[MrKlaw] Mike sez: No MTV in Canada John.
[MONOflans] Matt: Don't think we'll do that song
[RobNg] This is creepy. The CD is playing and yet he's speaking * Whizard sighs.. He missed the vid.. :-
[etherboy] I missed it :(
[MrKlaw] I did see the .AVI clip though
[RobNg] Who played the devil
[Ruprecht] I've never even gotten to see a tmbg video
[etherboy] so did I :)
[MONOflans] Call MTV and tell 'em to play it more.
[SONICMOD] Banshee... please send your question to everyone...
[kismet] You are entirely too sweet-faced to sport Satanic facial hair.
[banshee] hi
[marlowe] hey, any truth to the rumor that you had Larry Davidson as a math
+teacher at LS, John?
[destin] The video was really good... looks like some $$ were spent. :)
[MrKlaw] mike sez: John I have the TMBG video compilation on laserdisc.
[Ruprecht] 1-800 Dial-Mtv
[RobNg] Was it supposed to be one of the ali fro mto serve mankind?
[SONICMOD] Banshee asks...just curious where monopugg the name orignated
+from..and if cleveland will be a date!
*** Signoff: Bonney ((signed off))
[kismet] unfair... Satanism has no flaws you don't posess, and a
+goatee does not signify such either.
[MONOflans] kismet: That facial hair was very uncomfortable, although the
+effect was pretty startling. They didn't recognize me in the
[kismet] Thanks, doll.
[MONOflans] video online session as the guy on the screen.
[etherboy] Good question, who played the devil?
[Istanbul] Flanz: Like, when will I get my Hello?
[Molly] OK, strange question: if you could meet anyone in the world, who
+would it be and what would you say?
[kismet] Did you have to use spirit gum to remove the adhesive?
[Ruprecht] call 1-800-DIAL-MTV weekdays at 5:30 EST
[Solipsist] Sorry to interrupt, but out of curiousity, will Mono Puff be
+coming down to Florida by any chance? Video was great by the way.
*** Bonney (BKe...@ has joined channel #lounge
[MONOflans] Banshee: The name comes from an experience I had at the John
+Coltrane Church in SF. There was a little girl
[eliza] Where is your favorite city to perform in? * gmoney slaps MrDent around a bit with a large trout
[destin] I don't think mtv will play a vid that says "Go, go, Satan go!" no
+matter how good it is.
[MONOflans] there with a single puff of hair in a perfect cicle on top of her
+head,and I thought it would be called a Mono Puff
[ninja-bob] didn't they already play it?
[eliza] What does the tour schedule look like? * MrDent gets bad Monty Python flashbacks
[destin] okay, they won't play it more than once. :)
[Matt] at least ask Monopuff questions sheez * gmoney tells MONOflans that molly is very attractive
[etherboy] Flans: when is the next newsletter coming out?
[MONOflans] Solipsist: TMBG within 6 mo.s Mono Puff some time next year.

[MrKlaw] What is the number, John?
[etherboy] Flans: we loved u in Charleston, SC please come again, forgive the
+moshers :)
[Istanbul] MOshers suck
[MrDent] Hate to do it, but I gotta baillllll John one quick question, what do
+your parents think?
[isaac] Nearly half the songs on Unsupervised are covers. When you're in
+MONO-MODE do you prefer performance to songwriting?
[lenny] could you please tell what's happening?
[MONOflans] kismet: The site is having the finishing touches put on it right
+now, and that along with the new Dial-A-Song should be up
[MONOflans] in about a month.
[kismet] Thanks for answering.
[gmoney] Monoflans: do you think that you'll be in houston anytime soon?
[lenny] molly? unstuck?
[eliza] Do you ever get the oppurtunity to go out while on tour? If so where/
[Seta] Will u be in Upstate NY soon?
[MONOflans] isaac: I didn't want to use up all my songs, because there is a
+new TMBG record coming out, and in general we don't do
[etherboy] Flans: Wot is your fiance's name?
[Ruprecht] John: has Superfreaksickle been killed? or will it still come out
+some time? and will it be a double album?
[kismet] How would I go about securing an appointment with you (and possibly
+Linnell) to do an interview?
[unstuck] MONOflans - you didn't get marlowe's question about your math
+teacher at LSHS...
[lenny] thank you..
[eliza] Yeah it's hard to good bands to come upstate!!
[MONOflans] a lot of covers in TMBG. Most of the covers on Mono Puff are
+generally unknown, so I thought that would be interesting
[MrKlaw] John, I know you've sent some email to, but just to
+let you know that there is another TMBG mailing list at

[MrKlaw] ok ] Flans: Still planning on playing pointfest in st. louis in Aug? And is Mono
+Puff an attempt to go more mainstream than TMBG?

