What I took away from it is how genuine and nice guys they are. Really classy.


quick question...why did they not want to talk about the easter egg? I mean the album is released and everyone knows about
it but they acted like it was not a topic up for discussion. Anybody know?

The easter egg is supposed to be a surprise at the end of the album.

TOTALLY Appreciate the effort that went into this, but I found the whole thing kind of lackluster.

What were you expecting? Ninja lessons from JMX? A parrot sitting on JLB's shoulder? Too see Manginis third arm? Petrucci to discuss proper hibernation preparation? Jordan to fuse a keyboard into a stone that only a true King could free?

I mean dude.....none of those guys HAD to do that. They could have recited the alphabet for an hour.....who cares. They took the time to participate and the Mods here put the effort into organizing it. I know you said you appreciate it.....but do you?

If we ever have another one, I'm putting my first question out there right now:

To JP:  So, really, how was the chicken?  And what side dishes do you prefer?

I think I speak for the entire forum when I say that this is obviously the most pressing question on all of our collective minds.

Well, I knew there would be at least one negative remark.

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

I loved the coincidence of how when "bizarro James" popped up one time, James says "Merry Christmas," and then takes a sip from his snowflake mug.

So, now that the chat is over and the big surprise... surprised, where can I find the one post by JP on this forum?  :hat

And is it somewhat likely that the DT bandmembers are gonna chime in or lurkmore in the future?

What were you expecting? Ninja lessons from JMX?

Personally no, but I was hoping for lessons on how to properly execute a Myung tackle. ;)

That was a very entertaining webcast.  I'm very glad the guys were willing to do it.

Yes, Scorp did get a question asked. Don't recall which one though.
