“Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people's ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.”
I've wondered what the visual to this looked like since 1993 and randomly found it today.

" Achtung Baby embodies a multitude of ideas and styles which are represented through the album cover artwork mosaic. The squared collage of photos symbolise the spirit of the album, the 90s and the changes in Europe after the fall of the Berlin wall. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary, U2’s team, including designer Shaughn McGrath and original photographer, Anton Corbijn, are inviting artists to submit their photograph or artwork (can be an illustration, graphic design or painting) which reflects today's global environment. The photographs and artwork should emulate the same meaning that is conveyed on the original album cover. If Achtung Baby was released today, what photographs and/or artwork would be part of the collage? "

Some songs featured in the movie were substitutes for songs which the makers wanted but were denied the rights to. The dance performance was performed to "West End Girls" by the Pet Shop Boys, and Duran Duran's "Notorious" was re-dubbed in post-production. U2's "MLK" in the final scene is substituted with Gary Jules' cover of the Tears for Fears song "Mad World" instead.
A belated Birthday wish to my dearest Mademoiselle F.

+ U2 vs Lady GaGa: "I Will Be With Your Poker Face"
For my friend who spends more time getting over a girl than falling in love with her. Who didn't learn to appreciate the graceful way in which a woman breaks a heart in half until a girl shattered it. My friend with an expiration date on his heart. He's a hopeless case....
