It's astonishing how much content for U2VT I've gotten from Interference. The live setlist parties and stuff were invaluable. U2.com just can't seem to use their imagination. And I think the site is done by people who frankly don't care.

I'd be down with a setlist game ...
Oh, if only I could afford it! I so would.

Perhaps U2.com just needs a better forum. Make this one the official or something. That does sound unappealing, but it could take a leaf out of more successful boards, as they prove so useful.

I'm not entirely sure how a setlist game would work, unless it was just a quiz or something. Perhaps it could be a bonus level in the platformer.

It seems unofficial boards tend to do better, though. Official ones often end up too constrained, at least in my experience. And Zootopia is hell. I wouldn't want them migrating here!

A setlist game could involve fighting with Bono to make him remember the lyrics, and chasing/cornering Larry to make him listen to Pop so he can learn Mofo.

Generally, unofficial things are more fun than the official stuff. I learned that when I was a kid by buying magazines, and I learn it today by posting on U2 message boards.

That would be a good game, go make it now.

I love hyper-moderated official boards that don't allow anything that isn't gushing and positive praise. And then they wonder why every thread dies and people go elsewhere ...

I would if, you know, I had any skills in that department whatsoever!

So, can I show off a photo I'm pleased with? Well, I shall! Here's a Comeng electric multiple unit descending the flyover into platform 10 at Richmond back on 26/03. The Melbourne CBD is in the background.

I'd be disappointed in myself if I didn't post in the Big Bone Lick State Park thread, so here I am.

Gee, I wonder how long I'd last at Zootopia? Might be worth a test sometime.

I've got a limited amount of knowledge with the whole game making thing. Nothing that would really work for something so great as this idea, though.

Also I made this thing like a year ago which I think is pretty dope. It's not for any reason, really. Just for reasons of wonder.

Go there and be brutally honest about ATYCLB.

Oooh, is there a level in that game where you can beat sense into Bono so that TTYW isn't put on the album?

I will, man. Not tonight that, I need sleep. But at least I can sleep in for about twenty minutes tomorrow.

But of course. However, results vary on the consequences. If you do an excellent job, then Spanish Eyes appears on the album instead. However, if you do a poor job, Womanfish does! You really need to get things right.

Done with the Theatre project.

The people in my group better appreciate romanticism.

This'll be awesome. I'm thinking of an early night myself. By that, I mean in bed between 1:30 and 2am.

HA. I would still consider Womanfish preferable to TTYW! It belongs IN THIS ALBUM IN THIS ALBUM IN THIS ALBUM, you know?
