  2. Damn, I really want Club America in Houston!!! I chose not to go to Austin due to what Cat is dealing with now, sitting in freaking TX heat at 1:00 in the afternoon, 8 hours before the show starts...... Well, I may miss out, but everyone there will be happy I did, as I would not be my usual jovial self after an order like they are experiencing...Hope they get some cool stuff!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Wow...according to Amazon, my Freakshow single shipped today!! Maybe Universal got it right this time...guess we'll find out Tues/Wed.

    Here's hoping Clockwise has an AMAZING time this evening.

  4. Craig - what email do I use to email you? I'm having 'issues' emailing you and now I am frustrated :) thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Same as always - chainofflowers@compuserve.com

    ReplyDelete
  6. Craig: You heard from Cat in a while? I hope she hasn't suffered heat stroke or been arrested for doing something brash to the PHTs! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  7. V - Just texted her to see how long the line is. Haven't heard back yet.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Craig: Wow, now my imagination is racing, imagining all of the scenarios that would keep her from being bored in line (and therefore immediately responding to your text). :) I hope Robert and Si-Si have whisked her backstage for a private Bobby Leg/PHT viewing! :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wyatt - I have baked in that Texas sun too many times, most notably for Houston 2000. Not fun at all.

    The best Texas show, weather wise, was the Dec. 1997 show at the Bronco Bowl. Cold and rainy all day.

    And it was at a freaking bowling alley/arcade! What could be better than playing Donkey Kong while waiting to go see The Cure? : )

    And to top it off, they played Torture, Cut and UNTITLED!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Craig and/or V, are you here now?

    ReplyDelete
  11. i wonder if cat has a camera phone...oh the possibilities!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hi Eric. I'm here off and on for now.

    ReplyDelete
  13. hey eric. what it is, my man?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Dayum... I don't envy Cat. I'll gladly drive 2 1/2 hours to Houston tomorrow to avoid heat exhaustion.

    ReplyDelete
  15. sorry guys, but i may be dumb but i feel out of the loop. What's PHT?

    ReplyDelete
  16. yer not dumb andy, and you prolly don't want to know...

    ReplyDelete
  17. andy, can you keep a secret on a public messageboard?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Eric: I'm like Craig - here off and on. What's up? :)

    Hi Sofia!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Andy: PHT = Penis Hugging Tights :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. V - I know, I know. My job to tell him. PHT = Penis Hugging Tights.

    ReplyDelete
  21. the raindogs tom waits list has a webpage for the raindogs yearbook.
    we should do that here for the frequenters.
    COF yearbook to put faces to the names. and do some "senior superlatives" and i know which superlative cat is getting!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Just heard from Cat again.
    Cat (3:30pm): "Line is almost a block long now. About 75 people. We saw pseudo Simon."

    ReplyDelete
  23. what in the world is "pseudo simon"? any news about his pseudo nether regions?!

    ReplyDelete
  24. v- i have an MSG ticket to give away. i thought you were thinking about going. do you want my ticket?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks, Craig! It's always better when you say it! :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Craig - I'm sorry I have tried and tried and keep getting a failure notice. Can you email me at valeriefromcapri@yahoo.com and then I'll email you back with the stupid email!!!! Grr....

    Thanks again, love you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sofia - Not sure, asking now. Maybe a Si look-a-like? Wonder if she jumped him? : )

    ReplyDelete
  28. craig, well! a picture would be nice! :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. Eric - If V doesn't want it, I might know someone who does.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Eric: Wow! :) I have joked about going, but I don't think I will be able to make it there. :( Unfortunately, I have other stuff going on in my "real life" this month that make it nearly impossible for me to go anywhere. Sigh. Anyway, thanks so much for thinking of me. :) :) :) Are you going to the show?

    ReplyDelete
  31. o hai...i might also have an msg ticket to give away. my brothers band plays that night.
    i keep telling him thats no good reason to miss a cure show but apparently he feels some crazy sense of responsibility for his bandmates and label. fft!
    ill keep everyone up to date on that.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I can just see it now:

    - Psuedo-Simon struts by.
    - Cat pounces.
    - "Wait, that's all you got? You can't be the real Simon!"

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Craig: I hope that other person who may want it is you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. yeah! i'm the guy who's scared of nyc, so i bought an extra ticket for a friend. but since i have no friend... i'm giving it away.

