Been busy polishing up the new HITS FanJournals. Hopefully will debut it really soon. It’s lookin’ good! (FAQ area being rebuilt, too)
@churrs27 Hmm? Dillo Day is held in Chicago. But I know TH wants to have an all-ages NYC show. It all depends on when they CAN.
@qwirksilver Dang. Many ppl managed to miss me that night. I was wearing a HITS shirt but I also didn’t move around a lot. Next time indeed!
Not that u didnt already know, but Tally Hall is now 100% confirmed for Dillo Day, which isnt directly open 2 the public http://bit.ly/4zqEN
Ah hah! After some issues, I was finally able to upload the entire Ann Arbor’s 107.1 appearance. Listen/DL it here: http://bit.ly/fA4LB
@KikiElise UNACCEPTABLE! hahahahahahaha Welcome back to the real world.
@LolaGeek Glad you’re enjoying them so much! :)
TRIVIA: Tell me the name of the Banana Man costumed fellow at the recent Blind Pig show for a bonus song DL code! (Round ends at 5pm EST)
@billyvau is writing up new tabs for some new songs. He should put them on one of the forums.
@KikiElise Thx for the feedback. There seems to be an issue with IE7+Vista+MIchigan. Firefox & Safari are OK. I’ll try to figure it out.
@HalfAsianNinja sure, that’d be cool :)
I just made it real easy to submit your stories to the HITS FanJournals! (Easy if you have a Google FC account…) http://bit.ly/IPmLR
My video of “&” was just posted on YouTube. More vids and pics to come throughout the day. Enjoy! http://bit.ly/KVZVR
Also, I apologize for whatever minor downtime people were experiencing this weekend with HITS. I’ve not heard when or why it happened.
Finally am sitting back down in front of my computer again. LOTS and LOTS to catch up on. Thanks for your patience and all the feedback.
On the bus back home. Will respond to tweets tonite or tomorrow. Thx to all who are following!
Show over!! Great. Got lots of good pics and some vids too. If ur here, say hi! I’m in a HITS shirt.
http://twitpic.com/5qwdu - Tally Hall at Mercury Lounge , NYC
@jdbridgman yessir. Come say hi after. HITS baseball shirt with blue sleeves.
Where is @causticsoda and others? I’m up front with big camera and HITS shirt.
http://twitpic.com/5qtuc - Joe setting his area. Mercury lounge. Nyc.
http://twitpic.com/5qtmk - Andrew preparing keys area.
http://twitpic.com/5qs4i - Malbec
http://twitpic.com/5qmsn - The Silent Years
@Lizipedia he sure did.
At hotel, leaving momentarily for Merc Lounge… Finally.
In Manhatten. MSG. Almost there!
@lazymuse21 thx! U too.
OK, If ur going to the Merc tonite make sure to say hi & tell me how much u love HITS. :) I’ll attempt to tweet/twitpic thruout the show too
@churrs27 Dang. You, too? I smell the need for an all-ages NYC show. Amirite?
@imcowman Panasonic called… they want their best salesman back. ;)
@nervyyb Sorry to hear that.
@causticsoda Yes! be sure to say hello!
@imcowman alright, finally! wooo! I will have my SLR for stills but not sure what else needs to be filmed.
…apparently no one else is going to The Mercury Lounge show tonight. C’MON PEOPLE, SPEAK UP! Don’t be shy.
@loonakun Really? Even with such beautiful pieces as the Suite from Pleasantville?
Alright humans, it’s Friday. @tallyhall is back in NYC. I AM GOING! Who else will be there???
@Darcy_Lynne Good question! I am checking.
@DilloDay Your FAQ is a little ambiguous. If the show is held outside, can non-NU students show up or do they have to have a special invite?
