  1. Hey Kate!

    Report from Dennis: "HDnet cameras are set up behind the soundboard tonight...perhaps filming?"

    ReplyDelete
  2. I predict no Charlotte tonight solely on the basis that they are in Charlotte! ;-) Seriously I hope they do crank out a great show and my guess for opener is... Plainsong. I was going to say Shake Dog Shake but it's way too improbable.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Well that's interesting Craig! Video please!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Cat: "65 gets better and better"

    ReplyDelete
  5. Jerry - I had been SURE all tour that Charlotte would be played in Charlotte and Charlotte only.
    Last night proved me wrong.
    I'm not sure what I think anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hi COF gang! Looking forward to some chatting tonight! I'll be back later after I get my hair cut.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Opener will be The Holy Hour, followed by Labyrinth and A Short Term Effect.

    Encore 1 will be a psychedelic with BirdMadGirl, Bananafishbones, Piggy in the Mirror and Sex, Eye, Make-up.

    Encore 2 will be the long awaited Faith encore

    Encore 3 will be a dementia-filled encore with Give Me It, Doubt, The Kiss and Pornography

    Yup!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hey Jerry and Elise!

    But they HAVE to play Charlotte again. No one has audio or video of it yet. : )

    ReplyDelete
  9. Conventional thinking would agree with you Jo but you know how it is.

    I'd love to know how the setlist process goes. I can't imagine it being very democratic, RS must have the final say, no?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi, Craig! Please allow me to formally congratulate you on your honors yesterday. You deserve every bit of it. You are loved.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Re= 65 DOS: They were great last night. I was happy to see the crowd appreciate them. They deserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. So is everyone still on a high from yesterday.

    v - warning - a Simpsons reference is on its way!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I was buzzing sooo much after yesterday's concert chat that you could not wipe the smile from my face.

    I think I must have looked like Apu the time he ran the Kwikemart for 48 hours straight and thought that he had become a hummingbird.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You forgot Encore 4 Pierre!

    Encore 4: I want to be old, heroin face, plastic passion and pillbox tales!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think Pierre is as drunk as Scott was last night. : )

    Thank you Kate.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lol, Elise!!! I felt the same way!!! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Pierre's drunk.

    Even I had a celebratory drink last night!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Dennis: "Cat lies, 65 gets more and more tedious ; )"

    War!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Craig: No more warmongering!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. man I dunno about any of you but I'm dreading venturing outside. It's a 111 where I am.

    ReplyDelete
  21. elise - Nice hybrid! "Bon joir" is the perfect mix of "bonjour" and "bonsoir"! lol That one was cute! Hat's off to the effort and thought :oD

    ReplyDelete
  22. Elise: You can do my drinking for me. : )

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like 65 days but they are one of those bands you either like or don't.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Damn Jerry, I thought it was hot here! : )

    ReplyDelete
  25. I keep forgetting that they're back on the East coast, closer to my own timezone now. Now I don't have to be up at all hours to check the setlists. :P

    For those of you who care, I JUST finished up this. At least I think it's done. Might as well show it off a bit to a decent target audience... ;)

  26. Hi Cure heads.

    Hi COF Kittens.

    Hi Craig.

    Good afternoon.

    I hope a good show, and again CS

    :)

    Last night the boys had a long night, up 3 hrs show,surely they ended tired, so, because of that, can we expect a lenghty show tonight ?

    Craig, they travelled by bus or airplane to Charlotte ?

    ReplyDelete
  27. V: What about World of Warcraft-mongering? : )

    ReplyDelete
  28. Fantac - it would have been clever if it was intentional. Still waking up

    ReplyDelete
  29. A different kind of hot but hot none the less Craig.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dennis: "Looks like a single camera on stage...probably testing lighting for later"

    ReplyDelete
  31. Craig: That will be okay, I suppose. ;)

    ReplyDelete

  33. V: Just had to get a WOW reference in for Elise. : )

    ReplyDelete
  34. Gerri! I didn't know you were a traitor to your own board! :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Craig: I figured that was for her. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi Mad Bob. Not sure, but I think they were taking the buses.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Dennis: "Militant security. No Cameras got in"

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi all! I too found 65DS to be tedious. They just sounded like a bunch of guys doodling (loudly) on a Casio. My friend said that her head hurt once they stopped. I predict that after this tour they will never be heard from again.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Craig - I get enough WoW references in my world ;P

    Now if he would just hurry up so I can drop him to work and be back before the lights go and Adagio for Strings start playing.

