OnNightsWings said...

No, I wish I had been... was there last week but already had my flights back to FL :(

Girls Don't Cry said...

If only. I tried. I really did. But my parents weren't fond of the idea of crossing the country.

Damn.

Florence said...

I was there! You guys were awesome, as always :)

Macabre Gacy said...

YES JADE!!! I WAS THERE. hahaha! IT WAS AWESOME!!! saw Smith fall. I hope he's ok!!! lol

Macabre Gacy said...

and OHH! The Crowd was Fabulous! This was like people were singing their hearts out. I did traveled like 6+ hours to get to NY!! haha!

jadedgeekgirl said...

Nope. Never been to New York. Never been any place farther East than Nevada. How lame is that?

Bandito said...

Man....I wish. I, WISH. I was in here, in my room, in British Columbia, Canada.
Rawr. But from what I've heard it was really great.

Which sucks for me.

l e a h said...

i motherfucking wish i was i could have been too but NOO damn school

xvinsanityx said...

no but you guys were looking good tho

Love Is Dead said...

i was there and it was fucking amazing. the record is brilliant dude, i'm just wondering what kind of stuff you used for the programming and whatnot. i can't wait to get the album and see you guys again. i screamed i love you at you when you were stage right at one point.

p.s.- i was kinda upset that you didn't play that long, i thought it would be a like real set but i'm not complaining.

p.p.s.- june 22nd at NYC please play now the world? i'll give you a dollar

Fluffo said...

I was!
...Just not seeing you.

Blame non refundable plane tickets and terrible timing.

My roommates recorded it for me so I don't mind. Your hair made me want to brush my cat.

wrmfzykty said...

I wish I could have been...had a date in court :-( Hopefully we'll be able to get in on 6/22. Saw the video on line though..it was awesome!!

almostvicki18 said...

I was

Mrs. Hoek said...

My buddy was.

Cheating And Winning said...

Sorry man, I'm stuck here in the good ol' bay area. when you guys get back to town, hit me up on here or something. we could go to coffee or something, hit up Gilman or whatever. take it easy.

slyabney said...

No. But I was (am?) hoping that someone comments that they were but then asks why.

But not everyone checks the board or has friends to pass along such information.

I wish. NYC is too far from SLC to travel on a whim. Not that AFI is a whim...you know what, I'm gonna stop while I'm ahead...or even, or maybe only a little bit behind.

Stopping.

I watched it on TV. I was there in spirit.

jen said...

nope :(.
But I sure as hell watched it.
and talked to the girl that was crying online afterwards.

secretshow said...

unfortunately, i was not. i was watching though. :(


i also wish i was in new jersey the day before. but things really don't work out.


philly though. 6/24. <3

Tainted Love said...

Not me because I live in FL which is somewhat hexed when it comes to AFI.
Not only did Davey get sick when you guys came here but MTV decided to go out for people here in FL yesturday so I couldn't watch it.
And no tour dates here.
FL is feeling neglected.
We miss you guys.

Miss Murderess said...

I would have certainly loved so, but when i asked my parents hey, can i go to New York to see AFI they just stared at me in amusement. Probably because i live in Mexico city... could you come back here?

shanagdi said...

Unfortunately, no. I would have loved to have been there, but it was not feasible.

I love the video. It's very stylish. It makes me think of Duran Duran's 'New Moon on Monday'-ish era videos.

StaticPallor said...

Fuck man, I wish I was. But unfortunately, I live in Missouri and it was my friend's 18th birthday so I went with her to the tattoo parlour instead. BUT, I will be seeing you guys July 5th at the Uptown Theatre in KC!!! I'm very excited. Have you ever played there before? It's one of my favourite venues, I saw Interpol there not too long ago and I can't wait to see AFI onstage. Just curious, will you guys be allowing the DF to sit in on the soundcheck and have a meet and greet?? I'm hoping for a yes on both.

kel. said...

