A U2 Argument
« on: August 14, 2017, 02:52:04 PM »
This is an idea for possibly multiple threads. Each thread describes a band conversation, or argument. Each person adds to it by adding a sentence and an optional action by a band member. Italics are used to describe motions. Bold is the person talking. Upper case is yelling.


Keep your entries true to the band member (something they might actually say/do), try to be witty and keep the conversation flowing. Hopefully we can make this epic. So this particular argument centers around whether Edge's brilliant guitar solo at the end of "The Troubles" should have been on the album. Since it was cut short, maybe it should have been longer, maybe it should have been dropped? I'm sure they debated it, so lets imagine that debate.


For example, if I start as follows:


Adam: Lazily flicks his cigarette toward an imaginary ashtray.I think it's too short. Either make it longer, or don't bother putting it in.

You might add:

Bono: (Grins devilishly) That's what she said.

and a third person might add:

Edge: Angrily slams his guitar on the table. Adam, put the damn cigarette out, it's messin' with my groove!

So, to get started for real:

Larry: Looks like we're going to be here all night again. (Makes a pot of coffee.)

Edge "As many times as it takes to get it right...can't you see I'm on fire here?" throwing the now broken drumsticks back at Larry.
