1. I believe the headline used sarcasm as a literary device.

2. The best part is how Tyler comes around to loving Bono. I can only think that Tim Cook and Paul McGuinness paid him a “visit” somewhere between 4:15 and 4:24 pm.

Thaaaat’s…kind of over the top. In almost every way (if an album just showing up in your iTunes is “creepy,” let me tell you a story about a thing called “Facebook”).
.
Maybe the journalism is a commentary, a metaphor if you will, for what you believe U2 used to be: brash, overstated and a bit pompous?

The etymology seems to be:

1. Felice Varini gets idea from (somewhere).
2. 1stAveMachine gets idea from Varini.
3. OK Go get pitch/production from 1stAveMachine.
4. Apple gets idea from OK Go.

No one in that entire chain should be claiming originality, and especially not either of the last two.

OK Go say “any press is good press!”

…Hey, I think that might make a great t-shirt.

I think it’s been established that there’s no re-gifting of iTunes tunes.

You *could* download the songs by clicking the cloudy arrows, then right-click the songs and choose “Create MP3 version” and send those to your Dad, but that would be Stealing Music and I for one cannot condone it.

Also, we NOW know why the album was mysteriously delayed.

So far it’s kind of “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb Lite,” which on one hand speaks of its tunefulness, but on the other speaks for a kind of running-in-place feel.

I saw “Hear Fall Out Boy” and stopped reading.

I had to stop watching when DailyEffingMotion interrupted Weird Al to play another ad.

God, I hate DailyMotion.

She follows in the hard-rockin’ footsteps of Jethro Tull.

Or, does it mean that he doesn’t understand, that his mind isn’t working properly and is deserving of our sympathy and help, not our hatred and scorn?

My primary internal issue with the whole suicide debate is that it implies that the same sympathy, understanding and love is due to anyone who kills *others* due to the forces in their minds being “different” than ours. I do think that our desire to see “evil” in murderers prevents us from understanding the mental-health problems involved in most killings, and a healthier, more supportive environment would prevent a lot of murder.

And you could extrapolate that to any number of crimes and behaviors – the human brain is a fragile thing.

Suicide is a complex, non-cookie-cutter concept that seems to be oversimplified right now out of emotion. I expect my statement will also be oversimplified and downvoted, but so be it.
