  3. Anyone know if someones gonna be taping the webcast for youtube or for download?? It's a school night for me and there's no way possible for me to be able to stay up that late. :(

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  6. damn it, its SCHOOL NIGHT. itll end at what midnight?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  9. woah, woah, woah there Aaron. I'm gonna try staying up for it :P. Sod sleep.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Could someone post the wave files if they record this? KROQ usually is a rare opportunity to get some great quality recordings. I know many Radiohead fans are glad they've been recorded in the past.

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  11. Aaron: Wellll, I am going down the uni. Not for lectures though. :P

    ReplyDelete
  12. Anah: I will need an all-day espresso drip too, and I'm 2 hours behind you! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. getting ready to go!!!! will txt u guys @ the show!!!!
    love steph posting on m's computer

    ReplyDelete
  14. if someone would record it, I'm assuming they'd just record the Cure's performance. I don't really care about the other bands, only RSX and crew ;P

    ReplyDelete
  15. DOH!!!! It is a work day here, so it is unlikely that I will be able to spend much time in COF land today :(

    I hope ya'll have a great time.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm not going to be here either. Damn you timezones!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. somone PLEEAAZE record it, we will love you forever and ever!

    does anyone know what program would do the job?

    ReplyDelete
  18. man, that l.a. weekly review made me want to cry, kids. CRY.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sofia - I hear you about the emotion of the article, but how nice is it for a review to actually be done by a fan!!! Someone that gets us!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. At least we know the boys are usually on time so....does anyone know how long their set will be?

    Smooches,
    Pussycat

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pussycat: Look at the photo I posted on the front page. Cure are scheduled for 75 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Dang, I am sleepy from yesterday Andrew keep me up last night nervously watching to see if smoke was gonna come out his pants. How the heck am I going to stay up tonight for fook's sake??

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm sick so I've slept most of the day on nyquil...should have the stamina for the late night tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  24. if i can find more pain killers, i'll be with you guys tonight for the show.

    right now i'm doing some laundry (sock), and designing the Curemas Mini Tour Chat Log T-Shirt, based on Sofia's awesome emoticons.

    ReplyDelete
  25. and drinking shit loads of Die Coke. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. im tired too and its school tommorow, and im on the west coast too! i dont think i can stay for this one ugh

    MORRIS STAY, here are some painkilers, NOW STAY

    ReplyDelete
  27. ewwww i hate diet coke

    *watching webcast*

    ReplyDelete
  28. geez I hope I don't have to deal with all this buffering during the cure set

    ReplyDelete
  29. vampire weekend on - really good quality - video and audio.

    pity this isnt getting recorded!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. ugg I'm debating on whether or not to watch what's going on of the webcast for the crappy mainstream bands. oh well, nothing better to do until bed, since I won't be staying up for the Cure portion of the webcast :( Since the Cure are playing last, I wonder if the people who have been there since earlier today are going to stay if the act they came for played earlier...?

    It will be enough of a feat to stay awake for kimmel, and the dreaded Daly show which is like 1 am or later. For the Leno show, I found myself falling asleep during the commercials, but luckily I realized what I was doing. I had to sneak to stay awake and pretend to be asleep when my mom came in, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  31. is this being aired somewhere??

    ReplyDelete
  32. Carlos: Yes. On the KROQ website.

    ReplyDelete
  33. i see, but i can't find where exactly.. hmmm..

    ReplyDelete
  34. Right where it says Live Webcast Watch Now.

    ReplyDelete
  35. please forgive my stupidity, i seeit now, big red letterS that read "WATCH NOW"

    ReplyDelete
  36. Haha...sometime the most obvious things are the hardest to see. : )

    ReplyDelete
  37. LMAO, glad to know I am not the only one that does stuff like that.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Apparently Snow Patrol are not fans of The Cure. Fail.

    ReplyDelete
  39. did they say something bad about the cure?!?! *gets pitchfork and torch*

    ReplyDelete
  40. Unless he was referring to the secret guest being Robert. But that makes no sense. Robert Santa Smith? WTF?

