Well, it was supposed to be clearly labelled so that they couldn't possibly wander into troublesome territory. That was the idea, anyway, because I have totally had my kids wander into some of those places when looking for their schoolwork.

DID I MISS SOMETHING IN THIS FANDOM.
Oh, um, sorry. Hi ladies. I was here a year or so ago, disappeared to join the crazy Radiohead fans, then came back to make sure U2 was okay cuz' I saw them live and then they disappeared off the radar. D:
I'll slip back out in a bit! ...Maybe...

HA!!! I guess maybe you did miss something.

Here it is. (It doesn't really need to be spoilered I don't think, but eh, I will anyway)

 


I found it in a stack of magazine clippings a couple/few(?...can't remember when) years ago.

Welcome back.

Mother of god.
Thanks a bunch! Is there any context that will help me better understand why the heck that photo was taken and released?
I will take this as a sign that I needed to come back and stay lol.

It was taken by an artist/photographer. I'll post the full page from the magazine for you to help with the context. It's funny because we'd always seen this pic of him taking Bono's pic, and used to joke about finding that guy. I even captioned the pic "somebody find that guy".

Then I was flipping thru some magazine clippings and found it.

i remember your user name r_r time 2 b lured back


u know, comet, when i first saw that article when you posted it last year or so with it's set of several photos together.... i didn't even realize what going on there..... the fairly distinct tonal differences as i glanced quickly at it b4 i read the article...... didn't register as that!

It wasn't till i think someone made some coment and i was like '.....wait....what'?!

then i went back to look! i was like duh......

Aww, yay! Glad I'm remembered.
I wouldn't have made the connection with the pic without reading the article twice and someone still pointing it out to me. The lighting makes it look less like his skin tone, I dunno.
