The History Mix DVD

I was really surprised at how much I liked the History Mix DVD. I really thought it woild be a throwaway promo, but I think that for what it was, I really liked it. Watching the History Mix I thought about the past ten years in my own life. I guess U2 is a sort of time stamp for me.

I also really liked the Please video.

Yeah its put together really well. Certainly made me look at their 90s work and remember how much they rock.
I thought everyone had seen that Please vid..it was played on music stations here a lot.

I have no DVD player!

I'm gonna get it and just hope that if I stare at it hard enough, I'll start to see things.

It is in a seperate cardboard sleeve wrapped in plastic together with the double cd. I don't think it costs extra, mine was almost 30,- which is almost $30,-

I am enjoying the history mix. I love the part where they show clips of the Bologna concert, I was there! I remember that part and how emotional it was when Bono satellited to Sarajevo and they talked about how just a few hours prior more bombs had killed a child and injured many more...I have always wanted a copy of that show because it was one of my favorite shows, so thank you U2 for putting clips on this dvd! And hopefully there will be more on the Best of DVD documentary of Sarajevo!

I got it at Target for $14.88 with the DVD. What a deal! All the regular stores here have it, like Circuit City or Best Buy for 14.99.
They had a lot when I was there at 10:00 am. Good Luck!

Beat ya! E20 at Media Markt Amsterdam (Arena). I heard it was even E15 at Media Markt Rotterdam, but don't take my word for it.

As for the DVD, I think it's way cool! Total run time is about 20 minutes:
- 7:40 The History Mix
- 2:20 Best Of 1990 - 2000 DVD Trailer
- 5:00 Please - Live
- 4:00 Beautiful Day - Eze Version

It has a very cool intro with a big mirrorball and some snapshorts of U2 (with the intro of UTEOTW as background music). The menu is animated the whole time.
The DVD trailer makes me wish it's already 2 December. It basically shows some of the videos that'll be on the DVD (really quick shots, etc.), it mentions the Director Commentaries (on the trailer Phil Joanou talking about the use of a certain camera and Kevin Godley about showing nothing in the middle of Numb). The bonus tracks are shown (Mofo, Please, Lemon, IGWSHA) and some Behind The Scenes (again Phil Joanou's version of One). And all this in less than 2 1/2 minutes!

Great teaser!

Marty

Do you guy's know if there are any "easter eggs" on the DVD or not? I just got it as well and I figured if there were any, one of you U2 "techies" out there would have figured it out by now.
