STIPEY SAYS HE’S LOOKING GOOD
On the REM website, Michael Stipe comments on U2s new album: i read edna gunderson’s interview with U2 on the plane and thought it was one of the most exciting and thoughtful and downright inspiring articles i’d read in a while, read it here. i heard their record a couple months ago in france and i was whooping and jumping, its really challenging, esp. for me since i’m still squeaking out lyrics for the final songs. anyway, it is a g- r- e- a- t- record, esp. for me ‘elevation’ and i love ‘beautiful day’ as a first single. guts and brains and brawn and smarts and super hooky. when bono plays you their songs he sings in your ear. the whole time. loud. he’s looking really good these days, by the way.
it was larry’s birthday today so me and mike called up and sang happy birthday, i did that harmony thing on the ‘birthday to you’ part that my dad taught me from years of singing in church.
