Well - Excuuuuse me! I was just trying to be hateful - and don't rain on my hateful parade with your positive reviews of the parade!!! (kidding - as you know) I used to be thankful that the balloons were so reliably tatty - I'm telling you that Kermit balloon spent Demi Moore-like sums at an exclusive spa during the 12 years he was away. He's not fooling anyone!

It's actually a Tam Tam (large orchestral gong) that he plays during the instrumental in Charlie from the same concert. He also uses it for comic effect in My Mistake. I noticed the Gretsch, It's a Tenessean or Country Gent I think. It looks like an epiphone casino or 335 that he plays on What's The Matter With You, have to look more closely, and I'm sure it isn't plugged in.

Re: Split Enz DVD thoughts

I think they could have saved a lot of space by not doubling even tripling the sound bytes in the DISCOGRAPHY. What I mean is they had 3 best of albums and ALL the songs were re-listed as sound bytes, so what you have is many samples of the same song scattered throughout which is pretty pointless I think IMHO. I don't know how much DVD space that takes up but if it takes up a lot I'd MUCH rather wish to have all the video clips in like I Don't Wanna Dance, Next Exit & Never Ceases To...

Hey Campus no sadly ABC/Countdown threw out/erased about 80% of their stuff many many years ago, the 'No Bother to me" that some fans have came from our own library...it's just a bad quality video that I own and fading fast. Sad though as so much cool Countdown stuff is gone forever. Some of the Anniversary stuff is good, some can't be used as the sound recording didn't work out....my main fear is because it was filmed by Stratford Productions would it be in the hands of the liquidators too-...

Re: $30 for a single? $80 for a bootleg?

I'm an ebay addict and I've seen fan club CDs sell for over a $100 Australian. I can't provide you with proof but I swear I'm telling the truth. Proof can be found to frenz here who can find a "completed listings items page" LINK on ebay that describes/has an inventory of past ebay items sold and their final prices. The purpose of this is for you to check the VALUE of any prospective items/cds/books/video games etc et al you wanna sell.

Re: Major Next 'coming up' CH 2003 dvd VERSUS current Dreaming The Videos dvd 2002

BUMP! If Gryphon can't tell me what's going to be on the next major CH dvd 2003 at least please provide me with an answer on whether the Dreaming Videos will be on that 2003 release. I really need to know. I have a Christmas budget to work out you know Basically where I stand is I'm hesitant to buy Dreaming as I've seen at least 75% of it's content since I already own the I Like To Watch CH video compilation (which cost me to buy from ebay US$25 last year). From reports on TITM email list...

w.c.i.b.n. - I couldn't be too sure, but I'd say that the "Major" 2003 Crowded House DVD won't include all the video clips from Dreaming (I think PG even said that, but don't quote me on that). Anyway, you seem like a pretty big fan of everything Neil Finn / Crowded House , so sureley money isn't going to get in the way of purchacing both DVDs...! Trust me, you'll be happy with both... as long as your Christmas budget allows for that (you really do have to take these things into...

Crowded House - 'Something So Strong' by Chirs Bourke (MacMillan, 1997)is also a great read if you are interested in finn-related books. I also think Neil brought out a small book with his last tour but i'm not sure. I would love to get my hands on a copy of 'Stranger Than Fiction'. I think it was published in 1991.

Tim is finally cooler than Neil, thanks to his latest release, 'Feeding the Gods' It is just about the best thing Tim has done since Escapade and it is so FRESH. I am a big Neil fan - he was always my musical muse but now Tim has won my heart with his willingess to both EXPERIMENT and be COMPLETELY TRUE TO HIMSELF at the same time. 'Feeding the Gods' is a wonderful testament to a mature musician who has never lost his roots. As for Neil, my baby is getting just a little too self-indulgent...

I envy you... well, sorta. Sydney's never been my favorite town - guess I'm biased tho as I grew up in Melbourne and lived in Brisbane for six years... As for the tv coverage, um don't hold yer breath. As I recall, the 20th Anniversary (was it really ten years ago? WOW) sailed by with nary a whimper... Ya gotta remember that the Enz were originally a New Zealand band, after all, and Australians tend to look upon their Trans-Tazmen cuzzens more than a little bit like Americans regard...

I suppose it was inevitable that the end would come after twenty-five years, but it's still a little sad in a way. I just received my copy of Capricornia in the mail a couple of weeks ago and haven't even had time to get into it. Peter Garrett is a talented and caring man. I'm sure he'll make a difference in the world again at whatever he chooses to do next. Maybe it's better leaving while you're on top, and not hanging around way past your prime like some artists do, and I won't mention any...

Arlington...what you've gotta do is: find your photo in the album and click on it. It should be the only photo on your screen. Now down the bottom left hand corner is a bit that says "link for auction". Click this. It will open a new window with the url for the photo...copy it & paste into your post using the image button below the posting area. Clear as mud? Oh BTW, Brandi...my little pic is Lady Penelope from The Thunderbirds. If you're a sixties baby (like me) you'll remember them.

Yeah, especially when you people get Neil touring all year... and One All - yep, it must be a real shame . But seriously, I buy anything Neil Finn -related I can get my hands on (I even bought his book - Love This Life ... for AU$28 ). I actually bought the 7 Worlds Collide DVD without even owning a DVD player! - that's dedication for you! It sent me broke again, but at least I can have years of enjoyment out of it ... actually that won't be the case unless I can get hold of a DVD player...

I finally got my very own copy of the Enz DVD yesterday. To begin with, I felt a wee bit guilty about splashing out NZ$40, especially as I don't have my own DVD player. However, since the DVD is selling like hotcakes, I decided "yeah, why not?". First impressions of my first-ever DVD? WOW!!! This thing is fantastic.

Without making this any sort of official comment as I always prefer to leave stuff like that up to Neil, all of us have always been fine about fans swapping live material. The main thing has always been to keep it subtle. The times when we will get heavy (put on my Docs now) is when someone takes full advantage of fans. Example: a few years back (no names please) a club member who was one of the first Life members got a copy of "stage talk" with his kit (we included them in a lot, just as a...
