Title: The Plan 2011: A month of Bono
Post by: Belisama on April 10, 2011, 03:50:48 PM
Well folks it is that time of year again. . . As you may have noticed, Monica and I have been working on The Plan. Well here it is!

For those of you who weren't on the Forum a year ago, last year we ran the First Annual Bono Plan with much success.

In honor of the object of our worship our favorite band member, we are opening this Month of Bono thread.  We will run a theme a day and are inviting everyone to "host/suggest" a theme/day where anyone can post.  We were offering to be the Go To's because of Monica's massive PB account and well, because we did it last year. Anyone on the forum is also welcome to host/suggest (via PM), we just wanted to get the ball rolling. We will begin officially tomorrow.

Actual dates and themes are on a first come, first serve basis. We don't want anyone fighting over anything and there is plenty of Bono to go around. (Oh, if that were really true!)

There will also be little surprises along the way so be sure to check in regularly to see what's new-- maybe a viewing party, maybe a special invitation only event where you must have proof of age to partake. ;) We hope you all enjoy celebrating Bono's 51st with us. We hope this year is even more successful than last year.

For those who want to check out last year's Plan: http://forum.atu2.com/index.php/topic,11271.0.html

Yay for The Plan!!!  The original one was what convinced me to join the forum in the first place.  Very excited to be around for this one as it happens, rather than catching up on it after the fact.  Must brain storm for a day to host.  That would be excellent fun!

OK we are going to start things off mildly-- or not depending on your Bono tastes.


maymay selected our theme today and I felt it fitting. We kicked last year's Plan off with a tribute to baby Bono so in a similar vein, se are kicking this year's Plan off with a tribute to Bono's Baby Blues. Seriously, I think the real reason this man wears the shades is to protect us mere mortals from the hypnotic effect of those gorgeous blue eyes. He never gets enough credit for them.


So to brighten your Monday--

Good morning Bonophiles, welcome to my first day hosting The Plan!

In honor of my great success in pretending to be a lawyer yesterday, today will be Bono celebrating with my absolute favorite beverage ever! And I might actually sacrifice a few bucks and buy myself a bottle today since I'm off today and tomorrow. ;)

The only reason it took me that long was because I was in court all day then had to go in and close last night! But don't worry, it's not the last time we'll see it or one of it's many variations. ;)

Why is Bono like champagne?


He is bubbly.
He improves with age.
He is good for when you want to celebrate or commiserate.
He always has a Pop.
Women love him and he goes straight to their heads and makes them think about things they normally wouldn't do.





Feel free to add your own thoughts to this.

I have trouble getting to even be in the general area of either of them.

Bills + oil change + crappy paycheck = No champagne. :(

And we all know what happened in Atlanta THE WHOLE DAMN NIGHT! >:(

Good morning, Bonophiles!

Today we have our first Guest Host in The Plan. CherryYouDanceWithMe will be taking over for the day. I will let her reveal the topic, but it is a good one.


Cherry, I know Bono is in good hands!

Post by: CherryYouDanceWithMe on April 13, 2011, 06:42:49 AM
*also snickers*

Good Morning! The topic for today is         "Bono's Lyrical Triumphs!"


What always inspires me about Bono's lyrics is that he never set out to be a lyricist. He wasn't one of those "arty" kids in school who was always writing in a journal or sketching in a notebook. But I do believe it was his destiny- I mean, read the lyrics on the album Boy. These from a person who really had no experience writing.

"And in the daylight, a blackbird makes a violent sight. And when she is done, she sleeps beside the one." -An Cat Dubh

In U2 by U2 Bono writes, "I found I didn't really like writing lyrics. I didn't listen to songs for their words, particularly. I was interested in ideas and I couldn't concentrate on the details."  Well, even almost thirty years later, people still complain that his lyrics seem unfinished. But Bono is also the first to admit that in the years that followed, he began to read more than he ever did before and hone his writing skills. He did find a passion for writing and found that it was something that made him proud.

During the recording of The Unforgettable Fire Album, I believe Bono discovered a lyrical technique that would serve him well in years to come. It was unihibited train-of-thought writing that can be a great tool for any writer to practice. But Bono is quoted in U2: Into The Heart by Niall Stokes as saying, "I see the rythm of words as being important. They build up slowly and often I do not think its ready yet-though everyone else may think it is, I can't let go. That's why a lot of the songs tend to be sketches..." And in U2 by U2 he adds, "...and so I never finished great songs like Bad. Classics like Pride In The Name of Love are left as simple sketches."

And then there came Achtung Baby.  8) My favorite part of the Achtung Baby history is the story that the band debated heavily whether or not Bono should use the term "baby" so liberally in his lyrics. It was so sappy and cliche.... but I think you'd all agree with me that Bono gives the term an edge  ;D  And it became a term he never let go of.

"Baby baby baby light my way." -Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

I also love how Bono's lyrics are always changing. His songs are an organic living thing. Case in point, Out of Control from Sao Paulo. I love the new lyrics.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKwxO2n4i30

Bono has written everything- blues, pop, country, rock, soul. And some of them were better than others (lets be honest). But the thing Bono's lyrics have given me throughout the years is the tools I need to listen to them. They have taught me how to listen to lyrics. They have taught me that some are winners and some are failures. They have taught me that perhaps a lyric on its own doesn't mean much, but when it's cradled in a melody it can mean the world.

Finally I would like to give you my all time favorite Bono quote about his own lyrics. It has empowered me to write. "As I try to warn people, you couldn't get further from the songs than the singer. But I do my best!" -U2 by U2


Now its time to share your stories! What are your favorite lyric-related stories? What are your favorite lyrics?

Title: Re: The Plan 2011: A month of Bono
Post by: MarsGirl on April 13, 2011, 09:29:51 AM
YES!!!! This is why I fell in love with Bono!! I'm in love with words and the words to U2 songs are BRILLIANT. To me, a song must have both great music and great lyrics to be PERFECT. So many U2 songs are PERFECT to me.

I've said it before, and I know everyone's tired of it by now, but I love the lyrics to Walk On. I know that this song was about An San Suu Kyi, but for me, they are about walking through and overcoming my grief. ATYCLB came out shortly before my husband died and I've found that Walk On, through the years, has really brought me out of some deep ruts when I needed it the most. I especially love these lyrics:

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like its a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back,
Oh, no, be strong!


Gah!!! Absolutely AWESOME. I said in a sermon I wrote for my church that I saw the "darkness" as the line between life and death that kept my husband and me apart... And daylight--hope, the strive to keep living and love life again--felt like a long way off to me in the darkest moments of my grief. My heart was broken... and I wanted to turn back--to live in the past and dwell and, honestly, just do nothing--but I couldn't. Bono's voice in Walk On was telling me to be strong, walk forward, keep going no matter how painful it was.

This song means so much to me. And I especially LOVE the version of Walk On found on U2 7. Those hallelujahs at the end--they are freaking perfect. When U2 played this song at the concert I went to (just a few weeks after my husband died) in Cleveland, Ohio, they sang the hallelujahs and it was.... ooooh, so wonderful. I have the bootleg and whenever I listen to it, I think of how much that concert helped heal my soul if only for just one night in that long year.

