I don’t like posting rumors… unless it has to do with titles or casting, just because it’s so fun to imagine and speculate and argue.

Remember when we were told that the new Star Wars film was going to be called THE CREEPING FEAR?! Man, that was one of the happiest days of my life. I still have a wild, passionate, deep-down hope that this will indeed be the title of the film rather than something as boring as Birth of the Empire.

Anyway… to the point… now U2 fan sites are reporting that another title is “in the running” and another domain name has been secured for the upcoming album.

“How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb”

If I get a vote, I vote for the previous possibility: “Vertigo”  It’s got more punch, it’s more suggestive, and the other idea is just too long, cumbersome, weighty, and, as a friend of mine pointed out, too much like the subtitle to Dr. Strangelove.


Now, news that material from U2’s upcoming album has been stolen from a band photo shoot. Expect to hear about illegal Internet postings any moment now…
