"Linear" @ 01:36 pm

kimmyzkins:
I'm currently feelin: hopeful hopeful

So, here's the deal. I just today heard of this extra-bonus film that supposedly came with certain editions of No Line On The Horizon. Unfortunately, I have naught but the simple CD. Not even the deluxe edition.  I'd really love to see Linear, and I'd love even more to be able to put it in my iPod. Anyone know of how I could get my hands on it, or at least a place I could watch it?
 
I've looked everywhere, but it's entirely possible I've not been looking hard enough, or in the right places, or something.

I have the CD but I'm not so sure it's worthy of immediate concern. (Only in my opinion, of course...) It's some story of a man on a motorcycle, seriously, I can find very little plot to the story other than the music, which I've heard. I really don't understand the fuss but I'm a little curious. Tried downloading it on certain "torrents" whatever and didn't want to have yet *another* password whatnot. (They warned me of copyright infringement, too :p) Guess I'm not looking hard enough either. Sorry I couldn't be of much help but I thought some kind of comment would be better than no comment at all, lol xD

That's mostly it, too, is that my friend says she saw it and it was 'artful' and 'a whole new way of looking at the music' and a few more turns of phrase that meant the exact same thing, basically, and here I am with my basic CD and going, 'Oh... yeah, yeah, it's pretty brilliant, isn't it?'

And I've never used any sort of torrent, so I was a bit overwhelmed when I went to a site and there were passwords and 'threads' and things. I'll try my best, though, because now it's mostly a matter of curiousity. Thanks, though!

I still haven't watched mine. D: (I kinda should've *not* gotten the fancy-ultra-deluxe NLotH...)

D: how sad. (Haha, don't worry about it, if nothing else you at least don't have to spring for the extra-super-special 20th anniversary edition when they invariably release it in 20 years.)

Also? I haven't figured out how to edit comments yet, but I ADORE your icon. That is all.

Thanks!

I think you have to have a paid account to edit. And mine expires soon, noooo!

That explains... well, a lot, actually. I see little notes at the bottoms of people's comments saying, 'post edited at...' and I go 'D: why can't I do that?!' At least I feel better knowing it's not just my own ineptitude at LJ. Thanks. :P

I get about a million hits when I google 'u2' + 'linear' + 'torrent' so I think you should be able to find one to download.

Alright, thanks. I haven't ever used torrents before so I was a bit wary at first, but whatever. I'm sure I'll figure it out. It's more an issue of curiousity than anything, now. :D

I have to agree with other commenters... I downloaded it (legally) but still haven't watched past the first 3 songs, it's so supremely dull and pointless! Wish I'd just bought the regular CD instead of the more expensive version. (Even the poster that came with it was rubbish!)

I know, right? (re: the poster) :/ I wish it had the guys on it.

Dude, they gave you a poster in the album... without the band on it? Not only is that a total rip, it kinda defeats the purpose of advertising, doesn't it?

Yeah, it's just the album cover art.

We must have different posters... mine has the guys on it, but it's still really boring. :|

You might even find it on Youtube or Google video. I see a bunch of videos up, but since I haven't seen the actual movie yet I dunno if that's it or not.
