Title: You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when....
Post by: evel12314 on January 13, 2009, 06:56:16 PM
This one of the the best and funniest threads in the old forum - let's revive it!


You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when people at school that you have NEVER talked to know you like U2, and say something about them to you.

This happened to me today - my reputation precedes me!

You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when people at school that you have NEVER talked to know you like U2, and say something about them to you.

This happened to me today - my reputation precedes me!

Guilty as charged!  In the past an acquaintance of mine who I'd barely talked to and never mentioned U2 to them at all emailed me out of the blue and said she knew I loved U2 and was interested in borrowing a couple of albums of mine.  She's now a U2 fan! :)

You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when...

Your friends see your interior decorations and accuse you of U2 idol worship.  (Guilty as charged!)

The most mundane and random daily events and conversations somehow remind you of U2, and no one is surprised when you mention the U2 connection you have made.  (Guilty as charged!)

Your 8 year old starts singing "Lemon" in the vegetable section of a grocery store.

Your kids found out God's name is Yahweh from a U2 song, before they read it in their Bible.

Your friends come over to a party at your house, and before you even turn the stereo on they say "No U2!"

The only people who truly understand you are your pals from @U2 forum  :D

OMG - my kids have a running "Let's embarass dad in the shops" by doing this very thing...... grocery shopping every Sat morning I have a line of young ones behind me singing Lemon. I switch off at this stage but occasionally get brought back to what they're up to after a few glares from other customers!!

Well I get phonecalls/texts/emails/asked over dinner from friends and family as the "U2 expert" on U2 things I wouldn't know unless I actually worked for U2, like, when are they playing in Dublin next, and what time will the gig start at? How many minutes long will their next album be? Does Adam shop in X shop - I think I just saw him? (did you go up and get his autograph? why not? Oh you were texting me instead!) Usually greeted by fingers to the temples of my head, rubbing in small circular motions, close eyes and do a "hang on! hang on! It's coming through!" - works every time!

When anytime someone sees me listening to my ipod they sarcastically ask if it's U2...and most of the time it is.

When I answer questions or give advice in the form of U2 lyrics...and the person knows it's U2 lyrics even though I don't say so and they've never heard the song.

When someone looked up upcoming cd releases at work and immediately called me over to make sure I knew the release date for the new U2 cd...and I did already know because of @U2.

I used to be a baker, and I would ALWAYS be singing Lemon when it was time to make Lemon meringue pies.

You know you are obsessed when you start banking holiday hours as soon as there is a rumor of a new cd & tour. 
I've even traded shifts with getting the promise "if I need X day off to see a U2 concert, you'll owe me & you have to work it". ;D

You knit a pair of mittens in a nordic pattern in red and black because it reminds you of the last album.  And you stitch "U2" into the cuffs.  (I'm actually doing this.  My family thinks I'm bonkers, but it combines two of my passions into one unique pair of wool mittens. And it amuses me.  If anyone is interested, I may give them away to someone on the forum.  You all are the only ones who will appreciate them!)

Mmm...I would be able to swap you a lovely painting of Bono for those mittens. (I am a painting teacher, by the way...so it isn't an awful painting...but I've been looking at it since 2003 and have become bored with it.)

I think it is time for the "U2 craft exchange" thread.

However...to keep on topic...

You know you are an obsessed U2 fan when your boyfriend no longer allows you to reply to "I love you" by saying "I love you too." He insists you say "I love you back" just so he is clear that you are not simply announcing your fondness for the band but you are, indeed, saying you return his affection. Seriously. I live under this rule.

When you check this website everyday, even through the dry, no news periods, in hopes of seeing some news about the band starting back up, and recording new songs.  Man, those are some long, bland, periods!

When somebody says something to you, and it immediately brings a U2 song to mind, and without even knowing it, you are belting out U2 lyrics.  :D

When you have dreams, while sleeping, that you actually meet one of the members of the band, and wake up realizing that it wasn't true, and get pi**ed that you can't return to that dream! Please......... :'(

When you look for "Bono shades" every time you hit the department store, just for the heck of it!

When your friends know loads about U2 without actually liking them!

When you've "converted" one or more of those friends!

When you've memorized MacPhisto's speech, and recite it to yourself every so often!

When you know which live song you're listening to BEFORE they play a single note, because you recognize the crowd's cheers!

When you play an instrument because of that one solo in a U2 song!

When you swear you can hear Bono lick his lips in Beautiful Day!

When you know EXACTLY how many "babies" are in Ultraviolet!

You literally have no idea how many times you’ve seen the zoo tv concert film, but you know it’s many, many more times than you’ve ever re-watched any other film in your life. And, for that matter, if you were to list your top five films in order of number of times seen, it’s possible that they might ALL be U2 videos!

Oh are poor chldren. Brainwashing them with U2. But Im guilty as charged. And my dream is to marry a U2 fan. U ladies liking my pic over there? lol  Well I guess thats mine, using the U2 forum to pick up women. Im wasting my money at match.com. lol

Oh anthony02, you picture was admired a long time ago! ;)  I'm spoken for (darn!) but have I got a line up of smart, gorgeous ladies for you! The only problem is they live in the Big Apple. But the particular lady I have in mind travels all the time. I think long distance relationship to start is possible here. When I hear ladies say where are all the good men as they often do, I just tell them they are all U2 fans posting on the @U2 forum! Really!! I'm like the girl in the film Amelie-always trying to match make with the hope that true love blooms. Let me know if you wish ;) ;) .

