I may just go and drum for a while.
Cold? COLD? It's FANTASTIC outside. So fresh and crisp and nice. When I went out at 9:30, the Bureau was recording the temperature up my end of town as 6.7, with the apparent temperature actually down at 4.6. Now it's 11.2 (9.8 apparent). Delightful. I love autumn.

I think if Coldplay did a video where they just stood still, people here would think they were trying to be U2.

Dude, I'm Asian. Where I come from, 20 degrees is considered freezing. People go up to the hills (which have a temperature of about 20, 22 degrees) dressed like people are now, only with more padding and insulation.

Nah, people'd probably start accuse them of trying to be Oasis.

That being said, the ad actually looks pretty good. And the music's not bad either (I think)

I don't think Coldplay sounds anything like U2. It is a knee jerk reaction to a deep seeded fear that U2 isn't the best band or biggest band in the world. Ever since Bono said U2 were trying to be the biggest band in the world, this fear has been around. If not Coldplay, a different band. The U2 fandom has a great fear that brings out jealousy and anger. You can hate Coldplay but to say they are ripping off U2 is pathetic and sad. I'm sorry but that is what I believe.

It is so sad how true that is.

Dude, you were born in BRITAIN. Don't use your race as a cop-out here.

Also, checking the Moorabbin Airport station (I think you said that's the one closest to you in a previous thread?), it's actually been warmer down your way this morning than here. I'm still waiting for it to get cold enough to justify getting out the heater. I'm sitting around in t-shirt and trousers now.

Just watched the Vertigo iTunes ad, and there's some serious

WE R SRS RAWK STARZ

happening there. Especially Adam and Bono.

Funny thing is, that ad's what got me into U2 in the first place!
