Cure chat tonight

Rev. Heron will be hosting another Cure chat tonight at 7pm pacific, 8pm mountain, 9pm central, 10pm eastern. Topic is Mix 13 Singles & B-Sides - What's your favorite?

163 comments:

  1. How is this different than posting messages on your blog? Just curious. Is the difference that it's by Rev. Herron? Does this person have special info?

  2. Muld: The chat is the Rev's thing, not mine. You can do both. Some people just prefer to have an actual chat room.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Muld: You were asking about the whole tv ratings thing the other day. Well guess who's a part of the Nielsen ratings survey for the next week?

    What should I watch? : )

    ReplyDelete
  4. I say you watch NOTHING! That'll show 'em! :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Craigers, you gotta watch BSG and The 4400! (the end of Season 3 and last half of Season 4 are great); it's also by Ron Moore's former boss, Ira Steven Behr, who guided him toward more political writing. I'd actually say Mr. Behr is better at pulling off the climax in his writing than Moore. Even though Moore's BSG is so much better, it has a lot to do with BSG not being censored and having a massive budget, and The 4400 being censored like mad; they still pulled off a few swipes at unfettered capitalism, the military industrial complex, and Bill Gates, though. :)

    You can just leave your TV on during those shows, I guess.

    Man, I wish I were a Nielsen guy. Lucky Americans.

  6. By the way, DVRing doesn't count. Apparently, Sci Fi knew a massive percent of their audience DVRed BSG, but, since advertizers would only pay for real time viewers, they weren't willing to save the show beyond Season 4.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Muld: I'm doing the journal version of the ratings. I have to write down any shows I watch over the next week, then I mail it in. After a day and a half, I have nothing written down.
    : )

    When are the BSG repeats on?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Doctor Who is on tonight! :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. i havent watched doctor who in a while (shame on me!) - last time i did, rose wasnt in it, something happened to her? is she back?

    ReplyDelete
  10. this is way off topic, but who cares? i just finally bought the aol sessions ep from itunes. wow! i really am surprised at how good the self titled songs come off. pretty cool little purchase. great versions of JLH and deep green sea also.

    ReplyDelete
  11. No Dr. Who talk please. I'm still way behind! : )

    ReplyDelete
  12. We don't get sci fi.com in Canada. Try this:

    http://www.scifi.com/schedulebot/index.php3

    The amazing "Epiphanies" airs at 5 am, when that ungrateful bitch Roslin drives Baltar on an ambitious course against her. It looks like the channel that made BSG airs it less than Space, which actually respects the show and reairs the the reruns here in Canada in prime time.

    I don't watch much TV, except some news or when I feel like screaming at CNN, or just flipping around myself.

    Thank God, I actually knew this guy who encouraged me to watch BSG. Same guy sold his Cure ticket, though, so no one's perfect.

    God, they make you do a journal. How boring! I thought they hook up your TV with some weird device. I'd be so embarrassed at all the late night softcore I watch. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. the best part about the BSG mid-season 4 finale was when laura roslin (censored for content) and then gaius, not realizing (censored for content) actually had to come back from (censored for content).

    but what i couldn't believe they actually did was when the old man woke up from (censored for content) and then he and tigh (censored for content).

    what a finale! can't wait for february!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm scared once I register on itunes, I'll accidentally buy all kinds of stuff, monkeybutt. I also worry about the quality, even though I probably won't hear the difference. I wish The Cure would release that amazing version of "M" on CD from when the band was a 3 piece in 2005 or so.

    I might eventually register, though. I love very little of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but I love that song "Turn Into" (acoustic) on itunes.

    I haven't seen much of Dr. Who since the original series. I remember the Dalleks and the 3-note ominous melody! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. that was really the only reason i ever got it, muld. to pick and choose certain songs without having to buy crummy whole albums. like, for instance, 'molly' by sponge. great song, shit album. i was pissed (like probably lots of other people) that for awhile you had to buy the whole album. glad i held out.

    i actually didn't even download my first song until maybe a year or so ago. i was afraid, too, that i'd download everything in sight. but i'm too much of a purist for that; can't resist trolling the record store aisles and playing vinyl- sounds so much better than mp3s. i'll download mp3s if there's no way they'll ever turn up anywhere else (lost wishes, lost flowers, etc) or if i wouldn't want to pay for the actual CD (for some reason, i really like kate nash. shoot me?)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Shoot us both Scott, I really like her too. I saw here on Live from Abby Road last night on demand and it was brilliant...

