Happy 20th Anniversary Pearl Jam!!!!!

picture by: rikkirocket34

Hey guys,

I can't believe 20 years have gone by since the first live performance of our favorite group. It amazes me that this band has been a part of my life for almost half of it. Their music has been the soundtrack to my life since I was 21 and all the memories that mean the most to me, have Pearl Jam songs attached to them. Like when I moved from my hometown for the first time and away from family and friends, "Rearviewmirror" plays in the background of my thoughts of driving outta Corpus Christi in my 1989 Ford Escort. When my daughter Leah was born and we wife and I see her for the first time, the lyric from "Wishlist" /I wish I was the verb "to trust" and never let you down/ comes to mind when I roll her down the hall to the nursery. And even in sad times like when a good friend of mine passed away earlier in the year, "The End" was playing in my head when I said goodbye to him.

I don't think these guys will ever know how much they have affected me. How much they were there for me during the best and worst of times. How they conforted me with their music when things were bad and got my blood racing when I saw them live.

So here's to you all: Stone, Mike, Jeff, Eddie, Matt, Dave K., Dave A., Jack and even Boom for all the music, the fun and all the years. Happy 20th Anniversary to best band in the world!!!! And MANY more....please!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

It might have gone this way.... but probably not!

Thought this was pretty funny... got this from I thought you guys would enjoy a laugh or two

The Pre-Sale Scoop:

The Ten Club ticket pre-sales begin Monday, March 15th at 9 AM Pacific Time. Ten Club is offering pre-sale tickets to active members only. You must be a currently active member as of March 10th to qualify for the pre-sale. Sorry, registering and purchasing a membership now will not make you eligible for this pre-sale. Ten Club pre-sale tickets are available online only at with a Visa or Mastercard. No phone, mail, or email orders.

Ten Club tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will stagger ticket sales to control web traffic, so please pay attention to the corresponding pre-sale dates and times listed above as they are not in order of show. Pre-sale tickets are first-come, first-serve, while supplies last. Pre-sales for any available tickets will remain open until Thursday, March 18th at 5pm PST. Confirmations will not be sent until the pre-sale has ended. In the meantime you may view your order confirmation number in your online order history.

For wheelchair accessible seating, please contact us at 1-800-724-8038 before making a ticket purchase.

NEW PRE-SALE RULE!!!!!!! Once you have a pair of tickets in your shopping cart you must complete the check out process within 10 minutes of placing them in your shopping cart, otherwise you run the risk of those tickets being dumped back into stock and going to the next member in line.

Pre-Sale Tips:

-Test out logging in to your account in the days leading up to the pre-sale. Use this time to update old address info, add a billing address to your profile if you are using someone else's card to purchase the tickets, visit the goods page so you know the location of where you'll want to navigate when the pre-sale time arrives. For those of you extremely new to the world of online shopping, we suggest purchasing a $1 sticker to familiarize yourself with the website purchasing procedure.

-On the sale day, login to your account minutes before the specified pre-sale cuts down on the time it takes to navigate to the tickets page from the home page.

-DO NOT LOGIN USING MULTIPLE COMPUTERS!!!!! This creates a bottle neck of web traffic which can result in site failure and loss of ticket order. We can not stress this one enough.

-"Temporarily Out of Stock" means that all available tickets have been placed into shopping carts. In this situation, the best thing to do is to keep refreshing the page. Should a member decide not to complete the transaction, or should the transactions time out after 10 minutes, that pair of tickets will go back into stock and the "buy" button will reappear on that ticket page. The first person to hit the "buy" button will be able to place the tickets in their cart and complete the transaction.

-"Sold Out" means that all tickets that have been placed in carts have been purchased and the ticket sale is officially over.

-To better serve our fans: and the Ten Club phone line receive an overwhelming number of inquiries during the ticket sales. Please be courteous to your fellow members and only email or call with extremely time sensitive questions pertaining to the pre-sale at hand. Hold all other questions and comments until after the pre-sales have ended.

-Confirming your ticket order went through? The phone lines get busy, so you may look this up yourself by viewing your ticket order and confirmation number in your online order history.

-Always remember to Just Breathe :)

Tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet! tweet! tweet!! tweet!!!

A little American birdie flew by our window, flapping his wings and tweeting loudly to get our attention. He was happy to finally have news because things happened so fast and almost didn’t happen at all! We were so happy to see him so we could tell you that he said that you should be sure your Ten Club memberships are up-to-date as of March 10 or come Thursday you could be singing a sad song. You can log into your accounts from the main page on to make sure your ducks are in a basket and eggs in a row.... errr, meaning your membership is current, addresses correct, and so on.
