Do I even want to know what you did to injure yourself?

Head to take the car to get it inspected, and I need it by tomorrow, which meant taking it at 7:15 this morning.

That plus me staying up to 3 AM last night = this. Don't fuck with me today is all I'll say.

I love this comment on the 23 November 2001, Phoenix gig:

Comments: In God's Country is performed for the first time since 9 October 1989. Bono claims that it is the first time it has been performed in 15 years, despite the fact that The Joshua Tree was only 14 years old in 2001!

I was expecting you to say that

The thing is, at that time, I really associated UF with the death of my friend (from cancer), and went as far as writing a long rambling (and thoroughly ignored!) post in Musical Journey about how UF is all about death.

And a couple of days ago my mother told me that a mole she got removed turned out to be melanoma, so she's going to a specialist to get more cut out. There's no particular reason to panic, but that combined with a bunch of other things has me in something of a delicate state at the moment. I mean, I cried half the way to work today, listening to Pop, of all things.

So maybe I'll leave UF alone for a bit longer, or else listen to it when I'm not driving down a freeway.

In Bonospeak, the numbers go 1, 2, 3, 14, 15, 27.....

Axver, I listened to your Achtung Baby tracklisting last night and it is fantastic.

Also, even with 3 of 19 songs being covers, they still got to see Exit. If my time machine dropped me in one of those shows, I wouldn't complain!

All the best for your mother. If it counts for anything, my aunt has had three melanoma lumps cut out and she's absolutely fine. Well, except for the part where she hasn't learnt her lesson about putting on sunblock!

But yeah, I know what you mean. I'll probably forever associate The Cure's Untitled with my Grandpa's death. For whatever reason, that's the one song I latched onto when he died. The lyrics don't even suit! But just the general sound of the song seemed appropriate. I do try to avoid associating songs with negative events though, so that I don't have difficulty listening to them once the moment passes. Doesn't always work, but I try.

Incidentally, I can totally see the UF death theme. Only Promenade poses a problem, really. And I didn't know anything in IAMJ actually went unignored!
