Peace on Earth

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

U2 are the biggest band in the world and I have personally met Bono and I love him to death. This doesn't mean that I am going to stand around and tell the world (and him) that I love everything that he and the rest of U2 are doing. And I think that the Bono I have met would respect that. At least I hope he would. If he doesn't, then I feel sorry for him. I remember Bono saying in an interview once that he fears being in a room filled with nothing but people on his payroll because he knows that he may not be getting their honest opinion on things. I respect him too much to not give him an honest opinion.

I am a writer so I understand the artistic process. What we create are our children and I am sure that it is the same for U2. I would rather my editor or my publisher tell me the truth and hurt my feelings than let me produce crap. I'm not saying that anything U2 does is crap, however, if all that is allowed to be said is positive, than U2 are not getting honest feedback.

I take the time to read the forums here and on other sites and what I wrote was a direct response to much of what I was reading. If my blog is not relevant to our readers, then it is just useless fluff.

As for my opinion on the An Sun Sukyi mask--this mask is not going to produce the result needed, which is getting her released from imprisonment. I am all for showing support for this cause, but I am in more support of seeing her released. I would rather take the time to electronically sign a petition or donate a dollar, than spend wasteful energy printing out a mask to be worn for no one to see except other U2 fans.

For the second time in my life I have had to deal with cancer--this means surgery, radiation, tons of vomit and a whole host of other nasty things. I am not saying this to get pity from our readers. I am saying this so that everyone understands that I do not have time for BS or ass kissing.

Brenda,

Thank you for the welcome!

Bono as well as The Edge, Larry and Adam all have very unique personalities and they haven't been afraid to laugh at themselves in the past. Who in their right mind can take the Discotheque video seriously? Or the episode of The Simpsons? Bono is even in Bruno, taking a piss at his own charity work.

Life is too short to be so serious, as I'm sure you are all to well aware of in your dealings with cancer. Laughter and music heal.

I look forward to reading more of your coming entries.

-Chelsea
