8 sometimes we rock n' roll


they played "ultraviolet."

really nothing more need be said, but i'll admit there was a yelp that scared everyone around me and a single tear of joy. yes, i cried in elated response to a cover band. but then i always do bring my earnest best.

we really admired faux bono when he sang, "i wanna feel... navy pier on my face!" navy pier has a distinct mustard scent. and a lot of concrete. and we wouldn't want to feel that on our face.

incidentally- VERTIGO will be in raleigh august 10th, so all you north carolinians better go. the cupcake accepts no excuses.

august 10th is on my calendar. marked in big letters. the real question of the night...how did he sing the "when i was all messed up" line?

really well but minus the f-word- but all the baby, baby, babys made up for it. must have appeared as though i was looking upon the face of God.

god's favorite u2 song...now that would be a list.

"one" would definately top God's list. since i'm deprived of personal radio airwave time, it did occur to me to call you and hold the phone up in the air during "one." but didn't think the stereotypical phone in the air bit could be rocked in a cover band scenario- though it might have just made the whole experience even more eerily authentic. maybe next time.

i think the happy dance i would have done if you had called and played me "one" by a u2 cover band over your cell phone...well, that happy dance might have changed more lives than we ever thought possible.

they're back at NP in july. i'm so there. phone in hand. prepare yourself (and try not to let the preparation inhibit the happy dance). it'll be even better than the real thing.

u2 is still a band?

speaking of a cactus where a heart should be...

mister- you're such a curmudgeon (despite all that i am, i am not spellsoline) in your old age. but you can bet your silly socks i'll be packing some serious youthful exuberrance at this upcoming shindig for the dread pirate dougO. there will be hearting all over the place. oh yeah.
