  1. Heading out in about an hour to drive there from Austin. Volunteering for Music For Relief, so stop by the booth and say hi!
  2. Oh yeah, I meant to say, about Robot Boy being played live... I feel like everyone forgot the reason they gave for not playing it, which was that it has something like 15 vocal layers, and that's just not doable live. I don't think they're ever going to play it, or at least not for a very very long time, and only if they give in to sampling the layers, and I feel like that's something they really don't want to do. It wouldn't really come out right. Also, I got ahold of some new/old speakers today (they have to be connected w/copper wire, that's how old they are, but they still sound amazing). First thing I did when got them all connected was put ATS on to test them out. I knew that was the right album to test them out to. After re-listening to the album in a completely new format, it is more amazing than ever. And it reminded me of when I made my mom listen to ATS in full with me right after I got it. When it ended, she basically told me that all the people who dismissed the band with the style change were out of their minds.
  3. ...I think you just summed up why a lot of people don't like ATS, maybe it just comes down to that they simply don't get it. It went over their heads. People don't like things that confuse them. They also don't like change. I'm not even gonna TOUCH the "sell-out" thing. That's just pure bull and everyone who knows what the term means knows that, and everyone else is never going to listen. That outta the way, my opinion of ATS actually hasn't changed much in the past year. It tied (w/Reanimation) for my favorite album and stayed there. Actually, what it did was change my perception of MTM. MTM went on a bit of a roller coaster ride for me. At first I didn't care for it, then it quickly grew on me, then it faded, then ATS came out and shoved MTM to the back. I think MTM pales in comparison to ATS. Not to be taken that I don't like MTM, I just don't listen to it as often. For me it's now: ATS=Reanimation>HT>Meteora=MTM. My favs from ATS are probably Iridescent and Wretches & Kings. I gotta say, this was a fun thread to read.
  4. Here: http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/bac...ticket-lottery/ Basically, all you can do is show up early that morning and hope for the best. Good luck.
  5. Heh, "their hostile, angst-ridden sound" made me laugh.
  6. Heh, funny how you don't get the "ok" to tell us about it until after somewhere else announces it and we figure it out for ourselves. (*Not a complaint, just an observation.)
  7. Wow. That's cool. Anyway, sadly I've never seen them live, but my favorite moment has to be the performance of High Voltage Live At Docklands Arena, London in 2001. The song itself from that performance is my all-time favorite song ever, and the video is simply captivating.
  8. Heh, I like how we're all following him now, but he hasn't said anything yet. But, yes, in the future I expect it will provide great entertainment.
  9. Heh, ok, that was cool. I remember the stadium more as where the Cowboys played. Saw a game there once, from the endzone, with a big group of family. Think I also went there a couple times via marching band. Kinda sad to see it go, knowing I'll never get to see another Cowboys game live again. If LP does play the new stadium, the ticket prices better not be as insane as they are for Cowboys games now (I know they won't be, it's just a joke, that would be ridiculous). Unless you settle for the crappiest seats available, you have to pay thousands of dollars just for the option to purchase actual tickets, the crappiest of which are almost $600. And don't even try for seats on the 50.
  10. Ooh, cool. Seeing as I like both JK and free stuff, I shall post.
  11. Heh! That's so what I'm going to start calling them.
  12. That was the very first thing I noticed. Basically they chopped up and flipped a guitar track. I'm guessing they did something similar here.
  13. Yeah, Astat has a way of doing that. If that's not confirmation, I don't know what is. Now I'm excited!
  14. Hmm, Grand Prairie is in the Dallas area, right? I miiiiight go, depends if I feel like it's worth the 4 hour drive.
  15. That's awesome, congrats guys! I know y'all put a lot of hard work into the site, its success is well deserved.
