Not Compelling....

I guess there's a market for some of these acts, but it certainly isn't making me want to rush out and buy tickets.

The best seasons ever? When Hall and Oates, Pat Benetar and other 80s and 90s acts that rocked were there. B-52s? Awesome show! Styx? Yes, please!

But, alas, those acts must cost too much for the Fred to make a profit, so we get the bottom of the cutout bin. Oh well...I'll go see the ABBA tribute if I remember. Or maybe I'll just start up my Pandora and put YouTube up on the TV instead...less bugs and drunks.

As a season ticket holder, convince me that this series

Is not a snoozefest. Gladys Knight, Beach Boys, Abba tribute band, Michael Bolton? Is NoDoze a big sponsor?

Marketing will be difficult. Gotta fill it up to pay the dudes

and the dudettes. Don't think we are going to see a revisit - except from the Beach Boys - and I love them. what a show!

Speaking of marketing, has anyone seen the new ad for PCmatic.com? They have some boring oriental guy giving a power point presentation and it sucks. Certainly sucks when compared to the previous efforts where a Victoria Secrets model played daughter to Daddy and the when she grew up a florist selling her old daddy flowers. Dialogue the same - all the time. Somehow convincing and even sexy. The new thing doesn't work.

Love the Beach Boys - the rest just suck.

A mere fifty bucks

More will get you Bret Michaels.:)

I do agree, though. I'm know I'm an oldie, but even these make me feel old.

Even thought it involves getting in a car. :)
