  2. omg craig, did Yvonne send in the video of me during Wrong Number? LOL

    no way.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Yeah, that was Yvonne's. Found it while searching for the KROQ videos. You were rocking! : )

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hey Andy, have fun tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  5. sure thing brian, im so happy i was able to make it to every show.

    i had to go back to school today to take a final exam or else i would have been camping out for Kimmel.

    I'm leaving now guys, i will text craig. and pictures too.

    ReplyDelete
  6. at what time does the show start? this isn't being webcasted is it?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Carlos: No, it will air tomorrow night on US tv. Gates open at 6:15 Pacific. Not sure what time they go on.

    ReplyDelete
  8. No. The show is broadcast live on the east coast, but they usually only show one and a half songs. One song is featured, and another one is played while the credits roll.

    However, usually additional songs are posted up after broadcast on the ABC website.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The show is not being broadcast live tonight.

  10. http://abc.go.com/latenight/jimmykimmel/index?pn=upcomingguests#t=0&d=160548

    It's being shown tomorrow. Hopefully that link goes to where I want it, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  11. These TV shows sure could do a much better job of treating their guests. I can't believe they have you standing out in that weather...

    ReplyDelete
  12. yeah, and then when the COF peeps scream in the audience, they'll probably pan over to them and say "How about those Cure fans" and everyone will be soaking wet, eyeliner running down their faces, lol. Robert would be proud.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've always thought it would be really cool to attend a concert in the rain - of course I would want it to be warm rain and also not raining like a "motherfucker".

    What are the odds of them playing The Baby Screams....... "heaven, give me a sign".

    ReplyDelete
  14. My vote goes for The Drowning Man

    ReplyDelete
  15. Guess it won't be Prayers for Rain. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  16. What about Prayers for Rain? :P I feel bad for Andy.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Darn you, Craig! lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. Show has been canceled due to the weather.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow - the show got cancelled? Those poor people that have been waiting in the rain.

    Any word on whether it will be rescheduled?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Not canceled. Just moved inside. Only two songs though.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Bummer - I was hoping it would be rescheduled for tomorrow so I would be able to sit and chat at home.

    But a bigger bummer for those people with tickets, that have lined up in the rain, and will now only get 2 songs :(

    ReplyDelete
  22. Andy is in. Trying to get to the front.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Andy is fast gaining LEGEND status in my books!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Why does inside mean fewer songs? Because of the time it will take to move everything?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Does anyone know the name of Jason's drum tech? Andy really needs to know it, for some reason.

    ReplyDelete
  26. V: I would assume so, but not sure.

    ReplyDelete
  27. *waves hello*
    Just catching up. Wow, Andy surely is gaining legend status. I am tired just reading about all of the excitement.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Andy: "At this moment I have no clue what's going on. But if anything happens I know I'm in. Some fan causing drama. Getting kicked out for being drunk or something."

    ReplyDelete
  29. Andy: "I feel bad if these people get turned away. They've all shown true dedication."

    ReplyDelete
  30. Andy: "185 people in line. Everyone is being directed to the front of the building. Security is telling them to go to the lobby in an orderly fashion or else it's OFF."

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOL. I love those scary threats the security people like to make. "Orderly fashion or its off!".

    Sounds like something a father would scream to the kids making noise in the backseat

    "We'll turn this car around right now!!" :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. "If you kids don't stop your complaining, I'll tell Santa not to visit your house"

    ReplyDelete
  33. That's what I was thinking. Like the security guy with the shaved head is going to go to Jimmy Kimmel and say, "We canceled The Cure thing. Those fans just weren't very orderly. You're going to have to do some filler for ten minutes or so...Just FYI, Mr. Kimmel"

    ReplyDelete
  34. I missed you too! How have you been? How's work been treating ya?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Work has been busy - and today I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY do NOT want to be here.... which is not like me at all.

    Are you in your new job now? Are you enjoying it?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I stood in line, got turned away, my phone is now dead from getting wet :( but I still love the cure

    ReplyDelete
  37. Andy says Thank You to Kelly and Yvonne for answering his question.

    ReplyDelete
  38. *passes Mark a warm blanket*

    Sux about getting turned away.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Andy: "Of course people are trying to sneak in line. Security says as soon as sound check is over, we'll move in."

