TicketMaster out of tickets.Here’s why, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

I still think Ticket”bastard” sucks out loud… I hate buying tickets from them but I guess its how it’s got to be. But here are 6  real reasons why. I will just put down number 3.

For the complete article over at Buzzfeed. Hit the link after the paragraph…


3. Many artists scalp their own tickets.

Managers — and sometimes artists themselves — regularly sell their allotment of tickets on the secondary market to the highest bidders. This has been going on for decades, and though it sounds sleazy, they’re legally in the clear.

This practice is pervasive in the concert industry, but it’s very rare that anyone is called out on it, though Katy Perry was outed for doing this when The Smoking Gun posted her tour rider in 2011. Here’s the language her management used in the rider:

Linters, plze go easy on the fish, here is why, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

From Wikipedia..

pollockIn November 2007, McDonald’s lowered the use of New Zealand hoki and increased the use of Alaskan pollock,[8] due to declining New Zealand hoki fishery sustainability and large cutbacks in the total allowable commercial catch of hoki by the New Zealand Ministry of Fisheries – from 250,000 tonnes in 1997 to 90,000 tonnes in 2007.[9] McDonald’s originally used cod, before declining cod catches forced McDonald’s to find sustainable fish elsewhere. McDonald’s is trying to maintain fish only from areas certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council, but that is becoming more difficult each year. Hoki is no longer an ingredient as of 2013, since McDonalds lists only pollock as the type of fish used.[10]

As of March 2009, the Marine Stewardship Council[11] placed the Alaskan pollock fisheries in a re-assessment program[12] due to catch numbers declining by over 30% between 2005 and 2008, and by-catch problems with salmon.

As of January 2013 the Marine Stewardship Council stated that the pollock comes from suppliers with sustainable fishing practices, and McDonald’s packaging/promotion will reflect that change. [13]

Smashed guitars and now Spit filled Mics, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

ps_zI guess I can’t blame a guy for making an honest buck but damn… Now Paul Stanley is selling his stage used microphones for 3,000.00 each. So let’s do the math. KISS ticket maybe a 100.00 bucks…Wanna meet the guys in the band? Ok, that’s another 1500.00…Want the guitar that’s absolutely worthless once its busted at the end of the show? That’s another 5,000.00. So to go see KISS you can easily spend around $10,000.00 if you want the “fool” experience…I like KISS like everyone else but with prices like that, paying 9 bucks for a beer at the concert doesn’t sound all that bad any more…

Here is the Ad for it and the link…

Adelaide, Australia – March 3, 2013 (Stage-Used Microphone)

What you get:

* The Stage-Used Microphone that Paul Stanley sings in from the stage throughout this show! BONUS: You will also receive a setlist from tonight’s show!

* MEET AND GREET: You and a guest will meet Paul Stanley before the show. Bring your camera for photos of you and Paul! After the show, you will pick up your stage-used microphone and take it home with you.

* SIGNING: Paul will sign the microphone and your setlist. Paul will also sign two collectibles of your choice (NO GUITARS.)

All sales are final. No returns. This package does NOT include tickets to the KISS concert. You will need to purchase tickets to the show separately.

Note that for your meet and greet, Paul will be happy to pose with a microphone in hand identical to the mic you will receive. Due to stage setup logistics, the mic you will receive after the show will already be on stage at the time of the meet-and-greet. The microphone you receive after the concert has ended is be Paul’s stage-used microphone. You will NOT receive the microphone stand or any accessories.

If you wish to purchase a guitar or microphone from a show you will not attend, please email for ordering instructions.

Slayer makes Yahoo, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Anyone that reads Yahoo knows who Slayer is…

That’s a not a dig at Slayer. Anyone that listens to good music should know and “fear’ Slayer (joking). If you don’t have Slayer’s “South of Heaven” in your MP3 collection, well, you need to. Or I guess you may be swinging from Justin Bieber’s ball sac if you don’t…I mean didn’t you ever win a Slayer mirror at the Fair???

Anyway, not where I am headed.