...U2 plate on car, U2 tattoo on self, travel to another state just to see the 3D movie on an IMAX, teenager who can name that phrase of just about any U2 song - yup all the way back to Out of Control!

Earlier posts: either find a fellow U2 fan or someone who like them enough they put up with what you love - them and U2!

plate?  check.

tattoo?  check.

kid who can quote the band?  check.

travel far for U2 stuff?  check.

We should get married.

For the last two years most of the Christmas Cards in my livingroom are U2 cards & my family just laughs,

If someone notices U2 or Bono on the news or Tv they instantly tell me about it.

My sister, if we are together in the car, and Bono comes on the radio, she'll look over at me with a smerk and say "theres bono", your other boyfriend.

And being I live in NY, Bono is always around the city and although I live near Albany I sometimes wonder if he's around checking out the cooler spots, sometimes I see a guy who sort of looks like him from time to time...

If its a weekend and I'm having a few beers my oldest son away at college will hear the music in the background and say "what are you doing, listening to U2". I guess he thinks thats all I listen to. I do have a few other music selections but everyone thinks its U2 and U2 Alone.........

Ok here is one.....

...when you hear that Bono is auctioning off a pair of his sunglasses and you REALLY consider for a minute if you actually have the money to try and bid on them until you think it out that you really should keep that money for your child to go to college....

...darn that kid - you really want to wear a pair of sunglasses that the man you love has worn!!! I know that is creepy!

When you make U2 dice.

...let me explain.

Every day at school during homeroom I eat a sandwich I packed. Then I take the aluminum foil it was wrapped in and pack it into a cube. Then on each side I draw the following symbols: Joshua tree silhouette, zooropa baby thing, popmart lemon, heart in a suitcase, and bomb target. I've been looking for a 6th symbol for ages - looks like it's going to be an = sign now!

PS these serve absolutely no purpose but to entertain myself during the dull school day.

Awesome! This makes me think of another good one:
My fellow U2-obsessed friend and I were in Berlin (where the U2 metro goes through Zoo Station - awesome! We had our picture taken beside the sign!). Anyway, they were doing construction on the U2 line, so they had all these posters up to let people know there would be service interruption...and the posters featured a photo of one of those little lego men with a hard hat and construction overalls, and his overalls said U2 on the front of them. My friend and I actually had my sister-in-law go to the metro information booth and ask the guy (in German) if there was anywhere we could get a little lego U2 man! (Sadly, we were not successful)

...when your boss tries to trick you into thinking she met Bono when she was in New York by showing you a picture of her standing with "Bono" and you tell her that can't be him because his hair is much shorter now.  Before I saw the picture I was incredibly jealous, she had me going for a bit.  What had really happened is she went to Madam Tussauds wax museum and took a picture of herself with wax Bono to try to trick me.  Mean!   >:(  She was surprised that I knew he had just cut his hair, she didn't realize I was that obsessed!

...when your husband, who is not a U2 fan, calls you at 7:30 in the morning to make sure you are awake to hear the new U2 single.  He also calls to tell you that U2 will be on HBO for free for the inaggural celebration.  And has "Beautiful Day" assigned as the ringtone that plays whenever you call him!  Haven't gotten him to actually go to a U2 concert with me though.

Sometimes at work I'm listening to my ipod and cannot hear people talking to me and definitely can't hear the radio they have playing but I somehow hear anytime it's U2 and turn off my ipod while the song plays.  Once I was in a car with some people and they had the radio turned all the way down to talk and they thought it was muted but I still managed to catch the fact Electrical Storm was playing within a second.

Yes! I can do this with the Music Quiz game on my iPod. When my iPod was entirely U2 songs (my music collection has grown since), would play music quiz by pausing the music after the first note, and I would know the song.

And then your eyes hurt from wear dark glasses in a mostly-dark room.

And you find yourself unconsciously singing along with the guitar solo ("nyeoooo nyeooo nyeooo nyeooooooooowwwww....")

Last year I used the quote "we are one but we're not the same but we carry each other." That was my teacher's favorite quote from my poem. She thought it was beautiful. I had to tell her that it was a U2 quote, not my quote. I don't think she cared though. My poem was actually about Joshua Tree (the place not the album).

JT park is really nice. The actual tree on the album cover isn't there though. It was in the Mojave desert but it died. The did actually record there though. I checked with a park ranger.

I went to Red Rocks about a year ago. It was amazing, and that's the understatement of the century. I just couldn't get it through my head that I was 50 feet away from the stage where they had performed the famous "Under a Blood Red Sky" concert. Of course the stage was roped off but still!  ;D  ;D  ;D

That's cool. I'm not sure the exact location that the band recorded in JT but I was in the town and national park. The tree died because so many fans came and touched it and took bits of it with them. That's what the park ranger said at least. She said that she gets asked a lot.

