I don't think I was really aware of it at the time, but I'd been having a pretty shitty time through '05 and '06, in an understated, non-dramatic sort of way. Those shows were a revelation... and kind of a turning point. And last year I had my trip, which I'd been planning for a year, as well... I paid for the plane ticket the same week of the concerts here. Thank god for birthday money or I'd never have survived November '06, financially speaking!

And I found my way back to the blue crack, too

Whatever it was, I think things started getting better after the shows.


..... *doesn't have the Boston DVD yet*
Every time I see it in a shop it's like $55, and I can never quite justify spending that much at the time....

Mind you, if I'm paying $70 to see a band I'd never heard of a month ago, maybe I should reassess that.

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!

I tend to downplay the fact I saw 10 shows and run U2VT. My resume says that I run a website with over 7,000 daily visitors, but does not mention what the website is about! I fear "a U2 setlist archive" would put potential employers off!

Holy god! I didn't know they were even capable of that.

Luckily, I'm actually pretty good pals with most of the magpies back on my street in my hometown. At least one large family comes to our backyard everyday and we feed them catfood. They've done this for a few years now, and I haven't been swooped in that area once since.

I was basically thinking "What, people actually think this is real?!?!"

Yep. "Some Europeans rocked up. The Aborigines caught diseases off them. They tried to protect their land but got shot. Now let's learn the names of the earliest Governors!"

I just opened the Lichtenstein thread, 'cause I never actually read the whole thing (). But then I also opened that Drugs thread, since it was right next to it, and now I'm reading that instead. What a great time that was in EYKIW, no matter how brief.

That's pretty cool! I love magpies, and birds in general... dad gave me a book about the magpie recently and it's really interesting. I saw two of them in C'maine doing the face-off thing an inch apart, warbling in each others' faces on some invisible territorial boundary line...

I never saw any magpies in our back yard here until a week ago! I was so happy to see them
I will always be impressed by a creature than can HEAR WORMS MOVING UNDERGROUND, especially while being so close to a major road.

There's a difference though - $55 for a DVD is a ripoff, while $70 for a gig isn't! Hell, I could just burn the Boston DVD for you if you want.

And if I can crack any copy protection it's likely to have ...

I personally don't and haven't really eaten much weird stuff - the weirdest you'll get is probably some extremelly spicy beef, or similar.

Actually for everyone here, I'd recommend getting Szechuan cold sliced beef in chilli. It's absolutely amazingly awesome.

Although I have eaten pigeons, snake, snails and frogs. But French people eat them anyway, so

Absolutely! It was quite easily the single greatest way for me to get over the stress of final high school exams and the grief of leaving all my friends.

You and the rest of us! I still just cannot believe that thing went on as long as it did. Just ... wow.

I've learnt my lesson: however gullible I expect people to be, they are 10x moreso!