    ReplyDelete
  40. hey elise - are you the one that has mentioned MUDs? Or am I misremembering?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Pierre, shhhhh!

    ... I prefer to not stick into specific Cure-gangs ;)

    Thanks guys :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. Kate - sorry it wasn't me. I think someone may have said it at me, but I still don't know what it is

    ReplyDelete
  43. Kate: I was the one who mentioned MUDs the other night. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I usually stash my small camera down my pants... never hav a problem getting it in. Are these venues frisking?

    ReplyDelete
  45. i guarantee you all that tonight they are going to play freakshow. this is not a wild guess- it's a FACT. there is NO DOUBT in my mind. anybody want to bet???

    ReplyDelete
  46. Craig: Yep, have a look at the dorkiest girl in the room! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Geri: That is gorgeous. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. thanks Elise... you and all the regulars have me laughing a ton... just don't know how anyone can get anything done when this site seems to ALWAYS have stuff going on.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ah, thanks V... I used to be pretty into one particular MUSH, but it was more social, rather than character driven. It's still up, but I odn't go anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thanks Craig. i hope they have rested enough, for doing a great show tonight.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks Craig!

    And Jerry no... Roger isn't here, I don't think. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Who's a traitor? Are you a traitor? What's a traitor?

    Geri, your painting is great. Seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Kate: I was on a MUSH at one point, but I didn't spend much time there. :) Don't even remember where/what it was!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Kendra- Story of my life for the past month or so! lol

    ReplyDelete
  55. MB - Wow! I think that is just about the bravest call of the tour to date!! I dunno, it sould be easy to take your money ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dennis: "One handheld and one overhead crane cam onstage...Definently testing as they are looking at the floor sometimes and spinning around"

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks Geri, I think that Scarlet letter is hanging around me somewhere! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  58. All - Is Cat in Charlotte tonight or will we enjoy her presence (and calls!) on here?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Kendra - this site is addictive - but fortunately it is daytime here, so ALL i am missing is work - no biggie!

    ReplyDelete
  60. thanks elise- i'm a daredevil!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Fantac - Cat says "I'm in Charlotte tonight and I'm gonne be rockin my tits off"

    ReplyDelete
  62. Altr2elise, I'll think of you at work while I sit here at home relaxing =)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Cat's a;always such a classy dame =)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Pierre: Thank you dear :D I really appreciate it!

    Jerry: I was going to admit my own traitorship in Roger's thread but I figured I'd let you have all the glory ;)

    ReplyDelete
  65. elise - you're getting good at this! ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  66. brb - gotta drop the hubby at work. Fuck the road rules, I should be back on time for OOTW.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Kate offers jpx a glass of wine. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. what will cat do with her tits when they rock off? that's so sad!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thanks Kate, I'll take it! Actually it's only 7:30pm here, a bit too early for wine. I pour a glass when the boys hit the stage =)

    ReplyDelete
  70. pshaw, jpx! Not too early. :)

    Do you have a preferred varietal?

    ReplyDelete
  71. It's cool Geri, no problems! I took it like a champ. I do love how some of the regulars came to my defense by saying I live in AZ and had heatstroke! Fuckers! ;-)

    I knew Rog was kidding, it's all good.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Any clue about the stage cameras tonight ?

    ReplyDelete
  73. hi and bye...look foward to the setlist...later...elise, go see the wombats in August.

    ciao

    ML

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hellogeri---I love the picture! Very cool!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Kate, just cheap white wine!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Kate grins at jpx... I have learned that price often does not indicate quality! :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Jerry: I cracked up. :D What a bunch. Roger's a sweetheart.

    Oh, and if anyone wants super in-your-face detail, click "all sizes" on the link on top of the painting and you can see how horrible I am at painting chest hair, really. I just gave up. :D

    ReplyDelete
  78. So, V - do you remember which MUD you were on?

    ReplyDelete
  79. hello everyone!
    how is everybody today/tonight/tomorrow? ;p

    just got done listening to the 1st mbv concert in 16 years! wild and wooly!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Kate and v, what the hell is MUD?

    ReplyDelete
  81. V: But that's why we love you! : )

    ReplyDelete
  82. nada mas, jerry. its all scary and stormy here!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yeah well you are missing a nice and hot 111 here in the PHX.

    ReplyDelete
  84. That's cool, V!

    jpx - it's kinda hard to explain. I was on a MUSH: multi-user shared hallucination. :)

    it was live text-based interaction....

