Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 5:55PM PDT (-0700 GMT)

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 5:57PM PDT (-0700 GMT)

Good Evening from Syracuse, New York.

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:00PM PDT (-0700 GMT)

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:01PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
OK, a question: When are you boys born?

oops, Im' sorry... Ididn't mean to send that twice.. I'm still figuring this thing out... :]

karenll (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:04PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
How was Mexico City?

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:05PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
God, I hate this modem!!

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:06PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Mexico City was poisonous and beautiful!

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:10PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Two concerts at the big opera house in Mexico City, wild audience, volatile exuberant, noisy, and garbed exclusively in black. Picked up some Spanish but I'm better now!

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:10PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
So what's next for you guys as a band??

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:13PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Will you ever release the "Swing" LP? I'm a big band convert.

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:13PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Please post your questions for David J now. Next leg of the US tour begins in Madison, WI on Friday night...

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:13PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Please come and play in Europe! America's very far away...

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:14PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Who all was involved in the Sinister Ducks project?

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:16PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Karenll; we are going to release the Swing LP. Funny you should ask, as we were discussing this very topic only yesterday. Get on your glad rags, the swing is nigh!

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:16PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
By the way David, do you like green apples?

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:17PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Any plans to play So. Cal. again? Your Glass House performance was incredible!

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:17PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
What is next for the band? Space travel!

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:18PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
GREAT! (aboutthe swing LP) any tenative release date yet?

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:21PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Intravenous: All those found guilty have been sentenced and served their time. Their names have been witheld in order that they can reintegrate into society without their crimes being held against them.

stevo3 (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:22PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
I was wondering about hot trip do you like that album its my fav. When and where did you record it.

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:23PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Stella: As long as the green is on the outside!

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:23PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
(about the ducks) hahaha.. I'm glad to see they've been dealt with accordingly. :)

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:23PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
I'm looking forward to your Buffalo, NY show. Hopefully, my friends and I will be able to get tickets. I'm also curious, which day of the Eden Music Fest will you perform?

stevo3 (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:24PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
David when did you guys decide to start playing Bauhaus songs again? Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:24PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
What's the name of the model in "Sweet Lover.."?

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:26PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
YES! BAUHAUS! BAUHAUS! B...sorry about that.

Frank_B (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:27PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
You guys worked with Perry Farrel on the new Porno Album, Janes was very muched influenced by you guys. Can you tell me about playing on the album?

stevo3 (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:28PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Did you guys ever get sued over the name of the band?

tkho (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:29PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
About "Shelf Life"... How many ? does it take to change a light bulb.

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:30PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Stevo: Today it is my favorite also! It was recorded amidst the pastoral idyll of the southern English countryside. Yet a stone s throw from the smoke [London town] and the estatic inspirational rush of the trance dance all-nighter

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:31PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
tkho: I believe it's "A and R" men.. (what a great line!)

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:32PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Another album release question...will the "Glittering Darkness" EP remain an import only? I can't find it anywhere.

Frank_B (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:33PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Did you teach Kevin to play drums?

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:34PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Stevo, we were told to start playing them again in a dream. We all had the same dream on the same night-- a black cloud descended from the heavens and there, sitting upon a glistening throne of gold sat Peter Murphy!

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:37PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
He raised a bony finger starwards and exclaimed, in a booming, dramatic voice, "LET THERE BE DARKNESS!...AND ROYALTY CHECKS!" amen.

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:38PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Karenll: Hope not. Good luck with the search, try looking under rocks!

Love_And_Rockets (David J): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:40PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
I taught Kevin all that he knows... apart from that nasty little habit and how to play drums!

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:41PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Will the Bubblemen appear in Buffalo?

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:42PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Can't you tell Daniel to stop pretending he's the leadsinger in U2. He doesn't fool anyone with that hairstyle.

speye (speye): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:44PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Any chance of getting "It's A Drag" on a single or an album?

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:44PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Will the Bubblemen ever appear as alien abductors on an "X-Files" episode?

