U2 – "Songs of Innocence"

At first I thought the album sucked. I listened again. I was wrong. It’s a masterpiece.

U2 2

I’ve never been “into” U2 for their politics, or social commentary. I could really do without Bono’s preaching in-between songs during shows. Sure, he does more than just talk, he goes out there and gets stuff done, stays informed, etc., but so do millions of other smart people. Big deal. What I like about U2 is the music. It’s always been about the music. And for that I thank The Edge. I’m convinced it’s all him. Adam Clayton is a great bass player, and he’s getting better with each record. Larry Mullen Jr., is capable enough. Not the best drummer in the world, but he gets it done. The Mullen/Clayton combo is impressive; always has been. Bono is “the voice”. If you’ve wondered what God given talent sounds like, look no further. He’s got it. But, The Edge, he’s something else. He plays guitar like no one else. He didn’t start imitating anyone. And now everyone tries to imitate his sound; his technique. The melodies. The solos. The layers. It’s a little of what heaven will be like.

If you listened to the album once, or even twice, and you though, “ho hum, moving on now”, stop. Give it another listen. It’s amazing.

iCloud Celeb Photo Leak: Absurd Narcissim

This is the world we live in. Ukraine, Syria, Ebola, ISIS, Terrorism, our President without a strategy, and what are we talking about?

Hackers who got into iCloud accounts storing naked pictures of celebrities; naked pictures the celebrities took OF THEMSELVES! 

Stupid. Vacant. Self-serving. Vanity.

When we should be focused on REAL ISSUES that will have a serious impact on our future, our security, and our children, we’re worried about how Jennifer Lawrence is “coping” with this. We’re worried about how Kate Upton will ever recover. 

There are women posting naked pictures of themselves on Twitter and other social media sites, tagging the photo with the hashtag #LeakforJlaw. You know, in support of Jennifer, WHO TOOK PHOTOS OF HERSELF NAKED!

The combined IQ of these people is negative 500. The muffin I ate for breakfast has more intelligence than anyone concerned with this idiotic story.

Shame on us.

That Homeless Guy Who Accepted Miley Cyrus' MTV Award? He's Wanted in Oregon


It was strange enough when Miley Cyrus sent 22-year-old homeless man Jesse Helt onstage at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards to accept her statue for Video of the Year and issue a PSA about the plight of runaway teens in America. Now, two days later, we’re learning that police have a warrant out for Helt in Oregon.

According to The Oregonian, Helt was arrested in 2010 for criminal mischief, criminal trespass and burglary after breaking into the home of a man who he believed sold him bad marijuana. He ended up pleading guilty and serving 30 days in jail for the misdemeanor charges plus a longer term of probation. After he violated that probation in November 2011, police issued a warrant for his arrest.

Helt, who had moved to Los Angeles and was living on the streets as he tried to find work as a model, is reportedly planning to return home to visit his mother yesterday using funds given to him by Cyrus. But when police showed up at his family’s home on Tuesday, they could not find him.

Back on the lamb. Thanks, Miley.

In case you missed the spectacle.