    I'm with you all on BSG and the 4400. I was really pissed to find out that the 4400 had been shit canned without a proper burial. I hate when they leave ALL the ends loose, no closure. They did that to me with Carnival and John from Cincinnati too, bastards!

    Don't be "scurred" about iTunes, embrace the chaos!

  17. So Kate Nash is good? I only know her from her collaborations with my man Billy Bragg. Really liked their duet on A New England. Might need to check her out.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Kate is very fun, in the Lily Allen vein. However I must say that her song "Nicest Thing" has a very Cure Disintegration era vibe to it. Reminds me of Same Deep Water...

    JD

    ReplyDelete
  19. Aww, there will other COF chats in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  20. And Craig's here too. It just doesn't get better than this

    ReplyDelete
  21. no running hug for Craig? : (

    ReplyDelete
  22. Craig - I wasn't sure if you would want a running hug... but now *moves back for a long run up...... RUNNING HUG*

    ReplyDelete
  23. Elise: I forget a "be" in my post.
    There will be other COF chats.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Elise: Why wouldn't I? Or do cocks not hug monkeys? : )

    ReplyDelete
  25. Craig - LOL! Apparently cocks do like monkeys.

    I thought maybe you were a little shy :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Elise: Help us solve a debate. V and I hear "pony" in Sleep, but Cat swears she hears "bunny". What do you hear?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Elise: A little shy is an understatement, but I can still accept (and return) a running hug at anytime. : )

    ReplyDelete
  28. Having a listen - will confirm in a moment

    ReplyDelete
  29. My vote is in - I think it is Pony

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes! 3 against 1 Cat. : P

    And it makes more sense for a pony to "kick".

    ReplyDelete
  31. Elise: What do you think about Down Under? Could it possibly be about an encounter between Rock & Roll Jo and Robert? ; )

    ReplyDelete
  32. Although, Thumper had a pretty mean kick on him :)

    It may be about the time Robert and I spent together - but I am not at liberty to divulge the details

    ReplyDelete
  33. I cannot wait until the Wishful Thinking tour..... I am really looking forward to coming to the States and meeting up with my CoF Cronies

    ReplyDelete
  34. Aw, I ran away too quickly earlier! :)

    *Belated running hugs for Craig and Elise*

    ReplyDelete
  35. All of these running hugs are going to leave us with some serious bruising. : )

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sorry! I'll try to be more gentle next time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh I can handle it, just worried about you and Elise. : )

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh I see. ;) Well, I think Elise and I will be just fine. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Don't worry about me.... I can look after myself

    ReplyDelete
  40. I see...well I guess my concern is wasted on you two. Fine, I'll take it elsewhere then. : P

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh no you don't! We're not done with you yet! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sounds like trouble is a coming! : )

    ReplyDelete
  43. is it going to start to get sexy in here?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ask V and Elise...I'm innocent! : )

    ReplyDelete
  45. Craig - you mentioned cocks and monkeys first :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Aw man! No fair! I was talking Chinese astrology!

    ReplyDelete
  47. And wait a minute, cocks I get, but monkeys? How do they figure in? : )

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh, is that we were talking about ;P

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sorry - what is happening to my mind - it must be the late night...... hang on, it's afternoon here.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Well apparently only one of us was.
    : )

    ReplyDelete
  51. How could anyone think that Craig was anything other than perfectly innocent? :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Please don't mention dreams right now. : )

    ReplyDelete
  53. anyway, v - as Homer would say "perfectly innocent like a fox"

    ReplyDelete
  54. Who's been having sweet dreams?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Who said anything about sweet? ; )

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yes, much closer to sweat than sweet. : )

    ReplyDelete
  57. So they are sweat dreams then?

    ReplyDelete
  58. My dreams are a secret, but I'll tell you that Simon and Porl kissing are NOT involved! : )

    ReplyDelete
  59. oh... so your dreams are very different to mine then.... unless of course you substitute Porl with Robert

    ReplyDelete
  60. V: No one is teasing you, don't know what you're talking about. : )

    ReplyDelete
  61. I think I'm going to hell if it exists. : )

    ReplyDelete
  62. There is no such place - unless you count Kalgoorlie

    ReplyDelete
  63. Ok, I'll bite...what is Kalgoorlie?