Nope.
However, if you're in Orange County, California any time soon you should give me a call.

Miss Lead said...

No....Why? Did I miss something...?

Frin said...

I wanted to go... instead I considered throwing a "it's-not-fair-that-I-live
-in-Australia-even-though-I-really-
like-it-here tantrum" then went to play with the cat I commandeered from my brother and read "The Age Of Reason" (one of my best friends favourite books that she attacked me with).

I can't wait for you boys to come back to Australia! I missed you the first time because I was grounded. *pouts*

neko abunai yo! said...

I was! 'Twas a good good time! Heh, I created this blog just so I could post that.

Saw it on the tube...I'm very happy for you guys! You've put Ukiah on the map!
The 15 years of hard work is paying off and it's great to see!

little kresge

Nicholas (EndlesslySheSaid) said...

No, I had finals and I'm in Texas, ya know.
BUT.
I did watch the premiere on the phone with a certain -someone someone-.
It was entertaining...first time I listened to the song all of the way through.
And I saw your little dances.
Cute, buddy, cute.
:P

Ahhmanda said...

I was there!
And I was at Bamboozle too!
You guys were amazing. I love you all like beyond life.
I haven't missed a day in school for three years because I'm crazy like that, and I missed it for that. And I probably failed an English test today for the first time ever, but it's all good. I got to see AFI two days in a row. That just about completes my life.
I love how weird I sound when I say something like that, even though it's true.

Wow it's midnight. Maybe I should go to sleep before I fail another test.

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

Nay. Nay and nay again. Damn Canada, come here more. Can't wait to see you on much music (watching at home). Be a doll won't you and give the cam a wave for me. Haha. Later Jadagator<3

my.cure said...

I skipped work to watch, does that count?

said...

Nope. But I watched TRL here in Texas with the little girl I babysit. I was actually in the restroom when you guys came out and she ran to the door to tell me "Your favorite band is on tv HURRY UP!!" It was cute. She's five.

We danced around like dorks when it came on, though. And "awwed" at the bunnies.

rebecca said...

My friend and I thought about flying out there, we live in California. We didn't end up going because of money issues. It seemed way too exciting to miss though. I'm happy for you guys.
xoxo <3

Desert Queen said...

I wish, I wish. But a nice person taped it and sent it to me since we don't get TRL here, and damn, it was awesome. Heard you played a show too? *pouts* I wanted to see that!

<3

Pyrophoenix said...

Too far...No other comments

Todd said...

Omg, duh I was there! I like love TRL and I had to show my Lindsey Lohan support of course!

Mel said...

nop... damn it!

:(

Lorra said...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys were awsome! I was there at Meadowlands too, (my first time to see you) but NYC was SO MUCH BETTER!

I flew in from Texas. Can't wait to see you when you get here June 30th!

Pyrophoenix said...

By the way, did you heard the new Muse - Supermassive Black Hole?

You know what?...If you love Hunter Revenge...YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!

It is strange but it turn that every new album will be a new sound...and what the scuk is...Our album that is coming out in July...Wish we work for about 2 years sound like the new Red Hot, Muse, AFI and Papa Roach...Our inspirations...But once you'll hear, it will sound like damn plagias...AHHhhgggg!!!Damn it...I don't care...It will be out same title same music...And it will go out when it will go out!!!

Anyway the new Muse sound like:
Muse - Marilyn Manson - Franz Ferdinand - Daft Punk - Prince...Well it sounds gooood and weird...I'm kind of addicted

The download is not available yet in US - You can check on muse.mu

2 methods to getting it:

1. Put down a proxy in uk on your browser

2. Send me a mail and I'll send it to you. www.suiffect.net browse down the page and you'll find out my e-mail.
Open a new hotmail or gmail like this you won't be afraid of what I can do with your e-mail...or send Smith's one ;]
I'm not that kind anyway.

kxaxyxo said...

