are you srue you didn’t mean to send this to someone else/.. ../?
((just kiddin’, thank yoou darling))
waste sell both seated tickets and general admission tickets. you need general admission tickets to get onto the floor because seated tickets are confined to whichever seat you happen to purchase. how early you want to line up depends on you.
Yeah, Gandhi was an unbelievably selfish individual. My biggest reason for losing respect for him, though, was that he criticized the Jews for defending themselves against the Holocaust — he insisted that they should have committed public mass suicide in order to “shame” the Germans instead of fighting back.
…. In order to shame the Germans? WTF? The Germans wouldn’t’ve been shamed - they’d’ve been thrilled to get their way so easily!
Gandhi’s exact words were: “But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs. As it is, they succumbed anyway in their millions.” He also wrote an open letter to the British people in 1940 telling them to surrender to the Axis even if it meant accepting genocide:
“I would like you to lay down the arms you have as being useless for saving you or humanity. You will invite Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini to take what they want of the countries you call your possessions. Let them take possession of your beautiful island, with your many beautiful buildings. You will give all these but neither your souls, nor your minds. If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes, you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourself, man, woman and child, to be slaughtered, but you will refuse to owe allegiance to them.”
he was also anti-black (lost all respect for him after reading how he treated sub-saharan africans).
read this. everyone needs to know gandhi’s “true colors”.
*blushes* thanx…. but ill probably be single forever. not even because no one wants me, but because i dont want any of the people who do and because my ability to handle relationships is virtually nonexistent
i’m as good at identifying “classical music” as i am at identifying any other kinds of music that i’m at least somewhat familiar with, i would say.
i mean, have you never downloaded a single radiohead album?
i know for a fact that some of the members of radiohead have bought unofficial bootleg merch themselves, so… y’know. i don’t imagine they care very much so it’s up to you, man. personally, i don’t buy unofficial merch but i don’t buy official merch either.
oh don’t worry at all, please, i like questions like this! it’s nice being able to talk about this stuff considering i spend literally hours every day doing it. i have 3 pieces i’m learning for a sort of “audition”:
there are a few other pieces i’m learning to play soon just for me:
and some more once those are finished. i also want to learn like spinning plates and a couple other radiohead tunes like fog (again) or last flowers or any of the other piano staples.
well, thank you… i guess what it comes down to is i care about radiohead and their ideals quite a lot so i do my best to try to give them and their fans a good name because they deserve it. it’s just about a love for a band, the lifestyle they unwittingly support, and my attempt at undertaking of it
i don’t really have one. you can check my last.fm to see other things that i listen to but even that isn’t the best representation. i basically listen to classical music, electronic music, and radiohead. with a big selection of various other things here and there according to mood.
just bought myself a ticket, so yes. any excuse to go to NYC
do what you want, man
couple months. it takes longer when you have to wait on other people to confirm things with you; if i were totally on my own it’d be a lot quicker but it’s also a lot less fun when you’re on your own.
did they really? because DAS says tickets will be refunded. hm. i think waste will look out for us, whether with refunds or a reschedule or either/or, so don’t worry. it’s still a little too soon for anyone to make any final decisions i think. give them time.
i dunno. it was just supposed to be a joke originally. it was everyone else that decided i was sort of uh, “unofficially official” if you will…
there are very rarely separate waste lines so there’s no disadvantage to having tm as far as that is concerned. i’d just use ticketmaster tickets like anyone else…
oh my god. i have a lot of qwuestions to answer. i will get to them tomorrow i promise. i was just on a bus for like 16 hours and im too tired to be alive. goodnight everyone
sam: goes out of her way to act as de facto W.A.S.T.E. customer support, out of the goodness of her own heart, and STILL gets a bunch of shit for it
it comes with the territory i guess…
not very. he probably sees me more than i see him, cos he’s like that.
i played classical guitar for like a year but then i kinda quit. i can still technically play i guess but it’d take a while for me to get good again.
i almost bought a cheap-o violin a few weeks ago on impulse just to learn some basics but i opted out in the end because i have too many things on my plate as it is, but i’d love to learn. the cello, too, except those motherfuckers are expensive as hell.
