I'm getting married! The man popped the question this past Monday, and looks like we're going to pull it off on Monday, September 26 which will be our 7th anniversary. (And of course to honour the occasion, my bouquet will be nico blues ) We've been talking seriously the last month or so about making it happen, now it's actually becoming reality.
I will still bee at the vigil, but I'm going to have to jet eeeeeeeaarrrrrrllllyyyyy Sunday so no vigilstock for me
YAY congrats St3ph!!!! Did you guys meet at the vigil? I think I saw pics of your soon-to-be-husband at the vigil on some websites... I used to be completely obsessed with vigil pictures before I managed to attend it last year.. It was like the only way I could feel like I was there... Is he one that has a really badass tattoo? Man, you guys should get married in Lafayette so we could all attend! hahaha yes, Im inviting myself to the wedding... lol Im just kidding!

I took the liberty of calling the good ol Knights Inn there in Lafayette we all love and asked them about group room rates for us Melonhead Vigilgoers...the guy was all about it and was kind enough to email me some details. Basically...he said if we put it all under a company name he'd give us a business discount...SO when you call for reservations and you want to stay in the Melon block of the hotel...and get the discount...say you're with SUGAR SKY PRODUCTIONS. The reservations will be under your name, but tell them that's who you're with. here's his direct email: __________________________________________
I am setting up a room block for your group for the dates of September 23rd-26th. However I need from you an estimate of how many rooms will be needed, what types of rooms (doubles or singles), and whether each room will be arriving September 23rd and departing September 26th or if they will have different arrival and departure dates. Like I told you on the phone, the Feast of the Hunter's Moon is going on that same weekend, but I will still give your group a discount off of our rates for that weekend. For 1 full size bed I am setting up a rate of $39 + tax a night and for 2 beds, $42 + tax. I will get the block set up as soon as I hear back from you with an estimate. Because this group is going to consist of individual reservations rather than a deposit, I am going to set up a release date of August 23rd. On this date, any rooms that have not been changed from the name "Sugar Sky Productions," to an individual resrvation will be cancelled. After that date people can still call and make reservations but I can't guarantee that the rooms will be available and for those special rates. So, be sure to let everyone know that they need to make their reservations before August 23rd if they want to take advantage of the special discount. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions (765) 447-5611 Ext. 140. I hope to hear from you soon!

I think it's a pretty good deal...if I remember correctly, they tried to jack people for like 60-70 a night on "weekend" days...so it's not too bad of a discount. And damnit...as much as we trash those rooms (ben n murph I'm lookin at YOU! hahaha) the guy told me they look forward to us...sick sadistic bastards muahahahahahaha! So get on the horn before Aug and make those reservations!
Hope ya'll are stayin for Vigilstock this year....it's gonna be a hootinanny! A HOOTINANNY!!!
Thanks gabbee No, we didn't meet at the vigil, but we both liked blind melon before we met. Once I found out he liked melon that's what pretty much sealed the deal, then from there we decided to go to a vigil together. Unfortunately no marriage for us anywhere in the US, long story Not sure which tattoo you're referring to, the one in my pictures of the upper arm tattoo of shannon on the galaxie? That's not him... the pic that I put in the tattoo thread of "blind" and "melon" on the forearms is him.
Oh yes, I just went and checked out the Blind and Melon tattoo, it's just GORGEOUS! Congrats on ur wedding St3ph, I wish all the happiness in the world to you and your old man! Lauren and Zoe, you guys better get a room next to ours, we need to all stick together! YAY I cant believe we'll all be together in 4 months.. 4 FREAKING MONTHS FOLKS!
patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?
Jun 4, 2019 16:53:44 GMT -5
crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon
