Devore III

Pros and cons.

Lately, purplicious has been spamming my archives, and in doing so, alerted me to the existence of an entry I had long forgotten about. I would like to direct you to some utter hilarity.

I think that will do for today. I was going to write about some observations from English class - I actually came to an insightful realisation in spite of the immense stupidity that surrounds me in that room - but I really need to get back to memorising the speech. I think I can do it. I should be able to have it somewhat done by the end of tonight, with a bit of luck.

Hee, great quote from a recent U2 article!

If you told me, when I first start listening to U2 in the early 80s, that some twenty years later, I'd be watching them play the BBC carpark in London, I'd have told you not to be so silly.

Of course, I wouldn't have believed you if you told me that. I would've probably said "My dad's bigger then your Dad". Though with U2, my band is bigger than your band. U2 are the biggest band in the world today. (Sure, maybe The Beatles, and Pink Floyd, and The Stones were bigger, but what have they done for you lately?).

So what the hell are they doing, playing a carpark, for Top Of The Pops? Christ only knows and Bono - depending upon your opinion - is either Christ, or knows him - so I'm sure all will become clear shortly.
