My opinion.....yes.  Post it on MySpace.  It could get more fans involved, fresh ideas, fresh questions, etc.  We here on the Message Board have had lots of chances to ask questions of the band.  Who knows, maybe it will lead to more members on this board.  That would be a good thing.

I agree with Brew.  It would be great way to meet some other fans that haven't been to the Message Board.

Hurray 6pm for me, I can make it!   Cheesy  I was hoping that would be the case.  If you mean transcribe as in copy and paste the chat I just tested that and it won't let you highlight anything so copy and paste is out.  I think there is a way to save a chat session somehow on your computer but I haven't done much with chat so I could be mistaken.  I will look into it to see if I can help.  I suppose you could capture screens one at a time and go back and transcribe them.  It would be a lengthy process but could work.  Hopefully between a few of us we can figure it out.  See everyone tomorrow.   8)

We didn't see Pac-man, Pirate, or Iris!  I was there, but only in spirit since my yahoo login was being used!  I see everything went great!  Except for everyone "Getting Das Boot".  Well, at least I was good for something!

Yeah I was there the entire chat and enjoyed it.  Thanks to everyone involved in this.  I have screen captures from about 40min into the chat to the end as yahoo was glitchy and all of us were getting booted at one point or another.  Unfortunately I got booted before I started doing screen captures so the first 40min or less I don't have.  Hopefully someone else has it or will transcribe it.  Whoever is going to head up the transcribing lmk if I can do anything or if you would like the screencaptures I have.   8)

I think Bookies transcribed some of it, as I saw her getting "Das Boot" quite a number of times! Smiley

The chat was fun, and all of the guys (especially Brad) were too funny!  I knew Judy, myself, and oldfriend were there.   What were your chat names? 

Oh, and I didn't capture any of the chat; sorry!  I'm sure Judy will do a great job (once again) for us.  Can't believe there weren't a lot more fans chatting for over an hour with the guys.  Thanks again to the Romantics for being so gracious with us fans.

I am bummed I couldn't make it!! I was at band practice...we are a classic rock cover band and our set includes What I like, and Talkin in Your Sleep.  Sort of a fun thing we do on the side.

Any new revelations come out of the chat such as new tour, material etc??

This was certainly big fun. It was great to talk music and gear with the guys and Brad was a riot with his food comments. It really shouldn't be that hard to set this up once in a while should it? I know Wally is busy with a lot of the business end and the guys are writing all the time, but they do have to take a break once in a while and let it all hang out. Hopefully we can do this again soon. Thanks to all the people who showed up, especially the band.

Hi Everyone,
I totally missed the chat. Sad My work had me so busy that I didn't get to check in the Message board for the past few weeks. I wish someone had emailed the Yahoo group, then I would have gotten the notice!


By the way, we can add concert dates to the Yahoo Group's calendar as well, to remind those of us near enough to go to the concerts... Smiley

OK, I'm still holding out hope that at least some of the chat can be shared with the losers here on the message board who couldn't be there.  Anyone have anything?   Undecided

I was able to grab about the last 45min of the chat and gave it to bookies (if I remember correctly).  Had I known we would have the "boot" issue I would have done screen captures all along.  I am sure those of us that were there could sum it up with something like this;

new goodies to come out this year
upcoming shows
food
fan requests for songs at upcoming shows
food
instruments that everyone plays, including board members
(did I say food?  just ask Brad on this one  Wink )
9 videos produced over the years
general discussion over various topics (other bands, superbowl, etc)
conclusion and wrap up, including food

I may have missed something but that is my recollection   Cool

WAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO upset that I missed it!!!

Although, when it comes to deep dish pizza, Chicago cannot come close to Pizzapapalis in Detroit. Smiley

Hope you can post some of the chat logs on the Yahoo group!

It's a sad day when the person who started the group doesn't make the chat! (i.e. me!)

I have to agree concerning Pizza Papalis. Every time we visit the Science Center, Pizza Papalis is an automatic stop for dinner. Try the deep dish seafood combo sometime. It's stuffed with crab and shrimp. If you think seafood and pizza don't mix, this one will change your mind. Then, after pizza, you must go two doors down to the Astoria bakery for dessert. If you like sweets, you will lose your mind in this place! The enormous display of fresh pastries under glass will have you drooling. The aroma alone when you walk in will drive you nuts. They also make a mean espresso and some great flavored capuccino.

oldfriend,
Now THAT sounds like a great Idea.
Maybe The Romantics will headline a show at the Casino once they build their hotels.  We could all go to Pizzapapalis and then to Astoria!!! YUMMMMMM
