much respect.

I respect this so much that I'm going to help it maintain its low ratings by not watching it even now. :up:

bite me.

i remember staying in that evening and taping it...on a vcr! i did the same thing when they appeared on this vh1 show legends, which was basically behind the music without focusing on the drama of "omg the singer became alcoholic/a drug addict/went bankrupt!"

coolian2 02-21-2009 07:54 PM

OrARoundabout 02-21-2009 08:04 PM

it aired in america, on the channel abc.

i'm not sure if it's still the lowest rated, but when it aired in 97 it was. regardless though, yeah. no one watched it.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's on one of my bazillion bootleg DVDs that I probably watched once in 2004 and haven't touched since. So I've seen it and don't really remember it. :tongue:

I too stayed home and taped it. It was cool as hell back then. Haven't watched it since.

But didn't Dennis Hopper narrate it?

I think Mick Jagger's TV special from a few year's back may be the current holder of that title.

Well, that explains it...I'm not sure I would have been inclined to watch it, not a huge Pop/PopMart fan...


BUT I DO ROCK OUT TO MOFO!

Pop

God, I love this album.

digitize 02-21-2009 09:54 PM

I'll watch this when I finish listening to NLOTH for the 23894592385934520938465293485th time.

purpleoscar 02-21-2009 10:30 PM

They certainly let their egos go too far but the result was a great tour even if the Americans didn't "get it". Let's hope they get ambitious again with the new tour and blow away the new audience they created the past 10 years.

The Allen Ginsberg version of Miami :drool:

The Sad Punk 02-21-2009 11:38 PM

The first video has 235 views. I'm sure that's at least twice as many as there were originally.

Haha, I think Bono's in that, too.

That is a terrible, terrible documentary. Although it seemed that everytime I put on the Biography channel, a repeat of it would be showing. I'm sure I could probably karaoke to it by now. Do people do that with documentaries?