Kind of. Not That Ali's ugly (she's not) but I remembet that, at the Elevation tour gig in Barcelona, a guy who turned out to be a member of the old fan club Alternativa spoke to me about Ali for about 15 minutes, telling me abou things he read that she was very beautiful and classy and deep and cultured... In the end I asked him "are you in love with her?" and realising, he ha talked a bit too much, he went "naaaaaaaaaah...". Lucky break!

When you and a bunch of other kids that are friendly with the school janitors get to go up on the roof of your high school, and all you can think about is taking a picture like the one of U2 with the background of Fez behind them. And there was even a kid wearing a light blue plaid shirt who could totally be Larry. And I was wearing a black coat and could be Bono. And there were at least two other people wearing black. If only we were all wearing sunglasses and someone had a beanie.

When I told my boss last week that if it comes down to seeing u2 this year vs not getting someone to cover for my --- U2 will win and I will quit my job. But another person offered to cover for me. I made her promise. Thing is since I have only seen them once back in 92 or 93 I plan on multiple shows this time, she doesn't know about that part......do they play multiple nights in Chicago?

If they are playing arenas in the States, Chicago will probably get four shows over five nights. It's one of their favorite places to play in the States.

There is a graffiti on the wall I pass by on my way to work. It says "One life, One love" I was wondering if it has anything to do with U2? The art is in white and blue, not colors that they use, and the phrase is in the wrong order. It's the only possibly U2 related graffiti around where I live and it always makes me think when I pass it by.

Possibly. Maybe the person just got the order of the phrase wrong! That's what immediately comes to mind and I've never heard it anywhere else...

That happens to me. People are always like,"Nice to meet you." I always respond with,"You too." I always have a smile on my face when that happens because half the time I'm really saying "U2" to them. Oh, the greatness of being U2 fans.

When you do a monthly presentation for the hospital you work for on positioning to prevent bed sores and for use of leg braces. We have these things velcro, faux sheepskin and steel things we put on pts that look like boots. I was looking it over tonight and another nurse said, "Why are you smirking?" I said ""because I just realized I could play part of U2s new song next time...."Get on Your Boots" to prevent foot drop....!"" Then she said why don't you play "These boots are made for walking?" "Blasphemy!--not a U2 song? Are you crazy?"...oooh I am excited....

Your 8 year old starts singing "Lemon" in the vegetable section of a grocery store.

Your kids found out God's name is Yahweh from a U2 song, before they read it in their Bible.

Your friends come over to a party at your house, and before you even turn the stereo on they say "No U2!"

The only people who truly understand you are your pals from @U2 forum  :D

Prize needs to be given  :D

Sounds a lot like me..

When you're still singing at your husband to "get on your boots' every time he leaves the house, and he's starting to resond with a deep sigh of irritation.  

I did that to my dad. He was leaving to go snowboarding, and then he ran back in the house saying he forgot his boots. I yelled "Got on your boots!" at him, and he said, "my snowboard boots?" and gave me a weird look and left. I don't know if he's heard the song enough times to understand why that was so amusing...

Yes! My cousin just asked me if I had heard the news about U2. I said "there's been a lot of news about them, so which story are you talking about?" And he said "That their new album comes out in March."
I was a bit insulted.
 ::)

And my alarm clock is ALWAYS a U2 song! And everyone else can just deal with it  :D

I know the feeling... Particularly when the line is something along the lines of, "Who's Bono?"

I've dealt with that question at least 2 or 3 times, and yet I never fail to feel a little nauseated when answering it...

That happens to me all the time. I told my friend I was listening to U2 and they were like what's that. And one time someone took my phone and saw my background (Bono) and asked who it was and then asked who he was.... such deprived people.

When you agree with them that POP is unfinished and disjointed, and that their remixes are better than the originals.

See I always make it a nice song, like Bad or With or Without You, to gently coax myself out of wonderful sleep into the harsh world of awakening. It's a nice way to start the day.

I always listen to U2 before I go to sleep or when I can't sleep... it's very comforting. I've fallen asleep with them playing too many times and then I end up having strange and wonderful dreams XD.

You buy books about the band as soon as they are released, paying full price, rather than waiting until they hit the discount bins.

My wife bought U2 By U2 for me as a gift and paid AU$75, which was the recommended retail price. A year or more later, the same hardcover version was on sale in the office book club for AU$6.

you raise your hand above your head and say "Achtung Y'All" to get your students' attention. You then realise what you have done and quickly scan the room looking for the student who is laughing in recognition. (I found one, too. I was really tempted to give him an extra participation point!)

Also, any time someone uses the phrase "you too" I always say "See?  They're everywhere." 

In the Starbucks drive-thru and they say, "Have a great day!" to which I respond, "U2 (You, too)," which is more than likely playing on the stereo!

When your kids tell you they're playing a U2 song at a sporting event on TV.

When you check @U2.com regularly for news and are delighted when there is some.

When you quote U2 lyrics at appropriate times and no one gets the connection.

When you quote U2 lyrics at inappropriate times and people think you're mental.  ;) "It's a musical journey."

When your ringtones are all U2:  unknown caller = Mysterious Ways, hubby calling from work = Some Days are Better Than Others, the gym where I teach yoga = Acrobat...

