So anyway. I finally realised that the SC was up and running, and I can’t help but think it’s expected of me to begin my residency as soon as poss’, thus avoiding the assumption that I’m not pulling my weight. It’s not that I didn’t want to post you understand, It’s just that at the moment someone else is footing my bar-bill, and the last four days have worked to the following schedule: Work, Wine, Sleep, Repeat.
Setting out my stall looking to the future? I figure I’m currently the resident console gamer meaning I’ll probably dedicate some time to that, the near future will involve a review of Fable 2 which I pretty much sacrificed yesterday upon the alter thereof. I can also feel an editorial on Peter Molyneux and his work with Bullfrog and Lionhead brewing in my Journalistic Bowels.
Ending on a rant, and why not? Why in the name of all that is unholy do people buy tickets for gigs that they have absolutely no interest in seeing, only to immediately put them back on the internet at an insanely jacked up price even before said tickets have been despatched. I spent a large part of last friday trying to procure me a pair of tickets for AC/DC at the O2 arena in April next year only to find that every gig in Europe(!) had already sold out. You snooze, you lose. That’s okay y’know, I get that, that’s fine. What really pisses me right off though is that while ticket’s were supposedly limited to two per person, sites like viagogo.co.uk (tagline: Real tickets for real fans) are advertising vendors selling blocks of (in one instance) 20 standing tickets at £275 a pop! This isn’t just insulting, It’s damn near piracy, seriously do you want my credit card number, or my anal virginity? I don’t know if these tickets were procured by vendors through corporate promotion, or through more nefarious means, but I can almost garauntee that come the 14th and 16th of April, there will still be empty seats at the O2 arena, and that’s a damned shame when there are real fans who are missing out due to profiteering.
