Random Trivial U2 Refs

Just some randomness - the other night on a TV show down here called Enough Rope with Andrew Denton, Denton was interviewing Jim Carrey. They were talking about relationships and hollywood woman as girlfriends/wives. To one question on this topic Carrey's answer was...

"and a woman needs a man, like a fish needs a bicycle, he was tryin' to throw his arms around the world" (sung quiet well too!)

...lol...so...surely Carrey is a HUGE U2 fan! Maybe.

Recently I have discovered the comedic musings of Weird Al Yankovic...and I'm finding him highly hilarious! I've been hunting for any U2 parodies that he may have done. I've only found his take off of "Hold Me, Thrill Me..." called "Cavity Search". Lol...it's great...very well done. Does anyone know if Weird Al has done any other U2 songs??

"My teeth are a fright...got a huge overbi-(h)ite...
Numb me, drill me, floss me, bill meeeeeeee"

What A Great Day!

I picked up 3 U2 vinyls today, despite the fact that I have nothing to play them on. Ah well. I get the thrill of having them. I paid $9 for all three, which were The Unforgettable Fire, The Unforgettable Fire (Single), and Angel Of Harlem. I was quite pleased.

And then I open an email from Interference with the Solar poster. Man oh man, that made my day.

I thought you guys would get a kick out of this. It's the closest I've ever been (and probably will ever be) to Bono.
