I haven’t eaten sauerkraut in over twenty years, but last night I had a small craving for it. After eating it, I don’t think I’ll have it again for another twenty years.
Jimmy Kimmel has Mike Myers and Tears for Fears for guests last night, for a moment I forgot what decade I was in.
‘Modern Family’ made a The Miracle Worker reference last night, and I have a feeling that went over the majority of its audience’s heads. I’m bet the water scene is the most memorable part of the movie. To my surprise, that movie has a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Funny line from last night’s ‘Survivor’ from a contestant’s father, “Wesley’s a good kid, he ain’t been in jail yet.”
Our local Hallmark store sent us as Christmas card that arrived in the mail yesterday.
For my fellow U2 fans that didn’t catch U2’s EMA peformance – MTV.com
I finally got around to reading the Rolling Stone issue with U2 on the cover:
The journalist compared Bono to Kirk and Edge to Spock, which really is a great way to look at their friendship.
One part of the article talks about the Edge working on a secondary sound and modified guitar part for hours upon end. Bono offered Edge some advice that didn’t really work out, but the next morning Edge states, “It was the wrong idea, but it lead to the right idea.” I found a major life lesson in that. Sometimes when working on a problem, what you think might be helpful doesn’t really contribute, but a good way to look at it is that overall, it helped you get to the right solution or destination.
Bono and Steve Jobs had a major falling out to the point “go f— was used” (by whom, it doesn’t say), but patched things up before his death.
I like how honest Larry and Adam are about their disappointment in No Line On The Horizon.
Bono mentions that when it’s all said and done, our loved ones will remember us not for our achievements and most profound moments, but for our least profound moments. I’d agree with that, when I think about my mom and dad it’s always the little things that I miss. Mom never used a fork and knife to eat her waffles. She buttered the waffle and wiped it across the small pond of syrup on her plate. Dad’s routine when he got home was to change out of his work clothes and I remember how meticulous he was hanging up his pants, making sure the crease was just right as he put them on a hanger.
Their next album, Songs of Experience, should drop in about 18-months. The idea is to have the indoor Songs of Innocence tour jump outdoors then the companion albums is released. I’m not sure what all that means regarding concert experience but I’m looking forward to it. One of the songs is about a dialog between a younger and older Bono.
“I see love as a decision not made in the heat of the moment. I see it as an enduring that that doesn’t depend on feelings to verify it, though it’s great when they do.”
Bono’s wife is a big fan of The Fray. They are with the band one evening and Bono toasts them ending it with, “In Ireland, it’s in every writer’s diary: Beware of the cradle at the bottom of the stairs. That’s all I’ll say to you.” I have no idea what that means and even Googled that phrase to no avail.
