Delayed Gratification

Delayed Gratification
Delayed gratification.

I sincerely hope it is worth it.

You see there's this thing where something has been in the pipeworks for several months. Lots of money, time and effort has been put into making it happen and then BAM... a week prior to the event occuring the event is delayed by a handful of days. The event is then reduced in length but will still go ahead. Ok. A bit of a bummer. But ok. We still get the event and the figure of hope. Thus, it's still OK. Cause in one way or another i'll still get to be a part of it.

THEN BAM AGAIN! Cancelled. The event is cancelled due to serious issues that are out of our control.

The issues that it's been cancelled for is all very good and important and none of us helpers/organisers disagree with the reasoning. So it's OK. But damn dissapointing. DAMN DISSAPOINTING!!! When you're all built up for something and a week out from it occuring and then it just changes and changes and changes... and well, let's face it. The communication line was not the greatest. It was all announced to us by 3rd party people, not directly until after the fact. So that always makes it a bit of a bummer too, to not hear it first from the people it should come from. Oh well.

I guess the good thing is that since the event has been cancelled it means it has been rescheduled for the June time-period. Which is great! I'll still be in the same role, hopefully... and will get to be a part of it. I am told that it'll be a bigger, better, faster, stronger event too! Which means that'll be even better than what was meant to happen this week. I guess it's just more of an issue about waiting and having patience.

Delayed gratification. It better be worth it. I guess we should all be looking to the 'Nightly Studio' at the end of June to see the photos, to see if it was worth the wait!

So it sounds like the only real issue was the lack of communication. No surprise there, even when people have good reasons for cancelling **** they're scared to give the news. The bigger the event the more the fear.

Totally dude. I hate poor communication. But in relation to this, it's one of those things that we're totally OK about bieng cancelled... because well... the guy who was meant to come can do whatever he likes and it's pretty much all good and fine.

I dont think it was so much as them being scared to give the news. More that it was information that was, in essence, Classified and thus no able to be distributed, but instead we found out through other mediums (eg: the media etc...) that the event was cancelled. So... it's just lame like that.

But June will be good.