    ReplyDelete
  35. hmm..yeah, didn't really wanna know, but somehow i felt like i was out of The Cure loop. We're talking about Simon, right?

    ReplyDelete
  36. andy, we sure are! and how!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Andy: Yes, the PHTs belong to Simon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. i'm assuming annie has one, because she's talking like she's going. this is true, right?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Eric: I don't know about Annie, but I know April was looking for tix for one of the NYC shows. But I think she was planning to go to RCMH.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sofia - I don't think Cat is tech savvy enough to do pictures from her phone. : )

    I will delete this later so she doesn't see that. : )

    ReplyDelete
  41. Rrreowr! She totally shoulda brought me along as her personal photographer/geek.

    ReplyDelete
  42. craig, you know somebody who needs an MSC ticket?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Eric: That is too cool of you. Where are you traveling to NYC from again?

    ReplyDelete
  44. well cat is def braver then i am regarding the heat but i am now off the show myself, will have to brave only a few hours of it but living here gets u used to it a little and oh how i hope and hope that the rumors are true that special things will be happening tonite!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. craig, haha aww. kind of you. but i think she's already admitted that she's uh...
    well i'm surprised she learned how to text so quickly! go cat! next stop- peeping tom phone cam skillz!

    ReplyDelete
  46. and i cant wait to read all of the reports when i get home tonite.

    ReplyDelete
  47. From Cat about Pseudo Simon: "A dude who looks like Si. A roadie maybe."

    ReplyDelete
  48. Have fun, boopadoo!! Give Cat, Robert, Simon, and whoever else you run into a hug from us! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Craig - I hope you got it this time.


    I also LOVE the PHT, up close they will ROCK your sock OFF!!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. hey all, had a call from Mock Goth Gurl/Veronica from austin earlier. She is supposed to call me tonight if any unplayed song makes it onto the setlist tonight. She said that UTS in Dallas was truly glorious, youtube just doesn't do it justice. I'm PRAYING for it in ATL!!! She's gonna keep her eyes open for Cat.

    ReplyDelete
  51. albany ny. no-one ever comes here, but i can travel to lots of places from here in a few hours, which makes it pretty cool (i.e. boston, montreal, nyc, even philly isn't horrible). i don't like boston, but the only city i'm scared of is nyc. it's too fragile.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Cat also confirms she can't take photos with her phone.

    Whether that's due to limitations of the phone or of Cat remains unclear. : )

    ReplyDelete
  53. boopadoo, have an awesome show! sending you good setlist vibes

    ReplyDelete
  54. Craig: Cat clearly needs to be upgraded to Cat 2.0!

    ReplyDelete
  55. good god I hope nobody has a heat stroke baking at the gate this afternoon

    ReplyDelete
  56. V - YOU tell her that. : )

    ReplyDelete
  57. thanks all !!!!!time to go sweat to death byeee

    ReplyDelete
  58. these venues should make special considerations for the pasty cure fan.
    those spray misters or something for chrissakes....

    ReplyDelete
  59. i had to break into my "day job" office to get online today and i'm gonna have to leave soonish. i'm hoping to find a good home for my ticket in the next day or so, and it would be awesome if it were a COF regular. i'm hoping you all can help me out.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This comment has been deleted by the author.

    :D

    ReplyDelete
  61. Eric - I might. Olivier and Bill are flying in from Paris and Olivier still needs an MSG ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Eric: That is so cool of you. I think you will find a taker here who will give it a good home.

    Right, Craig? :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. V - you're going to kill me, but I've turned down 3 NYC offers in the last few days. : )

    ReplyDelete
  64. craig, does your email work now? i sent you a message before montreal, but you never seem to have gotten it. can i send you a test message? if so, i can get you the info you need to hook me up with olivier or whomever. however, i do want to make sure annie is hooked up, because she seems to be enough of a regular to deserve it, and she was the first one to ask me about it when i mentioned this possibility last week.

    ReplyDelete
  65. craig...but we're getting UTS. :c

    ReplyDelete
  66. Eric - yes, try e-mailing again. Understand about Annie. Just let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Craig: Naw, I won't kill you. I know that you'd go if it was the right thing to do, but since you know that The Cure is playing a secret show in New Orleans, there's no need for to go all the way to NYC to see them. ;)

    Anyway, I'm just here to provide some playful encouragement is all. :) I really should be taking my own advice here, too, and saying "fuck real life" and just going! But since I already traveled really far to see them once this year...kinda harder to justify. But next year, the slate is clean... :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. since they seem to love new orleans...fascination street and all they really should make a visit.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Eric - Just so you know, Olivier is the one who traveled to nearly every show on the European tour and did the live setlist updates. He's the one responsible for getting me to start live updates.
    And he will do live reports from both shows.

