You should probably delete this so they don't end up getting a ton of spam.

Edit: But yeah, I got this too :)

I don't know but I hope I get in! I rarely go to offspring shows anymore because I hate the bigger stadium shows. This seems like a smaller private show right up my alley! :D

It's legit. This was an email that was sent out. If you think that this means post your info here, then you are a tad confused :P

I believe this email was sent out via the offspring mailing list, but i'm not sure. He took out the address you were supposed to mail as they would just get completely spammed. If they're only looking for 200 people, i'm sure they've already got them by now.

Hey I know there's already a thread on this but I was wondering if anyone has received an additional email besides the confirmation one for the Offspring private show for the Yahoo Nissan Live Set. I have only received that one email and I am hoping (and praying) that I eventually receive a follow up email. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated!!

Wow, cool. But why is this? "tape"/"taping"? What does that mean? Is it like their gonna make a music video and need people? xD

Is it just USA people that recived the e-mail, maybe? Many questions, but I'm so interested, heheh.

07-24-2008, 05:24 PM
so question is... for those of us out west that emailed and want to go... how many of us got a response... because I literally replied like a minute after I got that email and only got the yahoo auto-response so far...

EDIT: So did not everyone get the auto-response? and after that its comforting to know no one else got a reply because i was going to be sad if I didn't make it considering how quickly I replied (I never get into these things) - but i was thrown off by we will contact you shortly if you're being considered or whatever hahaha

even less I think it was just west coast people.
But I guess Yahoo does some summer concert stuff (I went to the site and saw some weezer and other stuff up there) so yeah its like a small concert i guess that they're recording.

The east coast of the US didn't get it. I'm sure it was a very targeted email based on where you live and how likely it is that you can get to that area on the date specified.

Good luck to everyone that entered for it. Wish they'd have something like that in NYC.

Rag Doll
07-24-2008, 06:20 PM
Didn't get the email. I was agreeing with what hshduppsnt said about who got the email and who did not.

Though, I can't really see them picking people that are not from the area in which they are doing the concert. Why pick a whole bunch of people from New York or Iowa or Georgia, when it's in California? You'll end up with a bunch of winners that can't go and they'll have to pick new people anyways.

That sounds like a logical explanation but who is to say someone might send an email and say they're from say Cali when in reality they live in say Florida? Know what I mean? I highly doubt they're going to be checking the emails through IP addresses or doing traces. Not trying to argue cause I know there's no way in hell I'd get picked (cause I'm in Canada) but you know how many fake people and liers are out there and would do just about anything to go to something like this.

Rag Doll
07-24-2008, 07:23 PM
Well, for one thing, the email obviously didn't go out to everyone, so I doubt that was really something they'd think of. The amount of people that would do that is so small, since no one except those targeted would even know about the email (except that it was mentioned here).

I'd imagine they'll ask people where they're from if they're selected, or if the date works, or whatever. That way they can quickly get more people if need be.

jonbb11
07-24-2008, 07:36 PM
Yeah i havent gotten a repsonse yet other than that automated response. I guess they're still tallying up who can go and where they're located. The response should arrive soon hence the fact that the automated response said that we would get an automated response "shortly."

the last email they sent out didn't say where the taping is, they gave an address for a parking lot in century city then said they would shuttle us to the studio haha

WOW. The same place I saw Alanis Morissette early this year. And the email is totally like the one I got. So this information must be true.

Well, as far as I know it's going to be taped ina Fox Studios.

This is the adress:

CPW Parking Structure
2030 Century Park West
Century City, CA 90067

No telephones or cameras allowed. If you have any of this they won't even let you go in the bus they provide.

It's an amazing experience being that close to your favorite band.

Regarding questions, I don't know if it will be the same with the Offsping, but with Alanis, the chosen fans didn't ask what they want, they had to read a question in a piece of paper.

So you're in MD? Interesting cause someone else thought that they'd only be emailing people back that live in the LA area. Maybe other people have a chance cause I'm not very geographical, but I do know that MD is pretty far away from LA. (My kids' Dad live in Reistertown.)

Ohright. You're pretty new here, so. Cammie didn't always live in Maryland. She used to live much closer to California (I'm thinking somewhere in Mexico, where she frequented California pretty often, but I might be confusing her with another girl that posts here). She may have been living there or told them she lived there when that concert took place? I don't know, she'll have to answer that =)

Well, I didn't get the email from the mailing list. I actually haven't been getting them in a while.

