Some scattered meets in July

Post by class316 » September 11th, 2018, 4:01 pm

Start July with the Happy Together tour. My main goal is Turtle members Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman and Three Dog Night member Chuck Negron. Sadly Howard is in bad shape and was replaced by Ron Dante of the Archies. But I could still go for Mark, try for Chuck, and get other names on the tour.

First up is Bill Cunningham (original bassist of the boxtops). Then Mark Lindsay (lead singer of Paul Revere & the Raiders) who actually came up to us and said "quickly". Then Jules Alexander (original member of The Association) who was super nice. Got an update with Ron Dante. Finally got Mark Volman of The Turtles which puts me on the board for the day. Got a solo shot with the female member of the Cowsills (I mooched a group shot at Chiller a few years back).

Even though we were not on the venue's property they tried to tell us we couldn't wait here right now and we had to leave but that we could wait after the show. We begrudgingly complied but I thought to myself I'll be nice now but if after the show they tried to chase us out I would curse them out and raise hell. While this was happening Chuck Negron arrived and I tried to ask but he ignored. Left and went to a buffet.

Came back in the evening. Got a couple of barely valids and got Gary Puckett of Gary Puckett & The Union Gap. Then Jim Yester of The Association.

Saw Chuck Negron but venue security and the driver tried to block us from him. Went to his hotel where it was just us and him but sadly he just waved at us. Overall not the most extravagant endeavor but I got one member of the Turtles plus valid members of other bands so overall it was fruitful.

Next up was an even with a host of people but no one really good that I needed. I figured I'd go for autographs and get what I can. The only good fresh op I got is Otis Williams, the only original member of the Temptations that's still alive. John Stamos and Mike Love of the Beach Boys blanked. Luke Combs used the back and did nothing for no one.

The next evening I was in the neighborhood so I came back for returns just to see what I can get. Got updates with John Stamos and Chita Rivera. Luke Combos blanked.

Rounded up July with Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins (Hold Me Now). Got him after the show. Nice guy

I actually prefer he use links. Allows me to read his report without using too much of my mobile data. I check this page at work never at home so my internet is limited :)

Nice work Class, thoroughly enjoyed the report.

Paid for Cleese, huh? All this debt, I guess Class can just print money like Trump says, and all is well.

There's a couple of reasons why I do reports this way.

First off it allows me to showcase high rez photos

Second off it's a way to not use up flickr bandwidth. Let's say AJLe views the report, sees the photos. Then someone makes a reply. AJLe clicks the thread again to read the replies. AJLe doesn't load up the photos yet again.

There's a reason literally EVERY other regular poster who does reports on the board does it one way, and you're the sole person to do it another.

I can't speak for anybody else, but I save my hi rez photoz on a hard drive, flash drive, etc., but if I'm going to use them in on social media on on a message board, I shrink down smaller sized copies to include in the report. That way, people can quickly and easily scan through my photos at their leisure (without taking up any significant data), and don't have to click and and out, and in and out, and in and out, of my report to see everything.

You're the one who (repeatedly) claimed you were doing reports for The People, yet you're completely inconsiderate to them, and make viewing your report a hassle and a chore. In the end, it's much easier to just skip Class reports entirely, since we now know that it will take several times longer to view one of your reports than it would any other poster's report of a similar size.

Class, This is not to say u have to follow everyone, but jesus christ, It is annoying of reading a report then opening a link with picture the size of my thumbnail. And truly, unless it is blurry or star is not looking, I am sure no one is judging the "quality" of ur pics of Hi Rez.

And if truly believe this, then please start posting on ur FB page the same exact way with links since I am sure they are compressing ur pictures there as well ( to again, nobody cares of the rez)

You can't be "for the people" if u refuse to listen to them.

Fine you know what going forward I will post low rez photos embedded of photo ops and autographs. But the "full list" photos will be high rez links. Starting with my next report.

Correct me if I'm mistaken, but doesn't flickr have a certain amount of free monthly usage for its users?

Since when? I embed the 800dpi photo here and have no issues.
