  1. Good post. My last experience with trying to get tickets was the Cream concert in NY that I mentioned above. There were supposed to be tickets available online through Ticketron at 9am on a certain day. Well. I was there at 9am trying to buy but you could not actually get to them. What I mean is that they did not really go 'on sale' until about ten after nine. By that time there was nothing left so they never actually went on sale.

Second time I saw them was at Madison Square Ga
  4. Its intellectual property rights man. You can't broadcast stuff for free. Its the same reason Prince is having all of his bootleg music taken down. The same concept as not being able to sell prints of someone else's art. The same concept as the writers strike in Hollywood. You wanna publish shows that they wrote on the internet. You gotta pay them a fair share for the usage. The same concept as not cheating artists by downloading their music illegally without paying them.
