September 2011

If you missed it last night, here’s a little musical preview of our first podcast; enjoy~ http://www.youtube.com/w…

@U2log Hmm, I wonder if there is a reason why they are airing it after the watershed!

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

U2log U2: From The Sky Down will be shown on BBC One on Sunday, October 9th at 10:25pm bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01…

Dizrythmia @u2gigs in as much as it still means the Sydney show is included in this package, yes, I’m surprised.

I knew I was wrong! RT @tassoula: @u2gigs The Buffalo version of ONE is on the Best of 1990 - 2000 DVD.

@3213dev Yes; Ax is on a break at the moment but he will be back and finish off shortly

@beezee05 Not yet, but that is the plan eventually

4LP version has 2 discs of B-sides. That’s quite cool.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Also, perhaps the most unsurprising news is that the ZooTV DVD in there DOESN’T have TTTYAATW. Seriously, is anyone surprised?

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Looks like the AB Super/Uber DVD has the Buffalo version of One; correct me if I’m wrong, but was that ever aired?

people at TVNZ realized they had a problem. No music video was made for it, so they couldn’t show a video for the top single of the week…

EveryBrokenWave @u2gigs As those who know me will agree, my passion for Wikipedia and U2 is a great match for my number one hobby!

So U2 fans: how does your love for the band reflect in your hobbies?

Bono & Edge to play at A Decade Of Difference Concert, Hollywood Bowl, Oct. 15th, 2011 http://u2.gs/kM

 via U2gigs (Matt)

RT @ChristyRae75: Bono’s upset so I’m upset. I need a cupcake. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

CoachRocks @u2gigs @edgefest That closing statement is up to par with the “dream it all up again” speech. Hope they rise to the occasion. #THESKYDOWN

 via Twitter for Mac (retweeted on 9:01 PM, Sep 9th, 2011  via U2gigs (Matkin))

U2log If the songs remain relevant to the band, they will be relevant to us. Think not of irrelevance, but of the song that is within you.

 via Twitter for Mac (retweeted on 8:56 PM, Sep 9th, 2011  via U2gigs (Matkin))

RT @EdgeFest: Already starting with CTV news tweeting it as ‘the’ quote.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

@EdgeFest @U2log @wxander And probably distort it beyond all recognition too.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

RT @U2log: Don’t know if the tabloids are watching, but if they are they’re gonna jump on that last question and answer.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

RT @EdgeFest: On the edge of irrelevance. We all know now that will be the single quote from this presser that is used everywhere.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

MT @trojanchick99: Damn, the end of that press conference was pretty raw and unfiltered. U2 really is struggling with wanting to be relevant

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

RT @EdgeFest: MODERATOR GUY. WHO CARES if you have to be elsewhere. Bono was saying some really important shit that U2 fans need to know!!!

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

(I can’t remember whose idea it was, but I still think it was awesome. I look forward to it!)

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Oh, and I haven’t forgotten about the ideas for #U2360PRE; when my internet at home gets installed… ;)

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

RT @IamVal: Wow. That was kinda profound there at the end. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Rocket Man time. Bye for now, everybody! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Now if they’d only asked my #U2Monopoly question! ;) #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Thanks everyone for being with us for the interview today; just like old times, eh? #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Whether they can survive will depend on if they can still play the small clubs. And that’s it for the press conference #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono says he feels VERY close to the edge of irrelevance now. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono says U2 has dodged irrelevance for the last 20 years. Made some great work and some faux pas. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Some nights it catches his attention, other nights they just play it. The song (One) is very diverse. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono says he would counsel people before they play it at their weddings. Bono says it connects with SOuth AFrica, Bosnia, same-sex struggles

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Oh, it’s about what One means to the band when they play it today. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

That’s it with the Twitter questions. One from the audience, which I can’t really hear. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Davis wants to know if they like him. Edge says yes. Bono says like is a strong word, don’t get carried away. Davis replies with a fuck.

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono asks Davis what motivates him. Davis says he doesn’t like feeling safe. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Davis says U2 really believe in reinvention, speculates it is why they opened ZooTV with 7 straight from AB many nights. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Adds that the Fish out of Water mix is fantastic, and that he;s trying to convince others to release it!!! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

If you were to release a single from AB in today’s music world, which would it be? Bono: EBTTRT #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono needs a shave. Mind, so do I! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono inflates the Edge’s ego, saying he orchestrates the rest of the band and creates places for everyone else to fit. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Is Edge a perfectionist? Bono says “oh yeah”. Edge says he tries to be but isn’t there yet. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge says it was very close because it wasn’t a crash and burn, it was a breaking of the trust between them. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

On a scale of 1-10, how realistic was a break-up? Bono says very, adds that is Irish for 9. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Video flickering again now. And it was just starting to improve too! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Nope, that’s good. Ignore this tweet and the last one!

