Seriously do fuck Bono. In the nose.
It's really interesting to me, though, the disparity in overall opinion of U2 between people who became culturally aware in the late 1980s and people who became culturally aware in the early/mid 1990s. Nobody is going to argue that they aren't terrible, because they are terrible. Also insufferable. But U2 in the 1980s was a completely different thing -- just utterly completely fucking different. They had artistic integrity shooting out of their asses. And their material from the 80s was outstanding -- if you can manage to separate it from what they are now, which is damn near impossible anymore. Even for me, let alone for people who didn't experience the wave of culture that was The Joshua Tree.
I get and understand and absolutely agree with the generally accepted opinion of U2 as an institution -- just it's interesting to me that the fact that they were essentially Radiohead is fading from the collective consciousness.

Yeah, we had a busier weekend than anticipated and we still ended up finishing season two of Orange is the New Black by Monday night. I loved it so much, it was fucking fantastic, and that is taking into account that basically everything on television looks like a turd next to Fargo.
