    It's hard for me to tell if you're being serious or not but you've made so many direct and indirect comments to me that I never know how to take things you post to me.

    Anyways.........c'est la vie I guess

    Laura,

    You're a mother of 2 girl's, enough with the DNA talk. Let's listen to the new GRAVE song. Too extreme for 70K :death: :death: :death:

    yeah i know Kate! unless they decide they cant pull off two cruises a year and let us mortals catch up on our bills AND not miss out on anything....

    there's no way i should be going on 70K in January given the two cruises nick and i are both going on in December (barge and brother's wedding immediately following). no way. totally wrong! hahah but i did want to avoid death by Finnish woman...

    OK
    BTH booked & paid
    Flight tickets booked
    Hotel booked.

    Got 2 newbees (Polish friends) & they booed :shred:

    Now question: will the BTH go on with so low sales? or will UMC cancel? :?

    i sure hope they don't cancel. the lineup is WAY too good. they don't even need 40 bands, 30 would be fine if it saves money! i mean come on, this lineup is ridiculous! why more people aren't booked i have no idea, unless my theory about "extreme" metal fans IN GENERAL having less disposable income than power metal/prog metal fans is true. i mean i know death metal people who are doing ok but many are barely scraping by, and lots of my prog.power friends are engineers and such. stereotypical sure and there are plenty of exceptions but OVERALL i suspect that the ProgPower crowd has a higher median income than the Maryland Deathfest crowd. i can get a decent sampling from among my own friends and prove that, again with some exceptions and outliers (like gnoff, an engineer who strongly prefers death to power or prog metal any day).

    but yes i have been nervous that most of the Barge to Hell fan base can't afford to be onbroad. i've been into death/black/extreme stuff for 2 decades now and i have just seen a relationship between lack of funds and love of extreme music hahah. of course people will argue, i know of some exceptions but i do know this broad brush stroke contains a lot of evidence behind it.

    perhaps UMC has a low 'break even point" for these cruises and they can still make money even if they don't sell out.

    in the future, i'm not sure about 2 cruises per year, but i am sure they should always do one a year!

    It's quite interesting that you say that, because I've found, with no exceptions I can think of, the same thing. I've arranged rides to concerts with strangers online and they've turned out to be (both, independently) astrophysicists for a power metal show, and an unemployed French anarchist for the death metal. I'd bet my bank account that Weenie Ride to Rainbows would bring in more passengers than Barge to Hell, although I much prefer the mix we have on 70k. I'm curious to hear others' thoughts on this too (although it won't be what you'd see normally on either side of the coin since we're all going on cruises)

    yeah most of we cruisers are exceptions anyway, but for all my noncruiser metal friends, the extreme metal peeps are always struggling to pay bills or if they're not struggling, they don't have EXTRA cash. my prog power friends are always buying new gear and traveling and fixing up their homes and shit like that!

    i excuse myself from my study since i love death AND prog, but not really much power...and i do well $$ wise.

    I have an idea... announce some more good bands and that will help generate more interest and more sales! It's been over a month. Surely they must have another band to announce by now?

    Would be nice! I've been waiting for more Barge bands. Especially since the last few announcements have been disappointing.

    But the next year you are going to choose one cruise ore any? :shock:

    Yes :cry: :cry:

    One cruise. Most probably 70K, since that means I can get home for Christmas

    I'm still thinking about this one.

    Have some personal stuff going on, but I really want to be on this cruise!
