Can I just point out the obvious - that holy joe was not actually on POP? Should have been. Wasn't.

The Music / Re: Thoughts on SoI after some distance
« Last post by codeguy on Today at 11:11:42 PM »
I just listened to the entire album today, first time in a while, and forgot how good it was. I still can't LOVE the miracle, but everything after that keeps me hooked. I remember a thread a few weeks after it came out where it was asked where you would place it in your all-time U2 list and I went with #5, behind UF, JT, AB and WAR. Now, I might go with #6, lowering it behind Zooropa, but that's pretty respectable for a band together 38 years at the time of its release.

I'm assuming that it is a Spider-Man Turn off the dark track.
It is, it's awful.

General U2 Discussion / Re: Fan Clubs Encourage Second-Hand Living

I saw this quote in a book by Bono's friend, Eugene Peterson.  Bono said this book "Run with Horses" means a lot to him as well.  I admit, I am in the U2 fan club, albeit for what many people join for....access to concert tickets.  Thoughts on this take on fan clubs, VIP packages, journeys to Dublin?

" Fan clubs encourage secondhand living. Through pictures and memorabilia, autographs and tourist visits, we associate with someone whose life is (we think) more exciting and glamorous than our own. We
find diversion from our own humdrum existence by riding on the coattails of someone exotic. We do it because we are convinced that we are plain and ordinary. The town or city that we live in, the neighborhood we grew
up in, the friends we are stuck with, the families or marriages that we have—all seem undramatic. We see no way to be significant in such settings, with such associations, so we surround ourselves with evidence of someone who is. We stock our fantasies with images of a person who is living more adventurously than we are. And we have enterprising people around who provide us (for a fee, of course) with the material to fuel the fires of this vicarious living.
There is something sad and pitiful about the whole business.  But it flourishes nonetheless."

This doesn't seem like a Bono statement. Is there a link?
