Card Exchange

This was forwarded to me from a friend....thought some of you might find be interested :)

Here's your chance to send your greetings to U2 fans around the world and get them in return. This is what you should do if you want to participate: Send a message to u2christmas @ with your snail mail (postal) address. In the email, say what sort of card you'd like to receive (Christmas, Season's Greetings, etc. or no preference). U2Christmas will email you with the addresses of fellow U2 fans to send cards to. If you wish to participate, plan on sending at least 10 cards. Those who wish to send more cards should mention in their email how many they would be willing to send.

Please write in BEFORE DECEMBER 1ST if you want to be part of the
Card Exchange. That way there will be time for cards to go to the
very many countries represented in U2 fandom. Any questions? Email
u2christmas @ Last year, there were close to 200 fans in nearly 20 countries taking part!

Differences between U2 Go Home and U2's Beautiful Day

Got my copy of Slane today ... and wow, it's fantastic! I made an entry in my own LJ about it, here.

I did notice two differences between it and the "U2's Beautiful Day" broadcast that I recorded off TV last year, though. There's probably more that I didn't notice. Anyhow, on the DVD, Bono rant is longer during Sunday Bloody Sunday, so the broadcast was obviously edited, and on the broadcast, at the start of Walk On, Bono dedicated it to his recently deceased father, but on the DVD it's been cut out.

Compared to Boston, it's definitely a good deal better ... the only thing that's better on Boston is the mock fight at the end of Until The End Of The World. Oh yes, and I wish they'd done The Fly at Slane because I love the one from Boston.

Also, I found Bono's hair on The Unforgettable Fire documentary amusing. I wonder how many people told him that he needed to get a hair cut ...
