So I'm home today. I'm not feeling that great, physically or emotionally. Oh well.

Weekend to-do list, in order of importance;

- Finish SOR assignment
- Memorise English lines
- Study Maths C
- Study Modern History
- Study German
- Study Maths B

www.relivetheconcert.com has some really good U2 stuff. Shame I don't really understand how to use the thing. I was getting Bad from the Rattle And Hum video (my favourite song of all time) earlier when my useless bloody computer froze. GRR. It's taken ages to connect both times I've tried today. Very annoying.

I'm now not sure if I'll be getting a new computer in November. Mum's a bit hesitant about it. But I should be able to talk her into it.

I'm disgusted. The spiritual leader of the terrorist group Jemiyyah Islamiyyah, Ahmed Bakar Bashir (I might have his first name wrong ... bloody mental blanks), got sentenced to only four years for treason by the Indonesian court system. Why is it that Amrozi got death but Bashir only got four years? There's so much wrong with the Indonesian court system, and it's a bloody disgrace.

Dance with me

I have a new favourite U2 song. It's not Bad from the Rattle And Hum video any more. It's 11 O'clock Tick Tock from Red Rocks, 5 June 1983 (it appeared on the Under A Blood Red Sky video). IT IS FANTASTIC. Utterly incredible. And, best of all, you can download it and listen to it yourself at http://womanfish.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=1916 (I fear this link may not work because I think you need to be a member of womanfish.net to access this particular forum). I don't know if you have this or not, Sarah, but I highly recommend it, and Lauren, you might like this as well, and the same goes for anyone else interested in listening to some U2. Edge is absolutely scorching on guitar, this recording is equally as good as the UABRS video, and if you're wondering what the cheering is all about after the "Dance with me!" part and during the soft part between riffs before "Call out Your name/Call out in shame ...", Bono has actually pulled a woman out of the crowd and is dancing with her on stage. This is mindblowingly good. Forget any other version of 11 O'clock Tick Tock you've heard.

Anyone know a good website I can host my live U2 .mp3s on? I have some grand stuff I'd love to make available for download, just I don't know where ...