(I know I've said this all before so anyone who has already read this here or on my blog, forgive me!!)

A lot of the lyrics really resonate with me. Miracle Drug is also one of them... I was finally, in 2006, starting to come around to being fully me again, and this song revived me, picking up where Walk On left off. I loved the line: "I've had enough of romantic love. / I'd give it up for a miracle drug." (I've reached a point in my life where I dont feel I need to be with anyone...) And: "Of science and the human heart, there is no limit..." So hopeful!! So inspiring!! We can do anything in this world if we have the ambition to do so. So get up, go out, be the change you wish to see in the world!

Thanks for the story MarsGirl. I hadn't read your story before. It was very moving. And reading those lyrics to Walk On drive home even more how amazing of a lyricist he has become.

Let's see... celebrating lyrics today. Great. :) I have my favorites...

"I'll see you again when the stars fall from the sky, and the moon has turned red over One Tree Hill." That's my favorite line of all. So painful, and paints a beautiful picture. Also I like "And when it's raining, raining hard... that's when the rain will break my heart." :'( I adore the story behind that song, too. Hell, I just adore that entire song, as I bet everyone knows.

"No nothing makes sense, nothing seems to fit... I know you'd hit out if you only knew where to hit. And I;d join the movement if there was one I could believe in..." An amazingly relatable feeling in those lines. A feeling of having to do something and needing some kind of support, but just not knowing where to turn...

"She's gonna dream of the world she wants to live in. She's gonna dream out loud. DREAM OUT LOUD." How much more uplifting can you get? Those words always put a smile on my face.

"We are people borne of sound. The songs are in our eyes." That phrase- having songs in your eyes- is oh-so-romantic. It fits muscians and artists, when you can't seem to get the inspiration to stop... you're just so filled with song, it can be seen in your eyes. You have to give it life in music. Ahhh...
There are more, many more, but I can't think of many. Oh, MG, I love those lines too! That song was once my "song to listen to when sad". :D

I'm not sure how I'll sound in this, so forgive me. (English is my mother tongue, but it probably won't sound like it here and there.)

I just don't know where to begin. So many feelings, so much emotion.... and that's just my reactions! ;)

I am a writer myself. I'm someone who loves words. I read words far more than I eat food. I have so many books. I read so many things online. I listen to lots of music. I live on those ideas. I live for the chance to pull those sparkling ideas into myself. I live for the chance to make my life brighter, better and more peaceful. I long to quell the violence I know I hold. Beautiful words, ideas, and thoughts nourish me, They excite me far more than my own violence ever could hope for.

I adore reading, but music is my passion. Nothing carries the range of human emotion in the same way that music can...and does.

Words can be slippery things to grasp. Hanging words on human emotions is a task large enough to intimidate anyone. I think that's why there's room for so many lyricists and other writers.

Words, ah......they feel so small sometimes. Sometimes they feel too large and unwieldy...like your delicate emotion will break if you try to hang words on it. Or that words are too broad....and you need specifics.

Bono has a tough job (as do those who've also written U2 lyrics over time). But I'm glad he does it. I think the world needs those ideas, perfect or not. Sketches or not.

I think that, at least for this band, you can't separate words and music. They reinforce each other too much. There are unspoken words in the music, and the rhythm of everything. I wrap those songs around me sometimes...like a blanket or something.

So many songs shouldn't be comforting at all...but they are. I think it's the idea that I'm not alone. There's a lot of life packed into those words. There's crushing melancholy lurking, lurking in the shadows, but there's hope calling you out of the dark corners. Sometimes it's the same song.

This is my uplifting music, and I don't want to live without it. (This band. Just, just...there are no words!)

I love words, but those lyrics are made out of something more irreplaceable, more precious than words. I'm sure many other people have this gift, because I've seen it, but it's so, SO glorious to find it. People like Bono are in a unique place. They speak from a place so powerful that you can find yourself blazing with hope just because they do...if only in that moment.

I think it's also like sculpting something out of a piece of your own self. Even if you tell another's story, it's still your perspective. You are a part of the story. You are woven deeply into its heart. Maybe you become its heart, even if the story isn't about you.

I remember something Bono said. I can't remember the exact quote...maybe someone can help me? In any case...it was the idea that if the listener is close to the song, and the singer is close to the song, then the listener and singer are close together.

And now I'm remembering something else. I think it's another part of this quote, but maybe I'm wrong. The idea of that one was that if the listener and singer both sincerely believe in the song, then it's not cheesy.

It's a gift to be able to make yourself a part of the song like that. It's an eve greater gift to be able to do that as much as Bono does.

Even if everyone were to have that gift, I don't think it'd diminish the human experience one bit. I'd be ecstatic if everyone could.

Everyone here is so eloquent. Cherry, thank you for hosting today-- fabulous idea.

I will expand on this later (under the weather today) but one of my favorite Bono lyrics of all time is Yaweh.

To me it reads like a poem and is one of his best lyrics.

"Yahweh"

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes and make them fit
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt and make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul and make it sing, sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them how to carry
Take these hands, don't make a fist, no
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth, give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn
The sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Why the dark before the dawn

Take this city
A city should be shining on the hill
Take this city if it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it break

i agree, bono writes some great lyrics.  i like how he turns things upside down sometimes, and puts two otherwise opposite words right next to each other: "uncertainty can be a guiding light". 

the stream of consciousness thing - something i have a lot of respect for, because i write lyrics, but am constantly overthinking them, overcontrolling them, not letting them be themselves - but bono lets the words come to life on their own.  i'm fascinated by his philosophy about the sound of words being as important/more important to a song than the literal meaning of the word itself.  he's able to trust the song enough to allow it to show itself in due time without being forced.

i read something once about the multiple layers of his lyrics.  the author mentioned that the words/songs/lyrics are sort of like those trading cards you get as a kid - the ones where you see a picture of a horse, but if you hold the card at an angle, the horse becomes a unicorn or something.  the author thought bono had a knack for being fully present in two different storylines at the same time during a song - and the meanings of the words intertwine seamlessly so that both stories are portrayed, but no one in the audience is ever sure which story was the 'real' story in the song.  the man is amazing.

Wow!! Beautifully said and I totally agree. He could have wrote a song about An San Suu Kyi that was really specific... instead, it's open-ended... and because of that, I interpreted the song to fit my own circumstances. That's because Bono's lyrics transcend their original purpose.

As for the sound of words... I think he really did that well in TUF... that whole album is words strung together to fit the music... there's obscure meaning there... and it's all beautiful.

And, Beli, Yahweh is totally one of my favorite songs too!

There's a lot of power in letting a song be itself. I know I have to have that idea in mind when I create something. It must be allowed to be itself. God is maybe telling you something...um...making your art better..by changing it like this. If you let it happen, the results will shine more. If you grab it away, you have cheated your art... and yourself.

(It doesn't have to be God, but I hope you guys know what I'm trying to say.)

All, thanks so much for your posts about Bono lyrics. Again Cherry great idea.

