very nice. i managed to get mine, a friend called - so I started buying hers, she didnt need it so I called another friend and got his instead. He was beyond happy as he's a doctor and Im sure he has patients to tend to :)

I even managed to work it so Im paid through lunch - of course Ive still not eaten :(

it indeed is very nice.  close to the park and you meet lots of people.  pretty much just a place to sleep.

I owe thanks to eros - he hooked me up with the direct link to the FG page.  I was refreshing it randomly all day, as much as worked allowed, and happened to get a luck hit.  I easily could have missed it.

Uh, xnwx - if your friend is a doctor, can't he/she afford full price?!? :)

Got one - actually got it via my iPhone while I was at lunch.  Thanks to sweetcell for the heads up.

wml7: I wasn't hammering, I was refreshing every 5 minutes or so. I have a job, doncha know :)  That's why I'm so grateful that I got through: I could have very easily missed the presale. It was over pretty fast. It's peoe who were refreshing every 10 seconds who got banned.

LOL! Well hes here on loan from Vancouver for about a year or two. No clue what hes actually doing and if theyre paying him well. Then again - no clue if Canadian doctors make good money either.

Besides, if it werent for him I wouldnt have met up with a friend of mine from high school that I hadnt seen in 17 years, and I wouldnt have seen Tool. I guess that was my thank you to him :)

did you watch the "best of bonnaboob 2009" on fuse?  i heard it was a fuck of a joke, which is defined as worse than a mere joke.

early bird tickets for next year's festival are now on sale, $175 until the supply runs out.  that's the same price as this year's early birds.  http://www.lollapalooza.com/tickets/index.html

what's with lolla selling tickets this far in advance?  my theories:
1) next year's festival will have something big that they need a lot of cash for, upfront.
2) they'll invest the money for 6 months and make some extra coin that way
3) they're hoping that a percentage of people who buy tickets this far in advance won't attend, therefore they can sell more tickets.
4) the organizers are raking in the money while they can and will be disappearing to some third world country with the cash.  there will be no lolla 2010.

thoughts?

I think it is way simpler than any of that - they have a captive audience now who just got back from the festival, presumably had a great time, and may be more inclined to make an impulse buy for next year than they would be in say, six months.
