Being unemployed, the last few months I've spent most of my free time playing vinyl and reading comic books. By law of stereotypes, I think I have to start smoking pot now.

Yeah, and sorry about that whole "not getting laid" thing...

meh.  i read comics and play vinyl all the time.  no need to smoke pot.  now if you were in a band, read comics and played vinyl, then you'd need the pot.

Hmmm...interesting reasoning.

Meh, I wasn't getting laid anyway.

now if you were in a band, read comics and played vinyl, then you'd need the pot.

How about if I tried a few times to start a band and they always fell apart? Is that close enough?

And back to the subject... ;)

From atu2.com:

U2tour.de has posted details of the upcoming "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight" (grrr, shorter titles, please, Bono?) single. The tracklist is as follows:

1. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (Radio Edit) 3:48
2. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (Single Version) 4:13
3. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (Dirty South Club Mix) 7:10
4. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (Dirty South Radio Mix) 4:27

Four versions of the same song?!? If that's true, that's just plain depressing. No wonder their singles are selling badly. And if they keep going this way, pretty soon only people buying their singles will be us, i.e. the hard-core collectors who will buy them for obligation..

Sure about that?  This same approach was the only thing that gave "Magnificent" any chart traction at all.  As has been said before, I believe they're holding onto their unique tracks until they've committed to the track listing for the forthcoming SONGS OF ASCENT...

Or is it just me? But please, live tracks, videos, band monologues, anything but more remixes.. Cover versions may be asking too much.

You're right, they should at least try to find some live recordings worth publishing. What shows have they done lately besides the Somerville one? They did Boots at the Grammies and one or two other shows. They also did Pride and Blinding Lights at the inaugural party for Obama. I managed to miss all five nights that they were on Letterman, does anyone have a list of what they played?

What singles?!  They stopped releasing them for the most part.

Australia?  Nothing.
Canada?  Nothing.
Japan?  Nothing.
UK?  A 7" single which only the most hardcore fan would buy anyway.

That leaves Europe and this one single for the US since 1997...

At least they've made upgrading the discography easier.  ;D