I thin faris is hosting today but may be having internet issues. We'll give her some time to post and if she is unable to get on, we will save her idea for another day. . . stay tuned.
Title: Re: The Plan 2011: A month of Bono
Post by: Farisfan (polished stones) on April 14, 2011, 07:36:14 AM
Well, as Beli said, b/c of internet issues over the last several days (read no internet) I've not seen this thread before this morning. So, I am still reeling from the lovely "baby blues," the ideas conjured up by "Bono and bubbly," and the many varied and wonderful lyrics that are now swirling around in my brain.  Thanks y'all!!!

A disclaimer before we get started, I have been too verbose, but I LOVE these sorts of topics, so I am loathe to cut anything out.  So, feel free to skim or skip to the end. The topic for the day is what is your favorite Bono-related/ inspired/ founded organization?  What Bono org. gets your blood pumping??  And what lovely Bono-pics do you have of him with the said favorite organization?


Thursday—My favorite Bono Organization—
When Mon and Beli asked me to pick my favorite Bono (aid) organization, I started thinking.  But the more I thought, the tougher the decision became!  There are actually so many organizations that Bono/ U2 have been involved in over the years which have brought immense good to a wide variety of people.

Nevertheless, I think my favorite Bono-involved organization is ONE Campaign.  It started off as DATA (which was truly my favorite b/c it united so many of my loves under one organization).  DATA stood for Debt, Aid, Trade, Africa.  The idea was that what was needed on the continent of Africa was not a yet again another neo-colonial “save Africa” complex (or campaign) but fair practices which would level the playing field in Africa.  These included the “drop the debt” campaign whereby countries would be freed from age old debt often incurred under despotic and dubious circumstances.  The idea was that instead of paying millions of dollars each year on the interest of these debts, the countries would be freed from having to pay back this money and they would have more money in the system to be able to build up infrastructure and other necessary services. This “D” arm of DATA is now being carried on by Jubilee International.  The “Aid” aspect has continued on in a variety of ways which we know Bono supports (has encouraged): PEPFAR funding, Global Fund, Bill and Melynda Gates Foundation’s contributions, etc.   Trade—this is a complicated issue, but it has to do with giving people a fighting chance—leveling the playing field a bit in the sense of trying to eliminate some of the trade-related inequalities that foster the multi-national corporations but keep the little businessman from ever getting off the ground.  (I totally see Edun as fitting in here! Yaay for Edun!)

Here is the succinct Wikipedia summary of what DATA/ ONE are:
DATA was created for the purpose of obtaining equality and justice for Africa through debt relief, adjusting trade rules which burden Africa, eliminating the African AIDS epidemic, strengthening democracy, more accountability by the wealthiest nations and African leaders and transparency towards the people. In 2007, DATA and Bono were jointly awarded the National Constitution Center's 2007Liberty Medal for their groundbreaking efforts to address the AIDS crisis and extreme poverty in Africa.
Start-up funds came from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, financier George Soros, and technology entrepreneur Edward W. Scott.
In 2007, DATA and the ONE Campaign decided to join forces, and in January 2008, they formally merged under the name ONE. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DATA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DATA))

DATA and now ONE bring together a whole host of ideas about advocacy, equality and justice which are my driving forces in life.  I can not speak for the voiceless but I can try to create the circumstances and situations through which their voices can be heard!  And I feel like ONE does that.  I am so excited to live in a time and place where some of these issues can be brought to the fore and addressed again in the public market places! 
Thanks Bono!!! Thanks ONE Campaigners!!!

Post by: jabw10 on April 14, 2011, 09:47:32 AM
it is a tough decision, faris!  i do agree with what you said about one, especially how they're a great source of info on what's going on in the world outside of my own little life.
i don't know that i have a favorite, but i think the whole product (red) thing is ingenius.  for instance, just today, i stopped by an apple store to pickup a surprise ipod for mr j, and there's the (red) ipod... such an easy choice, and bit of money goes to the needy.  the foresight and savvy to find a benefit for the world's poor that is so simple and painless for the consumer - something where the consumer simply needs to be aware, and make a conscious decision with their purchases, is a cool idea.

Faris, I am so glad you highlighted One. I was wondering (no pun intended) if anyone had any thoughts about the criticism that One has not donated money to a charity-- I know it comes from people not understanding the real purpose of One, but would still like to hear opinions.


Also how many of us out here are members of One. I am.

And notice how many times I used the word advocacy!  ;D  (maybe I should have used it more  :))

But you are right Beli-- open to discussion and opinions.  :)

It was a really tough choice, Jab!  I almost went with (RED).  And the video link of Bono at the Calif. Women's Conf. is him speaking at a (RED) gathering actually.  I have the (RED) Ipod shuffle!  ;D  Hope your hubby likes his!  It is truly ingenious, but then one can never best tell what wonderful ideas are in that little Irish head of his!  ;D

I actually took the day off work to watch Bono on Oprah when Product (RED) was launched. I had a bunch of friends over to watch it. Stop laughing. There was this moment where he ran around to open her car door for her and one of my friends just turned to me and said, "OK now I get why you love him so much."

PURE WIN  ;D

I have only just got round to reading the last few posts regarding Bono's lyrics and his campaign work and all im going to say is that i totally echo all your sentiments! You can lust after any celebrity looks-wise, but with Bono there is more to it than just his physical attributes. Although we may never truly know the man behind the shades, through his lyrics and efforts to make this world slightly better, i can safely say that it is not just his looks that i find appealing, (although of course a bit of a perv is quite unavoidable) ;), its the things he does, the effort he makes, and the results he achieves. An inspiration and a complete legend  :)

Lastly-- what Debt Cancellation means to the people of Nima, Accra:
"I spent today in Accra, Ghana, in a place called Nima. Some people call it a slum, with people, too
many people, stacked on top of each other in a small space. Hundreds of thousands of people.

These people call it home, and
it’s a busy place full of life.

Words have a different meaning in
a slum. Home can mean a piece of wood,
pushed against a wall to cover from the rain.
A child’s bath is when your mother brings out a bucket of dirty water and
washes you in the middle of the street.
A mosquito bite can mean death from malaria.

One nurse walking means help is
on the way. Debt cancellation means you
get medicines that will save your life.

A nurse named Mary took me on a
walk through and deep into Nima, down snaking paths and endless muddy alleys to
get into the heart of the slum to visit with a local family to check on their
son. The cancellation of decades-old,
unsustainable Ghanaian debts helped to pay for the clinic Mary works at in Nima,
where kids get medicine for malaria and pregnant women get treatment so their
babies are born healthy and safe. She
takes Bono around the clinic, showing us where they see and treat mothers every
day. Mary often walks 18 hours a day,
from clinics to homes to churches to schools, visiting children and families to
bring life-saving medicines and her most incredible gift, her care.

Mary is at least 30 years older
than me and could probably walk me into the ground without breaking a
sweat. She makes her way through the
mud, and I’m amazed at how she keeps her nursing uniform and shoes so
clean. I think that she must look like
some kind of angel when she knocks at the simple doors of Nima, all in white,
with hope in her eyes and pills in her hand that might well save your child’s
life.

We walk by businesses that have
sprouted everywhere in Nima, people selling cell phones, equipment, food, water
in bags as there’s no running water here at all, a room full of sewing machines
where 10 women are earning a living.
People are working and not letting what surrounds them keep them from
getting up and doing something. People
seem tireless in circumstances that would make anyone tired.