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Test test. Did the client just break?

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

U2’s music starts with a feeling; the movie is constructed to reflect that. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Davis: Audience starts the movie bringing a relationship with U2. Audio interviews attempts to keep the band raw. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Davis says showing them the rough cut was like showing Gore the rough cut of An Inconvenient Truth #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono nearly enjoyed it last night; not as indulgent as he feared, liked the wanting to unearth the creative process aspect. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono saw two rough cuts. First time was great but he was unsure. Second time he didn’t like it. Davis didn’t change much though. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono felt like he was being mugged, and didn’t realize it. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge: Davis could tell when they were speaking of when they were unaware. Everything in the film is them being honest. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Video did quite a big skip there. Jumped from Davis to Bono mid-answer. Don’t know this question #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Davis did sound only interviews with each band member with no time limit; just a convo and it allowed a good relationship to begin #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge says it’s embarrassing on the dance floor when they put on a U2 song and everyone leaves cause they can’t dance to it. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Have U2 ever finished a song and said they like it? Bono says Miss Sarajevo. Edge adds One. Bono resumes and says Vertigo is good #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono says that Q have commissioned Achtung covers. Jack White does LIB. Depeche Mode have a So Cruel cover. Patty Smith = UTEOTW #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

The Glasto video for EBTTRT will probably not be shown again, Bono says. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono says EBTTRT is a type of pop art thought. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge says every single song they’ve released they would want to change in some ways, which they do live. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Is there anything unfinished on the album? What is ‘Even better Than the Real Thing’? #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Adam looked like the Queen, Bono like Barbara Bush. U2 still have some trabants in storage (another question) #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono: Larry hated the idea. Edge took to it with a perfectionists’s eye. Edge chimes in that he looked like his sister. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

WHo enjoyed dressing in drag the most, Bono? #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge says U2 has no interest in making a comfortable sound. No more ATYCLB or HTDAAB I presume? #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono notes that it is frustrating for their audience when they go off-pace. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono says he would have loved to have seen the Clash now, or the Beatles who he describes as the blueprint of a band. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono says it was a self-imposed crapness because they were trying to make music they didn’t understand. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

“There’s a giant chasm between the very good and the great” - Bono. Says they were crap and great, without much very good #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono found the AChtung sessions a bit humiliating. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge: Taking risks seems to become a fruitful thing. Never more evidant than in Achtung. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge now talking about plane crashes, likening the pilot-co-ilot relationship is similar to a band relationship. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Davis says the film made him think about how his marriage has endured, describes it as a similar thing. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Bono surprised that #THESKYDOWN was chosen to open the #TIFF. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Lots of buffering. Hope we don’t miss anything. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Edge is happy with the way the phone turned out. Bono likes talking about himself. Who knew? #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

And there is video. Kind of. Lots of flickering. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Journos being told they can’t ask questions, only take twitter Qs. Won’t be happy the deadline has closed! And was that Bono singing? #U2TIF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

U2, Davis, and the moderator (Tom Powers) are on their way up to the… is stage the right word? Meh. I’ll use it. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Oh, the press conference is about to begin! If U2.com is right, that leaves 15 minutes for questions! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

So much for professionalism… #U2TIFF

@babetteross Hmm, that’s wierd. Try the TIFF website, I think there should be a stream there too.

 via U2gigs (Matkin) in reply to babetteross

Settle down children. We want a nice clean fight; these press conferences have rules, you know! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

“DON’T GIVE ME THAT LOOK!” Somebody is chewing out somebody else and sounding really petty too. “I’M CANADIAN! CANADA IS WORSE!” #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Oooo, one second of music! This is getting really interesting now! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

RT @ChristyRae75: I’m waiting for someone to say smthg really inappropriate not realizing the mic is picking them up #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Sounds like some action? People talking more loudly near the mic anyways. Are they journos? TIFF employees? The voices in my head? #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

I’m not usually a very fast typer, but I’ll do my best to transcribe what I can :) #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

SO if you’ve tuned in and can’t hear much yet, don’t worry. They’re just running late. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Turning the volume up to max, I do hear voices in the background - but it is just journalists talking amongst themselves. Waiting. #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

It feels like the last leg of the tour again; inevitably waiting for the feed to work! #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

“I see tumbleweed, ridiculous tumbleweed!” Can you guess what song I modified the lyric from? (Of course you can!) #U2TIFF

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Maybe this is why the boom 97.3 link said a 3 PM end; 45 minutes of silence while they get the microphone working first! #U2TIFF