I wish I could be.....
I miss you guys so much. I'm looking forward to seeing you in Japan this summer. BTW Miss Murder is GREAT!!!

Andy said...

I wish I could have, but unfortunitally I was stuck in Chicago with an Autobiography to write and two self portraits to finish. And then I slept through it. Man monday wasn't fun :(.

Lucky it's online already, a really good rip should be out on afiseries.com soon if you feel the need to show it off to all your homies who don't believe you when you say you were on MTV.

chelsea said...

no i couldn't go...:(

but I heard you guys were great!

Shine said...

Ha I wish.

No, I was dreaming about how, if I was allowed and had the money, I would have so payed the howevermany grand to fly across the ocean to see you.

Lori said...

I was there, but it turns out that afi did not want to see ME in NYC, just everyone BUT me. So, I spent the afternoon listening to some verbose cab driver show off his Jersey accent while trying to flirt with me...all the while ripping me off for a ride to the airport. Spent hours there while our flight was delayed. And then once in the air, I tried to pretend that I was really interested in the view out the window so that no one could see me cry...all the way home to my desolate cell, where I remain.

Jessi said...

Nope. If I lived in NYC then I would have been there.

I did, however watch the premier of "Miss Murder" on TRL.

Pretty_Much_Totally_Awesome said...

I dont think you can ever understand how hard I tried to get there. I wasnt able to and I was really upset. I wacthed though on the TV, the new video is amazing and you guys were wonderful! I hope to meet you guys some day. :)
Much Love
Sarah

said...

Oh, and congrats on the #9 on TRL! The boardies are voting their butts off.

This Girl said...

I WISH.

but its alright. I couldnt go so thats it. Not gonna complain about whats already happened. Watched it though..hehe. You all looked lovely

This Girl said...

btw...AFI's portion of the show PWND over Lindsay lohans.

:p
cant wait to see you guys June 22 <3

Under Saturns Shadow said...

I wish... I was on my senior trip to VA Beach, Washington DC and Baltimore... I taped the show though! the video was amazing

The Timid Wild One said...

I was supposed to be there, but my parents bailed at the last second.

I was really looking forward to finally seeing you do your legendary show. I hear you guys are absolutely amazing live.

I found a ride there 2 hours before it started.

Check with the MTV guys. You could call me and make it better, haha.

I sent you a letter once last year. I want to thank you for taking the time to reply. It meant a lot to me and it still does.

The Timid Wild One said...

... I didn't make my comment clear.

I found a ride, but we just stayed in school. It would have been a 5 hour drive.

Lisaa said...

I was. And I have to say, it was motherfxcking amazing. My friend, Amanda [who loves Davey more than life itself] and I were kind of disappointed after yous guys left post the Miss Murder premiere. But of course, we and everyone else in the crowd almost shit our pants when you guys came out. =]

Amanda said...

No, did something happen?

/sarcasm.

Julia said...

I was!
I flew out from Chicago at 6 that morning and went with my cousin.
the best day of my entire life, despite all the waiting.
Caught you guys as you were leaving, so i didnt get any pictures with ya. but its all good- i got one with smith instead :)
and

I saw your van and adam in little italy after! i was tempted to ask him for a picture, but he was on his phone and i figured that was too rude. so instead i stared creepily and made a fool of myself. and walked by the van and only was able to see the shadow of your hair.

Elizabeth said...

I been wondering something ....
Decemberunderground seems to be a personal and intimate experience that only the fans could understand ,like a place were you could hide or take refuge (maybe I'm wrong but as a fan I think that's true ).
A few days ago I heard that AFI will be playing on the Mtv movie awards ,which I think is great and probably will be the only relevant thing in the whole Mtv show.)
so far you are sharing decemberunderground with your followers . BUT HOW WOULD BE SHARE IT WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD ?.
it means nothing relevant , just a stupid thought i had in my mind ,
you guys always say that we the fans represent you , and we think the band represent us , and I love and trust in AFI with whole my heart .that's why scares me so much to share the band with rest of the world ...
maybe I'm just a selfish bitch ,...
Anyway : congratulations for the mtv thing .
ps: sorry if I suck at spell
ps2: sorry for the extensive -cursi post .