    ReplyDelete
  40. LOL. Funny you ask. Two months ago I couldn't wait to quit my old job. And just today those same people called me and asked me if I'd come in to talk to them about coming back after the first of the year. And I said I would. God help me, I missed them. I miss being busy. I miss the pull-your-hair-out stress of it all.

    This new job just isn't what I thought it would be. I don't hate it. Just bored to death. I keep calling it the IT Retirement Facility :)

    But they need to quit giving you so much work to do! They need to realize that getting the latest Cure dish is much more imperative! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Andy: "I'm hearing Prayers For Rain. Sound check. No way they will air this. lol."

    ReplyDelete
  42. Mark,

    That really sucks about getting turned away. Especially being lucky enough to be in the city and after standing outside in all that rain!

    You are a true believer!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Craig,

    That would be a riot if they played Prayers for Rain! They'd never play it on Kimmel. But maybe they'll play a couple of extra songs after the taping or something. Don't they do that sometimes?

    ReplyDelete
  44. DA - The pressures of this project will not lift for at least another 6-12 months :(

    We have been told that the project is shutting down for the holidays - so YAY, I have two weeks off as of Friday!!!!

    And then it will be full on in 2009.

    Of course if the Cure announce a tour, I think we ALL know where my priorities will lay.

    Isn't it CURE-ious that you are gonna end up back at the place that you hated. Sometimes the saying "better the devil you know" is sooooo true.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I hope they play some extra songs for the fans that have shown so much dedication to wait in the rain all day.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Andy: "Now hearing Hungry Ghost. Hopefully it's done better than at secret show. : )"

    ReplyDelete
  47. Elise, (Can I call you Jo, too?)

    That's awesome that they give you the two week break. And its going to be right at the first day of summer for you guys down there isn't it? You make sure and enjoy yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  48. DA - you want to call me Jo as well as Elise..... or instead of ;)

    Course ya can... it is my name, after all....

    So do I call you (eek, I hope I get this right) Tim?

    ReplyDelete
  49. The Hungry Ghost really grew on me. That was one of the 4:13 songs I was kind of iffy about. But after several times I kind of really started to like it.

    I really like the whole bit about the kimono coral floral print. Kinda groovy :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wow, very good! Yep. You can call me Tim.

    Or Tee-Tee (thats what my 18 month old nephew calls me because he can't quite say Tim yet, just the letter "T")

    ReplyDelete
  51. I feel so terrible for Mark. That really is depressing to be turned away after waiting in the cold rain.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Given that I have the ability to type Tim (and it uses four less keystrokes than Tee Tee) Tim, it is!

    How are the nephew(s)? If I remember correctly they were twins (eek - will this be my downfall?)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Andy: "Same Deep Water As You sound checked."

    Andy: "Once more they're sound checking PFR, they better play it dammit."

    Andy: "I hear they also sound checked earlier while everyone in line was around back. Prayers For Rain in the rain. How gloomy."

    ReplyDelete
  54. Right again! Very good memory!

    Yup. Two adorable little nephews. Who will have a ton of spoiledness coming their way on December 25. I think I am now officially a part-owner in Fisher Price.

    ReplyDelete
  55. If they have reheared PFR three times, I would be surprised if they didn't play it - besides, it sits beautifully with Robert's sense of humour.

    ReplyDelete

  57. Running Hug Elise!

    Just popping in to say hello.
    Going to bed soon. Snotface needs her rest ;)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Whoa! SDWAY?? Thats crazy!

    Wouldn't that just blow everybody away if they played THAT on Jimmy Kimmel? It won't happen in a million years, but it'll give us something to daydream about!

    ReplyDelete
  59. 8:11 - Andy: "C'mon Cure, stop teasing us."
    8:10 - Andy: "The Kiss is now being sound checked."

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hey Bells!!

    They have a great sense of humor playing SDWAY when everyone was in the rain.

    ReplyDelete
  61. This is one crazy soundcheck for a 2 song performance. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. V: I have a feeling it was the Kimmel people who said 2 songs. They don't know RS. : )

    ReplyDelete
  63. Why couldn't this be the webcast?

    ReplyDelete
  64. *running tackle, Bells*
    Sorry to hear you still have a face full of snot :(

    SDWAY - Craig - this may be one for the TARDIS!!!