When you're waiting for your ice cream you wonder what the band members' favorite flavors of ice cream are. Then you decide what flavor each band member is. Larry is vanilla. the Edge is chocolate. Adam is strawberry. Bono is a mix of flavors.

For English class we had to right a poem in the style of Philip Levine's They Feed They Lion. This is mine. I don't care if you don't like it. I thought I would just post it.

They Elevated They Fly

Out of delay petals, out of burning passion,
Out of meaningful lyrics and deep bass lines
Out of the love of drumming, the mixing of songs,
Out of One, Seconds, Vertigo, Gloria
They fly elevated.

Out of the Dublin streets
Of mysterious ways, out of rejoice, out of love
War to Pop, out of sexy boots,
Souls wandering like confusing darkness, out of darkness
Out of the guys’ need to rock and the musicians’ to play
They fly.

Boy is growing up, being mature,
Changing ways, Boy is living in his rockstar way,
“Oh why, oh why!” From lost song,
From the rebel of Sunday to Surrender,
From the Unforgettable Fire and the Joshua Tree come
The acrobat of the Achtung Baby, from the 90’s,
They fly.

From the Atomic Bomb of the 2000’s
Come the atomic war of the horizon, from the flat ocean
Of the breathe the birth of Fez,
From “Walk Away” come “Will Follow”,
Come they fly from the magnificence of writing,
The Gibson Explorer that shreds the air,
They fly.

From my Apple TV and all my iPods,
From my shiny white laptop, they blare,
From my stereo pumping under the shelf,
They fly, from my car speakers,
From the earbuds dance to a tune, they fly,
From they kneel and they peacefully protest
And all that was sculpted slowly on the lost computer
They elevated they fly and they amaze.

my 70 year old mom went to U23D with me. Course she has known about them since I was young so she knows them by name (not always a great thing according to her). Twice she heard Coldplay on Leno and the Today show and thought at first from the sound it was U2. She called me at work, "And he was, he was jumping into the crowd just like Bono...then he laid down on the stage....ridiculous...it is soooo blatant" she said.  She got mad and said, "Will The Boys stand for that?"  Isn't that cute?  (no offence to CP fans....it was her words)

When after seeing U2 for the first time on the Vertigo Tour, every time you listen to City of Blinding Lights you involuntarily envision yourself at the concert and can't stop yourself from jumping spasmodically during the "ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo" part.

You obsessively do Google News searches for any news relating to U2, visit U2.com multiple times a day to see if the new site design is live, and visit @U2.com multiple times a day for any news/rumors relating to the band and the new album. :)

You stay on the @U2.com Forum so late at night that you begin to realize that every section of the forum that has any new posts in the last half an hour has your name attached to it.  In fact, your name is slowly taking over the forum right now. :)

You spend your Saturday night making your husband watch all of the U2 dvds that you own just because you got a new 50" plasma and wanted to see how they looked.  We didn't watch them all from beginning to end with the exception of Rattle and Hum and the Unforgettable Fire bonus on U2 Go Home, but we did spend a good 5 hours watching U2.  I think it worked though, he didn't complain and I asked him if he would want to go with me when they tour for No Line and he said "I might as well."  This will be the first time he has ever agreed to go to a U2 concert!!  I am so excited to finally share this experience with him.  ;D

We've been married 5 1/2 years but together for 10 1/2 years.  We actually met at a convenience store (long story  :) )  He has always "tolerated" my obsession but I think I have slowly started to turn him around....   :D  I really am lucky though, he's a great guy!  Although this was his comment when he heard the little snippet of the new song during the Superbowl commercial: "Get on your boots???  Sounds really lame."  He hasn't actually heard the song yet.

That happened to me yesterday  ;D During the Superbowl not many people were on, and then I basically just went on most of the threads and posted because I had nothing better to do. I watched like 20 minutes of the game, the U2 commercial, and the halftime show  :P

That's a regular in my house too.  Where you been, EdgeUK8?  The Old Ladies been missing your company.   :)

oh yeah, back to the question...

When you refer to people on the forum in conversation, and people look at you like you've lost your mind.  ("So anyway, Starfish and I were talking and she thinks...")   :D
Good one.

Actually I was in Belize, leading a class.  I have also been on the forum less a) being back to work more, and b) not wanting to spoil too much for the new album.  I am trying to avoid the inevitable "here's the whole album now streaming!" (some day we will log in and be faced with that choice) or "here's the design for the tour stage", so it doesn't spoil the surprise.

If you realize that your photos from Death Valley include a rock formation on the cover of the JT album (just to the left of Larry) - you might be an obsessed U2 fan.

The photo shoot for that cover took place in the Mojave Desert. I don't think it was in Death Valley unless Death Valley is in the Mojave Desert. JT park is cool though.

Yes, the one with the tree is somewhere in the Mojave desert (not in JT national park), but the regular album cover and the album cover with the squished faces were shot at Zabriskie Point in Death Valley NP.  For info see http://www.corbijn.co.uk/page_photo_black_u2.htm (http://www.corbijn.co.uk/page_photo_black_u2.htm) and http://www.u2faqs.com/geography/#2 (http://www.u2faqs.com/geography/#2)

Might as well post the photo here.  Compare with the spot just to the left of Larry with the other one.  The shots were taken from different angles, but that is the only spot there with that unique rock formation.

