I'm sure Malibu is full of hilly areas, so I don't see what's so creepy about describing Edge's home as being on a hill.  This thread has gotten unnecessarily contentious imo.

The entire town of Malibu California was evacuated Friday night due to a spreading firestorm. Edge has a big house in Malibu California. Its up in a hilly area about 250 meters from the beach. There are some relatively empty clear lots to the side and in back of it, but the house itself is surrounded by trees. The empty lots with little or no trees could serve as a good fire break, but if the firestorm is powerful enough, that might not make any difference.


Its just incredible how fast these fires grow and how difficult it is to stop them and prevent the loss of property in so many areas in California.

There's a lot more detail written here than just a "hilly areas". 

"250 meters from the beach". "Relatively empty clear lots to the side and in back of it". "But the house itself is surrounded by trees".

That's not just a description saying "hilly areas".  This is creepy and very much stalkerish.

Well, if you seriously believe that then I guess you have already contacted the police since stalking is a crime.

God, Wons I sure wouldn't call the police.  Though, Edge might if he saw this thread. J/K.  Your depth of U2 Fandom is unbelievable and hard for me to comprehend.

Given that your claims of "stalking" continue to be your only contribution this thread, I thought you might, but perhaps you have other reasons for posting in this thread. Whatever it is, it continues to be NOTHING to do with the topic of the thread.


In any event, The Edge's house is just fine. The Fire in Malibu was stopped several miles from his house. Plus, not all of Malibu was under manditory evacuation as it turns out. So I don't think the Edge was worried or sweating about this during the Dublin shows. I apoligize in advance to anyone who finds this information "creepy" and is upset by it. But it is information that is consistent with and important to the topic of this thread.


I was wondering the same thing wons.   Good to hear itís okay.   Thanks for the update.

The Music and Lyrics / Re: When the stars go blue

A great karaoke song when youíre out with a fellow u2 fan and are sufficiently inebriated.  This duet version was available where we were (metro St Louis) so I assume itís readily available elsewhere.

Bonos messing up the words to get out of your own way really bad. And edge played a few bad off notes. Yikes. Theyíll probably us Berlin night one for this one

Its a live show, not a studio recording. There are mistakes in the historic Red Rocks show. So what?

Wons I am getting tired of your attitude. Itís a forum for people to share opinions, and have chats about the bands and their shows and music.  Youíre right itís a live show, Iím describing a live mistake.

I just shared my opinion. If your tired of it, thats not my problem.


As several of us have tried to point out to you, it's not the opinion so much as it's the attitude and tone you use when expressing it. We don't want to be hurtful towards you, but we're really starting to tire of the know-it-all attitude you throw around on this forum.

And, as a big super U2 fan like you claim to be, you should know that the band has become notorious for wanting perfection on audio and video releases. That's why ever since they have been able to afford it and the technology has been available, they generally film multiple shows and it's not a coincidence that they wear the same clothes, or have a static rotation of the same outfits, for many shows on a tour. If a song doesn't go well the night of the official video filming, they can just splice in the film of that same song from another show.

Iíll be shocked if they donít edit the beginning

Not going to happen. They're tired and deserve a well-earned break.

*pokes head in*

To be fair, it's been a heck of a long time since I posted here. But folks tend to forget, there was a very very very dedicated group of fans who frequented and, I think, kept this Forum vibrant the last ten years. And many of those people were young (myself including, despite my turning 30 this year). We were a community, and there was a slow collapse of that community. People grew up, got busy, the world became more divided and mean, forums/Facebook turned into shouting galleries about politics, and I feel like compared to ten years ago when I first joined, there was the sense that an era had passed. This place was truly more than just a fan forum, it was a home for many who came here looking for people who wouldn't judge them. Now, we're far more distracted and less able to sit at our computer at 2 in the morning and talk with friends around the world; at least, on a forum. We do that elsewhere. The last ten+ years were a very unique time where, for a little while, so many fans checked the Forum before they checked the news in the morning. Now, it's the other way around.

*disappears for another year*

Canít see that happening as both very different places

How different can they be when they are both about U2? I can't think of any other place on the internet that is more similar to this than interference.com.
From what little I've seen and heard about Interference, it has more than a few members that get very nasty and personal with their comments.
Yes

I cannot reiterate what singnomore said enough. Two very, very different organizations.

How? Explain.
who cares. Their site, their server, their rules, their shutdowns whenevs they want to. At least Adam and Edge graced atU2 with their presence playing 2 songs at that gig some years back. U2 must know intrrference is... Argumentative, if u wanna be polite about it.

I give the front page updaters a break since this tour is busy. Wonderful shock that achtoon baby drew a cartoon for ei tour. I will read soon.

Well, wasn't this site shut down because of problems between posters like arguments? I don't know if you could say that one site is more argumentative than the other.
