    I got about 50% of everything they've done. The BADORB shirts are awesome. I wore the one with the CAT SATELITE shirt to work one day! It just happened to be the day that an EPA inspector came into our company. She was in a bad mood for me being 5 minutes late, but saw the shirt, smiled since she is a cat lover and the inspection went very smoothly after that! Even The Orb accessories help make a better world. The BADORB coffee mugs have the same artwork and are very cool also! To me The Orb are my heros!

    The Orb disaster was heartbreaking....but then I swallowed a few more pills and ran over to the Chem Brothers...then went to a crazy hotel E party with a bunch of girls, and my heartbreak was minimized

    The 2006 Disney Hall show offered mixed results. On one hand, it was an unusually heady atmosphere, given the intellectual context of the event and the venue, and on the other, the boys pulled an all-nighter and pounded the bass-weak system into the floor. It was cool and unfortunate at the same time, 'cause the system wasn't set up for the sort of bass they wanted to bring, but they didn't seem to give a shit and just pushed it until the all the bass was warped and crunchy. By morning, the music sounded like shit, but they were off the stage and partying with the crowd down front anyway. A good night, but fuckin' strange.

    I wasn't sure whther to post this in the tricky thread or the orb thread, but I found this on pure live gigs and was wondering if anybody here could vouch for it? maybe this is part of the cause of the orb disaster?

    At Coachella 2001, he played for 35 mins and was actually offered money from Goldenvoice not to play. Then they took some of the Orb's gear as they were disassembling their own.
    I can't imagine how it got to the point where they would offer someone money to not play. I also wonder the logistics of that... was it before the performance started, or during, that they tried to cut it? hmm.

    Actually the tent was running late all day. There was some groups earlier in the day who wouldn't get off when it was time. I spent most of the day in that tent. Watched Squarepusher and Plaid back to back. Later watched Sigur Ros and Tricky leading up to the Orb. I came to see Orb and was heartbroken. However I discovered Sigur Ros and Plaid that day.
