View Full Version : fucking doormen.

I got to Protein's gig a bit early tonight and the doorman said my name wasn't on the list (he didn't even look) so I bought a ticket, no big deal. Then I went out to have a smoke and the bloody doorman wouldn't let me back in! He said I'd have to buy another ticket so I got pissed off and went home. Talk about bad luck.

This is why smoking is bad for you.

your name was definitely on the list! it was down as john jackson plus one. i think i also put jack johnson plus one there too.

i think it was sold out pretty early on and then emptied after we played.

i promise i will make it up to you if we come back to san diago with nine inch nails.

alternatively, if you fancy a three hour drive tomorrow, we're playing at the el ray in hollywood.

It's not your fault. It's mine for smoking and not getting a hand stamp. That and the bloody doorman was a cunt.

Always get a hand stamp with Bedankt on it.

We had a nice door(wo)man story at the Paradiso in Amsterdam.

We get to the door, me, Drekkus, Bas, K_G and Debaser. I say, should be me + 5 on Pirates guestlist but we've got + 4. The door woman says "ok I've got you + 3...". Shit. I try and call one of the band members. No answer. Me + 3 decide to go in, try and find a Pirate and sort things out so Drekkus can get in. He volunteers to wait as he has other friends he can visit in Amsterdam if he can't get in.

We can't find any of the band and I knew my brother had no credit on his phone so he couldn't receive calls whilst abroad so I sent him a text message saying "hey, only got +3 on the door, need an extra place... blah" and 3 minutes later someone comes to the front door and changes the guest list for the pirates so Drekkus can get in. I text my brother saying thanks!

A bit later, after the gig, we meet my brother outside the venue. I thank him for sorting the door thing out so quickly. And he says he left his mobile at the hotel, never got my messages. It was just a ridiculous coinicidence.

The funny part of the previous post got deleted somehow

I think it was ghosts or sumthhin

No-one claimed there was something funny in the story.

01-05-2008, 12:13:33
And it's true!

Oerdin's story is funny though.

01-05-2008, 12:15:41
Funny part was that I really didn't want to go in all that much, since I had seen them play on friday already. :D But thankfully I did, the Paradiso is a great venue and the gig was great.

And the damn thing is that I now have the Mr Understanding song in my head ever since. :)

Still don't get why Oerdin wants to fuck a doorman.

*shrug* different strokes I guess

01-05-2008, 12:45:51
More proof that Oerdin is a walking douche bag. Doorman are pre-programmed to block any giant cunt rags from entering a club.

But how do you really feel Venom?

He's in a mellow mood today.

I was feeling mellow but the Shakespearean insults thread got me all fired up.

can someone laying drunk on the sidewalk against a door get called a "doorman"?
