I've seen it posted here before, but can't seem to recall the address.
Anyways, I'm looking for a place to download U2 videos. Live or music videos.
Thanks in advance.
Wow, what's this?!.. it's on MTV right now, just saw them doing Vertigo! :D I didn't know this existed, when was it made??
I just had a "unique" situation I endured, and I thought I'd share it with you all. I had made an avatar for the message boards, and tried to have it hosted on a particular site. It was a picture of Bono ala Mr. MacFisto, with a line he said from the ZooTV: Live From Sidney concert written across the picture.. "Goodbye all you Neo Nazis, I hope they give you Aushwitz". WELL. A few hours later, I got an email from the hosting site moderator. It said, and I quote, "Your picture has been removed and you have been banned from the site for posting offensive material. Please do not attempt to post on our site again." :o!!! I wrote to this site and explained what it meant & where I had gotten that line from, but they insisted that I had made "a posting of a racist nature", and that "complaints were recieved about the picture in question". ?!?! Man, I guess I can sort of see how they might see it as offensive (??), especially since they had no knowledge whatsoever of the meaning of it. But, exactly WHO is that racist against- Nazis?! Please. Probably was just the fact of the nature of the text, they just felt it was "too controversial". But to ban me from the site?! Geez.
Ok. before I even begin explaining myself, let me just say that in my own defense, i do in fact know that i'm an idiot.
So you know that sale that happened on Monday morning...well, I was there precisely at 10 am, ready to buy a ticket for MSG. I wanted general admission, of course, as everyone does...but i thought that the "cheapest tickets were the best seats" (ga)... so i put for the price range on ticketmaster to be the 54 dollar one, the cheap one. Not, of course, thinking much about it and was excited when one ticket came up for that...so i bought it.
Now, as i'm sure you've figured out, it was not GA, but rather a really crappy seat somewhere in the far back. Having already bought the ticket, is there anyway I can let a friend use it or something...because it printed out a ticket, i don't think they are sending me a ticket...and the printed out ticket has my name and everything on it. So would they let someone else in using a ticket that doesn't have their own name on it?
I figure, I've already seen U2 at the brooklyn bridge show and was closer than I would ever hope to be with GA anyway, and I have ok seats for continental...so i don't think i wanna go to the MSG one. I just don't want the ticket to go to waste, you know?
yes. in Adam's thank yous at the hall of fame he thanked "susie". who is this? (is this a stupid question?)
I'm taking a seminar at school called "The Role of Africa in the Contemporary World." It's been an absolutely incredible class, taught by the American Ambassador to Ethiopia. We watched a video today - the BBC's coverage of the 20 year anniversary of the 1984-85 Ethiopian famine. It was an intense film, they showed images and footage from the camps and clinics...it was difficult. Bob Geldof was featured quite a bit, and they started talked about Band Aid and Live Aid. I'd seen clips of Live Aid on I Love the 80s, but I'd never really learned much about it. I got the chills when I saw how many people were at the Live Aid concert. Geldof organized/helped organize a wonderful thing, and it brought in so much money to help the people in Ethiopia. They also showed some clips of recording the Band Aid cd, and of course there was Bono. The Ambassador actually showed Bono around the country when he visited a few years ago...I need to ask him what he thought of Bono.
I think one of the hardest things about the film was seeing the video they showed at the concert, and then seeing that, 20 years later, Ethiopia is heading towards the same fate all over again. But lord...Geldof did something incredible with that concert.
Just a quick blurb to say I got my tickets in the mail today for the Saturday Atlanta show in November.
Still working on getting tix to friday nights show there as well.
