Ansa, the CV thread usually start about 15 minutes before William Joseph, so I tune in to get the venue chatter, and so on.

jojoct is near the cellcerter, and is having a little discussion with Jerome about some changes in seating arrangements... It turns out they are seating Clay's grandpa in their row.

CH cellcerter is right next the the CV cellcerter.

Ohhh, the arena is dark now (with small spots of light) for William Joseph's set. And, yes, I do need one more window open for this cellcert... :P Five's not to many is it? At least I turned off my download manager.

Carol of the Bells - lots of crowd reaction. Maybe this group will be more vocal than the Charlotte crowd.

Man, the Clay Nation killed the webcam...

WJ just finished the "Christmas Classic" Kashmir.

Now playing Clay's favorite: Homeward Bound. Can I get a big group "AWWW" for our guy being home?

Hope William and Maka get to fly home and see their families over the break.

I've seen Maka refered to as William's assistant, rather than his bodyguard, although apparently he is a big guy. He seems to be very personable from the recaps I've read.

Lots of screams for the end of William's set.

OK, Clay radio is up.

Too bad about the RBC center, it certainly had a better picture than the previous dot cert.

According to the cellcerter, the venue looks pretty full, except for some of the section with an obstructed view, and some rows at the very top. Awwhhhooo Hooo - sounds like the biggest crowd yet.

Damn, the oddest thing happened, a gnat just felw up my nose? I wonder if that means something - first it is cold and I have not seen flying bugs like that around.

The venue was filling in nicely before the RBC turned off the camera.

What is going on with the cellcert - Is GBB smutting?

Apparently, Nick has been spotted wandering around with his All-Access pass. The cellcerter is getting a little swoony over seeing him...she's so cute.

And of course my stream was buffering, but reports are that we got a "Hi Clayversity" from Nick.

so exciting tonight.. everyone is crazy.. stub hubber going to talk to her..after the show.. can see Jaymes..

this place is going to explode when Clay walks on stage..gotta run shut down front desk. bb in a few minutes..

---

This is the cellcerter who spoke to JFL last night. She saw James this am. They talked last night about When I Need You......Clay played it for James last night....the recording that he made that didn't make it onto MOAM...can you imagine hearing that...

---

I doubt it. I can't imagine the songs that he has recorded that haven't make it onto a CD. I hope we get to hear them someday. This song just happened to come up in the conversation last night.

Nick just said Hi to Clayversity! What a sweetie!

Someone gave Nick a mini baseball bat to use on the flashers.

Somebody gave Nick a little baseball bat for the flashers...

They had a Santa at their party and Santa's pants fell down....Santa said you shouldn't flash....

From CH:

Report was that they had 5600 sold two days ago and now at 8400. More people than our cellcerter was expecting. There are cellcerters all around her.

Clay's grandfather is sitting two seats away from her. They added a seat into the aisle next tojojoct 4th row jojoct told Jerome that she had to film (she didn't know who seat was for at the time!). So they moved seat across the aisle. HA!!
