The 7 Wonders of the Ultra Uber Modern World

Check this out. The radio station I listen to here in NZ compiled a list decided by listener votes as to what everyone thought was the most amazing thing (for any reason) in the modern world....here were the results.....

7. Brad Pitt
6. Snow Planet (an indoor all year round ski-field in NZ)
5. The 7's (fast rugby) in Wellington (it goes 'off' there!)
4. Peter Jackson - NZ director of Lord of the Rings etc
3. IPOD
2. The Crusaders (one of the best rugby teams in NZ - after the All Blacks)
1. U2!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!

Now, in celebration of that, lets post some 'ultra-uber' extraordinary band pics of the boys recieving awards etc!!!!

I know and no one (that is not a u2 fan) understands my obsession..I mean...they are so freakin Awesome!! and they have re-envengted themselves, yet stay true to themselves...


It is funny that as I read the book the guys had/have so many insecurities/uncertainies they are so human....

If I loved them 110 times b4 I love them 150 times more now

I konw what you mean...my eyes are much wider open to the fact that they are human just like you and me, and although they are incredibly good at what they do, they still have struggles just like you and me.....puts a whole new perspective on it all after reading the book.....I LOVE THAT BOOK!!

Oh that is SO awesome!! And I agree with you guys about reading the book - I'm about 3/4 of the way through, and it's so awesome and refreshing to read about all their little quirks and insecurities and to know that they are human - and very sweet with it! I didn't think it was possible to love them anymore and now I do

From this:


To this:


And remaining ultra-awesome the whole way!
