    the belly.  LOVE the belly!

    and what am i thinking?  how FUCKING AWESOME that a dear friend i met here YEARS AGO is -  just offered me his spare 10c ticket for MSG.  i am SO fortunate to know some beautiful souls - many of them because of this band we all adore.

    ALL the feels right now.
    How awesome! :triumph:

    IT IS!
    apparently i  shared my 10c tix with him back in 2006.  who remembers?  hahahaha.  glad not all have succumbed to age-related dementia as i apparently have. ;)  and yes, please, do not take offense to my joke - i know all too well dementia is no joke and i don't have it ... yet.  :s

    and still thinking about how fortunate i am.
    also thinking, thanks to a member on this board - RATM 09.21.20 apparently somewhere in NYC!  :o
    Stay with me...
    Let's just breathe...


    I am myself like you somehow

    curious to see if i get my tix to MSG.  also, mr. dream booked a trip to asheville NC AFTER we already put in for 2 tix for MSG so while i want my tix - i'm happy they will have the TM fan-to-fan sale to get rid of my extra! (at least i hope i'll have an extra! 10c never got back to me about my possible "name" issue with the pre-sale - where is my confirmation?!)
    well got my answer.  ouch.

    WOW.  denied.  my one show request.  my home town show.  total bummer.  in the scheme of things, first time ever shut out so really, very fortunate.  beyond that, as much as i love PJ, and i so do - so much so that i've seen them 45+ times in 7 countries ... in the end, it's just a concert.  big bummer though. 
    i don't know if it's possible, but i don't understand how some can get 4-6 shows they put in for, and people who put in for one get nothing. i can appreciate how much work they do to make sure fans get the tickets without having to pay scalpers, but man, this would be tough to swallow for me. 
    There are a fuckload of threads about this on the Porch. 
    I'm sorry. I didn't realize I couldn't state what was on my mind in the what's on your mind thread.

    Well that wasn't my intent.  I meant, there is (was?) a party - multiple ones! - over there for the miffed.

    You wanna vent about it here instead?  Go for it.

    Fuck knows I've done my share of bitching.

    your intent was what, then, exactly?

    I wasn't miffed. Nor was it venting. Feel bad for those that got shut out. Just happened to be thinking about it. it doesn't affect me. I didn't feel like joining the bitching, which is why I posted it here. 

    and I didn't consider decides2dream's post bitching either. quite the opposite.

    hedo, your response seemed quite salty to me. not "helpful" (especially since it would be painfully obvious to anyone here that there are multiple threads). and again, I wasn't "bitching". 

    sheesh indeed.

    Came across some old private messages from two beloved friends.  They were with me on the old Sony BBS back in the late '90's...even witnessing (encouraging?!) the start of a 20+ year love between myself and another board member (now my husband :) ).

    I miss you, @brokenarrow and @PJMom!

    Brad Savage from 91.3 The Summit played DOTC today.  He said it was from the upcoming album from Pearl Jam called, "Gigantor."  
    :anguished: Oh, Brad.  

    (That's for you, Kathryn! :lol:

    Brad is kind of an idiot. Same guy who announced the wrong dates for a Jim James concert in CLE a year or so ago. Kept saying that Pixies "Head Carrier" was "the first proper album since Doolittle." (Never mind that there were 3 full albums, a greatest hits, Live at the BBC and The Purple Tape, which I believe might be considered an EP.) 

    Now it is just a pause in the workday to see what else Brad will screw up.

    Is anyone afraid of travel due to the Coronavirus? I'm worried about my upcoming springbreak Disney cruise... and thinking a car might be better than the metro in Paris?
