Hello Hello!!


January 25th, 2005

Hey, guys ... @ 10:53 am

candai:
I'm thinking about creating a petition of sorts that someone in the front of the egg of each show can toss to the band, describing all the crap we've gone thru, and then we can collect signatures in the line. It would detail the issues of unfulfilled, reniged Prop subscriptions, FanFire madness, and now the Ticketmaster fiasco.

Anyone wanna help me put something together like that? Then we can link the Word doc or a PDF and have people download it for signatures. The only way the band is gonna know about this is if we contact them directly.

Check eBay, there are already some disgusting sales going on. I cant imagine Principle Managment tolerating it, but considering the fiasco so far...

You know, I hate to say it, but I'm half considering doing that with the crappy seats I got. I'll just list them at my cost (plus the pointless U2.com membership) and let the free market fly as it will.

I know, I'm a bad person.

*shrug* Better to try than to do nothing and just complain into the air, I figure.

We need a letter writing campaign to Principal Management. Emails are easy to delete, but a flood of envelopes is impossible to ignore.

People could either print off a .pdf letter, sign it, and send it, or they could write their own letter and then mail it.

I whole-heartedly agree. Rage building.

I feel like Bill Bixby in the old "Incredible Hulk" TV show.

And what I'm pissed off about isn't that I didn't get tickets its that:
1) I drop 40 bucks with the fan club to take my chances to get in early and maybe score some tickets. Which leads to...

2) I couldn't GET IN to Ticketmaster. If the thing had worked, and we just weren't fast enough, I'd be fine. Random luck placed my http request behind someone else's. Oh well. But, no, I still get this gorram error:
"There was an internal system error. Please try again."

I've been getting that since 1:30. Someone needs to be held accountable. But I'm to rip roaring pissed off right now to think about it.

That's what I'm thinking - there's no way we're going to get into a meeting with them, but they're held captive up there on stage ...

I just emailed a guy who was trying to sell GA for $550 each on Craigslist .. his reply was hysterical. He Googled to someone with the same name as me (not me), then told me that based on my picture, I was disgusting and needed to fix my makeup.

Good times.

Oh my gosh, how disgusting are people! I mean it's comical that he got someone other then you but truly that is so reduclous that people don't give a shit about anyone but themselves and them money they can make.

Exactly. I Googled him myself - he's a loan broker or something who also does this with Dave Matthews fans.

Ohhhhhhhhh the posting's been removed by now by fellow fans, but his email address is (since they were dumb enough to reply with their personal one):

jbcii55@yahoo.com

His name's Jeff Cunningham, he lives in Laguna Beach, and he's "in equities." Uh-huh. Just google the prefix of his e-mail addy.

Have fun! Keep me posted!
