You Gonna Need A Ticket To Ride This Ride

I am a Million Miles Away (a twenty-two year old Plimsouls / “Valley Girl” reference) today.

Ticketmaster, Oh How I Hate You
Last Friday morning I tried in vain to get Weezer concert tickets. At exactly 10:00am Eastern I was on Ticketmaster’s website as well as using my cell phone to call the local number. The goal was three tickets for a general admission show (ie no seat reservations) at The Tabernacle. Seems “doable”, right? Somehow I only managed to secure one ticket. This whole ticket purchasing process sucks.

Indecisive Paulie, Oh How I Hate You As Well
This one falls directly on me. Yesterday I found out Muse is scheduled to play The Tabernacle on April 10th. After getting to the point of purchase on Ticketmaster’s website I decide to bail. This morning I decided that I wanted to see the concert afterall. Yep, you guessed it, today the show is sold out.

And How The Fuck Do I Get A Ticket For A Show At Emory?
Cake, Gomez, and Robbers On The High Street are playing a show at Emory (I didn’t even know they had a venue — is this part of the Goiter Business School?) on April 12th. I’ve seen Cake before and would like to see them again and Gomez intrigues me as well, but how does one get a ticket for this show when you know zero Emroids? Shit, I’m old enough to be their daddy, and might not mind being a Splenda Daddy to a nice (legal) youngin’ girl either.

Tuesday CD Drop Of The Day
Without a doubt the cd that drops today which exites me the most is Beck‘s new CD Guero. I admit that am a latecomer to the Beck bandwagon, but if this cd pleases the way that I think it will, I am ready to lie and say that I’ve been following Beck since day one.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…

    I took the day off from work to get personal problems done. It appeared that did the same thing for most of the morning.
