The highly anticipated new incarnation of the Name Change Thread is upon us.

Just so you all know, my username used to be 'Drew,' 'the blue o,' 'the blue D,' and various other names, but I changed it to my real name 'Shade' cuz I don't like 'yellow snow' anymore.

Just letting you all know so you don't wonder who the heck Sasquatch is and why he's giving the press releases all of a sudden.  :naughty:

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

You have to go through an initiation process to post in here.  It involves flogging.   :-/:whip:

Not really.  Anyone can post anything in here.  The more random and confusing, the better.

Can I kick off this one with a name change? Because I really don't ponder my fate very much. Really. I think I had a legit reason to not change my name again (or not to change it to "Christina") but I can't remember what that reason was, so screw it.

Place your bets on how long it'll be before I change my name back :P

Post by DWG on Nov 8th, 2009, 6:18pm
Hmm..."Christina". I like it. It has a nice ring to it. (Of course if I didn't like it you probably would have never had that name; maybe you'd have been called "PonderingMyFate" or something.)

I reckon I'm caught in the vortex of "the Reckoning".   :P

So, what should I change my name to? I never did really like Dances with Goo, so I shortened it to DWG, but that kind of confuses me with my real initials.

Have at it.

Hmm, interesting. Did he ever do much solo stuff other than I'm Still Here and whatnot though? (I'm so out of the loop. :-[) I assume he'd play Goo songs regardless.

John said he was planning to do a very small solo tour.  That is all that was said.  Nothing about times, dates, locations, content.  He made it sound as if it was something he just wanted to do, not promo for the new album.

I personally am not holding my breath because I do not think it will ever ever ever happen.

Haha, it's okay, I'm pretty much in the same boat. I got a couple things for one friend the other day but that's it. Haven't had the time! I also just spent an hour making cards for people I know on the internet but none for people I actually know... whoops.  :-[

Nicole, would you say Avatar is worth seeing in theaters? I just saw Brothers...good movie, if you don't expect an ending or any real conclusion.


Yeah it is definitely worth it. The 3D makes the movie seems much more realistic and less like a cartoon. James Cameron didn't overdo the cheesy 3D things being thrown at you, its much more subtle. I didn't see it at IMAX but I'm sure that's much better than the regular 3D.

Yeah I saw it in 3D. It isn't intense like 3D rides, the 3D makes the CGI scenes look more realistic like you're part of the scene.
The 3D glasses did create pressure points on the side of my head and give me a headache after like 2.5 hours.  :P

I think those song titles are realistic as believing John is going on a solo tour...

But in case they really are titles, I take issue with 'Buffalo International Airport' for two reasons.
1.  It's dumb
2.  It's actually the Buffalo Niagara International Airport

Reminds me of the time that someone posted on wikipedia that "nickelcity" would be the title of the new album. :P

The edit has been made by a person with a french IP address, with no other edits on wikipedia articles. I reverted the change and left a vandalism warning on his talk page.

I also removed Real from the list, because that's only speculated on the forums, but no official confirmation yet.

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning

No.  In their case, WB is supplying the locusts and trumpets, but will recoup the costs from the band.  In your case, I am buying them on eBay.

Also, make your name as long as you want.  My wide screen does not care.  But if Shannon wants to ban you, I will support her decision.  :D

It is a picture of Alyssa Milano :) It's from the first season of Charmed about 12 years ago or something like that. That seems so long ago. It is my absolute favorite show, Shannen Doherty was also in it, and Holly Marie Combs.

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by Shannon on Mar 16th, 2010, 1:37am
This is how old I am .... when I was a child they stopped making red m&m's for quite awhile thinking the red die caused cancer. Eventually, it was deemed safe and the red ones were added again. Anyone else remember the red m&m ban?

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by ___ on Mar 16th, 2010, 5:59pm
I remember voting in elementary school as well..

But the real question is WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PURPLE M&MS?  Shortly after the blue ones were added, they ran another contest between purple, pink and aqua.  Purple won.  I don't think they were ever actually made though.

Also, I cannot randomly eat M&Ms.  I need to separate them by color.  Reds get eaten first because I hate red, then yellow because I dislike yellow slightly less than red.  After that, I eat the color I have the fewest of and so on.  I'm pretty sure I need some sort of therapy...

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by DWG on Mar 16th, 2010, 7:18pm
I guess I'd need therapy too, because I would always eat them in some sort of color order. And I always saved the light brown ones for last.

I think blue threw off the color palate.

But according to the wikipedia (whether it's true or not, I don't know), long ago, the tan ones had replaced purple, so I guess what goes around comes around.

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning

Smarties in Canada are different than US ones.  US Smarties are those powdery tart things (Rockets in Canada).  Canadian Smarties are like M&Ms (Candy coated chocolates.  Closest thing in the US would be Sixlets, but they're smaller and round).

Lauren made me buy ketchup chips when I visited her a couple years ago.  :D

Favorites for me would be Milky Ways and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

There's Tim Hortons in Maine and I think other states along the border.

