Lucky! Was he cool?


He was so nice, got my Heavens promo signed by him and Joe and a picture.
#83
That's true. He did seem tall. Although I'm 6' so it didn't seem to be a towering difference.

Yeah, he is pretty tall. You can tell if you watch Heavens new video, or look at any of their pics, cause he towers over Joe.
#85
Yeah, I had noticed that as well. He is a tall guy.

Although I'm attracted more to his music.

Lol, yeah. I just thought I'd contribute to the current topic being discussed...

Ha. Well, you don't necessarily need a mod, you could just make an 'Official' thread on your own. PMing a mod is just a nicer way to do it.

Andrew will tell you.

EDIT: Woo hoo this was my 2000th post! Everyone cheer!

Is it just me or is there like 5 Alk3 threads right now? Someone should PM a MOD and ask if they could an official thread *NudgesAtGreenfinger182* .

Yeah, I agree.

Wait. What's this now?


What happened?

-stepco


We went over this a while ago in the New Alk3 CD thread,or w/e it was called. Appearently, they delayed the release and the tracks are supposed to be changing. Greenfinger mislead us (Even though I'm probably not gonna buy the CD anyway.)

Oh, I didn't, simply because your source was Wikipedia.

Yes, I think the album has the potential to be great, but I hope they don't throw it together. The way they had it there it seemed like they just took different songs off of different albums and put them in order. I think they should mix them up some and put them in the right place. Not enough people actually realize track listing can be a factor in how good an album is. Imagine your favorite album with the emotional, slow, possibly acoustic ending song. Now, imagine that ending song at the beginning of the album, and the starting song, usually on a more powerful note, as your ending song. Doesn't that seem to change it completely?

I can't really look at it as an "album" but more of a compilation. At least when they released "Alkaline Trio" their old EPs were out of print. The HWM and OMA splits are still available as far as I know. I wish I could find the Hell Yes 7" somewhere though.

I think they should put their cover of "Wash Away" on there though, because that was great.
But, like I said in the thread on the album, I'm not getting it. No need to spend $15 on songs I already have. Now if I could just find "Buried" on Limewire... C'mon, SOMEBODY must have the Mercy Me Single...
#94
Its not just an album, theres a DVD with it containing all their music videos and the making of's, alongside live footage and other miscellaneous stuff. Theres also live tracks now as Bonus', i'm pleased they put Dethbed on there because that is such a great song - and brilliant live.

I don't think so, but no stores in my area sell vinyls, just CDs. I saw it on eBay for $5, but my parents won't buy sh*t off the internet. Maybe I could get a copy at their next concert...
#97
Hell Yes is actually fairly hard to get hold of, and there is no way it would be for sale at a merch booth.

GODDAMNIT!

I'll get a hold of it eventually, if its the last thing I do...
Is it even still in print? Cause I know all their early EPs aren't. Even though iTunes still sells "For Your Lungs Only"...which has always confused me...
#99
It's not technically in print, but you'll always see a copy or two floating around on ebay, so it's possible to get. Unless your parents won't buy **** online haha.

But I do have Demon's Away if you want that.

Isnt Demons Away from Matts solo work?

Its not on his solo album so it might be an alk3 song?

Iv got a demo of Weak Week

that would have been a pretty good song to put on their albums...
Blah.

Might have to get rid of it soon then, going to try and follow a few on ebay and see how much they go for (I'm in need of a bit of money right now).

Anyone see this kid playing radio on the piano yet? I love it. I spotted it a few days ago. He only messes once or twice, too.

What the hell does w00ties mean?

Anyway, I just ran into someone today that told my they really liked the song Mercy Me. Seems like a small fan, but still, it's nice to see someone who at least recognizes the Alkaline Trio.

^That is good to see. Sadly, at my school, except for me, only like 3 people have even heard of Alk3 and 1 of them actually listens to them. They are no where near popular at my school.

-stepco


Alkaline Trio seems to be gaining popularity at my school. I've gotten quite a few comments about my sweatshirt, though I can't say everyone actually listens to them. I think its b/c a lot of people saw them with MCR, so their all like "Hey, cool, I know that band." I could be wrong though...
#108
Yeah, the girl just mentioned it because I sewed and alkaline trio patch onto the back of my hoodie. It's like I wish they were more popular, but at the same time I don't. Because then everyone's like "Oh listen to this band I found they rock and they're, like, my favorite band!" And all you can think is no, you didn't 'find' them, and you're no where near to their biggest fan when you only have one of their CDs...

I dunno, I guess it's better for them to remain how they are.

^It's surprising that they haven't taken off. Good Mourning was a top 20 hit, I believe.
