.I couldn't reply to the post about the E-cards because I don't have "special access" :cry: , so I'll just "reply" here. The E-card is cool and all, but whoever made it has given new live to the whole CDDB mistake. The E-card lists it as "Behind the Great Beyond." Noooo!!! I don't know how those things work, but you (I also don't know who "you" are) shold fix it. An entire generation of new Glass Hammer fans could end up being corrupted, or at least temporarily confused :lol:

Ah, but you see, we are the ones to have fallen prey! As Steve has revealed in a recent GH chat (which you were not there for, unfortunetely), he was the one who first mistakenly said "beyond the great beyond". The correct title IS "behind". Apparently, the fuzzy audio tricked you in the first place because Steve had said all along, "please return our next performance, Babb and Schendel's Behind the great beyond." Well, that's what he claims. I don't believe him on that, but whatever. ;)

"Day" is the modern spelling of the old old english "daie" which, translated, means "to die." It really has more of a connotation of being killed, rather than dying of natural causes, but you get the idea. So, instead of saying "the day I day," I really should have said "the day I die." I just assumed that all of you would be accomplished scholars of the elegant old old english.

Hey! That was an AWESOME ecard! Normally, the font Papyrus is used to an excess where it shouldn't be, but I think it was an excellent choice. And I liked the flying letters! Whee! (i had way too much fun with this!)

Sorry, Jon. For some reason I was confused (happens a lot). The E-card was great! :D

We always knew that Jon was multi-talented ... he was in the NEARfest choir too, and at the last minute no less.

(Still looking for an avatar to add that isn't too big ... tried to add a pic of the choir but it wasn't small enough :( )
