It's a future cartoon idea I have. Here's the plot outline:

Quote:
Larry stays behind on his laptop while the rest of the band goes to see a movie about a potato voiced by Bill Murray who gets rolled down a hill and embarks on an epic journey back to the top of the hill. The movie runs extremely long (this is an EPIC journey after all), so he takes the extra time to search interference. While there, he comes across the Desert Island V game thread and decides to sign up, hyping up his list along the way, without even having made one.

Meanwhile, a group of U2 fans are hatching a plan in the PLEBA section to break into Hannover Quay and steal the band's working tapes. The movie ends up being literally weeks long, with Bill Murray taking the movie theater crowd captive until the film is over. Edge is the only one who enjoys it, as he attempts to actually focus on the artistic side of such bloat instead of trying to escape.

Elsewhere, Larry is the only one watching over the studio and is so preoccupied by the Desert Island game that he does not notice the PLEBAns, nor Bono's multiple calls for help. By the time the film does eventually end (which it does via a cliffhanger due to lack of film; the potato never reaches the top of the hill, which Murray claims is "heartbreakingly symbolic and poignant"), Larry had already lost all four of his matches, taking much verbal abuse in the process, and is so distraught that he can't continue on with the recording sessions and goes off to a real desert island to find out why he loves the material he chose so much in the first place.
And here's the list Ax and I came up with for him to enter:

Yeah, U2 owned Dancing Barefoot and made it their own. As for Watchtower, I hate it on RAH, but I think the Lovetown versions are the best I've heard of that song.

I'm not so keen on Unchained Melody really, but Everlasting Love isn't bad.

They play weird shit at basketball games, too. I've heard "With or Without You" a few times.

Yep. Achtung-era b-side. It's not good, but I don't think it's quite as bad as a lot of people here reckon. It's far better than Fortunate Son in any case!