Way to forget me! I was fuchsia because I was going to be pink and then realized that "pink o" would make me sound like a communist.... oh, memories. :')

You missed an o on that trophy, btw. SHAME! :P

I seriously wish I could remember the origin of the tazer joke. 'Cause whatever it was it was beautiful. Some things are probably better off unknown though...

It was asking for it...


Haha and for a brief recap, Forbes:
I think it went like this--we started talking about how weird it was that there was one red o on Let Love In cover. So, nmf made an avatar with a red o. Since I can't resist destroying anything nmf puts on the boards, I made a blue o parody. Soon, everyone was making o's. Nicole was purple, Shannon was yellow, there was cerulean, an angel o that was purple, an orange one, I think a brown one, and a black one possibly...it became a penguin so I assume it was black.

Anyway, it went crazy from there. There were song parodies calling us Shannon's O's...then came the cereal boxes, regular AND frosted style, there were Christmas pictures with the O's...talk of making shirts so the Goos would see them...the infamous o-tasers...waffle-o's...

I went crazy when they rereleased Let Love In with the blue cover that had a blue o. I swore that they were reading our thread and knew blue was the second o we made. Also, I started adding Mama Taser's hair, eyes and makeup to random pictures...I distinctly recall doing it to a picture of a horse and someone's little brother or cousin or something. I'm sure there were more, but now I have brought it back with a vengeance!


Ahhh....the WOG memories!

If I start going through the whole thread, I'll be late for work.
There are some weird song parodies in there. Maybe a taser too, but I didn't have time to dig it up.

Well, okay...

maybe it's on page 17 of that thread; probably the taser in the early Eohippus stage. I would have to check in there, but it's so damn scary:

Hopefully Nicole or nmf will be able to add some details to the story.


I don't even know what the story is that I'm supposed to add to..

Drew changed his name and we joked about changing our names to other people's.  I changed my name to Shade, Drew's old name and thought I creeped him out so I changed over to DWG for a while and then became 'the red o' because we had been talking about it.  Then Drew came back, became 'the blue o' because he's a pain who copies me a lot ( :D ) and then others jumped on the bandwagon.  Hilarity ensued.

Os I recall: red, blue, green, fuchsia, purple, yellow, orange, black, white, teal, angel, chocolate

The best part of the whole 'o' thing is still Nicole joining the board and becoming an o immediately.  I am still convinced Nicole is an elaborate prank by Drew.

Tasers: I believe tasers came from the ridiculous chats some of us had and they carried over to the board.  I said something about buying tasers and Drew told me they should have Os engraved on them.  So I made a (crappy) taser with an O on it.  DWG said it looked like a face.  So I made the lady taser and Drew did whatever he does with everything

What a momentous occasion. The conclusion of the first part (of many) of the Name Change Thread. Why, I remember the day I made this thread....actually, I can't even remember what I ate this morning, let alone what I posted months ago.

But even though the thread will live on, just in a newer, faster thread, I'd still like to take this time to thank the many things that helped this thread make it what it is.

Firstly, you've gotta thank the tasers. We wouldn't have won so many turf wars without them. And the O breakfast products...I mean, nmf may not like them but we forced her to eat them anyway. Along with a lot of bacon. That was a good time.

Gotta thank Shannon for allowing me to post it here and start the madness...I suppose I should thank myself for hating my previous name...I think the Goos may have had a part in this, too, I'm not sure. We'll thank them just in case.

We have to thank the album artist who messed up, thinking "Out of the Red" said "the red o" and thus created the red o on the LLI cover that spawned the o cult. I'd also like to thank Vince Vaughn and K-Fed for providing their names for the services of the chat sessions that were always primarily made up of o's. Might as well thank Chester Lewis, too, while I'm at it. Somewhere out there he's getting beat up in an alley somewhere, but we won't hold a moment of silence 'cause he's a jerk anyway.

Oh yeah, thank you to the posters who posted. I suppose it wasn't possible for the thread to post by itself, so you all picked up the slack and got it to 150 pages. Give yourself 150 pats on the back...or 150 slaps across the face, I dunno if its a good or bad thing this got so long.

And now for some memories of this thread. Firstly, you've gotta remember the trophies. They were awesome until I got the Stanley Cup and nmf started using the same trophy for everyone. I mean, jeeze, she couldn't have stolen the other fake Stanley Cups that the NHL has, too? Or maybe the World Series trophy? Some people...

Then there were the song parodies...we won't talk much about those. There was the Goo on Goo love, the different avatars for every occasion, a bunch of dancing nanners, some post and birthday celebrations, iPods, Canadian money, penguins, Vault, the eating of souls, the undercover felt blue o, not to mention that time we found the underground archive containing SSCW2 and it's 36 stunning tracks, the time we survived the apocalypse, the time we saved the rainforests, the time Walt Disney came back to life to make a movie about us, and the time we all went on a trip to Hawaii. Oh, the memories...

But now it's time to kill this part and start fresh, so here's the link to Part II of the ATTN: Name Change thread:
http://www.musicfanclubs.org/cgi-bin/ggd/YaBB.cgi?board=maingooboard;action=display;num=1170722765;start=0#3

As one of possibly two people who will understand your incredibly obscure new user name, I FUCKING LOVE IT.  All you need is the blurry picture.