Bono stops and speaks with
Jessica, a woman who owns a stand where she sells cell phone cards. She tells us about how she started her
business, the challenges and her hopes for the future. Bono says this looks familiar, it’s just like
the American dream-but now it’s also a Ghanaian dream. A dream of being able to have a good job and
the opportunity to make a life for you and the ones you love.

We’ve walked a long way and I’m
tired. Mary’s not. She’s ready to go to vaccinate some children
for polio, measles, mumps, rubella, just like kids in the U.S. We go to a
church down the street where the Nima clinic has setup a free vaccination
day. All the women waiting in front of
this Episcopal church for shots for their babies are Muslim. As we walk up, they remind me that we really
can all be ONE.

So our Plan is coming along nicely.

And today, Mon is hosting. And shockingly enough her topic is nothing like: Black Leather Bono or Thinks I Wish I Could Do With Bono. . . we'll get to those topics later in the month.  ;)



I will leave her topic as a mystery for now. Take it away when you are ready Mon.

Gee, way to make me sound like a shallow perv, Bels. It's totally true!

Today we will be looking at another of the organizations that Bono supports, and I had hoped to be working for, Greenpeace. http://www.greenpeace.org (http://www.greenpeace.org)

A group of thoughtful, committed citizens came together in 1971 to create Greenpeace. A handful of determined activists leased a small fishing vessel, called the Phyllis Cormack, and set sail from Vancouver for Amchitka Island in Alaska. Their mission was to protest U.S. nuclear testing off the coast of Alaska with a brave act of defiance: to place themselves in harm's way. Despite being intercepted by the U.S. Coast Guard, these daring activists sailed into history by bringing worldwide attention to the dangers of nuclear testing.

Today, they have grown from a small group of dedicated activists to an international organization with offices in more than 30 countries. But the spirit and our mission remain the same. The fight to save the planet has grown more serious – the threat of global warming, destruction of ancient forests, deterioration of our oceans, and the threat of a nuclear disaster loom large. Greenpeace is actively working to address these and other threats.

Sellafield

Sellafield is a nuclear plant owned and maintained by Britain's state-owned British Nuclear Fuels, Ltd. (BNFL). U2 was protesting the building of another Sellafield-type reactor and also the poor safety record of the current plant. Cancer levels are statistically higher around the Sellafield plant, and fears of leaks into the sea have been a constant discussion. Greenpeace, along with U2, was protesting its imminent operation, so the band donned radiation suits for the trip and photo op.

Mon, one of my fav U2 moments. Really well documented in the Flanagan book.


My fav alleged Bono incident was when one of the smaller boats was going out to sea to a larger one and there wasn't room for Bono and someone suggested he just walk across the water. Cute story even if it isn't true.

Here are a few more Sellafield photos:

To add on to faris' cause, I just got this in my Inbox today:


Dear ONE Member,
Great news today. The 2011 US budget that passed Congress last night preserves nearly all funding for key programs fighting poverty in the developing world.

The threat of Congress severely cutting these programs was very real. In fact, the budget that's currently on its way to the President's desk for his signature makes some of the most significant cuts to the federal government in American history. But we campaigned hard to make sure Congress prioritized programs that save lives, and now programs that fight HIV/AIDS, malaria, and hunger will maintain full funding.

Check out the ONE Blog for more details about what this means. And give yourself a pat on the back. Because of hundreds of thousands of ONE members working together, our voices were heard loud and clear on Capitol Hill and cuts that could have been devastating for the world's poorest people were avoided.
Thank you!

Sheila Nix and the entire U.S. ONE staff

Well at least I know a little more about the theme today, due to my endless Zoo TV research... I know a little about Sellafield and all...
(But firstly I wanna say to Faris that I checked out that link and found it surprisingly moving. Maybe I need to educate myself further on these causes!)
And here's a performance from the "Stop Sellafield" concert as seen on the bonus disc of Zoo TV... seriously, if I hadn't watched it I'd know nothing about Greenpeace and that particular protest other than a name mentioned.

Oh, you mean the one about Nima, Accra and what debt cancellation means to them?

Yes, I thought that was a very well written piece. 
It is totally true though-- the funds that come really mean so much.  I don't know if you saw my response to your comment last night (in my thread).  But the cutting of the various aid (in the US and abroad) makes such a big difference.  It truly does.  Ghana has just revolutionized over the last 10-15 years that it is incredible to me how much change has taken place and infrastructure there is here (which wasn't before).  Yes monitoring needs to take place but these funds really do make a difference.

(and an aside-- Nima I guess would be considered a "slum" but in reality, the people (in general) there have nicer houses on the whole (meaning tin roofs that regularly keep out the rain and don't fall down on them) and better and easier access to water in general than many of the rural places in Ghana.  (This is why well-drilling is so important.)  But Nima is definitely a slum in comparison to the rest of Accra-town.  It just struck me when we were last down there a couple of weeks ago though that if one found houses and water availability like that up north, it would be considered pretty nice.

I have not had much of a chance to get in this thread. It is wonderful  ;D

That shot of Bono above by our staffer Sherry Lawrence was amazing too!

I didn't get the opportunity to post on the day Faris did Bono's favorite organizations and causes. (RED) is certainly high on my list. I just wanted to add that in 2002  when Bono made a trip to Africa and met AIDS activist and nurse , Agnes Nyamayarwo, she was not well as she was HIV positive. When Bono learned that she lost her husband and sons to AIDS but still went from village to village to educate people about the disease, he paid for her and some of the ladies where she lived to get ARV drugs that were not available to them. The rest they say is history. He was inspired by Agnes to start ONE. He took her on the Heart of America Tour to show Americans the real faces of AIDS. So I would like to add Agnes' Mulago Positive Women's Network to the list. Even though it is not an official Bono org. , he made it possible for the ladies to be healthy enough to continue their work there and he has given them his blessing. So I will just add this to Faris' topic. Thanks!

So it's Sunday (the wee hours of it) and I'm sitting here in my pjs after a furious writing session (no, not slash, real fiction :P). I should be in bed because I have to greet at a 9:30am service tomorrow today and I was planning on riding my bike 50 miles to train for a 210 mile ride I'm doing in May, buuuuutttt.... I realize my responsibilities to this thread and I do not take them lightly.

So, without further ado, I gave you Purple Bono Day!!!

After all those wonderful posts about Bono's humanitarian acts, I feel a bit shallow and pervy. But, I suppose, it's someone's task to break all the seriousness with a little drooling. As you all are aware, my favorite color is purple, and so I'm sitting here in my purple patterned pjs, typing with fingers on which the nails are painted purple, contemplating all the beautiful aspects of Bono when he dons purple (also see my new AVI--yeah, that Sailor Mars one I had earlier lasted all but one day).

A man who can sport a traditionally female color is hot in my books. And Bono sports those non-traditionally male colors SO WELL. So let us appreciate Bono in all his purple-clad glory, shall we?

First, let's get this out of the way... I know you all hate this shirt, but I effing LOVE it.

MG thanks for hosting today in the thread, great, great pics. How can they not be?

