  6. Yes, Craig, that was my "request" at the end of my interview. I tried to get something off 4:13 played, but they didn't have the new album at the studio!! :O So you'll hear me right before that.

  10. Hmm, I wonder if TMU even bothered sending them a copy of 4:13?

  11. This stations plays a good mix of music some alternative some techno. I just wished I spoke French to understand what the DJ is saying. (I believe that is what the DJ is speaking but I could be wrong.)

  19. Thanks craig, I figured he had it but I was just double-checking to be sure.

    Lots of work went into it by Rev & the peeps who submitted a page so it would be a shame if he didn't get it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That was awesome :). Well done REV! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. CK, how it happened is that one of the folks that put a page in is from Belgium and she gave them my contact info. So they got ahold of me and I did this interview at 10:30 this morning so they had time to edit it.

    ReplyDelete

    thanks, I left it recording at home and at work now so I can't listen.

    I stopped the recording and uploading now. The mp3 is 33 min long, go ahead and forward it to Rev's part. As soon as I'm able to hear it, I will edit it to only be Rev.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. If someone could use Audacity to clip the mp3 and repost it, I would love to hear it. I'm at work and can't do much. :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yo! you say skip to 20:41?

    Cool!

    someone tell me where it ends and I'll clip it from work to my home computer and not even need to hear it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Rev,
    me and Craig are trying to edit the mp3 so we can all have it. the archived link from what I am told is a stream.

    :D

  42. @Craig + COF,
    on a side note, one of my coworkers here at my college, a math instructor, came up to me and said "hey, i heard your band likes to play with no power."

    made my day. :D

    ReplyDelete
  43. Well done Rev! That was awesome!

    ReplyDelete

  48. You know, I just wanna throw this interview in the face of my co-workers and friends who think I am a total dork and nut case for liking the cure so much...they all know about my fan page and were teasing me about it....HA!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Rev: Really? Wow, that's just made my day!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is so cool, I hope we get an update from the Man himself about the book soon, something nice on the official site from him would be cool! and of course announcements about plans for this auspicious year of course.

    ReplyDelete
  51. WOW! Heron you gave an excellent interview. Such a great idea to give Robert a book from the fans, Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great Job Heron,

    ReplyDelete

  61. random question:

    did anyone get to hear "The Only One" remix by 65DaysofStatic? Not the "Exploding Head Syndrome" one, but the one that was supposed to get released on iTunes as a bonus track.

    ReplyDelete
  62. LOL.

    That's great Heron! All the info coming out about the show REALLY makes me wish I'd been there now... awesome for the people who got to be there.

    How many pages was the book btw??

    ReplyDelete
  63. Great job, Rev. AWESOME BLOSSOM!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi everyone, almost done with my work day so I can go home and relax and start working on uploading all the photos and videos from the show. This morning was a great surprise and listening to it again I think I sound more on top of things than I felt, LOL.

    I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to thank Vicky on air for giving them my contact info, and I'm really sorry I wasn't with it enough to plug CoF as the greatest Cure fan site in the world :D with the nicest Cure peeps around. I really appreciate everyone's kind comments, you all are so sweet. It's always a treat to meet CoF friends, what a blast it was to get to meet so many of you in Vegas!

    Helsabot, the book ended up with 53 pages, and as Sarab said, it's been confirmed that he got the book. I hope to be able to post so much more in the next few days! Cheers, Cure love and happy Robert day to everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I gotta say that's really cool you guys got the interviews in Belgium! Very, very cool!

    Heron-Thank you again for orchestrating this book. I am so very honored to be a part of it!!

    Thank you!

  71. Man, looking at it again, i wish i didn't write all that stuff on my painting....especially my info. It kind of looks tacky now that i see it in the book and finished.
    OH well, sorry for being tacky guys...

  73. Heron:

    I'm so happy that they will be able to read my letter, and see what artwork I had time to do for them. It means everything that they know what they have done for us, and that we truly love them.

    Thank You again for such a wonderful idea and all the work you put into it :)

    I was smiling all day today because it's Robert's birthday. I was even smiling when I was at work!

  74. @Aaron,
    i am 100%, downloaded at my college and their internet is fast! unfortunately I will have to redownload at home. this sounds good so far, a fan recording and not from the webcast. I hear the waves!

    ReplyDelete
  75. @Andy
    WOW, my net sucks to be fair, but still, i could cut it up tommorow if people are busy, but i will check how it sounds.

    ReplyDelete
  76. @Aaron,
    i don't work at all tomorrow, i will try to do it tonight. i'd be glad to.

    the only thing that bothers me is that by splitting the tracks i think I might be reencoding it again and worried about the loss.

    ReplyDelete
  77. @Aaron,
    unless! i convert the 1 files to WAV, then split the WAV into mp3? or is that still the same. darn.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Still the same as if i just cut it up as it is without losing anything it already has, im sure i could, im used to chopping video though! :P

    ReplyDelete
  85. Haha, believe me, I WAS UP AT 6AM trying to get it, but i couldnt even watch it due to the error people had :/

  91. Heron, that was AWESOME!!!!!!!! And you got to say "fuck" on the air. HAHA!!! Makes me wish I would have contributed something but oh well. Congrats! You are now part of Cure history!