I live in MD yes, but I would have no problem flying there for this show. I would give up Virgin Mobile and other 2 Alanis concerts to go there because that's the closest I could ever get from the band.

Enjoi, I've not been properly invited yet. I got only the first email, and my friend who lives in LA, very close to the venue hasn't either. We're standing by.

Sam, I've always lived in Brazil, never been to Mexico and had never been to California until the day I got invited for Nissan Yahoo live Sets.

I flew from MD to LA and I said on the email that I lived far and wanted to go. The girl that introduced the show was from Philadelphia. As far as I know it doesn't matter where you are from, as long as you provide transportation. Well, at least for that performance it didn't matter.

There must be another reason why not all the member didn't get the mailing list email. They've not been targeted and also that some other people didn't get the confirmation email.



I never said she was. I thought she said she had the same thing (same place) when she saw Alantis Morrisett or whatever her name is. And won tickets to see her.

YES. It was the same place and will be the same pllace because it's where all the shows for Yahoo Sets are taped there. And you guys won't get tickets. Your names will be on a list. So just bring an I.D and nothing else.

That's what I thought at first, Anya! That's ok.

But Sam, my friend who had the the other two times I'd been to LA didn't get the mailing list nor the follow up emails. He lives acorss the street from where they pick the audience. That's why I thought it was weird.

If you have properly submitted your info as requested, your name and your guest’s name will be on the guest list. Photo ID is required for entry from all guests..."

If so, that seems like all you need to gain entry.

We have this email. But I remember when we got invited to see Alanis, we got more than only one email. That's why we're kind of worried. I 'll tell my friends to try anyways.. I just can't go and risk not getting in. That would be fucked up.

It definitely doesn't look like you should expect another e-mail. After all, it does say "your name and guests name will be on the guest list." I've never been to one of these events before, but since I'm new to it, I would arrive expecting entry, considering I submitted my information as requested and that e-mail (albeit is was an auto-reply) does say that I was one of the first 200, my name will be on the guestlist, etc.

Maybe after Aug 3 at noon, when the e-mail process closes, we can expect another e-mail with more concrete details? Although I'm not sure what else you'd need, we have the address, we have the time, seems solid to me :)

Well, I hope so...

I'm sad my friends from LA and I didn't get the proper invitation. We got the first emails saying we were one of the 200, but no follow ups.

I'm not flying to LA...

:(

Yeah, that would be cool. :rolleyes:
If this show is to promote new albums, they should play many new songs...and it's gonna be taped!


EDIT: send them a mail, call them or something if you're unsure? They prob have a website with "contact us".

There is nothing hard to understand. I mean there is, I don't understand your question.

I'm asking the guys who have been invited if they got the second email. I can't risk flying all the way to LA and not be on that list. They said the first email should be okay, but I am afraid either way. So I wonder if they got the second email. That's all.

I got 3 emails.

The first was the one sent by the list to email getmein@ymail
I then got an autoreply that said we will contact you shortly if you are in the first 200

Your email has been received and is currently being processed. Please note, if you did not include your NAME and your LOCATION, you will not be considered for the guest list. If you are being considered we will contact you shortly.

Your email address is saved in our system. Make sure to ALWAYS respond using the same address.

Then a day later was the second email that looked a lot like the one you linked right there

Then I immediately replied to that and got this one that Zbadhabitz talked about



Good for you. You are one of the first 200 to email us for Nissan Live Sets on Yahoo! Music!

If you have properly submitted your info as requested, your name and your guests name will be on the guest list. Photo ID is required for entry from all guests.

Must be 13 years and older to attend. If you are under 18 you must be accompanied by an adult (someone at least 18 years of age) as your guest and we must have their name as it appears on their photo ID.

PLEASE NOTE if you have not properly submitted your information as previously requested we cannot guarantee entrance to the event.


I doubt there will be any other emails since the given information requested was simply whatever your name looks like on whatever piece of ID you want to use, along with your guest (and questions if you had any but yeah). So if you got those three I have to imagine you're getting in. And if anyone proves me wrong I'm going to be very Very sad... because I took this to mean i got in hahaha

Camilamazed
07-29-2008, 12:34 PM

yes - the second email... before the third one (and last one i quoted above) is basically identical to what you sent just for this event/band. (i didn't quote this email above because it was big and im too lazy to make the effort) lol.

