BV, just curious, what's my chance of being on the floor for this show? I got Lucky Dip. I read where Minnesota & Ohio LD got lots of floor seats. What do you think? This will be my 1st Stones show

One thing, I don't get is that really bad quality they use when issuing the posters on facebook. Does FB crank up that JPG algorythm so bad so that you get all these ugly 'dirt-borders' around the edges of those pics?

See these for example:



or have alook at this detail of that tongue:



Ugly, isn't it?

I tried to polish that up a bit with PS, but that's no fun to do, I tell ya ...

This, I find, is looking better. At least the red part above, the title and the tongue...

If they upload it in high quality everbody would just print it out instead of buying it.

Sure.

But *that* bad???
OK - you can't post pics on twitter without getting that pic strongly compressed.
Well, never mind ... cool smiley

marclaff,

It's used at American sports games to help 'rally' the home team; we'll all wave them at the same time while we cheer. Usually used when the home team is losing and making a comeback.

josh.

OK i see, but is it a real towel or a poster ?
Can you use it to dry your hands ?
And is it large enough to lie on it on a beach ?

I know, a lot of questions ...while waiting for the soundcheck

No, you can't lie on the beach with it. A rally towel is basically just a hand towel decorated with team colors that fans of certain teams are known to wave around.

Thanks for the good questions and the good answers - I'd been wondering too

On Ohio, I don't know where you read that. I don't know of any--well, maybe one or two. Not common at all.

Why no large video screens used in Dallas? Maybe because it's not an NFL event or event the stadium has creative control over. Maybe the artist does not want their video feed put through to a second party which it cannot control who has a line feed?

No, you can't lie on the beach with it. A rally towel is basically just a hand towel decorated with team colors that fans of certain teams are known to wave around.

It's also good if you're hitchhiking the galaxy.

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

Don't panic and play Moonlught Mile. smiling bouncing smiley

It's basically the size of a washcloth

Have they used it for other concerts, where the stage is at one end zone? I've been to over 500 shows by various acts in many venues all over the place, but I've never seen any act use video screens that face a different direction from the stage. It seems unnatural. The screens that the Stones already have are good enough, no?

Seems like it might be a bit of a distraction to the band too. I doubt they want to see such a display in their peripheral vision while performing. Besides the light from it would detract from the light show and video's emanating from the stage.

To be more precise: Images with moving graphics should not be posted on IORR. Still images are fine. Regular images, nothing fancy. Leave the jumping rabbits etc to the circus.
