It’s World Water Day, and a handful of U2 fans have put together the the Little Red Book of Poe-ee-tree. It’s fillled with short stories and poetry and all the royalties go to the African Well Fund.
The fans, from the US, Canada, the UK, France and Australia all used to post their poems in a poetry forum, The Heart, which was part of U2’s official fansite back in 2001-2003.
Today is the book’s launch day, so check out
the book’s MySpace and buy it at Lulu.com.
All donations to the African Well Fund go directly to Africare (one of the leading private, non-profit, charitable organisations assisting Africa) to fund water projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Willie Williams has put some ‘surveillance’ videos online, which he shot during the Vertigo Tour using remotely controlled infra-red cameras. Says he: “The performers were unaware that they were being filmed.”
Check them out on YouTube. Hamish, eat your heart out. Seriously.
