So sharks kill people and they obstruct people's perfectly nice window views? I mean, the nerve.

YES!

You have got to request that you get to do the "This song is not a rebel song..." introduction.

He said he wanted to do "side 1" of the album, but damned if I can remember what was actually side 1, since I've only ever had the CD.

I looked on Amazon for help, but that didn't work. I swore Surrender was on the EP, wasn't it? Was it in the original VHS concert but not the EP? He mentioned Surrender, so maybe he's confused, too.

Maybe he has the vinyl. He said it would include SBS but not NYD, and I made a sad face. But I confirmed that I was reasonably certain all the songs on the album were in my range.

Maybe I'll run across the room and climb up onto the sound booth with a big white flag. And get a mullet wig. And those boots.

I'll cross my fingers it actually happens - he's had some grand ideas before that haven't panned out. But I know the guitarist and drummer he has in mind also like U2, so YAY.

Good luck with that, Cori. I would love to play U2 songs in a live performance.

My family returned today. My mother is not happy that I've grown a chin beard.

His mind is blown, now that 27 years later, he just learned that the VHS concert of Red Rocks was not the full show. Ha!

Speaking of which, I still haven't watched the DVD version that came with the reissue.

Thanks martha! He had guessed the first side right, then. I told him I wasn't so keen on doing 11 O'Clock and Party Girl.

I watched it once, and yeah, that's been it.

So I see there's been the usual bitch and moan fest going on regarding setlists. I'm glad I haven't been paying too much attention lately.

Nice to see some HMTMKMKM love again.

I honestly didn't think I would fall prey to it, but I couldn't help it. I was that disappointed that they dropped NLOTH.

Oh well.

Don't get me wrong, I certainly don't agree with some of the changes, dropping NLOTH being one of them.

I just, I don't know, don't seem to care as much this time. Perhaps it's because as of now I'm not seeing them this time around unless a Boston date gets added.

Remind me again how many shows they played thus far?

Yeah, so, um, then how has NLOTH been dropped? Do we know for sure that it will never appear in a set ever again? Will they not play it a full year from now in North America?

What are we talking about exactly?

My goodness. Did I really need to add that they dropped NLOTH in the rehearsal today? Seeing as how it's the only set they've played so far, I thought that was a given.

Need I remind you that I'm usually rather rational about such things? And please note that I was laughing at my knee-jerk reaction in that comment.

Oh, and also, is this where I go on and on about how much I can't stand Stand Up Comedy?

Yes you did need to add that. I have not been following the rehearsals because I really couldn't care less. I only go into The Other Place to look at the Montreal thread. Other than that, the people over there really do scare me, so I stay on this side of the forum.

Anyway, it's only rehearsals and not necessarily a harbinger of the next two or three legs of the tour. They dropped NLOTH today. So what? That doesn't mean it will be dropped permanently.

I didn't suggest it would be.

If they play it Friday, I'll come in here and happily submit to a spanking.
