The only statistic I'm interested in is the time at which I will walk in my door.

Rad. My flight to Dublin was 1st class, and I stayed up for the whole thing. Cashews, not-crappy movies, warm towels, and ice cream that had the fudge on the bottom so you could control its distribution.

In comparison, my flight to London a week later was like being shoved into a tin can (still full of God knows what) and shot with a rubber band onto a target somewhere in England. Fuuuuck.

Did you fly Ryan Air, by any chance?

Also, glad to have you back, Cori.

Imagine if they broke up with Endgame as their last ever song

Endgame is just that - Endgame

Plenty. The deluxe remasters of Fables... and ...Pageant had a bonus disc filled with demos for those albums.

What about the post-IRS era (which is the one I'm more curious about)?

A couple of songs Stipe did without the band while the band was still around

1 giant leap - the way you dream / god/unity (michael stipe, tim booth, asha bhosle) - YouTube

1 Giant Leap - I Have Seen Trouble [Feat. Aluta & Michael Stipe] - YouTube

As tired, and worn down Stipe might have sounded (his vocals are really straining), there was still a quality to his voice in those songs, and both those songs were better than anything R.E.M put out since 2000

You would think with this split the band and the members is pretty much finished (ie no solo/ side projects)

A few individual demo tracks from those years have been released officially, but no groups of songs like those found in the FOTR and LRP anniversary reissues. Demos from Green and Out Of Time and a handful of songs from Up are floating around in bootleg land.
