impatient, obnoxious, petty, argumentative, and obsessed over meaningless details


I came across an unflattering photo of Bono last week. He is straightening his bits on the beach and I thought he looked a lot like Robin Williams:

I found out there are thousands of others who also think the same on

I cannot decide who I hate more between those two. It is probably Bono because I hear his shit on the radio and it is a bit more difficult to innocently stumble across Mrs Doubtfire or Good Morning Vietnam or Good Will Hunting in the car on the way to work.

I have still not recovered from hearing U2’s Christmas song in December (or for that matter that other song ‘you’ve got to get yourself together’ in 2000). Anyway I heard ‘Vertigo’ a few days ago and I remembered seeing an advertising hoarding for the album ‘How to dismantle an atomic bomb’ in 2004. I was shocked at how completely shit an idea it seemed. It is also a complete lie because it does not contain any instructions for disarming an atomic bomb anywhere in the sleeve. Similarly the lyrics are a disappointment for would be bomb defusers but you will find such gems as:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

To compound it all I saw this today:

The details made me vomit violently in disgust. Luckily I found a Louis Vuitton bag close by to contain the waste.

they are wearing Hewson’s own organic and ethical label Edun, which she created in 2005 and aims to encourage trade in Africa.

Each bag boasts a hand crafted charm created in Kenya for fairtrade jewellery label MADE, as well as a plaque with the inscription ‘Every journey began in Africa.’

They could have saved the cost of the trip by just going to Connemara as it looks the same. They could have donated the money to charity but who really thinks they care about that.

    Did I ever tell you I “met” Bono once?
    He was eating in a posh sea food restaurant on the sea front in Dun Laoghaire years ago, it must be over 20 years as I was only a kid. Some one spotted him eating in the restaurant and about 10 or 12 of us were outside waiting to get autographs as he was so “famous”.

    He came out and started to sign autographs. There were one or two left without an autograph when his car pulled up and he got in it and drove off. To this day I still think he was a cunt. Would it have killed him to spend and extra 30 secs to sign the last couple.

      Is that why you are so cynical now ?

      I saw him twice, once he was pushing a pram up a hill in Dalkey, he did not look fit. The other time he was in the Odessa club as it was his assistants 30th birthday. The diminutive shit was coming down the stairs with his wife and he was telling her “no they loved you”. His mates were there including ‘artist’ Guggi who the bar staff did not recognise as he stood in the service area looking for special treatment. My friend was going to go over to Guggi and say “your paintings are shit” but sadly he didn’t. I think guggi already knows.
