That's ok zooshadow, I speak like someone from that movie "Fargo" (so hideous...I must move and lose this accent) but I've had lots of practice at talking to people from online. It'll be good fun.

Hey, I've survived two whole days! Consider it a warm-up for after this weekend. Thank God for Radiohead, Doves, Elbow and PJ Harvey.

nah. I have only lived here 5 years. I'm just a terrible mimic. Even if I speak to someone with a different accent for a while I'll start imitating them without even realizing it.

Ya know this isn't as hard as I thought it would be to do....
But then again this is only day 3.
Unfortunately I find that I have U2 songs in my head....and I can't really escape my own brain (yes I have one )
Did you know that music on the radio really sucks?

I do that too. I'm sure people think I'm making fun of them!! I still have a little bit of my southern accent, though, even though I've been in DC for over a year. It gets 10,000x worse when I talk to my dad on the phone.

you guys call THIS a challenge?



I did the same thing for TWO YEARS in high school.


Kinda sucked, too. I suffered from U2 withdrawal.

Explains why i'm on U2 overload 24/7 now.

Hmmm good luck with that! There was a time when i didn't listen to U2 for like a year (or even more) when i was in my "Beatles" fase.

Though now, i don't think i can do it. A week, two maybe, but anything more is probably unlikely!

How do you prove you haven't been listening? Will those of you who compete just trust each other?

I managed to embarrass myself last night, I walked into a pub with my sis and her friend to c a gig and as we walked in I heard the start of elevation and it took me a second to realise I was like fuck and glanced at my sis (she knows I am doing the no U2) I then proceed to dart out of the pub and run through the empty shopping centre, who has a pub in a shopping centre?

They both thought I was nuts

This is the nuter signing off

When Love Came to Town

My first close call was yesterday as I was leaving work. In the car flipping through the radio stations..... I hear... I did what I did before ..... and I quickly pressed the next preset button.
Really though since it was B.B. singing that line I haven't heard Bono is several days.

So...

How is everyone going? I still havent listened to U2 since the moment I posted. I am finding if I focus on a particular band (Radiohead), I dont think about it so much! My way of coping...

k, nuter aka zooshadow...I began my fast a little late due to my weekend of U2ey fun. So far so good. I'm getting all kinds of knowledge and culture by listening to public radio in the car rather than U2 tunes (or music radio). Soon I will know all about current events and world news.

And while at work Radiohead, Doves, Elbow, and Jeff Buckley are keeping me company.

Still here. I don't think I've ever gone longer than a week without U2. So we'll see.....
I've been on the NPR in the car also.

May go buy some Bob Marley at lunch today. Oh and my son even took notice and said "You don't listen to U2 any more?" I think he has grown tired of the RHCP.

I've been listening to a lot of my mix discs that don't have U2 on them.

The morning radio is okay....the DJs are tolerable ....

Afternoon radio sux thou....the classic rock station plays Van Halen all the time (I like em and all but not that much), the modern rock station plays Cr**d, the top 40 station plays Pink, the "lite" station plays Celine Dion, the country station plays a lot of country, the oldies station plays songs I've only heard in commercials , The other top 40 station plays Nelly and Eminem.....

I miss U2
