I've suggested Glenn on the site www.theliveline.com - which is basically a service similar to Say Now. The artists / celebs call in each day or whenever and leave voice updates on whatever they're up to, whatever they like really. They get their own number so fans can call in, leave them messages, subscribe etc.
I know Glenn is already AWESOME and pretty much second to none as far as embracing new technology to keep his fans updated goes, but if it is possibly something he might be into, apparently they're very interested in hearing from people like your good self who might wanna jump on board.
And if fans wanna vote for Glenn to be a part of it, check out: http://www.theliveline.com/RequestArtists.aspx

Well I've caught the first two shows so far, Melbourne was cool but, Adelaide was better in every way - vibe wise, crowd reaction wise, mix wise, view wise. I nearly didn't make it there, so am soooooooo glad it ended up happening.
Glenn truly loves life, and music, and that's GOTTA rub off on you when you see him play.
I'm so far not familiar with all of his back catalogue and therefore didn't know every single song played, but the main difference I noticed was "Dopamine" was played in Melb and not Adelaide.
Got some cool pics from Adelaide, some vids from Melbourne, but dial up might prevent me getting the vids up.
What a talent though. Still blown away!!!!!!!!
One thing I liked was between the two shows he was saying how much he missed this part of the world and wants to play here more often now. At Melbourne he said "he's gonna come back", but at Adelaide "I'm gonna come back next year" which obviously was great to hear!! Any time Glenn!!
HELL YEAH I'm ready David!!!
Just hoping I can still make it to Adelaide ok - got the Friday off work and one flight booked but that's it. $$ have been tight unfortunately.
Wow Rob has been a busy man!! Good to see!!
Got my time off from work to do Adelaide!!
For a while I was thinking it fell on the Friday - was planning on doing Sydney as well!
Let me know if you get that holiday passed! :p
I hope I can get the next day off work - I don't particularly feel like going to work after a late night plus a few bevvies!
Haha. Good luck mate.
I'm trying to get the Friday off to make the Adelaide show happen!
HELL YEAH!!! Nice news!!!
Was also curious on who the band might be for this tour?
Definitely doing Melbourne, and hopefully Adelaide too.
Thought we would have maybe heard about some Aussie shows by now? Getting worried
Just became a fan - cheers for the link Glenn
If anyone on there wants to be friends, feel free to search "Chris Szkup" and add
Too late for me as I start work early.
Nice to see it getting a run though!!
I actually thought I'd take my chances at messaging Glenn on there before I was ever on this forum (so I hadn't seen this thread and didn't know he was so cool with replies).
Sure enough I got something back and couldn't believe it.
Much respect to Glenn for that
EDIT: If anyone wants to be friends on there, my page is http://www.myspace.com/eatpopslop
I've wanted to do the same sometimes but of course it's not an instant message so he'd no doubt only see this type of message when he next signs in.
Anyway bruv - love ya :p
( ... and you too, EPS Where DID you get that name from?)
Yeah - he probably saw it the next time and ran
I guess I blew out seeing his name in the "currently active users" list for the first time - not every day ya see a vocal god in a list like that when you're on a forum!!
The name? Haha. Was drinking with the (at the time) drummer in our metal band (back in the mid nineties), and for some reason we were coming up with all these really stoopid purposely comical bandnames and things. I started writing them down, and misheard one that he said as "Eat Pop Slop and the Jimmy the Crickets" (god knows what it really was), and he lost it laughing at me.
It stuck, and we titled our semi released CD "Eat Pop Slop", and I also have a song of my own called "Tribal Eat Pop Slop" that will be on my album
On the very first forum I joined I couldn't think of a decent nickname for a while - until I remembered about this
This is probably fanboy douchebaggery I'm about to commit, but at the risk of that, I noticed our favourite singer is online at the moment.
So just wanted to take the chance to say GOOD AFTERNOON to ya Glenn - hope you're having a good one!!
(Everyone else feel free to write Glenn in here)
THANK YOU for sharing kind Sir!!
Loving the track, and the samples in general.
Gonna be one hell of an album!!
Looking forward to your return to Australia mate!
With ya there Mike!!!
Am a lil worried based on the NZ date though that I may miss out, as we'll be on holidays for half of July. Fingers crossed we'll be ok!!
(Any news yet?)
It takes a few minutes after you hit the magic number to gain access - it's all automated, so Shirean and I don't have to be awake 24x7 So you should have access now
COOL cheers mate. About to try again.
Went back an hour or so later last night, but fingers crossed this time!!