    *waves at V*

    ReplyDelete
  65. OK. I've been trying to decipher that acronym. What does TARDIS mean? Or is it one of those PHT kind of deals? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Andy has been advised that he probably shouldn't turn his phone on once the taping starts, so we might not get the setlist until after the taping is finished.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Craig: Care to explain this one? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  68. 8:18 - Andy: "Sound check done. It seems."

    ReplyDelete
  69. Aww, that sucks about the updates.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Time And Relative Dimensions In Space!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Awwww, man. I was hoping it was something PG-13 rated at least :)

    But thanks for the explanation!

    ReplyDelete
  72. "i'm stuck in the tardis
    trapped in hyperspace
    one minute snake charming
    the next in a motorcade"

    ReplyDelete
  73. hi Andrea!

    I look forward to seeing how this turns out tonight.
    Andy is our hero!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I just read the notes from tonight and that is hilarious! Robert has such a wicked sense of humour. :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. DA: Hey, the TARDIS could easily be at least PG-13 ... ;)

    As they say, when the TARDIS is a-rockin...

    Or something. Nevermind me. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  76. 8:22 - Andy: "I think I just SWID for sound check. Only heard drums. Now hearing bass line to Hungry Ghost."

    ReplyDelete
  77. Aha! I just looked it up. That was the Dr. Who phone booth-type thing. Well if I approach one and the windows are fogged up (insert sultry saxophone music)...I'll just wait to make my phone call.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Aww, V. You been messing around with the Doctor? Or was it Ace? ; )

    ReplyDelete
  79. Tim - COF is sometimes Disney rated, but more often than not we veer into M-15 territory..... where we belong :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Wasn't SWID, Andy now says. Doing Freakshow now.

    ReplyDelete
  81. V: Oh I'll get it out of you! And then I'll find out about Ace. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  82. DA: That's probably a wise rule of thumb to adhere to. (Oh no - did I just dangle a preposition??)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Craig: Aww, must you get it out so soon? I promise I'll tell... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  84. V: That aint a preposition! : P

    ReplyDelete
  85. I try to keep my mind out of the gutter. But in all honesty, that's really where it belongs! :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Craig: Oh yeah, then what is it, pray tell?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Is it just me, or does it sometimes feel wrong to read these conversations?

    ReplyDelete
  88. 8:35 - Andy: "Now I hear from security that only 85 people are in. But I wasn't supposed to hear that. : )"

    ReplyDelete
  89. Elise: I'm sorry. I'm shutting up.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Craig and V: Please don't shut up on my account - I love it when you guys come out to play!

    ReplyDelete
  91. V you simply have no shame! You dangle that participle in front of me like that and get me all hot bothered and then you turn around and split Craig's infinitive as soon as I turn my back. :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. It's just sometimes I need a shower afterwards :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. So, they sorta sound checked HG twice....maybe thats the one? Would be cool anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Notice how I am changing the subject!!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  95. WTF?? The Cure is on tonight, right? According to the TV, its some Lady Gaga or somebody I never heard of performing tonight.

    Am I missing something or is the Cox Cable guide just messed up?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Where did everyone go..are you all in the shower???

    ReplyDelete
  97. Tim - are you serious????? even I know it is airing tomorrow night - and my care-factor is not high cos we don't even get Jimmy Kimmel here :(

    ReplyDelete
  98. Oh wow. Now I feel kind of dense. They're taping it for tomorrow night.

    Well at least we all know why its called Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. 8:46 - Andy: Kevin,one of the coordinators is telling security that they probably won't pull the plug and let them play long. Again a conversation I overheard."

    Yay Cure!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Jo, I never seem to get past the headline of a story. For some reason I thought it was airing tonight. But you guys are right. The TV said The Cure is on tomorrow night.

    Sometimes I wonder how I find my way home every day :)

    ReplyDelete
  101. THAT's IT!!!! It is official - Andy IS a LEGEND!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I concur. Andy's prowess as a Cure concert goer and supplier of information is quite impressive!!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Andy says that everyone was picking on him, telling him he was sending too many updates. : )

    ReplyDelete
  104. oooh just in time!

    HI EVERYBODY!