@percgirl11 it cant be considered official until its announced by the band or the venue. But its 8 days away and its 99% a sure thing, so…
Tally Hall is 99.99% playing Northwestern Univ. Dillo Day on 5/30 with NERD, The Decemberists, Estelle, and more! http://bit.ly/WaRcv
For whatever funky reason, no one can officially announce this but it’s a measly 8 days away, so u should know:
@DilloDay I know some people would START making plans if you’d only officially announce that Tally Hall is on the bill! :)
@milpreve Thanks for reading. I’m with ya on all points.
@Lizipedia See you there :)
@RachelSchain The delaware valley, whatwhat!
@brbpbj Nice! Prepare for euphoria. Do you have /need mp3s of the songs Dream, Mucka Blucka, and Just A Friend (studio recording)?
RT @_MR_F_: This just in, Boston show sold out! Should be a blast.
@percgirl11 Sorry, dear. Those are the only bonus songs they’re making available for now.
@thekillerbigmac Sweet! if you think of it, Twitpic during the show and I’ll RT it.
So who’s headed to the Tally Hall show at DC9 tonight? Also, first 5 ppl who request download codes (http://www.bit.ly/tallyb…) gets em!
@KikiElise Thanks, there’s some pretty compelling evidence, I think.
@KikiElise No problem. And nope - headed to NYC tomorrow and that’s gonna set me back enough as it is!
No one yet knows when new album will be released but we’ve a revised ETA: Jan 2010. Did u read my concept album article? http://bit.ly/ifwta
@paulhendrixson I’m going to write something up on this soon.
@paulhendrixson I’m thinking A Lady is a short, unique song. It also appears to be a prelude to the song called “&”.
@nervyyb Woahwoahwoah! I was only proposing a theory! But If I’m correct, I think the 3rd part should be kept secret until we hear the CD.
@paulhendrixson No, sir! Sorry for any confusion. They remain two totally different songs.
@cdigames I see A Lady opening the album and & to close it. OR, & in the middle and a 3RD PART (kept secret until release) to close it. Hmm!
Mystery sorta solved. This is the song “&” http://bit.ly/go6Wv which is almost def a Part 2 to “A Lady”. Ppl are thinking: Concept album?
All Of My Friends (No, seriously. It’s a bunch of the long-time fans/forumers chillin’ with Tally Hall) YKYATHW: http://twitpic.com/5l2zw
@shanalan Yes it is :)
Made some changes to the FanJournals for y’all. HITS Menu @ top, entries now show author, NEW T.H. widget in sidebar. http://bit.ly/IPmLR
@DilloDay So, uh…. care to make an official announcement about Tally Hall joining the lineup?
Big ups to all my Pitts HITS peeps headed to the Mr. Small’s show tonight! Have aMARVELOUS time and bring back something tasty!
@SmashThSilence naughty :)
(Unofficial) Dillo Day - Northwestern Univ. inhttp://groups.northwestern.edu/mayfest/
Hmm… Estelle, NERD, The Decembrists, and Tally Hall on one show? That’s a delicious lineup.
NEW in the HITS Audio Galleries! Acoustic sets from LiveDaily Sessions and last week’s radio interview: http://bit.ly/JPQPz
The HITS Channel has a playlist of the newest songs. Keep your eye on that, so u don’t have to waste time searching: http://bit.ly/16bPoQ
@percgirl11 I don’t think so either, except “&”.
@percgirl11 That’s cool but if you have video of the following songs many will be grateful: &, InTheStartOfOurCity, You Are, Mind Control
Attn: We are still looking/hoping for a video of the song “&” - Anyone out there have it? Please upload to YouTube if you do!
Good 2 see JustAFriend hasnt been totally retired from the Tally Hall set: http://bit.ly/3qYq6b (One of the more unique performances of it)
@abolters They do have that power, don’t they.
@JazzJazzJazz Have you any photos from concerts? Also, do you have the bonus songs I’ve been giving away? Dream, MuckaBlucka, & JustAFriend?
@JazzJazzJazz Hi! Much appreciated! For now, all that’s needed is new content from fans, the life-blood of HITS.
@MalbecTheBand Been hearing good things about your sets so far via Tally Hall’s fans. Looking forward to hearing you on Fridays show in NYC.
