The Loose Moose Show has given us an excellent teaser to Episode 2 due out in "Spring 2012." In Chicago, that would be April. Hope it's sooner than that.
Just the way this trailer starts out with the earth spinning is cool! I love the iMovie program they used to make this! The whole thing looks like it's for an action movie. :D
I'm cracking up from the opening clip of them all in their double hoodies looking "gangster" against the wall! lol!
You have seen comedy...
What on earth is the clip with Jonathan hacking at the plant?! There's an orange tied to the vine (that obviously isn't suppposed to be there) and some random doll carriage tied up by a string! Our best guess is that he's doing a skit making fun of the cooking/gardening shows on TV. The clip later on with him in a chef's hat is some evidence to that. Maybe he's harvesting his own cooking ingredients.
And Liam holding the guitar with the word HELP on the back while candles burn in front of him? What on the earth?! lol
But you will never see comedy like this.
The next two clips...I have no idea. Jonathan in a masquerade mask and chef's hat (which we later see says "Thank you from 'Epic' Chefs") and then running awkwardly down a hill while someone reads a newspaper nearby? I don't even have a guess.
Josh with the eye patch and magnifying glass for the other eye is hysterical!
Loose Moose brings you...
Jonathan has quite the mischievous smile in that chef's hat. :) And we catch our only glimpse of Sam.
An entirely new episode...
What?! Josh with some little girl's pink backpack on and an apron and a wig hiking toward a trampoline in someone's backyard. Can't wait for this one!
With a new slant on comedy.
Back-pack-and-wig-Josh, more cooking, and then the four of them arguing about some piece of "art" that Josh is holding. Is it a clue? Are they thieves?
And then a clip of them breaking a branch off of a tree!!! That's gotta hurt! I don't think that was supposed to happen. lol Love how Jonathan keeps hanging on longer than Josh and Alex. :)
Can't wait, boys! This is going to be great! Hope the release date is soon! Will you be walking the red carpet for the premier? :D

Here's an invitation to Libera fans worldwide! The Libera (Singapore) Facebook page is organizing a way for you to send a message from you to Libera! It's your chance to show Libera some love and tell them what they mean to you!
You can send your message in writing or in the form of a video of 1 minute or less. All the messages will be put on a DVD and given as a gift to the boys when they go to Singapore. The organizers have a few instructions:
1. Make your message to all of the Libera boys, not individual ones, so that no one feels left out. Remember there will probably be some newbies on the tour, too. :)
2. Don't include your personal information like address, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, Skype names, etc.
3. They would like any videos to be sent in m4v.file format, but wmv. and other similar formats are OK also. They will send you an e-mail back to let you know if it works or not.
E-mail your message to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 29, 2012. You can also contact them by e-mail with any questions.
Libera just posted on their web site,
"Preparations for our Spring Tour moved up a gear yesterday when the British Council in Singapore sent out a mail shot supporting our concerts in the Esplanade Theatre on 6th and 7th April. We are absolutely thrilled to receive this kind of support and look forward to saying thank you when we come to Singapore."

Libera has released promo videos for the Japan concerts. The short and long versions are the same as the Singapore videos, but I have more cute pictures to post! There's a lot of great footage from the US tour in here that we haven't seen!
I love the clips of them swinging on the swings and rocking in the rocking chairs at Cracker Barrel! The signing videos are great and I love all the screaming girls as they walk in! :) Jude and Cassius look really cute in that astronaut suit! haha! The video of Josh and Jonathan (and later all of them) doing the Filipino dance is really fun! Beautiful picture on the beach! It doesn't even look real! Stefan is so cute too! Love him so much! Great promo for Libera! Shows the concerts and how the boys are behind the scenes! :)
Remember, you can share these videos or e-mail them to let other people know about the concerts, especially people in Asia.
