A decade of Interference

Hoooooly shit I've been on Interference a decade as of today. What the hell have I done with my life?

133,703 posts. Superthreads. Desert Island tournaments. Survivors. Setlist parties. You know, I've been involved in plenty of flamewars, disputes, and fallings out in my time here, but just quietly, I think this community is pretty great and has a lot of amazing people. You've left a mark.

I joined this site a sixteen year old obnoxious fanlad who would sneak on in the high school library to post about how great U2 are while listening to almost nothing but U2. Now I'm a twenty-six year old obnoxious cynic who hopes nobody at work asks him what that light blue tab is while he's posting about how great bands other than U2 are while listening to almost nothing by U2. I've changed a lot since I showed up in this joint and it's changed a lot too, but it's been my online home. I'm glad the blue's never changed. I remember when I signed up here, there were a bunch of posters who were so knowledgeable about U2; I looked up to them and thought I'd never be as well known amongst the fan community as they are. I hung on their every word. Then I became the setlist guy.

I'm getting sentimental. I'll stop. Thanks for the memories and the good times, everybody, and I look forward to another decade with you nutters.

cheers to one of the best.

Aside from the time you created my alter, and your like for metal, it's been great.

I've had the pleasure of meeting the great man, and I can assure anyone wondering, he's real.

Haha, cheers man. "C0BL_04" was funny times. One of these days I'll find a metal album you like...

If you didn't join and become comfortable within the interference community Ax, I wonder if u2gigs would even exist?!

I passed my 10 years a few months ago without realising, with a post count that pales in comparison.

Still nothing excites me more than the prospect of a new U2 album/tour/survivor comp, which is the primary reason I still stick around (even though I haven't seen Interference Blue for the best part of 3 years.

Matthias started the website in 2001 as elevation-tour.com; I joined just before the Vertigo Tour began. I sent him a big list of corrections and additions and I think my reputation on Interference preceded me, because after a bit of an e-mail discussion I became part of the team. I'm sure the site would still be chugging along without me, but my feature articles back in the day and pushing it hard on Interference and Twitter probably helped its profile.

Funnily enough, I'm really not at all fussed about whether or not U2 release another album. Might change my tune if a new album becomes reality, but I feel like my tastes and what U2 are likely to do have long since diverged, and I've already got the old stuff to cherish. Now if they announced a 30th anniversary The Unforgettable Fire Tour next year, I'll probably post so much excited bullshit that the forum's servers will melt down.

Hmm, apparently I hit 10 years last November. That's depressing.

I hit it 2 years ago Feb. Scary to think of how much time I've spent here.

Here's to 10 more Axver, in that time we should get 2 mediocre U2 albums.
