I don't like either version of the Sweetest Thing. But much prefer the 80s one.

I feel like I could get diabetes from how sweet the re-recorded one is.

U2 never ever needs to worry about pulling a live crowd. Sure, a few shit albums and they would probably have to tone things down to arenas, but they could still tour very profitably to very enthusiastic audiences.

Yeah, it's a spider in New Zealand too. Don't know what the fuck Ian's doing calling it a "Coke float".

I've never heard it called that, Mr I've-Lived-In-Australia-Over-Half-My-Life.

I've heard it discussed about 5 times in my life though.

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.
Exactly! When you're a well-established act, the recent album is almost an irrelevancy in terms of pulling a crowd. Sure, it's nice when your new material is just as eagerly anticipated as the old classics, but if it doesn't happen, so fucking what? Go out there and play the music you love.

And I know Bono's said that it's nice to have 50,000 people screaming your name, but come the fuck on. Whether it's 7,000 a night or 50,000 a night, that's still got to feel pretty damn good either way.

OH GOD BANNER AD! THAT'S EVIL!

It's one of those things where you have to do something to "win" and this time you have to melt this ADORABLE snowman with a hair dryer. THIS SNOWMAN IS SO CUTE! and the advertisement says "This winter no snowman is safe" what the hell. What did the snowmen do to this company?

I've only ever had a spider in New Zealand, actually.

Egomaniac.



So's Bono.

Far less poisonous than Australian ones, right?
