Me and My Recent Email

Dear Jeepster Records,
For two $30 tickets to Belle and Sebastian's show in LA, Ticketmaster charges 9 dollars each ticket, plus another 4 for "processing". This is absurd and I really hope that b & s can maybe look at other venues or companies to manage this in the future. I know it's a complete monoply situation and your hands are pretty much tied, but forcing kids to pay OVER 1/3 of the ticket price to see the show, while none of that extra money goes to the band or venue, just don't make no sense. I don't know how to stop this rediculous Ticketmaster juggernaught short of starting my own company, but this how I'll start. Thanks and good luck!

  • ...that juggernaut thing looks like a head-on with Say's Law dontcha think...which, when searching for answers to the four dollar question, leads right to SanFran, the Hoover Institute and Thomas Sowell...dang, it's California cosmic...
