Apparently we had the name of the new album wrong.  It should have been "No Eyeliner on the Horizon."   :P

LOL that's given me the best laugh of the day!

Does your design look like a sun, Starfish?  On your upper arm?  (I can't remember which arm Larry has his tattoo on.  Darn!)

I just wanted to let you know that I spent the last hour and a half at work yesterday with a coworker perusing designer sunglasses on the internet to see if we could find them.  No such luck.  I'm not sure if they are Armani because they don't have the Armani logo, but I suppose that doesn't mean anything.  They are probably custom designed for him.  I guess we were just bored at work!  Good thing my coworker is a fellow U2 fan!

I appreciate a little guyliner as much as the next girl- when it's done blatantly.  Think Duran Duran.  I like Michael Stipe's.  (In fact, I used to have a huge crush on him, when he had all that curly hair.  Was most disappointed to find out he played for the other team.)  I even liked it on Bono on the AB album cover.  But at this age, I gotta say no.  Bono's a manly man.  Don't want to see him looking like an aging queen.  Quit messing around with Ali's Maybelline, Bono!

(And aren't you surprised Larry didn't cuff him upside the head and say, ' WTF? Wipe that s**t off, mate.  You look like a pansy.')

They are pretty much the Armani 9477, just the Armani logo changed to a star.  I would assume they are special made.  Here's a link with a photo of the Armani 9477.

Yeah, those do look very close.  You are probably right.  I am sure they are custom made for Bono.  I guess I didn't do that good of a job trying to find them  :)

Thanks for searching guys, and the eyeliner thread hijack!  :P

I guess we'll all find out soon enough, the company who makes them will release them to the public.

Sorry, that was my fault.  I guess I got a little off-topic.   :-[

:D

...and @ "guyliner" & "WOWE" too. 

Ditto on U2yooper - (And aren't you surprised Larry didn't cuff him upside the head and say, ' WTF? Wipe that s**t off, mate.  You look like a pansy.')
...He probably did but as if Bono listens!
