The Flaming Lips
« on: April 04, 2010, 03:32:08 PM »

I'm surprised at myself for not already starting a thread on them.
So you all know I friggin' love this band. Band members are Wayne Coyne (frontman), Steven Drozd (multi-instumentalist), Michael Ivins (bassist), and Kliph Scurlock (drummer).

They've been around since 1983, and they have 13 albums (including their cover of Dark Side of the Moon).
Personally, my favorite albums of theirs are Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots and Clouds Taste Metallic, but I do love all of them. :)

I've met Wayne and Kliph before. Wayne twice, Kliph twice/three times. I don't know if you count when he waves to you and you just say "hey Kliph!" as meeting him. But they're both really sweet. My mom has met all of them, and she runs Steven Drozd's website.

I spent almost 24 hours of the three days I was in Oklahoma at the convention center where the '09/'10 New Years Eve show was being held, about 45 minutes to an hour of that time was sitting. My mom, some friends (old and new), the Flaming Lips crew, and myself blew up about 4000 balloons in most of that time, and the rest was spent watching soundcheck and during that actual concert. It was great getting to help out and hanging out with the band was spectacular. Some of the most memorable times of my life. :)

So, how many of you like The Flaming Lips? Favorite albums? Show reviews? Please share. :)
I'll be back to post pictures of the band later.

Their shows are definitely unforgettable ;)

I remember when I was at the NYE show, I stood up so much and I wasn't wearing shoes because my shoes hurt my feet. I walked around for about 11 hours on concrete floors without shoes and then stood for 6 hours without them. As soon as Stardeath and the Lips go on, the pain usually goes away, but it was so bad that by the time they were doing Dark Side of the Moon, I was in the worst pain.

Flaming Lips concerts have made me good at standing up for hours and waiting, haha.

Some of my photos

One of the best concert experiences of my life! So much so that I became even more obsessed with them and when I went to L.A. shortly after I got their V.O.I.D. dvd!

Shianne I share your obsession with them! And it's so easy to feed my obsession too because Wayne lives in OKC, my hometown.

\
This was last years annual Ghouls Gone Wild Halloween parade in OKC. Every year Wayne does a March of the 1000 flaming skeletons thing for the parade. I tried to sign up to be a skeleton but was too late :'( Maybe next year...

\
That's me, from that point me and my friend were chasing him through the parade...

</
...and we creepily got pretty close  ;D



</
Before the New years eve show 09/10

</

</
From this angle Wayne looks like he has man boobs :D

</
The W.A.N.D.

</

</

</
If you could get a chance to see them live please do!! They're just one of a kind. One of the best nights of my life!

Those are really good pictures! I really wanna do the March of 1000 Skeletons, but I think you have to be 18, which I am not. :(

It's awesome that you're from OKC. I love it there, I'm going there every year from now on the NYE.
I wanna meet up with you next time, if you go again. :)

I'll be there next year,  I've gone every year. We'll have to meet up too. You're one of the first people I've heard  say it's a great city, usually people come here and pass it off as crap. It's actually really cool if you look hard enough. Especially around where Wayne lives in the arts district  :)

Ahh yes, I have a strong strong strong love for the Lips.
Clouds is definitely one of my favorite albums. It's probably between that and Yoshimi, because Yoshimi's so chill and Clouds is all rockin' out. :D

Clouds is definitely one of my favorite albums. It's probably between that and Yoshimi, because Yoshimi's so chill and Clouds is all rockin' out. :D

ah yes, i just recently got yoshimi on vinyl. i have an intensely amazing time listening to it in my dorm room through surround sound. its surreal. im going on an adventure today to either get the soft bulletin, or congratulations on vinyl. i would have already got congratulations but ive been trying to find out if there is any possible way to still get a lithograph since i didnt have time to pre-order. you dont understand how much it has been bothering me lately that i didnt pre-order in time... :'(

