    No, probably next year, but Im not going to use my money on that. I would rather spread it around a few shows in Europe instead. If they played Primavera I am sooo there.

    Why in the world would the play Primavera? Or more accurately, why in the world would Primavera suddenly start booking bands even remotely the size of Radiohead?

    Yeah, pretty sure Radiohead is a little too big now for Primavera.

    Well I think its shaping up to be crossing me off the maybe list for this year and put me on the definite list for 2013. Looks like I'm going to have to buy a new car real soon and the money I was saving for this going to have to go to that. Here to hoping I win the lottery.

    For me, it all depends on whether or not I manage to score a ticket on Oct.3 If I do then I'm slotting myself into the Definite category.

    The only trouble with Foo's at Glastonbury is ever since the Pearl Jam/Roskilde deaths, Eavis hasn't booked heavy/grunge type acts as headliners. He said some years ago that was his policy, I don't know for sure whether that still stands.

    Also just another reminder for the folks who are in the maybe category or are not sure about finances... it looks like they are running things a bit differently this year (running all tickets on the deposit system instead of just making it an option).

    So on Oct 3 you will need 50GBP per ticket... (assuming you also pay the 5 GBP processing fee at that point, so probably 55 GBP or about 85 USD). The remaining 145 GBP is not paid for several months (April for UK folks, and between Feb 25-March 3 for international).

    IF you pay the deposit but do not pay the remainder, they will refund all but 10 GBP. So while you're trying to convince your friends think of it as a potential $15 per ticket loss in order to secure a ticket in case you can go.

    Chewed gum wall in US is world's 2nd most unhygienic tourist attraction
    From ANI

    London, Sep 25: Containing an estimated one million pieces of chewed gum (and an unknown quantity of dried saliva), a wall in USA is considered one of the world's weirdest tourist attraction.


    A recent poll has revealed the world's most unhygienic tourist attractions.

    Landing second place in Tripadvisor's 'World's Germiest Attractions' rundown, the 50-foot long Pike Place Market wall in Seattle, USA, is covered from floor to ceiling in colourful gum.

    Beaten only by Ireland's famous Blarney Stone, which visitors kiss in hope of acquiiring the gift of the gab, the Seattle local landmark has slowly accumulated more and more pieces of chewed gum since the turn of the century.

    "It stretches at its most concentrated area for around 50 feet and is about 15 feet high," the Daily Mail quoted Jamison Johnson, a local musician and artist who has documented the growth of the wall.

    "It was cleaned up twice, but in 1999, Seattle realised that it was like California's famous Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo and left it alone.

    "Since then people flock here to get married, leave their own piece of gum or to even make a small art work or a message of love or peace," he said.

    Celebrating over ten years of continual evolution and growth, the Seattle gum wall last year found itself basking in new found infamy.

    "When TripAdvisor.com named it the second most germiest tourist attraction in the world, people just swelled in numbers coming to see the wall.

    "I suppose it is a little unhygienic, especially when we are all obsessed with clean hands and swine flu, but it's only supposed to be fun," Jamison added.

    Here's the list of the filthiest and unhygienic tourist attractions:

    1: The Blarney Stone, Ireland

    Kissed by an unquantifiable number of would-be politicians and salesmen

    2: Seattle Gum Wall, USA

    Encrusted with chewing gum

    3: Oscar Wilde's Tomb, France

    Smeared with the lipstick of a huge number of 'artistic' teenagers

    4: St Mark's Place, Venice

    Infested by a vast flock of filthy pigeons hoping for a free meal

    5: Grauman's Chinese Theatre, USA

    Its oft-touched hand prints are no cleaner than any other stretch of pavement.

    6: Karni Mata Rat Temple, India

    The clue is in the name. Bare feet are mandatory for visitors.

    7: Friendly Monkey Valley, Korea

    The monkeys are friendly. That doesn't make them clean.

    8: Glastonbury Festival, England

    The Bronze Age conditions of the festival toilets are the stuff of legend

    9: 'Any Children's Ball Pool'

    A bit of a cheat this, but those colourful balls harbour all manner of grime

    10: CBGB's toilets, USA

    The original Punk Rock haunt flies the flag for filthy rock club loos the world over.

    Hey, I'm registering along with my S.O. so put us down in the maybe category. We'll certainly know by the balance date if we are definite. And we'll certainly need everyone's advice since we'll be complete newbies to Glastonbury. I'm actually travelling on Oct 3rd and will be in the central time zone so 9am There = 3am Central to get the deposits in, correct?

    Assuming their server remains stable and works as intended.

    It took us a solid 8 hour workday of refreshing and hoping last year to get tickets.
