Bono: Me Soup


Fáilte! Slicing together video footage of the last 40 years of G8 Summits and MTV, looking for seeds of cross-pollination -- suddenly, simultaneously, on me two video monitors -- 1) the first President Bush throwing up soup in Japan and 2) a video by Maddness. I got some of me mates together and we came up with an idea, but some bloke already stole me idea! He even took Edge's idea for two ferrets singing about how much they like the moon! Damn brits. Seems like we have to go with Plan C -- doing a cover of "my future's so bright, I gotta wear shades", with the video of all the mates wearing my patented blue-blocker sunglasses. When life hands you a rabbit and some pig neck meat, you make irish rabbit stew, and make the best of it. Slán.

When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade. But lets go with the Irish Stew.

I was just watching the "me idea," link, realizing as an aging hippie, also a fellow musician, that any attention span is diminishing as computers get faster and faster. This song was no exception, as people carry out Shakespeare's "brevity is the soul of wit," to an extreme. Possibly Moore's law only means shorter and shorter time spans accomplishing more and more work.

I am seriously considering wearing a soup can on my head, or figuring out some promotional gimmick for other working musicians here in Hawaii. Thanks for your ideas,

Best Wishes!

P.S. Thanks for a super concert at Aloha Stadium!
