And I think it may have suffered a bit from not so many people having heard it, perhaps...? I dunno.


That bass...
Is it a bad sign that I wondered if they had a guest bassist in for that?

Surprise me more often, U2.
I think people voted it off because it isn't very stereotypical U2, really.

Got to love Interference. Rise Up gets kicked because it isn't very stereotypical U2, and now WOS is going to get kicked because it's overly stereotypical U2.

Though WOS deserves to be kicked out. Bono, why did you ruin a perfectly good instrumental?

Nope, still working on Pilate and his wife. I'm not even gonna start writing that one either just yet, just gonna read for it and let it stew in my mind for a while. I'm gonna have to compare the Pilate in Matthew to the other Gospels and Josephus, and explain why Pilate and his wife are depicted the way they are in Matthew.

(The course is on the book of Matthew)

It's a great song up to the last minute, I'd say. Then it just deserves to be taken out the back and shot.

Well, I suppose it's not a matter of you shouldn't use it, but other oils are probably more suited to frying with...

And keep in mind I'm just going on hearsay... I'll leave the Wikipedia searches to someone else

Apparently, for starters, you lose most of the health benefits of olive oil when you heat it up. Also, you can't heat it as hot as other oils before it starts smoking/spontaneously combusting (which is dangerous if you're as vague in the kitchen as I am).

As for using huge amounts of it... well, I used to use it when making tempura in a big wok at home. It worked fine, the stuff fried and it tasted good, but the oil turned GREEN. Again, nothing strictly wrong with that, but it looked rather alarming.

The Terrorism essay with its abundance of sources should be quite a relief after that Pilate essay!

I'm trying to decide whether to start on my Terrorism essay or my Democracy & Violence essay first ...

I've got to do that one day. Green oil...

Hah, I reckon you should submit the same essay for Democracy & Violence and the Terrorism research paper. They do have practically the same question, after all...

Yeah, I'll agree with that. I still think the rest would be better instrumental or with non-preachy bollocksy lyrics, but they're passable until that dreadful last minute. Stop breathing all over the outro, Bono.

Fixed it for you.

The man needs to get some inspiration; his lyrical ability has almost vanished since 2000.

He broke out of the basement, stole that fretless bass from the Graceland album, and recorded Rise Up before they locked him up again.

Then he snuck out for Pop again...
Finally swapped Pop out of my car CD player today... only to replace it with Hasta La Vista Baby

The more I listen to Rise Up, the more I'm sure it's a fretless bass... WHERE DID YOU PUT THAT, Adam????

See, I'll point-blank refuse to cook anything Italian without olive oil. If you're making bolognese sauce or whatever, you've just got to put in olive oil. I probably don't need olive oil for napoli sauce, but I use it anyway.

I also put Worcestershire sauce in just about everything ...