    ReplyDelete
  105. lots of updates, i see! that andy is a godsend

    ReplyDelete
  106. Well goodness. If they aren't going to be on the air tonight, I'm going to take my shot of Nyquil and head for bed.

    Jo, it was awesome to talk to you again. You are one of my favorites!

    V, I hope you know I was teasing about the dangling participle thing (Sometimes my wacked-up sense of humor offends people and its not intentional)

    ReplyDelete
  107. Yes, he's keeping me very busy. : )

    ReplyDelete
  108. I hope Andy told them to STFU - he is a star for caring so much for all of us who are living vicariously through him

    ReplyDelete
  109. Goodnight, DA. Don't forget to watch it tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  110. hello, future-girl :)

    whats everyone doing while waiting here?

    ReplyDelete
  111. Sleep well, Tim - it was FABULOUS catching up. I have missed the original 4tour chats.

    ReplyDelete
  112. *hugs Sofia*

    What am I doing while waiting? Pretending to be working ;)

    ReplyDelete
  113. *hugs*

    does that mean a lot of fake tapping on the keyboard? :D

    i'm drinking coconut water and watching letterman. pfft. weekdays...

    ReplyDelete
  114. Sofia - I don't have to fake tap on the keyboard, cos I add plenty of notes to the blog.

    But there IS:
    a) a lot of alt.tabbing between screens
    b) fake shuffling of paper
    c) chatting to myself about work stuff under my breath

    Letterman? blah - I don't get his popularity

    ReplyDelete
  115. haha. shuffling paper and chatting to yourself.

    eyes darting around...lol your office mates must be thinking "what in the world is that girl up to?"

    ReplyDelete
  116. AUGH...responsibilities! be back in a bit!

    ReplyDelete
  117. i guess Andy said he won't be able to text during the taping... don't want him to get in trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Morris: Yes. He will update us as soon as they allow the phones to be turned on again.

    ReplyDelete
  119. 10 years from now we'll be saying:

    "They won't let Andy run his Virtual Reality Rig Holo Goggles during the show!"

    ReplyDelete
  120. LOL - Morris

    DOH!!! Gotta go to a meeting at 2.30pm (in my world)

    I'll check in when I get back.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Bye, Craig - but never fear... I'll be back!!!

    I've missed these COF chats from work.... although I prefer it when I am at home and can chat without interruption :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. Andy is A-FREAKING-DORABLE and is the sweetest Cure fan!! I wanted to smuggle him home in my suitcase.

    Andy, do NOT let those crabby Cure peeps give you crap about texting updates, after all, YOU are THERE and we aren't! They just need some sleep and they will be back to their sweet selves very soon!

    ReplyDelete
  123. And I'm SO glad the Curse guys got in! They were so bummed about missing the secret gig, they need some great Cure performances now to make up for it!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Setlist: Freakshow, Hungry Ghost, Let's Go To Bed, Why Can't I Be You, Boys Don't Cry, Jumping Someone Else's Train, Grinding Halt, 10:15 Saturday Night, Killing An Arab.

    Thank you Amy! Will have a photo up in a minute.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Sorry for hijacking the thread, but...

    I've got what you want!

    The Real Snow White, live from The Troubadour.

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=I68M5GX0

    It's only the rough audio in 192kbps. The bass is distorted :( Not sure what's going on there, though I'm convinced my mics are on their last leg. Anyways, I'm going to work on mixing the entire show, splitting it up, and making it available over the next few days. I know you all want to hear the full show. Please be patient.

    ReplyDelete
  126. And thank you for the LA Times review, Heron!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Forgot to list Close To Me in the setlist.

    ReplyDelete
  128. WOW!

    Thanks Brian! :o

    and

    WOW!!!

    11 songs! At Kimmel!! WOOO!!! I'm SO happy for the Cure peeps there! They got totally rewarded for standing in the rain!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I can't count, apparently.
    STILL!! 10 SONGS!

    :o

    ReplyDelete
  130. Hey Rev! Great pics from this weekend. I particularly like the one of that guy in the black cap and glasses standing by another guy in a groovy purple shirt ; ) Getty Images captured the same two guys that evening at security check. Ha! Security. What fools!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Brian, what couple of handsome Cure fans they were! The cameras just couldn't get enough of them. =)

    ReplyDelete
  132. So obviously the boys soundchecked Prayers for Rain and SDWAY for their own personal amusement.

