I'm currently feelin: chipper chipper

Hiya!!

I underestimated the temperature today when I left for school and dressed too warmly. So right before class I ran into the bookstore to buy a t-shirt to change into. Before I got on line, I was browsing the DVDs and came across Rattle and Hum - $9.99. Now I know I'm posting to a die-hard fan community, but should I go back for it? I really don't like impulse buying, especially being a poor college student, and I'm not a *huge* fan of the CD. But I would definitely buy if I knew it was worth every dollar and then some. Thanks for your help!

The boys come back to my home turf in 2 weeks!! I'm hoping I can get to MSG and at least wait outside in case they come out. Anybody else going?

That's random because I was just at Amoeba Music in LA today, and saw Rattle and Hum for the same price! haha

I have it, and I love it. I know it got some bad reviews, but I think the performances are great. They are all different, and in my opinion, it's worth the ten bucks. Plus, Bono looks great in it!

I'm a poor college student too. I feel ya! :)

I think U2 should take all poor college students into consideration and give them free stuff. DVDs... CDs... concerttickets, whoops how'd that get in there? ;)

Mmmmm, yeah I was thinking that even if not for the music, I should get it just to have yet another DVD of Bono footage to drool over. ;)

Rattle and Hum is a must!!! That's all I can say. You'll get a kick out of Joshua Tree era U2!!! And if you do get it be on the lookout for a tall guy in a white t-shirt bouncing up and down in the front during Helter Skelter (in the beginning of the movie) because that's my fiancee!! :D

I don't know about all of this "sexy" business (*smirk*), because Rattle and Hum, for me, is simply a fantastic display of musical achievement by a band that had just established itself as Rock N' Roll Incarnate. The very opening of Streets (straight from Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona...just across town for me) is just breathtaking. I know the band has said critical things about the film in the past, but it has amazing moments that tear your heart out. It is indeed a must-see for any U2 fan, diehard or otherwise.

Thanks for your input! Indeed, I saw Streets listed in the back and I immediately remembered the emotion I felt when they performed it at both shows I went to this year and almost bought it just for that.

Oh yes yes, BUY IT! Poverty comes second to musical genius! And I'm a poor student too so I'm with you on that, hehe. ;)

But yes. The DVD is amazing. I think I sat there like this :O for ten minutes after it ended, the sheer emotion and passion of the playing was so immense and I got so swept away by it all. And I just adore the hell outta it! :D

Poverty comes second to musical genius.

That was brilliant. I think I'm going to use that quote often from now on! Poor students unite!!

Lol! Yes indeed! Use it whenever you need to justify buying concert DVDs over course books (as I will do next week, oh the joys of my logic)!
