You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on August 29th, 2006 01:07 pm (UTC)
It's not sad at all! Four's really good!

And honey? Would you mind cut tagging? It's really long to scroll down to see the rest of my friends list. *smooch*
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 01:09 pm (UTC)
EEK! My cut tag didn't work! Hold on....
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on August 29th, 2006 01:11 pm (UTC)
Hee! You'll get it!

And you know, that last show of yours was the best. By far.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 01:17 pm (UTC)
Got it! *satisfied smirk* Dominator of the lj tagging system = NV :D

Yes, I agree. I just wish I could've seen them on one of their first four tours, given I was listening to their stuff from a bootleg radio show off RTE 2 before Boy was released... But alas, I was still in highschool then, poor and without transportation and damned if I was gonna let my mother accompany me to a rock concert in Detroit! (Not that she would have agreed anyway, but... it was the principle of the thing!)
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on August 29th, 2006 01:24 pm (UTC)
It's a familiar theme though and nothing to feel bad over *hugs* We get them when we get them, and that's when it's meant to be :)
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 01:29 pm (UTC)
Yes, I suppose that's true. I'm lucky to have seen them as often as I have, actually, so... I'll stop complaining now. :D
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on August 29th, 2006 01:40 pm (UTC)
Hee. You're not the only one who's been unhappy over it. I'm fighting making a post.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 01:47 pm (UTC)
*giggle* I expect the only one truly happy over it would be the person who'd seen every last show. Heee.
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on August 29th, 2006 01:49 pm (UTC)
Nope. I'm thrilled with mine. Six for this tour but hey, that's how it went. I've no regrets :)
devourer of nations (or whatever's in your fridge): u2 - bono - shine like a burning starspicedrum on August 29th, 2006 05:24 pm (UTC)
I know it shouldn't be making me unhappy - someone on my friendslist did this, and one of her commenters said, "One of these days I'll be able to get tickets to see U2." I felt like a brat after seeing that, which is good because I am a brat. I really need to start living by this philosophy again: what you don't have you don't need it now. I'm too greedy.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 05:39 pm (UTC)
I think we all could benefit from living by that philosophy. I know I certainly could.
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on August 29th, 2006 06:38 pm (UTC)
I've already typed up the threatened post a couple of times, then deleted it all before posting. It's just, the unhappiness makes me think that the shows people did get weren't good enough for them. Like somehow it was less than good quality because the overall total wasn't more.
devourer of nations (or whatever's in your fridge)spicedrum on August 29th, 2006 06:55 pm (UTC)
I always think that if I'd been better at prioritizing back then, I'd have been able to hit some shows. Then I realize that my priorities were actually in order, and rent and food were a little more important than going to concerts, and I should try to stop thinking about it.

It's just that they bring me so much joy, and if I'd realized that back then, I might have been able to have MORE JOY. Or something.

You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on August 29th, 2006 07:09 pm (UTC)
Exactly. That's why I don't feel too bad about missing anything from Joshua Tree through PopMart. And I don't feel bad about before that because they didn't play where I was living and asking my daddy to drive me out of state for a concert would have been unthinkable. I finally saw them when it was time for me to see them.

When I was at my first show, it was overwhelming. Like "this is what I've missing for 20 years". But, the past is the past, you know? All I can do is what I can manage. I'd have loved to hit more than 6 shows this tour, but it wasn't meant to be. As it was, I traveled to Chicago twice and Cleveland once, hooked up with old friends and new, and each trip was the adventure of a lifetime. So I'm happy.
 Duracell Bunny: blessingsla_woman on August 29th, 2006 07:21 pm (UTC)
There's always next time. Seriously. That's what last year was about for me, sort of making up for lost time and not wanting to have any regrets.

And I know it's easy for me to say, but every single show is a gift.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 07:24 pm (UTC)
I wish I could have done that when I was single. Now I never will, at least not for many, many years. Stealing time away to go to even one concert is a challenge nowadays. But I'm glad you were able to do it, and that Claire could too.
 Duracell Bunnyla_woman on August 29th, 2006 07:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks, NV. Everything just sort of fell into place last year to allow me to go to as many shows as I did. I'd never been able to pull it off in the past and I don't think I ever will again, so it was definitely a "seize the moment" type of thing. It's an experience I'll always treasure and never take for granted, all the more so because I know many people dream of doing something like this, but can't.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 07:46 pm (UTC)
That's a great attitude.
 Duracell Bunny: state of gracela_woman on August 29th, 2006 09:45 pm (UTC)
Just counting my blessings. :)
writergeek313: badwritergeek313 on August 29th, 2006 01:54 pm (UTC)
Bad three times? In the five U2 shows I've seen over the years (and I use that term loosely, since four were in 2005), that's always been the one I've wanted to hear most. They killed me last year--it was on two setlists of shows I attended but never played.

It's become such a meaningful song to me that I'll probably just turn into a sobbing mass of goo when I finally get to hear it, but I still want to!
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 02:10 pm (UTC)
I know what you're saying. Everytime they've played it I've turned into a puddle. 'Course, in Cleveland every song turned me into a puddle...
writergeek313: IALWwritergeek313 on August 29th, 2006 02:52 pm (UTC)
I was in Buffalo the night before that show, on the rail outside the ellipse, right where Bono stopped and sang With Or Without You. Granted, he had some woman on stage with him, but there were guys all around me, so I know he stopped where he did because of me, which nearly made me melt.

The next morning when I went to the train station, I briefly considered heading west to Cleveland and hoping I could get a ticket instead of getting on my eastbound train home. But, I'd hastily left my kitty in the care of my landlords, and I had a hunch he wasn't getting the love and attention he needed. Turns out his food bowl was empty when I got home, so I'm glad I came back when I did.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 03:12 pm (UTC)
Too bad -- we would've loved to have you. A whole passle of us off my flist were there. Megs, Melissa, Ally, Joy, Izzy, and Claire ended up inside the elipse. Dawn, Barb, Andrea, Lily, Shannon and her husband, and I were all on the rail outside the elipse. But your kitty was glad to have you home, I'm sure!
 Duracell Bunny: beautiful innocentla_woman on August 29th, 2006 03:43 pm (UTC)
You have a JT tour show! *love*
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 29th, 2006 03:55 pm (UTC)
Heee. Yes. My very first U2 concert. I was up in the nosebleeds on the side, most of the way toward the far end of the arena, and couldn't see a damn thing. But it was wonderful, all the same. :D

Where'd you do that? Or did you just look up the info yourself? In anycase it was cool :D
