how to dismantle an atomic bomb

finally got around to watching that SNL episode with luke wilson i *heart* him (leave me alone, jeanette... i'm html illiterate) and u2.

that was some funny ass shit... and btw, i want to have a threesome with the wilson brothers. i'll settle for just one, though. and then afterwards we can have a champagne brunch and i'll laugh and laugh because they're just so cute and funny...

uhmmmm... oh, yes. the post.

i forgot that i'd given u2's newest album a spin. i didn't think it was spectacular. i have every single one of u2's albums, but i wouldn't really consider myself a huge fan. but i do like them a lot.

i even like the in between albums when they didn't really sound like u2, like zooropa and pop.

sadly, they will never have another album like joshua tree ever again.

on the up side, though, this album sounds like u2... but not so much that it doesn't sound distinctive. (REM, anyone?)

i'm not sure if i want to give it another listen or if i want to never listen to it again. not that i dislike it. i just wasn't blown away. i guess i should give it another spin... everyone else seems to love it so... i have to find out what the appeal is.

It's not HTML, so that's no excuse. It's an alternate symbol and it's really easy. Do it with me now. Press the "ALT" key while simultaneously pressing the "3" key on your ten key (not the one above "W").

ALT + 3 = ♥

:P

i'm starting to realise that U2 with every new album are becoming a band that grows onto you.. so you have to keep giving the CD a spin every now and then.. enjoy!

S: i dunno. i mean, i've always liked u2 on the first listen of an album. well, almost always...

i'm just indifferent to this one, i guess.
