  1. So that German woman found her login to still be intact and can elaborate further in order for people not to be totally dependent on the rantings of two Scottish drunks Cologne had the problem that the venue was changed from Tanzbrunnen to Kulturkirche, from seated with guaranteed seats to GA. I was completely pissed off about that simply because it was a working day, and we were happy when we bought our front row seats so that meant we didn't have to take an additional holiday but could drive up to get there basically right for the show ...... this wasn't going to happen anymore so I compl
  2. I request it for every single show I attend, but I know it's never gonna happen
  3. Same here I guess. Thank God there is still England. No wait ..... that's not gonna help much is it
  4. It might very well become my new favorite Anglicism (or is it Americanism) ? Now if I only could get that image out of my head
  5. Oh sorry Atticus, I wasn't aware that my non-existent pouting was the reason for the LRS threads to not exist/be frequented anymore .... seeing as I only voiced my feelings from donkey's years ago today, but those threads apparently got "circle-wankey" - what a great word - quite a while ago, I assume you have been foreseeing the future then, huh. Next time just read my posts properly (as in: word after word after word) before you make weird illogical assumptions as to why certain threads might not be what they used to be anymore. Brianne, I can understand that you people also felt weird t
  6. Oh no, I never did Anf of course it's not negative at all, I think they serve great causes and make a group of people really happy. There was just a time where I felt really left out, and that doesn't only go for the shows themselves but also for the gatherings that come along with them ... and I know about some people who felt the same, maybe they just didn't want to speak out (like I just did) and become unpopular for feeling that way, although it can't be said loud enough that feeling left out/like missing out does NOT automatically mean those who are lucky every time should miss out too!
  7. I guess the explanation might also be that not so much the threads, but the Living Room Shows themselves are very much a circle wank, i.e. only available to a very limited circle of people, and speaking from my point of view, I can only guess that the vast majority of fans who had to miss out every time, due to not being able to splash out on 1) trip to the US including accomodation to be able to bid, 2) the show "entry" itself, and 3) another trip to the US including accomodation to attend the actual show, at some point just don't want to read about what they missed anymore. This is at leas
  8. Happy wedding and afterlife to the young couple
  9. Oh well. I guess I can't really complain when I count how often I have heard it live. Glad you had a good time at the Italian shows, Paul
  10. The best thing about the show were the aftershow drinks with a.m. people. I kid. I kid. Great show, with the definite highlight Laminated Kat for me. I especially liked how laid back the crowd was, and yet how much into the show. No annoying talking, no screaming, no exaggerated jumping around, a very enjoyable night all over. Might have convinced us to check out more shows in Belgium. Now back home for the usual stuff that can't be procrastinated, then off to Zurich.
  11. I loved reading everyone's stories My first encounter with Wilco couldn't have possibly been worse. They opened up for REM in Munich on July 13th, 1999. It was my first REM gig after years of waiting to be able to go, and needless to say, I just wanted them to finally start playing. The opener was the last thing to get in the way, so I hated them. I remember moaning to my exhusband - who was with me back then - all the time during Wilco's set "oh God they are terrible! I want them to go off stage! now!", and he replied "Jesus, just give that young poet there a bloody chance!" and me going o
  12. We've made 2 resolutions: 1. Do more exercise than what we are already doing (and bought the EA Active Sports 2 for Wii for the days we can't go outdoors) 2. Buy/build a house. 2 appointments with builders this week. Happy new year everyone!
  13. I loved reading all the stories! Marriage is a very important subject to me, I guess because my first attempt failed after 17 years due to the involvement of too much alcohol on his side... Still, I was a dare-devil and did it a second time, with someone I met through an REM message board but got close to during the Wilco European Spring Tour 2005 which I had to miss out on albeit having tickets, hotel reservations etc to ALL shows, due to an emergency surgery. That Cornish guy literally was the only person left to talk to, because everyone else I knew was having a blast at the Wilco shows
  14. .........care to make other fans happy ?
  15. As one of the people with front row seat tickets, I can rest your mind, because we were quite happy to race to the stage as soon as we realized the security wasn't gonna do anything about people filling in the gap It's nice to hear from so many sources (here, FB etc) that Berlin is being regarded as one of the best Wilco shows .... I have seen quite a few, but I caught myself saying to my husband right after the show "this might have been the best Wilco show ever". That might not exactly have been the case - who could tell anyway - but it surely was a memorable one. Bring on Brussels
  16. Well, people sitting down doesn't necessarily mean they won't talk during the songs (in Frankfurt there were 2 guys sitting right behind us, yapping away all the time, except the 4 or 5 times one of them went out to have a smoke) I think us Germans just aren't used to people immediately standing up from their seats as soon as the main act comes on stage, like I've been able to experience it many times in the US. It's a tricky situation, because if only a few people get up, they get in the way of those still sitting, and block their sight. So it's really up to the band to encourage everyone
  17. Enough said. I L-O-V-E it. I couldn't love it more than I do. I am floored. Didn't happen to me in a very very long time with any album by any band. Probably the last time with AGIB.
  18. Problem with this: For the first time ever, the German RS has released a magazine issue with two different covers. One with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers which is available at magazine stands, and one exclusively available to subscribers of the magazine. Sorry to everyone who I promised to grab a copy for, but I am unable to. And if I ever thought of subscribing to RS, this has so totally changed my mind now http://www.rollingstone.de/das-heft/aktuelle-ausgabe/article113575/Ab-morgen-am-Kiosk-Die-September-Ausgabe-2011.html (that's the disclaimer on their website where they announce this sh*t)
  19. Sorry but I just laughed out loud when I read your last post I know that was bad. Healing vibes to you
  20. All the best to the reason why we're all here (presumably ). May your life continue to be filled with creativity, great music, love & everything you wish for yourself. And thank you for everything.
  21. (Which summer are you talking about btw? Oh ..... the one that happened on August 1st this year in Germany, right. ) Apart from trying to stay as dry as possible when running to the car, and not get blown away by the daily rainstorms, we haven't really done much at home here. Our trip to Egypt in June was the only summer we had, with 50 degrees Celsius already at 10 am, and some mind-blowing experiences re: sightseeing. Other than that, Tara graduated and got engaged in July, so I guess you can call July "exciting"! I was also told (by our highest sales boss who came all the way down to
  22. Now I can die happy, knowing what that line means at last.
  23. WOW! Can't wait to see at least a 10th of those pictures! I might have to consult you, as we are seriously planning a US roadtrip for next spring
  24. Haha, you're not the only one that gets headaches from the Euro. Pretty much everyone in Europe is affected by it
