All right, cool. Yeah, never hurts to look, so I'll keep an eye out. Would be neat if they did pop up.



I love that others here like him, too . How can you not, really? He's fantastic. Great way to finish off the day TV-wise.

Maybe someday if I ever find myself out that way we could go to a taping together or something! That'd be fun.

Angela
Absolutely! I'd love to go!

Thora, don't we need your current running playlist- so we now what not to suggest??
And what bands/performers to avoid!!?

I just heard (for my first time)on YT at ? Croke Park or something like that from 1986 Simple Minds playing New Gold Dream with Bono as guest singer with Jim Kerr.
oh it was smoking and propulsive.....
I'd happily suggest that < but I don't know if you like SM.

And anyone elese who likes SM and has not heard this YT verion ...run to it!
It's wonderful!

I'm fine, waiting for the Craig show to come on. That question you asked before about downloading? I know there is a webpage somewhere that you can download all of the AB sessions stuff easy and free. I don't remember what it's called though and I'm sure if you asked in the Music on the Internet section someone will know. Or if you wait I can ask Bono Mot because she'll probably remember.

*Editing next part to keep spoilers hidden until bonocomet sees the show*:

 
Tonight's show was so awesomely funny. The "rabbit" stuff, omfg (please tell me Craig told his studio audience the details of that, 'cause if so, I wanna know !). I looooooooove Craig's wickedly naughty sense of humor.

And Morgan Freeman reading from Snooki's book (seriously? Well, that makes me feel a LOT better about my shot at publishing a book someday-if she can do it, I sure as hell can) was great, too. That guy can make anything sound classy.

Also, that opening number? Yeah, that kicked all sorts of ass.

LOL, makes sense. Yay for lax dress codes!

My workplace is fairly cool dress-code wise. Pretty much goes like: No blue jeans. Keep it clean and not full of holes. And no writing anywhere on the outfits.

Outside of that, they don't care.

Aw . I hear you, I'd probably feel similar. But then again, if the crowd was enjoying it, maybe that'd make it easier.

I do have a friend who has done it, if I ever get up the courage I might take her with me.

We would goto the one of the Live Band Kareoke bars.
There ya go, that'd be a good way to do it. And having a friend along certainly helps-extra support and they're willing to risk looking just as silly as you are . And if you know already you'd sound good to an audience, that can help your confidence, too.

I don't have a good voice. At all. I just like singing along with music. Same goes with dancing. I know I'm not Queen of the Dance, but I don't care, dancing is fun.

I am amazed how musicians do what they do.
I wholeheartedly agree. Music and the people who make it-it's just such a fascinating topic to learn about, to discuss. I love music so much, and the fact that there are people out there responsible for crafting some of the most wonderful sounds I've ever heard in my life is truly awe-inspiring. Which is why I've always said if I had to be blind or deaf I'd go with being blind. I couldn't stand not being able to hear music anymore.

Excellent . Keep at it, who knows what other awesome sounds you can make.

Oh, interesting. I wonder that sometimes about musicians, when they use all this fancy technology now, they probably think back to the days before it existed and think, "Where was this when I was just starting out?" I know some people get bothered by artists using technology like that, but it's no different from artists using other technologies that were available to them in the past, and as long as I know THEY are still involved in the creation of the work, and as long as it still turns out good in the end, whatever tools they use to make it are fine by me *Shrugs*.

Speaking of music, Thora, I'd love to pass on some recommendations. What do you have on your playlist now, so that I'm not suggesting something you already have?

yeah, definatley, if i saw that the club audfience was enjoying thermsleves that would really help ( guitar playing)

same with the kareoke
my friend has a better voice than mine.
I just know that I don't completely suck at singing.

and I'm slowly getting used to singing aloud again in my apt

At my previous with a 2 roomate + me situaution the roomie who was there before and after me got very vicious and more about 2 years into my 10 year stay- the place, locarion, the stores, the beautiful big tree-lined streets, half a mile away or less from some of Brooklyn's most beautiful attractions, some yummy restaurants, a B&N 3/4 mile away (w bus route for mostof it when i didn't weant to walk), plus independnet bookstores, wonderful crafts shops in the next nabe over - is what kept me there plus not finding something suitabke on previous tries......

anyway she would get riled up if she heard me singing (like of she heard the radio or CD player going) down the hallway... i'd have my door shut and some muffled sound would come out...... she'd start screaming at me from down the hallway, or bang on my door.

I love to sing! I love music!
I love to be enveloped, withthe music all around me ( live concerts will do that!)!

so this was energy draing situaion at times
so smetimes I can forget that I can sing now! I'm not singing loud past 10P at night....

I'm a pretty good dancer (non-ballroom)
I love to dance!
when my younger 20 & 30's firneds - I sometimes join them to see a local U2 Tribute Band --- I can keep up with them when we're "swaying to the music, oooh ohh oh "

I odn't even tempt Fate anymore with that either this or that question

I love looking at Natire! I love looking at people's creative visual works in Art & Artisan Crafts, and Crafts in general!

Thora> more recommendations>>>

while it's not as fast tempo'd as some "drive songs " are

I am absolutely in love with from the Salome Tapes with

I Feel Free (Take 1)

it's bascially got a somewhat slowed version of the riff in UTEOTW with a whole diffrent set of singing/lyrics and some diffrence in the basswork/drumming. The singing both solo, a lot of harmonizing, and intertwining is sooooo beautiful! omg!!! < imho >
And

if you've never heard
(She's Gonna) Blow Your House Down #2
WOW!
i can't quite place what it might have turned into on AB, and
there is a very, familar U2 Bass Riff right at the end of the verses which I can't place!
This is faster, very intense, very cool!

and since we (I) know you love U2~~ I have that right!

I've only hear these 2 ( a few others) for the first times in this past week (maybe a bit last week, too)

and I'm just "blown away"......

there's a saying.... "how much Joy can you take?!"

I guess I can take a lot becuase Incredible Music (and incredible Art & Artisan Crafts) ( oh, yes, and Nature) ....... makes me soooo high/yet usually clear-headed at the same time!

it's the way I also feel about IGC, alot fo NLOTH etc (and AB "proper" )

so wow, oh, wow, oh wow......

I sympathise!

I haven't touched my bass since I moved in August... which isn't quite 14 months but it's bad enough.

It's also a matter of making enough room in here to get it and the amp out...

Sorry Adam, but I think I'm at least half an Edge girl now.

So much to catch up on... apologies if I miss things!

Big s and get-well vibes to those who've come afoul of strong-willed cats or slippery conditions or random acts of gravity... hope your various hurts heal quickly!

Dazz, I've always loved that pic you've got for a new avatar! It is a bit weird seeing you in something different though.

Tempura... And congrats on your new postcode, Thora!

Re: the guitar and stage "look" and stuff... I've seen guitarists who are all about looking cool and they pull it off, and I've seen ones that don't pull it off and look like idiots. I've also seen guitarists, experienced and otherwise, who are clearly concentrating more on what they're playing (and enjoying it) than how they're looking, and that's better than trying to look cool and failing.

The thought of me playing on stage is utterly ludicrous, but if I ever did it, I would hope I would be able to get into the music enough to not worry so much about how I look and whether anyone's actually looking at me. The benefit of playing bass is that you're not supposed to be in the spotlight so much...
(Unless you're like the dudes in Sleepmakeswaves or The Night Terrors... omg. Lead bass ftw!)

My friend who met Bono and Adam in Brisbane has put her pics on FB... not sure if this will work.

*experiments*

ETA: Nope. Will have to do it the long way round!
