Bono of U2 puts liberal politics aside to support Steve Scalise, police and the GOP after Alexandria, Virginia baseball game shooting…

Well, it appears that Bono and the band U2 are on Team Scalise, absolutely! Bono is a very liberal guy, he really is but I know there are times when he has no choice to be real when he needs to be. I know liberals have a deep hatred for Republicans and Conservatives. I’m sure Bono does too but he’s smart enough to put politics aside and have some heart. Ya know, something called “compassion” is the correct word I’m looking for.

U2 has the balls to show respect and love for the victims and law enforcement after the Alexandria shooting. Take note from Bono, liberals!

Of course, most of the mainstream media ignores this. CNN doesn’t say anything about it and neither does NBC. Media hates when people do positive things for Republican people, it’s disgusting.

Look, you may disagree with GOP political views all you want to but when they’re suffering, you should put politics aside and have some heart but most liberals don’t. Ever since this shooting happened, I haven’t seen one liberal publicly condemn the shooting. They never put out their thoughts and prayers or none of that stuff. Shameful.

I don’t like Bono’s politics but I loved what he did here. Like I said, take note from Bono, liberals. It doesn’t hurt to be kind and give some love to conservatives even if you don’t agree with their views. Try it sometime!

Bono has a strategy to destroy ISIS… send over comedians… like seriously? This man is delusional, I’m done with him…

Yeah Bono, go ahead and send Amy Schumer, Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen over to ISIS. I triple dare ya, man. See if that works for ya. If they get beheaded or if they turn up missing, it’ll be Bono’s fault. Why don’t Bono himself go down to tell Isis some jokes? Is Bono a coward?

People who complain and whine about the U2 album…

Even if Apple just recently gave people the option to delete the new U2 album off of their Iphones, Ipads or Ipods or whatever… people are still complaining and bitching. After all this has been going on, I am starting to figure out why people are hating.

Here’s the deal…

People like free things. Don’t lie about it. Everybody loves free things. The reason everybody is hating on Apple and U2 is not because they gave out a free album. It’s not because of Apple or Itunes. People are only complaining and bitching because it all depends on the artist who is giving away the free album.

We all know that U2 has been one of the most hated bands for a long time now. In the past, U2 used to be one of the most respected bands in the world but after the album, “Achtung Baby”… that’s when U2 got a lot of hate when they decided to change their genre of music and go electronic for their albums, “Zooropa” and “POP”. Then Bono got himself into this Africa activism for starving children and all that stuff which is part of why they teamed up with Apple.

America loves free music but like I said it all depends on the artist who’s giving away free music on Itunes.

How much do you wanna bet that if artists like Taylor Swift, Adelle or John Mayer gave out a free album on Itunes… everybody wouldn’t mind it. People would have been all for it.

It’s all about the artist, not Apple.

How much do you wanna bet that those people who complained and whined about the new U2 album being forced on their gadgets didn’t even listen to the album? They just felt like hating. Haters are gonna hate.

Sharon Osbourne just recently called out Apple and U2 for this on twitter, she’s hating on them too. I personally think that the only reason Sharon is hating ’cause she’s mad that Apple didn’t ask Ozzy to be a part of it. If Apple asked Ozzy or Black Sabbath to give out a free album, I’m almost 100% positive Sharon WOULD be on board for it.

I’m pretty sure this won’t be the last time Apple is gonna do this. They’ll do this again with a different artist but who knows who???

The reason Apple did this ’cause Steve Jobs was good friends with Bono before he died and I’m sure this is what Steve would have wanted. I think they did it in Steve’s honor. I can see Apple giving away free albums by Bob Dylan next ’cause Steve was a huge fan of his.

Like I said above, everybody likes free music… don’t lie about it… some people just hated U2 being the first one to do it.

No matter what people think of this idea… I think it’s a good marketing strategy. It’s a good way to get artists out there. Apple will probably do this more. This will be an ongoing trend.

I mean, if people hate Apple so much then why did they get an Iphone or an Ipod??? There are other gadgets out there and other brands. That’s why people have agreed to use Androids and there are other Mp3 players too.

I used to hate Apple and at first, I never wanted anything to do with Apple products until now. Now I’m in love with Apple products and think there is nothing wrong with them.

There’s no reason for people to complain. They just complain ’cause that’s all they’re gonna do. Once again, haters are gonna hate. I think they’re just jealous that U2 got shoved in everyone’s faces like that.

Instead of complaining and whining… just listen to the album. I think it’s a great album and the boys are back musically!!! I’ve listened to it a couple of times already.

U2’s new album, “Songs of Innocence” is actually a pretty great album, surprisingly!!!

There’s a lot of U2 hate going on but I don’t understand it. I stopped liking the band for a long while myself but I don’t “hate” them. I still respect U2 for their legacy and I still love their earlier music. Honestly, I think I stopped liking U2 after their, “All That You Can’t Leave Behind” album which was their best new album in the 2000’s years, in my opinion.

