I'm currently feelin: amused amused

So I'm not sure if a lot of you haven't been following the WGA strike, but a lot of television writers have been 'blogging' about the current situation. I haven't really been keeping up with it much myself, but I do daily visit The No Fact Zone Blog. There was something on there today that really caught my eye. They had a link to writer and actress, Mindy Kaling's (Kelly from NBC's The Office) blog that mentioned one of our favorite lead singers. I had to laugh, and on some level had to completely agree:

Now it’s like, what Africa is to Bono, the WGA negotiations are to me. (Sure, Bono is a better musician than I am a writer, but the trade-off is I bombard people a lot less then Bono talks about Africa and stuff. I mean, I would actually have to think twice whether I would sit next to the guy at a dinner party, cuz I’d be like, oh s#!t, here comes the dissertation on the UN or whatever. Honestly, what does The Edge do?).

My husband and I have had many a silly discussion revolving around the very subject. It's like..."I see it now...Bono doing such-and-such", and then the other bandmates' reactions are added in. "Oh...Edge would be all _____...and then Ad' would be like ____".

LOL...we even do 'voices' when we're really feeling silly. We find it quite entertaining...but our friends would think us mad if they ever saw it. Yes, I know. We're goofy. *grin*

So true!

Edge must have developed some super-zen over the years though. I mean the man still manages to play guitar perfectly with Bono hanging all over his back, hugging and biting and kissing him o_o

Bono hangs all over ALL of them. He and Adam were kissing during Streets almost every night of Vertigo. *smirk*

Oh yes, I know. Bono is a total slut ;)

He doesn't hang on Larry that much though. I don't think Larry would put up with it =P If Bono tried to kiss Larry during a show, I think Bono would end up with a drumstick shoved someplace painful.

*snicker* totally.

that, and how can Bono hang on Larry when there's a big ol' drum kit in the way? Larry knows he needs protection!! *ROFL*

although...they DID bring Lar' out on the ellipse during Love & Peace...how much you wanna bet that Larry threatened B with bodily harm? *snicker snicker*

AIDS in Africa is way more important than greedy screenwriters.

Wasn't the point of the post. I'm not here to debate some antics with you.

P.S- While I agree with you on the AIDs in Africa part, you shouldn't call the screenwriters greedy when you obviously know nothing about the strike in the first place.
