Called the Royal Theatre in Toronto today, turns out the merch stand would be there. Consdiering I already went to the primiere they said i could go in to just buy the merch. Went there an hour early to check out some shops. saw an UGWNL poster in a music shop and asked the dude if I could have it. He said sure, as he took it down it had someone elses name and phone number in the back of it FUCK wouldn't give it to me, even offered him money... Whatever I thought, was going to buy some merch anyway, wait out in the cold to be first in line, finally 6:30 arrives and what happens? The lady that was running the merch stand just packs her shit up and leaves 20 min before the doors open.

This is where I have my beef as a collector. Went to the premiere, amazing night, INCREDIBLE, i know I'm sounding like a douche here, but fuck what does a guy have to do to get a fucking White Stripes poster around here and not pay 500 fucking dollars? Or a Limited "screening" T-shirt for the same price? I was going to pick up extras for some people here, but NOOOO.

The time effort and money it takes to obtain something that you love is fucking ridiculous! I know TMR likes to drive us crazy, but to be honest I don't care if they make 10,000 of something as long as I get to have it! What's with all the theater, music store and "publicity" douche bags getting all the badass merch for free most likely and the fans have to pay 500 bucks OR be near nashville. 300 dollars for a fucking GBMS? I just want to listen to the vinyl without taking out another God damned Loan!

I probably look like an asshole right now, and somewhat of a whiney bitch AND I'll probably end up deleting this later, but my God man. It's fucking ridiculous.