When I replied to that email I got the reply that says "good for you..."

07-29-2008, 05:22 PM
There is one more e-mail that you should receive AFTER the one you gave a screenshot of, Camilamazed. It's the one that I and hshduppsnt referenced, that said something like "Congratulations you are one of the first 200...if you submitted your information correctly then you will be on the list" (paraphrased).

The e-mail that you took a screenshot of, Camilamazed, is the one that already had the necessary information of where to be and what time. There was never any follow-up that had any more details other than what time the doors close and where to park. There was only the follow-up that I referenced above. I assume once we arrive at the parking location there will be someone with a guestlist and they'll shuttle us to the location where the filming will take place. Hope that helps you!!!

Just seems like bullshit. Shit do they not understand that the USA AND Canada are North America? Meaning we're all living on the same continent? Like say for instance someone lives in NY (Buffalo) that is a 2 hour drive (south) from me. They get picked, and I don't because I'm in Canada? Just doesn't make sense to me. Not pissed at you hun, just don't understand why Canadians never get picked for special (to me it is) stuff like this.

They really picked the people they wanted which is really sad. I'm sure far-away fans would make it no matter what unlikely random people.

It's their very first release from 1986. I think they would enjoy seeing their original release that is over 22 years old now. Plus, it seems like the people that are going were asked to bring questions. One of my i'll be waiting singles may be my ticket in the door as it would definitely be a fantastic conversation piece.

Ok now I got the point, I understood that during the show you wanted to throw your copy on stage...and that woul be pointless wouldn't it... :D I'd like to get my copy signed too if I'd got a chance. When they'll come here I'll see. I know for sure I won't get it signed by Pete :D

I'm a californian fan. I got the E-mail to go to the live sets.
And I believe that only people from the area get invited since the place is really small. Also, even if people lie about their location they can check it because when you're a part of the offspring fan list you pit your real adress or most people would. Anyhow, I got picked for the show..
and i think they already got the 200 people.

I sended my e-mail with my name and the guest name and i got an auto response.

it says this:

The list for the exclusive event with The Offspring is now CLOSED. If you have not already received a confirmation email, you will not be on the list. Thank you for your interest! Any questions please email .... blah blah

so what does this mean?
does this mean i should wait for any more e-mails or that's it?

Hey so I just got back from the Offspring playing at the Yahoo! Nissan Live Set. It was such a fantastic experience and the guys were really appreciative of us being there. The crowd was so into it and I can't wait to see the end product as they said it should be available on Yahoo! for viewing on September 15th. They opened with Hammerhead, followed by You're Gonna Go Far Kid, then The Kids Aren't Alright, Pretty Fly For a White Guy, Come Out and Play, then I believe came the Q&A session where Noodles and Dexter answered. Gotta Get Away, Gone Away, Walla Walla, Want You Bad, Bad Habit, Staring at the Sun, Self Esteem (TWICE becuase of a lighting problem). I think that's it and the order could be a little wrong. The sound was great and overall it was just such a fulfilling evening. Hopefully after their journey to Japan the guys can come back and do it again!!

yeah tonight was a lot of fun right?
I particularly enjoyed yelling different things at them and having them respond (like getting Greg K's attention the first time, and actually getting him to wave the 2nd time)

the big uproar we gave Pete

or my friend asking Noodles what he did wrong when we heard they had to play Self Esteem twice

hahaha

or a proud moment for me :)
when they were asking what to play, people yelling out stuff
and I yell out blackball and dexter laughs, points at me and says "wow you guys are going deep there" haha :)

tonight I have to say concert wise, it was a little weird being in that crowd at first, seemed no one was sure what we were supposed to do, but those like 30/45 second lulls between each song started to become more and more entertaining...
(though ironically no amazing quotes that I can think of off the top of my head) - can't wait for the album tour :)

Hmmm...well, if they concider coming to Norway this year, it would be snow here then (it's summer and hot now, but not in the last part of the year). So, if they do european tour next year and come to Norway, the snow will probably be gone by then. :D But they're probably not coming... :/

awesome dude, congrats!



