Name: Meghan What my user name represents/means: It's my rapper/DJ name neither of those things can I actually do.

My All-Time Favorite Artist: The National First Concert Attended: NSYNC at age 12, and it was awesome. Last Concert Attended: The Lonely Forest? All time Favourite Concert: Bat for Lashes at Wonder Ballroom or Sigur Ros at Edgefield All time Favourite Festival: Haven't been to many others besides Sas and I'm not sure anywhere else could be better.

I take a couple weeks off and all of a sudden long-term lurkers are feeling comfortable enough to post here?

Mase was a singular occurrence. This regulars here have spent so much time together in the real world that this place has turned into one gigantic circle jerk. That's both a good and a bad thing -- on the one hand, I have made the largest and finest group of friends that I've ever had in my life. On the other, this place has become terribly vanillafied.

I feel they will have more electronic artists this year maybe 4 per night instead of two, and I can also see Arcade Fire, Queens of the Stoneage, but also maybe a classic rock act in there too like Black Sabbath, they're on tour in april. Also maybe Deadmau5, Skrillex, Avicii? I could see Grimes coming back too

My ma went into the hospital with acute kidney failure a little less than two weeks ago. There have been some pretty tense moments in the meantime, but we finally got a diagnosis -- Goodpasture's syndrome, an extremely rare and particularly aggressive auto-immune disorder. Even the most optimistic outlook is shaping up to involve a kidney transplant.
Which is more or less the reason I haven't been around much lately. I've got a fair amount of catching up to do; more than I've had in years. I still love you bastards, you all know that. Just, y'know. Real life happens sometimes.

Fucking unacceptable, I swear to fucking Christ.
In other news: Although I may have enjoyed Reflektor, the real reason that I hate Arcade Fire? Fans who act like those hideous Canadian dickbags are woven from holy flesh and who feel the need to get fucking militant about fucking radio-friendly pop music. I am so incredibly fucking glad that they are headlining the Gorge on their own, because the campground during Arcade Firesquatch would be the least tolerable it's been since fucking Kings of Leon. Not to mention that there is literally no way in hell they're going to sell out the Gorge, and at the end of this tour when it becomes clear that they've played to a string of half-empty arenas hopefully the process of their inevitable fading away will begin.

Fuck. That. I'm sorry, but FUCK that. Unless you can create and support a claim which will qualify as legitimate medication the fucking tankard of Jack Daniels you must have consumed to be making statements like that, then don't you fucking dare start casting aspersions on the substance which allows me to eat, sleep and manage damn near crippling anxiety. And if it's true that marijuana compromises my intelligence (which it isn't), then even in my perpetually stoned condition I am far more fucking intelligent than you are and that is a fucking FACT.
Enjoy your vacation, Rusty, but stay the fuck off the board when you're drinking if that's how you're going to be.
Aw, let's not start banning drunk posters, she said, consistently drunk.
Not drunk posters in general, just Drunk Rusty in particular. Every six or seven months he has one too many and gets all bitchy, and usually with someone who's been around just as long as he has. Dr. Garbanzohting with Pea is sooooo 2010.