Seems there is a money issue in Slayer’s camp and when Drummer Dave Lombardo brought it up  he was replaced.

Dave Said…

“Last year, I discovered 90% of Slayer’s tour income was being deducted as expenses, including the professional fees paid to management, costing the band millions of dollars and leaving 10% or less to split amongst the four of us,”

Chris Dorner and David Koresh, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

christopher-dornerdavid_koresh2Just finished watching as all this unfolded. First off, not saying the Dorner guy didn’t need to be taken into custody or taken out. He had to be stopped. But as I watched the cabin he had “barricaded” himself into go up into flames I couldn’t help but think I have seen this all before. The police said they wanted it all to end before it got dark. Was it because our fearful leader Obama was scheduled to have his “State of the Union” address to the nation on the same night?

I also wondered why the helicopters weren’t allowed to fly over the cabin during this ordeal. On almost any given day there is a police chase on the airwaves and the police helicopters are right there in the middle of it filming it for the whole world to see. The news even “breaks into  regularly scheduled broadcasting” to show it live. But last night the helicopters  had to stay away and we could only see what they filmed from a distance.

So where is the Dorner and Koresh similarity? First off, they were wanted by the police. They also had firearms. But that’s not were I am heading. It’s the way they were taken out. It’s like the police or SWAT team has a M.O. for taking no prisoners that are considered a national risk… Think not?

This is from FOXNEWS yesterday…

A SWAT team surrounded the cabin and used an armored vehicle to break out the cabin windows, said a law enforcement official who requested anonymity because the investigation was ongoing. The officers then pumped a gas into the cabin and blasted a message over a loudspeaker: “Surrender or come out.”

The armored vehicle then tore down each of the cabin’s four walls.

A single shot was heard inside before the cabin was engulfed in flames, the law enforcement official told The Associated Press.

And David Koresh?

Well we have no video footage of how Chris Dorner was taken down that’s been released yet but we do of David Koresh. The Law enforcement said Chris apparently took his own life and they also said that about David Koresh. But here is the video. David Koresh’s compound/church was also tear gassed, had loud music blasted at it and in the end it was being torn down by a military vehicle and it “caught” fire. Supposedly set on fire by Koresh or some of his followers..

Chris Dorner wrote a manifesto about why he did what he did. It’s a pretty interesting read if I do say so myself. He had enough of the law being above the law for one…

Here are the first few paragraphs of it. He addressed it to “America”…


  1. From: Christopher Jordan Dorner /7648
  2. To: America
  3. Subj: Last resort
  4. Regarding CF# 07-004281
  5. Christopher Dorner w/ Chief William Bratton
  6. Christopher Dorner w/ Chief William Bratton
  7. I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days. You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. I know I will be villified by the LAPD and the media.
  8. Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name. The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions.
  9. The question is, what would you do to clear your name?
  10. Name;
  11. A word or set of words by which a person, animal, place, or thing is known, addressed, or referred to.
  12. Name Synonyms;
  13. reputation, title, appellation, denomination, repute.
  14. A name is more than just a noun, verb, or adjective. It’s your life, your legacy, your journey, sacrifices, and everything you’ve worked hard for every day of your life as and adolescent, young adult and adult. Don’t let anybody tarnish it when you know you’ve live up to your own set of ethics and personal ethos.
  15. In 8/07 I reported an officer (Ofcr. Teresa Evans/now a Sergeant), for kicking a suspect (excessive force) during a Use of Force while I was assigned as a patrol officer at LAPD’s Harbor Division. While cuffing the suspect, (Christopher Gettler), Evans kicked the suspect twice in the chest and once in the face. The kick to the face left a visible injury on the left cheek below the eye. Unfortunately after reporting it to supervisors and investigated by PSB (internal affairs investigator Det. Villanueva/Gallegos), nothing was done. I had broken their supposed “Blue Line”.

How’s this for swimming in the river…, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Next time you look over and think  the mighty Ohio River is dirty, remember these rivers in India. Can you image swimming in polluted waters just to take a bath everyday? These people need to be educated and the Companies polluting the waters need to be stopped. Agree?