+you fellows broke into "Older," or whatever it's called.

[Matt] ok
[destin] MONOflans: Is Norwood Cheek a real person, or a pseudonym?

+be when we're sick with the flu or something.

+the road to sell more music?

[MrKlaw] Rup's page is amazing

[MONOflans] irc: Tony is starting a studio in Brooklyn, and friends of mine
+who have worked there said it is so clean it is amazing
[Matt1] MonoFlans: what do you think of the Devil Went Down to Newport being
+on the Extreme GAmes on ESPN?
[Harlequin] I think MP is good small. MONOflans, I'm sure you enjoy the
+concerts where moshing is not a problem :)
[RobNg] Flans: Will you ever get any closer to NH the NY? You could go to
+great woods in boston or burlington in VT?
[MONOflans] Seta: right on. Make me look thin
[Seta] :))
[MrKlaw1] Almost yours rentalworld.
[Seta] okay cool :)
[MONOflans] RobNg: I hope so.
[destin] MONOflans: Why aren't TMBG and Mono Puff way more popular than, say,
+Hootie and the Blowfish?
[irc] Please do another show at Amherst College. You have lots of fans there.
[MrKlaw1] Drive Thru records
[Istanbul] Do like most the companies do and pay the stations to play your
[Ruprecht1] Flans, have you ever listened to Ween?
[kismet] You are lovely the way you are. Don't go changin'... (sorry)
[MrKlaw1] foodtropolis
[Harlequin] destin: because most people can't comprehend the brilliance that
+is TMBG.
[MrKlaw1] TMB Cinema
[Istanbul] Can I still order old Hello stuff, like the Live album?
[T-Set] Any more online concerts and/or QA sessions on your agenda?
[RobNg] Flans: I really think you should go to great woods. It's outside so
+the acoustics are great and it holds a ton of people
[MONOflans] destin: I think I have gained to much weight, and I swear too much
+while we are on commercial radio stations. Just one theory.

[MrKlaw1] Sports Hole

[irc] What is the song "They'll Need a Crane" about- is it derived from
+personal experiences
[MrKlaw1] Total Burger
[SONICMOD] Istanbul: Can I still order old Hello stuff, like the Live album?
[Harlequin] MONOflans: How about "MTV Unplugged"? :) : ):) :)
[MONOflans] irc: That is really one for Linnell
[MrKlaw1] sorry just went mad for a moment.
[kismet] I DID hear you employ the "f" word twice at Mercury Lounge back in
+March, young man.
[Seta] John, will you ever come to Upstate NY, like Ithaca?
[Tmbg345] why hello
[MONOflans] kismet: I have emotional problems
[Matt1] WE LOVE YOU FLANSY! ] Have you any intention of releasing aconcert-style version of Why Does The
+Sun Shine on anything other than Live in NY?

