    ***Moderator's Note*** @Jedi Leo was the original owner of the thread. Since he is not on the forums for the time being, @I ran away is the new, current owner of the thread.


    So I thought...would it not be great to be able to listen to a Coldplay album from start to finish simultaneous with fellow Coldplayers, so we can geek, comment each track and share in real time ?

    COLDPLAY LISTENING PARTY THREAD

    The idea is that we pick a Coldplay album and a date and time where we all listen to it together. Then we can use this thread to chat about it in real time (another marvellous opportunity to increase post counts btw LOL). Initially we can choose albums, but then we can choose for example a marathon of Coldplay piano ballads or rock tunes or specific themed songs or live concerts :)
    The sky is the limit! :dance:

    General Instructions:

    * Synchronise the hour following this link. At the chime of the clock at the noted time we all click play and start listening to the album in its chronological order (or the playlist order listed on the event).
    * There may be a 15 minutes break between albums or at an agreed point
    *During the listening just post away! We will chat, exchange comments and just share the experience as we listen to each song together!
    * Tip: Use keyboard shortcuts to reload the page quickly and keep up with all the geeking going on! :)

    @Jedi Leo - Can I promote it in the Oldplaying thread ? After all, VLV and PM are officially part of that period and would be of interest to the "Oldplayers" too :D

    Ive never done it either! Honestly I dont know anyone IRL who is a real Coldplayer. I kind always wanted to listen to an album and geek with a fellow fan...Im thinking during the listening time we can turn this thread into a chat and just post away as we listen simultaneously, like a convo :)

    I'm in the process of 'converting,' if you will, one of my friends to be a Coldplayer! I think it's kinda working...

    Yeah same here! I always wanted to listen to a Coldplay song with someone else who would notice the tiny little details and had the same enthusiasm as me :)

    LOL I hope we will be too busy geeking and posting in here hehe :sneaky::loveshower:
