    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    They're just not that sort of live band. Even at the Sphere, Bono announced that they'd be highlighting a different album after the opening Achtung Baby sequence. It was Rattle and Hum 3/4 of the time with some other classic 80s tracks sprinkled in. Best hope for deep cuts is that they become a...

    US Politics XXXVIII: "Patriots" vs Reality

    What did Nick66 get banned for? That whole saga during the Achtung Baby remaster / rerelease was pretty epic. Guy got so much hate for speculating it wasn’t going to be a remaster and then even more hate when confirmed he was right.

    Random TV Talk IV: We're So Broken Inside

    Reservation Dogs just cemented itself as one of my all time favourite shows. Beautiful finale and I can’t wait to rewatch from the start. Other stuff I’ve watched and liked in recent times: The Bear: worth all the hype and like Res Dogs a show that loves to stop the plot and just let us be...

    US Politics XXXVIII: "Patriots" vs Reality

    So can we start referring to him by his prison ID instead of 45 now?

    Songs of Surrender - Discussion, reviews, impressions

    I finally read Surrender over the last couple of weeks, and one line that stood out to me was him acknowledging he is only 1/4 a musician and he needs his 3 band mates to be a complete musician. After listening to Pride, I’m not interested in 2/4 of a musician when I could be listening to a...

    The National: Sunshine on My B&Ck

    Very much agree with the pro-Boxer and SWB sentiments here. The former a true modern classic and the latter the progression I’d been waiting for since. This isn’t as good as those two, too early to see how it stacks up to High Violet and TWFM. But to me it’s not as “grey” as HV (something I...

    US Politics XXXVII: hiiiii Kevin, I’m your biggest fan!

    Judging by Charles’ expression throughout I think he felt the same. The man does not inspire respect the way his mother did. It’s easy enough to ignore the Royal family most of the time and treat them as a tourist attraction. But the pomp and pageantry today just feels so undeserved in this...

    The National: Sunshine on My B&Ck

    Agree on it being a grower. Tropic Morning News didn’t grab me as a single but I really enjoyed it here. Once Upon a Poolside is yet another stellar opening track, listening on headphones it felt like Matt had his arms wrapped around me. Overall, no one song particularly jumped out at me, but...

    Random TV Talk IV: We're So Broken Inside

    The Wire. About to go through it again myself. You’d get 100 different responses to this from 100 different people, but ignore them and watch The Wire.

    Shuttlecock XXV: Cool Hats Club

    Great read Cobs. Spent longer reading it than I have listening to this project and I don’t see that ever changing. I love U2, but side projects without all four of them have never interested me. And listening to live performances over the years is a much better way of experiencing how they...

    US Politics XXXVII: hiiiii Kevin, I’m your biggest fan!

    Isn’t this by original design? So the less populous states don’t get pushed around by the larger states, they all get equal representation in the Senate? The lads who created this system of government had probably assumed that all Senators would govern in good faith, but that’s another discussion.

    Random Music Talk CXXXI: Interference Finally Gets Its Revenge on Cobbler

    So it sounds pre-Taylor? Man, his death hit me the hardest since Bowie. Wish they’d release footage of the LA tribute show. From what I read the two shows are comparable to U2’s Slane Castle shows after Bono’s dad passed, the first a wake and the second a celebration.

    Random TV Talk IV: We're So Broken Inside

    I’ll hang my head in shame on that. Went back and watched it again a couple of years later and it finally, definitely clicked with me. Night and cocksucking day.

    Random Music Talk CXXXI: Interference Finally Gets Its Revenge on Cobbler

    Meanwhile I went to see Andrew McMahon (Something Corporate, Jack’s Mannequin) do a solo show and had a great night. Feels like it’s the same crowd coming back every 3 years. Had the vibe of a group of old friends singing along with the pianist as he belts out some favourites. He’s even put...

    Random TV Talk IV: We're So Broken Inside

    2022 sadly saw the end of Better Call Saul, Atlanta, Better Things and more, but 2023 bringing the goods right out the gate with The Last of Us. I played the game on release and honestly felt the plaudits were overdone. Sub-Metal Gear Solid stealth gameplay and a top tier video game story is...

    US Politics XXXVI: Special Masters of our Domain

    Probably is time for another civil war. Elected leadership are either out for themselves or hamstrung by the first group, and there’s nothing United about this collection of states any more. Could the country just be split horizontally through the middle and y’all call it a day?

    Shuttlecock XXV: Cool Hats Club

    Problem is that his personal pastry chef is an enabler, always shouting out, ”here come the buns” so Bono’s all like, “got to get you into my mouth”. You think he’s sticking to the diet but then he shows up remorseful with crumbs around his mouth, all he can say is, “I’ve just seen a pastry”.
