Pearl Jam was right.

Ticketmaster can suck it.

I went online at 10am SHARP(!!!) to try my hand at getting tickets to see my darling Bruce Springsteen. It did not end well.

I spent about 7 mins in some sort of weird internet lineup only to be offered the shittiest seats in the world for the low low price of $115.00. Each. $115.00. For seats at the back of the stadium on the balcony. This is about as far away from Bruce as one could get.

Now I don't know about you, but this girl isn't sleeping on piles of money. Scrooge McDuck, I am not. So $115 is a lot of money for me to shell out for a concert ticket. If I am going to pay that much for anything, it had better be fricking AMAZING. I simply can't justify dropping that much money on the worst seat ever. (Even though I love him. I would likely cry if I got to see him.)

So now I'm going to mope about it for the rest of the day, and curse the families of all those bastards on Craigslist who have already put their tickets up for sale for 3 times the original price. Fuckers.

It is a TRAGEDY!!!! I guess this means I'll just have to buy a greatest hits album and listen to it in the dark with a flashlight on that day. DISS.

Don't give up...I had nearly given up the hope of getting Spice Girls tickets despite winning the code in the lottery they held a couple of months ago that was supposed to entitle me to rad seats (it did not). By a fluke, or maybe even a miracle, I scored a row 22 floor seat last night---so maybe try again in a couple of weeks. They seem to release batches of tickets periodically.