One time I was driving at night listening to Yoshimi, it was awesome ;D

yeah, last week i was driving back to school (1 and a half hour drive) and listening to congratulations and almost couldnt function enough to drive it was so trippy and amazing! :D

Congratulations is definitely gonna be the soundtrack to my summer :D

i have never heard words so true to myself! it will be mine too! heck, its all ive been listening to lately other than my other regulars on vinyl. :)

I've been listening to Congratulations a lot, and a lot of Vampire Weekend.
Earlier when I was in the car I was blasting Flash Delirium ;D

There's gonna be Record Day this weekend and MGMT and the Lips released vinyls just for Record Day. I'm hoping to go out and get both, even though I sadly don't have a record player.
I'm gonna try to get Andrew to sign it when I see him in two months :D

Hey everyone, I loves me some Flaming Lips.  But I'm a n00b. I only know of Embryonic and The Soft Bulletin. I love both, but I'm a fan of the darkness of Embryonic...can anyone recommend which album I should pick up next?

Also, I got to see them at Treasure Island last year. It was pretty amazing, but it would have been a lot better if the weather was nicer. It was cold and windy, so the crowd was pretty frozen and all the confetti and balloons kept blowing away. I'd love to see them in an arena. The pics you guys have look awesome!  :D

hmmm, try "at war with the mystics" and "yoshimi battles the pink robots". listen to them a few times the whole way through and let us know what you think, and we can tell you a few of their older albums you should check out. :)

Hey! :)
If you're just becoming a fan, then "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" and "At War With the Mystics" would be the way to go. It's hard to get into the old Lips stuff if you're not a huge fan, but maybe "Clouds Taste Metallic" would be good, but it's very different because it's a guitar based album and now they're a lot about electric sounds.
I hope you get to see them again at some point! It is kinda hard to put a Lips show on outdoors sometimes, because weather can very easily mess up the way their equipment it set up.

I hope I helped you with recommendations. :D

I was in the stands and the balloons filled with confetti kept floating over to us, breaking and raining confetti on us. Didn't expect to get any confetti so far from the stage!

They're all very good! ;D
I was at the New Years Eve show and I didn't wear my shoes all day (because they hurt my feet), and I ended up getting a lot of confetti in my shoes, and they were on the ground in their sides! I don't know how it got in there, haha, the confetti and balloons are so fun. :D

They use so much confetti. It gets everywhere.  :D
I haven't seen them at a proper inside headlining show since New Years Eve Eve in San Francisco. I guess it was 2007. There was a lot of confetti on the floor when that show ended!

Im ashamed to say I haven't really delve into their music as I should. *ducks*

Although, one of my favorite songs to play on the ukulele is Yoshimi. Also, Iron&Wine does a really great cover of Waiting for Superman.

They're really great musicians and their live performances look just spectacular! I hope Im able to see them one day. The skeleton march looks like it would be so much fun!

Well two older albums that I can recommend (if you're more of an Embryonic fan) would be Clouds Taste Metallic and the Soft Bulletin. Some tracks that could get you started are:

Race For the Prize (Soft Bulletin)
Buggin' (Soft Bulletin)
What is the Light? (Soft Bulletin)
The Gash (Soft Bulletin)
Placebo Headwound (Clouds Taste Metallic)
Brainville (Clods Taste Metallic)
Guy Who Got a Headache and Accidentally Saves the World (Clouds Taste Metallic)
Bad Days (Clouds Taste Metallic)

Those two albums seem the most similar to Embryonic, in my opinion. I hope those suggestions help! :)

I love The Flaming Lips, they are just incredible and awesome!

My favourite album is "Yoshimi battles the Pink Robots"
"Do you realize" makes me cry, and "Yoshimi battles the Pink Robots" makes me dance.
Their songs are just so moving.


Especially their concert in Oklahoma City "U.F.O 's at the zoo" was AWESOME!

(I haven't seen them live, but anyway..  :)  ..)