Post by: eurydice on February 04, 2009, 04:36:25 PM
Heh heh,

That's a classic assignment. I give that one to students as well. If you want some advice, I just need to know what version of Photoshop you are working with (the full program or Photoshop Elements) and I can get you to the Pop record cover in a few simple steps.

Title: Re: You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when....
Post by: evel12314 on February 04, 2009, 04:39:34 PM
Awesome! We use Photoshop CS3  ;D
Title: Re: You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when....
Post by: eurydice on February 04, 2009, 05:02:27 PM
OK, it has been a while since I used that version of the program. This should work.

You need to make your digital picture into a high-contrast black and white image. (You should be able to use the Treshold tool to make a modifiable black and white image and then set to high-contrast. Otherwise, the Help menu can give you direction on making a color image into a black and white.)

You then filter the image using the Posterize effect in the Filter menu. You have to "posterize" multiple times to get the extreme effect needed. Other Filters that you can test for effect are Photocopy and Sumi.

To finish up, use the Magic Wand tool to select the positive space (the black areas that make up the face), Invert select (directions are in the Help menu, if you need them) to control the negative space and select a bright color for a Fill.

Don't do math homework. Math is hell. I have no idea how I survived AP Calc last year.

I made myself the cover of Pop in Photoshop class today! It's all the same picture and I want to do it again with pictures like the ones on the real cover, but it was still really cool. And thanks to eurydice for telling me how to do it  8)

I love this thread because it makes me feel normal when I read your posts! (Offline is a different story!!) ;D

But it's so disappointing, then, to go into the "real" world and realize, "What? You don't want to discuss the pros and cons of the Pop era??? What's wrong with you?" It is nice to have a haven of sorts on here...  ;)

I've thought that before too. I can express my U2-iness here. That's why I love it so much and that's why it's addicting!  ;D

Thanks guys. I did my math homework. Well, technically I only did the odds (five problems). I think that's fine though because we're learning about slopes. It's easy for me. I'll tell my teacher that I was on here. He should be fine with that. I have a couple of things that I want to show him on here. This is one of them. I like the song Wave of Sorrow (Birdland) (sorry random...).

When you look at someone's iPod and they have a couple dozen U2 songs, and you say, "Oh, you don't have very much U2..."


Oh, this one's so true! And on a related note: Whenever I'm at someone's house for the first time and I'm scanning their CD collection, before doing anything else I just automatically check to see how much U2 they have (very easy to pick out because of the rainbow island logo), and if they only have one album I'm always a little disappointed in them.

For me, that would depend on WHAT one album they have. Boy or War? We're golden. Achtung Baby? We're good. Joshua Tree? I might not be stopping by again too soon.

TOTALLY! Not that Joshua Tree's not one of the most brilliant things ever. It's just that that's the "default" one that non-U2 fans seem to have...you can never trust that they really GET it if that's the only one they have :)

Back in the day, we used to call them "J-tefs" as is "Joshua Tree era fans". This went with my best friends' quote that "all the wrong people like this band now". I was always a believer in the power of U2-fandom to make them better people. I've never gone to a reunion to find out if that was true. I'd rather keep my delusions.

Happened to me back in high school. My pre-algebra teacher once asked if he could borrow October from me. I have *no idea* how he knew I'd have it in the first place. Geez. It's not like I walked around the school with U2 stuff written all over my folders and book covers, and was wearing U2 t-shirts all the time or something..  ;D

(Sorry if any of these are repeats)

When you decide to go to Ireland just to go to the pub at the top of the hill near Bono's house (even though you tell everyone you went for the scenery), and when you walk in and look around the bartender asks "Here to see Bono? He's in France."

When you're doing math homework you go crazy when you see U squared.

When in middle school you thought you were destined to be with this one boy who had the same Vertigo tour t-shirt as you.

When your dad calls you downstairs because a U2 video is playing on TV (even though you have it on your iPod.)

When you send multiple letters to U2 asking for an unpaid internship/job thing as a roadie/trival-job person for the upcoming tour. (hoping for a yes lol)

When you have so many different responses to this that you consider listing all the ones you can think of but stop yourself when you decide that you're coming off as a little too weird lol  :-X

TOO funny, but of course I could totally see myself calling my kids down in the same way.

If you ever considered even for a moment whether the "you don't know how beautiful you are" part of GOYB would work in one of those sound recording valentines cards.

When one of your biggest dreams is to walk through Charles de Gaulle airport eating a green apple

Yes!! I was so jealous when my friend went to Paris, and I told her to take a picture walking around that airport with a green apple. She didn't eat an apple but she did get cool pictures of the airport.

I always eat green apple on Beutiful day and fall on my bed like Bono!  ;D

This one of the the best and funniest threads in the old forum - let's revive it!


You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when people at school that you have NEVER talked to know you like U2, and say something about them to you.

This happened to me today - my reputation precedes me!

