    I could live with that. At least it smells like something other than death. I might even partake if in the right mood. And if nothing else would make for cool pics.

    I agree to have it smoke free in Beleros and its not a hard thing to step ouside and grab a smoke in that area.
    I am sure that is what gave me my bad headache last year on the last night and this cruise I just avoided the area due to it getting too smoky too early in the night. :cry:

    Does anyone else get bummed out when they see members of a band they really like smoking? Specifically I think Atheist, Coroner and My Dying Bride. I'm like, "really", all that talent and your fucking it up with smoking?!?!?!

    Shit like that boggles the mind :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    I've known a few who smoke partly for what it does to your voice, if that's the effect they're going for. I mean, the unfortunate part is that it catches up with you in the end, so it still saddens me.

    It's like a guitarist carrying his guitar by the strings and letting it drag on the ground. Only he can't by a new one. Completely insane.

    Kobi from Orphaned Land smoking in my face after that Spectrum set was a little off-putting, but, so be it.

    I'm pretty sure the only reason why Chrigel from Eluveitie is such a powerful growler is because he smokes like four packs a day.

    And Korpiklaani's vocalist smoking whilst singing on the pool deck last year was awesome.

    Smoking was so fucking bad in the spectrum we actually dreaded and avoided it if possible. I remember having to leave during vicous rumors 2nd set bc I couldn't take it anymore and was going to puke.

    I wish they would just have smoking outside on a designated part of the ship, with some sort of cover if the weather gets bad. As a nonsmoker, it really does bother me when it is so smokey in an enclosed area. I am from IL, and we don't even have smoking in bars anymore, so I guess I am simply not use to it when I have to be around it as you normally only see people smoking outside. It made attending shows much more enjoyable and was probably the only good thing an Illinois governor has done in a while. :? Now when I am around it, it really does bother me right away. I wish that wasn't the case. I avoided Boleros for most of the cruise because of it.

    hahaha I love when korpi has a small instrumental break. Its smoke break time, same thing the first and probably only time Ill see Tarot live. One of the members started smoking and everyone else was all :shock: :shock: ... :smoking: :smoking:

    Amazes me how Marco can still push out those vocals with how much he drinks and smokes.

    Yeah, I had to leave the preparty early because I couldn't deal with the smoke in there. That was terrible.

    Spectrum and Boleros didn't bother me, but I'm still sick (a week later) and I guess I contribute it to the smoke.


    Also, the cigarette feat of the cruise was Empuu from Nightwish power-smoking an entire cigarette in about 15-20 seconds during the pool stage show. I doubt anyone but my cabinmates and I saw this (we were standing next to the 'strobe light'(?) fixtures and the Empuu smoking break was directly underneath us, but he didn't waste a single millimeter of that cigarette. I was actually very, very impressed.

    Speaking of smoking, a coworker and friend of mine who smokes had a heart attack today and was sent to the hosptital via helicopter (we're in a rural area) :cry:. He's in stable condition, but will have to have bypass surgery on 5 arteries in a couple of weeks. I hope he's okay. I will try and visit tomorrow, though I'm not sure it's a very good idea to visit him in a fragile state with my current nasty cold. Guess a mouth cover is in order.

    Five guys has taken Chicago and the surrounding suburbs by storm as well. They seem to be popping up all over the place. Anything is better than Mc Donalds. However if anyone is in Chicago, be sure to check out Kuma's Corner, the metal burger place. Great burgers, named after bands and a good beer selection. Metal and meat can't be beat!

    Also, not metal burger place, but Smoke Daddy's is good, too. It is a true smoke house, but their burgers are amazing. Both places server relatively late so if you are seeing a show in Chicago, it is worth going afterwards for a good meal and a beer. :cheers:

    I too have never smoked a day in my life, but I am fine being around smokers. I liked the fact tha people had the freedom to do whatever they want. Just because we don't like something doesn't mean that we should ruin something for others. :metalguy:

    Not a fan of smoking at all...and the Boleros did indeed smell like shit because of it...but I grew up with smoking parents, so maybe I can tolerate it a bit better...but I still hate it...less smoking == better for everybody...especially on a damn ship, where you can step out anytime and light up...

    If you're asking me a question than the aswer is "no," there's alot worse than smoking cigarrettes. It bums me out when I find out a band uses herion or blow, because that actually ruins a band. Cigarrettes didn't ruin bands like Coroner or Atheist. I'm a non smoker, but I'm all for smokers' freedooms.

    Well sure by comparison it's worse. Smoking is just a ridiculous health hazard or epic proportions that I don't believe in any freedom in doing it.

    It is when you FORCE others into your idea of what is "right". I hate smoking, but I would never limit anyone's freedom just because it makes me uncomfortable.

    It's a lost cause now anyway because too many people are willing to give (really have already given) up other people's freedoms for their own selfish reasons.

    You are so right, which is why I was extending this olive branch to all the non-smokers. It is selfish to run all the non-smokers out of the place where all the fun is.

    This is why I think our family would be a lot happier if we just took it to Kevin's cabin and smoked in there.

    If we can end smoking in the Spectrum and Boleros by moving it to your cabin Kevin, everyone would be much happier. Don't be selfish.

    I'm fine with a compromise. If we want to make a smokers lounge, go ahead, but please set up the running order so I am not forced to go into the Spectrum to see a band I paid to see. If I have to go see one of the bands that only plays in the Spectrum, I am then forced to smoke by being around all that secondhand nonsense. Ruins my freedom to not smoke.

    Absolute freedom for everyone is too destructive anyways. People can't behave ;)

    I'm never there, so if that's the compromise that needs to be made, I'll take one for the "Clear Lungs Team" :headbanger: :lol: :headbanger:
