U-2 um enorme bombardeiro de sons


Hoje tem 27 anos, conheci-o era um rapaz (Boy) simples, aliás ele foi sempre um rapaz simples, ainda hoje a sua simplicidade de processos impressiona.
Foi no Mês de Outubro (October), estávamos na Irlanda, um Pais sempre em ebulição, onde homens como Michel Collins, lutaram até a exaustão, com honra, por um pais livre e sem o jugo, sem o domínio, dos Ingleses.
Ali naqueles vales verdejantes, ouve guerra (WAR), grandes guerras, grandes lutas, Onde o exército de libertação da Irlanda explorou até à muito pouco tempo as fragilidades de um regime. As lutas em Belfalt foram feitas som um céu de sangue vermelho (Under a blood red sky), eram lutas por uma causa, como naquele domingo sangrento.
Foi um fogo inesquecível (The unforgettable fire), era um rapaz discreto, que queria viver e sonhar, as suas direcções eram diversas, um dia acordou na América (Wide awake in América), foi um dia inexplicavelmente fantastico, ver todos aqueles antigos companheiros, homens de lutas antigas, que foram a procura de uma família e de um sonho. Foi morar para um bairro lindo, onde comia todos os dias à beira da árvore de Joshua (The Joshua tree) aquela sombra fazia-o lembrar aqueles domingos na sua terra depois da missa, que tanto gostava. Eram dias magníficos, para trás ficava aquele som, aquele zumbido da matraca (Rattle and hum) fugia, deixava por completo os seus sonhos. Agora era preciso ter atenção ao bebé (Achtung baby), ainda estava nos domínios daquele programa de televisão (Zooropa) mas ele nunca iria autorizar que o pequeno fosse a vedeta principal, era apenas um menino que dançava ao som de música (Pop). Um dia havia de voltar á sua terra onde iria arranjar um milhão de dólares para comprar aquele hotel. (the million dollar hotel).
Aquele rapaz, conhecia o mundo tinha percorrido ao longo deste 27 anos, todas as paragens possíveis e imaginárias, até aprendeu a desarmar uma bomba atómica. (How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb).

Seja de que modo for, continuam a agitar o barco da consciência humana, que continua também a navegar em águas turbulentas.

Já não são apenas "três acordes e uma verdade", mas a mensagem continua - felizmente - a ser passada às diversas gerações.

Oxalá continue assim!

juan das berças disse...

Lindo; e enciclopédico; no bom sentido. U2 rules.

Binoc disse...

Oiço... mas não me toca no íntimo. Ou seja, nunca consegui ser maluco por eles. Talvez por terem um grande pendor melódico e menos rítmico. Talvez por isso. Um abraço.

Só não dei cabeçadas na parede por não ter ido ao concerto porque é coisa que dói e acho que vão haver mais oportunidades. Mas dizem que este último álbum consegue ser melhor que o anterior e que os U2 estiveram fantásticos!
Confesso que quando era mais nova não gostava da banda, mas assim que aprendi a ouvi-los nunca mais os "larguei".
É mesmo a melhor banda do mundo.

Energy & Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY)
Current Price $0.15
================================

Recognize this undiscovered gem which is poised to jump!!

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities
Watch this One to Trade!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not
remain on the ground floor for long.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.