    ReplyDelete
  85. ::::Hello y'all::::

    Hope everyone's in for a great show...the Boys must be tired after last night's show, though!

    ReplyDelete
  86. jpx:

    ReplyDelete
  87. Ohh Jerry...you're right....it is HOT in PHX....

    HOT...HOT...HOT even....

    glad I'm flying o NY tomorrow :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Mad Bob: The cameras are there for HDnet. It's a cable channel that broadcasts HD content.

    ReplyDelete
  89. They practiced Charlotte Sometimes last night so it would be that much better when they play it tonight in front of the cameras :)

    (hi all)

    ReplyDelete
  90. 111?! ugh. i will NEVER miss phoenix.

    multiuser dungeon? what are you guys into? i hope thats a game!

    the only games i play now are guitar hero and katamari damacy. i hope we get an all cure guitar hero game! how cool would that be?

    ReplyDelete
  91. cameras = filming for CureTV to be featured on COF.

    Craig: I'm sure Robert will be calling you soon to set this up :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hi Sugar. Yup 2 things you can count on, taxes and hot weather in phoenix in the summer!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Scotch for me.. we (the kittencult society) just added a Scotch appreciation sub division. I guess thats not cure related though. so yeah.. crossed fingers for an amazing setlist for the mystery cameras tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I like the way Morris thinks. : )

    ReplyDelete
  95. Craig, I forgot to tell you that thanks to your post on your news page about my lost Robert doll in Toronto (which I thought for sure was destined to end up in a dumpster), Daren Butler confirmed for me that he actually did pick it up, and he's going to give it to Robert for me like I intended. :)

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yeah Sofia but when you are freezing in the winter picture me in my shorts and t shirt having a hang outdoors! :-) Then you will miss phoenix!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Sofia: I looooooove Katamari Damacy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Thanxs Craig, ok, mmm pity that only in the US is possible to see this HD channel.

    :(

    ReplyDelete
  99. Sofia: I would kill for a Cure guitar hero. : )

    ReplyDelete
  100. Geri, this is so great! Now you'll have to break in Robert's house to retrieve it! :D

    ReplyDelete
  101. speaking of charlotte sometimes - i havent heard about taping from the past couple of shows. and i really want to hear audio of the last parts of the tour

    ReplyDelete
  102. V: You are just...man! Katamari too! : )

    ReplyDelete
  103. Hey Craig...hope youy are having a great day!!

    BTW, Do you have another job or is this your full time gig? Keeping up with ya'll is tough :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. This comment has been removed by the author.

  105. Geri: That is fantastic news! So glad they found him!

    ReplyDelete
  106. "Katamari do your best!" *dances*

    Craig: I am *not* a man! ;) (Lol, that's what I thought you said at first.)

    ReplyDelete
  107. Pierre: I plan on getting it back from him, somehow. How crazy would that be? Coolest Cure memorabilia ever. The little guy travelled with me all over Canada already, but I didn't expect him to do a complete US tour as well... he's a groupie for sure :D

    ReplyDelete
  108. v, do you? id like to wad you up into my liiiiiiiiiiiiiiife!


    jerry, i hate cold weather too. but i hate hot weather more. when youre 11 and you wear a black turtleneck and tights everyday, puberty and the phoenix sun is your enemy!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Oopppsss...correction: Filmimg for CureTV to be featured EXCLUSIVELY on COF :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. Dennis: "HDnet cameras are all manned. They are taping for sure...How much and what for are the real question"

    ReplyDelete
  111. Sofia: That is so sweet! I will roll you up into my Katamari any day of the week! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  112. Thanks, Kate - I was way off, the entire time I thought you were talking about drugs!

    ReplyDelete
  113. and since they're taping, i'm sure they'll play UTS for an opener... they'll want to spotlight their new stuff... plus the lighting and projection is gorgeous for that song.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  114. V - I think I had that one figured out. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  115. Good point Sofia. My middle daughter manages to wear a hoodie everyday although I haven't seen it lately...

    ReplyDelete
  116. Morris continues to impress me with his clear logic. : )

    ReplyDelete
  117. jpx: Oh! No, not at all. :) Sorry for the confusion.

    ReplyDelete
  118. craig, how wicked would it be to play the fteotdgs solo on guitar hero?

    when my boyfriend beat 'welcome to the jungle' on expert i had my way with him! it was so sexy. but fteotdgs? oh buddy...


    he's a wonderful guitar player, but never really rocks out to any cure. he likes to play lullbys on his acoustic for me

    ReplyDelete
  119. Cat: "2 geriatrics how cute"

    ReplyDelete
  120. "Welcome to the Jungle" - yay for manly songs!!

