A Blank Space…

I’ve pondered what to write for a while now, and I’ve officially got a blank space where my mind should be. All I can think about is LOST. I’d write a piece on the show, but others do that quite well, and in appropriate places. For today, we’ll have to settle for a jam and a download. Dig into the archives and read a piece you never read before. Thanks for your understanding! To the Light…

    In regards to new covers, if the Hawks make it to the finals/win the cup, they open Toyota with “Chelsea Dagger.” Not a fan of the song, but would be phishy.

  9. angryjoggerz Says:

    Thanks Kayatosh! This is one I have been wanting since 93, so not likely…, though 3.0 is where dreams come true (rides away on rainbow unicorn)

    Update: Best Buy still sucks.

    March 10 – Using gift card + cash, I order 3 records that are “special orders” which “usually ship within 15-21 days.” (Seems like a long time but I’m patient when things are essentially free to me.)

    Early April – Order status has not changed. I call BBuy 3x to see what the deal is. 1st person gets me free shipping. (score!) Other 2 people are worthless. One is even kinda hostile. Everyone says it will be another couple of weeks, or so. The hostile one says just wait 45 days! Everyone says BBuy will call or email me in 3 business days. No calls or emails occur.

    April 15 – I submit a written complaint via their “Contact Us” webpage.

    April 16 – Unofficial looking text-only email from “David” (no last name or job title) from “BestBuy Research” tells me the items are “not available” (no @#$%…) and that they are waiting on their “sister alliance” to provide them. He also wants to know if I want to cancel the order. (Nope. Give me my free records.)

    April 25 – Get a fancy html email with the subject “Your items are backordered” (Thanks for the heads up, there BBuy.)

    May 6 – Order status is the same as it was since day one. Called BBuy. Talk to “Cody” who tells me the item is in stock (wtf!) and he is going to send an email to this “sister alliance” to see what is going on and I should be… getting a call or an email in 3 business days. Same song and dance as the 3x I called in early April.

    May 18 – After submitting 2-3 more written complaints via the BBuy “Contact Us” webpage the previous couple of days, I get another unofficial looking text-only email from “Katrina” who identifies herself as part of the BBuy Customer Care team who tells me it will be another 2 weeks or more(!) before my order can be fulfilled. She also asks if I want to cancel the order. (Wow. We’ve made zero progress.)

    May 20 – I take the time to respond to “Katrina’s” email telling her that I’ve drafted letters to all of the local news outlets in Austin detailing this fiasco. And “I want my items and I want them soon. If you can’t find them, maybe you should try eBay.”

    Obviously, the easy thing for everybody involved is for me to cancel the damn order (I know this would make BBuy Customer Service happy) but this has become so absurd I’m actually entertained by it to some degree.

    Possible Miner sighting at a blackboard meet up?
    I certainly stepped in at the right time!

    Just had a quick thought.

    Would anyone purchase an “I (heart) PH” tee (ala I (heart) NY)-the classic New York City tee?
    Same font, etc?

    Just curious.

    If so, maybe we get these going with phishtoughts.com and 2010 on them?


  18. SillyWilly Says:

    hey neemor

    what about I >(segue sign) PH?

    or I (smiley face sign from the BB) PH?

  19. neemor Says:

    Thunter is in Heaven!
    Good stuff.

    BTW, Thanks to Frankie for the extra Phish3D poster!

    Whatta guy….

  20. neemor Says:


    Both Stupendous ideas!

  21. butter Says:

    best buy’s customer service is the worst

  22. SillyWilly Says:

    @Selector J

    I could help you draft a particularly scary sounding legal letter citing all kinds of cases, law, and statutes.

  23. neemor Says:

    I >

  24. neemor Says:

    If not careful, looks like you’re saying that “I’m greater than PH”…

    But we’d know.

    Its actually hilarious, I look forward to hearing how this ends.
