Project is approaching as close to a death march as I will likely see in this job. My thinking about work outside of the office is annoying. What keeps me fired up at work these days? Christina Aguilera. No joke. We saw her in February when she opened up the B2B tour, and as I … Let’s get dirrty
Incredibly, the pre-sale for Rock the Bells did not sell out this week. Not even an entire day after it started. On a whim, I checked the Ticketmaster site this morning as tickets for NYC went on sale to the general public today. Apparently, the show sold out in about 15 minutes. Tickets are going … I’m raging, ripping up the stage and don’t it sound amazing
Redundant systems at my reach, pre-registered with Ticketmaster, calendar marked, cell phone alarm set. Regular weekly meeting gets rescheduled to now. No problem thanks to good ‘ol wi-fi. Meeting runs longer than I’d hoped. Checking the web site every minute just before 9:00. Conversation switches to small talk. Suddenly, the pre-sale is on. Heartbeat is … The rage is relentless
Rock the Bells tickets go on sale this Saturday. I was concerned that a pre-sale notice had been sent while my email was down, but no such notification has gone out yet. Public Enemy has been added to the line-up. Yikes. Tickets start at $82 ($156 for VIP) plus the usual Ticketmaster surcharge. I won’t … Poppin’, sockin’, rockin’ puttin’ a side of hip-hop

It turns out Rage Against the Machine will play more than one show after all–the seminal L.A. band will join the Wu-Tang Clan for three shows under the banner of Rock the Bells, the acclaimed hip-hop festival that kicks off in … …
Rage Against the Machine will reunite for Coachella. Just noticed this today in a Chronicle article on Tom Morello’s solo project. Single-day tickets for Rage are already sold out, but three-day passes (4/27-4/29) are still available for $280 (after fees). Throw in hotel and transportation costs, and I’m still thinking about it.
New Order considering a 2nd show in New York City. Just noticed this today. Mm, mm, mm.
I must scream now. This story is so painful that hopefully others will learn from my folly. Yesterday I missed the chance to buy tickets for New Order during the pre-sale, and they are already going for just under $100 on ebay. 11:00am on sale today. I have already postponed a meeting so I can … …
Debt Slavery: What the Bankruptcy Bill Could Do to You. I was wrong about the bankruptcy bill, which has passed the Senate but not the House yet. Busy writing letters to various House Representatives about the hypocrisy of passing a reform bill which doesn’t address corporate abuses of the bankruptcy system. No mercy. I can … …
Presale for New Order Oakland concert started yesterday. Luckily, it looks like I won’t have to obsess about flying across the country for that weekend since the band is confirmed for NYC on May 5th. Hooyah!