As for the setlists, the two shows played so far have been kind of 'specialty' shows where people come for an event, not just to see the GGDs (the one tonight is kind of the same and it has joint headliners).  It makes sense that they are playing the more well known things like GALB for the general public instead of All Eyes On Me or Flat Top, which we know they have rehearsed.  John also said that they could play up to 6 new songs and so far they've only done 3.

From what I understand, the proper 'Spring tour' actually starts on Saturday in Oswego.  I expect the set list to get more exciting at that point (and it better, because I will be there).  We also haven't seen the new back drop or lighting yet.

Also, never call CLIG good while dissing American Girl ever again.

Glad you approve of the new name. I believe you are one of only 2 people who would not tell me that I misspelled the word "earnest".
The general public would be scared of Flat Top. It's so controversial, ya know.
Have fun at Oswego. I wish I lived closer to there; it would be fun to attend a show at one of the "sunny" schools, I mean SUNY.   ;D  (a little joke that only one person will understand)

Tim is my favorite contestant.  He's the Vote For the Worst pick and he's adorable and makes the judges look dumb and I love him for many reasons though singing is not one of them.

Capt Sully in in the audience!  I love him a lot.  Partially because he saved the lives of people on his plane, but mostly because he wanted to avoid having an overdue book.

Hmm. Interesting choices, in your top 10 songs, or whatever. I think I am going to post my favorite Goo songs.. I think it tells a lot about what kind of fan you are. Here are my ultimate favorite songs:

To Save space I will do it this way.

Sympathy
Here Is Gone
Big Machine
It's Over
Black Balloon
All Eyes on Me
What Do You Need
What a Scene
Can't Let It Go
Without You Here
Ain't that Unusual
Name
Long Way Down
BulletProof

I love all of the singles aswell, except for all the singles on LLI but SWY :)
And I could go on but won't. And probably forgot some.. :)

I definitely think there's something to the whole 'I love it because it's new' thing.

Slide was my 'first single'.  When it came out, I only knew about 10-15 GGD songs (I had collected songs off the radio when WEDG was super GGD friendly).  I heard it when it debuted on WEDG and the DJs were looping it on the radio for, like, half an hour.  I LOVED it.  I still like it but DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE HEARD THIS SONG IN THE LAST 12 YEARS?

When Here is Gone came out, I heard it for the first time on some AOL streaming radio thing and then it debuted on WEDG later that afternoon - pretty much the same way as Slide.  I LOVED it.  Then I got kind of tired of it because I heard it so much on the radio and in live performances.  But some really awesome stuff happened while the GGDs were playing HiG at the LIB concert and I fell back in love with it.  Pretty much every song on GF continues to rank higher and higher on my favorites list as time goes on.

I still don't know what the proper first single is off of LLI...  GALB?  Better Days?  SWY?

I really hate the original of GALB.  I've hated it forever.  I initially liked the GGD's version just because it was infinitely better than the original.  But that has worn off.. I never want to hear it again.

Better Days was originally a Christmas song.  And I liked it as a Christmas song because I hate standard Christmas songs.  But as a non-Christmas song, it doesn't do much for me, especially because I'm a heathen.

I liked SWY originally and I don't hate it now, but I never declared it the best song ever or anything.  I never liked the lyrics but it doesn't make me as angry as most of LLI.
 :D

I'm still bummed about the studio recording of Home.  I love it live and wish the studio recording had half the life in it on the live version.

Out of curiosity, why do songs on GF keep ranking higher and higher? I initially placed those songs very high and they've been dropping for me over time. I don't know why exactly. I know What A Scene, though fantastic live, grates on me on the album because the NAH NAH NAHs go on forever (and I like listening to the whole of songs). I prefer Listen and Strange Love to Up Up Up and Smash. Think About Me and It's Over, which I once loved, I rarely listen to. Maybe I just need to give it another good listen and I'll find there is no explanation and I really do still like them all a lot.


When GF originally came out, I didn't really know what to think of it.  I had discovered their entire catalog at the same time as DUTG, so everything else was lumped together and GF was the 'new kid in class' so I had a hard time figuring out where it ranked among the other albums for me.  My order had been HMU, then SSCW, then ABNG, then DUTG with Jed and FR not really being included, so GF was just kind of placed in the 5th position because the pattern said it should be there.  But as time has passed and the songs have held up for me, it has climbed in my rankings.  I would probably put it about even with SSCW now.

It helps that I believe the content of the songs on GF.  I can understand the bitterness of the album, especially John's songs.  Songs on GF still honestly make me feel the emotions behind them and those songs are the last offerings from the GGDs that make me feel that way so I value them more.

And I love the end of What a Scene just because they had intended to make those fade out and decided to be assholes and leave them in at full volume just because.  It makes me LOL.  :D

Thread's back. lol.


