Wyatt Earp: [blocking the advance of gun-toting ranchhands into Dodge] I am Wyatt Earp!
Gun-toting Ranchhand #1: Who the *fuck* is Wyatt Earp?
Gun-toting Ranchhand #2: I expect he’s just some asshole!
Warren Earp: He’s the asshole who enforces the law in Dodge City!
The above dialogue comes from the movie Wyatt Earp with Kevin Kostner as the legendary Wyatt Earp. In my circle we found it so incredibly funny and iconic that whenever we use this phrase in common dialogue to describe the fact that we have never heard of somebody.
I open with that short story to explain the title of this post. I swear to you, those were the exact words I uttered when I heard one of my secretaries complaining that the tickets for David Bisbal’s show at Sala Palatului cost 400 RON (120 EURO) ONE!
For fuck’s sake, I paid EUR 90 for Madonna and some EUR 85 to see the Rolling Stones. I just cannot, for the love of God, imagine that mr Bisbal is a ‘bigger’ act than the names I mentioned earlier, however un-educated I may be in the field of music! On that note, I paid around EUR 90 last summer to see Manu Chao, Alanis Morisette, Nelly Furtado, Cypress Hill, Roisin Murphy and some other 20 bands last summer.
For those of you who intend to tell me that this concert is indoors and one needs to charge more out of less concert-goers, I paid some EUR 40 to see the each of the Buena Vista Social Club, Smokie or the Harlem Globetrotters! (in the exact same venue or comparable in number of seats).
I am so shocked that I cannot find a witty way to end this post 🙂
