So the pavement brought you back to us then?

And is your name actually Jerry because I don’t think I can handle people calling you Jerry Dunk any more than I can handle being called “Lucky.” 🤢

Leave Britney alone. My regular moniker was taken, and would only be considered cliche in U2 circles. Everyone else just thought I was either straight edge or, in less fortunate cases, well, let’s not go there.

The Great Dictator is one of my favorite Chaplin films along with Modern Times, another Chaplin film.

His name is not actually Jerry. Dunk however just might be his real last name.

I've been away for a while, so what's the story? PFan is resurrected as JDunk after a hit and run?

Yesterday was NLOTH's 10th birthday, guys. February 27, 2009.

Also, if you're interested, eleven days ago was the 10th anniversary of the famous NLOTH leak(wherein some universal employee in Australia accidentally made the album available to purchase for download). Here is the thread that was going when it happened: http://www.u2interference.com/forums...xi-193633.html

Anyway, still one of their most frustrating albums. Fez, MOS, title track, White As Snow, and Cedars are all classic as far as I'm concerned. Then there's the middle 3. Somewhere in between are Magnificent, UC, and Breathe, all of which are decent but have flaws. Magnificent has a great riff and good chorus but the verses drag. UC is musically fine but the chorus hasn't aged all that well(the solo at the end nearly makes up for everything though). Breathe has an exciting rhythm but never quite achieves full liftoff.

Happy birthday to a flawed album with moments(pun intended) of brilliance.

I still can't believe they thought it was a good idea to open the 360 concerts with Breathe. I love the song but I can't think of a tour of theirs with a worse opener.

It's admittedly a hard album to choose a show-starter from, but it just hit me today that the disco remix of Cock Crazy they were playing wouldn't have been the worst choice, and would have gone well with introducing the full audio-visual capabilities of The Claw. I mean the song title just fits the spot perfectly.

Don’t complain. We got ‘Return of Stingray Guitar’ into Beautiful Day. That shit was hideous. We would have killed for Breathe.

I thought my Stand Up Comedy initial take was the worst. I

Upon further review... uh...