    ReplyDelete
  121. This filming thing is very interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  122. gotta run guys, but I'll check in with you later if I can...to much to do before my flight tomorrow.....

    enjoy the evening :)

    ReplyDelete
  123. Hellogeri: You've managed to make the Schecter guitar look gorgeous :)

    that's a great image... wow :)

    ReplyDelete
  124. It´s just me or really UTS & PS has the same screen projections ?

    ReplyDelete
  125. and I'm going home, have a great time in NYC Sugar!

    I'll drop in laters

    ReplyDelete
  126. Enjoy the show and chat geeks. Unfortunately (or fortunately - it depends lol), I won't take part in tonight's chat. I'm just going to follow the set-list. I have to finish correcting... Procrastination can only take you so far huh... Have fun!!!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Okay, guess I better go home now. I'll be back off and on in a little while, everyone! :)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Cat: "Peeps watching is hilarious"

    ReplyDelete
  129. Bye V!
    Bye Jerry!
    Bye Fantac!

    ReplyDelete
  130. jpx: what you must think of me!?

    ReplyDelete
  131. ya gotta play charlotte in charlotte !!

    ReplyDelete
  132. shouldn't they be starting soon?

    ReplyDelete
  133. Bye, Fantac!

    Hi Sofia and everyone who I haven't said hi to yet

    ReplyDelete
  134. Hi Craig,
    Hi to all! (1st post for me) but I did read all 2000+ from last nite! I have felt hung over all day (due 100% to the unbelievable show last night)I wish I could see the show tonight...at about 6pm I had to give up on the idea of getting a babysitter and driving up to see it all again!

    To Craig - I tend to send you emails of thanks when I am blissed out about the cure and would like to do it here -Thank you so much for all you do! Oh and I saw the RS mention of COF - life is good! (Sorry if off topic I'll behave and just enjoy the comments).

    ReplyDelete
  135. wow geri that painting is amazing, what else have you got ??

    ReplyDelete
  136. oh elise it doesnt matter what you say! :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. am i going crazy? where are people seeing paintings?

    ReplyDelete
  138. morris: I have a friend who owns an Ultracure and I had to get her to send me closeups so I could figure out exactly how it looked, haha.

    I actually enjoyed painting the guitar more than most of the rest of the picture! Well... almost... :D

    ReplyDelete
  139. Sofia - sing to me some more *grins from ear to ear*

    ReplyDelete
  140. Hi jennifer, welcome to the place to be if you truly are a Cure Fan.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  141. hellogeri: The stars and moons on the fret board make it look ver Cure-a-licious :)

    ReplyDelete
  142. C´mon Cure, please, i wanna see "here comes the waves".

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  143. Hey Jenny!

    Kate, I'm just such a nerd that I don't know anything about drug lingo. When you said MUSH I thought it meant "mushrooms". You didn't strike me as someone who was using drugs that why I was wondering what MUSH meant.

    ReplyDelete
  144. elise,

    hello image, sing me a line from your favorite song... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  145. Oops, sorry Jennifer, I thought you were Jenny for a second (another frequent COF poster). Welcome!

    ReplyDelete
  146. ps geri's the one who got the awesome thecureformfc tshirts made up that I was talking about...

    ReplyDelete
  147. jpx *grin*

    You aren't a nerd!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Geri - loved the t-shirts. we have seen the piccies.

    Sofia - another one of my favourites.

    ReplyDelete
  149. hellogeri: Your Forum design and that t-shirt were excellent looking! :)

    ReplyDelete
  150. and hello to you all, I just came in blabbing...lol

    ReplyDelete
  151. Hey Elise! is Perth on "The Goldcoast?"

    ReplyDelete
  152. Anah: "Small venue, chill crowd"

    ReplyDelete
  153. Morris - completely on the other side of the continent :(.

    Perth is on the West Coast

    ReplyDelete
  154. Nothing yet, another late start, that´s why at the encores they have issues on finished them properly.

    :(

    ReplyDelete
  155. Cat: Tall mofo in front of me. Kill tall peeps"

    ReplyDelete
  156. I don't mean to be impatient... but I hope they start soon. I have a meeting soon after the show so can't hang around too late I really should have taken holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  157. I have HDNet. I hope they air it soon.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Maybe Cat can ask if the can swap seats.... get that little bit closer

    ReplyDelete