My youngest son just gave me a Valentine card he made in preschool and he drew a picture of me in a car with the radio on. He wrote a bunch of letters next to the car that I really couldn't make out. He told me it was the radio singing "Hello hello I'm in a place called Vertigo!!"  His teacher looked at me a little funny when I started hugging him and doing the happy dance! This is my son who was singing only Bruce Springsteen for the longest time (husband is a fan).   All I could think of was Hooray- I brought him over from the dark side!! ;)

You have to ask your tech savy Son to download the US festival clips from YouTube, convert them and burn them to DVD......

You practice your Bono moves and lip sync to their music when you are home alone......

You already own everything that has ever been released, but you still look in the U2 bin at the music store, hoping to discover some secret album treasure that you have never seen or heard.....

You try to convince your Christian music listening friends that U2 is still a Christian band and you even link them to the biblical song references HTML here at @U2.....

You ask your optometrist if he can special order your Bono shades with the prescription.  All is good until they call you back with the price.....OUCH!

You quote Bono quotes or lyrics in conversation and people have no clue what you are talking about.

You just can't believe that people hate U2's music because of Bono's politics and his arrogance (ie. "some people have way too much confidence, baby, baby.)

You are still convinced and defend against that Paul McGuinness and Co. aren't money grubbing whores like the rest of the industry believe....

Your kids found out God's name is Yahweh from a U2 song, before they read it in their Bible.

Your friends come over to a party at your house, and before you even turn the stereo on they say "No U2!"

The only people who truly understand you are your pals from @U2 forum  :D

When @ a family reunion or get together, you pull out your bootleg video of the U2 concert you attended and go to slow motion or pause to show everyone the brief frame that you are in the background crowd right behind Bono and the Edge during Until The End of The World.  The entire time you keep doing this and don't care and your Mother is laughing at you for your obsession and your Dad is telling you what a bunch of a-holes U2 is.  

Why are they A-holes Dad?  Because they are Irish, because they are successful?  WTF?  Nothing worse than bitter fathers that don't understand their kids.

You keep defending bono eventhough you know he's a c***!

What is up with the hostility? Nearly every post I see you in your comments are condescending, this makes you a troll, feeding off the reactions of those you pi*s off. Bono is amazing, name one thing which would make you believe he's a "c__t". Great way to ruin a topic, your intentions are pathetic, and if you're not going to contribute to this forum you should leave.

Well maybe because I'm younger and look at him as a father figure, rather than a normal man who views him as competition and a source for envy.

I should have included the word metaphorically... and if you can't comprehend my statement, perhaps you should reconsider being a poet, because it's rather obvious. Parents soothe you in stressful times, and make you joyful; songs can accomplish the same motive.


 >:(  :-\  :(  :)  :D  ;D

I'd also like to apologize for any statements which came off as brash.

Bono says "This is a song Charles Manson stole from The Beatles.  We're stealin' it back." as a joke on ZooTV Live from Sydney (which cracks Larry, Edge, and Adam up) before they play "Stay (Far Away, So Close!)". :D

You go to Best Buy to buy the single days ago....guess they didn't have it (yet?)but the U2 section looked ransacked. Anyhoo, at the end of the aisle they had a poster up of the boys on that big hill with the buildings in the background, and to the side it said something like, "Revisit the 80s--" and it had like Duran Duran and other bands. U2 had a slot but the label was on the ground and their slot was now empty. I picked up the label and replaced it. SO  I went back to the U2 section and grabbed what was supposed to be there (greatest 80=90s) and stuck them in there. Then I grabbed Boy, JT, and a few others. While I was back at the U2 section I straightened out their DVDS too, so they faced outward so anyone looking for 'that new band U2 with that boots song' would see their 'portfolio' of work.....I am a freak. I half expected security to show up or the manager with a job application.

What slays me is that it is always "that guitarist with the stupid name" and never "that singer with the stupid name"...no, because they all remember the singer's stupid name (see? I resisted saying the stupid singer's stupid name).

I've been through this situation (I was in dial-up for a few days)... But mine terminated at 50%. :P
I was seriously angry. >:(

When you get really happy over ordinary, day to day experiences that only you can relate to U2. Examples:

~When my phone's caller ID says "Unknown Caller"

~When, in mass they mention the phrase "Cedars of Lebanon" in one of the readings

~Whenever people say "Magnificent"

~When, at a pizza party, someone grabs a pepsi and says "I love pop" You shout "Me too! It gets unfairly criticized!"

I could go on and on

You go to Best Buy to buy the single days ago....guess they didn't have it (yet?)but the U2 section looked ransacked. Anyhoo, at the end of the aisle they had a poster up of the boys on that big hill with the buildings in the background, and to the side it said something like, "Revisit the 80s--" and it had like Duran Duran and other bands. U2 had a slot but the label was on the ground and their slot was now empty. I picked up the label and replaced it. SO  I went back to the U2 section and grabbed what was supposed to be there (greatest 80=90s) and stuck them in there. Then I grabbed Boy, JT, and a few others. While I was back at the U2 section I straightened out their DVDS too, so they faced outward so anyone looking for 'that new band U2 with that boots song' would see their 'portfolio' of work.....I am a freak. I half expected security to show up or the manager with a job application.

