SO Sorry I checked out there. Work, work, work and more work which is normal this time of year but.. then an 'unexpected shift in responsibilities'. Business analyst, system analyst, a little bit of old time mainframe dev, and now the project manager too. More with less. How fun.
kdogg can you stick around for a few days? Mike D? Can we go back over to the rules thread and resolve a few hot topics (like getting rid of that null vote crap ). Not limiting too but would want these gents involved in any changes. As I recall Mike had a big post with proposed verbiage. Need to go back and reread.
Then if there is interest I'd enjoy reffing what I previously called the anti-up game. In that anyone that signs up to play MUST agree to: 1) Participate - not check in once a day or every two days - consistent presence.. if you don't have time right now, don't sign up 2) Contribute - actively post - throwing a bone out there.. no less than 2 posts of substance per round - substance means comment on game play, theory, voting patterns, questions regarding game play.. 'could I', 'could they', 'would they', 'how do you track votes'... anything other than 'There's nothing to go on at this point' <--- there's something to go on from the first vote! It may be totally wrong but ... 3) Have fun - IT"S A GAME! If you are not playing, you're hurting the town. How many have read El-D 's gansta' rappa' games. OMG funny. Build a persona and have fun with it regardless of role. 4) Penalties for not meeting the agreement - something meaningful and fun like beers at roo ?
Throwing it out there. The game seems to have taken a not good turn to silence and MIA's.
I do want a Neil solo show at Roo, though. I'd love to see that happen.
I would love to see that happen. I was lucky enough to catch one of his solo shows and it was really amazing. I think it would be an excellent Friday or Saturday sun down set on the Which. Crazy Horse headlining Fri or Sun would be awesome.
I feel like it is going to be a really awesome lineup this year. Don't get me wrong, I had an incredible time as usual, but there were some artists left off the card that I thought would be there last year that I think could make it on the lineup this year. Lana Del Rey, Foster the People, Young the Giant and Lorde come to mind. I'd love a St. Vincent appearance too. I know she was just there with David Byrne two years ago but I'm really trying to catch the Digital Witness tour.
but im pretty sure that foster the people, young the giant, and st. vincent were all there in 2012. not saying they cant come back. just saying that seemed to be your year. correct me if im wrong.
I just looked and you are right. Good call. 2013 was my first year. 2012 had an incredible lineup. Hopefully some of them will come back soon!
This is worst in the scummy way, I'm a member of a lot of local car groups here on facebook, earlier today someone posted this screencap of someone else offering $200 to steal a car, which is completely awful right?
fast forward to tonight, and this gets posted..
Welp, guess he found someone to do it!
The group moderator is sending all of this to the police, obviously. Hope that scumbag gets found.
Well, the "college town" I frequent would be the OSU campus part of downtown Columbus. I have places for very cheap beer, but 15 cent beer night is nonexistent, to my knowledge. I'm willing to start the trend tho. I could be that person.
I've been to the bars in Columbus after one of my buddies got free tickets to a blue jackets game, we just drove over to Ohio and stayed with his cousins. They were actually pretty fun, but I still prefer my Bloomington bars
This concept of 15 cent beer confuses me. Beer usually costs much more than that. Is it realy bad beer? Or do they give you like a teaspoon.
What about tipping? Is 3 cents the usual tip (20%). Or if the server's really cute do you leave the whole nickel?
Is there a limit to how many you can buy at once? Can i plunk down 15 bucks and say: "100, please."
Some nights there's a five dollar cover to get into the bar, some they put a free "pass" if you get a the bar before 10pm on twitter/facebook. A lot of the time if everyone in my group isn't ready to go/not back from class/whatever some will just get stamps and walk home or something, but if there's nothing else to do we'll just sit and get drunk there. The main reason for not always staying right after we get there is because the music doesn't start until 11pm so you're kinda just standing around waiting (you don't exactly have to camp out more than even 5 minutes to get a spot by the stage, it takes a couple minutes for everyone in the bar to walk over there after they start too.)
The beer rotates between coors/miller most nights, but recently they've had bud light too. The cups are probably a little less than an actual serving a beer, maybe 10 ounces if I had to guess. Tipping is a different story. I like to give a decent night's tip to one bartender at the beginning and then go back with exact change the next couple of times I go up. Some people don't tip and say it should be expected on these cheap nights, and some get multiple beers and then leave a dollar every time. As far as I know there isn't a limit on how many beers you can get. I've never ordered more than 8 at a time, but I've seen people get like 10 or some other large quantity and then just set them down on the stage and post up there all night (while having people save their spots for restrooms breaks of course).