Then again, given the track record of their latest vids, it's probably gonna involve some half naked chick doing something strange. While bound with duct tape.

my favorites are Evil, Sagittarius Silver Announcement, and The Ego's Last Stand. and Silver Trembling Hands and Watching the Planets, and all of them because it's such a good fucking record

when i was watching it i nearly had one eye closed, it was freaky. on this album wayne has been doing weird things with the videos. in watching the planets i saw his penis and in the last video we see a girl getting her finger/toe blood everywhere. it's just getting kind of odd, but not in a way that it's bad.

Goddamn, they hit all the right spots with me. They started with Worm Mountain (No MGMT :( ), then did Silver Trembling Hands, if I remember correctly. Had some pretty awesome participation by the audience in I Can Be a Frog and some pretty fucking awesome images in the screen for Sparrow Looks Up at the Machine and Pompeii am Götterdämmerung. They also played The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song and The W.A.N.D. with Wayne babbling about how George Bush was a bad president. They also played See the Leaves, In the Morning of the Magicians, She Don't Use Jelly, Yoshimi, and finished with Do You Realize. All in all, a pretty amazing concert. Best concert I've been to by far, it was a very visual experience, very awesome.

yay! that sounds amazing, i'm glad you had fun! haha of course wayne did his speech. sounds like a good setlist, i love In the Morning of the Magicians live. it's just amazing.
but they didn't play Vein of Stars? they played that the last two times i saw them. but when i saw them we didn't get I Can Be a Frog so i guess that's replaced it.

haha sorry for going on and on, but i'm glad you had a good time. did wayne make kliph do weird impressions for I Can Be a Frog? :D

Yes he did! It was hilarious.

I might be missing a song or two, it was all so hectic. The stage was like 40 feet from the train tracks, and they put mics by the tracks in case it passed by, and it did right after they finished one of the songs, so Wayne told us all how awesome the sound of a train is (and it was awesome). Wayne said, "Man, I wish we sounded like that" and Steven said "I think we do, sometimes."

ok guys, i was just about to post this on tumblr but it's not working for me right now...i will post it on there tomorrow but i didn't want to type it all out again (i'm so tired haha) so here's what i said:

last night was so incredible and surreal and beautiful (': wayne waved at me and walked over me in his giant bubble and held my hand for like, two seconds and i met steven and kliph but i didn't get a picture with kliph because my camera battery died, what a little devil. i asked him if he remembered shianne (because she knows them) and he did, which made me really happy :''') i basically started crying during do you realize because i was so overwhelmed and the confetti was blowing everywhere and everyone was dancing and i just couldn't even breathe. wayne said that they took a chance and put all of their equipment right at the front of the stage even though it rains every freaking day in vancouver and was supposed to pour tonight...he said that they decided to put everything out anyways, and if it started to rain they would just move it all to the back of the stage. it didn't rain once and at the end of the show he said that he knew it wouldn't rain all along, that he had a feeling it wouldn't and it didn't. don't get me wrong, the rain would have been awesome as well but i told my mum just before we left that i had the same feeling, that it wasn't going to rain. i think that's really cool, i know it probably isn't but IT IS TO ME. i had so much fun it's not even normal, wow. a guy elbowed me in the face though so now i am in so much pain because my cheek/tooth etc whatever you want to call it was in pain to begin with, but it's ok...i am so happy (':


 ;D ;D ;D

i will post pictures tomorrow ;) 8)

I hope you realize how fucking jealous I am of this!

I was listening to Embryonic for the first time today and I was thinking about how awesome FL shows are. This video also reminded me of the Soft Bulletin thing, they're doing it in it's entirety in London too as part of this ATP concert series and I want to go even though I only know 'Race For The Prize' from the album ~lol~ That's pretty lame but Flaming Lips shows are so much fun anyway that I bet a bunch of people would go just for the fun of it even if they didn't listen to the band a lot.
BUT THEY'RE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO LAME 'KIDS' FANS OK.
Anyway...

