EMOTIONS FELT AS I SOLD MY CARLY RAE JEPSEN TICKETS (AS DESCRIBED THROUGH TRACKS FROM "EMOTION")
For optimal List experience, please listen to CRJ's excellent 2015 album "Emotion" while reading https://open.spotify.com/album/6UjZgFbK6CQptu8aOobzPV
- •Run Away With MeI sincerely like this album, a lot. When it was announced she was performing on a Saturday night in Chicago, I knew it would be a run away sellout. And it did within hours, but not before I bought 4 tickets. I had every intention of going, until she was added to the 2016 Pitchfork Music Festival, which is a much better venue for a person of my... vintage. (I'd rather dance among aging millennials than teens and cool dads)
- •EmotionSo it was sad to sell them, and it was crazy... But I'm not turning a "maybe" to a no... Just to a later.
- •I Really Like YouThe original CL post asked for $140 for all four tickets. I had multiple people asking to buy a single ticket for $140 (that's how in demand these are). But I spilt them up for two buyers and sold them for $40 a piece. I could've gotten more than double, so I think the buyers really like me.
- •Gimme LoveGimme $40 per ticket.
- •All ThatCRJ is truly all that. Ya know she is singing the theme for Fuller House, right?
- •Boy ProblemsBuyer 1 was kinda clueless as he thought I was going to wait outside a bar in the snow. I had to wave him inside. I told this story to Buyer 2 by describing that he was having "boy problems" which made my friend blurt laugh. Buyer 2 didn't respond to my joke (when my jokes miss, that's *this* boy's problem).
- •Making The Most Of The NightThe original buyer, who was going to take all four - had to back out today. It created a mess trying to find new buyers. But it was a distraction I very much needed today and I was able to successfully complete another Craigslist mission.
- •Your TypeThe bartender was shocked that I liked CRJ. She didn't think it was my type. I'm proud that I'm comfortable enough to admit I enjoy pop music.
- •Let's Get LostSo I have an empty spot in my concert calendar now. Feels hollow.
- •LA Hallucinations*nope! Too real tonight!*
- •Warm BloodI may have downloaded a swipe app and I may have been swiping while I waited for the buyer rendezvous.
- •When I Need YouI needed to get rid of these tickets tonight and I was happy that both buyers were punctual.
- •Black HeartMy friend, who was going to join me at CRJ (but is also going to #p4kfest) thankfully accepted my request to join me tonight. If he didn't, I would still be at that bar getting blackout drunk.
- •I Didn't Just Come Here To DanceThis is one of my favorite tracks of this album and it's a goddamn miracle I didn't reference the chorus to either of the buyers, if you know what I mean. (Those of you who like this song too are really going to appreciate that joke)
- •Favourite ColourGreen. The color of cash.
