Ticketmaster is fucking terrible - it is saying concert tickets are $94, but when I got to check out, they are charging me $200 per ticket! by NChSh in Music

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Ticketmaster kind of designed to be a scapegoat so people don't take it out on the performers and venues?

Isn’t American Idiot about people who blindly follow the media without thinking for themselves?

Don't stop and don't compare yourself to others!

Every single time you pick it up you will be a bit better than before, a little more free, a little more expressive.

You're learning a language and it will take some time, but once you can "speak" a sentence of your own you can start writing poetry!

Spotify will refund this month if you contact them about the Drake spam. by Schwagschwag in Music

Welp. They called my bluff and I just canceled my subscription. I've been meaning to try out Apple Music anyway.

Edit: damn. My top rated comment is about playing chicken with a customer service team. It’s been 6 hours and the only feature I’m missing is casting to my Echo devices. But I guess that’s what Bluetooth is for.

Nick Kroll once described his looks:

“He looks like a California raisin fucked the devil.”

From a utilitarian standpoint Joe Jackson did the right thing. The amount of joy that family brought people as a result of abuse far far far outweighs the abuse. This is an argument for why utilitarianism is stupid.

The Smiths - There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - [Jangle Pop] by flinnerjon in Music

[–]wordserious 487 points488 points  (0 children)

Once in the 80s I was driving my then-girlfriend home, late at night- more like very early before the Sun. We passed in front of a 24 hour pharmacy and she yelled, "here here I need to get something!"

The pharmacy was on the other side of the street, so I gave a quick look at my mirror, and turned sharp left. As the car was crossing the street I saw some sort of light pass quickly through all my mirrors, left to right. As I stepped on the breaks in the parking lot, I heard a loud crash, but I didn't feel it had anything to do with me.

She rushed into the store, and I went to see what the noise was. I saw a bus nicely inserted into a restaurant. Thankfully due to the hour, the bus was empty and the restaurant was closed. The bus driver was stuck inside the bus, because he couldn't get the doors to work. He was screaming something, so I got closer to hear what he needed and to help if I could.

I quickly realized that he was mad at me, for some reason. As it turns out, he had been passing me and was on my blind spot when I turned. He turned sharp right to avoid me and hit the restaurant. I talked to him briefly and we came to the conclusion that it had been nobody's fault- or maybe we were both to blame; I turned an unexpected left, he was going way too fast.

My girlfriend left the store completely oblivious to all that had transpired, I had to tell her what was going on. We went on home, and the neighborhood creates all sorts of stories about the young couple who had been fighting in a sports car and caused an accident. Yeah, we were young, but there was no fight and the car was a very boring Chevy Monza.

Anyway, from that day on I think of that when I hear "And if a double-decker bus crashes into us, to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die..." I haven't seen the girl in a long time, I don't live in the same city, everything is changed and I'm married to the woman I love, but when I hear Morrissey sing "take me out... tonight..." I am instantly transported to that pharmacy parking lot.

EDIT: TL;DR: was almost hit by bus; made connection with Smiths song; decades later stranger gave me gold (profit!!) thank you!