Illusive Nothing said...

I might go to boston on the 12th!! If not, I'm seeing you on June 20. I'll be there 7 hours early, baby!!! ^__^

Ebon said...

Alexandria said...

I wanted to but I am living in China right now so I was out of cash to go but I would have happy to go I will see you guys in Japan in August though so I make up for missing NYC.

Gionni said...

Nope! couldn't be there. i asked my mother though, if i could go to new york. she said maybe next week.......i am hoping to see you at the 89X Bday bash and go to the listening party on the 17!! if i can convince the parentals.........wish me luck!

poppinsMxT said...

I was there I came all the way from Georgia! I was already in NJ for Bamboozle. That day was amazing! I love the new video and the album sounds so good I can't wait til' June 6!

WaitingForYou said...

I went to NYC and Bamboozle. You guys are amazing. I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I appreciated the NYC suprises! The new album is amazing and I wish you the best of everything ALWAYS!

adri123 said...

XOXOX

Chelsea said...

No. I had tickets to go too...
I also missed it on tv because I had training for my job. ,-_-,

Someone out there recorded it, and I will see it.

Video was great, though.

I hope to meet you guys in Boston next month. That would be cool.

blackviolet said...

Aww, I wish I could follow you guys around the country, but that'd probably be a bit creepy.
I think I may have said this already, but you seemed nervous or something on TRL. I would have been, too.

I love you guys.

falconer said...

I was there. And I was wondering if you wanted the video I took in Tucson? I can Rapidshare it if you do...

Lilith said...

I wish!

Alyssa said...

I was there!

You guys were amazing,
as always.
Decemberunderground is spectacular,
really different from what you guys have done before.
Can't wait for it!

<3

A Girl with Broken Dreams said...

I totally was in NY...the last weekend in April. Damn school trips NEVER get planned well. I totally could've gone to the freaking premiere had we gone later....

Lori said...

I WAS There!!!! It was divine.
I enjoyed watching you bop your head while you were watching the video~~You seem to truly enjoy listening to your song as we all did. I also liked when at the end of the segment, you started doing a little dance when the fans were shouting "A~F~I! A~F~I!..." Hee~

I spoke to you briefly after the show, showing you part of the stationary that I made you for your half birthday from Last Year! You said that it was kool but that you didn't receive it Yet~ I was glad to find that out (even thou it might be lost~ I made like 200 sheets with four different designs, in four different colors, !!)
Thanks for signing my sheet as you were getting into the van~
You know we love you and your music! Lori

technologic said...

Two of my friends were!

Nope,b ut I'll be seeing you in Maryland in 16 days and in NYC when you play with The Dillinger Escape Plan!

ChrizJoanliz said...

i saw you guys at bamboozle tell hunter i would have laughed if he fell on adam =) it was awesome to see you guys play a show (getting screwed over trying to see you guys since the art of drowning) keep up the good work/hair and pick up the refused dvd p.s. i sent 3 teenage girls to see you at nokia since the "family emergency" didnt quite get me out of my econ final see you on the 22/23 of june payce

Fancy me DEAD said...

No, not in Ny but watching and recording all you guys from southern Cali.
mwah

Lori said...

Oh, and also, Did you enjoy the Lemon Muffins? I asked the other boys, including your sweet bro, and they said, "Yes!"
Glad they were a success!

Morti Viventi said...

I definitely was

not

But I watched you on the computer. Damn kids and their camera phones.

yayfi!

Fragile said...

i was there!!
i think i saw you dancing while that red hott chili peppers song was playing. i was all the way in the back :)

Fluffo said...

Oh! I second the "FL is feeling neglected" comment from way earlier.

You do know most of us weren't born and raised here, right?

