I'm currently feelin: disappointed disappointed

*pouts*


So after having a fabulous day I get home, and when I see that the big brown package from amazon with my U2 calendar has gotten here I think "wow, my day is just getting better and better!"

But uh, I'm really disappointed by it. Basically, its to the point that if I had seen it in the store i definitely wouldn't have bought it. Its mostly pictures we've seen before, some of them are just variations of the same exact shoot! The design of the calendar itself was weird too...its unusable. The boxes supposed to represent the dates are all in weird orders and running vertically and crap. I really don't want to sound ignorant..is this a normal way of doing calendars? Or was Four5One just trying to be creative or something? I mean, i'm still going to use it and all because I bought it and its not like the pictures are bad...i just wish maybe they could have put in some live shots, or different eras, or anything! Or maybe a usable format! OY! Has anyone else gotten theirs yet? What do you all think?

My 2003 U2 calendar has the dates running vertically. I'm still not used to it. If I recall, it also starts with Monday on top. Weird. The boxes are too small to keep all the family stuff going on, so I keep another calendar next to it for the kids and hubby. The U2 one has *my* stuff on it. But, if I'm trying to figure out what the day is, I look on the normal calendar.

I saw the pictures posted on interference. I love the close-up shots of the guys, but if I recall, there were two of the band on bicycles - I thought that was just weird.

Haha thanks! Hopefully i won't have too much going on i guess lol, so everything will fit...and yes, the close ups ARE good, though they had an older one of edge...but its all good. And the bicycle ones are a little weird! I mean they're kind of neat, but they have three versions of it...*shakes head*

Three on bikes. Hmmmm. Like they couldn't have come up with some different shots. I would love to have some of them in the studio or during public appearances. Oh well.

Is this an official calendar?  I always get the unofficial ones from PushPosters (they haven't got next year's on there yet) and they are usually pretty good. I did see an official one in the shops last year but it was all live shots from the Elevation Tour which wasn't really of interest to me.
