btw, I never got the pressing of the question of "why Chicago"...cuz the answer seemed kind of obvious...they were there. That where it happened to come together. Plus...it's Chicago. Smile

Oh yeah...it was the Lost Dog's list...not the 77's...but why no Roe? Derry and Terry...but no Mike CD...you got something against the Doc??? Wink

Yeah. It's actually been my experience the people who get along with Peter and figure "that's just him" have met him...the people who think he's a horrible gent, haven't. Smile It creates a different mental picture once you've listened to him and seen him talk. Smile

I am hoping to get the DVD before I move to L.A. actually. Then I think I have the complete Lo-Fi catalogue. but if you *ever* need help...like dragging Derri to a studio and tying him to a chair...and someone to crack the whip? I'm your man. Wink

To be fair to both of you, I only saw the responses on the 77's list...which included one really long one where you made that comment about fancying himself a critic.

Before that, I saw a couple quick responses that explained your take. Those first couple seemed non-defensive and good hearted...but since most of it happened on the DADL...I left that place because I grew tired of the whining(I know people want their CDs)...my initial point was that many of these people who seem so appalled that Peter for demanding what is in his mind a satisfactory answer slam on the Audoris and make them explain hold ups over and over, and don't cut them any slack.

And in fairness, some of your stuff seemed to indulge in more attack than the review quote. I am not trying to say you are a terrible guy. But I guess, sure...Peter can be frustrating...but there are some equally frustrating folks on the DADL who never get singled out by the group. Oh, that's right, because they are all interested in quality service-they aren't attacking the Audioris...they just want better service. Yet, because of being of a particular personality type(the guy can be like a freaking Vulcan), he's a bad guy. Maybe it's because I am used to such variety on the various lists I have subscribed to...maybe because I can be an burro online to...I tend to think the guy gets over villainized.

Peter has a far more stringent standard than I or many others do...that doesn't mean he's predisposed to not liking stuff. That's not even a fair assessment of the guy...because I see e-mails from him all the time that give raves about stuff. Over at the Northern boards there was a debate over J. Edward Keyes' review of Mike's hearts of care...he is pretty tough on it, and many people were upset that he didn't praise it. But he spends a good 500 words telling us about the brilliance of Mike knott and then lamenting what he fails are the failing points of the CD and recent part of Mike's career. But they only notice the negatives and ignored all the good things that were said.

In the end, I agree. You don't have to please him, or me, or that guy hiding in the corner. I am not trying to put the hate vibe on you here. Honest. As I said, I like what I have seen from Lo-Fi so far. I think when it's all done and put behind us...who cares. Hopefully, you guys are going to get a chance to try new things and experiment a bit more with this stuff. I certainly hope the DVD is a success. Honestly I do. I appreciate that an effort was made to have an interesting and creative product out there for we the consumer. Especially when I am sure you guys put it together on a limited budget(as I recall there was a criticism from Peter about the camera angle being fairly limited...but I have a feeling if you could have had 12 cameras going, you would have).

Peace?

Hey...fair is fair...I seem to recall *someone* accusing him of only "fancying himself as some sort of critic." Smile

I seem to recall an initial comment from Peter when he first received it of liking it...but then he started asking the questions...and it all blew up. I realize you got e-mails telling you he was a jerk...and that doesn't surprise me...but ironically, some of his greatest detractors are amazing jerks themselves. So, you should probably take that into account.

That said, I have liked the various products you have released so far(I have no opinion on the Dogs DVD-only seen bits and pieces so far). Especially Derri min-mini-mini-MINI Opus...when did he become the three minute song writer?! Smile

My favorite is I got the Choir to sign the CCM cover from when Wide Eyed Wonder was released. He looked at the picture, in which his head is down and eyes closed and said..."Geez...looks like I have narcolepsy!" He then wrote "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" above his head and signed his name.

Actually...what gets me is that the Townsends get a regular slapping around from people for wait times. Peter asked (frankly LEGIT) questions. Said he liked the CD(at least in the e-mails I saw). Jeffrey erupted with great defensiveness...Peter didn't say it was a horrible CD...he questioned certain choices. And people responded like he had declared the Dogs DVD a lesser work than Gigli.

In my opinion? If you only want praise? Don't put a project out for mass consumption. If you are going to put something out...be open to the criticism as well as the praise.

Of course our show was longer. They were clearly having more fun in Minnesota.

Wishful thinking... 08-06-2003 18:14 Forum: General Discussion


For some reason I suddenly thought what would be pretty cool is a retrospective DVD. Interviews with the band...their friends...old and new concert footage. Kind of a lengthy Behind the Music without the obnoxious melodrama added in(And it was at that point ________.... *quit the band*-que dramatic music). But just a look back. I wouldn't mind this for the 77's and the Choir...that would be excellent to. Aaaaahhhh...me and my pipe dreams.

I see people talking about doing something like this for the whole board. Though I doubt the chances it would be able to work, I always like the idea of a little party like the creators of Buffy the Vampire Slayer did for their message board fan base. They have had yearly parties where the people who frequent the message board actually go and hang out for a day with the creator, the writers, the stars...they would have music from bands the show has used on it's soundtrack and so on. I always thought it would be neat to have something similair with the various "classic" alternative ccm bands. A day with music and everyone hanging out. Again, I doubt it would be workable (maybe I am just a pessiment)...but it seemed like a lot of fun.

My dad and I had a great time. I wish we could have brought my mom, but chemo had her wore out. And I had not thought far enough in advance to work something out with the Commander. Smile

But my dad laughed hard. He thought Mike and Terry put on a great show. I would heartily agree. It's nice to connect some faces to the names. Food was good, cake was tastey and the music great. First concert I have been to since Cornerstone 2000. And what a show it was.

I got a much deserved dirty look from Mike after the show, but after that, all was well. It was all good. Great show, great venue. Well worth the price of admission. Thanks for all the hard work everyone put into making this come together.

I have lived in Minnesota all my life.

Woggy...I have found that of the four(now three) bands surrounding the Lost Dogs...DA/Terry has had the lowest female fan count. The Choir, I think has the highest, followed by the 77's. I've found that Terry/DA has a much smaller female fan base. I don't know if it's anything inherent to the music or lyrics. But I don't know many women who like DA.
