Now, onto the supposed theft of U2's material. Reports have surfaced and are now spreading like wildfire, stating a CD with some of U2's new material has been either stolen or lost. This is definitely not a joke, because the band are being very serious about it and the police are involved, but it's absolutely perfect timing to generate major excitement and gather attention. Something just does not seem right. After U2's history of stolen lyrics, crashed laptops, leaked studio sessions, and so forth, they would not be foolish enough to let this happen again. There's something more to this, I'm sure. We haven't even seen recordings online yet, which speaks volumes - someone willing to steal a CD would not hesitate to upload it, I'm sure. A lost CD will just end up in the dump, leaving behind a lot of buzz, while ... something else would also generate stacks of excitement and anticipation. I'm not sure what to think just yet.
Whatever the case, comments by Dallas Schoo, Edge's guitar technician, make me feel very excited. Whenever it comes, it's going to be one awesome album by the sounds of it. It would be the ultimate way for U2 to enter the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, on the back of their third widely-accepted classic after The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby. I say 'widely-accepted' because I believe The Unforgettable Fire to be their greatest classic and masterpiece. At least it doesn't have a track to mess up the flow like The Joshua Tree has Trip Through Your Wires and Achtung Baby has Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World. If The Joshua Tree had had Heartland instead of Trip, as had been originally planned, it would've been perfect.
I love being me. Being an albino equals the perfect excuse to get out of horrible school sports events. Hurrah! There's definitely something to be said for some medical problems. Others rather stink, but albinism sure is great sometimes.
I also met my favourite teacher today, after not seeing her for over a year. That was really ... eerie, but great. Some people I truly do respect. Not many, but some.
Oh yes, and Mum and Alan have gone down to Melbourne for another Aussie Rules football game. I really have no feelings about this. They've gone away for the weekend. Yes. I hope they have fun. That's it.
