Ended up with free tickets to the Guster/Ben Folds Five/Barenaked Ladies show last night (thanks, Nadine's mom!).
All three were huge favorites of mine sometime between 1996 and 2000. All three put on great shows (particularly BNL; can't even try to lie, I still love them.)
Then we went to Denny's. Then I ate a Moons Over My Hammy. Them my mom gave me an extra long hug when I got home to see if I had been smoking. Then I watched two hours of Kids in the Hall and a re-run of Win Ben Stein's Money on Comedy Central. Then Airheads came on for the millionth time, so I played Mario 64 instead. I played it for so long I was almost late for homeroom! When I got there, Mr. Bakovich took my chessboard away and he didn't even say why! I would have gotten detention if he'd heard what I said to Trevor after he walked away.

My cousin Jake is staying with us for a couple of days. We're the same age. Jake is the son of my dad's brother Joe, and because dad and Joe didn't get along very well I didn't see Jake for over twenty years.
Jake's interests include cats, Ween, sitting on the couch playing video games while drinking beer, and watching cartoons with the sound turned all the way down. He's the only person that's ever come into our home who can pick our dreaded cat Molly up off the ground without being slashed to ribbons. Dude even walks like me (which is to say, like an elephant with two legs).

...and yeah, it's hot as shit at the Gorge in July but that's a tradeoff too. You gotta play it cool during the day; rest, hydrate, try not to over-extend yourself. But you don't have to carry a bag full of clothes and shit into the venue so you don't freeze your tits off when the sun goes down, because the temperature sits at like seventy degrees. I'm all about that.

I can understand, objectively, the annoyance with this situation. But I just don't feel it myself. What this means is that, if I can afford it, I can go to Sasquatch twice in one summer. More Sasquatch is exactly what I want to do every year when I come back from Sasquatch. So, like, score.
The other side of that is that if I can't afford it, then there will be two lineups and I can pick the one I like best. The idea of there being ANY kind of Sasquatch going on that I have to miss fills me with existential dread, but I'll deal with that when I have to.
As it is, it's pretty much only every other year that a band plays the Gorge that I want to see outside of Sasquatch (Phiiiiiiish). I'm always hoping there will be more bands there over the course of a summer that I want to see, and now that's going to happen.
Shit, at least they're not Coachelling us and making us buy our tickets eleven months in advance without any idea of what the lineup is like.
