Look I get it. I'm a 15-year veteran of this site. I see you're similar. We've both posted less than 1000 times. We're lurkers and infrequent posters.
But I really love the community that's developed here. All prickly and messy and supportive and abusive and knowledgeable and hyoerbolic all mixed together.
I consider myself to be an obsessive mega fan of U2. Yet most of the people who I preume you're berating know and care as much or more than me.

That's what makes this place so special. There is no moderated box mentality of how people must talk. Banana butt jokes are fine. Hating U2 songs or albums is fine. Posting pics of fat Bono is fine. It's a bit of an anarchy but with an incredible and deep U2 knowledge and appreciation.

Try enjoying it instead, as it is, banana jokes and all. Or maybe just get yourself that cuddle.
I get plenty of cuddles, I need a ducking album after 3 months of being teased. What, are the CDs being pressed? Is this 1996?

I don't think I can make it without a leak. I might do something crazy like listen to OneDirection pretending it's the new album.

I agree for the most part. It’s still early of course, but after more than two months of listening to it, I can safely say it’s one of their very best of the 2000’s. Where it ranks among their entire catalogue will take several more years to figure out.

Looks like I missed quite a bit in the last few days. Maybe seems like a a record similar to SOI, but with more of a pop influence. Not sure in,one the sound of that on its face, but I’ve enjoyed all of the songs so far.

Little Things seems like the closest we’ll get to a classic? In the realm of Moment of Surrender for new era U2?

Nonetheless, we are so damn close to this album.

I was trying to get across what you said here! Exactly how feel about this place. I just didn’t say it so well.

Only sad thing is that all my family lives in Ontario while I am the only one that lives in the west coast so I don't get to watch them grow up. I only see my family once maybe twice a year. That part is the most depressing for me. But maybe one day I'll make the move back to Ontario!

Congrats to you and your sister!

The question now is, how do you start the wee fella along on his U2 journey.
May I make a suggestion?
Build him a mobile (is that what you call it in Canada? I mean the dangly thing that hangs above the cot) featuring all the different iterations on Bono.
Crazy teenage punk Bono. Super-mullet Live Aid Bono. Cowboy Bono. Pirate Bono. Fly Bono. Etc etc etc.

But not Yoko Ono Bono. That wouldn't be fair on the kid.
