From the CB (via the CH):

Quote:

A short while ago I heard from HopelesslyDevoted who is at the venue. She says that she has been totally assured that Clay is fine and feeling much better today. She gave me permission to pass this along to the boards.

From last night's CV cellcerter: West Point sold 2,200, per the promoter, who was happy with sales.

And for good measure:

Talking to a couple of CV cellcerters before the show, and they are concerned about cell reception in the venue - zero bars. 3,000 tickets sold, as there are typically many last minute tickets sales for the venue.

The certers have heard that Clay is doing much better today. However, the stool is already set-up behind the microphone onstage.

I wish I could join you tonight for this party but tonight is my Xmas party...with the time difference maybe I'll be home long enough to see how Clay is doing. I just watched last night's video and I'm just shocked that he got through the evening at all. That man has a lot of courage and strength.

It's 8:08, and the orchestra section just started. I believe it is the same group as last night.

I looked, and the Chelsea Symphony Orchestra was listed for both nights, so hopefully that cut down on Clay's need to be around for rehearsal this afternoon.

This is slightly off-topic, but I finally read what yesterday's Word of the Day and definition was:

Flutter-tonguing - in wind instruments, a coloristic effect produced by the performer rolling "R" sound

while playing.

Sick as a dog, and still able to come up with musical smut!! :o :P

It was for a bit, but then the connection got dropped. The DJ is going to try to call back at intermission at about 8:45. It seems like getting a consistent connection in the venue is going to be a problem, as the Cingular peopla are the only ones who are getting service. This may end up being a "wait for the Clack and recaps show," which is okay, as long as we know Clay is going to be alright.

There must be sunspots or something messing with all the electronics, 'cause I lost my connection to FCA for a bit. The CV DJ spoke to the certer (currently in intermission), and as far as they know, Clay is doing okay. Hopefully, they will get a connection when he starts.

Well Ch is on...

they said that the ushers said absolutely no video or camera's today. They also said that the managers of the the theaters trumps Clay and his people over the camera policy.

Crowd report...very good crowd...entire orchestra section...balconies 50 percent.

heard rumors that he is feeling better but nothing official...stool is not directly in front of microphone.

From CB:

Just got a call from my friend Linda..2nd row directly in the middle..place is really full and apparently he is going to try and walk the stage tonight....pushed the stool all the way back.....they have a newspaper with Clays pic .. the whole page is his face..Winky Dink says hello....I am so pumped..paper pic will be posted on the CB...exciting thing too is that at West Point these are not regular season ticket holders..they are all there to see our Clay!

Orchestra coming out...look for the information as to how to get this paper on our board!

Its starting...

I came back to Clay saying something was "Duurrrtttyyy".

He took someone's binoculars and is using them to look up the violinist's nose.

Something about the members of the military academy carting someone out. Making Kelly Ripa jokes.

Talking about the eighth grade choir teacher and MCWL. The certer says the orchestra is cracking up at Clay.

Merry Christmas New York! I have an ear infection and can't really hear anything. Last night I almost fell off the stage. I have vertigo that pops up every once in a while, so if I fall off the stage, looking for a safe spot. You said what? That is dirty! Dirty! Filthy.

Something good did come out of that year - Merry Christmas with Love. Cellcerter says orchestra is cracking up.

Started banter, talking about feeling better, talks about last night's vertigo, warns them he might fall off the stage (he's kidding) ...now he is snarking at someone in the second row (binos) .."don't know WHAT you are lookin' at"...he's really snarky and they are roaring with laughter.....sounds like his old self....( ed. note: I think all that prayer from the Clay nation really helped along with some meds, right?)
