General The Cure Discussion / Re: Have you had dreams about The Cure?

Last night I dreamt that I was with Robert Smith and handed him two small cards and asked him to autograph them for me. When he handed them back I noticed he'd written three telephone numbers on the cards. I think the area codes were (703) on all three numbers. (I just looked up 703 and it took me to Virginia in the USA. Then I googled 703 England and guess where it took me to? 703 England Street in Ashland, Virginia! So let's watch and see if there is any Cure activity in that region). In the dream I called one of the numbers and it was a radio station. The man who answered the phone gave me a number to reach Robert, I think...The other two numbers on the cards seemed like they were just leads, so I called the number the radio guy gave me and Perry Bamonte answered. I wondered why Robert was directing me to Perry. As I talked to Perry we set up meeting after the sound check of a Cure concert, at 10 PM at night, an hour before the show was to start at 11 PM.

Tried to get tickets but it says "Tickets not currently available from Ticketmaster" :/

The same panic has once been spread with CFC and the ozone hole. I mean there's actually
no need for any panic, but the lifestyle of the mainstream is indeed a problem. That forest
is only the top of an iceberg. Some people built small houses in the branches and lived there
for years(!) - widely ignored by the media. Until now.

Your story of the school reminds me of another building but vice versa. It was used in its last
decades as medical center (for British troops) and then as a kindergarten - the Farne Villa in
Bad Oeynhausen. You can watch it on old postcards - for my taste the most prominent house
in town - but after a long period of dilapidation they finally demolished it in 1968. The worst
case ever, but nobody wanted to preserve a building that represented the pre wartime. The good
thing is: the public opinion is changing - slowly. 
I'm in

It's a win for environmental law and for the surrounding communities, preserving the forrest. Coal mines, they are a massive part of our landscape here too, all of which are defunct. The environment is big on the agenda at the minute, I can feel the panic setting in.

Well, the forest is located on the edge of a large brown coal mine and it should disappear,
if you ask the energy industry. Several environmental protection agencies had taken
legal action against it with the support of local communities and other people from
different regions too, luckily. The second and decisive trial is attached to the administrative
court of Cologne, and won't be decided before 2020, so far so good I suppose.  ;)
Hey, thank you for that! Miracle would be nice. ;) But just a little more work would do too (and paying less for insurances and stuff). I'm doing alright at the moment... just no space for "big jumps" or long travels.

I know, I could just not go see any other gigs aside from the Cure in order to save money, but I need all that extra stuff to keep the balance between work and private life. I need some "distraction", taking a hike, meeting old friends and all that, some of that costs money, but that's how life is.
Awwww. I'm sending wishes for a miracle for you so that you can afford to go to all the shows you want. Let us know if it happens!  :heart-eyes
