[risks jumping the gun...] I don't know if this is the right place to do it but I would like to extend a hand to sour29 (as well as his ninja taper posse) and suggest all the other kids consider the same.

First flags. Then pretzels. Now the Long Winters' nickname.

Yeah. It feels good to say.

And it'd be a great chant for drunk, shirtless frat boys after the band breaks unexpectedly huge.

Sour29, I feel like you've done nothing *but* make your point over and over. I get it. You've made your case and answered every objection. You've covered every angle thoroughly and shown yourself to be a knowledgeable and passionate fan. But, in fairness, are you hearing what *anyone else* is saying...

Long Winters Nicknames

Given my penchant for renaming bands , I wanted to collect the Long Winters nicknames we know of and openly ponder the idea of whether any one seems to be canonical. (This is what a person does when he's only the tiniest bit hungover from Mission of Burrma and has half an hour to kill before a clien...

This is great, you guys. It sounds like we're going to have a lot of swell material to work with. BTW, I hope this post helps clarify a little about what we're thinking about doing with the material we receive: http://www.thelongwinters.com/board/viewtopic.php?p=11514#11514 Thanks to everybody for t...

Maybe it would help to provide some context. I'm reluctant to go into a great deal of detail since it's a brand new idea. But if this helps calm the jangled nerves of the L-Dub posse, here we go: Imagine an area of the site not entirely unlike the tour diary area (but better updated [hint hint, JRo]...

thread split

The discussion on trading, recording formats and whatnot has been split off and placed over here:
http://www.thelongwinters.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=937

Let's keep using this thread for info on shows that people have and try to keep the debate/discussion over there.

PM with questions. Thx.

It's only your own sloth that's damning you. Well, you had me and you lost me. :) I really appreciate the time and effort you put into your responses (as well as your hard work recording) but I'm a little concerned that we're ultimately talking about two very different things for (at least) two fai...

Thanks, Unremarkable. This sounds terrific! Yeah, I do definitely want to learn more about the trading community, and I certainly don't wan't this little initiative to be disruptive, but my gut tends to go with Johnny Dialup on this one. If we can give folks--especially new fans--access to more of t...

Cool! Thanks for starting things off. Offering whole shows in MP3 would kill a Long Winters (lossless) trading community before it has a chance to flourish. Hmmm. I'm interested to know more. I'm new to this, so bear with me. When you say "lossless" you mean, like, shn or flac formats? Non-lossless ...

Call for Live Recordings

So, hey guys, here's an idea. There seems to be a lot of interest in locating and sharing audio and video tapes of live shows by the band. John and the boys think this is a swell idea and want to facilitate. If you have audio or video of the Long Winters or John performing live that you'd be willing...

Merlin once corralled Vonnegut into having breakfast with us. Best breakfast ever. I was at the height of my KV worship at the time, so that was pretty magical. Apart from his kindness and generosity--spending a long morning with a table full of undergrads--I was struck by his decency and, I dunno,...

SF 'Slice show? David and Erica? Bueller? Bueller?

At tha 'Slice's SF show last night, Maddie and I met two very nice tLW fans named David and Erica (David was wearing a tLW shirt: woo!). I think David said he's on the board here somewhere, but I can't find him. (Some omnipotent administrator you got, eh?) So David...raise your hand if you see this....

Holy crap. Photobucket rocks.

It took like 30 seconds to setup and I was posting a minute later.

Nice.
