I'm on my way to the SAVERS 50% off sale because I got today off! So maybe Spiff will tell us later what the deal is with the historic Orpheum Theatre if he doesn't mind telling everyone the same story I already heard (but am too lazy to cut-n-paste at this point in time).

Jeez, you make it sound like I did a big writeup on the Orpheum.



Expanding on that (and this wasn't included in my PM to CRZ), I was originally looking to combine a particular Pearl Jam concert poster with "the-w.com" (the poster was a lighthouse w/ an octopus wrapped around it, with "Pearl Jam" written in the shining lightbeam - I was going to replace "Pearl Jam" with "the-w.com"), but I came up empty trying to google a pic of it. Sticking w/ the musical theme, I then came up w/ using a concert ticket, so I googled for concert tickets for theaters in the Minneapolis area, since CRZ lives near there, and that ticket is what I found.

From there, it was just a matter of taking out Elvis Costello and making "THE-W.COM". Luckily, the white space is nondescript enough that I was able to copy a little part, then stretch it out over the original printing. The only "tricky" parts were inverting the M to make a W, increasing the size of a couple letters/numbers from the "restoration fee" line to make the date, and fashioning the B in "FEB" out of the P in "Orpheum". I think I got the 6 for "2006" from another concert ticket pic.

This was all done in MSPaint, btw.

Sounds like Don King pontificating on the radio here about the Twin Cities of Milwaukee and St. Paul, which of course, are about 6 hours apart from each other. Oh well, we're used to it :-)

I like it!


And I didn't even notice the date thing the first time. Very cool.

Me am stupid.

The Orpheum Theatre is in MINNEAPOLIS, which is where CRZ is near, not Milwaukee.

Don't feel too bad...I spent about 1/2 hour trying to think of where in Milwaukee it was...

I feel worse. I thought of the Orpheum in Memphis rather than the grand city of my birth. FOR SHAME!



At least to my credit, I've never actually BEEN to the one in Minneapolis. I left when I was 4 for crying out loud!

That was SO worth waiting five days to read.

Also, you spelled "the" wrong.

I don't get it...the spell checker doesn't trip up on it, which seems to indicate it's already in there. Unless this is a clever move I've never heard the name of, this is a misspelling of "ricochet."
