and i was kidding about the hee haw part, i always add that when i rant cuz it wouldn't surprise me if someone added that cuz it makes about as much sense as mee maw and paw paw.


Yeah, that's why I asked "seriously?!", since it seems like something somebody in the South would actually do. "Aww shit, our parents have been through so many divorces, what's little Jim-Bob going to call his new grandpa?" "How's about Hee Haw?" "Yeah, that's good thinkg Billy Ray!"

I don't know how good it is, but progarchives.com seems to generate a lot of interest.

Oh, I thought they had. But now that I think about it, I was just thinking of all those rumours around the time of the Vertigo Tour about how "OMG U2 WILL PLAY FENWAY!!!"

I don't think I ever claimed to be a venues expert. That can be Ian, who didn't call me out on the point. : passesthebuck :

Yeah, it never materialized.

If it works out though, I could see it for 2009. They are the last major touring act not to hit the Fens.

I've never really even looked there. The format of the site in general has put me off using it as a resource. It just seems clunky.

Yeah, I think the site looks awful. Someone get them a web designer.

But a glance at the forums shows a ton of posts, so who knows.