    ReplyDelete
  64. A hellhole in the middle of WA. Lots of gold, no class.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalgoorlie

    ReplyDelete
  65. "Oh, there is a place, a place in hell, reserved for me and my friend"

    ; )

    ReplyDelete
  66. Morrissey - but don't think I'm clever - google is my friend

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lots of gold? Don't tell Dave, he'll try to WOW it. : )

    ReplyDelete
  68. That wasn't a quiz Jo. Just a statement of fact. : )

    ReplyDelete
  69. No risk of that, Dave hates Kal as much as I do.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Although, maybe I should send him to Kal for work now - I could disguise it with a WoW spin.

    ReplyDelete
  71. What happened to V? Did she pass out?
    : P

    ReplyDelete
  72. I thought maybe you had both left me to have a private conversation :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Have either of you been lurking on the meebo chat?

    You can tell me - I won't dob you in

    ReplyDelete
  74. I've never been on the meebo thing.

    ReplyDelete
  75. so you weren't the pretend RobertS the other night.....

    ReplyDelete
  76. Elise: No. I would never do anything dumb like that.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Cool - I wonder who it was.... whoever it was knew my real life name

    ReplyDelete
  78. Booo...I'm getting sleepy. :(

    ReplyDelete
  79. Noooooo, V!!!

    I'm gonna send you a new parcel next week!

    I was meant o go to the shops to get the stuff today - but some reason I have been stuck to the couch

    ReplyDelete
  80. Same here V. I'm all worn out. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  81. I AM INNOCENT! Must I keep repeating myself? : )

    ReplyDelete
  82. Actually, V has been telling me all sorts of deranged fantasies about Simon and Porl kissing. Now I'm all hot and bothered. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  83. Shit - no wonder you are tired - I just realised it is 4am in your world Craig! and not much further behind for you v

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yeah, it's the time, that's it! : )

    Goodnight/afternoon Elise. I'm going to tuck in TimTam and get to bed.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Elise: Thank you so much for sending me a new parcel! I'm sure I will get this one! I really appreciate it. Have a good day!! :)

    Craig: You promised you wouldn't tell everyone about my Si/Porl fantasies! Hmmph, I trusted you! :P

    Goodnight. :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Simon and Porl kissing? Have to say that doesn't do it for me

    ReplyDelete
  87. Elise: It was a joke. It's a whole other thing...trust me. : )

    ReplyDelete
  88. Sleep well, Craig and V!

    I hope we will talk soon.

    Give TimTam a cuddle for me

    ReplyDelete
  89. I'll trust you, Craig - but do not abuse my trust ;)

  91. BUNNY YOU MUTHAFUCKAZ! I can't wait for ROBERT to prove me RIGHT! And then you all owe me BIG TIME!

    If he says "pony" instead of "bunny" I will poke out my eardrums, cuz I gots damn good hearing and am rarely wrong!

    Muthafuckin' BUNNY!

    SUCK ON THAT SUKAZ!

    ReplyDelete
  92. CONEJO

    LAPIN

    BUNNY

    you're all deaf!

    ReplyDelete
  93. indeed

    and then you will all owe me!

    mwuhahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  94. I am the evil bunny

    I am going to start a new website called Lapin du Mal

    After all, bunnies are deceptive... you THINK they are cute, but just beneath that soft cuddly exterior lurks a black black heart, just oozing with malevolence.

    Beware the Beelzebub Bunny!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Have you ever seen Watership Down? I think the bunnies in that were psychotic.

    ReplyDelete
  96. i have not seen that elise... interesante!

    i have to admit that it makes more semantic sense for a pony to KICK... bunnies are not known for that gesture, per se...

    hmmmmmmm

    i still say it's BUNNY and i'm sticking to it!

    i'll even lay a bet on it...

    how about the loser(s) buy the winner (me) a plastic bunny? hmmmmmm?

    ReplyDelete
  97. i almost typed in underneaththestars.com.. songs been stuck in my head!

    totally off topic, but gillian anderson (scully from X files) is auctioning a meet with her at the premiere of the movie on ebay! OMGZ!!! i grew up with that show, i waant to meet her. remember when the band did More Than This for the movie?

    ReplyDelete
  98. The X-Files is my favorite show ever. I'm dying to see the new movie.

    ReplyDelete
  99. X-Files RULES. I'm looking forward to the movie!

    Hmm...but why are we talking about TV shows here?

    ReplyDelete
  100. Elise!! So you're still here :D (*BIG RUNNING HUG*)

    ReplyDelete
  101. Elise, how's everything? Are you still busy at work?

    ReplyDelete
  102. Jenny - where else would I be?

