What's u2 worth? what's this site worth?

I'm curious, How mcuh do people think u2 is worth in the big picture, in the long ru or whatever, and what about this site to?


MY opinion is that u2 and this site are very small parts of life, and if they became large parts of my life it would be pretty lame. And there are times then I think all this does become too large a part of life. anyways..this thread is abotu what YOU ppl think.

Hmmm...

Well, U2 is a part of my life everyday...the music I listen to, the videos I watch. I also spend a vast majority of my free time at Interference (surprise, surprise!).

The key words are "free time"...I don't let U2 or this place consume my life. I still always have my homework done and things like that. I don't let my "real world" suffer because of my "U2 world"...however, I like to merge the two together whenever possible...

U2 is Priceless. It's music. Quality music. They are truly "great" and there is precious little "Greatness" left in the world. One can never put a price on such a thing.
As for this site, well, its very valuable too. Its a place for the world to connect over something they love. Thats important. You cant compare things like this site with other, vitally important things in life. its just apples and oranges.

U2 is a big part of life is music is big to you.

Some people it's SPORTS.
Some people it's ART/PAINTING/SCULPTURE, etc
Some people it's WORKING FOR A CAUSE
Some people it's CHARITY, HELPING
Some people it's MUSIC.

U2 is huge for me at least. Music is huge. It helps me when I'm down. It's like a lover --> excluding all their bad qualities/habits , so U2 is better than a lover.

Hmmm...seems like your life took on more U2 dimension when you were brought up on stage with the band...a cool thing, but all of sudden, we saw you here everyday...interesting.

1.) Remind me to NEVER touch a cd case in your house

2.) so basically instead of workign towards a cause, or helping people, or doing something constructive..your listening to a rock band?..sounds like u2 is a destructive thing

I'm playign devils advocate...I just really want to see what people think

You missed my point. I'm talking about what INSPIRES people more than anything. Yes - I love donating but it doesn't inspire me like U2 does. Come over, we can fling U2 CD's if you want, CD's are pieces of plastic. U2's music is in our soul and we can hear it whenever we want.

well first off the comment about not touching cd's was a comment about you saying u2 was better than a lover


baker you answered my question then...u2 inspires you to do stuff. Now I wonder..does everyone share the same sentiment?

This site's monetary value is little, but U2 mean a lot to a lot of people so to belittle people who feel that way is somewhat churlish. A lot of time, as people have said, music is used as inspiration, and for some people idols are "cultivated" by people to replace things that are missing in their life, and that's their choice. It is harmless.

Maybe your own life is full enough and rich enough to do without these thoughts and beliefs, but others aren't. So don't knock them!

Looking for explanations? Well I don't even understand