@Darcy_Lynne I know! It’s wacky, ain’t it? I enjoyed it thoroughly.
@Ludakit A valid concern, but after hearing some of the new, somewhat darker material plan’d for the next album, that shouldnt be a problem
Another NEW Tally Hall song from Chicago called “The Gap” - http://bit.ly/114J0l
@AvohkahTamer What was the reason you couldn’t go on Saturday again?
A new HITS News article has just been posted. Tally Hall’s Touring Tweets - http://bit.ly/vaKlG
@_Skiba Video will eventually be avail for when YouTube is not an option. For now, I keep everyone connected by fave’ing other ppls vids.
@Ludakit You should feel good about it. It’s great money and great promotion. Many are seeing it now finally, but it’s been out over a year.
@justincornwall How did the rest of it go?
@kthxraven Wow, hey thanks!
@eharcler Thanks but I hear nothing. I had this issue Friday too. Can’t figure out why though.
@cdigames I can listen to them…. just not the ones that Tally Hall are on, apparently. I can get all the stations around Philly tho.
Tally Hall may be on the radio here RIGHT NOW: http://www.grcmc.org/rad… - Once again, I can’t hear the stream though.
For the bonus songs (http://bit.ly/tallybonus… What was the 1st song Ross ever sang lead vox on with Tally Hall? (round ends at 11am EST)
RT for @_Skiba: David Anthony, where the heck you be? Met you at Tally Hall! All internet help would be appreciated!!
@_Skiba You’re still looking for him? I’ll retweet for you, too.
Hey Tally Hall fans: HITS provides a place for fans to share their concert pix and stories w/ each other in the Galleries & FanJournals!
After the Chi show, Rob was randomly punched by a dude who was soon after arrested, giving T.H. major street cred. http://twitpic.com/5d4ek
RT @Bamberella: Thank you, Tally Hall, for making me appreciate music on a completely new and wonderful level. No really. I mean it.
@robcantor Are you OK????
Victor, the Banana Man at The Blind Pig on Friday night: http://bit.ly/YLUSp
@qwirksilver Good girl! See you there.
@eviltwinn2 Wonderful! Feel free to twitpic through the show so I can share them with the rest of the Tally Hall fans.
@milpreve But that was YOUR job to capture it. You failed :( I’m sorry. Frown.
@loonakun Yeah I’ll be going to Mercury Lounge show. Definitely a good idea to buy tix in advance fo that show. it’s bound to sell out.
A new HITS News article has been posted: “Setlist for Blind Pig 5/15/09” http://bit.ly/TU5jo
@joshizzle Thanks, ya aint so bad yerself! And while I never visited that site, I’m sure our intentions and goals are of the same caliber.
@milpreve *cough*HITS GALLERIES*cough*FANJOURNALSMAYBEIFYOUREINTHEMOODTOTYPEITALLOUT*cough*
@joshizzle I’m a website… maintained by a fan named Coz… but FUELED by content and info from Tally Hall fans around the world. :)
@joshizzle No problem! I hope more come in soon.
The entire Blind Pig singing Greener: http://bit.ly/FWA9Z
From the Blind Pig tonight… Ross singing Everyday by Buddy Holly: http://bit.ly/QIFkm
@karik95 Yes! October 19th 2006 in Ames. I’m trying to locate the venue but I may not be able to. Cafe Diem, perhaps.
@aleixa That is a sad tweet. Hopefully some ppl will volunteer to tweet at the show to help you feel like you’re not missing out.
Who wants to tweet/twitpic from the venues? I think we could band together and make it a great time for those who can’t be at the shows!
A handful of ppl showed up to the BlindPig tonite without tix to find it’s sold out. This can happen in ur town, too. Buy ur tix in advance!
@jakeflood That’s horrible news… For you, of course. I wish I could help but it’s up to the venue & band at this point.
