so... going to the puddle of mud/deftones/godsmack show tomorrow! w000000000t! and today, 101 announced - oops, some background 1st..
manchester has a newish park, where there have been a number of concerts this year. one was disturbed/mudvayne/linkin park/slipknot, which got a LOT of complaints from people living in the area, for being loud and vulgar. (i wasnt there unfortunately, woulda been if i had $). so anywayz, godsmack is slated to play next month, got a contract and everything, but the chief of police, who needs to sign off on concert safety permits, refuses to sign for godsmack because he thinks it'll be the same - loud, vulgar, etc. now while he's probably right that it will, and people do have the right to not hear the show if they don't want to (which isnt real possible for people living near the park), there's a few problems here:
a) godsmack already has a contract. so if they aren't allowed to play, there's a good chance of a manson-style lawsuit whcih would cost the city but good
b) once a city censors concerts like this, they pretty much never get offered any shows again. so manch would be screwing itself over in the future (which would suck cuz they're almost finished building the big civic center)
and so forth. anywayz tho, long story short, rock101 - local station - is making a big drive to vote out hte people pushing to ban godsmack, saying theyre only representing the old folks and ignoring everyone else. as part of this "rock free or die" campaign, as it's called, tomorrow they are giving to everyone who goes to register to vote a FREE TICKET to the saturday godsmack/deftones/reveille show, (in boston, which has no problem with loud offensive things). bwahahah. if i can go to this show two days in a row (and see reveille again! damn them for not playing the friday show), i would be hte happiest boy ever
i finally broke down today and bought beef jerky. we sell big bags of it at cumbys, and i've been very curious what it tastes like, but didnt think it was worth spending 5 bcusk to find out. turns out it's pretty good, dunno if it was worth the price tho. kinda like if slim jims were actually made of meat.
today was HELLA BUSY, it sucked a lot. there were always tons of people with just me at the register, and long lines formed and people trying to gas their cars outside and stupid old ladies who don't know how to fill out their powerball tickets so it takes me 5 minutes to get it all straightened out for her and everyone else waiting behind her gets all impatient. lyzi came by at 1 point, i asked her to shoot me in the head.
tho on the amuisng side, people are going insane about hte powerball, seeing as the jackpot it currently 280 million dollars. good lord. but yeah, i had 2 people come in and buy about 100 tickets each, and one guy came in and bought 250 tickets. haha, yay for them. (tho 2 of those people said they were buying for an office pool, but still.. and printing out 250 tickets was kindof a pain too. stupid machine won't approve more than 100 at a time, and there's only 5 tickets per slip so it was a good pile).
my hands feel sticky and i have no idea why. OH, this was scary.. at one point, i was scratching my arm and realize suddenly that it feels sticky. i look and there's a ton of blood all on my arm! gah! so i go wash it off, and there was just this tiny little cut, i dunno how i got it. but why was there so much blood from such an ittybitty hole?! eep
