    My group had a great time at the event; I hope that's not the last time I get to see that lighted TOS Enterprise miniature in person. Amazing!

    Seeing Gerald Fried perform was great as well, and as others have stated he was obviously having a great time the entire evening. The story of the guy from Atlanta was great as well. Not only did he fly all the way in just for this event, he arrived way early and I was told he basically hung around the theater taking pictures and meeting the staff. Good of Jeff to give him a shout out in his opening comments.

    A couple of things did surprise me though. In spite of reports the event was "sold out", there were still quite a few empty seats. Not sure what happened, but I hope nobody stayed away or was turned away because they couldn't get a ticket online (particularly a fan like the guy from Atlanta).

    Watching the episodes was cool (it occurred to me that I had never seen TOS on the big screen with a crowd), but I was surprised that no music from the box set was played during the event (except in the background while the audience was being seated). Was that a licensing / public performance issue? The Elaan of Troyius battle music cranked up in a group setting might have brought the house down.

    Finally, I never knew there was a stuffed Glommer! For those who don't know they're available (with "gray" tribble) at Roddenberry.com:

    Thanks again to La-La Land, CBS, and all of the organizers for a great event!

    Had a lot of fun at the event last night. The Q&A was particularly good; those things can get out of control very quickly, but the moderation was excellent and the questions from the audience good, too.

    Dammit, Harvey! This is like the 12th event we've both been to over the last two years and I still haven't had the foresight to coordinate with you to meet up. Next time, for sure!

    Glad though you enjoyed yourself!

    Just placed my order! I made sure to be at my computer right at 4 PM Eastern/1 PM Pacific, and the site was live by one minute before then. And I just got my confirmation e-mail! Hooray!

    Made the order, but I think the site is having a problem--or is it on my side?

    Did we come close to crashing the site? :)

    Got my confirmation e-mail, so it didn't appear to crash while I was in there.

    Well, I don't know if we crashed the site but we are certainly causing a traffic jam!

    I managed to get my order in after numerous attempts *whew*

    It's 4:26 PM and I just tried their homepage again only to get the error999 "unable to process request" yahoo page.

    Wouldn't it be something if it sold out on the first day??

    It'd be a very good something for La-La Land if that happened, yes! And, likely very good for Trek fans because it would signal to the label that there is still a market for Trek music out there, and thus increasing the likelihood of future releases.

    So... buy!

    When Spock said that last night, the whole theater erupted in cheers and applause.

    Personally, I doubt that; there's not a decade I can recall where I did not wish for the release of TOS' entire score, and now its only days away!

    Okay, it's 4:44 and the site is loading fine, so I guess the initial rush has calmed down.

    I'm still hoping it sets a record, no pun intended

    That's terrific! I forget if is was Neil Bulk or Jeff Bond who said "No, it's really better having." :)

    BTW, all THIRTY SEVEN samples are up at LLL. So all of the TrekCore tracks plus seventeen more.

    What's really amazing is to take the previously released tracks (like Doomsday Machine) and compare them to the existing CDs. It's a big difference!

    Oh goodness! I just cannot wait to hear these babies on my serious stereo in a few days.

    Merry Christmas to me! And the rest of you good folks, of course
