I'm enjoying the new Chili Peppers album overall. It's different for them, and while not all of the songs are top-shelf, it is pretty great overall. I'm loving The Longest Wave, Goodbye Angels, Dreams of a Samurai and obviously Dark Necessities.

Ali. I've been meaning to watch it since Muhammad Ali passed away a few weeks ago. Pretty good, though it suffers from Michael Mann's overlong random shots.

This band deserve to be huge and hope they are.

I had the chance to see them a couple months ago at a 2 or 300 person venue and I didn't go because I had a night class. :(

Possibly unpopular opinion:

U2 would benefit from a PopMart situation where they ran out of time and had to go into overdrive recording, without a lot of time to rethink things.

i listened to PoP today,  well most of it,  and it is still a GREAT FKN album.   :-*

PoP would be current if released today.  I would bet $1000 that if Do You Feel Loved appeared in a good commercial or tv soundtrack tomorrow without saying who it was from, it would be heavily downloaded (and that was probably my least favorite track back when it was released).   
I've written long rants about this, so I'll restrain myself, but PoP was the last time a U2 album could be anything at all.  Sometimes that means people bash it. Sometimes that means you create a classic. And sometimes you realize 20 years later that it was both.

That's my favorite because some days, I feel like flipping the universe a bird - especially this year, haha.

I think the band would agree that if someone gets something spiritual out of their music, great, and if they don't, great. One size does not fit all. But just because a u2charist may not be your cup of tea, doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing.

Sly, I think it's a case of to each their own.  Some people appreciate the spiritual aspect of U2's music and might find it interesting to engage in a worship service of this kind.  If it's a bunch of out of tune l3 years old, of course it would be awkward, but I can envision a scenario where it could be done professionally and where it could be a unifying experience to those involved who are open to this kind of thing.  In other words, some people find religion to be dark or oppressive.  Others of us, who didn't suffer under a repressive system while growing up, find it to be a positive experience and sometimes even uplifting.

I would be happy to just shake Larry's hand.