    ReplyDelete
  41. No but the lead singer guy was all "Vampire Weekend were f*cking spectacular... and is everyone excited for Death Cab for Cutie? And the Killers, my god!" And totes didn't say anything about The Cure. If he was looking for a rise out of the crowd, he could have at least mentioned the headliner.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh no! End of the world! Come on guys. He didn't mention half of the bands on the bill.

    ReplyDelete
  43. thats pretty dumb, at least he should acknowledge the legends!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Scott Weiland covering The Smiths!

    ReplyDelete
  45. dang it, more than three hours to go..

    ReplyDelete
  46. well I've got to trail off to bed, so goodnight COF folks, I'll check in tomorrow after I get home from school to see how it went!! I'm excited for tommorrow night's kimmel broadcast!

    ReplyDelete
  47. bye figurehead!! have a good sleep!

    since when did scott wear cowboy hats?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Is Scott almost done with his set? This is painful to the ears!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm not really enjoying Scott's effort.

    ReplyDelete
  50. But that cover of Reel Around The Fountain was, um, interesting.

    I'm trying to be nice. : )

    ReplyDelete
  51. this stupid thing keeps buffering. i want cure already. =/

    ReplyDelete
  52. Very diplomatic of you Craig....I love that song but not Scott's version.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Would it be mean to say I would rather listen to William Hung sing "She bangs"?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Would it be mean to say my dog sings better?

    ReplyDelete
  55. *waves excitedly to rose*

    pussycat have i seen you on ccc or CF?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Rosepetals I just fell off my chair! LLLOOOLLLL!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Maybe it would sound better if I did heroin.

    ReplyDelete
  58. how the heck did he get a slot on kroq?

    ReplyDelete
  59. hey, it must wound worse at the show where its full blast

    ReplyDelete
  60. Looks like they are running over time.

    ReplyDelete
  61. It's Over! Thank the gods that Robert doesn't believe in!

    ReplyDelete
  62. *sound

    ReplyDelete
  63. dj scribbles: CCC

    yay the bad man has gone away!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Is Robert going to be all polite like the British are and say, "Scott that was just brill!"

    Hi D.J. if you get good grades I am going to buy you Scott Weiland's new album.

    ReplyDelete
  65. rose, for christmas???

    ReplyDelete
  74. dj scribbles:

    at the bottom of the web page is gives you an option to watch it in windows media player. my default on my computer is winamp so that is what i came up in.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Can't watch the webcast - stupid work firewalls!!!

    I'm enjoying my lunchbreak, so can chat for a little while.

    Can you believe I have a meeting for an hour, right when the Cure are scheduled to go on! YOU BASTARDS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. i dont have winamp, i've always thought of it as useless if you have itunes and windows media player as default, but what do you know eeh? oh oh i just realized that i can watch it with windows media player! will it be any better?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Carlos - what would be perfect is for Interpol to appear right before the Cure, and that they play Our Love To Admire in its entirety.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hello, everyone. I am going to attempt to stay up and watch the cure when they come on. So you lot can keep me amuzed :).
    What does everyone here think of Franz Ferdinand?

    ReplyDelete
  79. carlos:

    as i said no buffering problems so far so...i'll keep my fingers crossed for you! :)

    ReplyDelete

  83. i'll give it a try:) thanks Pussy

    ReplyDelete
  84. It's 10:50 now on the East Coast & I'm nodding off watching Franz's performance and they are one of my favorite bands. It going to be a long night before The Cure come on. Most likely I'll be when they come on. I need some NoDoze!

    ReplyDelete
  85. They sound good compared to what they followed! I don't think I would buy the cd tho.

    ReplyDelete
  86. i just realized how weird(?) that sounds when you read it, sorry.

  88. Beau I love Franz. They sound really good tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  89. DJ: :D hello, how are you? Do you have any snow? :)

    I'm glad you like Franz, they remind me of the clash and the cure mixed with another late 70s era band. :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Carlos: It can hold 6,185 people and it's sold out, but no idea how many are actually there.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  103. Cure Kitty - I am ok thanks :). Bit tired, not sure if I can make it until the cure but i'll try. I reckon I can make it until about 6am UK time which is about 2 hours away. What time is it now in LA, does anyone know?