    How are you?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Work has settled down. My project is implemented and is up and running.

    I move onto my next project properly on Monday - so I will be busy again - but nowhere near as bad as I was a couple of weeks ago

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'm mostly fine, except that I won't receive my Cure single for another week or so... I really envy you and everyone who already has the single ;) How do you like the single?

    ReplyDelete
  105. I got the single yesterday. It's OK - I prefer the live version of SWID - but I like Down Under

    ReplyDelete
  106. Nice to hear that you're doing better at work. I'm going to finish a book I really hated (I'm an editor) next Monday or Tuesday, and then I'll have a day off! Reaaaally looking forward to that.

    ReplyDelete
  107. It must be tough when you don't like what you are reading. Not like you can just throw it away and say "I can't be bothered finishing that"

    ReplyDelete
  108. Exactly! And that's the toughest part of my job. I have to spend at least four to six months on each book, and I can't really pick what I have to read at work. :(

    And did you have the waffles? Do you like them? :D

    ReplyDelete
  109. i need to meet agent scully and mulder, they are my childhood heroes!

    DUDE, I WILL SELL YOU MY KIDNEY FOR AUCTION MONEY!!
    or at least rights to it - like the right to take it if you need it years from now, it's young and healthy!

    ok, im off to the beach, see ya peeps :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. Wait a minute. Is it "waffle" or "wafer"? Can't remember... I can only remember its Chinese name.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Wafer is right.

    I finished the milk caramels yesterday, so I am going to try the wafers - probably tomorrow. I have been trying to take my time.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Good night, Elise! Talk to you soon here! (*hug*)

    ReplyDelete
  113. Again guys, BUY THE SINGLE!!! Don't bum it from friends! : )

    ReplyDelete
  114. Cat: I'm with you!!! I hear "bunny"! And trust me when i say they can kick (professional experience)! Obviously Robert knows that too!!

    ReplyDelete
  115. ... can you guys imagine doing *running hugs* in slow motion? =))Sorry, it's a weird cartoony thing I have... I'm serious: I loved the idea of *running hugs*!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Yes, I can imagine that, but I'm still having trouble figuring out Chris' "fuck me running" idea.

    I've drawn up charts, graphs, and even a "position" paper on it, but still...no idea how to make it work.
    : )

    ReplyDelete
  117. I think that there are things in this world that appear physically impossible until you are in the moment..... but I am not convinced that fucking whilst running is actually one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  118. That Craig and his charts!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Oh you love my charts V, don't even pretend like you don't. ; )

    Elise: As I was just telling V, I was joking with the above message. My research shows that it is entirely doable. : )

    ReplyDelete
  120. Oh Craig, of course I bought the single. I actually pre-ordered the single when it was available, as were the past two singles. The trouble is I live in a far-far away land and won't receive it in a week or so. :(

    ReplyDelete
  121. Jenny: That comment wasn't directed at you. I was talking to Shawn and Cat, but deleted their posts.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Jenny: I'm very sorry if you thought I was talking to you. : (

    ReplyDelete
  123. Hi guys!!!! Can't stay away from this place.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Craig: Of course I love them! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  125. *Running hug for V and Elise*

    ReplyDelete
  126. Craig - For a minute I did think you were talking to me...sometimes Internet can be a trouble. But don't worry about it! :)

    Hi Elise and V!!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Time to make some yummy curry for lunch. I'll see you guys soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Elise - oh, I'd love to! :D Spicy or not spicy?

    ReplyDelete
  129. HA! That's THREE peeps in the bunny camp, Craig. So we're three to three now.... Bunny Brats versus Puny Ponies... and the BBs are gonna KICK YO PUNY ASS!

    LAPIN!

    ReplyDelete
  130. je voulait juste dire que iTunes canada n'a pas les nouvelle s chansons

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'm a day late, bit I gotta say I think it's "bunny"....Mix 13 could go either way..but the live versions definitely sound like bunny.

    ReplyDelete
  132. ..and I imagine a big, scary, Donnie Darko-esque bunny too.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Hubby says "Pony".
    I played SWID for the hubby, told him that it was an animal, and asked him what he heard. Without knowing the options, hubby said Pony...... it's now 4 to 3!!!

    Bring on the lyrics, RSX

    ReplyDelete
  134. Elise: by my count it's 4-4..guess we'll find out tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Tim - sorry - maths was never my strong point :)

    ReplyDelete
  136. IMO - give it to the "pony" and see if she kicks it

    makes more sense

    I say it's pony.
