They say that about wearing purple, too. I choose not to believe it.

I can't chew on ice or ice cream anyway... my teeth hurt

You should've been on the Superthreads when I sent out a whole stack of U2 rarities a few months ago.

Ali probably still has them unlistened in her e-mails ...!

We said NO! and left the room in a hurry.

O communal kitchens, how I miss thee...


So glad I don't live in a hall of residence.

*drops another anvil*

I listened to them all, thank you.

How's that CD going, hmm? Gathering dust? A coaster for your frozen orange juice?






Also... did that other Gotye song work?

It's a devious plot to reward obsessive fans? (If anybody fell for that, they'd have to believe both the best AND the worst of the band at the same time!)

But seriously, Dying Sailor, Jools Holland "Velvet Dress", Wild Irish Rose, Ronnie Drew, he sounds amazing. But albums it's... kinda the same old crap all the time. I'm just a fan of him singing lower than he usually does, I guess.

You listened to them all ... after some prodding!

... and I will have listened to that CD by the time you've finished work tomorrow, so there.

No, WinAmp doesn't want to play it. I suspect if I kicked iTunes into life, it'd just demand a password or something. Booo on protected MP3s!

U2's a horrible judge of their own sound.

I'll agree with you on all of those except Dying Sailor, which just had me in fits of laughter.

Have you heard Treasure? It's easily one of Bono's most passionate vocal performances, just this total stream of consciousness ... so of course, they leave it off War.

Nah, all you'd have to do it authorise your computer. Store > authorise computer then it plays protected files.

I'm convinced that they should not be allowed to select the songs that go on their albums, nor the order of the selected songs. Every single album has at least one terrible error.

Ah, but I'm going to put it on my external hard drive and play it through my Mac, which doesn't have Internet access at the moment. Would it still work?
