**Wanders into the bar**

**Singing and humming 'The great song of indifference'**

...Baby I can watch whole nations die
And I don't care at all...


...just went through a rather despressing thread in EYKIW...



... I'm really in need of a drink after that...

...if there's a bartender in here...?

U2 demand Bono stop political campaings

Hence singing the "...I can watch whole nations die..."-line...

>>> Walks in and scans around the bar <<<

Hello Hello, anyone home?

To placate me while I'm waiting for the magical date, I put Vertigo on really loud in the car (my car has a great stereo) and I thought, that this would be a great song to in a club with (duh?), but I actually thought of it in context of you gals

I also thought that it would be very cool if those who were waiting until the 22nd or 23rd or whatever would be able to listen to the album at the same time, thus we can share it together. I know, it's hokey, but I'm a closet romantic.
If they release it to iTunes after we get our iPods (for those who are getting them) we can download them, and then play them together with commentary in the Octagon as we go along.
If this appeals to anyone, let me know privately or on this forum. Even one person to share it with would be cool. If that falls through, I'm thinking about taking an hour long drive or so to hear the entire album on the open road. If I drive away from the city there is a lot of open road through the hills of Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia.

sounds like a plan, although probably more practical for those in the states than for me over here.
i havent decided how i'm going to listen
to the album yet. if i was in south africa it would be easy - i'd get in my car and drive along the coast and stop at one of the side parts with my car pointing to the water and then spend the next hour, alone in my car, seat back watching the ocean as i listened to the album. heaven!

here its not so easy - to start with i dont have a car anymore which sucks. and the i'll be at work as well so i'll have to wait a whole day till i can get home and listen to it there but then i'm also bound to be interrupted by my housemates or phone calls or what not. its the one thing i really lack in london - complete and utter privacy which is something i'm craving and need to listen to this album. a nice peacefull setting with no distractions...
i'll have to think of something though...

wonder if i can get to Virginia to get in stars car for that first listen!

I read your posts Digs...

I don't want to post in that thread ... I'll just end up ... and there no point in that...

You're so right - it is indeed a scary thread...

I'll be lying on my couch... with my eyes closed... phones, computers, everything turned off... the volumes as loud as possible (absolutely not caring about what my neighbours think!)... and just enjoying every single second of the record...

Ladies, that Green Card idea is looking better and better isn't it? All of a sudden, I'm almost

I'm willing to wait for you guys if I were able to get it before you, but I wouldn't expect you to hold off. I would even get up / stay up late to accomodate you.

Digsy, I'm headed to Florida on Tuesday, and I may be able to get on periodically, depending on whether I can get internet in my hotel room. I'll be back late Wednesday (after you ladies go to bed)

Merc, are you remaining a virgin too? Are you with us in solidarity? Can you be there for Digsy when she gets weak?

Right about now I'm feeling a lot of for you all in the Octagon.

I'm so very sorry, but there's no way I can wait any longer than November 22nd... I would go crazy knowing that the album was in the stores and I wasn't among the first to get a copy... I'm sorry, but hope you understand!
