yup, i did.  :-)

somehow i doubt that the people at RealTime can *tell the difference*
between chris' and rick's voices.  maybe chris just writes the poppiest
songs.  although if that was the criteria it's weird that they didn't
play julie's "soon, coming closer".

the songs were:

1) "sun coming up"
2) "introduction into the..." pts. 1&2
3) "now a friend"
4) "alone and annoyed"
5) "universal dawn"

>Does anyone know if Mark does a cut on the album like he did on forever again?

the opening track "introduction into the..." is actually a medley of four
tunes, one by each of the members.  first chris, then julie, then rick,
then mark (it's an instrumental of his).  they didn't play the rick and
mark parts on realtime.

>Songs 1and 2, Now a Friend, Alone and Annoyed, and Universal Dawn.

it was pretty random.  the actually order is as follows:

- "introduction into the..." pts 1-4
- "hourly" (rick)
- "sixteen hours" (rick)
- "universe" (rick)
- "eyes shut" (julie sings; it sounds like a rick song)
- "alone & annoyed" (chris)
- "lighthouse" (rick)

- "spaceship opening" (rick)
- "universal dawn" (chris)
- "one floor below" (rick)
- "now a friend" (chris)
- "soon, coming closer" (julie)
- "not yours" (rick)
- "sun coming up" (rick)
- "beach" (rick)

>Also, I've heard rumours of a Broken girl full length release sometime soon?
>Does anyone know anything about this?  

it's going to be distributed by sub pop.
sappy are putting it out on CD and murder *might* be putting out the LP.