    ReplyDelete
  70. V - exactly...next year. ; )

    Sofia - uh, yeah. WE know that. Apparently RS has forgotten. : )

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'd love the cure back in NOLA, that's a 2 hour drive for me as opposed to this 6 hour drive to ATL

    ReplyDelete
  72. craig, i just sent the email. let me know if you get it.

    ReplyDelete
  73. i have one last question before i go home. if i show up in front of RCMH with like $200.00 on the afternoon/night of the concert there, what do you think the odds are that i could get in?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Eric:
    I'll take that MSG ticket if you're
    trying to get rid of it, I just made the decision to fly down fron Toronto to see the 2 NYC shows.
    First time posting on these blogs though i read them every concert.
    Craig knows me from the tattoo section on COF (Steve) and i sent him stuff from Montreal and Toronto shows.
    Cheers, Steve

    ReplyDelete
  75. Steve - it's in Craig's hands now. i think he's got a taker, but if that doesn't work out, he'll let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  76. rain has stopped here in FL.

    i think i will Twitter from Tampa show :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. well peeps, i'm outta here. i hope you all have a FANTASTIC evening, with a great setlist, PHT reports galore for all the COF kittens, and all sorts of other good stuff. yes, i will be feeling jealous of you all tonight. lots of love, and see you soon!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Cat (5:01pm): "Probably 200 or so in line now. No PHT or Psuedo Si."

    ReplyDelete
  79. Bye Eric. I'll let you know. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Cat (5:31pm): "Cure are here now."

    ReplyDelete
  81. Craig: Any non-pseudo-Simon sightings yet? :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. V - Don't know. Probably drooling instead of typing. Girl has her priorities all screwed up. : )

    Hoping she hears the sound check.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Just got out of the pool at holiday inn. You people are crazy for standing in line all day!! I have an extra Austin ticket I'm trying to sell. Anybody interested? I am about to go down there and try to sell it. Let me know. gorev2@cox.net

    ReplyDelete
  84. Cat (5:46pm): "Someone said they already did sound check last night. Holy Hour, Club America, Drowning Man, Other Voices...hellz yea."

    Hmm, same songs rehearsed at Dallas sound check. I think something is up. : )

    ReplyDelete
  85. Doesn't Cat hate "Club America"?

    ReplyDelete
  86. V - I can't remember. But we know she's been begging for Holy Hour. : )

    ReplyDelete
  87. I think she was a club america fan...

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hey Jewella.

    The Mystery of the Cat and the Club.

    Sounds like a case for Detective V. : )

    ReplyDelete
  89. It's hard to keep track of which ones she loves and hates, but yes, I do remember her wanting "Holy Hour." I wish we were there with her - would be so much fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Cat (6:06pm): "400 or more now in line. I'm hot and bored. Open the damn doors."

    ReplyDelete
  91. 100! I'm here - in and out for the evening since I'm at the inlaws for a birthday party. I can't wait, the setlist should be something! Predictions for openings? OOTW!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Craig: Yes, indeed! *pulls out her magnifying glass* I'll see what I can dig up! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Cat (6:08pm): "Lots of line cutting bastards."

    ReplyDelete
  94. Wow, I'm good - mystery solved! ;)

    Clockwise Cat said...

    I spy Club America!

    *drools all over self forming big puddles of sticky saliva*
    May 22, 2008 4:39 PM

    ReplyDelete
  95. Ohhh, line cutting is soo wrong. Grr. Cat needs to get her claws ready!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Hey Rev. I guess I'll call you that too now, since everyone else does. : )

    ReplyDelete
  97. Excellent job, Detective V.
    Always knew there was something wrong with Cat. : )

    ReplyDelete
  98. Rev: I'm with ya on OOTW. :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. she's gonna choke those line cutting bastards I know it !!! I would ...

    ReplyDelete
  100. Of course they will start with OOTW and close the set with Bloodflowers.
    And play the full Faith encore.
    Robert is a bastard. : )

    Unless he thinks I'm there and is trying to impress me. : )

    ReplyDelete
  101. Jewella - I told her to kick them. Figured I didn't need to specify what area to kick them in. She's Cat, she already knows. : )

    ReplyDelete
  102. Craig, well Rev is shorter to type LOL

    ReplyDelete
  103. I think the first 3 songs will be "Out of this World", "Want", and "Club America." :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Did Cat bring a sign that says, "COF Kittens ♥ Simon's PHTs"?

    ReplyDelete
  105. i'd judo kick those sumbitches in the teeth if they tried cutting in front of me. and i know cat will do the same! go on, gurl!

    ReplyDelete
  106. V - I think Cat's head would explode. : )

    ReplyDelete
  107. Craig: If that would make her head explode, can you imagine what would happen if they actually did open with "Heroin Face"?? ;)

    If something like that happened, we would know that Robert reads every comment on this site. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  108. Craig: I'm sure that she has told everyone in line about PHTs - it's only a matter of time before mention of them appears on a sign at some show. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  109. sofia, I'm totally taking you with me next time I go to a GA Cure show ;)

    ReplyDelete
  110. rev, i've turned into the quintessential take no bullshit new yorker (only with a valley girl accent). everyday is a war on the subways. i'd like to be pushover because i think it's sort of endearing but if i got there at 5am and someone who got there at noon tried to cut? we'd have to dance. end of story.

    sofia security: i may be short, but i'm effective! i'm going to print up some business cards! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  111. I have just touched myself!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. oh full moon...if your name wasnt there i would know it was you from your comment *eyelash flutter*

    ReplyDelete
  113. Jennifer (6:34pm): "Line is now wrapped all the way around the parking garage . Lots of die-hards, old Cure shirts and plenty of COF fans."

    ReplyDelete
  114. V - Cat answers your sign question, as only Cat could:

    " No I suck. COF pussies rule."

    ReplyDelete
  115. Craig: Typical Cat response, indeed! Yay for Clockwise Cat, Austin Attendee #35!

    ReplyDelete
  116. So what does PHT stand for keep reading it, but don't know what it is?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Good morning, all!!!
    I can't believe it is so hot in Austin... here it is stormy, perfect weather for a Cure concert!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Ryan - Penis Hugging Tights.
    In regards to Simon. Are you sorry you asked or what? : )

    ReplyDelete
  119. Jennifer (7:04pm): "Doors open...security taking small groups in at a time."

    ReplyDelete
  120. Craig, you'll have to set up a faq page you can direct people to so you can send them the link instead of having to type the explanation all the time :D

    ReplyDelete
  121. Rev - but V gets such delight by making ME say it. : )

    ReplyDelete
  122. I have to say the "soaring vocals" version of UTS is growing on me more with every listen.

    ReplyDelete
  123. gotta go out for a while be back later..

    ReplyDelete
  124. Cat is front and center, 2nd row!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Elise - Yes! And V is already on board with it. : )

    ReplyDelete
  126. Craig - there is still part of me that loves the 'sore throat' version, but I'm starting to see the appeal of the 'soaring vocals'

    ReplyDelete
  127. Jennifer (7:10pm): "We are in...tiny, tiny, tiny venue. Should be a great show. Gaggle of girls in front of us and are annoying."

    I hope she isn't talking about Cat. : )

    ReplyDelete
  128. Hi, everybody!

    Just wanted to stop by and say Hello. Sounds like Cat has an exciting night ahead of her - how wonderful!

    I won't be staying but wanted to send my best to all.

    Have a great night!

    ReplyDelete
  129. Elise - I think we can all agree that there are no bad versions of UTS. : )

    ReplyDelete
  130. Craig - OK - you've finally got me convinced ;)

    ReplyDelete
  131. Rev: It's true - I make Craig say it every time someone asks! Do you really want to take that perverse enjoyment away from me by having Craig put up a FAQ?!? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  132. Heya, Craig... I may linger quietly for a *few* minutes. it's hard to stay away! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  133. Yes. I am very sorry I asked. And who started that sighting practice? And by the way I am a fellow new orleanian. You were joking about the secret show at the republic right. Wishful thinking? I am on show 10 of 11 of this tour and would be very happy to go to N.O. before going back to New Mexico where I've been for the most part since Katrina. I'm certain you were kidding. OK about to finish getting my drink on before I get my fungus on and head down to the venue.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Yay for Cat getting 2nd row center! I wonder what antics she'll pull to get Bobby and Si-Si's attention! :o