I admit that most of these pictures were given to me by 4D. ;) I will gladly add to my collection any other purple Bono pictures people find. ;)

Shameless self-promotion, but it fits the theme. This was the order of service that was distributed to the people who attended my church the day I led the sermon on spirituality in U2 music.

A man who can sport a traditionally female color is hot in my books. And Bono sports those non-traditionally male colors SO WELL. So let us appreciate Bono in all his purple-clad glory, shall we?

First, let's get this out of the way... I know you all hate this shirt, but I effing LOVE it.

Awww im honored you said that  :)

I can't wait to host.  I definitely would host much earlier but starting tomorrow there's gonna be a bunch going on until May 10th or whenever my last final is around that date.  I have papers to write, tests to study for, Easter to celebrate, Yankee and Met games to go to, the NFL draft to go to, a girlfriend to visit over Easter break, a date or two with said girlfriend before the school year ends...so when I get hme and am actually able to relax, then I will proudly host  :)

Well I guess we have a topic today, courtesy of faris. . . . today's topic. . . Lost in the Sound Bono.


I will go with D. This reminds me of one of the best signature lines ever on the forum, thanks to The Unknown Caller-- it went along the lines of. . . "For the love of God, someone let him in the sound!" Brilliant.

I like A a lot too OAP.  Looks like he has his eyes closed and is just in another world.  I liked E as well b/c he's not only lost in the song but he's drawing the crowd in too, reaching out to them.

I love the recent one (from S. Amer.) where Bono gives a really cute grin to the camera just in the middle of him playing the snippet of Mothers of the Disappeared.  It is a really great look.  Had it as my avi for a while but you couldn't see the smile very well.

I like these two as well.

MG - these photos are making me impatient, too!  (and i have to wait til michigan  ::)) 

oh, and faris, i gotta go with A or B from your first sound set  ;)  in A, he's just too lost in the sound and it's absolutely dreamy.  in B, he's lost in a friendship, which is a whole other inspiring characteristic of the man...

(btw - gotta share a grocery store moment:  the checker dude started speaking to me in a very heavy irish accent.  then no accent.  teased him that i thought he was irish, and that he could intro me to bono.  he says "actually i am irish.  what?  does every irishman know bono, now?" 
i suppose they have a better chance than a girl in pittsburgh... (except, maybe, on july 26...  ;D ;D))

Good Morning everyone, today's theme: BLarry.


Although they seem polar opposites, Bono and Larry have a lot in common and their friendship cannot be denied. Both bonded over the early loss of their mothers and in the early touring days, they were often room mates. And yes, they look so good together.

I am not going to post a lot of pics so people can post their own. Also feel free to post any musings on BLarry-- but remember to keep it PG. ;)

For those of you on the card exchange you may remember it was my Halloween card. Might have to be my Christmas card this year-- who's been naughty and who's been nice?

My thoughts on Larry & Bono:

As different in personality as Larry and Bono are, they are the most connected on a deeper level. I believe this happened because they both lost their moms at such early ages. That really made the initial connection. I think Bono respects Larry's honestly whether it is what he wants to hear or not. They are also both very spiritual. So they don't see eye to eye a lot but I think they are connected in their heart and soul .  It is really a beautiful relationship.  

Sorry, I'll leave the photos to you ladies who do such an awesome job!  :D

SG I completely agree. I think that far more than Bono and Edge, Bono and Larry are the two opposites who really attract and compliment each other.  I think they have very similar passions and interests and what sets them apart is the introvert/extrovert thing. At such a young age Larry was strong enough to let another man "lead" his band and that could have only happened had there been mutual admiration and respect between them.  Rare is the friendship where you can disagree to the point of fisticuffs and still hug each other and share a beer at the end of the day. And these two have that in droves.

I love how in almost every photo,Edge has his hand on Bono's shoulder

Maybe he's helping Bono keep his feet on the ground, because otherwise "he's up with the sun!"  ;D



Was watching some lovely BEdge last night on the ZooTv extras-- some awesome BEdge, guitar, bubbly, and a girl with a "handicam"!   
OMG! I love that performance to death!
"And a woman needs a man... like The Edge needs a handicam.... when you're trying to throw your arms around the world."
:D :D :D :D
Yep-- that one!  Too great!

Thanks Bloom!!! So many good ones in there!  I love the ones of BEdge looking up into the sky.  Had to snatch the one posted just a little earlier.  When I saved it, it came up as being entitled: "cute couple"!  :D 
Was that you, EC!!??

Yes, of course, right, right, have to have a pink day. What was I thinking about... can't not have a pink day.  As if purple was enough?  (too much is not enough!)  ;D

No, this is like the incredible lead up to or celebration of Bono's birthday.  Last year it was 50 Days of Bono.  I am guessing this year it is 51 days of Bono.  ;D

We were a little later opening things and so it is just going until May 10th Bono's birthday. It will be about 30 days of Bono.

I know it is BAdam day but I just found a really cute BEdge kiss on this vid.  Had to share with those who'd appreciate it!  ;D
(oh-- it is around the 3:25 mark.)

 I spent days admiring that!

I have to comment again-- Bono has amazing thighs.

This cannot be repeated enough, Beli  ;)

I am seriously thinking of making it a theme one day.

Can't help thinking they deserve a whole day.

There is something about this tour and we have all commented on it, but for some reasons, Bono cannot stay away from Adam this time around.

Tell me about it!

THE WHOLE DAMN NIGHT!

Good morning, Bonoheads! Today we celebrate one of Bono's most intriguing characters, MacPhisto.  I have to admit that I wasn't all that keen on Mac until I saw these pictures.

That's The Horned One at The Vatican. It's bloody brilliant. When I found those I my blasphemous little heart skipped several beats and I was sold. So today we are reveling in the best piece of performance art Bono ever did; Macphisto.

Ahhhhhh the Gold Bono Love Couch. How I love it so. So glad it is scotch-guarded.

I have come to love Mac over the years and confess to owning a Macphisto ensemble, gold high heeled boots and all. I keep threatening uplate that I am going to show up at a concert wearing it. Then she threatens to stand next to someone else!

Below is my fav Mac pic. It was my Christmas card one year. Thanks for the fun theme today, Mon!

I was never a fan of his alter egos

OAP it took me a while to "get" Macphisto. I never considered the Fly a big stretch for Bono so I had no problem with that.

RnH24 really put it well when she pointed out that Mac was an outstanding piece of performance art- the fading artist. Bono was poking fun at his own future (Look what you've done to me!) and mercifully enough he has escaped it. Some of the songs in the Zoo Encore are never so poingant as when sung by Mac-- WOWY takes on a whole new meaning. I Can't Help Falling In Love is a beautiful tribute to the audience. And Lemon is especially lovely.

To me the big irony of Mac is that world leaders were nightly vexed by those phone calls from Mac and now of course they sit by the phone waiting for Bono to call them. Who really saw that coming?

Honey, if he could do that we'd be calling him Paul.


I just think he has so much to face the only way to do it and keep his sanity was to develop alter egos. Now he is older and has better coping skills and doesn't need them as much. I think that really came about with ATYCLB

I have always loved MacPhisto. I admit, though, that I didnt get the character thing at first... But now it makes sense ad I love it. I love how he harassed these world leaders and such.... it was poignant and necessary. That's my favorite part of every ZooTV bootleg--when MacPhisto comes on and makes a phone call....

