You'd almost think they were being forced to buy it, wouldn't you?

Hello fellow drinkers!

Another snowy day for me, and another day off work!

No one put a gun to my head... Hey it is what it is. Everything will show up as a CD single or a download sooner or later, so if you don't want to buy the full CD now just be patient and everything will show up.

And Thora...the snow is great!! It's frosty a little south of you, but no snow here in California.

It's very beautiful, but the roads are disastrous. I'm hoping that it clears up soon, because I haven't been able to drive since Saturday!



You're not thrilled about going to CA?

No because it's interrupting my Christmas Break

We have to go to the bowl game with the football team, it's requirement for Marching band, and break starts on the 15th, and they want us in San Diego on the 17th

WTF?! Two days later?

That's annoying. But at least the weather should be nice!

So if we refuse to buy it, does that make it okay?

Is it okay that U2 are still trying to rip off the fans by releasing this unnecessary collection? "It is not for you! It is for the casual fan!" you say? Then why are they including 2 new tracks? Why are they including a previously unreleased dvd? Seems like a very calculated move to rope in new fans as well as rip off the old ones.

It's still a cheap money grabbing move, whether we buy it or not.

U2Man, are you being sarcastic or are you actually agreeing with my post? I can never tell with you these days.

I don't know about you, but Paul McGuinness and John Sampson showed up at my place several days ago. McGuinness verbally berated me in a threatening manner, while Sampson glared at me, looking on sternly, his body language implying that he was ready to get physical if need be. I didn't even have to go to a store, I bought U218 from them on the spot. Then they peacefully left, muttering that I had fulfilled my contract as a U2 fan.

Okay, you seem to be missing the point here - you are NOT obligated to buy it! I really don't get how that's a difficult concept. If it offends you, then you were absolutely right to return it.

No. YOU are missing the point here. I know I'm not obligated to buy it. Doesn't mean it is NOT a cheap money making move by U2 Corporation. You and the other U2 apologists here seem to be ignoring the fact that this was a very calculated move by this band to sell the same music once again.

You know what, I'm gonna let it go. Cos there's no point in arguing about this. See you guys later.

I have to agree that I think the album alone is a bit ridiculous, but as I already said, I AM going to buy the album for the DVD and book and give the album to my mom for Christmas, because she loves compilation cds