[Harlequin] Seta: They play Rochester a lot.
[etherboy] DEFINITELY
[MONOflans] MATT 1: all rigght
*** banshee (GC10...@ has joined channel #Lounge
[destin] MONOflans: I've never heard you on a commercial radio station. And
+I'm sure the Blues Traveler guy is far more immense than you could ever be.
[Seta] oooh Rochester :)
[Tmbg345] hello?
[Ruprecht1] are you pasting that whizard?
[eliza] You guys used the"F" word at a show???!!!
[kismet] Tell me all about it, doll. (Come on, you're great, and you know
[ninja-bob] is there a cover design for the "factory showroom" yet?
[irc] This is really funny, but one of my friends is really set on marrying
+Linnell. It's cute.
[Harlequin] Seta: you near Rochester? Great town. :)
[MONOflans] destin: But he can really play the harmonica ] Ruprecht: Yeah...
[MrKlaw1] i really liked the Scream as if you were in hell! middle of the live
+Hide Away Folk Family. Bring that back John.
[Seta] Harlequin: im near Binghamton, NY
[eliza] Seta do you live in Rochester?
[kismet] He just said he has emotional problems. Cut him some slack, Jack.
*** Signoff: Tmbg345 ((signed off))
[Harlequin] So is it "Factory Showroom" now? I really like that one.
[destin] MONOflans: but accordions and square guitars are MUCH more
[kismet] (I think I'm Sinatra here.)
[Harlequin] Eliza: Do you live in rochester?
[etherboy] I like that one too
[RobNg] Careless Santa didn't really happen did it?
[ninja-bob] people who can't play the harmonica really shouldn't. Ex: Alanis
[MONOflans] MrKlaw 1: That worked pretty well, but you can't do that stuff
[eliza] Seta: Im originally from Ithaca!
[MrKlaw1] thanks john i kmow
[MrKlaw1] know
[Istanbul] I hate Hootie. And Jewel. And Gin Blossems. And Alanis. And the
[MONOflans] RobNg: Yes
[Seta] reeally? :)
[Seta] cool
[MONOflans] Ithaca rocks
[Ruprecht1] I hate dishwalla
[eliza] yeeah. Not much to do there though!
[Seta] are u coming back to Ithaca, John?
[Matt1] What will this new TMBG tour be called MonoFlans?
[etherboy] Flans: Have you ever done drugs (besides caffine)?
[RobNg] The whole thing? Santa spoiled your bank robbing scheme?
[kismet] In at least a couple of early TMBG videos, you and Linnell seemed to
+have enjoyed showing closeups of your usually-chomping teeth. What gives,
[Harlequin] MONOFlans: Whataya think of Rochester? :) I saw you here once.
[Istanbul] Some people don't deserve to be famous. Ex: Alanis
[irc] Are you going to continue doing albums in the newer, harder, raw style,
+or are you going to go back to those more pop/ballad styles of Lincoln and
[Ruprecht1] How about Ann Arbor Detroit or Lansing?
[eliza] Have you been to Ithaca MonoPuff???

[MONOflans] I was really sick that day. I went to the hospital and my

[eliza] Its beautiful this time of year but hell in the cold months!!!
[destin] MONOflans: The cancelled show. Then I tried to see you at
+Zephyrfest,in New Orleans... cancelled too. I'm cursed.
[etherboy] Where exactly is "Hell's Kitchen"?
[kismet] Echinacea and goldenseal. And pulsatilla. They work wonders, I
+wouldn't steer you wrong.
[Harlequin] Flans: I think you (TMBG) should tour as "Folk Family" or somesuch
+once per tour. It'll give you the small concert experience, with mostly
+"devoted" fans. :) ] John: What did you think of Hotel Faux Pas, the band that opened for you at
