Yeah, I've even spotted him smiling in some eighties bootleg DVDs. But he obviously thought Popmart was the stupidest thing ever, and it's almost like he's never forgiven the band.

It was funny watching U2 3D and noting just how much more into drumming Bono was than Larry. Sure, Bono sucked, but at least he brought the passion.

Fuck, I wouldn't like it if Manny went to the NL East. The Phightin's are struggling enough as it is.
I love Manny! He can't leave the BoSox! Hell, I'd change team loyalties if he left...

BTW, saw the Phillies won last night. Way to go!

People Get Ready, Joshua Tree Tour, (I think) Syracuse. Bono starts playing guitar for the first two minutes and gives up, giving his guitar to a fan, who (shockingly) has never played guitar before. He goes off to teach her the chords (yes, Bono teaching chords), and he instructs Edge to start singing. Edge sings "People get ready ... c'mon!" to try to get the crowd to help him out. Larry finds this funny and laughs heartily.

I was shocked. SHOCKED!

I think hell would freeze over if he smiled in a photo with a fan.
Hell will also freeze over if he starts to play something interesting ...

I find it genuinely troubling that he thinks 6/8 is an unusual time signature.

Utley may be breaking out of his slump. A couple more weeks of that shit and I was changing my avatar.

Seems to make a lot of sense.

And about U2 3D, yes, Bono did seem more into it than Larry did. It was quite strange, given, ya know, it's Larry's JOB to drum.

He smiled a lot during the first three tours. He brought the passion then.

... holy shit, I've watched that DVD a couple of times and never noticed that. I may just have to go rummaging through my bootlegs now.

(Honestly, Syracuse is one of my least favourite JT Tour gigs. I find the set pretty dull in comparison to most other bootlegs. Though it does have the WTFery of Bono snippeting Yes in Bad.)

So he likes being bland and looking like he'd rather be doing anything else right now?

He hates Passengers, too. It was "self-indulgent".

I wish I had a camera right now. Both of these cats are curled up asleep together.

Wonder if he hates his own drumming.

U2 in general don't seem terribly committed or dedicated to their job. And I know some people on EYKIW would like to go on about how we are mere fans and they are artists who can choose when and how they deliver music from their grand pedestal in the sky, bla bla bla, but at the end of the day, they're making a career out of music and we're the ones enabling them to do that. So I think it's only fair for them to actually do their job to a decent standard.

I wonder if he's even really thought about music much. I bet the existence of time signatures like 13/16 would come as a huge shock to him.