    But anyways, other than being tired I am pretty good thanks :).

    ReplyDelete
  111. Color me confused but I thought Paramore was playing next....

    ReplyDelete
  112. kanye west has just joined Jayz in the "prestigious" list of rappers who've opened for the cure :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. jay z opened for the cure?? :S holy mother of god!

    ReplyDelete
  114. PCat: If you look at the updated schedule I posted a photo of, this time slot was listed as Kevin & Bean.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Please can someone tell me why Kanye West is not stage now????? WTF!!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. uh, im kinda not there yet.

    busy here in the hotel with ChrisP and Sarab543.

    We'll be leaving soon, i'm setting up to record The Cure's webcast, 10:20pm to 12:30am is the scheduler I set just in case they start sooner and of course play later, AS THEY SHOULD.

    Leaving soon. Have fun guys tonight in the chat.

    :)

    also to all those having trouble with that Microsoft Silverlight media player that KROQ is using to webcast, there are WMP mirrors on the bottom.

    i am recording the stream from the HI quality one.

    ReplyDelete
  117. This is not the surprise act I was told would be playing. : (

    ReplyDelete
  118. Hi DeeJie, Rose and CK - sorry I took so long to respond. Had to relay some of the gossip from the Christmas party to one of the girls at work!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. well hey this is better than weiland

    *pictures kanye backstage with robert*

    ReplyDelete
  120. This asshole better not to glasto this year like the rumours have been impling.

    Then again I bet Kanye is Roberts best tea buddy. You can just imagine them sharing a cup of english tea while Kanye talks over the rights of lovecats and turning it it in to a song about bangin' chicks yo.

    ReplyDelete
  121. uuuuggghhhh!

    ReplyDelete
  126. what's up with Kayne West being on the stage?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Helm: One of the surprise guests that haven't been announced.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Hello elise!

    Hugs to you! How are you, it's been a while since I last saw you on here while I was on. How are you? Do you still go on chat at night around 8ish? I haven't seen you for a while.

    Ah X-mas party gossip, I love it! I've got to put together & get the food for my company party this week!

    ReplyDelete
  129. DJ - Sara doesn't have your number. give me a ring at 562-712-6841 to tell me your number or something.

  133. Andy: And tell Sara I don't need setlist updates tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I just want to say in advance Thanks for Andy for recording The Cure portion on the show. I'm not too sure I'll be able to stay up that late! But I'm going to try!

    ReplyDelete
  135. i know about them all and i love them all, by the way you missed good old barry. but now all i see and hear from black people is rap and hip hop and well R&B which is not even close to what real blues is.

    ReplyDelete
  136. andy - left you a voicemail.

    nice ringback tone :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. Oh I wish I was there tonight! Have fun Cure Peeps who are lucky to be there!

    ReplyDelete
  138. CK - our time zones have changed - I still go on to chat at about 8pm, but that is about 6am your time now :(

    Yes, nothing like office gossip to get the place humming on a Monday morning!
    Girls kissing girls - CHECK
    Boys kissing boys - CHECK
    Alcohol fuelled injuries - CHECK

    It's ALLLLL good!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  153. Not a great start for Paramore, imo.

    ReplyDelete
  154. yees!! who's next?? please tell me not another rapper! :O the mode and the cure in one bill, that sounds amazing,hope it becomes more than just a rumor

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  156. elise you cant leave us when the cure starts :(

    ReplyDelete
  157. DJ - sadly, work will have to come first today. Believe me, it pains me a lot more than it pains you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  158. getting a little tired of the awfulness....

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  165. I used to (back in the 4Tour days) live a couple of blocks away from the high school Matt Stone went to. :)

    Don't know why I felt the need to share that fact, but oh well!

    ReplyDelete
  166. Does any sense a bit of "want" at the begining of this song?
    That guitar riff anyways..

    ReplyDelete
  167. I'm not sure what "COF people" are, but yes, there are plenty. Stephanie is in the front row. As you can see in her photo.

    ReplyDelete
  168. very cool trivia V :)


    her voice sounds better in this song i think, or maybe thats just because this crap keeps on rebuffing in winamp AND windows media. screw this connection!

    ReplyDelete
