Axver dares to adventure to church.

Happy 45th birthday to the oldest member of U2, Lord Adam Clayton, bassist extraordinaire and all round definition of both cool and posh. Happy birthday to the man behind the (second) Gloria solo, the bleak atmosphere of Exit, the ownership of A Man And A Woman, and all kinds of other wonderful work.

I went to church for the first time ever today. Good but not great. Singing hymns in a church actually seems right, even though my kind of hymn is more I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For or Yahweh or Mofo or Wake Up Dead Man or Gloria. Felt a bit social for my liking, but the people were friendly in the sense that doesn't make me want to run for the hills and hide in a cave. Kept imagining playing Until The End Of The World and doing mimickry of Bono and Edge's bullfight in the aisles during the service, though. Some church should do that some day. Sure, hymns are nice and all that, but c'moooon:

In my dreams I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows, they learnt to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out to the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait until the end of the world

Then insert Edge chasing Bono while playing the solo and the bullfight being conducted in the middle of the congregation. Though Bono's yells of "tart it up!" and "is this rock and roll? You want rock and roll?" might be a tad inappropriate ...

Though I damn well do want rock and roll! Bring on 24 May!
