11:57 am - Its a beautiful day, Boston!

Since its all shiny-pretty-snowy in Boston, I figured some of y'all would appreciate some U2 in Boston. Circa 5 days ago.

2005-12-04 - TD Banknorth Garden

Please read
- I've encoded this from the original flac files to mp3 using iTunes. These are at 192kbps (the absolute lowest I will encode mp3s).

- While the request is not in the taper's accompanying text, please do not trade this MP3 version. Only trade lossless. Keep MP3 for yourself. If you'd like to get your hands on the lossless version, head over to u2torrents.com.

- When this runs out on YSI, it runs out. If someone else wants to be cool and re-upload it and post another link, you'd be a wonderful person.

7:36 pm - blasphemy

Right, so who was listening to the WBCN U2 ticket giveaway this evening? They asked who U2 opened for when they played the Paradise in 1980, and it was Barooga (courtesy of my U2 live book). I COULDN'T GET THROUGH! Called at least twenty times. And then they were like, "Nobody knows this so we're just gonna tell you! And we still have caller 14 on the line so we're going to ask them a different question." Then they asked the girl on the line which two albums should be removed from existence for the perfect U2 collection, and she said "POP... and then... um... Zooropa?" AND SHE GOT IT RIGHT.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD? I was so angry. SO ANGRY. I am not listening to the radio any more.*

*That is what I said when I didn't win the tickets back in May, but somehow I started again...

There is one $165 ticket left at ticketmaster for Monday's show; the opposite side of the arena from the stage, 5th row. I would buy it but I'm a bit strapped for funds and I'm going Tuesday night anyway.

EDIT: Gone now.

5:32 pm - U2 Custom Homepage

Hey everyone-

I'm running this new site called http://www.awesomestart.com Bascially it's a customizable homepage. It's got a google search, your favorite news links, a link to your email, and all that kind of stuff.

I'm making skins for all sorts of alternative bands. There's maybe 35 other bands on the site, and I'm doing more skins every day. If you go to the main page you can see which are the most popular right now. All the Saddle Creek bands seem to be up there right now, so we need to get more people adding Velvet Revolver page as their homepage. That would be awesome if it was no. 1.

Anyways, the idea for these pages is you can just make one of them your homepage. That way you'll have all the links you need everytime you open up your browser. And the page will look cool because it has U2 on it.

Rather than clicking on the picture above, though, I recommend you customize it first by going here: http://www.awesomestart.com/preferences.php

Let me know what you guys think! There's more coming every day. Oh, and please help me spread the word! If people could repost this in different places and tell your friends and stuff, that would be really cool.

Thanks for your support you guys. You rock.

There's something fulfilling, here in Boston, getting on the T and seeing almost every passenger with their copy of the metro, our Irish boys right on the cover.

I was listening to 2005-05-12 and just staring. I swear, the pictures sang for me.

5/26 and 5/28 are almost here.

9:54 am - Rumor: Bono Appearance

I heard a rumor that Bono will be appearing with Michka at Barnes and Noble at the Prudential Center this afternoon for a signing. Anyone heard anything similiar?


Instore in Boston

Looks like Bono is set to turn up
at Barnes and Noble in Boston this afternoon !

As we reported
earlier</a>, Michka Assayas, author of the new book 'Conversations with Bono',
is appearing at Barnes and Noble early afternoon today to sign copies of this

We have heard that Bono, flying in to Boston with U2 for three
shows this week, may also be planning to turn up to support the launch of his
friends book.

If you're in Boston, we'll see you there! (from U2.com)

8:45 am - To those brave fans in the GA line today

On my way to work (I work in Boston), I peeked outside the FleetCenter's West Entrance at 8:30am, and there, 100 fans strong, was a GA line. Its cold, its miserable, and I feel so sorry. I think I'm gonna bring them some hott coffee later today. I mean, how can I do work when the Boys are in town?

You guys are crazy and awesome! Today's wait is going to suck, but it will be worth it.

And in other news, the goal remains, at this hour, soul.

10:35 am - "Tattoo Boy right in front of you"

Just got back to Boston from the quick jaunt to Philly. The boys were hott last night. Anyone who's seeing them in Boston (i'll be there 5/26, 5/28), be ready.

Thanks to many of the awesome fans in the U2.com Members line for being cool, and thanks to all the other GA line members for rockin' it hard.

Finally, to the fat guy behind me in the GA who would not shut up, stop shoving his camera phone in my face, stop screaming into his cell phone during the closer while we were all trying to just feel the vibe, and finally not stop ramming his sweaty, excessively meaty body into, to paraphrase Larry, "I have two words for you...."

1:28 am - Are we excited yet?

Greetings fellow U2bostoners!

Now, before I get started, I have a question/clarification regarding the GA line at the FleetCenter. I dare not post it in any other U2 community for fear of getting flamed for not reading previous posts.

I have received two emails from the FleetCenter. Here are snippets from the email...