    I'm very glad that the rain-soaked crowd were given 10 songs. YAY!!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Or rehearsing for something else? : )

    ReplyDelete
  134. Craig - I like the way you think!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  135. awww andy is so great, he deserves to meet the cure, maybe it will happen during the nxt tour

    ReplyDelete
  136. Sara - what an amazing weekend you had!!!! How fantastic!

    Love the Boys Don't Cry video on meebo :)

    Can't wait to hear all about your adventures.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Just got home from the kimmel taping and It was great. Im a little disappointed that they were teasing us with prayers for rain but oh well I guess I'd have done it too if I were them. If it wasnt for all of my friends being there the experience of waiting in the cold and rain would have been awful but they made the time pass relatively quickly. It was raining off and on but when it was raining it was pretty bad. It was even hailing for a few minutes (sorry, I know you guys probably dont care what the weather was like but I just want to let you guys know what we went through). The worst part was waiting around wondering if they were going to cancel the show or not. As for the show the band was great but Robert still sounded a little tired. He seemed like he was in good spirits though because he was joking around. At one point he mentioned something about considering using a keytar but thought the better of it. During the indoor sound check (mind you there was an outdoor sound check of prayers for rain before they cancelled that and moved all the bands gear inside) It wasnt the actual band playing PFR or SDWAY. Brian and I were almost positive that it was the roadies soundchecking the bands gear because they werent really playing it right at all. They also briefly messed around with The Kiss but it was just a few bars of the song. Anyway Im really sad that this extended cure weekend has come to an end but from what I hear the bands not leaving for a few more days so you never know what could happen. One of us could run into them at disneyland or something. To those of you I met this weekend all I have to say is that it was a pleasure and I look forward to seeing you all again. Take care.

    Alexis Gonzalez
    The Curse

    P.S. Im sure this has probably been mentioned already but It seems funny to me that Simon and Robert were each wearing almost the exact same thing every night they performed. Robert with his hoodie sweater and cargo pants and SImon with his black tights, leather jacket and red scarf around his neck. I know I saw at least 3 different outfits on Porl and as for Jason I can never tell because every time I see him hes usually behind the drums. Anyway its just an observation.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Adding Andy's setlist notes that I didn't get to earlier in the night.

    10:20 - Andy: "Hungry Ghost with monotone vocals but strong ending. Freakshow. First two air. Security tells Rob "it's all yours". Robe asks for vocals to be higher, tests it with "oh oh oh, it's right there". Let's Go To Bed with extra lyrics. Close To Me. Why Can't I Be You with Rob touching head then looking at hand and weirded out about what was on his hand. Boys Don't Cry. JSET with Porl always checking his nails. Grinding Halt with extra lyrics. 10:15. Arab. "See you again really soon."

    Oh and during LGTB he paused and thought about a number and said 7. No surprise.

    Added lyrics in LGTB were from The Only One."

    ReplyDelete
  139. And Andy is with Brian & Bryce from The Curse, trying to track down info about another Cure event. : )

    And he did get to meet with Ricky, Jason's drum tech.

    Brian was with Jeremy, Robert's guitar tech, and says he's a great magician, and a very nice guy, too.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Alexis - Sounds like you had a great time - even if you were a little cold and wet.

    Craig - I see you sleep patterns haven't improved much ;)

    ReplyDelete
  141. Just wanted to enter all of that for the record. : )

    Jo: I just felt like the job hadn't been completed. Needed to enter more data. : )

    ReplyDelete
  142. I understand - I never sleep well when I know there is 'work' to be done.

    Thanks for everything you do, Craig. You are a LEGEND!!!

    ReplyDelete
  143. Besides, how can I get to sleep, when Andy keeps texting me about secret Cure events? : )

    It's okay Andy. The updates were/are great. It's only 4am for him.

    ReplyDelete
  144. More secret events? I'll be excited if it is true.

    And even though I never regret a decision made for the right reasons at the time, I can't help but wish I had decided to go to LA :(

    I'm watching KROQ at the moment.... you guys weren't kidding about the number of PHT shots.

