Oh and it's popbonobuzzbaby. That's actually my username in a lot of different places, except for here! It would be easier if it was the same everywhere I suppose but too late now! LOL.

There were 3 rehearsal videos. I have them all, but that one was the best.

Oh and it was MB, not GB of course but still, it was like 4-7 MB for a 3 second gif with the online tool I was using for a bunch of videos from youtube. why is still a big mystery. Got some new headphones from my laptop today so I'll deflower them with the Please rehearsal in a little while.

Here's the thing about Bono in the smoking rehearsal. This was a rehearsal, that I'm sure he never thought would see the light of day in any kind of public forum, let alone the world wide internet which was not a whisper of what it is now. He couldn't have had any inkling of what that kind of exposure was at the time this was was shot. So he isn't really performing here. or acting. It's just him being him.

Yeah what CK said... bunks and stuff.

Many thanks!

Right?! The attitude on that man. In a good way, of course.

Here's the link to the Awards video, the one Rhiannon asked about. It should work, let me know if not.

Yup, that's it. It's Bono being Bono. I think that's what makes this such a great performance. A very raw, honest and exposed performance for a very emotional song. Dare I even use the word 'authentic'. Sometimes, imo, the over acting and 'posing' (if you will) gets in the way. In a way, it's the mask removed. That rehearsal for me was a perfect performance.

Thank you for posting it.

Seconded. I love when the band is at their most emotional, most real. All the "posing" does get tiring after a bit and I love being able to get that glimpse of reality.

The posing was pretty incredible too, though. I mean, for a person who's had as many cheap shots taken at them as Bono, it takes some pretty serious balls to go out every night looking like you're just dying for somebody to try to kick your ass.

So I've apparently decided to revisit some prime fic real-estate. Or rather, my brain has decided for me. Way to kill the time whilst I wait for my mom to call and tell me she's on her way. (We've got a planned shopping excursion to the mall tonight. Just me & her. No kids, no husbands, nada. It's a rarity. )

And hoo boy tonight is probably gonna be one of those "stay up and read fic while drinking coffee" nights. I'd forgotten how much GOOD stuff is out there!

Hi and bye, Dazz!

And I'd love a day trip to Cleveland but argh finances. And lack of sitters. Because as much as I'm eager to take Lil'Miss FroBaby on her first R&R trip, she's only 1 1/2, and she is FAR too young for a baseball game and fireworks. That said, I'm still trying to plan a way to take her up to the Hall. I'd love to see her innocent baby reaction to something as amazing as Ad's PopMart bass and B's Fly getup. Lil' CK was 4 his first trip, so it's not completely crazy....

Catching up late here. So the Troo Phans are making fun of a bunch of girls on PLEBA? If obsessing over Bono's hair provides me a respite from my hectic life of Babydom, moving and bills so fucking be it!

And fanfiction gets me through late night feedings.