Tally Hall mini-tour goers: Reminder! You can share ur experience in the HITS FanJournals & share ur pix in the HITS Galleries! bit.ly/MuQTJ
@percgirl11 TWO shows. Lucky girl. Have a great time.
@percgirl11 No, I went out there once in ’06 for them. I’ll be attending the NYC show next week though.
@TickleMeShelmo Only during exciting Tally times :) Rest of the time it’s all news the band doesnt report on, give-a-ways, discussion, etc.
@thephantommilk ohhhh right, forgot about that. Thx.
@thephantommilk How is she mentioned?
@nervyyb I can’t hear much Beatles in Sacred Beast but Misery Fell is TOTALLY Beatle-spired.
HITS is VAST! So when u see a particularly good forum thread, FAQ, News, or FanJournal article, reach for the new… http://bit.ly/16gCSp
To those who were not too familiar with Sacred Beast and/or Misery Fell b4 they played on air yesterday, what did you think?
@milpreve You’re welcome. Have a great time tonight, lucky ducks! Please report back w/ details and/or post in the HITS FanJournals!
Here’s some audio from the 107.1 appearance: http://bit.ly/lpRFN
@mr_random I agree
@cdigames Thanks! I’ll only need up until they began Whole World & You. I got that song and everything after.
@cdigames Um…. I don’t think what I’m hearing is right, actually
@ohmonkeys Psst - Michigan is actually in EST!
@cdigames That did it! I went searching sources but came up empty handed. Thanks! I’m-a re-tweet that.
@fancydoilies Im at work. theyre all macs here, too
@mr_random I see no “basic player”
@cdigames whats the asx file? I cant find it.
Thx to all who’ve replied… I do have newest Silverlight and newest Flip4Mac. No luck yet.
I’m not hearing any audio from 107.1’s website. (Mac Firefox & Safari) Anyone else having issues? If you can hear it, plz tell what ur using
@TheFinnishLine I can totally understand that. As a singer myself, though, I enjoy watching other nobodies develop their talents.
Do Tally Hall fans watch American Idol? If so, what are your thoughts on last night’s results?
For a 3 bonus songs download code ( http://bit.ly/tallybonus ) answer me this: Who is Eddy Thatch? — Round ends at 1pm EST
Does Tally Hall have more tour dates to be announced??? Wayne State University (Detroit) says they’ll be welcoming T.H. on June 4th. HUH?!
Just rec’d a new batch of download codes from Atlantic for the Tally Hall Bonus Songs! Stay tuned for some more trivia to win them!
For anyone that may have gotten an error while viewing that special ringie-dingie easter egg on HITS, it’s working again.
@SmashThSilence Thx. Ur feedback is important. This is still a site which solely relies on the fans and that includes input on design.
@SmashThSilence Yes, the idea was to consolidate the feeds into 1 area. Google tools are attempts at encouraging interactivity. Not needed?
HITS has a revamped homepage. http://www.hiddeninthesa… - Do you think it works better or worse? Take a look & tweet me back!
@karik95 Thanks for the heads up. I keep a close eye on them, but those bots love to hit when I’m busy with life. It’s like they KNOW…..
@beckysioux FYI: Hiddeninthesand.com (HITS) first began posting Tally Hall tour dates on 4/8 :)
@KikiElise That sounds like a weird AM! Too bad about the lack of other songs but this is the closest to any legitimate release HMB has had.
A spyshot of HITS being worked on. The changes won’t be crazy, but they should help improve speed and efficiency. http://twitpic.com/4vn1e
Have any suggestions to make hiddeninthesand.com better? What things do you love / hate now? I’ve got time today to make some improvements.
@buzzy452 Hopefully u realize its only done 2 get ur attn & let u know I exist, since many fans dont know about HITS & its benefits for fans
@ben_folds I agree with some others. Definitely Spring & A Storm by Tally Hall.
@nervyyb I’m awaiting word back from Atlantic about getting another batch to give out. Stay tuned. Dun Dun DUNNNN. Or not, whatevs… ;)