    ReplyDelete
  145. 10:20 - Andy: " Why Can't I Be You with Rob touching head then looking at hand and weirded out about what was on his hand."

    OMG THATS HILARIOUS!!!!!!!! i would have DIED laughing!!!

    *IS dying laughing!!*

    Thank you Andy for sharing that!! I AM GRINNING FROM EAR TO EAR RIHGT NOW!!

    :D

    Andy <-- da man!!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Craig - they are seriously staying for a few more days?

    i wonder if they might go to NYC for some shows there...letterman? snl??


    poor guys - they need to rest.

    *fluffs pillows for the boys*

    ReplyDelete
  147. I agree they really need to take a day or two to rest up.

    ReplyDelete
  148. the cure staying??? wellll then they should come to texas! :D
    that would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Oh I totally forgot this was happening last night! I was so tired from staying up late on Sunday for KROQ that I went to bed early.

    Glad that Andy was able to get in and for his reports too! He's the Cure Man for sure! Wonder is there will be any more Cure Events like Andy said. Would be cool if they did something on the East Coast....Like come to Philly Please!!!!!!!!!

    Not sure I'll stay up tonight to watch since I can't stand Jimmy K but I'm sure it will be on his web site tomorrow and all around the net too.

  152. Last night drum tech Ricky confirmed it was him & other techs during soundcheck. None of it sounded bad btw, I could just tell it wasn't them, bass is what gave it away.

  154. Dear Robert - why not escape the cold and come to sunny Perth for Christmas? I'll put a shrimp on the barbie for you.

  156. "Rob touching head then looking at hand and weirded out about what was on his hand."

    LOL what???

    It would be great if they could come to the East coast, but I can't imagine them sticking around here that long and so close to the holidays...

  157. And here's a photo of the 12:13 Dream t-shirts at the merch. table at the Troubadour.

  158. Can someone explain to me why the shirts say "12:08 Dream"?

  159. Shawn: For December 2008, perhaps? :)

  161. i was kind of bummed by the Kimmel show. I stayed up for it last night and the performance seemed like it was lacking some energy, and robert didn't seem very happy. Then again, they have been on a performing trek doing shows about every night. They deserve a break,

  162. I don't mean to hijack the thread, but I wanted to ask you a favor Craig.

    Could you please post a reminder that the deadline for Nightmare teeshirt orders for holiday shipping is 6 pm Thursday, Dec. 18th? I will still have them after that, but that's the last day I will be able to ship them to have them there before xmas next week.

    I will try to have a review of th CD taping and Troubadour show out soon :D

  164. Thanks for the youtube link Arron even though the sound is a bit distorted on the video. The show is still not up on Jimmy's Site. Would love to see THG clip!

    And I agree with Figurehead in that Robert didn't seem to want to be there. He looked a bit annoyed but then he's most likely quite tired. They all look kind of tired but it was a busy weekend for the band performing five shows in a row and I’m sure some partying too??

    Wow what a weekend that was, hard to believe it’s over.

  165. Looked it up Craig and here are the facts.

    50°F for Leno
    48°F for Daly
    50°F for Secret Show
    42°F for those who camped out for KROQ
    46°F for those who camped out for Kimmel + RAIN

  166. Wow I thought So Calif was the land of warm weather & sunshine. That's a bit colder that I thought it would get out there. But at least there was no snow or freezing rain like there is on the East Coast. It's crazy weather we are having!

  169. Kel: You didn't miss much. They only aired about 30 seconds of Hungry Ghost. The full song is supposed to be up on the Kimmel website, but it hasn't been posted yet.

  170. fingers crossed, I will be able to check out the vids on the kimmel website. I went and had a scout there yesterday and a lot of stuff was NOT AVAILABLE to anyone outside of the USA! It's discrimination, I tells ya ;)

    ReplyDelete
  171. Jo! Thank you so much for the card! You are much too kind. I've never received a Christmas card from outside of the US, so this was very cool and very special. And I loved that stamp! Thank you again! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and Dave.

  172. Craig - You're welcome!

    Fortunately I still had your address written down - sadly, all addresses on my pc were lost in the Great Hard-Drive Crash of 2009. :(

    And for the record, there is no such thing as "too kind".

  173. Hello,

    Enjoy.
