I stayed awake till 2:30 waiting for it to show up.
I woke up at 6:00 to see if it had been posted (and to go to school).
I snuck on to school computers every two hours to check.
I rushed home to watch the greatness that will be T.H.I.S.
I've checked again every hour.

Question: WHERE IS IT?

The good news is: You're not alone in your obsession.
The bad news is: I don't know.

Launched! (with all new site, as expected)
http://www.tallyhall.com/
HITS NEWS wrote:So this first episode had me cracking up quite a bit. A surprisingly low number of scenes were ever seen before, so that was good. Even the old ones, like the SALT bit are still great, though. Please join in the HITS forums and discuss your thoughts. We'd love to know them and I bet the band would, too, seeing as their forums are still down.

As for their new website, it's got the blog all ready to go, an absurdly long biography (which in it's simple concept of being rediculously long, is still very funny to me because it's just another thing that's never been done before, or at least, not to my knowledge), a media section, and of course the news and events. Gone are the "fun" sections of the site like the FAQ, Links, Did You Know?, and whatever else I may be forgetting in my haste. I'm guessing since each section has it's own "color" in the menu, they are trying to limit the number of sections to 5.

One question comes to mind so far: The announcer for the new "What you dont know" clip about buses..... sounds like they may have gotten a big name announcer for it.

Ok, I just looked and it's Jeff Bordner. Sure enough.... http://www.voiceovertalent.net/talent.html he is often heard by all of us in some way. Pretty cool!

I'm saving that speculation for the Ruler of Everything episode... Music video?... do want.

By the way, I highly enjoyed reading the new Bio. It's rather well written, and made me feel... nostalgic? weird. but very good, hat's off to them.

so i just watched the shwow for the first time (last night i was in a room full of people)
i laughed so hard. it's amazing! THIS reaffirms my faith that i picked a fantastic favorite band.
things:
-the woman is looking at baby names and is looking at t-a-l names :D
-i love that they brought back the way they sing "tally halll" before the show
-the salt thing we've seen before?
-remind me of who ryan is again? what relation does he have to the band?
-can i just say the editing in this is phenomenal? the "wish" bit was superb! and made me laugh more than anything.
-the map in the background of rob is michigan... just putting it out there.
-we saw bora too... but we weren't supposed to :P
-joerilla is baaaaackkkk! i love that they're keeping little snippets of the old times. for example:
-what you don't know! f_cking buses.... ew.
-do you all remember on the old old old video section on the old site where there were sections labeled "dream journals" and "ask tally hall" that said "we'll update these later"? i think they used clips of that for the THIS
-hiphophipotomous.
-love. pure love.

  • Ryan (I believe) was a member of AnonyMous.
  • Ryan is Crot Nasty. (as seen in some very old movie clips, most likely all taken from the AnonyMous movie)
  • Ryan is a very close friend of the band members and more than likely was a roommate of one of them.
  • Ryan was their first merchandise manager who probably held other roles, too, but I know he was in charge of sending out copies of The Complete Demos and Chinchilla t-shirts when that's all they had for sale.
  • Ryan, along with Michael Anuzis, was instrumental in getting the band's music and videos spread widely to people like me, detouring the band from giving it a rest for awhile.
  • Ryan is a very nice guy and I wish I knew him better.
olwhatshername wrote: dream journals
Dream Journals was I think part of the AnonyMous movie, because it was the title of the clip which Ryan appeared in. It was an experiment in stop-motion videography in which Ryan and I think Joe, too, sat and drove an invisible go-kart through the woods.

THIS, I think, was meant to just be those small videos, but the band was too busy. In the episode, you see something from all the old categories, apart from KUtGW, which I hope makes a comeback. We have, in Good Day:
-A Random Video (Salt),
-Questions Answered,
*15 Seconds of Bora (which is possibly the coolest thing ever, and I will start going around singing "15 SECONDS OF BORA!!!...YEAH!" for a while),
-Joerilla,
-What You Don't Know,
-Dream Journal,
-and a Music Video.

All of those, but one, were categories on the old Media section.

With the high-quality version of Good Day, I could finally make out the username that "uploaded" that sequence of the video at the very end.

http://www.youtube.com/user/whalejoey

Nothing there, but it definitely belongs to Joe... just incase anything is uploaded secretly there in the future. Anyone know who's the guy he's "Friends" with?

Ruler of Everything.
I'm the Ruler of Everything
in the End.
