An orange float? All I can imagine here is a float in a parade painted orange.

AAAAAANNND. I know that a lot of people didn't like that the Killers randomly changed sounds between their first and second album, but I mean, change is good people. You gotta let branching out occur. I wish U2 would realize they don't have to be "The biggest band in the world" where did that fucking mentality even come from anyways. I feel like it's from the moment I heard that phrase dropped, U2 changed. And I do blame it all on flipping Larry and McGuine$$. Why don't they WANT to do something crazy and unexpected? Do tehy really need the money? Really?
Yeah, I just don't get it. I mean, they're such a huge band that they could produce ANYTHING. They could tour and still play to audiences larger than almost any other band on earth could expect EVEN IF THE NEW ALBUM SOLD TEN COPIES. And what would be so terrible if they somehow did become so unpopular that they have to go back to 5,000 seater theatres in some markets? You'd think they're sensible enough to have their money properly invested and never need to worry about a paycheque ever again, and smaller crowds, smaller concerts are far better than stadium shows for all concerned. Except maybe Bono's ego and McGuinne$$'s greed.

Oh, and morning showers are vital. I simply can't function without having been sprayed by hot water.

He's normally a couple of hours later, isn't he?

What did you make of Sweetest Thing when it came out? That's actually the first U2 single I can remember coming out - obviously I knew the others when they came out, but I wasn't aware in the sense of "oh, U2 released this last week!" I wasn't wild about Sweetest Thing, but the Best Of 1980-1990 ruled my 11 year old world.

me either. i mean, zooropa and pop didn't sell well but they were still playing to huuuuuge sold out stadiums, arenas, whatever at the time. zooropa i can see being excused because technically zoo tv/zooropa was like one huge non-stop tour. but pop? no. i love the album, but still. that tour just shows their staying power as a live act. the first leg shows were iffy in regards to ticket sales, but the rest? great.

Oh, I fucking hate sleeping with wet hair. I always shower at least an hour or two before I go to bed, so that it dries.

i was like "why'd they have to go and rerecord it? "

but the b-sides were this was back when we had an oooold comp and i couldn't download mp3s (they'd skip) so i had to listen to stuff online (meaning what i didn't own) using....wait for it...REAL AUDIO. i heard a few old U2 shows that way, and i was stoked to have some of the songs.

i got a better computer (one that could play mp3s) just in time for napster

Exactly. U2 could release acoustic tribal chants of the south Atlantic Ocean islands and they'd still play to packed stadiums.

Have you ever heard of a root beer float? You put rootbeer and a scoop of ice cream in a glass together, and you create deliciousness? This is the same thing, but with Orange soda.

Ok, I hate to play the Tom Petty card, but bear with me. He released an album this year with the band he started out with (they never got signed so they never released the album) but most of that band (Mudcrutch) is IN the Heartbreakers, not to mention the fact that tom Petty plays his solo material on Heartbreaker tours as well, and they didn't play A SINGLE TRACK from Tom's new album.

So U2, I ask you, what would be the harm if it's not a radio friendly best seller? What ? Nothing, absolutely positivifreakinlutely nothing. All of Tom's shows sold out, even though, the album wasn't a HUGE success (not that it did badly either).

And don't even get me started on Arena vs. Stadium. Why anyone would think a stadium show is a good idea is beyond me.
