Hi from Holland as well ;-)
« on: February 23, 2009, 01:18:37 PM »
Hey hey hey!

I've been a lurker here for a while, and while listening to Zane Lowe on BBC 1 radio I thought I'd write an introduction while waiting for the U2 bit. Oh wait, they actually finally started the U2 interview now, man they certainly know how to keep you waiting!  ;D

I haven't listend to NLOTH yet, but the wait is getting harder, so I think I'll just give in very soon... that'll give me a good start for discussion as well!  ;)

My favourite albums are: Achtung Baby, The Joshua Tree, Unforgettable Fire and Boy, parts of HTDAAB and many of the eighties' B-sides. But there's something wonderful on every U2 album, that's just what's so great about them!

About me: I'm 27, I live in Utrecht, Holland (Hi Drowning Man!), and I work for a computer games translation company (part of my job involves playing games :D)... Oh, and I wanted to say hi to Julsport in case she sees this! I'm on the forum, finally!

Thanks everyone!

I'll be sure to drop by the Old Lady Club, Julsport! Will be great to see you there!

Drowning Man - are you studying in the city center or at the Uithof? I work very close to the University buildings in the center so if you study there, I might see you around sometime ;-)

Release?
« Reply #8 on: February 23, 2009, 03:28:19 PM »
Well, about the release, I'm kind of confused. On @U2 it says     *  March 2: Worldwide
    * March 3: North America     * February 27: Germany, Austria, Ireland

So I would guess it should be March 2, but most of the local record stores say Feb 27 so I have no idea now...

Unless they confuse Germany with Holland, you know, it happens sometimes  :P ;)