Are you going to help out with the balloons and stuff again this year?

is that real? that's amazing!!! my best friend bought me the Embryonic vinyl that came with a bonus CD too (as a late Christmas gift)! I got so excited when I opened it! It's one of my favorite albums!!!! PLUS, the cover as a vinyl looks absolutely phenomenal! I still haven't gotten around to most of their discography though :'[
I have The Dark Side Of the Moon, Embryonic, The Soft Bulletin & Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots
does anyone have albums recommended in order?

&I have already told you how happy I was for you shianne in the other thread but really that's amazing! I really want to try to go next year! (if they do one again)

haha aww, you're too sweet :D

feather, yeah i heard about that! i'm so excited!

gulsah, they should be doing it again next year, it's be sooo awesome is you could come! i'm not completely sure if i'm going next year, hopefully i am.
and also, their album that's probably my favorite is clouds taste metallic, but that was before their music got more...electronic-ish, i guess you could say. so it's pretty different, but i love it :)

I can not believe I never got into their other music (as I mentioned, I am going to, though)
I ran into their cover of "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" and it gave me chills! ABSOLUTELY fantastic!!

OMG I JUST SAW THIS SPONGEBOB TALK

I remember, omg, I so remember when the movie came out and I had my dad download the soundtrack (stfu it was my thing lol) and I was hearing all these lovely songs and then OMFG, THE FLAMING LIPS.

"Patrick, you see I'm growing a moustache, though you know I must ask you, does it really make me look like a maaan?"

I REMEMBER THIS OH SO WELL

And the rest of the soundtrack.

I shall end my Spongebob orgasm here.

I watched the Coachella documentary on Palladia last night. We already have it on DVD but it was just on so we were like "whatever watch it" and Wayne was all in his space bubble and then they showed him talking and it was just all around awesome. I couldn't help but think of you Shianne lol!

I was watching that too! It's funny because my mom was making fun of a lot of bands and when they came on she was like "I want to go in that bubble!!" haha! I guess the way she said it isn't as cute in text online  :D

Well my parents actually went to Coachella a few years ago, it wasn't that one in the doc (I don't think... there were a few years in that doc so I really don't know maybe it was that one xD) and they actually got to lift Wayne up in that bubble, I was so jealous.

i think that you should start off with "yoshimi battles the pink robots" and "the soft bulletin." those are the best for ~getting to know~ their stuff :)

i don't think there is. usually stardeath would play with them but since it's a soft bulletin show, i don't think so, because it's like two shows. (they do a regular set then all of the soft bulletin)
__

so i made a utopian society named psychic city in school and i made wayne the president. i told him. i got this in response. i'm sort of freaking out right now.


he might actually use it. i would have named a flaming lips song. HOLY SHIT.

So I brought it up and was like "this band, they're.. huge but you probably haven't heard of them" xD but they all HAD heard of the lips! didn't know them well but heard of them at the least haha so I told them all that had happened and they were all

"That is REALLY cool"
"I wish something like that would happen to me!"
"Oh my gosh that's insane! She named a song!!!"

These reactions were just unexpected to me so I was like YAAAYYYY share the love! <3

a new song came out.
i forgot to update here, sorry! it was two days ago.

it's sort of a zaireeka thing...but it's supposed to be with iphones/laptops/etc.

for those who don't know, zaireeka is a sound experiment the lips did a while ago where they had people sit in chairs arranged in a circle and hold boomboxes, with wayne, steven, and michael in the center, telling them when to play, pause, or stop the songs so that certain parts of the songs are played at certain times. it was just a really cool way to listen to their music.

they uploaded all twelve of the tracks to this youtube channel but someone put all of the twelve together here, so you can just hear the song without doing all the work.

and by the way, the song is called "two blobs fucking"

enjoy!

Theatrical adaptation of Flaming Lips' 'Yoshimi…' LP 'in early production stages'
Wayne Coyne says show will be 'wonderful and poignant'
April 2, 2011 |

 
The Flaming Lips have confirmed a theatrical adaptation of their 2002 album 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots' is in the "early stages of production".

The band are working on the show with director Des McAnuff and told Billboard.com they expect to start workshopping the production soon.

Frontman Wayne Coyne explained that although the show will be based on the 'Yoshimi…' album, it will also feature songs from 1999's 'The Soft Bulletin' and 2006's 'At War With the Mystics' albums.

"It'll be a big chunk of Flaming Lips music, probably about 30 songs," he said.

"It's a big deal. It's hokey and wonderful and poignant and powerful. It's really become a perfect combination of my fantastical robot-world vision and [McAnuff's] little, internal, humanistic version of what that music is. I really believe it could work - and luckily I don't have to do much!" Coyne added.

The production will not be the band's first foray outside of music - Coyne wrote and directed 2008 science fiction film Christmas On Mars.

Meanwhile, the band have also announced plans for various bizarre new music releases this year, including USB drives buried inside life-size skills and a stomp box effects pedal which plays four tracks.

"Everybody's in the same quagmire now. How do you release music? What would be interesting?" Coyne said.

"I'd just like to release music all the time and just put it out in all kinds of weird formats and not just collect it until we're ready to put out [an album]."

The Flaming Lips are also due to play a number of UK dates this summer, including the Live From Jodrell Bank: Transmission_001 event and the Eden Sessions.

story time!

short version: i saw the lips, had vip passes, hung out with steven on the lips' tour bus, talked to wayne for a bit, saw kliph and derek for a second. the setlist was really good and the lips sang happy birthday to my mom.

long version:
a few days ago, we were told that we'd have vip passes for the richmond show. that show was today. we got to the venue about 20 minutes before the show started, the line wasn't very long. we got our comp tickets went inside. we saw our friend chris, the flaming lips' sound guy. he gave us our passes for after the show. instead of going up to the front, we decided to stay with him by the soundboard. (which i regret a bit, because for some of the show i couldn't see well until i moved back where the floor was a bit elevated so i could see over most people. but our spot was still really good. the venue was really small - only held 1500 people).

i went to go look at merch and i was wearing a stardeath and white dwarfs shirt, and their drummer was running the merch table, and at first i didn't look at him since i was looking at the shirts and he said "i like your shirt...i'm in that band." haha! i was like "thank you...OH WAIT I KNOW WHO YOU ARE HI MATT LOLOL" it was funny :D

then the ghost of a saber tooth tiger, sean lennon's band, went on. they were really really good! their set was pretty short though. the lips went on really shortly after. the setlist was pretty good - they played what is the light which is one of my favorite songs EVER. now, here's where it gets really cool.
steven dedicated pompeii am gotterdammerung to my mom's boyfriend. then, right after that song, steven and the entire band AND crowd sang happy birthday to my mom! (and a few other people, hahaha) it was so great. after a few more songs, the show was over, and we waited to go backstage. we were brought into this room at the top of the venue and wayne was in there signing stuff. not many people were in there, but it was a small room so it felt crowded. we heard that steven was downstairs, and he's the one that got us our passes, so we wanted to go say hi. we were brought down there and steven was signing stuff, so we threw extra balloons around with the crew, lolol.

then when steven was done, he gave us all hugs. he told me that he wanted to sing happy birthday to me as well since he knows that my birthday's on tuesday, but it was four people that they sang for, which was a lot haha. i didn't really mind since today isn't actually my birthday anyway. the fact that he was going to do it is good enough - it's the thought that counts!