+Mississippi nights in St. Louis last year? * etherboy is sad that flans was sick
[SONICMOD] Okay everyone... OPEN CHAT... Please be patient as John can only
+answer the questions that are in front of him!!
[Ruprecht1] if I told you the url of my website, would you look at later?
[MONOflans] kismet: well, sometimes it doesn't work, which was kinda the
+inspiration for "How can I SIng Like a Girl?"
*** JuliAnn (Jul...@ has joined channel #lounge
[irc] Did you make "Spiralling Shape" specifically for the Kids in the Hall
[eliza] Hey JuliAnn!!
[Tmbg345] Will your cover of "Taking Care of Business" be released anytime?
[etherboy] hi
[kismet] You do a fine job--no pubescent-Peter-Brady-like cracking to this
+gal's ears.
[MONOflans] Whizard: I din't get a chance to see them, because it was the only
+time I could eat dinner, which is almost always the case with openers
[Matt1] John: how long ago did your hit your head and become left handed?
[Tmbg345] hi
[ninja-bob] you should come play at the Ohio State fair. It would be a
+welcome change from all the country music.
[eliza] That movie was sooo funny!!!
[destin] MONOflans: I understand you were sick. It's okay. You just really
+have to come to FL soon. :)
[MrKlaw1] John, Klaw and I want to head a Toronto chapter of the TMBG fan
+club. How do you suggest we can go about this?? And will you support it?
[MONOflans] Tmbg345: No.
[Harlequin] Flans: What has inspired the decidedly more "rockin'" sound of
+TMBG's newest work? (I like it, BTW)
[Seta] John, u should have made Nixon's the One longer, it ROCKS!!!!
[RobNg] Were you saying anything on the cover of Smells like teen spirit?
[MONOflans] MrKlaw 1: Do it.
[Tmbg345] That was quite swank at the Fairfax fair!
[Harlequin] Seta: NTW is cool. My mother got a bit strange when she heard it.
[Seta] :)
[irc] What is "Put your Hand Inside the Puppet Head" about. You guys are
+really cool in the video for it.
[isaac] Mr. Flans: I've got 200' of 16mm film in my fridge. If I shot a music
+video for Nixon's the One, would you like a copy?
[kismet] "Nixon's the One" almost sounds like a Linnell-penned song. Do you
[RobNg] It was on dial a song first
[eliza] Yeah!!
[MONOflans] Seta: I had a hard time figuring out what else to say. It is
+really about the slogan "Nixon's the One" which always seems creepy in it's
+double edged meaning.
[irc] "She's An Angel" is a beautiful song. Where did you get the inspiration
+for that?
[Seta] oooh cool :)
[Harlequin] Flans: Did you go see the movie "NIXON"? :)
[MrKlaw1] I'm not joking, John. How can we coordinate with the New York info
[kismet] You look S-E-X-X-Y when you pour that coffee into that cup and
+saucer--so cavalier, so coy.
[Matt1] Flans: what did you think of the NPR All things considered show?
[RobNg] Deja vu! I heard something just like that on the ATC interview john!
[eliza] Maybe someone close to you??
[Istanbul] Flans: YOU ARE SO COOL!
[Seta] John are u going to host 120 again?
[etherboy] Yeah, Flans: Can I get your permission to use your music inany
+future fim projex :)
[Tmbg345] Will Killer Kahn be your new bassist? He rocks'!
[MONOflans] kismet: I would have to say, Linnell is my biggest influence, so
+if it sounds that way it is no suprize.
[RobNg] And then you toss it on the ground

