My policy is to honor the confidentiality of anyone who emails to me, but since your email was simply a nice one-line invitation to attend TicketStock, I didn't think you would mind if I answered you personally.
It had been my plan to attend either later today or sometime tomorrow. However, the press of business, Mrs. Plainsman having something annoying for me to do, or the possibility of being in France, means that it is looking unlikely. But thanks anyway.
And I must say: Attending Ticket events always presents me with a dilemma. Like any P1, I'd find it delightful to meet any of the guys whose talent I enjoy and admire so much.
But I'm wondering if My Ticket Confession hasn't become something of a harsh mistress. I claim -- some would say "pretend" -- that MTC is Your Source for Responsible Ticket Journalism, which suggests the need to maintain some observational distance from Ticket personalities so that I may continue fearlessly to comment objectively on their broadcast comings and goings. Of course, a handshake and "keep up the good work" probably wouldn't impeach the site's credibility all that much.
If "credibility" is something it possesses to begin with.
So I dunno. I'm conflicted about introducing myself.
But one thing I'm not conflicted about is that OPEN THREAD on TicketStock starts NOW. This year or any. Email photos, please.