ask yr mom lmao
espeon or umbreon probably. what about u
i fucking adore chopin. he’s one of my favourite composers. his music is the pinnacle and very definition of “pianistic” but is manipulated in such a way that it transcends the physical instrument itself and becomes pure emotion. i haven’t come across many composers able to do this in the way he could. there are things expressed through his music that just can’t be put to words. one of his nocturnes even made me have a mental breakdown once (the good kind tho). i recently started to learn it even though it’s slightly above my skill level. it will take me months upon months to perfect but it’s honestly worth the hours of practice. there are things that i can express through his music that i can’t express in any other way. i’m so very eager to finish it, but i have to perfect my haydn and schumann and messiaen first.
eevee of course! because i am one!
i worry that i’ve been thanking people so often that it’s becoming devalued but i want to illustrate my gratitude to every person who is kind enough to show me theirs, so thank you, sincerely. i’m not really good at maintaining any kind of “internet persona” or any kind of persona, really. i’d probably be better off here if i could, but people with perfected internet personas can’t be trusted…
the entire situation at downsview is just extremely upsetting and the gravity of it didn’t sink in for me for a while, even though i was actually there. absolutely surreal and truly sad. like i keep saying though, we have to be grateful in a way that it happened the way it did because it could have been so much worse. it will help prevent this from happening again in the future, i would hope. all we can do now is look forward, be as positive as possible, and extend our thoughts and love to scott johnson’s friends and family.
yes!!!!!!!!!!!! (<— exciteed that someone asked me something not regarding radiohead)
yeah, but it’s okay - some people simply get upset when others are happy or confident and feel the need to destroy that. it’s a little sad but has more bearing on their personality than on mine. and thank you, a million times
oh no no no, thank you. it means quite a lot to hear this from so many people, really. if i didn’t want to help anyone out, i wouldn’t answer anyone’s questions but i really do try to answer most of them. sometimes i just don’t know what to say and don’t feel like i can be very helpful… but i try. so thank you very much, you and everyone else.
i feel like i should get “haters make me famous” tattooed across my forehead or something
:’) thank you
thank you so much my perfect little babe. that means a lot. i say this a lot but it’s always so surprising to me when people from my bobdylan- days are still sticking around because i don’t know if i would! but it really does mean a lot, seriously.
oh trust me, they don’t! that’s why i’m publishing all these questions now instead of answering them privately. :) but thank you so much. it is nice to know that some people do appreciate me cos my ego is more delicate than it seems. i appreciate all of you, too. thank you.
ohhh no love you didn’t piss me off at all, seriously. when i reblogged that post i was talking more to the second person and that general attitude i was objecting to than to you. don’t worry!
thank you sooo very much for all yr kind words, and please never be afraid to talk to me! a lot of people come up to me to tell me they just follow me on tumblr and i don’t mind it at all. as long as people are cool, i’ll be cool. i hope you had an amazing time your shows man!
thank you so much. i tried my best. it didn’t end up working out very well, but i hope at least people enjoyed their time queueing so the day wasn’t a total waste!
almost definitely. we’ll see, though.
i refreshed waste a lot. it is tricky because they don’t announce presale times but basically you have to stay up all night and never stop checking. that’s it, basically. if you have more questions please feel free to ask cos i will actually answer them
yes. it’s my fault people ask me stupid questions. i reply to about 50% of the questions people send me privately, and i publish the other 50%. i can’t reply to anons privately.
i have too many followers as it is, so feel free to leave.
oh my god……
i mean… i wouldn’t really know what i could do, but if i was ever given the opportunity i would take it without second thought. i would be sooo fucking good at whatever i had to do…
i wouldn’t say their positions are all basically filled, either, because things change a lot. i mean i’m not really qualified to do any of the filled positions anyway lol i’m not gonna be jonny greenwood’s guitar tech anytime soon. i should fucking work for waste though, for real.
i have a personal blog but it’s pretty personal and i don’t use it much or give it to anons. i know my blog is all radiohead right now but it isn’t always, i swear. at the moment it’s not really my choice what my blog is about since i’m just getting all these questions.
my blog is always all radiohead when i’m touring too but since that’s just over it should gradually even out…
