Work is a *****. Sold them for $25 above what I paid. Time is money and dicking around with guy that bought them took 45mins, which is worth way more than $25 today.

Like paying $80,000,000 for an NFL QB...if someone is dumb enough to pay it more power to the seller...

You don't get it. You made it not worth your time by looking to make a buck off someone. You sell them for face on here to someone you know, you don't have to meet them in person for the flash transfer because you don't mistrust them... easy.

But this is a cultural/music scene thing. I believe that many people at that show last night don't go to many shows, in general, and there is no sense of community in the metal scene. Small wonder why Maynard is known to dislike his fans.
:D

Andy isn't a music dude... he doesn't get it. It's easy for me to forgive that type.

No, its not that I don't get it. You and I dont agree, so according to you, I'm wrong - welcome to American pal, we all don't think or act the same way. I made $25 bucks on $225 worth of tickets, to drive and meet I guy and take time out of my day.

Just to provide you a little background - My wife and I had full plans on going, until the time I posted the tix for sale (like 1pm yesterday) - when I realized I wouldn't be able to make it due to work. Had I wanted to make a buck, I would've listed them on stub hub for $300 a ticket or tried selling them for a hell of a lot more, long before 7 preshow. I've seen Tool nearly every-time they come through Colorado since Red Rocks in 1998. My wife loves APC and we've seen them once. Theres been numerous time I've purchased 4 tix, and sold 2 of them at face, just because tix get scalped so bad. Figure not everyone can get tickets in the 4 mins they're available, so buy extras and pass it on.

Great elitist attitude!:thumb: Sorry Im not a "music dude" I do enjoy music and go to a few shows as I can. This year my wife and I saw Manson and Slipknot at Pepsi, Brother Ali, Atmosphere at redrocks. Deftones, Slayer, Breaking Benjamin, Alice in Chains last few years and tons of shows in my younger years at the bluebird, ogden and fox in boulder, even some techno/house (before the word EDM caught on) at the Church, The Root (anybody ever go to Synergy in the 90's?). I wish I could go to more smaller non huge bands but I have to pick and choose. When I was younger, I had more time than money. No I can afford to go to any show I want but the time isn't there. I got 2 tix last year to Garth, but work got in the way again so my wife and her sister went, same with Gary Allen in Loveland in August, but my wife and friends went, just ate the ticket. I love going to Austin to sit, drink and listen to music by bands I've never heard of and might not again (and the salt lick and breakfast taco place aint bad either).

If being a "music guy" and "getting it" requires attitudes like those, I don't want to be either.

I love maynard solely because he gives no duh at all whatsoever and he supports music from big time metal bands that fill amphitheaters to bands that play shitholes like 7th circle (small warehouse ran by punks off 5th and federal). I am a latecomer to the tool train, 10000 days made me appreciate them a lot and from there I delved deeper into their discography. I'd go fishing with him and drink his overpriced wine...

you enjoy metal music, tangler? here I thought you were a hipster fly fishing ******* that was friends with chuckphlegm. I say hipster fly fishing ******* with a sense of endearment...

i don't think it's an elitist attitude. it's the fact they appreciate the music a lot and seeing a band as talented as tool is something that is almost once in a lifetime, and most people don't appreciate that.

being someone who's literally been to probably 300+ shows big and small.... you kinda learn to appreciate music, especially when you are in a crowd of likeminded people who get it.

for example.. this summer, when I went to the "psycho las vegas" festival, it was a blast because for 4 days I was immersed in a few genres of music, with a hundred bands that played just about 24 hours a day in 3 venues. i paid 500 bucks for my girlfriend and I.. and it was worth every penny. what I loved about it was not just the music... it was the fact that members of big name and underground bands were literally part of the crowd. people like phil anselmo, pepper keenan, matt pike... all were in the audience watching bands or in the casino bar pounding beers/smoking bowls with people. my girlfriend got to meet alice cooper's bassist who was drunk, walking around and thanking people for checking out their set. plus I met and chilled with people from all over the world who flew into the US for this festival. I'm already anxiously awaiting for them to announce dates for PLV17 so I can get my room.
