this is the worst thing i have ever seen.
''I say to Bono that Larry Mullen told me he didn't think this was a religious album, But then, that Larry said that, with respect, he doesn't really listen to the lyrics.
"Or understand them," Bono laughs, "I'm gonna draw pictures for the next album."''
what a tool
a mole living in a hole
so so sosososososososooooo cliched and it sounds exactly like every single U2 song of the last decade. and those pathetic lyrics
so larry mullen can understand
I know nothing lasts forever. Yet every time I'm reminded, my heart breaks. Mr.Jackson, you will be missed. Thank you.

It's not knowing the answers that really matters, it's knowing the right questions to ask.

If you're scared, you're going to find every reason to not do what you know you need to do. With faith, you just do it.

History, like God, is watching what we do.

It's stasis that kills you off in the end, not ambition.

Why blame others for the problem you see? Stop, get up, and fix it. Take accoutability. Lead. Please, you are needed!

the opposite of faith is fear.

Those who let fear rule them want you to be scared as well. Don't listen to them. Be brave. Live a life that inspires.

Real faith doesn't try to control other people.

Make mistakes, there's nothing wrong with trying.

Didn't you know? It's always falling apart. That's why, in love, you take nothing for granted and keep building it up.

Big changes come from small steps. Mother Teresa was asked "How can you save a world from hunger?" she said "1 person at a time."

It's too often. We confuse "planning" with "doing". Great movements begin with foolish and clumsy fist steps. Begin.

The argument on who is most right in faith is pointless. The core is shared: we are to love. So love

The emergence and refinement of social media could be one of the greatest and quietest cultural revolutions in history.

"Despite Kenya’s unspeakable beauty and its recent victories against
the anopheles mosquito, the country’s still-stinging corruption and
political unrest confirms too many of the headlines we in the West
read about Africa. Ghana confounds them. Not defiantly or angrily, but in that cool, offhand Ghanaian way."
Answers on a postcard
U2 being one of the most popular bands in the world.
Their album sales have been pathetically average ever since those 'best of's' came out in the 90's. Someone wrote a great piece about it recently. But I can't find it rather annoyingly...
Even die hard U2 fans I know generally have hated the last 4 records.
And they hardly say 'NOW!' or 'EXCITING!' do they? Given that they also had a Black iPod dedicated to their greatness a couple of years back, it also smacks of blatant money grabbing desperation.
NOTE TO PEOPLE BUYING BLACKBERRIES: Buying a U2 endorsed Blackberry doesn't make you The Edge. Or bleeding edge. Or even edgy. Just a bit of a dick.
I read it online though I think.
So the people I was referring to are uncles, guys with NGages, co-workers, etc.
I hate reading about U2. They bring out the very worst in me.
It stems from my old job, where my boss once met Bono. He was a bit of a spoiled brat too, and they went for dinner up on the top floor of that luxury hotel Bono owns in Dublin. After a lengthy chat about cars and money no doubt (the only two things my old boss liked) Bono divulged that due to Ireland not taxing musicians he was rolling in it and asked him to look out of the window over Dublin. His words were, according to my boss, "I own over half of all that you can see".
3 weeks later Bono helped launch that Red campaign, a campaign that basically helped him, various rich designers and a credit card company get richer whilst giving the charity a pittance. You'd have been better off buying the stuff with a normal credit card and donating separately.
I changed my desktop wallpaper that day to "Bono is a twat". I then got pulled into an office to have a lengthy chat about why he in fact isn't.
God I hate him.
and yet still come across like a piece of shit??
Basically, all the work Bono and his chums do for world poverty/peace/domination is negated by the fact he pays no tax in his home country. By removing their money from the Irish banking system, they damage Irish based charity work and Irish government based projects that would help thousands of people in his home coutry.
Charity starts at home?
I took this titbit from the book by Marina Hyde: Celebrity: How entertainers took over the world
all you need is a 4/4 rock beat, a generic bass line and some plinky plonky high fret board guitar lines, only a couple of random notes, and sharped the fuck out of. then, just sing some basic 14 year old lyrics about roads and children and lights.

"RIM is going to give us what Apple wouldn't - access to their labs and their people so we can do something really spectacular."
their tour is sponsored by RIM
they have an ipod dedicated to them by Apple
and Bono's company Elevation Partners (it's named after what you think) invests in the Palm and the new Pre.
a monstrous prick.
The future needs a big kiss
Thanks for coming and spending the night with us in beautiful Dublin, for kissing the future, and more importantly for joining ONE.
You are now part of something bigger than a kiss, bigger than a band...it’s a big idea. It’s the idea that you and I together can achieve more than we ever could alone.
As the Arch made clear right before "Streets"...in the fight against extreme poverty huge progress has been made...but we need you to stick with us if we are going to finish the job.
Truly, we really do believe that our generation could be the generation remembered for turning the tide on deprivation...in its various forms, improving infant mortality through immunizations and access to clean water....fighting and winning against diseases like malaria and AIDS...beating drought and hunger...achieving universal education...
Get on your boots...
Your fellow campaigner,
