Just looked over my notes for Live Survivor. Good god, it'd be long.

However, if we do it, I'd want to do it now, before the tour, since the tour will undoubtedly wildly skew votes ...

That is quite weird.


I've got a song I'm thinking of using for DI, and I got it as a free (legal!) download from TripleJ's Unearthed site... it has been released on a single/EP (they don't seem able to decide which it is) as well... that's official enough, right?

Yep, that's good enough. Credit it to the single/EP, even though you sourced it elsewhere.

Back on Prog Island, one song on the Supertracklist was Pure Reason Revolution's Victorious Cupid, which has only been officially released on their MySpace.

Wait a second... THEY'VE been to all their gigs.... does that mean their minds are messed up?

Cool beans... that format for the lists is going to be fun for me... have to do some investigating with which albums everything has come from.

I knew you were going to do that. Larry missed a bunch of early shows too, I think.

So Bono and Edge's minds are the most messed up. On one hand that makes sense...

One thing that will make it shorter is that we will be doing seeding, and I'm tempted to take the Bowie Survivor's format of voting for favourite tracks. Basically, there are sixteen categories. The top six categories send four songs to the finals, the next six send three, and the final four send two.

For seeding the categories, I need to find people actually familiar with all of U2's live eras. I know you've downloaded a fair few bootlegs lately - how familiar would you say you are with U2's live stuff?

Er, I'll worry about how that works when the time comes... *confoozed*

Or maybe I should learn sooner. *L*

There are still large gaps in my bootleg knowledge... still haven't listened to a lot of the ones I have. I can study up a bit if you need someone to help...? And what would I have to do?

I'm sure I read that in U2 by U2... right at the very beginning, he couldn't get out of work or something like that. They obviously got some other drummer to fill in for him...

I hope I'm not getting mixed up between that and how Guggi used to fill in for him in some of those early photo shoots too. Not that I knew the difference when I saw a photo...
