bono has a really hard time keeping secrets, so if he's keeping the lid on his health scare successfully, it must have been traumatic indeed. Maybe he'll talk about it one day, but I don't need or want to know about it before then. I don't doubt it was something real and scary, but I don't want to waste time on useless pity that he doesn't need or want.
  16. I think he's right, and he's not being sexist. He said that the girly situation wasn't all bad, and he didn't say he wanted it to go away. He just wants some more stuff for the boys, which is completely possible without taking away or beating down any of the girly music. I'm a girl, but I prefer rock to pop, and I'm waiting for the day it revives (maybe I can help it somehow). Rock on, Bono and Eli!
  17. Dear Wahine, Thank you for this post. I'm not Republican or Democrat or right or left or conservative or liberal, because I've rejected all labels except Independent because I'm tired of of how vicious and polarized politics has gotten, and because I'm tired of all the whining and non-solutions coming from all sides. I know how you feel and you've summed up my own feelings well. I don't and never have agreed with all of U2's politics, but hell, I probably don't agree with them on pizza toppings or which is their own best song, and I've never thought I had to agree with my favorite ba
  18. Maybe I should turn in my fan card for not knowing this, but what is the origin of U2's "Zoo" running gag? (ZooTV, Zooropa, Zootopia?)
  19. I didn’t know it was in the video copy, and in that case, I’ As mystified about the cut as you.
  20. Hahah, I can just picture the guy’s lecturing their crazy front man: Edge: Amps? Check Adam: Lights? Check Bono: Microphones: Check Larry: Helmet? Check Bono: Helmet? Larry: Yeah, we don’t want you spilling your brains all over the stage if you lose your grip Bono: OK, “Dad.” (Takes helmet without much enthusiasm, but puts it on. But when he climbs the rigging, he strips off the helmet and tosses it into the audience for a big finish, and the lucky girl who catches it treasures it, wears it to every U2 concert and uses it to teach her kids about U2’s awes
  21. Royalty money might not be the problem. It could be that the copyright holder of “Send in the Clowns “ just doesn’t want the song included in the DVD and won’t change his mind for any amount of money, so U2 either has to put out a choppy DVD or get sued for using the song without permission. Copyright is a minefield.
  22. "My hands are tied . . . my body bruised . . ."
  23. I have never seen such a wicked grin on Larry's face before.
