Some of You May Be Wondering...

How the Chicago NIN presale went for us.

A Maise and Iris Collaboration:

Perfect little scheme
The kind that screws scalpers
I got online at 5
So did Ro.
No one to blame
Always the same

RELOAD...IT'S FUCKED!

It took time...to make me realize,
It took time...to make me realize,
It took time...to make me realize,
It took time...FUCK, I'll NEVER SEE THIS SITE

Smashed up my monitor
Smashed up my new keyboard
Smashed up my computer desk
Smashed up my love for Trent

Smashed up my Slip CD
Smashed up Downward Spiral too...
Gonna smash the whole collection
I don't know what else I should do

Filled up with hope...got my credit card
Still cannot get to Music Today
Watching the site, thought I was in line,
Now watching it FAIL. the server's in a systematic decline
Oh the fans! Trent, you betray
If he gave me tickets, I'd throw them away
After everything I've spent, my husband asks "Aren't you done yet?"

Smashed up my monitor
Smashed up my new keyboard
Smashed up my computer desk
Smashed up my love for Trent

Smashed up my Slip CD
Smashed up Downward Spiral too...
Gonna smash the whole collection
I don't know what else I should do

I tried...
And I gave up
Ro tried...
And she gave up
Iris tried...
And she gave up...
We tried...
AND WE GAVE UP!!!!!

Smashed up my monitor

Throw the tix away!

Don't be so negative, friends. The public onsale is still coming up. All will be well.

maise said...

Says the person who already has tix to FOUR shows...ahem.

maise said...

But don't worry...our spirits aren't completely broken. We won't stop til we GET WHAT WE DESERVE.

Iris said...

Easy for someone who's already secured his tickets to say.

Though really, if we aren't able to get through it wouldn't be so terrible. Meeting the band and getting a hug from The Man at the last Chicago show isn't such a bad way to end things.

Iris said...

Four shows? FOUR SHOWS? Damn you Mr. BCB!

maise said...

Although everyone always says that Trent pays us, blah, blah, blah...so you know, if he'd like to comp us some tickets for all the shit we've had to deal with, I'd totally compromise my blogger integrity.

Isabel said...

For shame - sorry about that. Just a ray of hope, when my sister managed to score us tickets for Trent's warm-up comeback thing at the Astoria in 2005, he did add another date when they sold out so quickly. This could still happen.

It is a bit bad of him to sign off on twitter knowing what was going to happen though!

maise said...

LOL, unless he has a serial killer stalker after him behind the scenes, I have little doubt he shut down his Twitter precisely because he didn't want to hear the bitching.

It's probably for the best...he might have cancelled the Chicago shows out of spite.

The whole thing was pretty irksome...I don't mind losing tickets to people who are quicker on the draw, but because of a complete website meltdown? A meltdown that allows certain lucky bastards in anyway??? Something's gonna get broken!

But there's still the general sale, so not all hope is lost.

Isabel said...

Trent is crazy though - I'm sure he has a personal twitter account so I can just imagine him saying he's signing off but then lurking on twitter reading shit about him and getting more wound up! He totally focusses on the trolls.

I'm not getting worried about not seeing them again anyway as remember in 2007 he said the rock band formation has run its course - then in 2008/2009 he's back as a four-piece about as rock band as you can get. I don't think he can stay away from touring all that long.

Good luck in the public sales though!

I'm glad Isabel has come to her senses, I guess it was the punching a woman in her "fat titty" comment? Trent is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme in my eyes. Good luck girls, you'll need it w/your blind worship of a mentally ill middle-age man. I moved on long time ago to bigger and better things.

maise said...

Funny how the Anonymii are all above it and superior and have moved on, yet make time to comment on every single fucking thread we create.

Isabel said...

Anonymii - why does everything have to be so black and white for you? Can I not disagree with some of the things Trent says / does but still love the music??? And the 02 gig last Wednesday was AWESOME - and if you don't believe me, check out the review from The Times (which is a 'quality' British newspaper although some may disagree) - http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/music/article6716781.ece

Don't believe everything you read on twitter

Isabel said...

Nice deleting Maise, now I sound like a kind of fortune cookie

Anonymous said...

I love how you erased my last comment Maise. Poor Trent, won't be coming back to Twitter (as himself) *sad*cough*cough*weepy emo shit*

Two words: Telephoned Twitter.
too disruptive, labor costs to deal w/antics = not financially feasible, blah, blah... Boomerang.

Trent always underestimates people and thinks he's the only one with a "remarkable" life. Dumbass.

maise said...

Well, "Sunshine," I'll have you know I did NOT erase your last comment, but I can't say that I miss it.

JR said...

I'm with Sunshine. This is boring.

Sunshine, what's on the horizon? What's new and hot that people don't know about yet?

maise said...

Oh good, JR, I'm glad you're on the side of the one who thinks I'm apparently a "dumb cunt" for no real reason that I can discern. I didn't steal his/her prom date, didn't run over his/her puppy, nor did I tape over his/her wedding video with fetish porn.

Yes, I want to hear ALL ABOUT what this person thinks is important.

JR said...

Don't hate.

maise said...

Yes, God forbid the Anonymi feel unwelcome here.

Isabel said...

So have you managed to try for tickets yet?
