Cedric was my albino frog. I loved him soooo much, but one day when I was cleaning his tank, I accidentally put him in the hot water and cleaned his bowl with the cool water by mistake, and...he died :sad;

I wasn't sure if it was strictly a sound-quality thing, or whether U2 just play awesome shows for home and home-away-from-home crowds...

Aw, that's so sad!

I killed my pet mouse by not noticing that her water bottle thing had sprung a leak... *guilt*

I'd say a bit of both. Certainly being soundboard or like-soundboard quality helps a lot, but it's not a secret that often the best gigs of any American leg are in Boston.

The band also seem to bring the house down in Glasgow. The two UF Tour shows there in November 1984 are both absolutely scorching on the bootleg, even if the sound quality leaves something to be desired. The 7 November 1984 show has an especially energetic 11OTT to open.

It's not my fault you slowcoaches can't keep up.

Though for now, I'm going to do the dishes. Not too much to do today, hurrah. Keep the thread ticking over, folks.

Makes sense...

*makes more notes*
At least one of the Glasgow ZooTV shows is on my list too, something about Edge's birthday and Lost Highway...

Haha. One good thing about share houses, I don't have to do all the dishes myself. On the other hand, my housemates probably use a lot more dishes than I would on my own. But that might be because they tend to cook real food, with ve-ge-ta-bles and other strange things.

I dunno whose turn it is to wash up today, but I'm pretty sure it's not me

The Chicago TUF concert. Though I think I actually downloaded this one before, and wasn't all that crazy about it, but Ax says it's great so hopefully not

You have an interference shirt

I don't think I've ever heard a UF bootleg... I did download that Chicago one a while ago, but not listened to it yet. Should probably do that today...

Yeah. There used to be a link to Interference's cafepress.com store up the top somewhere, I guess it's still going.
