Recommended Posts

Now that I've had time to process the last submissions and tabulate the results, the final count is:

 

chocularok - 111

Rycheage - 50

Studboy - 19

aMetalhead1966 - 18

phaffas - 7

EaglesFan3000 - 4

Jacob M - 1

 

No surprise to anyone, chocularok wins the Royal Box Seat tickets to the Melodicrock.com concert. Congrabulashuns!

 

And the random number generator decides that the Front Row Mezzanine tickets go to...

 

Rycheage!

 

Please PM me your address information and I'll get the tickets out to you this week.

 

Thanks to everyone that participated. More than just the 7 folks listed above added CDs; several people knew they couldn't attend the concert but decided to help out submitting CDs anyway. This was a good way to spur additions to both HH and BM.

 

I will probably do another contest like this again, but instead of event tickets (which limited the interested parties), I'll probably do a CD package giveaway like I do with the Annual Donation Drive.

 

Thanks y'all!

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the show. I've spoken with Dan & he's going to decide what to do/who gets the tickets. I'd really like to see the show & put some faces with the names of some good friends I've made here at the board. I still owe you one Jarred for the help with the Hurricane fiasco... :drink:

Reason is two-fold...number one, it's real close to my anniversay & my wife would have my nuts in a vice if I chose the concert over doing something special with her. Secondly, I've got a serious problem with flying. I know, I'm a pussy... :anon:

The wifey thing is understandable. As for flying...grow some nuts...

 

:)

 

LOL!!!

I know, I know...it's not that I haven't flown before (my wife's family lives in Washington State). It's just that I have to take some serious meds & basically knock myself out to be able to fly.

Well... I'm in a quandry... both winners of the contest cannot attend... and both have said I may do what I wish with the tickets (thanks guys).

 

The question is what to do. It's been suggested that I auction them off, with the proceeds being considered a donation to HH. While I like the idea of money (don't we all ;) ), the problem I have with that solution is that I don't think it's fair to the others who made the effort to participate in the contest with the hopes of winning tickets.

 

So... I'm to give the other participants the first opportunity to claim the tickets, starting with Studboy, then aMetalHead1966, phaffas, EaglesFan3000, and Jacob M.

 

I am asking that you only claim the tickets if you will actually attend the show. If you only need 1 ticket and not a pair, please say so, as I'm working with several small blocks of tickets and a "onesie" makes it easier for me to divvy up the tickets I have. All of the tickets are good ones (either Royal Box at the sides, or Front Row Mezzanine in the very center) so no worries.

 

Given the lineup that's due to play, I really am surprised at the seeming across-the-board lack of interest in the show (those with logistical and/or prior commitments notwithstanding), and I don't just mean here. I would have thought the demand would be greater...

 

*sigh*

I really want to go, but it falls on Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. I think that might be holding back a few other Canucks (Dave Ayotte too?)... mind you, the Harem Scarem factor must be pulling him just as strong in the opposite direction! I'm trying REALLY hard to rearrange my dinner plans to make this concert a go. Maybe a free ticket would be just the motivation I need! haha. (kidding)

I thought when this concert was first announced, tickets sold like wildfire and area hotels booked up faster than Rosie O'Donnell tears through the buffet line at Golden Corral? Dan, do you have any behind-the-scenes info. you can (or are willing to) share in terms of number of tickets sold?

 

As for why I'm not attending...besides the usual reasons (excuses), I'm an antisocial SOB who hates crowds. Seriously, I despise crowds with a passion. Just going shopping at Wal-Mart is enough to make me grit my teeth so hard the enamel cracks and requires a trip to the dentist.

First-weekend sales were phenomenal... over 600 tickets sold. Then it pretty much died. I don't think sales have reached 800 yet. Considering that Andrew wanted to sell at least 1,500 tickets, that ain't good. :(

Hey, I resemble that remark! While I'm not agoraphobic per se, I'm a hermit for the most part. It was a BIG step for me to start playing in a couple of local brass/wind ensembles on a regular basis. Too many people. The weird thing is that I wasn't always like this; I used to love going to bars and concerts... the last 10 years though, nah, I'll pass thanks. I prefer quiet intimate surroundings. I just don't like big crowds.

 

But for a lineup like this, I'm willing to deal with it for 1 day. :)

 

Hey, if you wanna come, I've got an extra Royal Box ticket right next to me... the boxes are at least somewhat separated from the rest of the throng. I'll probably be moving about between upstairs, downstairs, and backstage anyway, so that will be even fewer people for you to deal with. :lol:

Oh, how thou temptest me. :P No, seriously, thanks for the offer, but even if I were a social butterfly, I couldn't make the show. Just a legion of things preventing it.

Thanks for the great offer Dan and I'm sorry for the late reply, spent the last day or so negotiating with the wife and I finally lost. I'd LOVE to go but it just ain't gonna work so you can give the tickets to the next person in line. It would be over a 9 hour drive one way. If I lived in the area I'd jump at the chance to go.

