Bono Pink

Bono on Oprah

Not sure how significant this really is, but it looks as though Bono will be making a small appearance on Oprah tomorrow, Friday Oct. 13th.

Oprah and Bono paint the town "red"

I'd just like to add that I'm from Chicago and had no freakin' idea Bono was anywhere near me w/in the last couple weeks (or whenever they tape these shows). And that sucks to say the least.

Bono to be first guest on pop star show

Bono to be first guest on pop star show

Thu Oct 12, 5:38 PM ET

U2 frontman Bono has signed on as the first guest on musician/producer David A. Stewart's upcoming music-themed interview show for HBO.

Described as "musicians on musicians," the show will feature the Eurythmics member interviewing fellow artists about their craft. One of the show's producers, Jimmy Iovine, runs U2's Interscope Records label.

The pay cable network has ordered six half-hour episodes of the show to air early next year.

U2 and punk rock trio Green Day performed several songs at the official reopening of the Superdome in New Orleans Monday, including a cover of the Skids' "The Saints Are Coming," which was recorded to benefit musicians from the area ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Quiet around here lately...

Well, I was going through some old LJ entries of mine, and I ran across a quote that I thought some people here might get a kick out of.

Months ago, I was talking on AIM to my friend Dawn. I had wandered off to do something else while she was ranting about someone (what an attentive friend I am!). When I came back, she had sent several messages, more than enough to fill the window, so when I looked at them I could only see the last few without scrolling up.

This is what I saw:

Dawn: He keeps randomly IMing me about things I don't care about
Dawn: Like Canadian politics
Dawn: And he goes on and on and on and on and on about Africa.
Dawn: And he is SO POWER HUNGRY.

My immediate reaction was "Is he Bono?!", and I actually asked her that XD By the way, she's not much of a U2 fan, but she got a kick out of it.

I'm of the opinion that if you really love someone (and I love Bono), that you should poke fun at him as much as possible =)

RED - oprah, bono, GAP - friday launch

hey there, i've never posted here before, and i know someone already posted about bono being on oprah, but i'm so excited about WHY he's on oprah, that i wanted to share.

so tomorrow bono, alicia keys, kanye west are all on oprah to launch product (RED). the reason i'm excited about this, is i went to my local GAP store the other day (in canada), and asked if they knew anything about it, and instead of the expected 'huh, whats that?' i got a very enthusiastic manager who told me the RED products were already in the store, but wont be on sale till friday launch day.

GAP has all kinds of stuff - reasonable priced stuff - all red. the tshirts are 30 bucks, they have hoodies with red lining, jeans with red piping, canvas book bags (that i want) and the manager said a red bag that said RED all over it in different languages - even her native Turkish (which was why she was so excited). the tshirts are more like an acid wash red (very nice, and i hate red btw) and are made from organic cotton. fair trade, made in africa, by african cotton, and african workers who are paid a decent wage, and get free medical coverage and free aids meds.

and...GAP gives half of everything bought, to the Global fund for Hiv/Aids meds... they're the highest out of all the RED merchants (Armani gives 40%, Converse 15% and motorola is the lowest at about 3%). And the manager told me that GAP has a 5 yr agreement for this product. this is fantastic news.

so yeah.. bono's on oprah tomorrow. i'm setting the vcr so i can watch it later. catch it if you can, if you have a GAP near you, just go have a look... they also have the affordable RED bracelets and some places might have bandanas.

Here's some info on the new hits CD to be released on November 20th.

And the new song title is "Window in the Sky" (I don't think this has been confirmed yet, but it's probably right)
And for you beachcombers, it's song #402. (Probably)
And for you Bono-fiends, here's a reminder that he will be on Oprah tomorrow.

Right, I think that's all the U2 news.
