I'm currently feelin: pleased pleased
I'm currently hearin: Like a Song... - U2

Alright, best U2 story you will hear of all day long.

My godmother was really into U2, but only into Rattle and Hum style U2. She apparently also saw them live at that time too, luckyness.
She walks into my room one day (about 3 months ago) and sees my U2 ticket on the mirror. She's says, "Eddie (her husband who kind of looks like Larry to me) bought their new CD but it wasn't any good. He wanted to take me to the concert and I told him no and that he should go alone. (!) He said he didn't want to go to a concert alone (understandable!)"
So at the next family gathering, I see him sitting in the corner mellowing out and I crack out with, "So I heard through the grapevine that you are a U2 fan." -So cliche. And I have the worst pickup lines...haha.

We get to talking for a good 30 minutes about U2 and all their albums. He had Rattle and Hum, ATYCLB and HTDAAB. He said some of their newer stuff was harder to get into (presumably because he was so attached to RaH) but he liked it all the same.
So I say, "Wait until you hear their 90's stuff then!"
I bust out my u2Pod and play him some Achtung Baby. He said he had heard "One" (probably back at Penn State. I've never heard "One" here in Miami) before.
He promised to make me a copy of Rattle and Hum since I didn't have it at the time.

Fast forward a month, I get my copy of R&H. I couldn't believe he actually followed through! So I made him copies of Boy, Achtung Baby, Zooropa and Pop. I thought he was going to listen to them and be all, wtf is this?! and throw them aside.

Then today. LOL. Today.
My mom tells me that I have a message at home of my Godmother in a deadpan voice with U2 blasting in the background.
"I do not thank you for the U2 cds. Eddie does. I've been listening to U2 over 2 hours now. I'm going craaazy!"

I am dying of amusement.
I'm going to see if I can record that message on the phone and link it up here because I'm sure it's too funny for words.

ETA: I did hear it. LOL. Funny as shite. The U2 is really faint though, but I hear it in the background. I'll get you guys a link when I get home. HAH!

*shrug*

It's enough I'm going to their concert, am buying a shirt, am donating money to one.org, and bought the Complete U2 collection from iTunes. I think U2 can afford the...$40 I saved him. A father of three girls mind you. Eek. Weddings.
He wouldn't have been able to buy them if I wouldn't have burned them.

(Sorry if it sounds like I'm being aggresive against you, I'm not. Just a general comment to anyone who thinks the same thing.)

Eh. Music piracy doesn't really bother me. I was just teasing you. I think there's enough ways to justify music piracy. Movie piracy, though... I don't like that at all.