yeah tonight was a lot of fun right?
I particularly enjoyed yelling different things at them and having them respond (like getting Greg K's attention the first time, and actually getting him to wave the 2nd time)

the big uproar we gave Pete

or my friend asking Noodles what he did wrong when we heard they had to play Self Esteem twice

hahaha

or a proud moment for me :)
when they were asking what to play, people yelling out stuff
and I yell out blackball and dexter laughs, points at me and says "wow you guys are going deep there" haha :)

tonight I have to say concert wise, it was a little weird being in that crowd at first, seemed no one was sure what we were supposed to do, but those like 30/45 second lulls between each song started to become more and more entertaining...
(though ironically no amazing quotes that I can think of off the top of my head) - can't wait for the album tour :)


I am a regular lurker here, but have never posted. I was at the taping last night. I was right near you hshduppsnt I belive because I remember the Blackball line. Dexter heard you and his eyes went wide and he was pointing and laughing. I was in the front row with the blue hat and blue t-shirt yelling out stuff to the guys. It was a great show with great sound and energy. Being able to be so close and talk with the band in between songs and have them answer was fun. We could yell stuff out and they would laugh and respond to everything.

We all met in a parking structure about a mile away from the FOX studios lot and were shuttled in by bus 25 people at a time.They told everyone not to have anything on them but their ID. We were then checked in through a security gate with a metal detector and and had to have our names checked off a list. We then waited in line about an hour until we went into the sound studio. We then had to be instructed on how to cheer and behave for all of cameras. They filmed us cheering and pretending to rock out to some music for the cut away shots. They then introduced the band and they came out to play. It sounded great! Then there was about about 45 seconds in between songs and the studio would get very quiet, so everyone started yelling stuff out. Some of the quotes I remember:

Noodles had a beer behind the amp and took a swig and everyone was yelling and he said "What did you expect me to be drinking!?"

People were yelling out "Burn It Up" and "Genocide" and Dexter asked if anyone there was at last nights Secret Show. We all yelled and he said " I thought you all looked familiar!".

Everyne started yelling out "Pete" and they were all laughing.

The Q & A session came after 5 songs and the questions were asked from random people in the audience. Only Noodles & Dexter were there in chairs. I can't remeber them all (6 questions I think). They asked aout about their first show they ever played and Noodles said it was in San Francisco and they were the first band to play one night and it was great to play where so many legends had played. Then someone from Brazil asked a question( dont remember) and then asked if they would come play in Brazil and Dexter said to Noodles "Brazil...Huh... I don't know, maybe?". A girl asked Dexter if he regrets not finishing all of his college and playing in a band instead and he said "No" only. The whole crowd laughed at this. Someone asked what was the most indulgent thing you have bought and Noodles said a guitar collection and that he just bought a 19 foot camper (someone yelled out "Thats Punk" which was hilarious)and Dexter said a "Russian Fighter Jet" and started laughing. Someone asked about the new albums message but I dont remember what they said. Someone asked about Dexter flying and he said he loves to do it and Noodles said he flys with Dexter allot and they had a "Scary 8 minutes in Germany in bad weather". A girl then asked what is the most embrassing songs on your IPOD and Dexter said " This may sound weird, but I dont have an IPOD" and everyone laughed and Noodles was thinking and people were yelling out stuff like "Britney" and he said "that's not embrassing I do have her songs, I would have to say a song by Traci Lords".
After every question the director would tell the audience "small applause" and Dexter would bust up laughing every time.

They then went through the rest of the songs and after Self Esteem the director guy said there was a lighting problem and they would have to do it again. Everyone was yelling that it was Noodles who messed up and he said
"I F'ed up during Kids but not that song!" .They said we would have to wait 3 minutes, so Dexter said lets play another song and they did. Then when it was time to play it again Dexter said "Everyone act like you've never heard this song before!". It was a great time and I cannot wait to see the finshed product on September 15th. To be able to be in that small of a setting and up close with the band was an amazing experience. Sorry if this review was long winded or a spoiler to anyone!

angelsfan1 - were you off to the left a little? by Greg? there was a guy to my right with a hat too so I'm trying to remember which one you were

in any case good recollection of the show, I always seem to forget the small details -

but yeah I agree - the ability to talk to them and have them laugh the entire time was great - it was a nice addition to what was actually kind of a weird show with the way they made us cheer at times.

