    Default Bumblebee's Hive of Irrelevant Factoids

    Bumbles, please direct all of your useless, stupid "facts" here.

    If you aren't sure which of your posts should go here, here's a clue: all of them. Every stupid, irrelevant to the discussion at hand fact can go here.

    Feel the need to cite random concert ticket sales? Here!

    Feel the urge to post a fact about a festival in a thread discussing a different festival entirely? Right here, baby.

    Artist shoe size? THANK GOD WE HAVE YOU TO LET US KNOW, POST IT HERE.

    I'm reminded of the Michael Jackson show in NYC back in 2001 that was shot for a big prime time TV special. Britney appeared at the show but got nuked from the TV version because of an HBO contract. The MJ show was re-aired prime time on network tv a couple months later where they made a big deal about the exclusive Britney clip.

    Watching Colbert last night you could see that deep down he was seething about the situation even if he stayed in character. I doubt MTV or the head of viacom was thrilled about some of the stuff he said, but also know they screwed him around.
    In breaking, relevant news: other artists have or have not performed on television shows because of contractual issues!

    Nothing contractual could have stopped Colbert from shooting a piece with Daft that could have aired in a couple weeks.

    His Beatles Sullivan line was sloppy fact checking.

A dozen other Euro fests do the same with their headliners. It is a unique trait of Euro events that US festivals only do on extremely rare occasions.

    Or are you just playing grammar police because you have nothing to say on the content?

    The Beatles had an exclusive deal with Sullivan. The 4 of them never appeared in person on any other US tv show.

    This completely undercuts the point Colbert was trying to make, parody or not.

    Colbert had a contract for the past month with Daft for some kind of appearance. Nobody has claimed Daft have any firm agreement with MTV, in fact the contrary. Also, who ever claimed any lawyer was involved?

    Did Colbert also have a contract with Henry Kissinger? Do late night shows usually write contracts to book guests?? Inquiring minds need to know.

    The great thing about the internet is that it allows people like Stupidbee to think they're the experts on everything by reading something that someone typed into the internet, whilst erasing any ability to utilize the logic portion of their frontal lobe.

    "Promoters will insist. A stadium tour with LA will makes significantly more sense budget wise than one without no matter what GV offers for the festival. Plus those dates have to be a 6-8 weeks after Coachella to ensure nice weather in many parts of the US.

    The only major US tours off the top of my head that skipped LA was Madonna in 1993. Don't think Tom Waits has played a full LA show since 1999."

    Lol

    Spending a nauseating amount of time coming up with annoying factoids to support one's claims that end up being true is ironic?

    it's ironic that the "factoid" he came up with wasn't irrelevant at all. It was quite the opposite

    He didn't accurately predict anything. He/she threw out about six dozen different scenarios over a four month period, including the Stone Roses and Blur co-headlining, and gave no amount of certainty to any of it.
