I think it's only fair to allow all day for the announcement. What time zone is the latest?

I believe American Samoa is the last time zone, 3 hours later than US Pacific.

The last inhabited time zone, anyway.

She could decide that midnight in American Samoa would still technically be on Moon's birthday. On the other hand, she could decide that Moon's birthday is the 24-hour period starting at 5:08PM Eastern, which means she would have until 5:08 tomorrow.

Hopefully in the next couple hours, that's when Gail or whoever usually posts I think. Or is there a rhyme and reason to it? I'm new to the forums and the site, but it seems like the last few Gail posts were in the late afternoon (my timezone)

I'm not trying to discredit gz, I applaud all the posthumous releases. But my guess is there are more missed (self-imposed) deadlines than there are announcements late in the day. For that reason I'm not getting my hopes up. It will probably happen eventually, but the promises missed are getting old. Too bad Frank's not around to turn this in to Joe's Garage lV and V. Rock star dies and spouse battles record companies and rogue tribute bands while trying to maintain catalog because "music is the best." Dweezil? Get that pop combo writing some new material!!!

Dear People of Earth,

Here's what's thrilling:

1. It is Moon's Birthday today! And this morning I was lucky enough to have a cold breakfast with Moon and Mathilda - Ice Cream Cake and the sun wasn't even up yet. Yay!

2. I know I do not have to remind you that next December 2013 is the 40th Anniversary of the Roxy Performances. Now that we have thoroughly identified all it's parts and participles, we will deliver The Movie without further incident and maybe only a little ado. In theatres, DVD and Blue-ray, sometime before December, 2013.

3. MEANWHILE . . . before this December 2012, in anticipation of The ACTUAL Movie, we are pleased to inform you that we are scheduling the release of the PREQUEL to the actual Soundtrack. Yes. You will! Appreciate the raw unbridledness of the 75 minutes and 49 seconds of Roxy without the Elsewhere. Further details on The Movie and P.S. (Prequel Soundtrack) as soon as the duckies are all lined up.

4. Oh, and did I mention a new series is about to launch - Road Tapes - on Vaulternative Records! We've taken direct aim at Halloween!

5. Thank you.

xxx,

gz

This trailer was put together in 1999 and since that time we know that there are five shows, plus afternoon rehearsals and dressing room footage and additional recording studio footage. But this trailer isn't about all that. As you can see!
