Hello Hello!!


November 27th, 2004

The new Propaganda ID and this letter came in the mail today @ 09:58 am

la_vation:
Dear Propaganda subscribers,

It’s no secret that with the success of U2.Com over the past four years, Propaganda, the band’s official magazine, has appeared less and less frequently.

The net has become the best way to communicate quickly and directly with U2’s audience.

As a ground breaking band magazine, fore two decades Propaganda offered a unique inside-track on what U2 were up to – exclusive interviews, unseen photos, rare cd releases and, of course, the chance to guarantee purchase of concert tickets!

We have been working on creating that same experience online and this month u2.com is set to relaunch with a ‘Members Only’ area which will give subscribers access to an enormous range of exclusive U2 content.

When launched to the public, subscriptions to U2.com will be $40 p.a. but because you were a subscriber to Propaganda and may have part of your subscription unfulfilled, you may join U2.com for $20 for the next 12 months.

A subscription to this area via your personalized “u2.comIDcard” will bring you immediate online access to what the band are up to.

Of course U2.com will also continue to bring you up to date news of the band, as it does at present on a free subscription basis.

Best wishes and thanks, for your support of Propaganda down the years.

Propaganda and U2.com


Here’s what U2.com “members only” subscribers will receive:

· Priority ticketing for the 2005 tour available for purchase through U2.com.

· A special introductory gift.

· A U2.com email address (eg. steve@u2.com) with a web-based mail service like hotmail.

· Exclusive band stories, features and other online content, including on-the-road reports and diaries when the tour kicks off in the Spring.

· Full length audio and video streams and downloads of new U2 material as well as rare and unseen material from the past.

· Access to all archived U2.com news, including Propaganda features over 20 years.
· New mobile phone content, along with innovative applications like screen savers and digital tools.

· ‘Members Only’ message boards and discussion forums with the revamped Zootopia along with a regular newsletter email to keep you up to speed with the band and site.

· 25% discount on your first purchase from the U2 online store.

I wonder if after your first year's subscription if it will only be 20 bucks a year. 40 a year is alot for poor college students like myself.

Okay, I've often been known to complain that my five-year degree (arts/law) is going to set me back AUD $25 000. After reading that, I shall never complain again :P

What I find really funny is how (in Australia at least) the government keeps whining about how this generation aren't saving enough for their retirement, keep putting off buying houses, and have fewer children - contributing to the 'aging population' effect and causing a massive welfare blowing. Well, duh - OF COURSE we can't save, we're all too busy paying off our university degrees!

Whoah... your debt levels are amazing. Is there any chance you might get a nice big scholarship to help out with the costs? I don't really know what it's like in the US, but this girl I know who emigrated from Hawaii told me it's much easier to get one in America than here... but she was kind of a snob, so I don't know.

Let me have a complain for you: d'you know what's really unfair? That prestigious universities in America can set much higher fees than other ones, which makes it much harder for poor kids to go to a great university. At least in Australia, you pay the same price wherever you go... so it's about how good you are, not how rich daddy is.

haha nice rant! i have been applying for scholarships like crazy, and have gotten one from my school for $3000. What makes me mad is that the scholarships are not dispersed on a need-basis, but more randomly. so those who are loaded up the ass because of mommy and daddy are getting to go for next to nothing, when people like me, who work their asses off, end up paying close to full price. Also, affirmative action plays a big part. many of the minorities in the US come from poor to lower middle class families who can't afford to go to school, but since universities need to "diversify" they give all the minorities the scholarships. i agree that everyone should have a fair shot at getting into a school, and that includes a fair economic shot, but why is it then ok to give other races priority over those who work hard? maybe it's just a US thing...

I really hope the "exclusive" content is worth it... the band (or at least the label) has gotten really money-grabby in the past few years.
