    Default kind of OT: homecoming fail?

    condensed version:so nick tells me and henry that my school wasted $15k on our homecoming dance because the just wanted a big name. with a smaller name and a smaller budget we wold wake more money. his budget: "a couple hundred dollars" and ticket prices would still be $15

    heres some extra info:
    -generally, if the dance sucks one year, people wont come if you do the same thing next year

    - a couple hundred dollars for speakers and an ipod wont cut it for obvious reasons

    -for the past 2 years roughly 1800- 2000 people went to the homecoming dance
    that means the school gained 27-30k in ticket sales, minus 15k for the dj, and the monster set up they brought that leaves around 15k in profit

    not a waste

    - he said the school wasted money, however the dance is part of student councils separate budged that does not use school money. (henry is in studen council)

    so after a lot of back and forth i was pretending he wasnt serious (sadly he was) so i pulled out my ipod nano (the small one with the touch screen) opened a picture of troll face, closed one eye, and positioned the ipod to cover his face


    point of the story: this shit isnt complex to us, but it confuses the crap out of some people.....

    oh, and i have a new use for my ipod/watch

    I wonder if Steve Jobs does that in meetings when people don't agree with him?

    wait, i got a little confused.

    So he wants to not spend that much money on a big act, yet he doesnt understand that they will be making mad profit?

    He may have a point

    I don't have a clue what a homecoming gig is

    But if it's a night that everyone will go out and get mashed anyway then whay pay loads for a big name?

    Fancy flyers and posters and I bet it's still rammed with dj peckhead on the decks - and $30k profit in the bank

    according to wikipedia it's something between a prom and a frat boy party... neither of which requires a big name DJ at the decks. dancefloor-wise a big EDM name will probably achieve the exact opposite of what you intended
