i enjoyed every minute!
you will too if you love music.
it follows the edge, jimmy page and jack white
as they tell us how they came to be where they are today.
where U2 met and formed.
where larry posted a note
inviting students to come try out for his band.
was one that he and his brother made themselves -
they actually hand carved it!
and worked as an upholsterer
and how the guy he worked with introduced him
to punk and the blues.
then they formed a band
and called themselves
and he makes it look so easy.

i fell in love.
mostly i fell in love with how
it would blow the minds
of my nieces and nephews.
('cause you know i'm all about my nieces and nephews!)
i made it today for our sunday family dinner.
and it worked.
their minds were blown.
drop the next color in the center, right on top of the first. you can choose the order of the colors.(omnomicon did red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple...and then the opposite in the other pan. hers looked better than mine, so i'm doing mine her way next time!)
and finally, look at this cool view from the bottom!
