I never thought I’d find myself saying this, but the new U2 album is actually not bad. Danger Mouse’s production suits them pretty well, and several of the songs sound like War which is the only U2 album I kind of like. It’s not gonna be one of my favorites of the year or anything, but I don’t hate it.

Though I do have to agree with Eric and Scott Aukerman that the opening to “California” is unbelievably cheesy and awful even by U2 standards.

I learned about the existence of the BMW Isetta today. I can’t tell if this car is really dumb or really cool.

The CTA is almost always bad at night, but oddly enough the late night drivers on the Irving Park buses are all super nice chill people. Two separate dudes have let me ride for free when I accidentally got on with negative money on my Ventra card. They weren’t even annoyed about it or anything, they were real friendly and didn’t give a shit.

One time I had a lady bus driver who was extremely outgoing and pleasant and I ended up having like a 10 minute conversation with her. We weren’t even talking about anything interesting, but she was so engaging and personable, I honestly couldn’t believe she was a bus driver and not a TV personality or a motivational speaker or something.
