Yeah, but then they won't qualify for two different years at the Grammies and they won't maximise Thanksgiving/Christmas sales.

Have a good one!

PhD is just a good excuse to write a lot of shit about history.

Plus I kind of need one to be employed as an academic.

yeah, i was gonna say the same thing, but i figured i might as well just quote you. surely everyone can see the correlation. in the beginning it was just a fluke i'm sure, but now? purely stupid marketing. let's sit on an album, drag it out, just so it'll be out for christmas. utterly ridiculous.

the only good thing about it, the ONLY!! good thing about it, is my main band dd put out their album a while back and are finaly (!!!!!) touring for it. so, i've seen them once already. i might even get to see them on their third leg by the time the new album comes out if not though, it's unlikely i'd have to decide between seeing the two bands, since it's doubtful U2 will tour anywhere near me on the first leg. this won't be the popmart tour again

Yeah, I'm sure that if they finished the album in, say, January, they wouldn't sit on it through to November, but because it's June, they can just drag out the process, do some promo gigs, and live like it's the eighties and efficient distribution networks don't exist. Ugh. And then there's Bono's blather about the test of an album being whether it lasts through two Christmases. No, it's not. I've never heard anyone but you use that standard, Bono.

Heh, I'm just wondering if U2 will even remember this part of the world exists ...

k, so speaking of college, i was (finally) gonna go back (again) in the spring. yes, as in january. i could register for the autumn semester if i wanted, but it's just cutting it too close, to be advised and everything.

anyway, the main reason i've decided to wait was because my mom's starting her science classes in the spring, and she's going to take astronomy. i'd tried taking chemistry last year, and...wow. high school chemistry and college chemistry are nothing alike if i take astronomy though, i'd need to take physics

i know! they're just so ridiculous about the whole thing. i try not to focus on it, because it just ticks me off. i just try to sit back and wait for the next album, which is why i don't get into the whole "omg give me leaked track plz" stuff.

Why did I think you'd already gone back?

But eek, none of those subjects sound at all up my alley.
