October Edge

A mindless U2 entry.

Collapse )

Before that happened, I was actually planning on making a serious entry. I had it all thought out in my head, I knew what I was going to say, and it was going to be good ... then I got caught up in the joke with Edge and forgot the whole thing!

So instead, I bring you a poll. You are going to make up my mind for me, because I'm too lazy indecisive to do it myself. You see, I'm pretty confident that U2's new album will leak VERY soon. Magazines currently have it for review and we know what will happen next. So I've been posed with a dilemma. For a while, I've been saying that I will download anything and everything because I'm a U2 addict and the second something's online, I absolutely MUST listen to it. However, with the album looming, I've been imagining buying the album, bringing it home, playing it for the first time, and being caught up in its brilliance. I don't think it would be the same if I heard it beforehand. Then I thought about it some more, and if the full album leaked, I could download it, burn it onto CD, put it in my sound system, turn it up really loud, and enjoy the experience significantly earlier. I'm not sure what I'll do. I'm so desperate for new material, but I still want to keep 22 November special as Hut Dab Day.

Therefore, I will put it to you.

When the new U2 album leaks, should I listen to it?

Yes, go ahead! You'll love it.
No, wait until 22 November and savour it!

Bear in mind that there's a high possibility that the second something leaks, all my good intentions will go to hell.

I also need to be brought up to speed on the Darfur crisis. I've come to be well behind the news, which is disappointing and annoying, and the article in Time isn't as good as I'd like it to be. In any case, as far as world awareness and action goes, that cover story is TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE. They talk about the world dithering, and guess who was part of the pathetically long dithering? Major publications such as Time. The mainstream media has failed AGAIN.
