AAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaRrrgghh!!!
I am tearing my hair out right now, because tickets for the Led Zep concert at the O2 in November are £125 each (that's before the touts get hold of them) and the website (www.ahmettribute.com), the ONLY place you can get them - is completely in meltdown!
So annoying.
I wonder if Mr Fry managed to get his tickets?
Has ANYBODY managed to get tickets?

Nope, but then again I did manage to get tickets for the Prince show at the same venue on the 21st, but the cousin and two mates of mine who were supposed to be going no longer can.

I'm now having to run around madly trying to find three other people to go, as no one else I know can make it, so I don't end up having to go on my own and end up having to becoming a filthy tout myself and selling them on the night. :'(

It should be the most exiting thing I've ever done in my life, and now I'm just upset and angry at everyone.

AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'(

I like this forum topic.

Something tells me Stephen is not a Led Zeppelin fan.

I may be wrong but that doesn't sound like the kind of music he'd be into.

But it is! He said so on Stephen Fry: Guilty. It's one of his guilty pleasures. He said he likes Led Zeppelin, Wagner and ABBA.

Don't ask me. It was his show and his choices. I don't have any guilty pleasures. I'm not embarrassed by anything I like. I don't feel like I should be.

yeah, but you don't have a bazillion people watching everything you do, asking you all about it, and and expecting you to be perfect.

or do you?

Yeah, 'guilty pleasures' my a*se! You shouldn't feel guilty about things which give you pleasure (unless they are criminal acts which deliberately cause undesired harm to other people - just covering myself there!)
I'm surprised Stephen didn't make some sort of statement to this effect at the beginning of the programme... after all, when he was on Room 101 he put Room 101 in Room 101(!!) for the precise reason that he doesn't enjoy programmes which sneer at things. He even suggested a replcement called 'Room Lovely'!
What would you put in your Room Lovely?
-Bichon Frise dogs and Olives stuffed with garlic for a start! (stuffed olives, not the dogs!!

AAAARRRRR!!!!!!!!!!! Olives!!!!!!!!!!!! They're scaring me!!!!!!! And the licorice!!!!!!!!! Arrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!

Do we have a Room 101 topic were we can put all these?

As for other Rant Room hates, how about going on to the Troma Movie website to finaly buy all the Troma films I've wanted all these years, only to discover that the shipping costs to my area, (area 2 international) is $60...

$60?!??!

O.K I know why they had to do that sort of thing, because the cheaper airmail services kept loosing the parcels, but still...$60!! And that's even if you only buy ONE!!
They kindly provide another service were you can buy them from another website to download directly to your computer...A service that ISN'T availible in the U.K!!!!!! How is THAT helping anyone exactly?!??
