I heard K-os was pissed that he wasn't on a bigger stage or something. Kept starting then stopping songs. I've had the most trouble trying to see that dude, so now just don't even try anymore. Sounds like I made the right decision.
I feel so bad aboot Wilco. I've been casually listening to them for so long and was pretty excited to see them, but then I took my first couple of tokes in about a year right before Best Coast (who I really did not like pretty much pure personality wise). I proceeded to have the best time during the Decemberists, eat a funnel cake and then fall asleep for Wilco. This is why I don't smoke pot anymore. Also why growing up on the island that has the best bud in B.C. is not always cool.
Foo Fighters were fucking great! But you know who did suck? The asshole parents who had a problem with Cat and I sitting behind them during their set. No lie, this small group of douchebags were all up in a roar cuz we found a small piece of real estate behind them on one of those pieces of rock just above the pit - ya know what i'm talking about? - they were on the grass and we were sitting on the rock wall like 6 feet behind and 5 feet above them. (for the record, they had a couple giant blankets laid out - and well more than enough room to accommodate their retarded group)
they were like, 'don't sit there. we've been here since 4:30! we may want to lean back and sit up there later.' i was like, 'dude. you don't own this entire quarry. we're not even in your way. chill out.' and some other fuckstick was like, 'you should probably leave. he's bigger than you.' and i was like, 'i don't give a fuck how big he is. all i'm doing is sitting on a rock. you need to calm the fuck down.' and these two geriatrics got involved, 'you're being really annoying right now.' and i was like, 'me? i'm not doing anything but trying to mind my own business? who the fuck are you? shut up. this has nothing to do with you.' They quickly shut up.
once the small group realized we weren't going anywhere, they changed their tone. 'we just don't want you kicking our kids in the back of the head with your legs.' (they had like 2 tween girls who really didn't even give a shit that Foo Fighters were even about to play)
to which i replied, 'seriously? you think i'm going to kick a child? in the back of the head? who does that? how bout you turn around and watch the show. you won't even notice we're here. It's totally cool. I promise not to kick your kids.'
it was around that time Cat and the mother got into a heated discussion about parenting skills. The woman had been smoking and exhaling all over her kids, yet she was all concerned about Cat and I interfering with their children.
Cat quickly put that bitch in check. Don't fuck with a redhead, folks. they's feisty!
They pretty much left us alone after that.
What fucking fuckheads.
Man, I wish we'd spent more time with you guys. I would pay money to see this interaction. (but only if you kick the children)
I got so freaking bored during Wilco, and I really like Wilco. I loved the decemberists set, but I could not handle Wilco. Then I was super bummed when we got to Major Lazer's set like 10 min before it ended. Poor planing on my part.
