I think the railway ones I know are on closed lines. Others are actually road tunnels on lightly used rural routes ...

Yep. Those songs that haven't substantially changed from tour to tour, e.g. Pride, would just contest it as the live song in general. I did write up a masterlist and a format for it, should we go ahead with it ... it's fairly long and involved! Damn U2 having such a long history!

The format I devised is that it would go album by album, with those songs not played live excluded. For those songs with substantially different live versions, they would have preliminary rounds prior to the tournament to find the version that would contest the album, e.g. you would have a Bullet round with the JT/Lovetown, ZooTV, Popmart, Elevation, and Vertigo versions facing off, with the winner, say ZooTV Bullet, being the one that is included in the JT rounds.

sounds interesting

OK, my fish are starting to seriously worry me. I gave their tank a fucking good clean last night. When I cleaned it, I discovered it was the dirtiest it had ever been, which explained why for a couple of days they'd spent most of their time hiding behind their favourite log at the back. But when I put them back into the clean tank, they went straight back to their log rather than swimming around like they normally do. I thought I'd give them some time to get used to the new clean tank, but they stayed lurking, only willing to come out when I fed them, and even then only for a short while.

Now I just went into the kitchen and they're lazily hanging around on the bottom of the tank ... they are still moving fast like normal when they do move, but they've g ot me worried. I didn't do anything differently with the cleaning, it's all how it normally is, so I'm totally baffled. But I'm thinking I should maybe empty the current water and put in some new stuff ...?

You coming up with a long involved analysis of something? Nevar....



Oh, so now you're glad their setlists are relatively static and there are plenty of songs they've never played live and some of their live versions never change?

... How long have you been using the same water in there?? Do you have one of those bubbly filter things?

I can understand that But some of the live versions I've heard on bootlegs are amazing, I can only imagine how awesome it would have been to have been there.

True

But can you imagine how messy our minds would be if we'd attended every U2 gig since day 1

Psh, rotating sets doesn't mean they have to keep changing up HOW they play each song.

And actually, I kind of fear that with an album like UF, the amount of songs not played live from it will make its round fairly insubstantial.

The water's entirely fresh, from yesterday. Yeah, I've got a filter, though it doesn't seem to work as well as it used to. I've had it for over a year, and although I've constantly replaced the removable filter part inside it, I'm wondering if maybe the non-replaceable filtration mechanism is getting old and just not doing its job as well as it should be.

I just put some more water conditioner stuff in the tank ... going to leave it for a few minutes then check to see what the fish are doing.

Might be worth a try to replace the filter... hope they're okay!

Yeah ... I'll go to the petshop soon, maybe even tomorrow if they keep worrying me. I just checked on them and they were swimming around much more, not lying on the bottom looking a bit sluggish. They seemed like their normal selves, except they curiously would not leave the lower half of the tank. Not one of them went to the upper half.
