That was definitely a great time. Should definitely do another in the future!

Surprised Weymolith could keep a straight face - don't know if it was just me but I was cracking up.

WATCHING :caffeine:
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Awesome stuff, thanks for organising it! Glad one of my questions got answered, and it seemed to provoke plenty of discussion.

They seemed pretty evasive about the whole orchestral section of IT - perhaps they're taking a small orchestra out with them on tour?

Finally finished. Really awesome job from everyone who organized it! :clap:

I found it really interesting that they didn't like medleys at all.

Yea I laughed when I heard JP say "I hate medleys" I do agree with him though.

Thanks to everyone who organized this, truly awesome.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

That was as close as we'll get to becoming friends with the members of our favorite band.

Can we make this a semiweekly thing?

Awesome.

Great job to everyone involved!

Although I didn't get my questions answered, it felt like the guys were talking with me (all of us), which is a thousand times better.

Funny stuff and now time to listen to the new album which arrived a few hours ago!  :biggrin:

I just finished watching the entire thing. Great video! I wish I could have seen it live, but those pesky timezone differences are always a problem. :(

I'm glad MM digs the drumming for TDEN, as I think the drumming for that song is great. No surprise that JP was cooking animals. :metal

Great questions from everyone here. Thanks to everyone from DTF that made this happen! Hopefully we can do this for the next album too.

You couldn't see it, James had another Google window open, so every 10 minutes or so another James LaBrie would join the conversation and it would appear at the bottom window visible to us. The first time it happened JP said it looked like a Christmas ornament and I was calling it the backing vocalist.


Oh, that's funny.  :lol It was also great to see the guys cracking jokes during the chat, I just watched some of the funny bits again.  ;D

Wow, I'm reading the comments and catching the first bits of the video, and I have to say I think this was fantastic.  I am really glad this was able to happen.  I wish I could have been on when it was going live, but duty unfortunately called.  I also should tell all of you that I have heard from the band, and they also were really happy with it.  This was a great opportunity for fans and band to connect, and I am honored to have been part of it.


EDIT:  Wait...how did a question get submitted from me?  I never even sent in any questions.   :lol

I feel I bad I chuckled when the moderator (Weymolith?) said his name was Beardsly. Looking at him, I thought for a second that was just an alias.  :lol

Awesome of the band to do this. They've been taking a few hits from people for not being as communciative with the fans lately. I hope things like this put that to bed.

Besides their music, this is the best thing the band has done in a while. Felt very interactive and a lot of cool questions were asked and answered. Still some questions were left out, but I guess those will be answered some time in the future.

Hopefully this can be done again on an annual or every six-month basis
