she liked Imaginary Men best of all

King Crush and Crown Prince vying for attention


So the day started out pretty nifty – not one but two tweets from The Killers. The first one a thanks for the tour and all the love and support from the fans. Then another promising news and “sights and sounds both new & old.”

THEN they updated their site today to have countdown clock with some seriously beautiful music.

Now I personally find it hella amusing that the countdown seems to be corresponding to my arrival on their home turf of Vegas on Thursday! More like their Countdown to Getting the Fuck out of Here Before the Crazy East Coast Girls with the Feathered Brownies and GingerRonnies Show Up!!

So as if all that news weren’t exciting enough, the Twitter feed for atU2 had a series of posts about Larry Mullen Jr. making his acting debut IN A MOVIE!!!!

I think it goes without saying that I need to see this movie about a million times. Even though apparently my King Crush gets shot – which will make me bawl, but will probably make Bono giggle just a little.

What an incredibly awesome day to be obsessed with The Killers and LMJ!

  1. Isn’t everyday an awesome day to be obsessed with The Killers and Larry?

    And how HILARIOUS would it be if Ronnie met us at the airport with his limo service, holding up a sign saying “CRAZY EAST COAST GIRLS”!

  2. Also! I don’t know if you’ve seen this video:

    but it’s you’re two favorite boys TOGETHER!
    I love that after the song, the first thing Brandon does is run BEHIND LARRY’S DRUMKIT (OMG!) and gives him a huge hug!

    • Dani – the discovery of this video last fall pretty much MADE MY LIFE!!

      In fact, the hug that Brandon is summoned for by Larry – is the entire basis for my girl Jill and I to imagine they are BFF’s! We’ve even invented a reality show for them called “Big General/Little General” where they boss people around and look pretty. And argue whose the “Big” and whose the “Little”!

      As soon as it gets an airdate I’ll let you know ;-p

    • LMAO!
      Brandon and Larry are soooo BFF’s. I bet you every Friday and Monday they get together, crack open a Ben and Jerry’s, lay on Larry’s bed on their stomachs with their feet in the air, and read your blog. Then afterwards they give each other pedicures.

      Big General/ Little General- Hilarious!

      • In my fantasy world where these guys give a damn about my existence – I like to think of Larry saying Ok – ENOUGH with this BOY and Brandon smirking going whatcha gonna do about it old man? ;-ppp

        My uber crushes on them also make me question why I’m so attracted to two men who seem to be bossy, opinionated, meticulous, control freaks. Good thing they’re both so fucking hot. ;->

  3. The Countdown Clock makes me very nervous.

    Also, my Dad LOOOVES U2, so I’ve been exposed to it my entire life. I’ve seen Rattle and Hum more times than I can count and my first favorite song was Mysterious Ways. Anyway; for some reason we have this long running joke about Larry Mullen Jr… we pretend that he gets pushed around a lot by Bono and it endears him to me. I call him “Larry” with a heavy Irish accent and I try to stick up for him. Yeah. No idea why, my Dad is almost as weird as I am. ๐Ÿ˜‰