Woohoo! I made the list. I really wish I could go. If somebody drove me I would. That would kick ass. I would even pay for my ticket and for someone else to go if I lived closer. I really do hope more people buy tickets for this event. I'm sure there are a lot more out there that would go if it was possible.

    • Stephen Hawking said this: “I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers. That is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”
    • World races to contain new COVID threat, the omicron variant By RAF CASERT and CALVIN WOODWARD Associated Press   NOVEMBER 26, 2021 — 8:00PM   JEROME DELAY, ASSOCIATED PRESS   People lined up Friday to get on an Air France flight to Paris at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa, as a slew of nations moved to stop air travel from southern Africa.   TEXT SIZE           EMAIL   PRINT MORE BRUSSELS — Nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, the world raced Friday to contain a new coronavirus variant potentially more dangerous than the one that has fueled relentless waves of infection on nearly every continent. A World Health Organization panel named the variant "omicron" and classified it as a highly transmissible virus of concern, the same category that includes the predominant delta variant, which is still a scourge driving higher cases of sickness and death in Europe and parts of the United States. "It seems to spread rapidly," U.S. President Joe Biden said of the new variant, only a day after celebrating the resumption of Thanksgiving gatherings for millions of American families and the sense that normal life was coming back at least for the vaccinated. In announcing new travel restrictions, he told reporters, "I've decided that we're going to be cautious." Omicron's actual risks are not understood. But early evidence suggests it carries an increased risk of reinfection compared with other highly transmissible variants, the WHO said. That means people who contracted COVID-19 and recovered could be subject to catching it again. It could take weeks to know if current vaccines are less effective against it. In response to the variant's discovery in southern Africa, the United States, Canada, Russia and a host of other countries joined the European Union in restricting travel for visitors from that region, where the variant brought on a fresh surge of infections. The White House said the U.S. will restrict travel from South Africa and seven other countries in the region beginning Monday. Biden issued a declaration later Friday making the travel prohibition official, with exceptions for U.S. citizens and permanent residents and for several other categories, including spouses and other close family. Medical experts, including the WHO, warned against any overreaction before the variant was thoroughly studied. But a jittery world feared the worst after the tenacious virus triggered a pandemic that has killed more than 5 million people around the globe.
    • But..... but...... but..... he's not leftist. He doesn't slobber on Biden's wrinkled nutsack.......
    • omicron..... sounds like a failed metal band. LOL
    • 100% spot on. There is no heaven and hell, and nobody comes back to haunt you. That's plain rubbish. And why December 25th? The supposed deity was born in spring?
    • God they must be desperate. Notice they didn't say write a new song, prob cos all their latest songs have been rubbish. I'd be interested to hear one though to see if they can still write something mildly amusing 🤔  
    • Hold on soldier, I'm hoping that wasn't aimed at me. I don't think I was putting anyone down, and as far as I know, I'm not an atheist either. I don't actually know. I can't stand all this label rubbish and don't have a label for my thoughts on this stuff. Yes, I believe you are born, you live and you die and that's the end of it. But they're just my thoughts.  Anyway, why are we talking about Christmas now anyway? Still almost 30 days to go... 
    • Agree, love that Irish girl type look. Tans are overrated!
    • Only humans were created in the image of God, and most consider that to mean possession of an eternal soul. However, the animals were put on the earth for humans to have dominion and use plus care for them. As for Heaven, we can't know what it will be like, but in my mind it would not be heaven if there were not dogs for me to hang out with, so I expect that yes there will be animals, otherwise how is it heaven for an animal lover? This view of heaven being in the clouds, wearing robes and playing harps is mostly an atheist's invention to mock what they can't comprehend. To try and explain heaven to an atheist is like trying to describe the sky to someone who has had their face buried in mud their entire lives. It's a rather fruitless and usually thankless task. I know atheists have their pile of dirt and nothingness to look forward to (lol). Yes, I am aware that atheists have invented this concept of "ascention" through genetic evolution or artificial immortality as a replacement of heaven in your religion, but I'm not sure how atheists rationalise an incorporeal existence in their concept of pointless nothingness. It doesn't bother me either what you atheists believe, I just wish you weren't so arrogant about your nihilistic mindset and cease with the put downs of those who don't share your belief set. And merry Christmas my pagan friends! I genuinely mean that.
    • Haha. Been decades since I had any discussions like this on the forum and I definitely do not want to revisit, but as my mind is always ticking over I was actually thinking about stuff the other day. So if we (humans) get a fancy afterlife kickin' it with Jesus and God n' stuff, do animals? When an ant dies, does the ant experience Heaven? Does a dog, or a cat? An elephant? Do all beings experience Heaven (or hell too, I guess, if they didn't follow the gospel?). Or do only humans experience Heaven, and if so, why do animals have a pointless existence but there simply must be something more to a human's life other than being born, living and dying?  Genuinely curious, compadre. I used to have many discussions with Mark (metalmaniac777) back in the day and we're still best buds and we even made love a few times. I'm sure he doesn't mind me disclosing that. So seriously not having a dig, but I live to learn.
