(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.)
YouTube - U2-People get ready LIVE

Not sure if it's Syracuse. I think so, can't confirm/rumor.

It's pretty much like their last few tours weren't very dedicated at all. Forced, but not even enthusiastic enough anyway.
Hype, hype, hype and nothing to back it up.

Maybe they should've left their name as The Hype.

Yes.

Like one of the demotivators said. "The Edge. How great would he be without idiot bandmates?"

This gives me an idea for a sort of game thread...that'll start some great discussion, mening there'll be a forum war the third day and it'll get locked.

I miss having a cat. But where I live, I can only have fish or birds, or anything else that lives in a tank/cage.

At least my fish seem to be perking up a little from their weird behaviour earlier this week.

And the Edge/Larry thing happens around 3:50 in that clip.

Maybe in the 80s he did.

This is even more true about the last two albums. "It's what happens when God walks in the room." "Punk rock from Venus." "Our best album ever." Bla bla bla. Shut up and let the music speak for you. If it's that good, WE'LL LET YOU KNOW.

I find Bono hilarious in general, whether intentional or unintentional on his part. He cracks me up.

Six zebrafish. Used to be seven. Can't tell you what happened to the seventh. I came home from a short holiday in Queensland and it was gone, with all the logical explanations seemingly wrong.

Whatever happened to the days when creative minds made something and said nothing about it, just waited for the word on whether or not it is good? No hype, none of that crap. No setting you up to get your hopes let down.

HTDAAB I can handle in low dosage. ATYCLB I love for personal reasons.
But musically? Fuck them both except for certain songs.