I didn't want to make a whole new post for this, but did anyone see John's twitter spam at about 2AM last night? Weird stuff.
Put chronologically for your convenience:

The weight of the world is lifted by love the evil machinations of forces beyond our control are relived by love

The noise of selfish pride is rendered Impotent by love Not love of vanity or status but true Concern for humanity Some connection

Beyond the technology that keeps us from forming real relationships Safe in our rooms free of disease And heartbreak

I'd rather be criticized than quoted Sentimental fool that I am Crisis is common to me I get scared when things are going well

I apologise if I let my feeling go too Far I'm just sick of bullshit "tweeti g" I hate Twitter your life can't be lived in 144 characters

Yet I do it therefore I am a hypocrite Please excuse me for my contempt I would really love to speak face to face with you

I meant to say relieved by love Sorry for the typo

[end]

Saying "sorry for the typo" for something that he'd sent 6 tweets ago is my favorite part. Anyway, what's he on about? :P

It's 'fine ul lee' to me.  Is it 'fine lee' to you?

No, it probably makes you a better person than me.  :D

Honestly, though, I work in a toxicology lab and the amount of bullshit excuses and lies I get from addicts who have tested positive for drugs would blow your mind.  I'm awfully desensitized to addicts' plights.

Work: I had a 'client' who claimed he might test positive for cocaine because he wiped a table with his hand and it may have had cocaine on it.  He tested HIGH positive for cocaine.

Lindsay: She was caught with cocaine in her pocket.  She claimed the pants she was wearing weren't her pants...

Man up.  Take responsibility for your problems.  She had years to deal with her addictions and refused to take any of her treatment seriously.  So now she goes to jail for breaking the law just like anyone else.  Boo hoo.

Oh, dude, we get these on a regular basis:
-straight alcohol (being tested for alcohol WHAT?)
-perfume
-iodine (WHAT WHAT)
-soap
-lemonade/ Mountain Dew
-bleach/ammonia
-blue water (meaning they just put the blue toilet water in the cup... because receiving a blue sample of urine isn't going to raise any red flags)

I like to pick out a favorite sample each day and follow it through the process.  I usually pick a sample that is one of the above items or one that has a fun story attached to it.  Pretty much every day of work is hilarious.

From SFTROU (this should change)

Nothing is Real
Still Your Song
Say You're Free
Hey Ya
Soldier

Gutterflower (100% certain on these)

Up, Up, Up
It's Over

Dizzy Up the Girl

Extra Pale (about 95% certain it hasn't been played)
Amigone (I want to say this has been played, but I can't find anything to support that)

A Boy Named Goo (starts getting iffy for me here)

Ain't That Unusual
So Long


Superstar Carwash

Domino
So Far Away


Fun fact: All Eyes On Me was not played on the DUTG tour.  It did not appear until the GF tour.  John had said that the touring DUTG band just could not arrange it in a way they were happy with.  (The GF tour version of this song is also a million times better than the LLI tour version of this song)

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by sftrOu on Sep 6th, 2010, 11:35am
I don't know specifically, but I'd imagine some of them are just hard to play.  

Domino probably would have been a mess live, So Far Away is kind of weird.

Up, Up, Up probably just got squeezed out of the setlist because by GF, Robby's share of the set list shrunk.

It's Over is the basis of the Still Your Song 'pretend this song doesn't exist' treatment.  (I always thought It's Over was way more personal than Sympathy, which John claimed was his most personal song.)


Obviously, we can't actually judge all the SFTROU songs until the end of the SFTROU era, but we have seen Soldier being rehearsed, so I expect it'll be played.  Nothing is Real is in the 'singles block' so I expect that will be played too.

Say You're Free may never happen just because Now I Hear has had such good reception live and Robby's down to only 4 songs live.  God, I wish Smash and Tucked Away would die...

Hey Ya may fall into the 'too difficult' category.

And ssssshhh, Still Your Song doesn't exist.

Plus One Night only made it, like, 7 nights before it was killed.  I feel like that's not coming back.

I seem to recall them making the "too personal" statement in regards to Extra Pale too, for what that's worth.

Is he still playing Smash live? Aaaagh. Tucked Away I can deal with because it's got so much energy to it, but Smash drags along after hearing it so many times. I'd rather hear Say You're Free for sure.

I should really know by now that any time I wake up and my phone says I have 11 new text messages, it's just John having a rant on twitter... not that I don't like what he has to say, but JOHN YOU'RE STILL USING IT WRONG :P

LOL.

You wake up, you think someone has died.  Then it's just 'Oh, hi, John.  I see you found a computer.'

Still less crazy than Kanye on Twitter.

OK, but only because of that whole loving-you-forever thing that I promised way back when. ;)

And really, someone needs to help John find a place where he can blog to his heart's content. I'd be happy to teach him how to use wordpress/blogger/tumblr/livejournal/myspace/ANYTHING. The man's got too much to say and not enough characters to fit it all in!

Thanks for saying hi.   >:(

Broadway was written for the Broadway-Fillmore area of Buffalo, which is where John grew up.  It is now a very poor area.

Broadway is a very long road so you weren't necessarily in the area the song is about if you're sitting there saying 'Broadway isn't so bad'.  Because Broadway-Fillmore is totally scary.