I used to do a similar thing in HMV. Every time I went in there I'd go to the U2 part of the album section and put the cds in chronological order (oldest to the front). I've stopped now because every time I'd return it'd be out of order again, and I'm convinced that was the management's way of saying, "We have an order for these cds, please don't try and make your own!"

We had a family friend over the other night, and SBS came on the radio. I (of course) was rocking out, until he said, "Oh, yeah, this is U2... They've got that guitarist with the stupid name..."  :o

Well, the only way to respond to that is. "Yes. They've got that singer with the stupid name, too." Then walk away smugly.

Or: No, you must be thinking of Motley Crue who's guitarist is Nicky Six or GnR's Slash

I have a huge long list of these...

A few favourites (hope these aren't duplicates):

+ You’ve started watching modern dance performances, because Edge’s wife used to be in a modern dance company.
+ You spend your spare time making zillions of U2 icons, backgrounds, and banners, so you can post them on online for your fellow U2ers to enjoy—or so you claim.
+ The *real* reason you make U2 fanart is so you can spend hours staring at Bono, Edge, Larry, and Adam on your computer screen, while listening to their music. :P
+ You think U2 hasn’t won enough Grammys yet.
+ You have a U2 lyric or quote for every occasion.
+ You spend a lot of time in front of the mirror, trying to get Bono’s poses from the Lemon music video just right.
+ You’ve taken to wearing your hair braided like Edge’s in the Rattle and Hum DVD.
+ You literally dream at night of being the person Bono pulls from the audience to dance, sing or walk with.
+ You spend hours online looking up obscure references in U2 songs.

Stay Tunned for: "How I happily faild the Bar Exam becasue of NLOTH, and the subsequent Tour"


Ah, the sequel to "How Eury failed the Ethic Exam (passed the Bar) because of HTDAAB and the Vertigo Tour"

Oh well, I like teaching...

When you blow your teeny tiny budget to he** buying the digipak after you've already gotten the basic CD. Excuse to friend "I don't want to keep moving it from the kitchen boombox to the player in the living room. Might hurt it."

When you hope to get stuck in traffic so you can listen longer to the album on the car stereo.

When you wake up to "Magnificent" playing in your head and actually enjoy it!

When you pull out your credit card bills to figure out which one has the lowest APR so you can get the best tickets for the tour.

When you start looking for a tour of Soldier Field so you can figure out where the best seats are for the second or third viewing. I'd never survive 2 GA shows.

I'm obsessed and loving it!

When you are truly thankful that your commute is 45 minutes long, though you still give yourself an hour so you have more time to listen to the CD.

When you burn the CD to your computer because you are worried that your CD is getting "hurt" from all the travelling (computer to car to computer to bedroom CD player).

When you drive through Joshua Tree on the way to work (yes I do  ;D ) and wonder where the tree is that is on the JT album cover.

When you get mugged while trying to watch U2 on top of The Clarence in Dublin and are mostly upset by the fact that you miss most of the music because the police make you go down to the station to make a report.

When U2 has become the soundtrack to your life. 

When you have a U2 song as your ringtone on your cell and when you decide to change the ringtone, it is only to another U2 song.

iPod: Go to "settings" then to "EQ" and there should be a list of options, and one of them is "bass booster." Hit the middle of the click wheel and there you go!

When you're listening to U2 and you start pretending you're singing a duet with Bono, and he likes you so much that he asks you to tour with them  ::)

I have to admit, that would be pretty awesome if it actually happened.  :D

Or if Edge asked me to play a guitar duet with him!

Of course, I myself cannot sing for my life, so guitar would be a little better.  ;)

Well I can't play guitar at all, so I have to sing, it will just be bad ;D But hey, Bono couldn't really sing when they first started, so maybe he'll find my poor technique endearing and decide to give me lessons  :D

That's cool, I wish my dad obsessed with me. Instead he's only being negative. Today in the car he says "So how are you going to get to the concert? I'm not going to let you use my car. How are you even going to get tickets, you don't have money. You know you probably won't be able to go, right?" -_- I really hope he was just saying all those things to get a rise out of me  :'(

I saw them perform at Irving Plaza, NYC, early Dec 2000, (capacity 700), right after ATYCLB was released. Awesome! The next day I flew to Deer Valley, Utah to ski some of the greatest slopes in America.

I left the slopes 3 times the first day, just to go to my room, and listen to Elevation, Kite, Walk on......
I knew I was nutz, but I didn't care!

I LOVE this music!

Yes, now I am a little embarrassed to admit that I am trying to learn guitar because I am an obsessed fan. During the 2nd leg of the Elevation tour while playing M & T arena Bono pulled a guy up on stage to play guitar with them (I've seen him do it other gigs as well). . . anyway, you can see where I am going with this. Maybe one day it will be me! Must learn all the NLOTH songs by the Fall!

They want to look "cool" and get attention, but they still secretly (or even not so secretly) also proclaim their love for U2.  It's called "talking out of both sides of your online mouth", i.e., hypocrisy.  They take positions on both sides so they can never be wrong.

Especially the bathroom...decorated in POPMART wallpaper, and a Bono hand-soap dispenser, and a discoball and shower with discoball glass tile.  and above the door to the holy throne is a sign saying "You Are Entering POOPMART". hmm..   :P

When, even though you never ask for a bag when you only buy one thing or something small (better for the environment :P), you ask for a bag when you buy the U2 Rolling Stone. It must be protected.

