  1. Very nicely done, Bernie!...as always!
  2. Thank you Billy. Strange though, as I live just a few minutes from where these items are shipped.
  3. Can someone tell me if the signed litho is being shipped separtely from other merch that was ordered in the same order? I only received the t-shirt and pin in my order yesterday, the litho was missing.
  4. I posted something on the forums for Super Deluxe and The Posies...
  5. My birthday is December 9th. I will never forget, waking up to the radio going off in the morning of my 14th birthday, it was tuned to WMMS and Jeff Kinzbach announced that Lennon had died. It was only a few years later that I TRULY discovered The Beatles, what they meant to pop culture and how great a man John Lennon really was. Rest In Peace.
  6. Nice! I was one of those subscribers who couldn't wait to get the next issue in the mail. Of course that was some time ago. In fact, I can't even remember the last time I even LOOKED at that rag. Kudos, Marvin!
  7. Truly one of the best shows I've ever attended and I've attended quite a few! Wally, and the rest of the band for that matter, were at the top of their game. I'm not so sure about gambling on the fact they'll play Chicago, didn't EC say something about a possible tour of Japan only? Hope I'm wrong...
  8. Wow, good stuff, thanks Marvin. I have to pretty much agree with everything he says. Especially when he writes "The Raspberries just might be the most unduly marginalized band in the history of rock and roll. And I say that with no ounce of hyperbole because that's what I've been feeling for the past week since I saw them live and really went back to their records in a serious way." He explained EXACTLY how I've been feeling since seeing them last week, I'm just not capable of articulating it that well.
  9. Gina, I just e-mailed you as well, thank you for offering, I hope you still have some left!
  10. Yeah, that's a great idea! That kind of stuff can be included in the "extras".
  11. Security was tight, both inside and out. Everyone gets "wanded" as you enter the concert hall.
  12. Mannoman, That's funny! It was chilly, but actually kind of balmy for Nov. 26th in these parts, I think it was around 50 degrees that evening. Anyway, the line was long and hopefully you all will not run into that problem. Depending on how close you want to stand to the stage or if you already have an assigned balcony seat, it might behoove you to wait a bit and arrive a little later. Remember they didn't even open the doors to the hall until about 8:15 last week. Let some of the other folks brave the elements, then walk right in! Sounds good in theory, but who knows what it'll be like downtown on NYE. It could be a nightmare with people everywhere or just the opposite, with people electing to stay home that evening. The Flats will be far more busier than the area where the HOB is. I would try to come prepared for anything, give yourself plenty of time and just be sure you're wearing something warm in the event you do have to wait outside. They do have a coat check, that way you won't have to wear your snowsuit to the show!
  13. Mannoman, I was downtown the night after the show as well, my girl and I went to the lighting of the square ceremony. I wanted to take a picture of the HOB marquee that read "Raspberries - SOLD OUT" and saw the same line you did, but it was actually for a band called Hoobastank which was playing after Les Paul. I KNOW Les Paul does not have THAT devout a following of teenagers! My only advice is, dress warm! Wish I could be there again, but my girl and I already had plans for NYE. Have fun everyone, can't wait to read the posts!