I think we should make a game out of it. See the name of the person who made the "most recent post" from years ago, and tell a story you remember about them so we know who they are.  Today's entry was:  Mar 28th, 2006, 8:37pm

An LLI song generator song



And you'd say a prayer for me
I'll stay with you
And that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive
That's been sleeping in your bed
Yeah you have become

He's never gonna break so go ahead and shake him
And you're actin' suprised
How do we hold on
And you're still the only light that fills the emptiness
And if we feel the silence

Wishing for you to find your way
And now everyone is gone
The world begins again
In dark and empty streets
Somehow I can't let you go

Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
You know it choked away the sun
And we'll be standing when you're gone
To a place that won't be home
I can't let you go again

And you were my fear
And then you're gone
The only one I need until my dying breath
We'll run forever

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by sftrOu on Nov 6th, 2010, 10:34pm
I need someplace simple where we could live
And through the fence I see a ghost of a place that used to breathe
I held the light to you
And that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive

You wait, wanting this world
And it's killin' me
Just say you understand
I'm close enough for you to see
And then you're gone

Your love's a gathered storm I chased across the sky
They couldn't hear our voice
And you remain
When it's caught up in the noise
And maybe my intentions have been misunderstood

How can you say that to me?
Will you justify me please?
How do we hold on
The color of your soul
And you were my fear
And I was no sin

Run to me now
Let me remind you
But you were no angel
And then you're gone

Gargoyles snort while cheating eyeing.  Lavender pumpkins squish are make.*  Disco bunny floats outdoors quietly.  NMF autovivificates brilliantly with ducks.  Armadillo mannequins stroll holding pucks.  Meringue pie stew charming icons.  Clamoring communists copulate chipmunks constantly.  Barcode boxcars churn within butter and flaggelate violently within bathtubs always.  Rough kittens devolve string mercilessly.  Bones approve of the milkman or drink scotch tigers with umbrellas.  Shade dictator fails at checkers.  Vanilla and squid taste awful.

Maybe I just have a really strong visual memory, but the footage in that commercial looks really old.

I think of a single in "old-skool" terms, like...
in 2 dimensions. Think "tocadiscos" (my favorite Spanish word).

So I think the new single can only have 1 B-side.

Hopefully the next B-side will be a LLI A-side.


New singles are either multi-dimensional or no-dimensional. Or maybe iTunes-dimensional. I can't figure it out. Either way, they should each have 4+ non-cover, non-remake B-sides, only one of which being acoustic if it sounds significantly different.

At least, that's what B-sides were like on Shade Island before it was nuked.

I've been shoveling snow like crazy this past week, and when we got that big "dump" recently I spent something like 5 hours straight shoveling. My left hand is still numb sometimes...not sure if it's because I used the snow-thrower or maybe a touch of frostbite...yikes.

Thanks for saving the thread.

We got lucky and didn't get any of the big snow stuff. You take care of that hand now. I hope you were joking about the frost bite.

But the sickness is another story. It was so bad at my kids school they closed for 2 days. 20% of the student body was out sick last Wednesday. And, after years of staying relatively healthy throughout flu season I got slammed. I haven't felt that bad in years. 4 days on the couch coughing and aching. It was awful. Now that I feel better I've gotten slammed with exhaustion. It's been terrible. I just hope this keeps me flu free for the next 10 years or so. I guess I was due.

I was fretting that I didn't know where I had placed my tickets & I wrote the ticket place & everything, then I logged in & realized they are at will call! LOL. RELIEVED.

The will call thing was why I was in such a panic. I wanted Terri to be able to get her ticket in the event I couldn't. I would have felt awful if she had to miss because of me. But it's all good now  ;D

We'll have to arrange a time & place to meet. Unless the casino has wi-fi somewhere I'll most likely have my phone off to avoid all the astronomical charges. So we'll have to be specific so we can find each other. I'm sure we'll get there early.

I'm here! Spring break at school, and I finally have a second to breathe. How is everyone? I'm sad that I was away now of all times when the Goo's are on tour and promoting the new album. Notbroken didn't do too well on the charts (Billboard and Canadian at least). I wonder why! Does anyone know if they are releasing another single off the album? I really hope they do. Hope everyone is doing well! I'll be back on the boards more regularaly from now on! :)

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by magnetronnie on Mar 2nd, 2011, 3:04am
Notbroken didn't do well because it was very badly timed (kinda released just before Christmas) and it was suppose to be properly released in January but Warner fucked up and never gave the song a proper Ad on the radio, so a lot of stations didn't want to play the song.

It's unbelievable how Warner keeps fucking up promoting our band up every time again. I hope the next album will be released on Good Charamel. ;D

Hey Forbes!  :claps: :claps: It's so nice to see you on here. Welcome back.

