Oh dear god - I can't view this at work but can imagine what it's going to be. I'll have a stiff drink, summon up some courage and watch tonight.
I think I hate being indecisive.

i thought it would be bono, elbows on knees, leaning into the camera, and speaking in that oh so sincere way he has, turning to the side and looking down every so often to convey the emotion of the piece.  but it's off the radio, and someone's added music and archive sound to it.  so, still silly as hell, but not as horrific as expected.
cry HAVOC!! and let slip the pigs of war!!!

A highly skilled poet, just like Russell Crowe :?
