Sorry duder, the online version of things smashes her all together, often making the layout different than the print version. All that kind of stuff is changing as the paper and website get updated. To answer your question: Yes, I have heard of paragraph, but I am a huge Henry James fan, thus a long paragraph fan.
In fact I was in a building that included quite a number of folks nodding off during the second half of the show, something I chose to leave out of the review. By the last quarter of the show, every third seat around me was empty, left behind by folks too tired from work to appreciate a two-hour set of rock and roll. I didn't make fun of any the aesthetics you accuse me of making fun of. As a matter of fact, I have long hair, embrace power chords, and have stood on a stage with Grohl back in the day. The dude is in an odd place in rock music, as his band. They themselves mock rock stardom in their own videos while simultaneously making more rock star moves during their live shows. And how do you think I know that the show was reminiscent of Van Hagar? I saw that "Live Without a Net" tour at the Portland Memorial Coliseum. Grohl and Hagar share similar traits in that they both are good at getting the crowd going, a skill in itself. I also find capitalizing words for emphasis to be churlish and lazy writing.
I said you would go and have fun. I never said anything about the Pixies. But I know in twenty years people will still talk about the Pixies, not GLO.
As far as the passes go, here's the deal: folks ought to know by now that they can't stroll up to a window when it's been dumping for days and grab their pass right quick. Pick that unit up in town at one of the many places where they were being doled out BEFORE the season starts. That said, a buddy of mine made a fine suggestion--"Charge me five bucks and mail the F$$5er to me". Agreed.