Ronnie ... I agree. Someone really dropped the ball with this single and it's such a shame. What a great song and it's epic live. Just huge! Here in Detroit we have one of the most Goo friendly stations around. Notbroken was NEVER added. I was so disappointed. I have yet to hear it on the radio anywhere here in a city that plays Goo on multiple stations all the time.  :shakehead: I just don't understand it at all.  :dunno:

Windsor get's majority Detroit stations. There is 93.9 the River & 95.1/100.7 The Rock (which plays old school & hard core/punk rock). So the only reliable station to listen to for Goo (if they play it once in a blue moon) is 93.9. :(

It's funny because my favorite stations are the Canadian ones. My all time fav is 89X. Great rock station! I love 93.9 and 98.7 is great too. But I tend to really like the Canadian singer/songwriter music that gets played on those stations. Really great music.

Isn't 89X a Windsor/Detroit station? They air from Windsor, I drive past the station all the time.

I think it's some law here that on Canadian Radio Station/Television Stations that there has to be 70% Canadian music played. I am starting to enjoy 93.9 now, I don't listen to much radio because I always have my iPod on in the car.

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by Shannon on Mar 9th, 2011, 12:14pm
Yes, 89X is a Windsor/Detroit station. And yes, those stations that are Canadian based do have to play 70% Canadian artists. And I LOVE that. Canadian music is great. Some of my favorite artists are Canadian.

I think we should have a seperate mini contest for "Best Goo Cover". I would actually be interested in knowing which one would win. My vote would probably go to Jenny or I Don't Want to Know.

On a different note, do you think we can ever expect a full solo album from John? If it happens, Sheryl Crow better collab on it with him.

Nothing Can Change You was the winner. Granted, that was without Postcards From Paradise, Catch Me Now I'm Falling, and Rough Boys, so maybe it would be a different result now.

Hall of Fame:

Official Favorite Song Tournament 1: Black Balloon (2nd place - Cuz You're Gone)
OFST 2: Cuz You're Gone (2nd place - Hate This Place)
OFST 3: Name (2nd place - Two Days in February)

That tournament must have took place within one of my many long breaks from posting (aka while I was in school).

I would like to do a Favorite Song from Gutterflower, DUTG, and ABNG. It would also be interesting to see out of the last 2 albums how the songs fare out against each other. I'm really down with anything though!

Gutterflower, DUTG, ABNG...yum. Like a kid in a candy store.

Good stuff, especially nice to hear in the current set list.
Shocking, I know...went to the show. Got second row...ho, ho, ho...

PS: Since when do they "Hoover" the stage before the show, and why is their vacuum so quiet?

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning

I had show Sunday and noticed the Hoover for the first time too. Thought it was strange until I read an article that said something about vacuuming it for Robby since he's barefoot. I'm not sure if that's true but it makes sense.

2nd row!!! Woot for you! After 2 front row shows in Toledo & Windsor I was due my time to sit in the very back. It was cool though because I was able to see the laser light show from the back. I don't think you can really take in the lights from close.

Don't apologize for being busy. The board will always be here. Just pop in when you can. At the time when it was always busy here, many of the main posters were younger and had a lot more spare time to post, etc. Now everyone is older and busy and so it's always quiet around here when it's not summer. That's okay. I've all been there. I understand. My weekends are usually pretty busy like that. I don't usually have time to post here then either. We just do what we can.

Are people excited about Last Hot Night in America just because it's a new song or because they actually like it? It seems when I read AG and YT people are very excited about that song, but it's probably the first song I've heard by them that I just don't care about at all. I would be fine with never hearing a studio version. For some reason it just doesn't excite me.

I can understand if people are just getting excited to hear new music, but if they actually like the song I want to understand what they like about it. The chorus is boring and makes no sense, the song itself seems like it wants to be energetic but never quite gets there, and the guitar is lacking. The only thing I like about it is the drums, but I think even these could have been better used in a better song. And for goodness sake, John, play your guitar for once.

Hopefully I will change my mind when I hear the studio version or hear it live...at first I thought I wouldn't like Nightmares and Dreams but it became one of my favorites on the album...but at this point I don't care to ever hear this song. I don't want to be negative, but as much as I try I can't get myself to like this. What are other people's thoughts?

Shade, I really don't like it thus far either. Which is fine! I just feel like I am less excited about a song, because I usually only buy the albums.

That being said, I love the song "All That You Are" - I am excited for the next album. I really hope there are some acoustic songs on the album, since Sympathy is my favorite song, and Gutterflower my favorite album.

I ripped the stream and listened to it a couple times right before it came out but it didn't really do much for me.  The best thing I can say about the new album is that it made me like the first single more... which is weird because I hated that song.

I was never a MB20 fan though.  Back in the day, Rob Thomas said something about GGDs and YOU HAD TO PICK A SIDE IN THAT EPIC NON-BATTLE so MB20 were dead to me even if I liked some of their singles.  I've tried to give them a chance recently but there are only a couple songs that I really love.

I saw a band I love last night called The Tragically Hip.

Background information since most Americans not in border cities will have no idea who they are:
They are older than GGDs
They have been a band longer than GGDs
They have a larger catalog than GGDs
They have released more largely successful singles than GGDs
They are way more famous in their native country Canada than GGDs are in the US (they can sell out Canadian arenas and stadiums easily)

They've played 3 shows on their US tour so far.  Each show was 2 solid hours.  Each show had 24 songs.  THEY HAVE PLAYED 46 DIFFERENT SONGS IN 3 SHOWS and there is no indication they won't add more.  They didn't play all of their biggest singles at each show and everyone survived.

