    I had a great time and i miss all the awesome people there. And the chocolate pudding.

    That being said i am even more sad to know i won't be able to make it to a cruise very soon (financial reasons, i gave it all for this Barge :lol: i mean ALL) - and obviously not having my favorite bands on board was a bummer, one didn't get booked and one cancelled fml :lol: but the people around made up for everything. And i loved it wasn't as crowded as 70k: For the first time i was actually in the mosh pits and i did some drunken karaoke.

    It will take me a while to repair the hole in the budget and maybe get a better paid job but until then, hope to see awesome pics from 70k and hear awesome stories, cause im a weenie like that and still like power metal too. And hopefully see some of you guys around, at other festivals that cost less or maybe if you come to Vancouver, give me a shout. We'll party!

    PS: Andy book Obscura for one of the upcoming cruises, they would love to play the cruise and they are serious guys. :beerwink:

We talked to Monstrosity during the last night of the cruise and asked them how they got booked, and they said they heard about the cruise from talking to another band and then contacted UMC themselves and asked to be on the bill. So if those bands want on, make sure they call and ask! I see quotes from bands all the time that say "we would do it if they asked us to", but who knows how many of those bands actually request to be on it!

    It never hurts to ask!


    No, I didn't know this (about Monstrosity). I've pestered bands enough into contacting UMC though. So unless they are absolutely lying to me (LOL), I've got that angle covered :lol: There are also bands who are of the mindset that "if you ask, you lose any negotiating power". I get that point as well (though I'm not happy about it) :beerwink:

    I've mentioned a couple times to the UMC crew that they should be handing out homework assignments or something to those of us willing to help promote the cruise. I'd bet cash money Kevin could sell a few cabins! No doubt!

    Thank YOU, Andy and UMC!!! BEST VACATION EVER!!!

    So good to see everyone as well. I think that's the best part. And fun to meet the new people! Loved those two Austrian guys!

    If I had the vacation time, I would do 70,000 Tons of Metal, too. I have to save some time to see my family in Wyoming & Colorado as well.

    LOVE YOU FORUMITES, MAN!!!

    I wouldn't even require a discount, just a pick of my always high quality bands selections:

    The 11th Hour
    KRUX
    ZOMBIE INC.
    The Devil's Blood
    My Dying Bride


    (All those bands are playing on the same lineup today at Eindhoven Metal Meeting.

    You know what, you all..? Any 70000 will never be as good as any BARGE TO HELL!!! :shred:

    - no power metal wheenies
    - no metalheadwannabeesbutwithloadedwallet
    - no KING OF THE PIT :D

    btw.. ...I found most of forum members quite introvertic on this cruise, actually you pretty suck in real life :D I expected whole loads of expressive personalities and shit loads of interesting discussions, but I recongnised blank faces here and there with no real metal rage in the eyes, just sad distant observers, waiting to wank about pointless karaoke...

    Anyone else get that soul-crushing depression when you had to deal with "normal" society after the cruise? And by "normal", I mean the self-absorbed, inconsiderate fucking douchebags that make up the majority of society. After a week of being around metalheads, I made the mistake of forgetting how "normal" people are and allowed myself to enjoy being around people, which was quickly ripped from me as soon as I left the ship.

    So I've been absorbing everyone else's experiences, which keeps reminding me of my cool experiences.
    Never take anything I say seriously.

    Am I Evil? I am Dan. Yes, I am! :twisted:

    I dealt with soul crushing annoyance today at the craft store. The cashier was on some trippy shit. She just stared at me forever when I came to her register with my supplies. I don't really have that depression, I always try to be positive because I don't want to ever go back to that way I used to be years ago. I usually get that dark hopeless feeling when there is more than 200 days in between cruises , but with these 2 being so close it helps only having 6 weeks to wait.
