Dream Theater / Re: If YOU were writing the se...
Last post by MetropolisWatches - July 22, 2024, 06:34:42 PM
My wishlist of songs for the upcoming MP reunion tour:

- The Glass Prison (perhaps even as part of the entire AA suite)
- Hell's Kitchen + Lines in the Sand or Trial of Tears
- In the Presence of Enemies (pt. 1 + 2) or The Ministry of Lost Souls
- Octavarium
- Surrender to Reason or The Bigger Picture
- Space Dye Vest (probably a long shot with MP back in the group)
- Status Seeker or Light Fuse and Get Away (also very unlikely)

- You Not Me  ;D


- I'm also cool with Pull Me Under and The Spirit Carries On being retired (for now)

Quote from: cramx3 on July 22, 2024, 04:08:08 PMMost I've paid was $280, Metallica, Cage the Elephant and Greta Van Fleet in Atlanta.  My seat did come with unlimited food and beer/wine which easily made up for at least $100 if not more based on what I drank and ate that night to try and get my money's worth.  But also I've paid $250 a couple times for shows I really wanted to see.  That seems to be my max and only for the most worthy shows for me.  I'm sure I'll spend more at some point, especially as things just generally get more expensive.

You in the front row?  That's wild to me. I actually am having second thoughts about attending solely because I saw $15 lawn tickets on stubhub and if it goes under 10, I'm in lol Obviously the lawn is a vastly different experience, but 1G is a lot unless it's really good seats which is hit or miss a PNC.  Regardless, looks like you are all locked in for a good time tomorrow  :metal

We are stage right,not sure how far back but these tix were selling out fast. Every time I tried to check out we got a message saying choose other seats, unavailable. We bought tix directly through the venue. Tickets, tax, parking adds up. Like I said though, 3 tickets. If you go send me an email if you want to meet, that would be awesome.

Quote from: Snow Dog on July 22, 2024, 02:37:24 PMHaving a three- and five-year-old myself, I've discovered a truth, at least in my current existence, about life with small children:

Family/kids
Work
Housekeeping
Social life
Self care

Pick 3.  Maybe 3 1/2.

Currently wondering if/how this algorithm will change as they get older.
Haha fuck!

Social life is mostly there, but I am also a homebody and I am good with that. Getting better on self-care, just doing it when they go to sleep. Housekeeping has been a huge re-learning process with the kids, and I try to teach the oldest how to do things. Youngest follows her lead and is learning naturally, so that is nice.

Quote from: Stadler on July 21, 2024, 02:03:28 PMInteresting... other that No. 1, which is an all-time top five for me (any band):

1. Clutching At Straws
2. Misplaced Childhood
3. Brave
4. Season's End
5. Marbles

Afraid of Sunlight is probably 6 or 7, with Fugazi the other one.

We are not too different. I would go:

1. Clutching at Straws
2. Misplaced Childhood
3. Seasons End
4. Brave
5. Afraid of Sunlight

Although on certain days Holidays in Eden will protest its 5th spot...

Quote from: ProfessorPeart on July 22, 2024, 05:09:38 PMYeah. For years I just did the 'whoever answers the phone in the call center' thing. When I switched, I sat down with the guy 1 town over who has an office there. Best thing I ever did. I have learned so much about insurance. He does my home and auto. Every year around this time we sit down for an hour or so and go over everything and talk about any changes that might be needed.


Huh. I've never talked to an insurance agent, ever, as far as I can remember. I'm not sure I've ever called an insurance company. My auto has been the same since I was 16, and when I bought my home I used them as well. I don't even recall how I signed up for everything.
