Calendar

What's up with the official 2005 U2 calendar? It's lame! The pictures are, like, all the same. The calendar grids are confusing and impractical. They should have had a more conventional format, with with pictures on a page, and the calendar on another page below it, and it would hang from the top page, and not the middle.

I'm irritated.

Radio 4 Today Programme

If anyone (like me) couldn't face getting up at 6am to hear the Today Programme on Radio 4 that Bono guest-edited this week, you can listen to clips from the show on the website. Bono doesn't make any direct input until the end of the show when they telephone him at home to find out what he thought of it all - you can hear this bit either 17 minutes into the second clip ("Former US President Bill Clinton talks to us about aid for developing countries") or 19 minutes into the last clip ("Our guest editor Bono gives his assessment of how his programme has gone").

"And he asked to use music 'stings' to introduce our regular sports, business and Thought for the Day slots - an innovation which, to his amusement, enraged some listeners."

If you have the cash...

Maybe you want to have a look at this U2 auction for the Tsunami hit people.

If you don't have that much cash, you can donate what you can afford here that is if your based in the UK. If your in the USA you can donate from a number of sites listed here.

If you live in another part of the world, please feel free to add a link for your country! If I get any links for other countries, I will repost this enty tomorrow with those links.

I have three questions.

1. Is there any reason for why U2 has never played "Acrobat" live? I think it'd be beautiful... is it just too heavy? Or something with playing it live that is impossible/hard to do?

2. During the Popmart shows, before they played "Last Night on Earth", there's a strange voice talking about going to the shop. I don't have the Popmart video, can anyone tell me what is going on?

3. Who else really wants to see them perform "I Threw a Brick Through a Window" or "A Day Without Me" this tour?
