Today is not one of those days. I just booked the time off work, paid for my flights, etc. I'm trying to find somewhere to stay in Miami. I want to know where all my money is going. As a loyal customer who is constantly billing this festival as "the best thing ever", I just want to see some news, some word that everything is fine (even though I'm sure it must be, we are yet to be disappointed). It's a dead zone around here. No one is coming here to post or chat... hell I'm not even talking about the cruise to my friends anymore because there's nothing to report. I guess I'm just feeling a little deflated about it... I want my 70K tons of boner back.
Although I agree with some of Slaytanic Erik's points he made on a recent post on the Bridge forum, I agree perhaps more with your sentiments above, Jake. Sorry, all, for joining in on the naysaying, and perhaps me doing so is totally inappropriate considering I'm not going on 70K or Barge (although I made that decision a few months ago prior to the long dead, dry spell).
Anyways, my feelings about UMC are a bit deflated to say the least....and my metal travel focus has strongly changed course to getting back to Europe sometime in the next few years - either for the Wacken cruise (regardless of line-up) or some other on-land fest.
On a positive note, Jake - your new Viathyn album cover is beautiful!! Really love the artwork!
