Now that's a merch item worth suggesting - adult-sized glyph nappies, think there's a market for that? :lol:

:lol: But seriously, I think we should boycott their Twitters demanding at least one S/T song, start to finish, not half of it, not one third of it, but the whole song. Let it be a democracy. :unsure:  B)

I can`t believe the girl he called, Brandy, went blank when he asked her if she had any requests. I`d be like: `Bitch please, play some S/T`.

Another idea is for them to do another cover. Just one, to spice things up. They`re good at making covers sound better than the originals!

They had a chat that was up the day of, or maybe even before last time. Not really a chat though eh... more like speed reading 101.

LOL, chances are the chat is gonna be fast. Last time I managed to read some comments and while we were waiting for the whole transmission to start, I remember posting the word `SOON` there but never actually saw it come on the chat. I think the words in that chat room travel faster than light photons.

Thanks laurahya and coco, i don't read vyrt tweets so i didn't know about it. However i'm still a bit concerned cause a friend of mine payed for ticket 2 hours before i did and she got the email from vyrt within 5 minutes. I got only the paypal receit. Waiting for them to reply my emails :unsure:

That would be pretty awesome to see them do another cover! Hmm, I sincerely wonder what Jared said to Brandy on the phone, after slightly enunciating the 'pl' as in 'play'... of course, this could absolutely be misleading, but does anybody else have any ideas of possibilities as to what they are going to play or do? Haha, I can really only think of four...

  • Songs from Self-Titled Record
  • New Song Cover
  • Brand New or Unreleased Songs

I finally watched the two videos of Jared calling fans about VyRT. With the sound off. (Sorry, best I could [tolerate]do.)

This is what I got out of them:

OK so now Jared is ringing people who buy a ticket to say thank you.. Ah I don't know about this. Its crazy. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK.

View PostMars.echelon, on 11 April 2012 - 04:38 AM, said:

it makes people want to buy tickets even more because there's a (small) chance they'll receive a call from Jared. And probably some will even buy a second ticket in case they bought one days before it was valid for the call.
Wait, wut? *checks* Ohhh...
Yes and yes, some will more than likely buy multiple tickets because of the prize.

Reminds me of when I was little and asking mom to buy a cereal that was not my particular favorite but the "free prize" was way better than what was in the box of cereal that I actually preferred. Marketing so the free give-a-way is more coveted than the actual product = savvy.

CandyO There's a pretty nice S/T mug on Cafepress but you know copyright and all that ;)

I know that's how it should be working and it has done up until a month or so ago but now like Laura my multi-quote button just takes me to the reply box so I can't quote more than one comment. I've asked Helios a couple of times to look into it but nothing's been done. Thanks for trying to help anyway.
self control self control copyrights... but I would like to SEE said mug???

Ahh I see, well rats. You're welcome. Upgrades maybe? Compatible browser issues perhaps. I have 3 different browsers on this box and it's astounding how many things on the internet display/function correctly in 2 of them but not the 3rd or vice versa, in random and rolling order depending on the application... and could change again next week!

Additionally, I have a confession: In spite of my criticism some pages back, I did indeed bite the bait and purchased a VyRT ticket. Honestly, I might as well simply try it out to see what all of the hype is about before I comment any further.
haha awww you and the others confessing... nobody needs to "confess" that they bought a vyrt ticket like it was a bad thing...
oh wait. Maybe it's like when I bought that echelon pass lanyard thing cause I had a rough day and mithra on it made me smile so I clicked BUY IT not for any discounts but just cause it was pretty but then I felt the need to "confess" that I had bought it. Yeah. Maybe it's like that.  :P

I would pay the price again just to see that :D  Unfortunately, I think they're screened to feck and back before they get on the phone with him. It's like, I'm pretty damn familiar with Jared's voice but I wouldn't pick up the phone on a random number and instantly reply, "omg is that Jared?!" And then not immediately start bombarding him with questions and requests. And I can imagine that 99% of the potential ticket-buyers are ZOMG flailing fangirls anyway, so while I'm not saying I'd be teh kewlest person alive if I found myself on the phone with Jared, I can only imagine what the teeny contingent would do. What I want to know is what they talked about in the cuts. Or more accurately given what we were actually shown, what whatsername and whatserface talked about, coz let's face it Jared likes the sound of his own voice :P

Having said that, I had a total fangirl moment when he cracked up at the start of the second video. Lil boy smile gets me every time. :unsure:

There`s also Mr Bones in the background, I think.

So I Tweeted Jared yesterday asking whether those of us who bought the digi-tickets as soon as they became available are gonna get a phone call too. No response. Probably becuz his Twitter is as fast as, if not faster than, the Vyrt chat room, or maybe becuz it`s not really a business move to do that. Unless you wanna think of it as an incentive for next time.

I think you'd have to buy another digi-ticket if you want that call :P.

I just noticed a private number called me and i did not hear it and did not answer it. Damn it could that be Jared :angry::lol:

I don`t really want a call from him. I`d prolly ask inappropriate questions. But for the sake of fairness, someone from that batch of people should get a call, if he`s so keen on calling people. Just my opinion.

What I predict, when the next time the band decides to VyRT, is that the fans will not go all out and purchase their digital ticket as soon as they go on sale, and instead will wait on purchasing one until an incentive, such as a phone call from Jared, is announced.

I'm on a different browser now and it seems to be allowing me to do it! Life-saver, it was driving me nuts so thanks for the suggestion  ^_^

AmaritaVirosa You have a good eye, well spotted and yeah the placement of the first one is a little tongue-in-cheek perhaps haha. I like both pictures actually and nice to see something by Terry that is a landscape rather than photos of famous faces.