+(Now THERE'S some crackin' vocal work!)

[eliza] So what are your plans to do until you tour in Sept?
[irc] What would you guys play if you were on the Conan O'Brien Show?
[MONOflans] PopinFrsh: Yes, although only insofar as it seemed like a good
+name for a band. The movie is not so great
[destin] MONOflans: is Mono Puff slated for any live TV appearances?
[RobNg] The movie is terrible
[MONOflans] eliza: I'm going out west to rest and gamble
[eliza] What about Dave Letterman?
[kismet] Sorry to ask you about Linnell, but do you know if he has plans to
+continue with his "State Songs"?
[etherboy] I hear a lot of ppl enjot the TMBG as well :)
[Matt1] I loved the movie!

[Tmbg345] Will They Might Be Frank ever go around again?
[eliza] Las Vegas??!!
[etherboy] the TMBG movie that is :)
[kismet] Have you guys been on David Letterman's new incarnation?
[Matt1] MonoFlans: Any future Monopuff singles coming off this album??
[RobNg] I'm listning to unsupervised for the fourth time in a row now
[eliza] Las Vegas rocks!!
[Matt1] it was They Might be Black (not Frank)
[ninja-bob] why is unsupervised so short?? ] MONOFlans: Any coincidence that Guitar Was the Case sounds rather like Hall
+of Heads without words?
[Tmbg345] How did you get to work with Elina Lowensohn?
[Ruprecht1] I have unsupervised in with 4 other discs...
[Harlequin] I love the lyrics to CSanta. One of the few songs that made me
+laugh when I first heard it. I mean, "fell on my arm and broke it" is just
+such a great line!
[Seta] Guitar Was the Case roxx :)
[kismet] I think it sounds like the theme to "The Munsters." (No offense
[Tmbg345] Oh, and thanks for the signed SPIN cd, i was a lucky winner!
[MONOflans] Seta: Well, the second verse was written as a crazy "alternate" to
+the first, which is kind of a cheap device that i use quite often, but it
+yields good results.
[etherboy] Yes Flans: Seta's Q : Wot inspired Careless?
[etherboy] ooops
[ninja-bob] I'm listening to John Henry cause it doesn't end after just 33
[MONOflans] kismet: Well, that and Hall of Heads (hangs head in shame)
[RobNg] whoa kismet your right. it does sound like the munsters
[MONOflans] ninja-bob: Sorry.
[ninja-bob] its okay
[eliza] what about me??
[Tmbg345] Flans, whats your favorite TMBG song?
[etherboy] How long is the new album?
[eliza] ????
[ninja-bob] didn't he say 45 min? ] MONOFlans: Didn't say it was bad that Guitar was the case sounds like Hall
+of Heads.. I quite like it... :-]
[Harlequin] MONOflans: Only the first section of the riff sounds like HOH.
[MONOflans] etherboy: Well, I just wanted to write a song about a different
+kind of Santa.
*** Signoff: JuliAnn ((signed off))
[MrKlaw1] Mike sez: I'm thinking that the cool special thing I ought to get,
+being Canadian, and therefore deprived of live Mono Puff, is the signed
+libretto that Flans made. Hmm maybe I dost protest too much...
[destin] MONOflans: How do you feel about the green-tinted jewel cases
+Rykodisc CD's come in? Was that the reason you chose the label?
[kismet] Oh, come on. I really meant no offense. It's great. (I won't even
+mention that when I was a student at ASU in Tempe, I saw the Gin Blossoms,
+then a local band, play "The Munsters" theme all the time.) Now I'm hanging
+my head in shame!
[Seta] John, who is Nancy Lynn Howell? from Dont' i have The right
[irc] In addition to the album coming out this fall are you coming out with
+another in '97?
[Seta] The green jewel cases area awesome
[Seta] are
[MONOflans] destin: I din't dig it at first, because I worried it would make
+the cover look dim
[ninja-bob] green tinted cd cases are pretty neat-o/cool/rockin'
[MrKlaw1] it barely looks green
[Ruprecht1] do you have plans for any more christmas songs?
[kismet] John, what book are you reading these days?
[irc] Rykodisc is a good label, they have Bob Mould.
[eliza] Are you flying to LAS VEGAS? or driving because either way I have a
+good friend who would be interested in going!!!
[MONOflans] But now I think it's fine, because there is so much dust in all
+plastic they look about equally dim
[ninja-bob] I didn't even notice they were green until i saw it in sunlight ] John: What do you think about Wierd Al's "Everything You Know is Wrong?"
[MONOflans] Rykodisk is very cool
[eliza] She'e really crazy tooo!!!
[Seta] just the edges look green
[kismet] Aside from her Hello duties, what has Marjorie Gallen done? Is she a
[destin] It's sort of a subliminal color influence... makes everything all
[Ruprecht1] I saw the label that said te tint was copyrighted...
[Tmbg345] Ryco also has The RESIDENTS
[Tmbg345] !!!
[ninja-bob] how can they copyright green tint, anyway?
[Harlequin] Hey, John, did you write DIHTW? I didn't see an alternate writing
+credit on the liner, but I've heard "Connie Champagne" sing it (on a tape
[Seta] John, you look exactly almost like my cousin's husband :)
[kismet] I found that odd, too.
[etherboy] Rykodisc has the Residents and Flansburgh, wot more could they
+want! B-)
[Ruprecht1] trademark
[irc] Yeah, I wanted to know about that too. The Weird Al song is very TMBG
[MONOflans] Ruprect: I don't really think of Careless Santa as a Christmas
+song especially, because it's not really about Christmas joy. It just kinda
