And I keep meaning to go and read the parties for the shows I was at.

Ax was sending me the set via email at work for Lichtenstein... I kept chuckling away to myself and deflecting questions from my colleagues... they just wouldn't understand...
Hehe.

Most of the guys I work with think I'm crazying for seeing U2 7 times in America, and then even just twice in Australia.

C'mon!, Nobody understands the U2 freak within!....embrace the U2 Freak!

There's a whole forum about the Vertigo Tour, I think... it's been locked but it should be still up here somewhere.

*goes hunting*

The people at work thought I was mad for going to both Melbourne shows... then I told them about people I knew who saw all the Australian shows and then some overseas... There's fans, and then there's FANS.

And then the freaks, as you say...

Then when I came back to work after the concert weekend, and they all asked me how it was... I was on such a high for at least a week afterwards.

*nostalgia*

Man, having a real life kinda sucks.
You and Ali really need to read the Liechtenstein stuff. What a thread ...!

I was on a high till the end of the tour I think. 2006 for me was a mostly wasted, and bad year for me. It's a bit of a long story. But U2 topped off a fucking fantastic ending to the year.

I wish I could go back, just great times, I can't wait for them to come back.

and Welcome back Ax!

The last Hawaii setlist party is right at the bottom of page 3 in the General Discussion area of the Vertigo Tour Central forum...

http://forum.interference.com/forumd...0&pagenumber=3

I anticipate much searching through there!

But after primary, this just didn't seem important to our school. We didn't learn much about the actual history of what occurred, bar perhaps a short discussion during a Society lesson.
Wow, that sounds like it would've at least been decent. I actually did more on the Aborigines in New Zealand than in Australia! In about standard two or three (when I was eight or nine), a traditional Aboriginal dance troupe or something along those lines toured New Zealand and visited my school. So we saw their show and did various activities related to the culture. I was actually more conscious of the existence of the Aborigines in New Zealand than I was in Australia. Unbe-fucking-lievable, I know.

Why do birds hate me so?
I'm sorry, but ! Could be worse - I remember reading about a guy on my native Kapiti Coast who was just riding his bike down the road when a magpie attacked him and ripped his nose off.

I read that when I was about eight and I've been wary of magpies ever since.

All I learned about them in high school was how they'd been subjugated. Nothing really about their culture, lifestyle, anything.

And man, the Liechtenstein stuff, I laughed so hard when I first opened the thread after it'd been locked. I still can't believe people actually fell for it.

As I was sending it, I was wondering what you made of my little comments along the way to everybody else, all of whom were there, like about how the next song is "Flower Child - they've simply got to realise this is fake now!"

And you people think that Asian, Aboriginal and African people eat weird stuff...