All excuses about boring and unchanging setlists are invalid forever.


EDIT: With tonight's show, they've added 7 more new songs so 53 different songs in 4 shows...

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning

That is a pretty damn impressive rotation. I'm not familiar with the band but I'm glad they went above and beyond to really give the fans something special!

But seriously, to all WOG members past and present (but not future...they haven't earned it yet), Chester Lewis, Kevin Federline, Guns N Roses, Abraham Lincoln, and all others whose names and likenesses have been used at our expense, Happy Thanksgiving!

Merry Belated Christmas and Happy Early New Year.  (And Happy Birthday to me for the next 3 minutes)

I bring gifts!

I was having an email discussion with another GGD fan, Ronnie (magnetronnie) and I randomly asked if he had any cd singles with Hit or Miss as the b-side because I love that song but the version I have sounds like it was recorded on a cassette in a bathroom and I had just assumed that the crappy quality was intentional.  He very generously uploaded a high quality version of Hit Or Miss off his hard copy so I could compare it to the version everyone has.  Turns out that the version everyone has that's been floating around for 10+ years sucks!  Ronnie was kind enough to let me share his version which makes the song about a million times better!

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?azdamfcy4ap1vmt

So in thanks, here is a poem for Ronnie, with Christmas trees.  Disclaimer: I do not claim to be a poet or capable of rhyming.


:babytree:Ronnie is a fan of the Goo Goo Dolls:babytree:
:babytree:He also mails me mysterious things called stroopwafels:babytree:
:babytree:His birthday is New Year's Eve, the day after mine:babytree:
:babytree:So he gets super shafted on gifts, which isn't fine:babytree:
:babytree:Sometimes I make a pain in the ass request:babytree:
:babytree:And he always complies his very best:babytree:
:babytree:When he told me I could share Hit Or Miss:babytree:
:babytree:All he asked for was a post with smileys from Christmas:babytree:
:babytree:So thank you to Ronnie for what you do:babytree:
:babytree:And I hope 2013 is a great year for you (and Goo):babytree:

I'm going to pretend it's like Hey Ya.  We saw a billion different clips of Hey Ya and they were all horrendous.  Plus it was called Hey Ya.  And then it turned out to be one of my favorite tracks on the album.

Have you seen/heard any of the acoustic Rebel Beat performances?  If you ignore the fact that the song makes no sense, the acoustic version is nice.

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by Christina on Feb 5th, 2013, 9:04pm

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by Shade on Feb 5th, 2013, 10:00pm
The difference between Hey Ya and Come To Me is that when we hear the finished product of Come To Me it's going to have lots of "rebel beats" added to it.

Also, I forgot Hey Ya was one of your favorites on that album. It's still one of my least favorites on that album. The chorus makes me laugh every time because it sounds like he put no effort into it at all.

I must admit, acoustic Rebel Beat is better. Makes me wonder what I would think of it if it was done with electric guitar rather than rebel beats.

Also, does he say "when we're old and aliens" in Come To Me? I think this is the new "sleef."

I like what John says at the end of the clip. My thoughts exactly.

Finally, I hate AG's splash page because it means I hear 3 notes of Rebel Beat every time I load the page.

I 'got' Notbroken.  'Bulletproofangel' is awful though.  I keep ignoring the beginning part and reading 'fang gel' and then I think about vampires at the dentist and as I'm typing this, I realize I hope the song is about vampires at the dentist.  I've probably set the bar too high...

I just don't understand why there are now two songs named Bullet Proof. Maybe this song will sound just like Bullet Proof. Or maybe it will sound like crap.



Is Keep the Car Running a cover?

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by nmf016 on Feb 16th, 2013, 11:48pm
I have no idea if Keep The Car Running is a cover.  I know John has mentioned liking Arcade Fire before but that would be very weird, especially as the last track.  There has not been any talk of a cover being on the album

I'm disturbed by Rebel Beat being the first track.  The first song is generally supposed to be one of the strongest..

Anyone want to guess the Robby songs?  I'm guessing Happiest of Days and More of You.

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by Christina on Feb 17th, 2013, 12:13am
If Keep the Car Running is an Arcade Fire cover I am so done here.

I agree with your assessment of which song titles are most likely to be Robby's but I also suspect he might only sing one song this time around, in keeping with the "Robby sings less and less songs on each album" trend. I COULD BE WRONG

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by Shade on Feb 17th, 2013, 12:25am
I thought it was confirmed somewhere that he's singing two on this one. I can't remember where I read that. I agree with the two titles you predicted...they're both short titles and their placement on the album seems to be where Robby songs go.

A Keep the Car Running cover would be very odd as the album closer, but as far as I'm concerned anything goes for this one. I'm actually very relieved that Last Hot Night is on the album, despite not liking it when it came out, because I know I can at least tolerate it.