Star said...

I was there, it was a great show!

attention deficiency. said...

I wasn't there on Monday, but I will see you on June 23. I'm so excited!

ShellEy said...

Nooo but I was there in spirit! :P

Did you have fun in NY?

janicethemenace said...

Hi Jade; Tried for tixs but no luck ~ did have 3 good friends in audience that are allowing me to enjoy the day vicariously thru their pics, vids and tales of wonder! Gonna see you all at Weenie Roast tomorrow though ~ not nice and intimate as the Fonda was but any AFI is better than no AFI!
Take care and stay rested as best you can!
Love, Menace

MadAudiophile said...

All in all...13 hours there, 13 1/2 hours back. All on a Greyhound Bus, surrounded by the dregs of society, earning me a sore throat.

And I'd do it all again. You guys were amazing.

Aleia said...

T_T No....I definately watched you guys from my friends house all the way down in Florida while eating vegan pizza though! You guys looked great! I hope to see some Florida dates on your tour soon......*hint hint* :P

Toby said...

Todd's a stupid bitch. TRL sucks, you suck, your mom sucks.

...hi.

The Junesong Provider said...

damn.

i was in new york yesterday and today.... looks like i missed you by a few days. that would have made it an even better first time in nyc...

volare said...

Yessir I was.
Spent a lovely time right in front of you, point of fact... *g*

You guys spoil us rotten. What a fucking awesome day! Twelve hours of bus riding...
Boston ==> NYC ==> Boston...
(on the way I saw five hours sleep...)
Thank you all so much!

volare said...

oh. by the way... you guys been reading Hungarian poets lately?

"Now ev'ry tree renews his summer green,

Why is your heart in winter's garments clad?

Your beauty says "my love is summer's queen:"

But your cold love like winter makes me sad;

Then either spring with buds of love again,

Or else congeal my thoughts with your disdain."

Weelkes, 1597


first the Nokia.. then the listening party last Friday night....
LLW is chewing on my brain. HELP....

Katarina said...

i've never been there :(
i wish !! i bet NY is great !!
i'm stuck in Germany for awhile. blehh.
<33

kiwih said...

Wasn't there.
Too far away from Paris.

Vampirate said...

I was there. You high-fived my brother:). You guys were amazing, I love the record. Can't wait to pick it up. <3

Dani Girl said...

I'm a week overdue on this, but YES, NY was amazing!
It was a real treat, because I hadn't ever seen you guys live until Monday and I'd been waiting YEARRRSS!

Smith was super nice (I think I was one of the only people who recognized him) and you guys seemed a bit overwhelmed :P.
The MTV crew was kind of assholish and some kid nearly choked me to death in the crowd, but it was all worth it!

To be honest, I actually cried. It sounds so adolescent, but it truly was a very touching and spiritual experiance for me. Some of the MTV personnel were asking me if I was okay :P Haha.

On top of that, I got to visit NYC (I haven't been there in years) and spend time with the Naked Cowboy and at the Hard Rock :)

Alright, this reply is gettin a little long...much love :D

By the way,
The album sounds flipping awesome! It really amazed me how silent the crowd got when "Prelude 12/21" came on. That was definitely a great opener. The sound is definitely different, but it still contains hints of older sounds...very experimental, but in such an appetizing way....VERY infectious :)I actually lay on the floor listening to it, staring up at the chandeliers. It was all so surreal, I was taking it all in :)

<3

adri123 said...

Bass Boy said...

Kat said...

I was :]
I stood right behind you in the TRL lobby.
And I was crying, but I was way to shy to say "jade"
So i didn't

But I DID get a close-up of your awsome hair

i hate display names said...

I was. Good show.

Insect Eyes said...

I skipped a Chemistry exam for that. AFI are so much more important than passing Chemistry.

Nish said...

i was but i couldn't see you cause my parents didn't like the idea of me going by myself since they didn't want to go and my sister didn't want to go either
