Floating Rocks

Happy Birthday, Mister MacPhisto!

I was visiting atu2.com just a moment ago, browsing through the latest news headlines, when I happened to notice a rather interesting article on the "This Date in U2 History" sidebar... on May 7th, 1993, 10 years ago yesterday, MacPhisto was born!

May 7, 1993: U2 rehearses - Bono creates MacPhisto

U2 play a dress-rehearsal for the upcoming European tour in front of a small group of fans in Rotterdam. Bono creates a new character for the European tour, and wears a red version of his black, leather "Fly" outfit. When the tour begins, this new character would be called "MacPhisto" and would not wear the same costume tried out tonight, instead donning a gold lame suit and devil's horns.



Happy Birthday, Mister MacPhisto... you old devil, you!

VROOM! VROOM! TRABBIES COMING BACK...

This week's sign that the apocalypse is upon us: a German company is bringing back the Trabant. The firm Sachsenring has launched a new version of the legendary fiberglass car and plans to promote it in Africa as the AfriCar. Former Trabant owners and U2 fans everywhere would probably agree that the Trabant is best used as a rock tour light fixture, and/or as a lobby installation for large, forward-thinking
museums.


trabbies hold a special place in my heart because most of my family comes from what used to be East Germany. Horrible cars to drive though. So yes, they are best used as rock tour light fixtures...lol
