Coming this June....

Okay, everyone, I just got done watching NBC's 75th anniversary special, and I turned the channel to ABC Family because Robin Hood: Men in Tights is on (hahaha!). And what do I see but Edge singing into the microphone, then Bono, Adam, and Larry...They're showing Elevation Boston on ABC Family this June! How cool is that?! I mean, I already have the DVD, but, in case people aren't aware of U2's greatness, maybe some more will be! I wonder what brought this on?

they figure there ratings on ABC can only go up after a year in pop, so why not?

Hrmmm...I can't decide whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. I mean, yeah, I'll love it when it's on, but I think a lot of people are getting pretty sick of U2 in their faces all the time. We'll just have to wait and see I guess.

Ah, you mean sort of like what happened with R&H? I'm not too concerned...I still know so many people who have never even HEARD of U2!!!

I have 2 friends who had never heard of them at all.

Anyway.. I can't decide if this is bad or good, either It's good, because there will be new fans, but it's bad because of overexposure possibilities and also there are possibilities of "selling out" comments again, I suppose.

Ack...I've gotten used to those misinformed "selling out" comments by now. It pisses me off to no end, but, as long as I know the truth, screw everyone else!

Same here, wertsie!

I still kind of think that the Target CD was leaning toward the dreaded "S-word" (Not sword! ) But then again, it's not like they went into the studio with the express purpose of writing and recording those songs for target - they were previously recorded.

I love my U2 7 CD! It was great for us USA fans because the singles weren't released over here, and imports tend to be a little expensive sometimes.

I love my U2 7 CD too, wertsie! But the reason why I think I wasn't too fond of the idea of the CD was because it was going to be released exclusively at Target. Sure I bought it and of course I loved it, but the fact that it was available only at Target kind of rubbed me in the wrong way.

Ok, I think I'll shut up now because I don't think I'm making my point any clearer and I'm making myself out to be a hyporcite. LOL!

No, actually, I see what you're saying now. Yeah, it was kind of weird that it was only available at Target...Wonder why they did that?...