Awww, OAP-- why?  
I don't really know, I just never got into it.  I feel like its a bit unnecessary
Of course it was unnecessary! That was the point of the whole ZooTV tour and everything related to it. That was what made the whole thing brilliant.
I miss frivolous Bono.

You and me both!

Yep!!!  Me too!  Now I know what I have to do after the kids go to bed!!!  ;D

EC-- thank you!!! That was lovely!!  And I do love your wallpaper there and SE's pic!

But no, you didn't post my "angelic MacPhisto".   Did you get my note?? I tried to send you the pic
so you could see the one I was talking about.  It is just a head and shoulders photo, black and white with him
holding a white towel and looking upwards and to the right.  Ring any bells?

Thanks for the lovely montage though!  Too much is not enough! (definitely when we're referring to MacPhisto!)

Love the clip! (And wow, I can't believe you're all awake at this hour... *hey, speak for yourself!* :D )

Greetings, Bonolovers, on this quite early Saturday morning. Today I am hosting The Plan, and we are focusing on… LEMON!
I can hear someone thinking "Oh, so she shose LEMON! cause she wanted to prolong MacPhisto day.." Actually, no. I have/had Zooropa on the mind.
This song was conceived when Bono discovered a video of his mother wearing a lemon-colored dress at a family event. It was basically the only video he had of her, probably the only image he had to go by of what she was like as a person. Y’know, Bono had forgotten what his other was like (despite her passing away when he was a teenager) so this must have been a very memorable event, finding the tape. It even inspired him to write a song. Add the sense of mourning for a person gone, a false connection with the video, and of course the essence of Zooropa- the media causing confusion is a main theme of it-, and you get a song which tugs at the soul with its detached feeling of loss.
I pretty much started out with this theme for one idea in particular- the LEMON! Video. Bono’s performance in the video is outstanding as he uses both The Fly and Mr. MascPhisto to highlight the feel of the song. The grayish/black and white shots are of pure beauty, especially in the scenes with the band spinning in circles. Not only do you get MacPhisto dancing like the god devil he is, but also my favorite BAdam scene of all time:

The song is hungry, the video is striking. For me I can really feel Bono’s loneliness and confusion about the media and his mother’s death. I read somewhere that after the video was made, Bono was freaked out by the way it looked and the ddirector was worried he wanted to scrap it. Fortunately Larry arrived soon and told Bono, “I think this is the most amazing performance footage I’ve ever seen of you,” which ultimately saved the video. Thank God!
Anyone have thoughts about this video and corresponding song in relation to Bono’s performance or lyricwriting?

Well Happy Sunday to everyone! I think we have really outdone ourselves so far with the plan. especially the past few days. We have paid homage to Macphisto and U2's most Oedipal song. . . . so let's keep pushing that envelope. . .


I declare today Open Chest Rosary Day. Enjoy!

First of all, LOVE this picture.

Secondly, I just have to say that my favourite thing about it is...well, my favourite thing about it is Bono, of course...but my SECOND favourite thing about it is the random hand that seems to be reaching out towards him. I keep picturing someone off screen having the same sort of thoughts I would be having if I were standing that close to Bono ("Must...touch!) and unable to resist the urge :)

It's better than Mars Girl. Which has nothing to do with U2! :) Except, maybe, for their tendency towards outerspace themes.

But it's my real life nickname.

Later, I thought, I should have used LightningWaltz. So I use that on Interference.

LightningWaltz is an awesome one too! I've used BlueSilkenSky and EnduringChill and they seem fine to me.

yeah, well how about that genius who used her initials and birthday for a screen name  ::) i wished i'd used u2-diva, so i put it on my car instead  ;) :D  i think i used that name on interference, too, but i seriously never am over there...

So today's lesson is that BonoGirls are not the most original or inventive moniker makers--  and the fact that none of us could come up with an original name, which should explain why Guggi named Bono.

So today's lesson is that BonoGirls are not the most original or inventive moniker makers--  and the fact that none of us could come up with an original name, which should explain why Guggi named Bono.

Nice way to bring it back around. :)

I do what I can. People should never name themselves or give themselves nicknames for this very reason.

I hate my given name. In high school my mother gave me the gift of allowing me to rename myself. I cracked under the pressure and kept what they gave me.

I firmly believe that there should be some sort of renaming rite when you become an adult. And at any other monumental change in your life for that matter. That way your name will reflect who you are now, not just who you were when you were born.

Still too much pressure. I would let others name me, but I for the life of me couldn't come up with something on my own.

It did take quite a bit of research to find my middle name. I kept Monica because even after the Clinton administration, I actually like it and it feels like me (well, Mo actually feels more like me but that's another matter) and I knew that I wanted to honor my grandmother so the last name was easy. That left me to choose another of my uppity ancestors for the middle name. Thus, Emiline.

I don't have a cool lineage like that.  :P


Should we start calling you Mo instead of Mon?

Hi everyone!  ;D
As Beli said i am hosting today and after yesterday's throwback to THAT mullet, i feel its time to clean the palette a little....
So i bring you the wonder that is Bono's smile  ;D That's right, the cutest, sweetest, gorgeous, illuminating smile that may not always be on show, but hell, we know how amazing it is  ;)
Hope you enjoy!!  ;D  ;D  ;D

*Warning: possible side effects include weak knees, hot flushes, swooning and involuntary sounds of "awww, aaahh or holymotherofgod!" If symptoms persist take a cold shower and/or lie in a darkened room*  ;)

I know. I love it. He can give me the finger any time he wants. :) As long as that smile comes with it and I'm sure he's not really pi**ed at me. I love a pi**ed off Bono ranting.... so long as it's not directed at me... LOL!! :)

Hello Bonogirls!!!
So, first thanks to everyone who's hosted so far, for doing an amazing job showcasing our man Bono.  For those of you who don't know me, I'm Jo... I'm new here but I've found my way to this delicious thread and it's one of my favourites.  Now it's my turn to share the love and treat you to some Bono pics.  Today's thread is a tribute to guitar-playing Bono....because lets face it, we all LOVE it when he says during a show, "...oh yeah, um, ...I think I might play guitar on this one"!! ;)

So let's get started with some VINTAGE guitar-playing Bono....with that babyface, did it really matter if he could play back then?!  He looked hot just holding the thing!!! ;D

We will get back to that picture later in the Plan. . .


So for today let's mix it up a bit. . .

What is your favortie Bono moment? You can post a picture, tell a story, whatever works for you.

I have two. The first is Live Aid. I always point to this when people tell me about Bono's ego. Everyone remembers Bono's leap into the audience, but even now people don't realize that rather than striking a musical moment for U2 he was really almost intentionally throwing the performance of their careers to save the life of a girl being crushed by the crowd.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_aid

U2's performance established them as a pre-eminent live group for the first time – something for which they would eventually become superstars. The band played a 14-minute rendition of "Bad", during which lead vocalist Bono jumped off the stage to join the crowd and dance with a girl. The length of their performance of "Bad" limited them to playing just two songs; the third, "Pride (In the Name of Love)", had to be ditched. In July 2005, the girl with whom he danced revealed that he actually saved her life at the time. She was being crushed by the throngs of people pushing forwards; Bono saw this, and gestured frantically at the ushers to help her. They did not understand what he was saying, and so he jumped down to help her himself.[4]
Let's go to the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zIW8qDPhos


My next favorite is the moment in Rattle and Hum where he convinces the docent at Graceland to let Larry ride Elvis' motorcycle. I just can't find the video from that. Please share you own favorites.

