Bono isn't a musician.

How you coping in today's particular furnace of Hell?
I succumbed, and I turned on the air conditioning in the one room that has it in the house. I'm now sitting in my awesome lazy chair with laptop, trying to motivate myself to do some work. I haven't succeeded yet.

True, but I'm sure he knows how to play a couple of notes, one at a time.

Their excuse is probably "we've done it this way since 1983, and we aren't about to change it now!"

Nice.
Wittenoom reminds me of Centralia, PA, which has a population of 9 due to the mine fire that has been burning underground there for decades.

I love writing dialogue because no two people really talk the same. You can learn so much about one character just in what they say and how they speak.

I think if I wrote on a more frequent basis, I'd be better at finding the right flow and do some more trial and error with the prose bits, but I'm insanely lazy and undisciplined when it comes to writing.
In all of my writing, I focus on the people aspect. Screwtape can attest to my songwriting, it's very personal. I write about people. I hate nature, so I skip scenery for the most part.

Bono would probably fall over the keyboard if he had to jump from playing to singing. Because you know he couldn't just stand at the keyboard to sing.

I like New Year's Day a lot, but I'm always surprised by how much I love it when I hear it live.

As far as i can remember from when i actually bothered to write, i was shocking with dialogue but could set the landscape rather well.

Perhaps i should write The Unforgettable Fire: The Novel

It wouldn't be cool if Edge didn't do that, though.

I can picture him just side-stepping around my posts, looking at me out of the corner of his eye, like, "omg freeeeeeeeeeeeak!"

Actually, no, I just got behind, then decided "... eh, let's not flamewar it up."

UGH FUCK YOU BONO, WAY TO MAKE IT UNCLEAR IF YOU JUST SNIPPETED SWEETEST THING OR NOT.

I suck at dialogue. I'm great at narration.

Same. I think of myself as a George Lucas-style writer - great with the overall stuff and the landscapes and weird crap, but Phail Collins when it comes to dialogue.

I was never much of a New Year's Day fan. Until i witnessed it live. As soon as that bass rumbled through me i was so fucking sold.