then he invited us onto their tour bus!!! we sat there with him for a while and just ~hung out~ u kno. he's such an amazing person. i could talk to him forever. and he asked me questions and started conversation with me which i thought was really nice. he asked me how old i was turning (i told him and he said i see really cool shit for a 14 year old, lolol) and he asked what i've been listening to lately. i said the strokes and we talked about them for a minute or two. at one point, kliph walked in and i told him i liked his shirt haha (it was a deerhoof shirt) then he went to say hi to the fans (or as he said.."i need to go talk to these shit heads outside :D) after a bit more talking, he had to call his wife so we got off the bus. i got to say hello to derek (who is an official member of the flaming lips now, btw!) and he's really nice as well. steven gave me one last hug, wishing me a happy birthday, and we went back up to the top of the venue to finally talk to wayne. he didn't talk to him as long as we talked to steven, but we were still up there for quite a bit. then we all walked downstairs with wayne, talked to matt again for a quick second, and went outside in the front. we talked o wayne for just a minute longer, we all got hugs from him, and then we left. tonight was so incredible.

shit, that was really long. meh whatever.

Always the best! For one, Flaming Lips shows look fun as hell anyway & just hearing some more to that is just even more exciting even for a reader!
&btw, I might not get online tomorrow... but, I have remembered! Happy Birthday!!  :D


still deciding if I should see them at Jones Beach. I suspect tickets are sold out and probably expensive from stubhub. A little angry and bitter because I hate sitting shows but I'm dying to see them & I love Yeasayer & like Weezer. Ugh.

I love them, they were amazing at Beale Street. I was front row and sober, and I seriously felt like I was on shrooms or acid. Between the background graphics, the bouncing balls and confetti, I felt like I was dying and going to heaven.
Oh, and there was that little moment when Andrew and Ben came onstage as The Lips covered Kids........   ::) :P :-*

I used the song Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots for some project in religion class. I ended up getting a really good grade and when we presented them we got to play the song and my teacher got all excited because she said that she's never heard the Flaming Lips before.

I know! I really want to...I'll have to see if I can swing it, money wise. And I remember driving by Asheville to go to Raleigh- it was definitely a scenic drive!

I had a dream last night that I was going to a play that Wayne was putting on.  Like 5 minutes before it started, I saw some chick running through the crowd and she stopped at me and said, "You!  You, come with me.  One of our people isn't here so you need to fill in for them.  Don't worry, you only have 2 lines which are 'help me' and 'hallelujah,'" and she wanted me to throw my arms up really big on that last one.  But when they gave me the script it was really fucking long.  I was panicking because I didn't want to let Wayne down :(

Yeah, money sucks... Look at it the way I did, I've got to make it work one way or another, because this lineup is so fucking good. Haha.

Abby, lol, that's terrifying! I would have freaked and yelled and ran off. ;D

abby, those are awesome!

i guess it's story time.

abby and i saw the flaming lips and we got vip passes. we got to sit up in the vip seating area. after the show (which was amazing btw) we talked to the sound guy and he told us where to go. we sat for a minute and we were taken backstage (i managed to get one of the extra setlists) and then we were brought to where most of the band was hanging out. we talked to kliph for just a second. then we talked to steven for a little bit and i gave him a head massager lol. i got some really funny pics of all of it on fb :P
then we waited for a while so the dancers could get their pics with wayne. we got to talk to matt from stardeath for a little. and then we went down onto the stage. abby got her picture with wayne and then one of the crew members said that "we all had to leave because they wanted to do ecstasy" or something lolol. so0o0o then we all left.
it was awesome!!!!!!

I saw them last night at Osheaga and it was FUCKING EPIC. It was the most magical experience ever. I definitely want to see them again. They played the soft bulletin. I had watched youtube videos before of their shows and knew it was going to be awesome but being there was SO much different. Plus we were like 5 rows from the front right in the middle, which was, I'd say, a perfect spot. And I got to touch Wayne's space bubble. :) And he looked so unbelievably happy when the crowd would cheer, or when he was just crawling around in his bubble. It just made me so happy. And he seems to make himself very involved in his shows, tweeting about them before and after, it just gets you that much more into it. Fuck Eminem, The Flaming Lips should have been the headliners. (Although I didn't see Eminem so I shouldn't really talk).