+takes place with Santa as a character
[kismet] What else has Marjorie Gallen done? Is she a musician, or a
+producer, or what?
[isaac] MONOFlans: Do you relish the return to bare-bones touring that
+MonoPuff has brought to your life, or do you prefer the gluttonous excess of
+a big tour bus and a semi of pyrotechnics?
[Tmbg345] How is it a true story?
[eliza] Do you normally write the lyrics or is it a collaboration between
+everyone in the band?
[Ruprecht1] oh
[MONOflans] Harliquin: DIHTRTBL is my composition.
[RobNg] What is the rest of TMBG doing now?
[kismet] John, you have a Santa thing, don't you?
[ninja-bob] it'd be cool if there was a christmas compilation album with all
+those sort of xmas songs.
[PopinFrsh] Why did you decide to create Mono Puff?
[Matt1] is the devil really david hasslehoff?
[MrKlaw1] Mike sez: What do you think of King Missile, John? I need to know.
[Tmbg345] What you think of the AOL chat?? Pretty lame questions if you ask
[kismet] No, Robert Goulet is the devil, and Ferrante and Teicher are his
[ninja-bob] i always thought that the devil was my 9th grade gym teacher.
[Tmbg345] TMBG should cover Santa Dog
[eliza] You know in Germany everyone LOVES DAVID HASSELHOFF!!!
[Ruprecht1] the aol chat was bad
[Harlequin] MONOflans: I'm still waiting for my Power of Dial-A-Song tape so I
+can hear *you* sing it. (DIHTR).
[Ruprecht1] this is much better ] John: What do you think of Wierd Al's TMBGish song, "Everything You Know Is
[MONOflans] isaac: well that's a omplicated question. The Mono Puff tour was a
+little bumpy, but was pretty easy-breazy. Also TMBG tours aren't exactly a
+stroll in the park when it comes to logistics and travel, etc.
[MONOflans] irc: Thanks
[kismet] What's with all the teeth-gnashing in a couple of early TMBG videos?
+Both of you do it.
[Seta] John, i called Dial-A-Song, and i think its an awesome idea :)
[Tmbg345] Is your look in the MP video based on the looks of the guitarist
+from Cheap Trick??
[banshee1] MONOflans: when traveling in can always crash at my
+place if needed!
[etherboy] No it must be ZZ top :)
[kismet] How were you guys able to clear out that area around the fountain in
+Central Park to shoot the "They'll Need a Crane" video?
[eliza] So john what about Las Vegas??!!
[Harlequin] What happened to DAS? It was down for about a week...
[MrKlaw1] Mike sez: I think the best TMBG videos were directed by Adam
+Bernstein. Where has he gone?
[Tmbg345] "It's Pat" was pretty good.
[MrKlaw1] and where do you have Bill Krauss tied up?
[MONOflans] MrKlaw 1: I've only hear one song, and it was pretty "blue." Not
+really my bag, but I imagine they have other things to offer. That guy is
+some kind of spoken word - poet dude I hear
[Ruprecht1] Klaw will never get the Keyboard back
[kismet] Who is the keyboardist in "They'll Need a Crane"? He looks
+familiar--an actor, maybe?
[etherboy] Adam Bernstien directed a Pere Ubu video too
[Seta] John you are left handed ? me too :)))
[MrKlaw1] thanks should try to hear more King Missile, it is not
+all blue.
[kismet] Have the Clamdiggers released an album or EP? I haven't been able to
+find their stuff anywhere here in NYC.
[RobNg] Like detatchable penis?
[Ruprecht1] and some ween and some Wally Pleasant too
[MONOflans] MrKlaw 1: I saw Bill at the Mono Puff show, and he seemed happy
+and tanned as usual. He is doing voice over and acting in SF, and has a
+really interesting screen play he was telling me about
[Harlequin] The King Missile guy does spoken-poetry now. The band broke up,
[irc] I hope you don't mind that I call my radio show at school, "Sapphire
+Bullets of Pure Love."
[isaac] Wally Pleasant! Someone else who's heard of Wally Pleasant! Ruprecht,
+you have taste!
[MrKlaw1] what is SF John??
[kismet] Who is Bill?
[Tmbg345] Have you quit using AOL?
[Matt1] SF= San Fran?
[MrKlaw1] Bill is a god...
[MONOflans] kismet: Nothing I know of, just a tape. I think they are no
[eliza] LAS VEGAS???? JOHN???!!!
[MONOflans] MrKlaw 1: San Fran man
[Ruprecht1] where are you isaac?
[MrKlaw1] thankss
[kismet] Thanks, John. Is "Devil" an old song, then?
[RobNg] I'm not getting sick of you or anything, but how long qare you here?
[MONOflans] irc: Most cool
[eliza] Issac is resting!
[Matt1] Flans: have you begun thinking about Hello '97 stuff?
[MONOflans] Questions??? ] Flans: You're great.. Thanks for doing this.. I gotta go though... :-
[Seta] John, how come they don't sell Mono Puff Cd's where i live? i won mine
+from Rykodisc :) :)
[isaac] Isaac never sleeps.
[Seta] me either isaac :) ] Flans: Looking forward to Pointfest... :-]
[kismet] John, did you guys enjoy doing the Brooklyn show in Prospect Park
+last summer? Why aren't you doing another one this year?
[Tmbg345] When is the Candy Butchers HELLO disc due out?
[MrKlaw1] Can I direct a video for you John? I have a film degree.longer

[MONOflans] Matt 1: not really. W have to sort out the rest of the year. We're
+once again about to miss a bunch of deadlines
[ninja-bob] monoflans: what's up with the sticker with the devil ep?
[Harlequin] Flans: Are you getting a lot of freedom with Elektra now? I hear
+they've canceled/delayed SF. Do you get a lot of say in what you do and
+release, or do they tell you what to do?
