IO: Pearl Jam was Right!

Ticketmaster are a greedy, evil, ugly, dispicable, gross monopoly. I'd go straight to the box office from now on, but guess what? They're closed. No way to get tix unless you go through Ticketmaster, who then charges $10 conveneince fee per tikcet, and this is what kills me: $4.95 Service Fee. Are you fucking kidding me?

I these quotes from my friends...

"Well, Ticketmaster charges a small, nominal fee for concerts here in the States... So if the ticket was $15 at face value, the total ticket price after TM's charges is somewhere around $350."

"Fuckin' Ticketmaster can shove their $13.50 service fee up their ass. How you like that service, bitch?"

I'm not sure, but it involves my ass and a lack of consent.

Burns: [chuckles] And to think, Smithers: you laughed when I bought TicketMaster. "Nobody's going to pay a 100% service charge."

Smithers: Well, it's a policy that ensures a healthy mix of the rich and the ignorant, sir.
