    So I got a new job and wont be able to make it. I am totally pissed but this job will help me get further in life and hopefully Kiuas Perzonal War and Assailant all make appearances in the US again soon.

    So to my brothers in 12th Gate and Sacred Dawn party it up hard for me and I will hopefully see you sooner then later.

    What?! FAIL!!!

    And you were the one who got me into Kiuas.

    If I ever hear you bring up Kiuas for a repeat performance at a future Powerfest, I swear I'll kick you in the nuts!!

    Thats what I figured. Dude you have no idea how much this is killing me. I NEED TO SEE KIUAS at some point, but unfortunately I dont think there is anyway for me to make it. I am keeping my hotel reservation til like the last second possible because I am hoping for a glimmer of hope at the 11th hour.

    Lets try to make me feel like a bigger asshole since because of this job I also cant move to Minn as planned. This job is really making me pissed now, but in the long run it will help so much.

    Yeah. I got a job at this italian restaurant called Bravo. Basically a more expensive version of olive garden.

    But they basically told me that the company is saying "Recession, what?" since they are opening like 30 more restaurants over the next 5 years. So yeah I think it will be, but god damnit is it killing my "Warrior Soul" to miss Kiuas it might put me into "The New Dark Age".

    DUDE, you've gotta be f'ing kidding me!!!! Odds are this will be the ONLY
    chance you'll EVER get to see these bands here so I HIGHLY suggest you
    and anyone else gets their asses to CPF this year or you'll be sitting around
    WISHING you had another chance, just like everyone that missed Nocturnal Rites, Biomechanical, Eldritch and Morgana Lefay at Powerfest in 2006 is still doing!
    You owe it to yourself, man! :):headbang:

    Why don't you just make up some bullshit story about how you can't make it into work that night or that weekend because some urgent family stuff came up?

    OK, I was just gonna browse the thread for a few minutes and bail, but I had to post.

    Ian, you have to come. Most employers are understanding of plans that were made prior to you getting hired. You're not asking for two weeks, just a few days.

    If it's really not feasible, we'll miss you.

    Come on Will, you're forgetting Chris and Rob! :lol:

    I really hope there's more regulars there than that though, a huge part of this festival I think is hanging out with friends that you don't see very often. The bands picked each year are only like 50% of the reason why I go each year.

    I can't imagine why anybody within driving distance would not go regardless of the bands at all. If you are a metalhead in chicago what could you possibly do that weekend that would beat watching a bunch of bands, drinking and hanging out? Really, I just don't get people sometimes...

    That sucks Ian. Sorry to hear that you got a financial smack on top of it. We'll throw a fist in the air and knock back a few cold ones for you.

    there are a few sollutions to your problem.

    First off. The bill stuff. Do like me. Either just mug each and every person you see or sell yourself. Gotta be a few people around that might wanna buy some sex or just a nice time.

    second, the work issue. Just look at your employer. look straight into his eyes. and either give him a blowjob for the few days off or just beat the crap out of him.


    Sex always solves the problem tho. even for us guys. noone gets hurt and hell. You might get a raise in the end. Nothing wrong with whoring. Olderst occupation in the world.
