Let's be honest; these clips rarely have anything discernible anyway. It just kicks the hype machine into overdrive.

As it stands, I've just stopped having any expectations of U2's music. I don't even really think of the 1978-90 U2 that I love as being the same band recording under the U2 name today. I expect it all to be calculated, watered-down mundanity. So really, anything beyond that is a pleasant and enjoyable surprise.

Ooh, OK, I see. I'd missed that you'd dropped your classes.

I haven't done any science since grade nine!

You said you wanted to do that shopping thing (that I honestly didn't understand) as a living. Maybe some humanties or art classes would be good to take.
