Can someone let me know what this thread is about? Thanks! It seems like people are searching some kind of database and listing random concerts that happened this week in history (?)

How dare you take a shit in this thread with this off-topic stuff? Many people come to this messageboard solely for this thread. Shows that occurred last week in history belong in this thread not here. Is it really too much to ask that you not take a shit all over this thread and make us read your off-topic nonsense?

The thread where the narcissistic assholes post weekly their concert spreadsheets of what they saw that week in past years is an instant must-miss. I will probably check in with it around January 2016 to see if my hypothesis is true that, yes, they're going to post the same excel spreadsheet entries again annually with the year before's shows added because they literally have nothing better to talk about.

. . . the thread where the assholes think their concert spreadsheet is a gripping read for others. It's the participation trophy of forum topics.

Thanks Carlos.

I'm amazed that people can remember what shows they saw when so many years ago.

Sometimes it's hard for me to keep straight what band I saw or didn't, the very next day.

I keep a list. It's quite simple. And you know what? I find it entertaining to see what shows happened in this area, a lot of people aren't from here and perhaps (for example) a random Oasis fan might find it interesting that they played one of about 4 shows in the area when "What's the Story (Morning Glory)" was released before shelving the tour and then becoming the biggest band in the UK since the Beatles.  I love seeing what other shows some of you attended way before I knew some of you because then I realize that I was there too. But clearly I took a shit in someone's corn flakes today.

I mean you are posting shows that DID NOT occur on this week in history in a post which shows DID occur on this week in history thread. You might as well be raping kids while drowning cats or, worse yet, posting commentary in Just Announced. How did you expect people to react to this destroying of all we hold sacred?

Fascinating. I used to keep a list of the people that I kissed in my life, but I never thought to keep a list of concerts attended.

I wonder if there would be any kind of correlation in the length of those two lists for people?

One time I was somewhere waiting for something or other and while doing so, I decided to make a list of every woman I'd slept with. We're not talking huge numbers here, but it was enough to curate a list. Finally my wait was over and who knows what happened to the list.

Fast-forward a few months later and I'm cleaning out my everyday bag and out drops the list, which is picked up by my wife and studied, as it's a list of women's names (including a few she recognizes, since she'd heard about past relationships).

"What is this?!?"
"uhhh.... all the women I've ever... kissed?"
"God you were a slut."
"I know. I feel awful about it now. [soft cow rumbles]"