  92. Anah:

    awhh thanks :) That makes me feel a little better.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Everyone, pull out your MySpace Secret Show files that crowbi_wan recorded at the show.

    now go to the end of Pictures of You. you notice that bit at the end of the song, once it's done, it sounds like part of I'm a Cult Hero.

    I always thought Simon was playing this at the end as a joke, but after paying close close attention at both the Vegas and Coachella shows, it seems to be a tape of some sort that they play after POY.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Hello everybody,

    I'm Vicky from Belgium or Trust... at the official page and at curefans.com.

    It's just wonderfull to read all these comments, it makes me really crying ... So sweet, so supporting Heron. Just Wonderfull.

    All of you are great.
    I'm a daily visitor of this site, I even followed every live report.

    I enjoyed so much the live reports from Coachella, I was so glad to make a page for The Anniversary Book. I've bin here so many times put didn't post many comments. I feld always as a stranger or something, and now the peeps are writing all of this, I was crying.

    All those comments 115 ones. I had less than 1O peeps who said something :(, but those who did, I really appreciate them :-)

    From now on, I will try not to forget my password and you have a poster extra :-)

    Greetings,
    Vicky

  96. oh forgot to say:

    I don't understand that the radiostation had no 4:13 album ??

    When it's came out, I sended an angry e-mail, that they talked days and days about the new album from Metallica and so, and didn't say a word about that from The Cure.

    So in the program, the same as that's where you could hear Heron, they played a few songs from the new album and spook about it ???

    I will send a mail what they did with this wonderful album ?!?

    Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Hey Vicky! That was very cool that you took the initiative to write to the radio about the book! And to write to them about 4:13, that's what Cure fans are all about! Supporting the music! You should join in the conversations here more often!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Very well done Heron!!

    Brought a tear to my eye listening to it. I always get made fun of at work too about The Cure, but I have listened to them now for over 23 years (wow - been that long!) and I am not stopping now. They are a huge part of me and my life and always will be.

    Thank you so much Heron for all your work on this book. You did an awesome job. I am so proud to have a page in the book. (My one is the painting of Robert's face with the green handprint over it - Steve and Deb, Kansas City at bottom) Thank you for all the great comments about it.

    Feels good to know that the band might be looking at it as I write this.

    I wish I could have met your all at Vegas and Coachella. I do post on here from time-to-time and read what's going on EVERY day.

    You guys are great.

    Steve.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Wow, how great was that!? Well done and well spoken indeed, Rev!

    Thanks Rev, Vicky, Andy and Craig for making it happen and allowing us to hear it... :)

  100. Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for your comment.

    And I will post more in the future :-)

    I love to be here !

    ReplyDelete
  101. Hi Vicky,
    Thanks so much for making the Studio Brussels interview happen and PLEASE don't be a stranger. The more posters the better in COF land.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Thanks again to everyone for your comments and support. When the project started, I really had no idea that it would blossom into what it became, and it ended up the way that it did precisely because all of you took the time to create something that came from your heart and share it with us. The book would not be what it is today without the dedication and support of everyone who sent a page in. I was blown away almost daily when these incredible works of art kept arriving in my mailbox. It was like having Christmas go on for weeks, in a way!

    Vicky, I think you are discovering what we have all found out, which is that CoF peeps are so nice and helpful and amazing. As Altr2elise said, the more the merrier! One of the best things about the CoF threads is that everyone is welcome to come and post, so please don't feel like a stranger. And all you lurkers out there, please feel welcome to join in the conversations!

    Regarding your question about the album, yes I did try to request a song from 4:13 Dream. At first they said OK and then as I spoke to Bram, they came back and said they do not have that album in the studio, and so to pick something else. I asked about the other albums and found out they had Wish for sure, so FTEOTDGS was my choice. Then they threw that question at me about why it would be perfect for his birthday! Haha!

    Steve and April, I understand about getting mocked for our Cure obsession at work, LOL. I have my little Cure shrine on my desk and get the raised eyebrow and the occasional comment about it too. But that will never diminish the love we have for the band and for our Cure peeps! :D I almost feel sad in a way for people who have supposedly grown up and have no passion for anything left in their lives.

    Long live CoF and long live The Cure!

    ReplyDelete
  103. It's funny because i've been working at the same place for almost 2 years now and they hardly really understand/know what kind of music i listen too. most of the people there are not really into music....kind of bland :(
    so in conversation with my boss the other day i had told her that i was up until 3:30 sunday night watching the cure at coachella and she said "wow I didn't realize how into this band you were" haha

    so today she came up to me and said "I looked up this band the cure you're really into, i think i need to start wearing my lipstick like that!" then she laughed and said "i had no idea you were into that stuff...."i had to laugh, (i'm thinking, what stuff??)

    i don't dress like that normally so i think she figured i'd look like that if i was into that..
    i'm pretty reserved or quiet or whatever so she was shocked that i liked "rock"

    i get that everywhere i work it seems
