    Whoa! :eek:

    I'm guessing a pre-recorded thing that you can access for two days - but it's FREE! Yeah, gonna figure this CreativeLive thing out, definitely. :yesway:

    No, as the name implies, its live. You can ask questions and stuff while it's streaming, and the hosts will try and get the guest lecturer to answer your question. I've watched a whole bunch of the creativelive courses, and they're super helpful.

    Regarding the multiple camera angle thing:

    Dream Theater and Muse (I think) have some app where you can do that on their shows where they had 360° cameras on a couple of places so you can literally control where you want to watch. I want that for this.

    I'm going to pull a "nah nah nah nana" and say I have heard Mordecai live. It was mindblowing as it was the first BTBAM song I heard.

    Sad to hear they've completely stopped playing pre-Colors stuff but at least I got to see them do Mordecai and an Alaska medley.

    Looking forward to getting my DVD. I've even asked my friend over to watch it together. He's a huge BTBAM fan as well, hopefully this will make up for the fact that he couldn't come with me when I went to see them.

    Damn you have a friend that likes BTBAM? You are very lucky all of my friends listen to pop/hip hop and I have no one to talk to about or listen to music with. :(

    To be fair, he's my girlfriend's brother and he was 12 when my girlfriend and I got together (I was 16) so I have had some years to feed him music and raise him to be the best friend I needed.

    I was lucky that he actually got into that stuff when I introduced him to it. Still going strong today but now he sometimes throws recommendations back.

    Does anyone know where to get a copy of the guide to Parallax II? It's the book with Tommy's explanation to the whole story. I can't seem to find it any where.

    Man that really bums me out if they are never going to play pre-alaska stuff live again. I'm pretty sure they said they might on special occasions or something.

    If we're bragging about shows now, I have to for btbam. I've been going to their shows for almost 10 years now, seen them close to 20 times. Closing out shows with Mordecai was their thing for a while, and it was always great. I remember them playing Selkies before Alaska came out and just being like holy fuck. I've seen Colors played front to back, as well as Parallax II.

    Basically, I could die tomorrow and be happy just from all my btbam experiences :lol:

    Does he like...have several copies or something? Would love one myself but I'm not about to bookblock Sebski.

    I for one am hoping that they´ve taken a different approach on this one. We already have two one song epic records and they´ve been great. Lets hope for some innovation!

    From that description, I'm kind of hoping that it's done almost like The Dear Hunter's Color Spectrum, having each song like a different take on the style. With all the different elements BTBAM incorporate into their music it would be cool to hear.

    Of course though, I'll probably be thrilled with whatever it ends up being.
