i have posted here only a few times in the past, and under a different username but i read the entries now and then. i just had to post now though because OH MY GOD i got picked to attend the show. i am so fucking excited; i never win anything. the problem is that i live in seattle. i am feeling spontaneous enough to buy a plane ticket for the weekend but i don't think i could swing a hotel on top of that. is there anyone else going that might let me crash on their couch for a night or two? maybe? if you'd even consider you can PM me and i can tell you a little more about myself...
i will decide for sure if i can make it before the end of the day. i don't want to hold up the spot for someone that can definitely go.

Did people who have never been to a concert have less of a chance?

I suspect this didn't matter,
but I can't speak for the judges.

Amanda and her team,
love creative rule breaking.
So if you had a wiz-bang entry
on what you wish your favorite concert memory
had been, or some such,
you might have actually had more chance.

It certainly didn't work against you, and that's why I gave people an option to enter even if they hadn't seen Amanda live before. There were some awesome entries from people who hadn't seen AFP before and I'm hoping at least a few of them now get a chance (and love it). I will admit that when it came down to deciding between some close-calls, the more actively someone was using GetGlue the more points that earned 'em towards a win.

Congrats, and thank you for coming here to try and make plans (especially so you can let the ticket go if you can't come, that's noble). I'll tell you this: If you can get out to the show, it will be worth it -- good luck finding a crash space.

i'm looking this up right now but i don't think it'd hurt to ask here, too, does anyone have suggestions for finding cheap last minute flights? :)

Sean, two sets of questions:

Food-related:

Are you an adventurous eater?
Do you like veggies, bread, and eggs?
How do you feel about Indian/Thai/Malaysian food?
On a spiciness scale 1-10, what can you handle?

Hayley, I know you well enough that you'll just have to eat what I serve.  And drink water afterward.


Getglue-related:

I sort of use it whenever there's an AFP promotion around it, but usually find no other reason to go on.  What is so awesome about it, again?  It hasn't given me particularly interesting or compelling predictions of movies or music or shows I would like (Not more than pandora or amazon, at least).  I get that there are other reasons for doing promotions... but what is the official line about how it's awesome, at least?

I am startled but very grateful to have won. No more wussing out and not going to show for fear of being "too old" to go.

I'm coming down from Montreal (hopefully with wife if a ticket somehow opens up or I can buy one, PM sent and SOS relayed to appropriate persons) and this will be a road trip I won't soon forget!

Thank you to all those involved. Should I wear my Canadiens jersey or will you people hurt me if I do?

Now get off my lawn, you dirty kids!

Oh. I'm not very creative.  :'( Every course I did really poorly in, in college was an art class. Who knew you could actually do poorly at art right? But you can. One teacher actually said I was purposefully being disobedient. So not surprisingly I went into science LOL.

Thank you anyway.

you had incredibly BAD art teachers!

sigh.

if you mention where you live,
people might now some good teachers and coops ...

i am beyond excited & grateful to hear that i won, and can't wait to see a few familiar faces and a whole lot of new ones! 

as for food...should we bring something?  i know the venue's kind of super secret but also that it will be teeny tiny and intimate...i will happily make some delicious vegetarian/vegan food if it won't be cumbersome...

and corrie, i'm not one for knowing anything about flights, HOWEVER, are you on couchsurfing (http://www.couchsurfing.org/)?  i more than likely cannot help out with hosting (but will still check with the roommate & her plans), but there's a fairly good-sized community of CS'ers here that i'm sure would be able to help out - it certainly sounds like the show will be worth it!!

Better check that your gnomes are all accounted for......

(Oh, and Len & I, to name only two, are probably older than you.....  
The AFP/DD fan-kids are a welcoming bunch nevertheless.)

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

I am one of the oldest known fans.

And age doesn't matter in the punk cabaret.
