black eyed peas opens for u2

As most of you know, Minhee and I had the joy and gift of soaking in the U2 concert this past week.

After hearing all the hype and elevation of U2 and blah blah blah, I became a believer this past week. I’ve always enjoyed their music but I became a fan this week – even despite Bono blowing kisses at my wife. Jerk.

Anyways, the venue wasn’t as packed when the Black Eyed Peas opened for U2. It’s not fair to compare these two but the BEP just seemed off or that I’m not familiar with their music. In fact, I’ve only heard one of their songs prior to the show.  But then again, maybe it’s because they weren’t playing “their” show to their primary audience. What was fascinating was to be so close to stage and to able to see the precision of everything they were doing – or at least attempting to do.

Any Black Eyed Peas fans amongst my readers?

Here’s one of the videos I captured:

And while I was at it, I took what I think is a pretty kick arse photo of Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas. If she donates her one day’s wages, I’m willing to let her use it for her next album. Click on the image to see the high resolution picture.

And in case you missed it the first time, here’s the best photo I took from the U2 show: Edge in action. Click on the image to see the high res:

    Been a U2 fan for years myself. You got some crazy good seats.

    I would have taken a nap or read a book during the BEP songs.

    Hey Eugene – U2 was great, of course, but I was surprised by the Peas. My own thoughts are here if you’re interested.

    Nice! Just got tickets for June 18 here in the Bay. Great shot of my Guitar Hero, the Edge. I wanna see how big of a lens I can bring into the stadium.

My Padawan. My son. My youngest. Encouraging him to not just hit the hoop courts but also the books. Minhee and I met these college boys when we first arrived in Seattle in 1997. They were part of our bible study that we led in our apartment for college students. They were also among the group of 7 people that helped start @seattlequest.

Much has changed in the world...but not their friendship and love. Thank you Jin and George. We love and honor you. These are crazy times in our country and larger world but nevertheless, we're going to keep pursuing the things that God has placed upon our hearts. We're pressing forward...doing our part to reflect mercy, compassion, and justice - locally and globally.

Wednesdays are my @onedayswages office day and I especially love the culmination of hard work for our interns, volunteers, 2 full-time staff, and board as we collaborate with our NGO partners. This week, we signed these checks as we granted out over $75,000 to provide better health care for mothers and their families in Mali and Nepal.

THANK YOU for making this possible Your classic play it cool because you're visiting your old stomping grounds at Princeton and pretend you're not cold but in actuality, you're freezing picture. 20 years, 2 weeks, and counting. What a journey with this woman. I love her...and I want to keep growing in love, honor, and respect. Great to catch up with @jlin7 in Brooklyn at the Nets game. Grateful for his partnership with @onedayswages to support our Girls' Empowerment Fund. The season hasn't been what he hoped for with major injuries...but we can't wait to see you back on the court soon and do what you do. Stay encouraged, brother. Thanks for your faithful witness for Christ.
