@U2 Originals: June 2012

Here at @U2, one of the things we're most proud of is the original content we provide, created exclusively by our staff. In case you missed any of it in June, the highlights are posted here:

Kelley Eskridge and Idaliisa Partanen kicked off the month by revealing the answers to the May Question of the Month, which asked fans what they would make for Bono's birthday if they weren't allowed to get him a store-bought gift.

In our weekly Off the Record column, Matt McGee talked about Bono's recent appearance on late night television, while Arlan Hess discussed her recent trip (as a school chaperone) to Ireland. Later in the month, Sherry Lawrence noted how wonderful the new U22 fan club gift was to receive, and the following week she re-created the entire Barcelona U2360 kickoff show with clips from YouTube.

Our popular "Like a Song" series continued with an essay about "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" by Jill Marino. Liseth Meijer wrote the May "Like a Video" essay about "The Unforgettable Fire."

The "U2 Lists" piece for this month was authored by Tim Neufeld, who came up with The Top 9 U2 Songs for a Father's Day Playlist.

Gary Boas provided the "What if..." musing this month, with his piece What if U2 Were Trapped in the Lemon Until Today?

In addition, Tim Neufeld wrote a special piece, about the new film General Admission: Layin' it on the Line for U2.
