Heartland is such a beautiful song and I love it. Listen to it now. Download it. It's fantastic, truly. One of U2's best songs ever. I just can't believe that it was NEVER performed live. It probably wouldn't work now, but Bono's voice in 1987-89 was just perfect and they really should've performed this. Indeed, it's a true shame Bono's voice has had to undergo any natural change since the Joshua Tree/Lovetown heyday. Listen to JT/LT live recordings and it's just ... wow. Bad and With Or Without You on the Rattle And Hum video are mindblowing.

Seriously, the more I listen to U2, the more I like them. Their music to me is much more than music. I keep on meaning to write something about why they mean so much to me, and I have typed up some stuff, but I never seem to get around to finishing it. I need to get that done. Honestly, if they were just another band to me, I would not like them this much.

Perhaps one of the most interesting words in the English language today is the word 'fuck'. Out of all of the English words that begin with the letter f, 'fuck' is the only word that is refered to as the f-word. It's the one magical word. Just by its sound can describe pain, pleasure, hate, and love. 'Fuck', as most words in the English language, is derived from German, the word 'frichen', which means 'to strike'. In English, 'fuck' falls into many grammatical categories. As a transitive verb for instance, "John fucked Shirley". As an intransitive verb, "Shirley fucks". Its meaning's not always sexual. It can be used as an adjective, such as "John is doing all the fucking work". As part of an adverb, "Shirley talks too fucking much". As an adverb enhancing an adjective, "Shirley is fucking beautiful". As a noun, "I don't give a fuck". As part of a word, "abso-fucking-lutely", or "in-fucking-credible". And as almost every word in the sentence, "fuck the fucking fuckers". As you must realise, there aren't too many words with the versatility of fuck. As in these examples describing situations such as fraud - I got fucked at the used car lot. Dismay - aw fuck it. Trouble - I guess I'm really fucked now. Aggression - don't fuck with me buddy. Difficulty - I don't understand this fucking question. Inquiry - who the fuck was that? Disatisfaction - I don't like what the fuck is going on here. Incompetence - he's a fuck-off. Dismissal - why don't you go outside and play hide and go fuck yourself? I'm sure you can think of many more examples. With all of these multi-purpose applications, how can anyone be offended when you use the word? We say use this unique, flexible word more often in your daily speech. It will identify the quality of your character immediately. Say it loudly and proudly: fuck you!

(It's even better when you hear it - the guy talking in a monotone really adds to the humour in my opinion)
