Its unfortunate that he's decided to lean back on his laurels, and hopefully this won't hold true in the next years. I do feel like he may be counting on that squatch afterglow to dull any backlash that may occur, but I have a feeling that he's probably dead wrong there. Or who knows? We could all get blown the fuck away. Wouldn't it be funny if all these bands who we say are not headliners turn out to not actually be the headliners, and we're hit with three huge announcements in the days leading up to the fest?
I know we all know this isn't going to happen, but the festival is still 2+ months away, and really, who does know?
This is one hundred percent devils advocatry, by the way. I totally agree with you, bradberad.

This article is one in a series called "What Ever Happened to Alternative Nation," chronicling alternative music one year at a time starting in 1990. Its really good. The AV club is quickly sucking away my time... Their writers are super good.

I have to vigorously second friendly here on finding a tattoo artist you like and having them design something. My Hylian Crest wouldn't have turned out anywhere near as awesome as it is without Ximena's input, which came from her almost immediately upon my sending her a picture of it. Good artists really get what you want, and have the experience, knowledge, and creativity to expand on your original idea to points you never even would have dreamed of. And yes, this is a recommendation for Ximena, since you're moving to P-land anyways.
Best line: But no matter how hard I tried to give Korn a fair shake—which, truth be told, probably wasn’t that hard—my personal grudge against the band had turned into an unstoppable Anton Chigurh rampaging across the terrain with nothing but bloody murder on its mind.
