  1. Ouch. You got me feeling like a wimp again. Why you got it in for me? 🤪 haha
  2. A young gay man from Iran named Alireza (Ali) Fazeli-Monfared was reportedly murdered and beheaded on Tuesday, May 4, by his half-brother and cousins in an alleged honor killing after they discovered his sexual orientation. The suspects found out that Fazeli-Monfared was gay through the military service exemption card sent by Iran’s conscription organization a few days before the killing. 2-Alireza was killed by being beheaded by his family. After beheading him, the family dumped this poor man’s body under a tree outside of the city of Ahwaz. Alireza was about to flee Iran to join his
  3. I like this as well. It's uplifting and hopeful. 'We are the people we've been waiting for.' Beautiful sentiment.
  4. I thought that was a pic of Larry, not a gif. I just freaked out when his eyes blinked. Even my dog looked at me like I'm a wimp. 🤫
  5. I checked Chicago and the United Center has Genesis for two nights. Both are pretty much sold out. Despite this, half the tickets on the floor are available for resale and at least a third in the bowl are also available for verified resale on Ticketmaster. I've never scalping like that. I found a 9th row single for Genesis at the UC in Chicago and it was $500 face value. There was a pair a few seats over for the same price each. Save those, everything else was verified resale. Best seats came up as costing close to four grand verified resale. That sucks. I know how much you love them.
  6. Ticketmaster is not the promoter, even though they are owned by Live Nation. They deal with all the flack yet have nothing to do with prices. Live Nation is part of who sets the price, however; so is the artist, unless Live Nation is the sole promoter. It varies based on contractual agreements, etc. Generally, the artist is involved in setting ticket prices, or are at least aware and agrees to the price Genesis booking that tour is roll of the dice. We go back to say, 50% capacity, and they are looking at rescheduling or figuring out which 50% gets to see the show and which does not.
  7. I can't tell you many times I got a great seat, or seats, by doing this. It's how I got front row by the Edge for EI and only paid $106. It's also how I got front row for Tina Turner, The Smashing Pumpkins and other shows. I have had tickets to Matchbox Twenty and The Wallflowers for quite some time now. It was supposed to be last summer but got switched to August 2021. That recently got changed to June 2022. I don't care. We've 7th row center seats on the aisle. I'm not giving up that show. Finally hearing Back 2 Good live again is necessary for my survival. My next concert
  8. Me too and for all countries/everyone. There are more vaccines getting ready to be approved soon so here is hoping...
  9. My dog's coat badly needs to be pulled. I'm waiting for a nice day so I can do it outside with my Irish Terrier mentor. It's complicated and a lot of work. I did get it raked and brushed to where there were no mats. She looks a lot better. It's so long and she's so wild that she looks all scruffy again. Lol It was a good day, despite being in a winter jacket. Last Saturday, it was 88 degrees by me. (31 C) I don't know how to dress! 🤔
  10. It's like it got taken to a new level in their most recent recordings of Out Of Control; especially during the EI tour. It's the one that most excited me when I saw the downloads. I got the other three today as well. I checked my download and it was the other three that got mentioned, including Wild Horses.
  11. I got the second three as well today, so that's six. Weird. Maybe the first three will be there tomorrow, or the next time you check? Something seems afoot.
  12. Six? I suddenly feel very, very old but the video looks new.
  13. We went from shorts and tees to winter temps in the last week. It was not pleasant but the Sun is shining today and warmer weather is due next week.
  14. I'm listening to I Will Follow right now. It sounds really good. It was a very bad choice of words, which is why I edited down my comment. I understand wanting and waiting for something. I resubscribed early, just in case the downloads got released before my subscription expired, which it does next week. I've been wanting them too. Electric Co is now playing and wow.
  15. I did not know it said July. They've three months before they are or are not fulfilling any obligation to us subscribers. They always release a few tracks at a time.
  16. I wish they would not say early 2021 (and other years). Say later and if ready earlier in the year, it's a nice surprise. In all fairness, we are still in the first half of 2021. I am hoping starting to release the tracks means production of this year's gift is going well and wrapping up, if not done. Shipping logistics with the pandemic would not be a task I'd enjoy. I hope that goes well too.
  17. The cobra's tongue flickers with brilliant new clarity.
  18. One can dream while waiting. 😄
  19. If we had to rent the place we should get control of the volume level, me-thinks. 😎
  20. The theater was fairly full when I saw it. It was not IMAX, just your standard movie place where I live. I was surprised there were that many people. I think they had announced Vertigo was coming to my city and there was a buzz. I could be wrong with that timing. I wish. It didn't play in IMAX here but must have in Chicago, which is 90 minutes south if you know traffic.
  21. U23D has come up more than once in threads. It seems to me that it's up to us to make it happen. (unless I'm misunderstanding Mich and Max's comments) Someone owns the rights. Chances are it's not going to be released for commercial sale. The same goes for theaters running it on their own. I truly want to see it again and am willing to commit to putting forth effort to help make it happen. How do we convince theaters that they will make money if they screen it? When they reopen, they're going to need to maximize profits to make up for losses. I don't think they're gonna run (so sorry
  22. The pandemic and ensuing isolation provided down time to think. Riffs which existed between past friends and myself have been healed and it's back 2 good after years of distance. It went both ways, which I find the amazing part. It was not one side saying, "Hey, I was wrong." It was both, at the same time, realizing holding a grudge is an unnecessary chain.
