omg u2 played ottawa and i saw them

U2-10/03/05-Boston-Vertigo by mdu2boy (cc)with a bunch of friends at the corel centre omg it was phatter than phat. you can’t even imagine, omg you can’t even understand the mind-blowingness of it all. phil and amelia and vafa and sahba and aram and natalia and i all hooked up and kicked it in the big red van all the way down to the concert and omg we got blown away like some soda cracker that got sandblasted, omg it was so cool i died!!!!!! and the music was, well, the music was u2 so there’s not much else to be said. but omg the lights were phat and the music was phat and the edge was phat and bono didn’t wear his hat but if he had then his hat would be phat!!!

seriously? the u2 concert was a great experience. watch for photos on vafa.tk soon [they’re up now – dan]. Just a quick comment; although I generally eschew politics and nurture a healthy skepticism about everything political, I was somewhat refreshed by the calls to end poverty, human rights abuses, and religious and sectarian hatred given during the concert. I found it refreshing because they’re serious. Bono goes all over the world putting his money where his mouth is, and I can respect that. Baha’u’llah says: “Let deeds, not words, be your adorning.” for the same reason, it was inspiring. I felt inspired to actually take a look at what I’m doing to help contribute to the betterment of the world – like, for instance, teaching children virtues and spiritual qualities. Not all of us can be international superstars, but each one of us can make a difference, and do it to the best of our ability.
