These days? Any moron with a credit card can get a shot at the lottery. Any moron. And that included the dozens of friends and family and co-workers that you bribed to help get Phish tickets. Is that a "dick thing to do" or are you simply utilizing all potential weapons at your disposal? Buy a ticket and take the ride.
Alas, the day of reckoning is upon us. How many phans will win the lottery by Midnight tonight? How many lucky fuckers will hook up with a golden ticket to Red Rocks?
During the first leg of summer tour, I was virtually shut out. After 151 Phish shows (at the time before the three at Hampton), I managed to score three tickets to Burgettstown. And they were lawn seats too. Once that happened, I knew that I was doomed on this summer tour and had to pray that my friends scooped up extras against the scalpers, brokers, bots, and other miscreants who gobbled up Phish tickets then sold them at 10x face value.
Alas, I'm not keeping my hopes up high... with mail order/lottery and the looming Ticketbastard fiasco which will unfold this weekend.
So, my advice to all Phisheads? Start hording cash to buy extras from faux-fans raping their fellow heads or from nameless faceless dickless brokers who loathe the entire Phis community. If they had an inkling of love, they'd just charge face valueand take the extra bonus karma points that came there way.
FYI... cash or kind trade for your extras!
