Did you see that I enjoyed the Bowie song Screwtape used?
I did. I'm going to download some of that album that Screwtape sent me.

I'm going to try to send you the rest of Station to Station since you liked the title track. Probably later today after I work.

For you, tomorrow morning, that is.

That song and Collapse The Light Into Earth are the two I played over and over when my grandfather died in February. Untitled much moreso than Collapse The Light Into Earth. For whatever reason, Untitled fit how I felt and I latched onto it.

The cover is a photo I took of the sunset on the day Grandpa died. I was listening to Untitled when I took that photo too.

Alright, my final review of Axver's playlist:

It's very good. Despite the metal not being my taste, really on a few songs turned me off, and they did fit well. The flow is great, most of the song choices are good, there's atmosphere, there's theme, there's a concept. It's a complete playlist.

Axver: A-
LemonMelon: B
Screwtape: B
LMP: C
Wow, thanks. I expected you to like it a lot less than that. Maybe I do have a hope of receiving a few votes after all!

Cool, thanks. I should be heading off to bed soon anyway. It's 1am.

Shit, I should write some of my essay before I sleep too. Bleeeehhhh.

Huh, unless my 1am maths is grossly off, you actually create more threads per 1,000 posts than I do.

By the way, totally random question. Why the 26 in your screen name?

PFan, check your e-mails. I just sent you something.

And folks, you may be interested to note that my site is no longer U2VT. We've moved on. We're now U2gigs. We wanted a new URL not dependent on the current tour name. My only qualm is that it lacks a convenient abbreviation! It'll take a while to break my habit of referring to it as U2VT.

I got caught up looking at Faiyum mummy portraits by accident, and now it's nearly 1am and I still have a cold. Probably time I should head off to bed.

Have a good one, guys.

Ooh, that's pretty neat. But I better not get caught up in that myself as I should do some bloody work before bed,. Wow, today's been a total write-off. Well done, Axver.

Have a good one, Bonnie!

Chase Utley is my favorite player on the Philadelphia Phillies (the local baseball team). His jersey number is 26. That's him in my avatar.

Got it and replied.

U2gigs.com is it then?

I expected as much.

Though they really couldn't come up with anything better than Philadelphia Phillies?

Yep (I believe we have U2gigs.net and U2gigs.org too, redirecting to U2gigs.com). All the old U2VT links redirect to their appropriate U2gigs location.

No other change at this stage. We've spoken of redesigning the site a little, especially as I feel some features need to be made more prominent on the homepage, but that would require plenty of effort, mostly on Matthias's behalf, so I don't know if we're going to do that.

Just to have a stab at Ian, it's not as bad as the NZed rugby league team, the New Zealand Kiwis. COME ON.
