Boilergasm Retard Yelling could be the funniest thing i've heard this month. Daaamn...and 40,000 people at the Drink Beer After Running fiasco? At an unlikely 4 persons to a car, that's 10,000 cars. Um where?
That's nothing! Reed claimed the race takes in !!!!OVER EIGHT MILLION MAJOR DOLLARS!!!! forgetting of course for that to be true each of the imaginary 40000 would have to spend $200 apiece and you know THAT crowd doesn't look like they could shell $60!

This settles it there is a serious credibility problem with people from CNY.

Went Saturday to see ETG and The Elders. Had a great time but it's gotten to be a $100 swing with 10 drink ticks ($45) for a couple to attend this thing. I guess if you calculate the number of quality bands you can see on all stages then $20 is a deal but who's going to sit there for 12 hours a day. Next year I think we'll listen to ipods at Tinys and get a corned beef sandwich. It wasn't that great of a festival.

But isn't it more than just bands and beer? I see people every year that I don't see very often. Catch up on things. Enjoy the vendors. Buy things. Its just a greaat time. I love it and I don't give a dam about matt or the committee or any of the other crap. We don't get out much without kids and this is one of those rare weekends when we do. The music, the Guinness, the merchandise, the Celtic mass, and the comradere is well worth a hundred plus

The numbers mean they can afford to keep Matt Sullivan spending money like Diamond Jim Brady and have enough left over to maybe get the hole pumped out.

Another wonderful example of utica's idea of contractors, developers, "entrepreneurship" and "smart people"!

The saddest part is, my family left youtiscum decades ago save 2. In our adopted town they gave and spent and enabled success and today I am still amazed at how many people spontaneuosly use the word graceful and generous when it comes to the last name.

You know, like the Gaetanos or Reeds except "Normal real" not "Fake for show". The people these people wish they were without the shit reputation.

Many towns have real benefactors. Utica has "Plays one on tv" benefactors. Funny thing is I can think of about 20 people who would come to utica and show these people what the fuck getting business done and things built means. Not "upstate contractor". Too bad my family all told everyone they'd disown us if we ever went back and now I know why for real!

Admit you all lost and I promise to piss dad off enough to buying the shit property for a peanut and spending 50k to make it so utica would have to pay $2m to ever put anything there again and WALK!

<quoted text>That a utica trait for you! Tim Reed does the same thing uticans cannot be trusted to tell it like it is they're desperate to always have things sound "major" so they inflate everything to laughable and physical impossibility for example the fact that the space they have the Boilergasm Retard Yelling and sewage party cannot POSSIBLY hold 40000 people yet the media just prints the lies unchecked because hey, if no one challenges a utican lie it becomes truth somehow.
54000 yeah right!!!! Do the math you could build 8 centers with that kind of attendance or make your self alot right matty

Whatever the number is and i really don't think it's 53,000 i think he is counting gate clicks. that includes the 3 day pass. Has anyone thought of the revenue that comes from the booths? I know it started cheap and from the understanding i have they sure aren't anymore. so please add that into the total for Matt's pocket change.

No it's not....i want the festival to succeed, I want the cultural center built! All that's happened under Matt's leadership is a pit on Columbia St. It's time for the board of directors to kick his ass out and put in someone who can get the job done and not just line their pockets!

You would think someone from the ICC would be smart enough to move that GAIF Trailor from the swimming pool and put up a Sons of Italy banner!:)

So true. This area abounds with phonies and pretenders. Low class scumbags. And a lot of people get sucked into the world of BS here in the city and the valley. People with real cash and class do not have to appear on the TV every other night to prove who they are.
