Howdy one, howdy all. Greetings to ya from me, Matt Maul. Sorry, had to. Anyway. It's never too early to start planning, as they say, so what's the current outlook in Ep2 line-ups? After Ep1 I think we have a better idea of the potential pitfalls and hazards that are involved in a line-up of that magnitude, so we should be in a good position to do Ep2 even better! First off, do we want to do it at McClurg again? Sure theater 1 rules, sure it's downtown and close to the media and attention we love ever so much but it's right off the lake, poorly laid out for people to sit/stand/sleep/collapse in front of and the crazy homeless people at 3am leaves a lot to be desired of a line-up. One potential replacement for McClurg, at least in my opinion, would be The Gardens at Old Orchard. It's in a mall, so we'd just have to clear it with the mall office (no pleading with Chinese food restaurants and hotel dignitaries again) and there's plenty of room - plus there's a Barnes and Noble right across from there! I know it's the 'burbs and there are some of us without a way to get out to the burbs easily but there are plenty of trains and buses that go out there and I'd be willing to pick people up from Chicagoland to get up there come May 2002, I'm sure. Well me and other CF members. So discuss! I think we should stay away from those googaplexes in the burbs but McClurg just didn't feel right. Great theater but not ideal for a line, my opinion again. Take care one and all. matt maul.
