Bryan is on holiday. Permanently.

Well there’s a nice welcome back.

Not a single, “Did you have a nice time?” or “Missed you”.

Just a lot of, “I read your blog while you were away – Bryan’s really funny” and “Can he do it every week?”

I wouldn’t mind if people were saying it to wind me up, but there’s a horrid ring of sincerity in their voices (you can tell when someone’s being sincere here because everybody turns around and stares).

Yes Bryan was very entertaining. FOR A WEEK. Anyone can blog for a week. He’s a flash in the pan, don’t you see? Like Right Said Fred. Or Stiltskin (remember them?)

Me, I’m U2. Consistently producing the goods. Churning it out. Admittedly the routine has got a bit tired lately – basically the same idea re-hashed over and over. But you're compelled to keep coming back for more because you remember it was good once.

Maybe it'll get good again. Maybe it won't. The point is, Bryan’s gone now and there’s nothing you can do about it.


  1. Oh dear!

    It sounds as if Wales has worked it's timeless magic on yet another holidaymaker...

  2. I SO remember Stiltskin! They were ace.

    It's nice to have you back though. Did you have a good time?

    (Maybe Stiltskin could open for U2 from time to time?)

  3. actually U2 are shite.

  4. Bring back Grunders !

  5. Grunders! Grunders! Grunders!

  6. U2? Not the best analogy, (I agree with with 8:12). Depeche Mode maybe. Then we'd all be coming back for more.