Post by: MarsGirl on April 28, 2011, 05:16:55 AM
I never witnessed this personally, but this is one of my favorite videos:

http://youtu.be/GDBLTXaEvFc

I can't help it, but I love anything where Bono and his wife are interacting. Or he is talking about Ali. I think that he appears to be such a good husband is part of what makes him so attractive to me...

Along the same lines, I love this interview... the part where Bono says, "She calls me ba-by." LOL!

Post by: CherryYouDanceWithMe on April 28, 2011, 07:59:16 AM
My favorite Bono story is told by Bill Flanagan in his book U2 At The End Of The World. pgs 326-329

The ZooTV tour returns to Dublin and Bono is apparently finding every excuse not to actually go home. After the gig on Tuesday. He parties all night, dragging Bill and a few others to diners trying to find one open at 3:30am (literally knocking on restaurant doors to wake up the cook). After breakfast they head back to the hotel for one more drink (which turns into several). Bono realizes he doesn't have a place to sleep so he calls the hotel for a room- all booked of course for the U2 shows. So he manages to find a roadie's room to crash in for a few hours. So Bill says he falls asleep for a few hours and then there's a knock at the door and "There's Bono still dressed in last night's clothes and pushing a vacuum cleaner 'Want to go to breakfast?' he asks..." Then Bono is reminded of a meeting stating "I guess there's no point in my going home."

THEN Bill goes on to write this, "Let's skip ahead twenty four hours to Thursday of the week of the Dublin concerts. You haven't missed anything, Bono is still coming up with excuses no to go home, he's still in the same clothes he's had on since he got offstage in Cork on Tuesday..."   THAT KILLS ME!  :D  :D
Title: Re: The Plan 2011: A month of Bono
Post by: CherryYouDanceWithMe on April 28, 2011, 08:01:13 AM
So after reading that, I ask myself, "why would Bono ask a journalist to do all that stuff with him? does he really just like Bill Flanagan that much?" And the answer is probably that Bono would drag anybody around to his little adventures, but most people know better!

Post by: MarsGirl on April 28, 2011, 08:06:09 AM
My dream is to party with Bono. I think I could keep up. :)

Well, maybe not so much on the drinking anymore. My tolerance has gone down since college.

But, man, I could party like there's no tomorrow.

I reason that would be a great night out, parting with Bono, but can we bring Larry along to please. I'm shure we would have all kinds of fun,drinks wise I'm shure that I would keep up with then,but better wear flat shoes so I don't fall down.

Well, happyme, you have seen that they were all partying together after Sao Paulo, right? :)

Gosh, they need to have a contest where a fan can win a chance to party all night with U2. God, I would love that. I even do karaoke so that would be fun! Bono can laugh at my ridiculous voice as I murder his beautiful songs. :)

i like the moments when bono is trying to heal people.  like the 911 walk-on tribute, or the superbowl performance of streets.  in those moments, when there is real hurt, pain, fear... he stands onstage undeterred, and tells you it will be okay... and it's bono... so you believe him...

LOL!!

Mars Girl: 16th of June, 9:05 doorbell rings, man at the door says if you want to stay alive any longer, I've got three things I need you to know. THREE.

Bono: Huh? I said three, not few, on the album?

Mars Girl: Yup.

:)

Oh, and so many more examples.

Bono: Is that how the song goes?! What?!

I will mystify him by reciting all of A Sort of Homecoming. Which he seems to always mess up.

Favourite Bono moments! I could come up with dozens....

Two come to mind immediately from the Live at Slane DVD...both are symbolic to me of Bono's generosity as a performer. First, There's a moment right at the end of Stuck in a Moment, where the Edge does his vocal solo, and the Bono comes in, but the whole time he's singing he has his hand outstretched, as if to say, "isn't he amazing?" Then, when the song is over, there are some people in the audience are chanting "Bono! Bono!" and Bono turns around, gives them a little smile and a wave, and then says "nice singing, The Edge". I love how he makes sure the Edge gets a cheer for his little solo at the end of that song.

The other moment is when he brings his daughter, who's only 10 or 11, up to dance for Mysterious Ways. I just love how he manages to find a way to shine the spotlight on her, while at the same time making her feel comfortable and safe on stage.

Slane is full of awesome Bono moments, come to think of it...there's also the way he dedicates AIWIY to Ali, "my beautiful wife", and I always love the bit during the same song where someone drenches him with water while he's walking along the outer stage, and he stops, looks at them, grins, and says "All I want is f*ing you, man!"
Title: Re: The Plan 2011: A month of Bono
Post by: MarsGirl on April 28, 2011, 10:11:47 AM
Launching off the Slane Castle DVD, I just love that version of SBS in there. I love the "put your hands in the sky, put your hands in the air, and if you're the praying kind, turn this song into a prayer!" The screams of "No more!" The listing of the names of the people who died at Omagh. Awesome.

I also love a good Bono rant. And there's nothing like the "F**k the revolution!" rant in the middle of SBS on RnH. Gah. I guess that goes under healing, right?

I get mad at the Tweeters who, reporting the set list on a show, express annoyance over Bono talking politics or religion. It's like, "Hello!? How are you a U2 fan and you DONT like this?! This is WHO the band is!!"

I love Slane Castle!  Listening to others' thoughts on that was so cool!  I love the whole of the gig-- he is so there-- emotionally and physically.  I would have been emotionally absent but the passing of his father seems to make him even more "there" (if that is possible b/c that is one of the things I love about Bono is how "in the moment" he is-- no matter where he is, the people around him tend to get his full attention.  I love this quality!)

But the a couple of recent fun moments-- I love his shout out to Accra at the Cape Town gig!  And I looove the way he played the snippet of Mothers of the Disappeared in S. Amer.  He got to the end of his little guitar solo and then turned toward the camera and just smiled that "pleased with himself and lost in the song" smile, much like the smile on Angel of Harlem on ZooTv. 

But I also really love hearing his comments or seeing him in various and sundry places around Africa! (of course Ghana is my fav!)  He loves people and it shows.  He is engaged in the issues and has taken the time to really dig into them in order to help as best he can and I love that about him.  It has inspired me in so many ways.

Beli, this is for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOC2nib5zNs

Now I will try and make up my mind on my favorite Bono moment. Or several. It's not an easy task because I don't have any one specific moment alreayd picked out in my mind!

(And now it seems that I have to go, so I'll be back when I get home, and probably with several thoughts.)

EC you are amazing. . .


and really how awesome is that moment. I am convinced the docent from Graceland  had that moment on permanent loop on a tv in her house. I know I would.

I think that was the moment Bono started to realize his power over women.

