Sufjan Stevens !@#!!

When I was able to get Waits tickets I did it by using the computer
automated phone line of Ticketmaster. The deal is, if something fucks up,
there is no human-contact alternative. While I was on the phone, I was also
on my computer trying it online style. The computer click through was slow.
But in less than 6 minutes over the phone I had two tickets in the 17th row.
My friend, who was just on the computer kept timing out and all sorts of
shit. Never did get tickets. Poor fucker.
