In an attempt to futher inundate myself with an overload of data, I've thought of The Great u2 Demographic Survey to kick off the year. Comments will be screened to make it easier on me and on you to release semi personal information. (Like your home phone number, times you sleep at, whether or not you lock your door at night...etc). Try to answer everything honestly so I can compile true results. ( Collapse ) Thanks!
I wanted to thank you guys for the kind words yesterday and to let everybody know that if you want to order one of my Li'l U2 calendars, it's no problem. If you don't want them to crop your pictures all funny, just click the thing that says you won't allow cropping. Because some of us did not see that and got all idiotic and alarmist about it. :)
The Bono interview with Rolling Stone podcast has a new episode so be sure to update it!Here's more info: "Bono: The Rolling Stone Interview Pt. 7 : Zooropa - Atomic Bomb 26:25 1/2/2006 U2's singer discusses all of the U2 albums, from "Zooropa" through "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" with Rolling Stone editor and publisher, Jann S. Wenner in this final segment of the Rolling Stone Interview with Bono."
Song of the Day today is "If God Will Send His Angels (Single Version)"
This used to be one of my favorite songs off my favorite album, Pop. For some reason it reminds me of the holidays, I think maybe because of the short Christmas tree reference and partly because I bought the single back in '97 nearing Christmas. It's one of my favorite singles of all time, having both IGWSHA, as well as "Slow Dancing" and "Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad". It's a single I still come back to over and over, and a song that I think stands out in the entire U2 collection. I even saw this song performed live once, though it was about half the song and kinda of...bad ;) They tried, and I am forever lucky that I heard it that once. At any rate, I love this song. I think the lyrics, just like all the other songs on Pop, are out of this world.
Enough of my love-fest with Pop :) Tomorrow I will try to post pictures of the most unusual, but rather nice Christmas present I've ever been presented--a purse sewed directly from an old copy of a Rolling Stone with U2 on the cover, making the front, and a photo of Bono on the back. It's interesting, to say the least.
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, U2 - 1997