I'd never be able to do it justice either.

That's awesome! I'll have to make a special trip to the closest music store near me to see if they have an Explorer. I don't live near Guitar Center or any places like that so I can't just pick up Explorers everyday.

Does anyone know why Explorers are so expensive? Are they that much better, made out of expensive woods, or they just look cool? Way too expensive for me, but if I could get any guitar, it'd be a natural wood style Explorer, just like Edge. I also use that one in Guitar Hero.  :)

Are you asking me, Vlad?

 I've played acoustic guitar (country/folk) for 40 years and last December bought an Ibanez hollowbody electric. I have to confess it was U2 that spurred the change.
It's physically easier to play an electric guitar which is another reason I went for it. I can play several U2 songs well enough to perform them at a coffeehouse. The hollowbody is perfect for my fingerpicking style of playing.

When you keep wanting to capitalize "one" or put () around any part of a word that's spelled "red".

The other day I was at a get-together at a friend's house. There were probably 20 some kids running around the yard, a few boys same hight and same hair color as my 8 year old. I mentioned to a friend that I can't tell my son apart from the other kids at a distance, to which he replied "Are you kidding? He's the only one with a mullet?" Funny. I never thought of my son's overgrown hair as a mullet. Of course nobody thought anything of it...  ;)

I used to be a baker, and I would ALWAYS be singing Lemon when it was time to make Lemon meringue pies.

You know you are obsessed when you start banking holiday hours as soon as there is a rumor of a new cd & tour. 
I've even traded shifts with getting the promise "if I need X day off to see a U2 concert, you'll owe me & you have to work it". ;D

Watching the Gilmore Girls the other day and Lorelai (the mother) mentioned joining a group of English girls who were going over to Ireland to visit The Clarence Hotel. Before the other character even asked why, I thought, "Bono!" And, when she explained that they were stalking Bono, without realising it I actually thought, "You'd have had a better chance of finding him if you'd gone to the studios instead." That must count as obsessive, surely?

Ashleyisabelle, that is AWESOME.  The little Explorer is an especially nice touch. 
And Trillian, your Gilmour Girls comment made me remember yesterday when I watched "Yes Man" with my roommate.  At one point this lady shows the Jim Carrey character a cake she's made, and I yelled out, "It's Bono!"  My roomie (who is not really a fan) just rolled her eyes.

You can't see the number "33" without thinking of either Jeremiah 33:3 or "3:33 when the numbers fell off the clock face".

Thanks, Starfish! I really AM excited, it's just that, well, um, the U2 concert is sort of on my mind. ;D

We figure if she can't make the Chicago concert, we'll meet at the one in Madison, WI next year. She's got time to line up a babysitter.  It's up to the Obstetrician and whether or not I can get decent tickets to Chi 1 as to whether she goes in September.

Thanks again!

This happens in economics too - they name lines on graphs "U1, U2," etc. (U is supposed to be for "utility" - but I'm starting to think maybe professors are all just closet U2 fans  :))

how about when someone counts the amount of times you say 'bono' in a day, and the result at the end is 32?

or writing an entire essay on WOWY.

How's about when you get into a heated discussion on the board and you complain about it to your friends at work?

When Bono says to the audience, in the Slane video, "by now, you've probably all given us about 500 pounds each too, so thank you!" and you think to yourself, that's a MAJOR underestimation :)

HA HA HA. When I bought the reissues of Boy, October, and War in deluxe-CD format and on vinyl along with some vintage U2 material and it came to $501...I actually cussed at Bono right there in the store. The guy ringing my sale got the joke. (Bloom, it was Edgeboy!).

Awesome! (Did he actually get the joke specifically because he knew about Bono's speech in the Slane video? If so, I'm quadrupally impressed!)

when you get a new pair of New Balance running shoes, and on the side, it says NLock. Ever since that was discovered, they've been my U2/NLOTH shoes

When you're at the record store and you want to buy all of the U2 albums they have in vinyl even though you don't have anything to play them on. Then you decide you should get a record player just for them. I'll ask my friend if I can use their dad's record player.

When you make your students cut out Joshua Trees for your unit on the desert and then have them listen to the album while they do their artwork.  And you put a picture from the album behind the class pet's tank so it looks like the pet is in the Mojave Desert.

When you try planing out your year, 2 years in advance of the tour to make sure you can catch up to 10 shows on the tour, than realizing that the outside stadium tour is going to make seeing 10 of them harder since they generally play about 8 shows at the MSG in NY. This made it quite simple, now I have to take it on the road more than the 1 Boston show I make out to on each tour. I've already had to cut into my trip to Greece this summer, so that I can fly into Croatia to catch a show.  Now my wife of 2 years finally realizes what a big U2 fan I am.

Oh I'm sooo sick of hearing that! :D

When you name your house "Zoo Station".
When your brother goes through the house singing (to the tune of God Part II) "I... I... need a towel!"; finds said towel and goes to the bathroom with it crying out, "I believe in love! Towels! Love! Towels!" like Bono in that ZooTV interview... :D