Remember this? "Guys I need more stock footage so you're going to pretend dexter and the guys are playing a song, then just finishing it, so... no looking like you're singing along, nothing like that, just sorta cheer"...

not singing along? you sir, have clearly never been to an offspring show hahaha

so if you guys watch this and suddenly it looks like no one is singing along, thats why.

and don't forget "just a little applause now... good"

Then someone from Brazil asked a question( dont remember) and then asked if they would come play in Brazil and Dexter said to Noodles "Brazil...Huh... I don't know, maybe?". Dexter would bust up laughing every time.

Im the brazilian girl!!!
My question was something like that:
"Hi guys my name is Silvia Im a very big fan from Brasil and I hope you guys can make it back there soon.My question is, I really like how different the new album Rise and Fall sounds, I would like to know what message you guys want the fans to take from it , specially when you wrote songs like Hammerhead and Trust in you"

All the 6 questions were made by people who sent emails, so we did not have a choice, at least I got to change mine a little bit.The original question mentioned things like "I like how serious and dark the new album sounds", dark??? I dont think it sounds dark at all, so they let me change it.

I dont remember the answer at all, I was so freacking nervous up there, that all I did was look at the guys and think "Oh my God Im talking to Dexter and Noodles"

After the taping, I got to meet all the guys,it was sooooooooooooooooo great.
For fans in Brasil and South America: OFFSPRING IN NOVEMBER 2008!!!(info given to me by Dexter, Noodles and Greg).I made it clear to Dexter that we (south americans) want songs for the first two albums and that we DO KNOW all the lyrics!!! he said "ok, Ill keep that in mind".:)
For fans in the US: No shows here for the "real tour" until at least JANUARY.(This info was given to me by Greg).So it should mean, no Europe until at least march next year or later on, I believe.

Thanks Offspring for being so cool not only to me, but to all the fans, giving us an amazing show last sunday and a another great one yesterday, and better yet all for free!!!:):D:)

hshduppsnt, yeah I was the guy in the blue hat and blue button up work shirt off to your left in front of Greg in the front row. I was with the guy in the black hat and shirt right next to me. I also was the guy who said at the end when the director said:
" Now does everyone here know where to find Yahoo Live Sets online?" I yelled out "Google It!" and the director got pissed at me. I told him sorry after the show and he gave me a set list list and one of Noodles' picks and told me that was pretty funny! Everyone was yelling so much funny stuff I almost pissed myself. The "little applause" thing was freakin hilarious! I told the people around me that this was the wierdest show I had ever been to. Everyone was like robots and extras for a film shoot. I was saying that at a regular small venue show we would all be up against the stage and jumping into the crowd. There were little kids in the front that would have been destroyed. The guys behind me started to get a little crazy and start pushing everyone, which would have been fun, and they threw one guy out instantly. The cameras were in our faces the whole time which I thought was lame and made me nervous to try and look good.

haha yes, I remember you, the "google it" was Hilarious, well done!
I know what you mean though it was odd, I was wondering the whole time like... am I going to look like an idiot doing this later? but it was still a good time. Yeah we got a little pushing going on around Bad Habit, luckily no one got tossed for that one. There was that tiny little kid in front of me the whole time though so I was afraid even to just sorta jump up and down haha.

hey guys. been a long time offspring fan, but have no idea why i havent been here before.

i was fortunate enough to be at this show too. in fact, the guy that got thrown out was my brother. we barely got there in time before they started the show and got a spot front left stage. after all the pushing happened, i wound up center stage, about two people right of you when you yelled "Google it!"

good to see that i wasnt the only one that wasnt sure how to act. regardless of which i did have fun and hope that everyone else that went had fun too

To me it didn't seem difficult to understand, maybe because my own English is far from perfect.

VIP - if they got in different way they totally didn't have a problem. Girl in front of me (RIGHT in front of dexter) had a camera and was doing all this and that. Then all I did was ask her how she got a camera in and she freaked and went ran back where her dad was and gave him her camera.

so there's your answer.

I remember this girl, she was like 3 people away from me, wearing a striped t shirt, I thought she was given a camera by the producers, since some people were given cameras to take photos from the show, but would have to return them later.
Anyway, does not really matter, lol.Thanks for answering.

