Just when we thought 2020 had finally hit its nadir.

Hat is a nice tribute to Chadwick Boseman though.

We let Cobbler name the 25th Shuttlecock thread.

This whole forum should be shut down and put out of its misery.

I pretty much solely hate on Larry these days, but I gotta give the man credit because I really just took notice of how great he is on Bad. At 4:33 when he starts going double time on the cymbals to accent the song's building intensity, that is so good. Whoever engineered the kit really got it right too because it's super crisp and cuts through the mix like a knife.

Larry is really good on that album in general. It's a more textural record that only requires a tight, energetic rhythm section on a few occasions, so we mostly get these loose, loping beats that provide sound color as much as they do rhythm. He should emphasize toms more.

Well it's a custom made hat. It was a street vendor/artist on the Champs-Élysées. All his designs had quotation marks. I asked him to do a U2 one and I didn't really want the marks but there was a bit of a language barrier.

Imagine getting a U2 hat, never mind a custom one.

Imagine being associated with U2 in any way publicly.

Imagine posting on a U2 forum or running a U2 setlist website.

Fucking sad.
