Whatever happened to the days when you could just line up for tickets for things? Then all of us dedicated dudes with nothing better to do could stand by for hours before an event, instead of fighting with who-knows-how-many scalper bots and refresher-button-hitting office workers? From Twitter and our comments section, it sounds like barely anyone got tickets to the big free fest in Prospect Park in May (save for our own Tom Sullivan. Maybe he’ll take you??). The GoogaMooga folks are acknowledging how much of a Kraftwerk-like disaster this thing has been since the free tix became available at noon, and they’re Facebooking: “If you had trouble registering today, we’re doing our best to take care of you! Email us at email@example.com,” but we’re not sure what that means, as most of us landed on the waitlist for the event.

Meanwhile, an Anti-Googamooga twitter account has sprung up, naturally. So did anyone out there actually get through? It’s kinda amazing how entitled people feel to tickets to a free event, huh?

Remember the days of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe? Neither do we, but we’d love to find out more. We aren’t as smart as Doc so rigging up the ol’ DeLorean might be a tall order. We can’t even ask grandma ever since she overshared about that one time with grandpa at the sock-hop. If you […]
When we first checked in on Robin Grearson’s project to try to tally up the debt that 3rd Ward owed teachers and students and members, she had guesstimated that the total would come out to somewhere between $20,000 and $50,000. Well, if you were betting on it, you should have taken the over, because Grearson’s […]
