October...
ttocsland
always a time of wonder for me... and as U2's 'October' is played on the radio, a bit haunting the chord progressions on the piano ... I fall into a memory sink hole...

I was actually just looking up my hit and miss love of U2 (thanks MickeyMatt, btw...) - in the fall of 1984 I visited Sarasota with Bill, and he got me tickets for a U2 show in Tampa for May 85; I ended up home for the holidays and never made it back to New College to chill with Bill.

There was the 1986-87 world wide missing U2 tour - June at the Cow Palace, San Fran - I don't get to Monterey until September 86.

We are both in Texas in April of 87, maybe, but I go to Upstate, they go to Germany; I go to Germany, they go to Syracuse ... ah, the sweet sweet expectation.

Guess I did see them play at the Kodak in 03, so I should stop my bitching ... oh - wait - after pissing and moaning and watching too much TV on a Saturday evening (wow - shocking activity and something new for scott) I got off my ass and took a leap ... to see if the truth was there ... oh so close, just in Raleigh...

Moment of Surrender .... hmmm...

as told by the rock DJ ... the title of the song that closed the show...
and then they play Dire Straits 'Romeo and Juliet' ... ah - the 1980's - somewhat amazing, wouldn't you agree, if you recall?

Hahn airbase, young and clueless, excitement at every turn ... how jaded we become after 20 years!

so, perhaps some realizations? Grab the energy of the day - whatever the day. I fell in love with music of groups who weren't touring anymore - one after another - Kansas, Eagles, Styx, Boston - not really a good excuse, but ... as I listen to the 'hangover cafe' here on our rock station, and they find live versions of the Foo Fighters 'Times Like These' - yeah, I'm now sure that live show would have been awesome...

but you know what, if you go to amazon, and type in say Neil Young Live DVD, you just might find an interesting show or three...
so that's my plan - catch the shows I can, pick up the ones I haven't ... hmmm... Collin Hay tonight? why the fuck not!

pardon the rambling, you must forgive my newfound lust for life - I blame the full moon.

oh - hey - also, remember this - if you cammy takes 'email' quality video, DO NOT USE THAT SETTING!!!!!!!!!!

carry on...
