  1. I had the absolute pleasure of seeing this masterpiece in IMAX today. I was only 6 when it came out, so huge thanks to A24 for bringing it back! I hadn’t watched it in a long time, so that was nice. Run to it! At my local megaplex, it’s sharing the IMAX auditorium with Barbie this weekend and The Creator is coming on Friday the 29th in IMAX, so it looks like a 1 week IMAX engagement around where I am. However, it is getting a wider release on the 29th on regular screens, as I’m sure you’ve read. Nice to check something off the bucket list…
  2. I just read that they did perform I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For in between takes of the new song. I guess that music video was filmed on the same exact street: Fremont. Looks different, but I guess that’s what 36 years does to a place like Vegas… I also found out that those were paid extras to be in the crowd. Not sure if they were told to take out their smart phones to make it look authentic.
  3. Yeah, very interesting. The song is in the same wheelhouse as The Miracle Of Joey Ramone, but I like this tune a bit better. Looking forward to hearing the single without all of the audience noise.
  4. As I was about to reply to you, I was perusing FB and saw a YouTube video of U2 (with Larry!!) performing a new song, Atomic City, on Fremont St in Vegas last night. Looks like it was a music video shoot. Wow! This is getting odd. Larry is there for the music video shoot. Hmm. One of the dirty rumors from this past year was that Larry had already left the band, but the fans didn’t realize it yet. This must be mostly PR to keep things looking like everything is ok for a potential 2024 tour that would feature Larry. https://youtu.be/yG6nhiBs6Lk?si=sJIsFAwrycUiMFun

  6. Well, I’ll bring some good news…a rumor recently surfaced about a new U2 single that is set to drop on September 29th (the opening day of their Las Vegas residency at The Sphere). I’ve read that the band (minus Larry Mullen, Jr.) arrived in Vegas the day after Labor Day to begin rehearsals and are traveling to Los Angeles after rehearsals to finish up mixing this single. Good news: Larry recorded drum beats to use for future recordings, before he had his surgery, so he should be on this. The (sorta) Bad News: U2’s Instagram story a few weeks ago had music that sou
  7. I found out 2 nights ago through the YouTube comments of the Space Invader video that Laugh Track (their next record) was due out sometime this month. Maybe even as soon as next week. Could it be true?…I saw that they were road testing a bunch of new songs this past summer. And I had read that they recorded enough tunes for another record. As I was checking Google for tonight’s setlist, it looks like they announced the new record at tonight’s gig. And it’s coming digitally late Sunday night/early Monday morning. Awesome! Really nice looking setlist you got! All of High Viole
  8. It’s entirely possible, but I think it’s more of a case of Susie asking Jeff what the name of the song was and him saying something like “I haven’t decided on Child Soldier or Soldier Child yet.” The lyrics go “I fought like a child Soldier fights to forget What it’s like to be home.” , according to WilcoWorld. I can see from the lyrics how it could have gone either way, but I also haven’t listened to the two Tweedy Show versions in a bit either. Possible he flipped “child” and “soldier” in the lyrics.
  9. Very nice catch! You know I had a hazy memory that he did do Soldier Child twice, but on Monty’s list it’s only listed once as Soldier Child for episode 217. The funny thing is it’s on his list as Child Soldier for episode 175 (like you noticed) which is how it is in my notes, but I haven’t searched for it like that because I totally forgot about that. I’m guessing Jeff called it Child Soldier the first time that he played it and/or was also considering calling it Soldier Child. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Feels like that first time he did it was 5+ years ago and not 2. I’m considering doing a deep dive i
  10. Grazie! How is that group? Have there been concert reports/photos from the first couple of European shows on there?
  11. Excellent breakdown! This helps a lot! But I want to mention that he did do Pittsburgh (episode 183) and Soldier Child (episode 217) on The Tweedy Show. Thank you for the kind words!
  12. The full Uncut review of Cousin has been posted over in the FB group via Fiona Ev (not sure if she’s in here) in the UK. It’s an extended review of the one that Blackberry Rust posted a couple of days ago. It gets tough to read near the crease. Tom Waits is on the cover. I think this issue hits the States next month. I haven’t been to a Barnes & Noble recently, so I’m not sure which issue they have out right now. If it helps, this issue is dated as October. edited: You might as well skip down to Vince’s reply with the much better & smoother pic and avoid the neck

  14. Damn! What good is having an iCalendar on my iPhone without these important dates included?! Do better, Tim Apple! Anyways, I regret to inform you that we all missed National Bowls Day on June 3rd. Pretty sure that was just a Canadian holiday, but I would have celebrated if I had known… edited for justice purposes: what about National Butterscotch Pudding Day?