Hello lovelies :)i have have been busy today so this is my first chance to peek at the thread, loving the theme, but its so hard to pick my favourite Bono moment! Obviously big events like Live Aid stand out, but i also have a soft spot for his Golden Globe acceptance speech when he dropped the F-bomb...from that moment on i thought, he's the man for me!  ;D So full of joy, appreciation and exuberance, he just had to express it the only way an Irishman knows how  ;) hehe

I am not sure if I got this topic correct - to give a life defining moment of Bono's? I can say the day he visited the village of Kampala, Uganda and met AIDS activist Agnes Nyamayarwo was one.  It was that day he learned that most people could not have access to life saving ARV  drugs for AIDS which really did not cost too much. After he paid for Agnes' drugs, they became close friends. It was Agnes who really inspired Bono to start ONE and his anti-poverty campaign so I'd say that his chance meeting with Agnes that day was indeed a life defining moment. Look what ONE has done!

Thanks for sharing this, SG! Bono's activism has been a very important influence on how I look at the world too, and there are lots of moments I could cite...this is a great one. Others that come to mind are his speech at the California women's conference or the NAACP...both are great little snapshots of both his passion and his ability to bring people together for a common cause.

For me one moment that has a special meaning has to do with U2's involvement with Sarajevo. I don't know why that chapter of their history resonates so much with me - perhaps because I've been there and I lived close to that part of the world for some years, or maybe I just really admire the way they got involved in something the rest of the world was trying so hard to ignore.

If you know the story of their friendship with Bill Carter (it's pretty well documented in Bill Flanagan's book), then you'll know Carter made a documentary called Miss Sarajevo (for which Bono wrote the song). On the DVD of that documentary (which I have), one of the extra features is the film of the actual interview Carter did with Bono the very first time they met, before Bono knew anything about what he was doing.

The thing I love about the interview is that you can see an actual transformation happening in Bono as the conversation progresses. At the start, he's kind of guarded, not really knowing who Bill Carter is and just kind of giving him the usual soundbites about Zoo TV. Then, as Carter starts to talk about what it's like to live in Sarajevo under seige, you can see Bono start to get affected by it. Anton Corbjin talks about how he loves taking pictures of Bono because he wears how he's feeling on the outside, and that's so true in this interview. By the end, Carter is basically inviting Bono to get involved, and you can just see how much Bono wants to answer that call. Of course, this is even more amazing to watch knowing that Bono held on to that impulse and did try to do something, knowing how closely U2 got involved with Sarajevo over the next few years. It's pretty cool to be able to go back and literally watch the very moment all of that was born.

I hope some of you get to see the interview sometime! I tried to find it online but I don't think it's available.

Favourite Bono moments! I could come up with dozens....

Two come to mind immediately from the Live at Slane DVD...both are symbolic to me of Bono's generosity as a performer. First, There's a moment right at the end of Stuck in a Moment, where the Edge does his vocal solo, and the Bono comes in, but the whole time he's singing he has his hand outstretched, as if to say, "isn't he amazing?" Then, when the song is over, there are some people in the audience are chanting "Bono! Bono!" and Bono turns around, gives them a little smile and a wave, and then says "nice singing, The Edge". I love how he makes sure the Edge gets a cheer for his little solo at the end of that song.

The other moment is when he brings his daughter, who's only 10 or 11, up to dance for Mysterious Ways. I just love how he manages to find a way to shine the spotlight on her, while at the same time making her feel comfortable and safe on stage.

Slane is full of awesome Bono moments, come to think of it...there's also the way he dedicates AIWIY to Ali, "my beautiful wife", and I always love the bit during the same song where someone drenches him with water while he's walking along the outer stage, and he stops, looks at them, grins, and says "All I want is f*ing you, man!"

(have you visited my thread "your favourite 2 dvd?"....I could use the support for my love of Slane - we're vastly outnumbered by Popmart-heads and Red Rocks fans >:(...although I have to admit I've moved RR up into a near tie with Slane) ;D

We will get back to that picture later in the Plan. . .


So for today let's mix it up a bit. . .

What is your favortie Bono moment? You can post a picture, tell a story, whatever works for you.

I have two. The first is Live Aid. I always point to this when people tell me about Bono's ego. Everyone remembers Bono's leap into the audience, but even now people don't realize that rather than striking a musical moment for U2 he was really almost intentionally throwing the performance of their careers to save the life of a girl being crushed by the crowd.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_aid

U2's performance established them as a pre-eminent live group for the first time – something for which they would eventually become superstars. The band played a 14-minute rendition of "Bad", during which lead vocalist Bono jumped off the stage to join the crowd and dance with a girl. The length of their performance of "Bad" limited them to playing just two songs; the third, "Pride (In the Name of Love)", had to be ditched. In July 2005, the girl with whom he danced revealed that he actually saved her life at the time. She was being crushed by the throngs of people pushing forwards; Bono saw this, and gestured frantically at the ushers to help her. They did not understand what he was saying, and so he jumped down to help her himself.[4]
Let's go to the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zIW8qDPhos


My next favorite is the moment in Rattle and Hum where he convinces the docent at Graceland to let Larry ride Elvis' motorcycle. I just can't find the video from that. Please share you own favorites. gs. AHHH! I keep forgetting he's a singer for some odd reason./ ??? Well he's not the best but very, very good anyhow.
So there's my response for yesterday. :)
Hello... I'll get to today's topic after I answer yesterday's. I now have an answer (it's too hard to choose just one). Most of these would be live moments...
My favorite moment currently is Where The Streetrs Have No Name live from Zoo TV Sydney. It's a beautiful performance, yes, and Bono is so IN the songit's amazing. By the next song in the set I couldn't tsake my eyes away from the screen for ANYTHING.
Also on the same DVD, One. Another lost-in-sound moment.
And on a Zoo-related notw, thee performance of Ultraviolet on Zoo TV in Dublin. Or rather, that AMAZING apeech given before it. I know it was technically MacPhisto, but that doesn't matter... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmvgkt9Yuzk
Then I HAVE to put this- the writing and recording of One Tree Hill. Jeez. It's not cause it's my favorite song, it's cause the vocals were recorded in ONE take. Mind-blowing to me. That performance was spot on!
And on a similar note, when Bono introduced One Tree Hill in Chile and desribed it s "a song about the love of life and the fear of losing it." I don't know why but I really like that...
Lastly, I love it when Bono acts in soething, whether it be a cameo or an actual character. Even in The Million Dollar Hotel, where he just had to stand there, I thought it was amazing. :DHe should act more often...
Snd to be fair, my last favorite moment choice is every time the man sings. I keep forgetting he's a singer for some reason. :D Still, I love his voice so much, and the lyrics to U2 songs are amazing, so... MMMMMM.
And those are my favorite moments (and this post is REALLY messed up, I don't think I can edit it properly).

Gosh, they need to have a contest where a fan can win a chance to party all night with U2. God, I would love that. I even do karaoke so that would be fun! Bono can laugh at my ridiculous voice as I murder his beautiful songs. :)

That is what Bono is all about. He certainly would!

These photos are making me laugh! They are great. Damien's Shark is at the Met in NYC. My son took a photo just like Bono's there  :D :D :D   I love Bono when he is being silly. He is just as lovable as when he is being serious about his causes!