I was actually wondering if they did it an indoor venues, too. I would imagine it would be harder to clean up indoors? but it's good to see that they still bring out the big guns no matter where they play!

I believe you on that one. But yeah, I honestly don't know what could beat The Flaming Lips' live show. It just makes you feel so happy. My boyfriend said today, 'our plance could've crashed and I would die in peace because I saw The Flaming Lips'. Hahaha. We felt like children, reaching up at the confetti going 'ahhhhhhhhhhh...'. And Wayne's laser hands were fuckin' sweet. :)

One of the best times of my life. Except my feet were sore. We stood for like 7 hours trying to get a good spot. And this is after two previous days of constant walking/standing. But you're right, the videos don't do it justice. ;D Definitely the best show in the festival. It was worth the 600 dollar plane tickets. Well, mostly. :P

My boyfriend just told me about that today, and Yeasayer opened for them? Or at least at one of the shows. That sounds pretty sweet. Blows my mind that no one cared though...

I got the tingles just watching your videos Abby. They're just amazing.  :o

I've been meaning to listen to more of there stuff but the only entire album I've heard is Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, and I have seen their film The Fearless Freaks which I just loved. Maybe now that I'm going to have a more steady income I can buy their albums  ;D

I have an underground magazine that has a fairly lengthy interview with FL, it is about five years old though. I don't know if any of you are interested but let me know if you want me to transcribe it since I don't have a scanner.  :)

they've done it the past few years. they haven't announced this year yet but i'm sure they'll do something. ticket prices vary from 10-25 bucks. this past year they also had 200 dollar vip packs. it could be different this year, though.

it includes a poster, meet and greet, and some other stuff. last year i got brought into the vip room because i was supposed to help put together packages and stuff, and i remember having to go back to get posters so that's what i remember being given to some people. i think there's other stuff included, though. :)
i don't know if they'll do vip again though.

I totally wanted to donate! But, as usual, I don't have the $$$ right now... which I'm also scared I won't have any when and if they do the New Years thing because I REALLY was planning on going to that this year! ...And plus, I'm sure they wouldn't know how the pronounce my name LOL
I'm excited to hear this 6 hour long song! &The fact that they raised $50,000 is absolutely awesome!!! Such a smart idea n_n

Back in our own state! Lubbock, TX tonight @ Jake's. Last night u guys might have seen the Lips last night at Launchpad. They heard we were playing, crashed our show and all band/crew crowded into our little BandWagon after. http://bit.ly/nzT8mp We hadn't hung out since 2003 Sasquach Fest (http://bit.ly/nxAtRh). Those guys are sweet... but crazy.

the pictures are these:

Oh my gosh! I'm just so excited for this! I feel like it's going to be so psychotic and beautiful! From what I hear it sounds so good! I wish I would have been able to donate :/
I love the UFO idea haha
I love the bit where he speaks about time and how it feels so normal at that point. What's funny is, the video is 23 minutes long and it felt like a 5 minute thing.
Is a release date out yet??

haha :D no, it wasn't a coincidence. if you donated to the oklahoma humane society through their website, you'd get your name put in the song, and i did :)

@larissa yes, i heard something about a 24 hour song... it'll probably be released in the skulls. BUT it might not be gummy skulls. i heard something like that but i'm not exactly sure.

@gulsah it was originally meant to just be released in gummy skulls if you went to a certain store in oregon on a certain day (it was annoying the way they organized it tbh), so there wasn't really a release date for people to buy online but someone got one and put the audio online. i think it's somewhere on an unofficial flaming lips forum but i don't know which one... they have it split into three two-hour pieces. if i find it i will post it :)

It is working great, I've listened the first hour and a half and now I've been listening for an hour and it really worth it. Any way and obviously there is not just one song or theme going on...
It is pretty insane I think...
