Although I can see where you may infer some irony in diamond's posting of the subject at hand, let me state for the record:

DiamondBruno_9's fandom is indeed sincere, and Bono knows it.

Bono has recognized DiamondBruno_9 (and his children) at subsequent shows and in favorable ways. Remember, Bono is one about transcending boundaries. What's so odd about transcending the usual technique of dancing on stage with a female and instead dancing with a man who is made of steel.

Sure, Diamond has some shenanigans up his sleeve, but we all do. His sincerity as a U2 fan is as solid as the Joshua Tree is an album.

In fact, let me tell you about a project that I have in mind:
I live in a semi-rural area, with lots of former timber and mine lands. I am looking at buying 100 acres to build a retreat.

It will be called The Shrine of Our Lady of Interference, a shrine to someone once referenced as "the Mother Teresa of U2 Fans," DiamondBruno_9. I have told him of my plans and he likes it. I have spoken to Arun_V and he may even donate a ganesha and some other Hindu vestments. I also plan to put a gift shop, restaurant, and maybe even a summer camp for kids on site.

I hope that if you are ever in parts unknown, you will visit the Shrine. Admission will be free, and so will the beer.

I thought this was dropped long ago.

Anyway - I do not doubt his fanhood, hell I would like to be the one in those photos, I just thought it was ironic that he posted that thread.

Anyway - I am back from Diamond's hometown (?) and have to say that place it quite amazing.

I think Bono is very intuitive, but too busy to size up every fan, of course.
He prolly just takes it all with a grain of salt. I do think before he'd take any fan too seriously he'd be able to sense if they were for real or not though.

LARRY, on the other hand, can smell a phoney a mile away, and goes to great lengths to avoid them as much as possible. Even he has to tolerate it sometimes though.....really sad.

well...sometimes people really get down on bono and are all 'the man is a complete idiot.' i never understood that. clearly he is SO intelligent...look at his lyrics. think about the first meaning you get from them, then ask your friend to listen to it and ask what they got and so on and so on. those lyrics don't have 1001 meanings to them on accident or by coincidence.

as for people..i guess i don't know because i've never met him. i agree with it seeming like he extends the benefit of the doubt in general. he also seems to be so free with himself in that way though, which is something i admire greatly. he has learned not to judge and learned to tolerate and forgive and these things, to me, are the most difficult things in life to learn. he has had to have been burned so far, because if you reach that age and have NEVER been hurt by someone, you weren't living to begin with.

but...too trusting or not? i don't know, it's not my life. and clearly i have a lot more decisions to be making about how i'm going to run my life in the future. who am i to judge bono's actions? no one.

Hmmm. Just some thoughts here. Diamond you really are to be commended. Never one to rile or get offended and takes things out of proportion. I remember in that thread I made in the confessionals where everyone gave kudos to random members. Someone mentioned your ability to stay calm, to remain polite, to cop everything on the chin. I cannot remember the words, but I read it and agreed wholeheartedly. I wished I could have formed the words 1st as they were so true. Obviously Ouizy wasn't trying to get your goat, it was an interesting alternate perspective. After your encounter with Bono, I remember seeing all your references to it posted, reading your open letter, seeing all the photos and thinking argh how long will you be singing this song? But after a bit, I know it wasn't you cashing in on the experience. You weren't taking advantage to gain cred, nothing of the sort. You are plain and simply a true fan. A rarity.

If I can see that, Bono most certainly can too.

Mr Bama, I like your ideas. But you can't have that in writing.
I think you're quite ok too Mr Diamond.

I was sort of in Scottsdale for work and stayed at The Royal Palms, but spent some time at the Phoenician. The Royal Palms is amazing. An absolutely fantastic little hotel where they treat you like royalty.

I did wear sunscreen, but still burnt the hell out of myself. the day I left it was 106 degrees, and the next day it was 110.

I did not go to any clubs (I had a lot of work related stuff at night) but I do remember some of the restaurants I went to:

T.Cooks
Medizona
Elements
Cowboy Ciao

I kept asking the concierge for some greart local food and that is where she sent me, I have a feeling those places are not local at all...

Anyway it was a great time and a beautiful place.

The heat?

Well, it is very very very dry.

But, so much nicer than humid NYC.

Ouizy-
Those are FINE places.
Ive dropped some SERIOUS coin at Royal Palms.
That is an excellent place for a nice quiet date w/a lady.

The Phoceian is a little outta my league as I sell my cars TOO cheaply.

Glad you had a good time.
Out-
