Monday morning, 18 years of mourning... (wasn't a Monday)
« on: April 26, 2018, 08:42:45 PM »
Bono's 18th birthday (May 10, 1978) was a Wednesday.

Nowadays Bono likes to introduce OOC as "our first single... written on our 18th birthday".

Lies! :o

You literal twit. Bono has artistic liscence. He grew up in a cultural milieu that bemoaned Mondays. His colleague, Bob Geldof wrote 'I don't like Mondays' also released in 1979.

Bono is a naturalized American you say? I give you The Bangles. Don't even make me discuss the Smashing Pumpkins.

Next your going to tell me MLK was killed in the evening. We don't even know if Bono was on a family holiday in Australia therefore making it a morning.

When tapping into the oral tradition of storytelling one can make these oversights in the name of teachings and dramatic impact.

He could have written the song on a Wednesday referring to the Monday experience, no?

LMAO just posting my random thoughts since I'm bored at work and life, and since this forum be ded anyway.

Just checking the "canonical"Ness of his 18th bday. Idek when OOC was first released as a single. But to make you happy, thank you!!!! "Artistic license" never crossed my mind!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe this thought would have been better on gurlfest Tumblr, where U2 is irrelevant there anyway.

They are irrelevant here too. I've never heard so much pi**ing and moaning.

^not much moaning here cos ded! You seem active, try talku2 forum. More active but lots of vocal curmudgeon moaners there. So damn trite and boring.

Here we get literal silly threads like "is it time for a greatest hits tour". And "do U2's millions of diehard fans not want a new album". At least my random "blog" thoughts are not such rhetorical questions.

Oh. I just thought I could enter a c*** fight with a fellow fan who dwells in obscure and arcane points. I suppose the same throwdowns happen in regards to the American constitution. But artistic liscence is a real thing. Emenim uses it too.

yep. Some people...

Anyway, you seem like a new and active user, so if you want more chats try talku2 or even interference (shudder. Most guys there but surprisingly it's the coontiest and harshest).

Or just look at nice pics of the band on IG, idk.

Ok, I checked out talku2. This led to the highlight of my day, a thread about offensive lyrics to which an tha mutely contributed a photo of a mole with no comment.

Incidentally, I recognized, like, half the posters there.

I would say I was too old to be perusing photos of guys of any age (mullet to chicken neck) on the Gram, but what's my excuse here?
