I once saw some stupid tourists in the Waimakariri Gorge who dangled their keys to lure a kea towards them. Those dumb fuckers almost lost their fingers. Kea don't have scruples and those beaks can do real damage.

Before they showed up I'd just been taking photos of the bird chilling, hoping he or she wouldn't go for the rubber on the car we'd rented.

Well, I laughed.

What if they decided to release two x 8 song albums like 9 months apart.

Even that's being generous.

What if Nick Cave had released The Lyre of Orpheus in 2004 and Abbatoir Blues in 2010, while talking a great game for much of the intervening six years?

Were Edge and Morleigh even married at that point?

From what I could tell, Edge and Morleigh's relationship grew as the Zoo TV tour went along. So it's possible that Bono and Morleigh's choreographed dance was going on before she and Edge were an "item". There was some other girl who did the MW dance for the first 2 legs, then she had to get back to her real life and Morleigh then took over the role.

- Source, Bill Flanagan's "U2 at the end of the world". If you read it enough times, as I did when I was a teenager, you'll feel like you were actually there, and part of the Zoo TV crew.

Who gives a turkey?

Do we really need to justify the difference between acting and writing lyrics about someone?

A couple of quick things. Looks like the U2 appearance on Fallon will be rerun on the 20th. Maybe some people might see it this time since it isn't going to be on at 2am.

Also, can anyone give me the origin of the October 20th information that the band will be doing an announcement? We keep discussing it, but I just realized I never knew how that info came to be

thanks

I don't think we know for sure. I'm guessing it will be a u2.com announcement.

You're most welcome. It's cool to hear the sort of philosophy of this album that we keep getting mentions of from Bono. The overall theme being, what would you want to say to those you love if it was your last chance to tell them something...
We keep getting the eluding to - the end. Whether this is just the concept for this album or not, it does get you feeling like the band is seeing the sunset and reflecting on the important personal feelings that go along with that.

Now that could mean things could get a little cheesy or a little lame lyric-wise on that path, if not done just right. My hope is that it translates really well, like i think it does in Little Things, and to a level in TBT as well.

will be cool to hear what else he has to say
