Yeah, we both played the album and posted our thoughts as it went. I made some post during One about Bono getting all faux-emotional on us that may have just tipped you over the edge.

I was kidding. I'm not going to kill an idealist just because I'm not one. Love, peace, etc.

Plus Mind Games.

Awesome. I also recommend the other gig from the same day - the audio quality is pretty much pristine.

Read this unusually positive news item on the USA this morning...

Commentary: What's right with America? Plenty - CNN.com

...and thought this was interesting:

Quote:
We love our country. World Values Survey found that 77 percent of Americans are very proud of their nationality. That puts us in a first place tie with the Irish. Australia was next and no one else was really even close.

I'd certainly say the Popmart versions are definitive, though. And they were snippetry heaven.

Mark Chapman's the bloke who shot Lennon.
Ah, that's right. He's got such a boring, ordinary name, I keep forgetting...

I remember now, that people were surprised by Vertigo Discotheque...? I guess they feel they have some sort of obligation to play songs from the most recent tour...
*hopes this means Stuck won't be in the next one*

Well, I can be a postwhore at times.
When my stone age dial up is willing to be at least slightly cooperative, anyway.

What happened to her anyway? I'm guessing she must have just passed out!

Wow, 11 O'Clock frickin rocks.
Hell yes. 11OTT is the reason I'm posting here and run U2gigs and all that stuff.

(Well, so are Bad and Gone. Not sure which song deserves the most credit, really.)

See, those of us from elsewhere think that Australians (and Americans even moreso) need to get the fuck over themselves. Especially, in Australia's case, when it comes to sport. This country has an unjustifiably large sporting ego.
