Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Seconds" from War

Image hosted by Photobucket.comI have recently fallen in love with this song. I don't even remember why I went out of my way one day to listen to it. Probably because someone mentioned the whole Edge/Bono thing. The lead for this song is sung by Edge, FYI. The best part of this song is without doubt, THAT BASSLINE. It's so simple and yet genius at the same time. Three notes. Three notes and I'm hooked. Larry's bass drum in the beginning is also amazing. It really is a big standout from War, unlike hue126 said in his review. Even better is the middle part where the "I wanna be an airborne ranger!" part kicks in. It's so wonderfully random. (I just blasted this in my ear and looked to my right thinking someone was talking in my ear when it's really that soldier. I knew it was there, but it scared me nonetheless.) See? GENIUS!

I'm posting a link to the lyrics cause my html skills aren't at all good, and these are pwning me right now.

And I don't think it's "alpha ranger". I originally thought it was "Air Force ranger", but it sounds a bit more like "airborne ranger" now that I'm listening to it intently. I know that when John Bender says it in TBC, it's "Air Force ranger". It doesn't matter. I'm being anal again. :/

Toronto - 12//09//05

Hey there - I have questions about the show on the 12th. I'm travelling from NS to Toronto on the 7th and leaving the 13th. From what I see most fans are attending shows later in the week, but when should we show up to line up? I have fan GA tickets and want to be as close as humanly possible of course. I still don't have my fan card (waiting 5 months) but I was told that my print out with member number is sufficient. Also, do we know yet who will be the supporting act?

Let me know if you are attending on the 12th...It won't be long now. It's officially their next show. thanks in advance!

i heart you

Just curious

Random useless thought but...

Last night i had nothing to do so i decided to watch the DVD that came with How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb again for the millionth time. For some reason, this time, i caught of glimpse of Adam's teeth while he was talking and i noticed something on his lower teeth that looked like braces?

Whats up with that? Are they braces?

I dont know how many of you know of Julian Beever, but he is an amazing sidewalk artist. He only uses sidewalk chalk, but his pieces are amazing.
This is a peice he did obviously aroun the time of the G8 summit. I thought it would be fit to post here. If Im wrong, please take it down.

Seven Days.

I just read about this movie in Entertainment Weekly called 7 Días.
Here is the plot synopsis from
Claudio Caballero decides to gamble $500,000 dollars in a desperate attempt to raise the cash necessary to bring the world's biggest band (U2) to Mexico.

Check out the poster.

Edun tee, anyone?

So, I was at the Barcelona show last weekend (best concert ever! Mini-review at my journal) and since I went GA, I was one of the last to get to the merchandise booth afterwards, which means there wasn't much of anything left :(

Anyway, I really really wanted the Edun tee they had on the board, but they had none left to sell. It was a medium/dark blue, with the Vertigo dates on the back just under a Joshua Tree-style, uh, tree. Anyone know which tee I'm talking about? It cost 50 euros. I've scoured eBay to no avail. I know it's a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone had one to sell. All sizes considered. Or, if any of you know where I can buy it (I'm in Europe), please let me know.

Thanks guys! :)