So I have this HD channel (called Music in High Definition) that as one of their programs has the title LIVE SETS with the band performing following it. And I happened to watch one episode and it was the Foo Fighters from their time at the Yahoo Nissan Live Set Show! Does that mean that on the 15th of September they will air the Offspring's show? Watching it on the computer is one thing but seeing yourself in High Definition ain't that bad either.
The air time is only a half an hour which is much much shorter than the time the Offspring played so how do they cut the performance it if it is in fact aired? The Foo Fighters did have their Q&A session included in their program so I'm assuming the Offspring will have theirs in there also. On Yahoo all the songs plus the Q&A are guaranteed to be included... and if Yahoo follows suit... a CD will follow for purchase!!

I am a regular lurker here, but have never posted. I was at the taping last night. I was right near you hshduppsnt I belive because I remember the Blackball line. Dexter heard you and his eyes went wide and he was pointing and laughing. I was in the front row with the blue hat and blue t-shirt yelling out stuff to the guys. It was a great show with great sound and energy. Being able to be so close and talk with the band in between songs and have them answer was fun. We could yell stuff out and they would laugh and respond to everything.

We all met in a parking structure about a mile away from the FOX studios lot and were shuttled in by bus 25 people at a time.They told everyone not to have anything on them but their ID. We were then checked in through a security gate with a metal detector and and had to have our names checked off a list. We then waited in line about an hour until we went into the sound studio. We then had to be instructed on how to cheer and behave for all of cameras. They filmed us cheering and pretending to rock out to some music for the cut away shots. They then introduced the band and they came out to play. It sounded great! Then there was about about 45 seconds in between songs and the studio would get very quiet, so everyone started yelling stuff out. Some of the quotes I remember:

Noodles had a beer behind the amp and took a swig and everyone was yelling and he said "What did you expect me to be drinking!?"

People were yelling out "Burn It Up" and "Genocide" and Dexter asked if anyone there was at last nights Secret Show. We all yelled and he said " I thought you all looked familiar!".

Everyne started yelling out "Pete" and they were all laughing.

The Q & A session came after 5 songs and the questions were asked from random people in the audience. Only Noodles & Dexter were there in chairs. I can't remeber them all (6 questions I think). They asked aout about their first show they ever played and Noodles said it was in San Francisco and they were the first band to play one night and it was great to play where so many legends had played. Then someone from Brazil asked a question( dont remember) and then asked if they would come play in Brazil and Dexter said to Noodles "Brazil...Huh... I don't know, maybe?". A girl asked Dexter if he regrets not finishing all of his college and playing in a band instead and he said "No" only. The whole crowd laughed at this. Someone asked what was the most indulgent thing you have bought and Noodles said a guitar collection and that he just bought a 19 foot camper (someone yelled out "Thats Punk" which was hilarious)and Dexter said a "Russian Fighter Jet" and started laughing. Someone asked about the new albums message but I dont remember what they said. Someone asked about Dexter flying and he said he loves to do it and Noodles said he flys with Dexter allot and they had a "Scary 8 minutes in Germany in bad weather". A girl then asked what is the most embrassing songs on your IPOD and Dexter said " This may sound weird, but I dont have an IPOD" and everyone laughed and Noodles was thinking and people were yelling out stuff like "Britney" and he said "that's not embrassing I do have her songs, I would have to say a song by Traci Lords".
After every question the director would tell the audience "small applause" and Dexter would bust up laughing every time.

They then went through the rest of the songs and after Self Esteem the director guy said there was a lighting problem and they would have to do it again. Everyone was yelling that it was Noodles who messed up and he said
"I F'ed up during Kids but not that song!" .They said we would have to wait 3 minutes, so Dexter said lets play another song and they did. Then when it was time to play it again Dexter said "Everyone act like you've never heard this song before!". It was a great time and I cannot wait to see the finshed product on September 15th. To be able to be in that small of a setting and up close with the band was an amazing experience. Sorry if this review was long winded or a spoiler to anyone!


Finally September 15th is here. I'm just checking Yahoo's site for it, but it isn't up yet. I just hope I don't look like too big of a tool in the front row and not being able to get really into it because of security all around us, keeping us in check. I know it will look and sound great on the Palladia HD (was Music HD channel) music channel though beacause I have seen a few of those on there and they looked and sounded really nice on my HDTV. I think it takes a few weeks for it to be on that channel though. Oh well, enough of my ramblin', can't wait to see the finished product later today when they finally put it up!
