Went to see the U2360 show in Brussels with my 2 kids last wednesday. Because my kids were coming along, I didn't have GA tickets but seats instead.
So no real close-ups this time, but all the more pictures of the Claw in its full glory. See the results on my
U2 page and then click on the U2360 logo that says "2010 My U2 pictures Helsinki & Brussels".

Came back from a 4-day crash-visit to Helsinki, and boy did I have a fabulous time! I went there with 4 friends, fellow U2-fans to be more
precise, to visit two U2 shows. They were two brilliant concerts, and my photo's turned out equally brilliant.
See for yourself by going to my U2 page and then click on the U2360 logo that says "2010 My U2 pictures Helsinki & Brussels".

Finland. I was there with Emma the first two weeks of August.

Woohoo! Woohoo! Just saw U2 live in the Amsterdam Arena! Not only once but twice this week! First show was a bit of a bummer,
didn't like it too much. But the second show rocked. Also, I had a perfect spot during the second show; bang in the middle of
the railing at the catwalk. You can see the result here (click on the U2360 logo).

So, 9 days before it's official release here in Holland, U2's new album "No Line On The Horizon" leaked on the internet. On an
Australian website connected to Universal. Needless to say I was thrilled to be able to download it today, and since I also managed
to get hold of the lyrics, I thought I'd put the lyrics up a.s.a.p. You can find them here.
January 25th, 2009
Uploaded 2 new mp3's. The first is Elbow's version of U2's "Running To Stand Still". And the second is a mix I did on U2's new

Photo Albums. Check it out! Also added a new Mix: The Verve vs Norah Jones.

And finally; the launch of my new website. I used to occupy the www.trojanbeer.com address, until the bloody idiots of
Planet Internet decided to kick me off their space. Because of their fault (which they acknowledged) something went wrong and I
was disconnected from the internet altogether. I spent several months trying to get to talk to someone at their helpdesk with an
IQ over 20, but never managed to find anyone fitting that description.
Then they started sending me stupid letters.
Anyway, that's when I decided to go for a new domainname; www.trojanbeer.nl
This gave me a new boost of creativity, so I got rid of a few parts of my old website, and added the new parts of
Video Album and Mixes. Enjoy!
I try to frequently update this site, so please: keep coming back to
