ummm...why is there a red " V " on Martin's shirt? I'm just curious....anybody know.........?




I know I'm going to regret this. But why is it humourous when Coldplay uses confetti and not your beloved U2 during City of Blinding Lights?


Oh, and the "V" may suggest Viva La Vida, the album title or possibly be in the same font as the album cover. I'm sure NO ONE questioned why Adam was wearing a facemask during Popmart.

Guys, I think U2 invented changing their look for every tour, too!!

Well, isn't it obvious? He's promoting the single "Vertigo," not Coldplay's new album, "Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends."

Thank you for pointing out my minor typo, by the way.

oh ok, thanks

BoMac, there's just something about the song "Viva la Vida" in conjunction with confetti that amuses me...I really don't know what it is...and I had never seen Coldplay use confetti before until then...maybe they have used it before...I don't know

and you're welcome GG

Rob, don't you think Viva La Vida is better than ATYCLB or HTDAAB? I think so.

It's not as good as Bomb, but better than ATYCLB, IMO. Of course, I don't really hold ATYCLB in all that high esteem.

Viva would be pretty brilliant if Coldplay had a great singer/lyricist at the mic, but they don't. So, for now, I'll just settle on "cracking".

As a whole, it's better than both.

Although there are some songs that are better than anything on Vida.

ElMel, have you ever considered doing a cartoon on all the U2/Coldplay comparisons? I think it would be absolutely cracking!

You should do it!!

It's not a bad idea. I couldn't do any cartooning for a week, but now that my computer is stable again, it's a possibility.

I can have Chris Martin steal Bono's identity or something. Then, when no one can tell them apart, Bono can ask Chrissy if he has a preoccupation with death in his songwriting, and he'll run out of the room crying.
