Attending 9/12/2011 8:30 taping and need some general input!
« on: August 24, 2011, 04:32:57 PM »
Hello everyone.  New to Golden-road.net but long time TPIR fan.

My wife got us tickets to the 9/12 taping at 8:30 in the morning.  Need some ideas on arrival time, parking, etc.  I have noticed a K-mart down the street (ggogel maps) and was wondering about parking there or if I should stick with the Grove parking.  Also wondering about the best arrival time because I have read a lot of conflicting suggested times.

Also I was wondering if my wife who is gorgeous, or myself who is going to be SUPER EXCITED about even going to the taping will have a batter chance of getting picked?!?

Hope to also meet some people there and if you are going to that taping let me know and we can meet!

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Welcome to the site. :) While [http://www.golden-road.net/index.php/topic,5166.0.html this] is a good guide in general, it has not been updated in over three years and some things have changed in that time.

While I myself have not been to the show, I have certainly read enough to give you some basic pointers:

* It would be good to arrive about an hour or so earlier than the time you stated (about 7:30). Due to the way audience members are seated now, you may get put anywhere regardless of when you arrive.

* Bring something to read, as it is usually a long wait.

* Do NOT bring a cell phone; they will be confiscated and put into a box, which shall be dumped out after the taping so you can retrieve it. It is simply not worth the hassle.

* Have fun, and do not forget to tell us how it went! (But please do not spoil any specific details, as that is not allowed by this site.)

Also I was wondering if my wife who is gorgeous, or myself who is going to be SUPER EXCITED about even going to the taping will have a batter chance of getting picked?!?
* Your chances depend on your interview with Stan Blits, which is brief since there are so many people. Be yourself, but not fake.

...The above said, Mike Richards (the executive producer) has final say based solely on photographs. Based on that, I would say that your wife is more likely to be chosen.

But please do not get your hopes up --  while it could happen, you should not expect to be chosen as you will almost certainly end up disappointed.

* Finally, do not mention this site or that you are a member of it! The staff monitors this site, and they hate us for several reasons; anyone found to be a member will almost certainly be seated in the back and will certainly have zero chance of being selected.

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

^Apologies. Here is the link I tried to make in that post. A few more tips I thought of:

* Do not yell during the show about how much anything sucks; while the staff will almost certainly agree with you, they cannot say that out loud for fear of being fired -- you, on the other hand, shall almost certainly be marked as a member of this site, likely get carted off by security, and perhaps even banned from ever appearing in the studio again. I am being very serious.

* If you attend a playing of Clock Game, do as Drew says and do not speak; at least one person has been escorted from the studio regarding this.

* If you see a "special" show and you think it is terrible, do not worry -- the staff is very likely making fun of it.
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

Great info Guy!  Thanks a lot.

I am not expecting to "come on down" but it would sure be EPIC if it happened.  Like I said, just being there will be so awesome!

The Grove parking lot suggested on the tickets maxes out at $24 for the day after 7 hours, which is overall a good deal - you can eat up after the long grind of processing / taping at the Farmer's Market at your leisure by that point.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

So I doubled checked with my wife on the tickets she got.  They are OCA (on camera audiences) Line vouchers?  Is this the right thing we need to get in line and then get our OOA tickets?  I believe she got them right off the CBS site and then it was e-mailed to us.

Is this the correct first ticket in??