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:46PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Where is Planet Girl located? I would like to go there sometimes.

tkho (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:48PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Did you ever receive your soccer game? I have one more resource to check who may have it, if you're still looking.

speye (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 6:54PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Any chance of getting a compilation of live recordings? It's refreshing to hear some of the different approaches you taken to performing your songs live than in the studio. It would be nice to bottle a few of those sounds.

speye (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:01PM PDT (-0700 GMT)

ooops! darn repeat keys

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:09PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
David, do you guys ever plan to play any Hot Trip material live?

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:09PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Zippedidodah zippedihey...

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:10PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Whoa there Stella, don't go and have TOO much fun on us..

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:11PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Whoa there Stella, don't go and have TOO much fun on us..

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:12PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Doh! I hate when that happens!

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:15PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
What happened to david?

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:15PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
...oh my, my what a wonderful day! David seems busy trying to answer our many questions...

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:15PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
and everyone else, for that matter..

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:15PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
David, are you still with us?

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:15PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Maybe he got bored and went down to the pub?

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:16PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
whoa..he must be writing one HUGE response.. :] poor guy..

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:17PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
I'd laugh if he left a half an hour ago and we didnt' notice...

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:18PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Mebbe some pesky bubblemen showed up and have taken him hostage, demanding we do an online wobble..

tkho (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:19PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
I think we lost David. He's not on the Who's On list.

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:19PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Maybe it was the Bubblemen...I've always thought they seemed a bit evil.

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:19PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
yeah he is... he's Love_and_Rockets

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:20PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
WOBBLE WOBBLE! What's clean-shaven and knocks on the window?

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:21PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Yeah, me too... Not evil enough to serenade us with a Ukelele, but mayhaps a trite mischevious..

tkho (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:21PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
I'm aware that he's Love_and_Rockets. So, if you refresh the page, he doesn't exist.

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:22PM PDT (-0700 GMT)

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:23PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Maybe he's doing a live version of Dreamtime for us, but since the level's so low, we aren't noticing..

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:24PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
You're right Tkho, so what the heck are we doing here then!?

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:24PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Well, if he did log off without a word, that's a tad rude, isn't it? I would like to think he wouldn't do that. Maybe he has an emergency to attend to. I wonder what it could be.....

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:24PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
A skinhead in a microwave-oven...(that's the punchline... OK, you don't have to laugh) Well, maybe we should wrap it up here, guys...

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:25PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Hopefully it's not another fire

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:27PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Maybe he tipped his coffee over the keyboard...no, probably not..

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:28PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Hopefully it's not another fire

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:29PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
GRRRRRRR.. The repeats here really bug me.

tkho (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:29PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
I think we lost David. He's not on the Who's On list.

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:29PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Well, I do wonder why there are people lurking here.. I mean, WHAT is there to watch!??!?!

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:30PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Why are we still here?? This is silly!

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:31PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Isnt' it? My bet is that he got fed up with the way this chat system works, felt overwhelmed, and left... I'd also kinda be bummed if only 5 people showed up..

tkho (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:31PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
sorry, didn't mean to repeat myself. I think I'll go.

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:31PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
We're here cause we're hopeless.

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:32PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
tkho, it's me whos repeating..that's what's buggin' me..

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:33PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
tkho, it's me whos repeating..that's what's buggin' me..

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:34PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
ARGGH!

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:34PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
OH well.. I suppose it's time we left...

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:34PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Yeah, I'm really hopeless! It's 4:34 AM and I'm sitting here typing meaningless things! I think I will go and sleep or something...

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:38PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
WEll, it was nice talking with ya....

Intravenous (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:39PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
WEll, it was nice talking with ya....

Stella Spente (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:39PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Well, have a wonderful life! Byeee!

speye (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 7:46PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
Alright already!!! What is this? The last of the Mohicans???

karenll (): . . . . Tue, May 21, 8:26PM PDT (-0700 GMT)
It's been fun chatting. I'm a bit frustrated with Mr. J for leaving us that way though. I have to go. It's getting on and I have to let my dog out. Bye Speye. (I like the way that rhymes.)