I listened to their new album, “Songs of Innocence” they just released for Itunes for FREE two times already. I’m very impressed with the album. It seems they got their old school sound back a little bit. I can hear a lot of 70’s and 80’s style that U2 used to have back in the day. There’s a lot of Ramones and the Clash influences on the album which is what the album is about. It’s a homage to those two legendary bands, I believe.

This is Bono’s best singing and the Edge’s guitar playing, WOW!!!! The whole band is pretty tight all the way through. I think the songwriting is very impressive on this album.

My two favorite tracks on the album are “Sleep Like A Baby Tonight” and “Raised By Wolves”. “Cedarwood Road” is a very good song too. The song “Sleep Like A Baby Tonight” kind reminds me of their classic song, “Bullet the Blue Sky” a little bit.

I was pretty impressed with the new U2 album so I’ll probably keep it. Sometime I’ll have to figure out how to get the album on my Ipod Touch. I’m sure there’s a way, i’ll figure it out.

I know a lot of people are upset that they have to get forced to have the album on your Apple gadgets but give the album a chance. Give it a listen and you might actually enjoy it yourself. I know a lot of people are pissed at Bono at this idea but I think it’s pretty cool! It’s a good marketing idea for your band and creative! Because of this, I’m sure U2’s new album, “Songs of Innocence” will be a no. 1 album on the Billboard Charts.

If you have an Iphone or an Ipad or whatever, you should give the album a listen. I think U2 just won my respect back.

Report: Bono, “…this boy is not a billionaire, or going to be richer than any Beatle”…

Bono is quick to respond to today’s reports on him getting part of a share from Facebook’s IPO, filing. Reports went all over the news that Bono could be the richest rock star on the planet. The reason is, his company Elevation Partners, owns 2.3 % of Facebook, and the company gets part of the share of IPO. Today, it was discovered that Bono doesn’t really own, Elevation Partners, he is only part of the company. He claims he’ll be getting paid but not as much as people would like them to believe. Elevation Partners, is a company that helps invest in media, entertainment, and technology.

More on the story, here.

I think he’s full of it and lying. What do you think?

Cool Video: Bono makes surprise appearance at “The Living Room” in NYC to perform with Glen Hansard…

Bono, the lead singer of U2, makes a rare and surprise public appearance at “The Living Room” music venue in NYC to perform, a song with Irish singer/songwriter, Glen Hansard. I believe Glen and Bono are pretty close friends, as they are both from, Ireland. Glen was in NYC last night to play an intimate acoustic show, and Bono just happened to be in town, so Glen invited Bono to sing a song with him.

Pretty cool performance, and this proves that Bono can really sing too.

Thought: About “Spiderman” in Broadway, accidents and injuries controversy…

Yes, I’ve been following it. How the Spiderman shows in NYC are having too many accidents and injuries. The shows sets and stunts have gone wrong, that actors are getting injured. Want to know what my thoughts on this? I know y’all don’t wanna hear this, but it needs to be said. Here’s the deal…

When I heard that Julie Taymour is going to do a “Spiderman” Broadway show in NYC, I said to myself, “Is she kidding me? How the hell is she going to pull this off?” The thing is, bringing comic book super heroes to the theater stage would be very difficult to do. It’ll take a lot of professional stunts and crazy effects that would be impossible to bring to the live stage. If anything, I think the crew behind this broadway show hired the shittiest stunt men for the show.

Bringing Super hero movies to the big screen in the movies is appropriate because that’s much easier to do, but doing it for Broadway theatre would be very dangerous. If they were serious about this, “Spiderman” musical, they would take their time to rehearse their stunts, so it can be for their own safety. It seems to me that the actors doing their own stunts weren’t professionally trained.

They should just cancel the whole thing for good. They would never successfully have a good Spiderman show, ’cause they will keep getting more injuries if they keep at it.

Report: U2 to go back to techno for their next album…

U2’s last couple of albums, “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb” and “No Line On the Horizon” were albums concentrating on going back to their old school 80’s rock sound they used to have. Since those albums didn’t sell well in the Billboard, U2 has decided to experiment with techno again. They’ve experimented techno before with albums such as “Zooropa” and “POP”.

For their next record, they plan to make a dance record that you can dance to.

The Associated Press reports:

Hmmm, I wonder if this is a sign that Bono plans on bringing back his Mr. McPhisto character he used to do during the techno days.

I thought “Zooropa” was a good album, but “POP” wasn’t. Since Pop and electronica is very popular in the mainstream of music, it might be a good chance for U2 to sell millions of records again. Their last couple of albums were failures. Even “POP” was a failure.

If U2 wants to experiment with techno again, they better ask advice from Lady Gaga ’cause I think they just want to compete with her.

Report: Liam Neeson and Bono team for “The Virgin of Las Vegas” film…

Parallel Pictures is making a film titled, “The Virgin of Las Vegas”, which is about an aging rock band singer who is prone to drinking and living in Las Vegas. Liam Neeson is attached to star, Bono will produce. This film will mostly be about Irish bands that became popular in the U.S. who came from Ireland. Liam Neeson is from Ireland, just like Bono.

Variety Reports:

Liam singing his own vocals in a band in this movie? Interesting. Bono is probably coaching him onto singing.
