    I actually blocked off a 'meeting' on my work calendar at 12PM Friday so no one interrupts me when I'm buying tickets!

    the shows are on sale on Friday. pretty sure that there won't be any hard tickets for it, so that hurts the scalper market considerably.

    OH. MY. GOD. How did I miss this news yesterday?

    This show seems booked especially for my birthday weekend!!! And I'm going to be in LA with friends, anyway, so I'll now be driving the shit out that rental car to get up north and see the Purple One.

    Please, god, let tomorrow's ticket frenzy go halfway smoothly. I'll be in airports 'til 10 or so, so we'll have to get our asses to the hotel quickly and find a computer. My laptop is shit right now. I am going to be a nervous wreck until then but holy shit this is so exciting!!!

    Someone I know said today in fb "I'm not giving that homophobe any of my money."



    "Yeah he's a recent convert to Jehova's Whitness and remarked that "gay marriage is wrong". Nope, not a cent from me."

    I cant stand gays where EVERYTHING is an issue to them. His loss.

    Yea that 'homophobe' thing was really taken out of context. (Not that I think his actual comments were right, but come on). I can't find the actual quote anymore but it was more along the lines of saying he just follows what the bible teaches (him) and that he didn't believe it was right (for him) but also said that he thinks some churches/religion read more into scripture than is there. (Meaning, he doesn't think the bible is against it).

    Let's face it: no matter what he believes, he is pretty hard core into his religion, and he probably would not oppose church policy to the media; and secondly, it makes a much more controversial story to make it seem like Prince hates the gays, whereas a story where Prince was neutral towards or supported gay marriage would just have people saying, 'wait, isn't Prince gay?'

    FWIW the JW church has a weird stance on the matter, they think homosexuality is wrong but recognize that a person is born with their sexual preference. I guess you're just supposed to, I don't know, not have sex? Please.

    pretty sure that just makes him a homophobe.

    doesn't really matter whether the dude gives him money though... someone is gonna.

    i don't care about that stuff, but i'm not gonna lie... it kinda blows my mind that prince is this huge. if you would have asked me 10 years ago i never would have thought he'd still sell shows like this. but i'm kinda dumb about this stuff, so whatever.

    Seriously, that's gonna happen on Tues. It has to.

    Makes me weary about buying tickets for M/W. On one hand, I have a good sized group extremely down to go. But, as usual, they slack and I buy tickets. But in the case of Prince, I actually can't let them wait.

    But if he does a 'secret' show on Tues, then they can go fuck themselves because that's where I'll be. Because I'm selfless like that.

    Either way I dont care. Its not like he preaches about it in his songs or is actively trying to stop gays from having rights etc. Obviously not everyone is going to be on "our" side. Its really not a big fucking deal. This same person on facebook was also upset because Justin fucking Bieber said in an interview that being gay is a choice. WHO THE FUCK CARES

    I had a crazy nightmare about being unable to get Prince tickets due to the TM website being re-designed to NOT include any "find tickets" link, and when I tried a phone order, a scary dog snatched my phone, started chewing on it, and tried to bite me any time I tried to take it back. Then I tried to go to a TicketMaster outlet, which turned out to be in the Greyhound station, and there was a self-service machine that didn't work because someone had smeared jam into the credit card reader.

    if he does the warfield, he would probably do the standard ticket procedure he has done in the past. 2 ticket max with TM and all tix at will call. pickup with id and you have to go straight in. but we will have to see how these shows sell and i think they will do very well and maybe he will add more.

    regardless we get a minimum of 2 shows next week with the Purple one! fucking epic!!
