The Happy Thread
« on: January 18, 2009, 05:35:59 PM »
Is anyone else but me getting a bit frustrated at the level of negativity in a lot of the forum posts? Complaints about the direction of the new single and album, even though we haven't heard it yet, complaints about the Lincoln Memorial performance, Bono's activism, the album cover...everything!

People, this is a time to be happy! We're getting new U2 music after more than four years! They LOOKED and SOUNDED GREAT at the performance in Washington today! They'll be on tour this year! This is fabulous!

This thread is for chilling out and just being happy about all the exciting things happening in the world of U2. How awesome will the new single be live? What are you looking forward to the most? Any and all positive comments are welcome ;D

No negativity allowed here. No haters trying to justify their negative comments. Only shiney happiness and optimism. This thread is a safe haven for all of us.

Let the excitement begin!



Boom Cha!

This thread is perfection.

Annoying how people have to analyse what Bono does every minute.

Yay, I'm so glad everyone thought this thread was fun and not corny! :P

Happy things!
*New album comes out on March 3rd - exactly four years to the day when I first fell in love with U2! ;D That has made me happy since I first heard the release date...it's like a magical coincidence!
*Five hours till new single!
*I heard the Boots clip on youtube was taken off, but I never closed the window since I clicked on the link this morning, so I can still listen to it 8)
Non-U2 related happy things: Obama is inaugurated on Tuesday! And I barely have any school this week!

Oh, this is a great thread, thanks!

Happy thoughts! I'm so excited to hear the new single, I can barely concentrate on the work I'm supposed to be doing! I have to set myself strict time-slots where I'm not allowed to come on here (I'm breaking one right now).

Another neat thing - I noticed on the home page that the most users online ever record was set today!
