    Yeah, I got in immediately, waited 45 mins to a message of "due to availability, some tickets may not be available" and then found a floor seat for $450 and told Ticketmaster to go fuck off.

    Fucking ridiculous

    Ticketmaster is a cancer.

    Got together last weekend with my old drummer. Haven't jammed with him since around 2007. He was really good back then, and he's fucking phenomenal now. We clicked immediately and jammed for 3 hours straight before his wife came out and shut it down due to it being midnight. lol

    Not only does he have some serious skills, he's a great guy and super easy to work with.

    First time in years I've felt this hype on playing music with anyone else.

    It's sad because all the online alternatives to ticketmaster are equally terrible. Guess I'm going to just keep buying tickets at the door/from scalpers.

    My experience with AceTicket was anything but terrible, it was downright incredible. We bought Elton John tickets for $600 EACH, and even after getting the hard stock copies, we got turned away at the door - mind you while this happening, he's about to come on to stage as it's like 10 mins to show time. So we have to leave the venue, go across the street to their vendor - after we incorrectly waited in TM's line - and they told us flat out, "I've never seen this happen before." He calls his boss, gives him the deal, keeps our tickets as record and upgrades us with new tickets at DOUBLE FACE VALUE. We just got upgraded to $1200 seats that were 2nd row from the stage. I saw his guitarist hand his pick to the people in front of me.

    That sounds like amazing customer service. I must have pretty bad luck then. The majority of concerts I've been to either used ticketmaster or stubhub as their primary seller, and both of those companies are fucking trash and price gouge/slap extra fees onto everything (I HAVE TO PAY 8$ TO FUCKING PRINT MY OWN TICKET, ON MY OWN PRINTER?!!) .

    Just got the OK from the new client that we're good to go and can start working for them immediately... it's noon on a monday, but I feel like jumping around and having a lot of beers right now :D Which is probably not exactly the appropriate reaction for a mid-30s business owner, but fuck it, the last few months were a constant nightmare in that regard...

    First I was sad and mad that my trusty DT-770's died yesterday after 7-8 years of service but today I got a new pair and boy, am I glad I got these instead of repairing the old ones for the 100th time. These sound like completely different headphones compared to the old ones.
