It shows how petty and misguided some members of Western society are that they rile against a free U2 album and not the ongoing damage we do to the planet, how society treats women, minorities and people who don’t conform to societal norms.   But yeah man, fuck Bono for even trying. Shit they could have given you all a free Robin Thicke album…

Is it too much to expect a little respect from millennials for one of the biggest bands in the history of rock, not to mention some gratitude for a rare gesture of corporate generosity? Who are these trolls and why do their hateful, ignorant comments keep popping up in the social media?

U2 deserves respect [x] (via issnane)

Getting a new iphone is sometimes bittersweet - I’m kicking to the curb my inseparable partner in crime of the past two years - for a shiny new plaything - but then I get my hands on the shiny new plaything… High-res

U2 - Giant Stadium - July 20 , 2011

- to the haters - your mind is blown by a “free” album paid for by Apple - your mind couldn’t handle real music and talent - so stick with your one directions and jay z’s and arctic fires - less people to fight to get tickets to the next record breaking tour…

Took my daughter to her piano lesson tonight and we stopped for pizza after right outside the mall - went in to find this - the new Apple Store - the second one in our area - grand opening tomorrow - on iPhone release day… High-res

Adventures in Preordering

So my plan last night in preordering the new iPhone was to stay up till 3am, quickly order, and then go to bed. In the past I’ve gone to sleep and then woke up early, but couldn’t really sleep and then couldn’t really go back to sleep. One time I over slept and I was able to get one phone with delivery on the first day, but the second phone ended up being a week later. I didn’t want to have to worry about that this time so I just stayed up. At 3:01am - the time preordering was supposed to start - the apple store wasn’t up yet on the computer. At 3:05 - same thing. 3:10, 3:15, 3:30, 3:45 - can’t order. I saw on twitter that people were having success on the apple store app, so I tried that and eventually got it to work. The first time I submitted my order, though, I got an error message that said I might have ordered the phone but something happened in the submitting process and to check my email for a confirm. Didn’t get one after a few minutes so submitted again and this time it went through - email and all. Delivery on 9/19. I then went back to try another order - just to see what the availability was and most of the combos were now “unavailable”. So it seemed like mission accomplished and if I hadn’t gone through all this pain then I would’ve been facing a lengthy delay by the morning. I finally got in bed at 4:30. Up at 8. Went online and the apple store was now working - and guess what - the model I ordered - 4.7 in white 64gb at&t - was now available and delivering on 9/19. The 5.5’s are all shipping in 2 to 3 weeks but the one I ordered? No problem. Of course. Could’ve just waited. Oh - and when I check my order with apple - that part of their site is down - so I can’t even verify my order is still ok. Quite frustrating. Of course I could’ve just waited…

Decided to stay up until 3am to order the new iPhone - it always sucks to try to get up after being asleep for a few hours - or to over sleep and found out there is now a 2-3 week wait for shipment…

Boy - what a day - being quite the Apple & tech fan and a most of my life huge U2 fan - this day has been epic - I took off work early in order to try to get a chunk of my bathroom floor done and to watch the Apple event - there were rumors about U2 appearing - which I posted about a few days ago - but also news saying it wasn’t true - well, I did get a chunk of my floor done - was blown away by the Apple event - was elated to see U2 there singing a new single - and shocked about the new album - what a delightful surprise - and it’s a great album - now news from Bono that there will be a “sister” album coming soon too - unreal - to top off the day I got to accompany my daughter to her violin lesson and her volleyball practice tonight - like I said - what a day…
