Well of course. I wasn't being serious ... except for the part where PFan's designing music for baseball, in which case 4th Of July is about 20,000 times more upbeat than what's happening on the field.

Being serious would have required too much effort.

See you later!

Quiet night, huh.

It feels like the Maj. and Daniel and such haven't been here in ages.

You're not asleep at 11, are you?

11 would be far too early by my standards.

And we go off daylight saving tonight so I get an extra hour out of the day.

Excellence.

How'd the last eight hours without me go?

It ended up going far too quiet. And the large font stopped.

Your mention of 11 for whatever reason has made me listen to 11 O'clock Tick Tock. 5 June 1983.

Fuck I miss when U2 were good. Because this owns so much.

This very performance got me into U2 on a serious level.

In 2002, I got the Best Of 1990-2000. Absolutely fell in love with Gone. One of my mother's friends had old cassette copies of UABRS and RAH, which they gave to me.

11 O'clock Tick Tock on UABRS rocked my 15 year old world.

I already loved Bad from when I bought the Best Of 1980-1990 when I was eleven, but the performance on RAH affected me more than any music I had heard up to that point (Anathema's Judgement album is now the benchmark for music affecting me and will probably never be surpassed).

I'm thinking I will have to divide it into three packs, as the band's catalogue can be somewhat neatly divided into three eras.

As an addendum, this is why my avatar is Edge at Red Rocks playing 11OTT.

Also, in that above post, I meant to say on video, not cassette. My mind is elsewhere right now. Fuck you, university essays.

But anyway, my UABRS video barely plays around 11OTT as I repeated it to death.

It never gets old either.

Fuck, this is just like the first time I heard it, really.
