The irony is that the fear is unfounded. U2 is still the biggest band in the world when you take into account both album sales and tour revenue.

But we know what some U2 fans are like. Just take a stroll through EYKIW...

I've never thought it any other time, but as far as Speed of Sound is concerned, I had no IDEA who I was listening to, that's why I was so confused. I knew it could't be U2, but I was convinced it was.

So I'm finished with my first original comic book script. I just have to read it through again tomorrow to make sure everything is right. Who would like to read it? The dialouge and characters really come out. I assure you all it is pretty good.

I think they sound similar, especially on some songs, but hell, they do have their own sort of sound, and occasionally make decent music. I might even have to look at this new album of theirs.

Post it here and we'll all have a go at critiquing / providing feedback?

Exactly. The best band in the world is subjective and Coldplay will never reach the popularity of U2. I wish people would back off and either like Coldplay or move on.

I'll be the judge of that, Screws.

Can you send me a copy please? prisonjake@yahoo.com

Also, are you a DC or Marvel guy?

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.
I don't know what the temperature is, and I don't really care. I just want warmth damn it! It's probably cause I haven't opened any of the blinds in the room yet...

I know. I admit that Coldplay are heavily influenced. The band even said it was heavily influenced by Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill. You can hear it too.

DC FOR GREAT JUSTICE!

(actually I like both, but tend to prefer DC, myself)

And Screwy, I'd not mind having a look either, if you don't mind, of course. uwenlow@gmail.com

Vertigo iTunes ad: Watch as Bono pretends to be a 5 year old pretending to be a rock star, Edge makes it very clear who the ultimate guitar player is by showing us every huge riff he hits, Adam takes Bono on for "SRS MOOZUSHUN" poses and looks, and Larry looks like he's a bored robot!

Hey guys.

Screwtape, I'd like to read your script, especially since I plan on writing/illustrating a comic sometime in the near future.

See, I think it's a bit too warm in my place and I'd like to let some of the cool outside air in.

But if I opened a window, then I couldn't sing along with my music.