    ReplyDelete
  135. Good morning, V. Sorry I don't know your pen pal - surprisingly! But, wouldn't it have been freaky if I did!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Wow it must have been pure hell for cat to wait all day in that heat but 2nd row center, it's worth it. Hope it's a super special show. Holy Hour would be amazing if they play it tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  137. I like the "soaring vocals" in UTS, and I'm proud to admit it! :D

    (Sorry, getting caught up. :) )

    ReplyDelete
  138. 'Morning, Elise. I didn't think you'd know her, but I figured it was worth a try, eh? :) The world is sometimes smaller than you expect it to be!

    ReplyDelete
  139. v - and it gets smaller everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Hey guys, just thought I'll pop in and say hi because I'm not going to be here for the set list updates tonight (have to get up early in the morning).

    Anyway looking foward to reading all about the show tomorrow and I hope our girls on the front line have fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Ryan - Yes, just wishing.
    Paul K started the whole PHT, thought Cat came up with the name, I think. Detective V? Was it Cat?

    ReplyDelete
  142. i'm SO HAPPY she got second row! we'll get more details than we ever bargained for!

    ReplyDelete
  143. Hi Andrew!

    Hey V - you're a Detective as well as a doctor now????

    ReplyDelete
  144. Craig: I don't have the hard evidence at hand, but yes, I'm quite certain that the term "PHT" originated in the mind of Ms. Clockwise Cat. :)

    ReplyDelete
  145. Elise: Yes, ma'am. I'm a regular jill of all trades!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Hi Andrew! Thanks for stopping in to say hi. :)

    ReplyDelete
  147. Sofia - If I have to type up any of the things I imagine Cat sending to me...well, you guys just better appreciate it. : )

    ReplyDelete
  148. Oh Craiiiiiig. You know we will! :)

    ReplyDelete
  149. Craig - you know the Kittens love ya for everything you do for us!!!

    ReplyDelete
  150. And we're off!
    "hard evidence at hand". Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Craig: I was wondering if anyone would catch that. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  152. craig, don't we make it worth your while ;)

    ReplyDelete
  153. Cat would like you all to know that she has removed her bra.

    I have nothing to say about this. : )

    ReplyDelete
  154. oh jesus! it's like a tom jones concert!

    ReplyDelete
  155. Craig: Oh, and this thread contains the originating usage of PHT, I believe.

    You knew I wasn't going to leave you hanging on that one, right? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  156. "cat has removed her bra" and the band haven't even taken to the stage yet! It's gonna be a good night. I am sooo glad I am not at work for this discussion!

    ReplyDelete
  157. Will she throw it at Simon? O.o

    ReplyDelete
  158. Cat's battery is low. Going to use another phone.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Craig - where did she put it? In her pocket? :)

    ReplyDelete
  160. Detective v - that's hilarious - especially your comment of "I will say no more on the subject"!!!!! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  161. Craig - do you need to send a text to that phone so she can text you back?

    ReplyDelete
  162. Elise: LOL - famous last words!!! >:)

    ReplyDelete
  163. Ok, have a great night, everybody! I'm out.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Shit after waiting in that heat all day, I'd chuck the bra too! If ya got big boobs you'll know what I mean! LOL!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  165. Elise - yes, I sent her a text to the new number. haven't heard back yet.

    ReplyDelete
  166. My psychic powers have been disturbingly crappy of late, but I am gonna call UTS to start - Just for Cat

    ReplyDelete
  167. If Cat throws it to them, I quit. : )

    And I have no idea where she has put the bra. A gentleman never asks those sort of questions. : )

    ReplyDelete
  168. Craig - that's hilarious, I was just kidding ;)

    ReplyDelete
  169. OMG I have the giggles now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  170. C'mon - I know you are secretly hoping that she does throw it!

    ReplyDelete
  171. Craig: Honestly, I'm more worried about her flashing them than throwing undergarments onstage.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Im going to predict a similar set list as the shrine show with a couple surprises thrown in, and a Faith encore...

    ReplyDelete
  173. Hey v - now that's some good thinking, if she flashes she will probably get some excellent PHT 'action'

    ReplyDelete
  174. Girls Gone Wild: 4Tour Edition... featuring Cat : )

    ReplyDelete
