Okay....so I'm watching this award thing (http://www.constitutioncenter.org/libertymedal/splash.html) for Bono/DATA and....am confused. It's like a middle school assembly or something right now...? Uh. Excited Philadelphians reciting from plays.

Edit: This author's manner of speech is hilarious. Rabbi-like, but hilarious accent.

Edit: finally, someone who makes sense! Also, she's got a great head-wrap. And says "Bono" hilariously. (ah, she's receiving the award as well, AND is a doctor, hence the "making sense." She's Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. Yes, I had to look that up. Wouldn't you?)


Oh wow, Bono makes a good speech when he writes one (vs. ad-libbing). That was *great*. *in awe* Of course he was dorky too (rather adorably, haha..."hometown hero Will Smith"? l-o-l), but yeah, really knows his way around making powerful phrases.

Other notes--EWWW to interviewing Rick Santorum in the re:DATA piece!!!! Guess they felt they had to counter Nancy Pelosi's presence. :/ Are there any GOOD Ricks in the world? Oh, and George Bush Sr. has a toothless smile.


OH, and most importantly(heh!)? U2's in the studio ahora. Though it's supposed to be a year before a new album... How many places are they going to record in the interim, jeez? ;) Eze (France) & London (those yielded The Saints are Coming and Window in the Skies), Fez (Morocco, in May or June?), Dublin (nowadays)... B could've just been saying that, of course ("I hope the band doesn't fire me for flying to Philadelphia today when they're waiting in the studio/expecting me..."). S'pose it would be easy enough to find out--keep an eye out for pics of them in Dublin. If they show up, they're probably working.



Edit, yet again: Video! Unfortunately smaller screen than the webcast, boo. Click on the Web Extra one. Article, if the vid doesn't work...(click on "visit our 'video on demand' center" to the right to get to the video page).
