mmm...chinese
The fact they even make it matter with regards to their business practices marks them as fundies to anybody from down here in Heathenstralia! Sure, believe whatever you like; what the fuck does that have to do with fast food chicken?

If I had the cash on me, I'd travel to Dublin to see U2 in a heartbeat. God knows I have the time. That's something not to be missed.

I'm genuinely surprised that they keep skipping Tennessee all the time. You'd think they'd do at least one of Memphis or Nashville. It will be interesting to see just how much they tour in the US this time around, given the declining US economy and the increased profitability of other global markets, including a good number they've never played.
:fuckyeah:

yeah, it is surprising. i can't believe how seldom they play the state, and there's three big cities here! and memphis is the biggest, so they should come here. which makes it seem really silly that it's bigger than nashville, considering how many people i have to travel to nashville to see who don't come here!

One thing I think we really need to do is discourage texts in favour of audio. After all, texting actually costs more to do than the audio! It should just be a back-up if the audio quality is totally unlistenable.

They're fundies too? What's with the fundie chains having the sexually suggestive names? Repressed desires?

I think it has to do with the fact these places don't get many cool acts. Like here in Omaha we never got that many interesting artists. Then when we started getting bigger acts everyone was so thankful for the people that came. When Roger Waters came he was so blown away. He even got a little teary for the love Omaha gave him.

yeah, like only allow texts as a back-up or addition to the audio feed. it could help with identifying snippets, too, and then we'd get to hear the songs too.

I did call it Chick Filler out loud.

See, I'd only do GA. Fuck seats. The GA experience for U2 is a bit of a pain, you're right there, but I'd rather do that than have seats, especially in a huge fucking nasty stadium.
