That's the sort of thing which has always got right up my nose-it's just namedropping and trying to bask in a bit of reflected glory to mask your own deficiencies. Bono's been pulling that one for over 20 years, but don't even get me started on him!<!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><div class='postcolor'><!--QuoteEEnd-->
I heard (on radio) that Bono pays no taxes because in Ireland, if you're a national icon, you're exempt from taxation. So when Bono complains again about the U.S. not forking out more money (which gives twice the amount of the whole of Europe is what I heard), well Bono, dig a little deeper in your pocket. Alright, a little mean and unnecessary.

Not mean and unneccessary at all; keep putting that boot in! I did warn you not to get me started on Bono... Mark Steel once said that if Bono is so concerned about solving the African debt problem he could do it himself with the loose change down the back of his sofa. There's probably millions there-and a couple of pairs of old wraparound sunglasses!

Seriously, in Ireland we have a thing called Artists Tax Exemption (or something similar) where musicians, writers etc don't pay any tax on their artistic endeavours (Hmm, I think I'll pass on making judgement on the artistic value of U2 for now-but I will get back to it. Oh jesus, will I!) Anyway, the point of it was to encourage young, struggling artists not to throw in the towel and get a job in a sweet factory. Unfortunately (here it comes) there is no cut-off point beyond which you start paying tax-so Bono is in the same bracket as a guy who might get 50 quid for an acoustic set down the local pub (maybe he should start busking down the back of Bono's sofa <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo--> )

And this is why you should have no qualms about having a pop at the man who would be John Lennon (if only he could); U2 are not so much a band as a multinational company with amplifiers, and they pay less tax than me (sort of).

Bet you're sorry you ever mentioned it now! <!--emo&:rolleyes:-->Image<!--endemo-->

*considers moving to Ireland*

It's a nice idea really, but obviously it seems as though there are flaws inherent in the scheme.

Only if you're a pampered, egotistical, millionaire rock star. And I'm sure they care! But for a genuine penniless artist it would seem to be okay <!--emo&:B-->Image<!--endemo-->

Halloo!

Yes Audioscrobbler seems to go sometimes for days without updating even once - or is this not the problem you are having?

No updates since Moz' birthday back in May, but I uploaded the newest version, and in doing so I had to close the older version, now I've lost my music note icon. Re-booted as it's a start-up item, but no go. I'm sure it's some silly little thing I'm missing. I've been too lazy to investigate. I have at least 300 songs that are backlogged!

You hate most people? Utterly acceptable and understandable behaviour. You should join the support group TallulahTaurus and myself are starting; we hate everyone. Practically.

hey hey back to you, Sweet'n'Tender!
you should visit the place more often, we've missed you!
I hate where I live too - Sofia is an ugly, dusty, noisy town with no athmosphere whatsoever. i miss my hometown.
And, hmm, most people deserve nothing but to be hated - they provoke your hatred all the time! <!--emo&:ph34r:-->Image<!--endemo--> i can understand you very well.
So there you have Domestique's offer <!--emo&;)-->Image<!--endemo-->