So do you think the song Bulletproofangel will explain why it's all one word? Notbroken never really explained it. I've also always been bothered by Matchbox Twenty's Back 2 Good. WHY THE "2"?

Bulletproofangel sounds like words taken from the DUTG album put together. Dizzyirisballoon. Broadwayeyesdream. Fullforeverslide.

Title: Re: Community Thread 4: The Reckoning
Post by nmf016 on Feb 17th, 2013, 9:15am
I think Robby has at least 2.  John said something about Robby's songS this time around.  I mean, I know I should know better about believing anything John says but it's all I've got right now.

'Notbroken' was a play on the title words not being broken up.  But you can't use that same play on words for 'Bulletproofangel' unless there's something in the song discusses plays on words, which I doubt.

I remember in the early 2000s when all the popstars had songs with U or 2 or 4 in them.  It happened because all of their songwriters were naming them that way because it was 'cool' and 'trendy' and the singer was stuck with it even if it was stupid.  That's obviously not the case for Back 2 Good or Bulletproofangel* but it reminds me of that.


*I guess we really have no idea who has creative control over GGD songs anymore so maybe that IS the case.

For what it's worth, I haven't been paying much attention & don't have access to the $30 fan club information so you guys probably know more than me. I'll take your word. ;)

2's and U's and 4's in song titles always give me a laugh. I'll allow people to get away with it if there's a reason or a precedent to follow, but y'know. Kinda glad I don't see any of that here. Someone probably just wrote the words "bulletproof angel" too close together on their notes and it was taken as gospel that it should all be one word or something...

LOL, no one learned anything from the fanclub, which is in shambles and deserted.  I haven't been a member in a long time.  Pretty much everything known right now comes from John's promo tour from hell.

Bulletproofangel is on Facebook.

As always, you can "like" bulletproofangel on Facebook.  :P

It says there:
"A mysterious woman with superhuman abilities and no memory of her past discovers that she may be mankind's only hope for survival against a hostile alien force bent on conquering the Earth."

note the alien reference pops up again. haha.

Sounds like some dang video game my son would be playing when he's supposed to be doing his homework.
And I am sure this all has nada to do with the song.

Sorry if all I can be is random.
I do have to say that if that's the album cover art, it is actually a lot better than the newest Bon Jovi one. Gah, that one's awful.

so tempted to change my username to Fullforeverslide.

~Sorry for all the repeated edits on this post. That's what happens when you get trapped at work for days on end during a snow storm. 'twas torture.

Please explain!



Hmm based on the alien motif in both Come To Me and now Bulletproofangel, it appears that this album will be telling a story from start to finish. And it all begins with a rebel beat. Clearly the last hot night in America is the night before the aliens invade.


DWG, I like the "4" you put in Full4everzlide.



Also, the original rebel beets:

haha....Killer Tofu.

I remember that.
kidz...

Yeah, I tried to use the name Fullforeverslide and every time I tried to enter it, it came out Fullforeverslid e

As if the space was essential to the meaning.
Hence the use of the 4
it's so hip too.   ::)

This is mandatory.

"Killer Tofu" has to be a Robby song.

I'd settle for the Name Dance Remix as the other bonus track

Live tracks are a cop-out

I love that the cover songs were extremely well received* for SFTROU so they aren't going to do any this time around.

GOOD PLAN, GUYS.  DON'T DO STUFF EVERYONE LIKES.









*We aren't counting Rough Boys because we are not even acknowledging it exists.  I shouldn't even have to make note of that here.

Post by Shade on Feb 20th, 2013, 10:24pm
Catch Me Now I'm Falling and Postcards From paradise are 2 of the best covers they've ever done. In fact, I listen to them more than all of SFTROU. Well, Keep the Car Running is potentially a cover, so maybe it was going to be a bonus track but then they only had 10 songs, so they stuck it on the end.

I keep a scorecard for Mike's twitter:

One Lifetime mention earns forgiveness for 5 douchey vegan comments.

One K-Fed mention earns forgiveness for 250,000 douchey prime number comments.

Mentioning Lifetime, K-Fed, Sharpies and Peeps in one Tweet earns forgiveness for anything forever.

Why are people saying Magnetic is not as dark as the last few albums? How was Let Love In dark? All they talked about when it came out was how much more optimistic it was than the other albums. And what tracks on SFTROU are dark besides Soldier? I think people are starting to drink the same the-last-album-is-garbage-compared-to-this-one-kool-aid that John drinks.

Hey people... what's up?

What are you all listening to these days?

I'm going in reverse time. Listening to lots of early Fleetwood Mac, Donovan, Cat Stevens. Saw both the Mac (twice) and Yusuf/Cat Stevens (twice) recently. Extremely good concerts.

I also saw Fleetwood Mac in Boston! They were AMAZING. I am naturally still listening to a lot of them and Stevie Nicks' solo stuff. I'm also really digging Robyn still, and have recently gotten really back on Sarah McLachlan's early stuff.. Amazing!

Woah it's been sooo long since I have posted. Am I a Goo God yet? I'll wait and see after this posts.. Haha.

How is everyone?
