none of these stories are surprising or even mildly unexpected. that tim story especially has always bothered me. but i'll say this, too- i had an issue with some stuff i was sent some years ago, and in most respects was out of their immediate control. i bitched about it on their forum, and did so in a non-professional way. still, i was messaged by someone at 10c who made the effort - something they absolutely did not have to do in this case - to take care of me. they were also helpful and accommodating when a friend last minute couldn't make it to missoula in 2012 to pick up his tix.

so, good customer service does happen sometimes and i can actually attest to it. it's still no excuse for these other situations and 10c responses/reactions, but does demonstrate there are at least some oases in hell.

I knew someone who was a pretty hardcore concert poster collector (mainly PJ), and he bought a poster through 10c that arrived damaged. He emailed 10c about it and asked for a refund, or a replacement, either he was fine with. They had him mail it back. A couple of weeks later, he received a new poster tube in the mail from 10c, and inside was the poster he had ordered shredded into about 500 pieces.

He pieced it back together, and 10c had left written a pretty crude message on the back of it.

Classy group over there.


Here's the original shred (er, thread): http://www.blackredyellow.com/bryforums ... try3230854

Indeed - some I've forgot, others are just elsewhere on the internet.

One year/month/quarter/whatever I didn't get an edition of Deep. That was back when you know they actually sent them out and stuff. I emailed 10c. They politely responded that they would send out a copy to my address, but that it may take up to 6 months to arrive. It never arrived.

I'm not sure what is worse, that it would have taken 6 months to drop a shitty mini magazine in an envelope or that they never could pull that off.

You should call up Stone and give him a piece of your mind.

I know we all joke about Pearl Jam here and there. But this is actually bad. Worse than Lightning Bolt, nowhere near as bad as Human Clay though.

Seriously, I don't think there is anything else where I spend money on nothing, as I do with the Ten Club membership. Should use it on charity instead.

You figure they could just send out a pamphlet with some pictures of the band diddling their twats or something to keep the proles happy

just have ed scribble something on a napkin and then take a photo of it

Boom probably has some old Time magazines he could clip a few pages from

this really shouldnt' be that hard

Now's a great time to release the fabled EP they mentioned some time ago.

They're gonna need something to make up for the loss of these cancelled memberships.
