Have been listening to UF in the car lately and pondering track listings...

Wire -> Pride -> ASOH -> UF? Or is it a bit rude to drop people in Wire right off the bat like that...
Ooh, interesting, I hadn't thought of that sequence. And clearly not a bit rude, as Wire's first live performance - right here in Melbourne! - was as the setlist opener. One of only two times a UF song has ever opened a gig (MLK opened the first European show of the UF Tour).

2. She's 15
3. I'm somewhat a mentor figure to her

Now 1 and 2 aren't all that important (although 2 will be for a while yet obviously), but I don't want to compromise on 3 at all.

I'd go with you, but I simply don't have time at the moment, unfortunately. I know a fair few of the people in MUDS though.

DUDE, SHE'S FIFTEEN.

Also, didn't you learn anything about pastor's daughters from the Simpsons?

Clearly I phail at knowledge of things performed live in Melbourne.

They OPENED with MLK?! That sounds like one for the Random Setlist Generator.

I know one guy, who was quite the good debater, but I can't say I liked him too much personally. Too domineering, know-it-all, and convinced the Enlightenment shines out of his arse.

Kate was going to come with me ... shame things went to shit before we got around to that. I suspect the people I'd like to keep in touch with at tutes aren't exactly into debating either. Damn. And Fellow Albino Railfan goes to Vic Uni.

I'm sure you're right, but it was pretty odd to me.

Here's the Melbourne set:

1. Fear Of A Blank Planet
2. What Happens Now?
3. The Sound Of Muzak
4. Lazarus
5. Anesthetize
6. Open Car
7. Dark Matter
8. Hatesong
9. A Smart Kid
10. Blackest Eyes
11. Way Out Of Here
12. Sleep Together

13. Trains
14. Halo

Yeah, they originally wanted to open UF shows with MLK --> UF, what with it being from the new album and all. But the roar of the crowd just drowned out Bono and they switched to 11OTT as the opener from the second European show onwards. Here's the set opened by MLK: U2 Lyon, 1984-10-18, Espace Tony Garnier, Unforgettable Fire Tour - U2 on tour

We totally need to make that random setlist generator!

Also, Ali, U-Wen (is that the first time I've called you by your actual name?), while you're both here, we need to work out a time to do lunch/Phail band meeting. We can Phail by not having instruments or anything.

And we need to work out a final Melburnian Meet-up for U2 3D ...

Well, see, I figure she's fifteen now, which is kinda , but in a few years it'll even out. YES, I am thinking that long-term.

And,

In a little while
I won't be blown by every breeze
Friday night running to Sunday on my knees
That girl, that girl shes mine
Well Ive known her since,
Since she was

A little girl with Spanish eyes
When I saw her first in a pram they pushed her by
Oh my, my how you've grown
Well it's been, its been... a little while
