read for reason:
Either they sell them for face value, or give them away in competitions? Anything other than this would be cuntish, obviously
I don't particularly like the NME, but really, what's the problem?
why this means they suck?
bamos speaketh the truth
NME has got a lot better recently? this time last year it was a pile of..
'buy our magazine and THEN you can go'
and there is still a really slim chance you'll get tickets. bumholes.
and I'll raise you a surely-the-majority-of-people-that-read-NME.com-buy-the-magazine-anyway?
that point made no sense
people aren't allowed to have competitions now? Or promote the fact that they are?
I still don't get why this makes NME bad. So they're running a competition? I'll wager those people who tried to get tickets and failed spent over Â£1.95 (the cost of the NME) on phonelines thrying to get through.
If I didn't have tickets and didn't already buy the NME every week, I'd probably consider buying the NME especially and entering the competition. Why not?
and not just in NME.
I'm really really confused as to why this makes the NME bad.
Just another poorly thought out excuse to slag off a magazine when there's no real need.
you had to prove you read the NME every single week.
there was a quiz on conor mcnicholas and everything.
but I was replying to dove-from-above response to sarkyfox specifically. "surely-the-majority-of-people-that-read-NME.com-buy-the-magazine-anyway?" was irrelevant in response to sarkyfox?
it'd be "read our magazine and get tickets".
if a magazine has them for a competition then so be it.
that we're talking about ~0.25% of the tickets, they wouldn't have made a real difference anyway.
go to borders and read it there.
i was in a rush and it was the first word that came to my head. dont look into everything so deep peeps!
"dont look into everything so deep peeps!"
i officially hate anybody who is so anti discussion as to say this, at least in this situation.
apologies. im just proper busy and i saw that on my lunch break. retract the DIE statement please, im tooo young.
in which you make a statement and then say people are looking at it too deep when they disagree.
*packs bag full of DIS possessions and puts thumb on road looking for lift*
Judging by this logic, we should ban all competitions from here on in
Funnily enough, I'm currently in the process of sueing Kinder. I mean, why the fuck should I have to pay out for one of their crappy little eggs to get the FREE toy? I mean, it's 'free' right? I'll just take the little plastic helicopter please
just go into a shop, smash the egg and just say u are having the 'free' toy.
They don't like it
went into a corner shop and ate the "free" 50% of sa bunch of products.
it was LOL
i saw that. it was fucking hilarious!
stubryce, I think NME is getting better again. Last week's had LOADS of good stuff in it, and the articles are getting longer.
It's been on the rise now for about a year or so, after the lull of the previous couple of years.
It may not be to everyone's tastes, but...whatever.
(can't remember the cover) but it was before the Radiohead one was the best NME in ages. I guess it depends on what tehy have to work with though, and SXSW was on so it had to help.
In any event they went and ruined it by giving Fall Out Boy single of teh week.
because i never win, ever. I don't think I'll ever buy the NME again, everytime I buy it I regret it.
