There's a psychic doing two shows this month at a local venue, and neither show is selling many tickets. I feel like he should've seen this coming.

I feel bad for the east coasters dealing with terrible air quality, but it's crazy to see the national media going nuts over wildfire smoke when we've been dealing with it for YEARS out here in the west. Hopefully now wildfires will get the attention they've always deserved.

Seeing @CharlieIntel on the new member list makes me long for the days of SOCOM. Anyone else play that one? It was always my favorite from that genre of games. 🥰

That’s basically the 1983 MTV playlist. Sweet! I enjoy seeing what name John Cougar goes by at the time. I also remember trying to win that pink house he was giving away on MTV :)

OMG I totally forgot about that pink house giveaway!! Just Googled it and found this article and it's a trip down memory lane. rollingstone.com/music/music-news/pink-houses-yuppie-scum-and-beastie-boy-kidnappings-relive-mtvs-most-insane-contests-832009/... (Had no idea about the Van Halen contest guy almost dying...)

That is a fantastic find! I had forgotten some of those and had not heard the aftermath of some others. I will definitely try to find that documentary on the VH weekend.

I was there! I went just for the day (no camping) on Day 3, Monday. Not only that, I went the year before to the first Us Festival (only on Day 1, Friday). Great shows, but hot as hell, insanely crowded, air thick with dust, and not enough water (basically prenatal Coachella)

My SoCal teen self had never heard of Apple Computer or Steve Wozniak until reading about this "new Woodstock" and seeing all the "art & tech" booths at the festival. ...

... Then a small plane flew over the grounds towing a banner that read, "Thanks Woz," which I thought was hilarious — I assumed this rich computer dude had hired the plane to thank himself. The concerts were great, but if I had only bought Apple stock instead of the tickets... 🤣

LOL, I know that feeling. Bought a small amount of Apple stock in 1995, sold it at a loss in 1996, then Jobs came back in '97. I could be sitting on a beach somewhere rn. :/ Too cool that you were there, even if it just for a day!

The place was such a dump during at 12+ hour day (not beautiful Coachella Valley, mind you, but San Bernardino), that I had no regrets whatsoever not camping out for the whole 3 days.

And not on this poster, but The Grateful Dead also played on Day 3 (Sunday) in 1982, an abbreviated set at 9:30 in the morning (!) called "Breakfast with The Dead." So that would have been one perk for campers.

Such an incredible line up. $20 a day and if you wanted a ticket in advance you had to call Ticketmaster! Memories of Sunday dinners at a friends house glued to MTV waiting for “Start Me Up” to come on.

A wonderful update on where things are rn with T2.
A few updates on on this site. Our goal is to build a kinder, safer, and more fun public square. Where we are, where we’re going, and what we’ve learned. (🧵)

My best tip for all the new @t2 users: Be more open-minded about who you follow here. I'm usually really stingy about clicking the follow button, but I've taken a different approach here and it's been great to meet some really cool people. (Repost this and share your fave tip!)

Completely relate I make a point to follow as little people as possible on other platform, but on here everyone is super nice and friendly so it's worth pressing follow more often.
