Yeah, apparently the entire security team walked off the job by day two. davers has a great story about a friend that showed up to the gate without a ticket and a dog on a leash. One of the security guards at the gate just wanted to pet the dog and the other was hanging out of a tree high on acid, I believe?
So, if this year's fest is only half of the clusterfuck as that year, I'll be highly impressed. But I'm prepping for security guards dangling from trees on acid.
Each person is allowed each of the items listed -- so a case of beer and a 2 bottles of wine, etc. Also, I read a comment on the facebook page a while back where they said you're allowed to go back to your car to get items, including more booze.
Plus, it's probably not that hard to put some of it on your backpack and they'll never know. I'm sure, like other festivals, the only part they might actually care about is glass containers.

Maybe the Taqueria here in Vancouver is a chain, but it's definitely just commonly used to mean "taco shop" in the states. I've seen tons of places called taqueria or had the the word taqueria as part of their name down there. I don't think it's a trademarked name in quite the same way you're thinking as with Pizza Hut; it's more like a place being called "corner store" or "smoke shop".
I have a feeling that this is the album deadmau5 has wanted to create his entire career, but never had the balls to make. It's a double album with almost two and a half hours of dark, glitchy, beautiful, and introspective tracks that flow together seemlessly. There isn't a single club banger, and no songs whatsoever that 17 year old girls on molly can sing along to. There is also some serious fucking Trent Reznor worship happening throughout the entire thing, complete with classic NIN sounding pianos and even a How to Destroy Angels and NIN remix on each disc. Just in case the listener needed any more of a reminder of where Joel got the inspiration for this album. Despite that, there is still plenty of the patented deadmau5 sound on it. Most of which takes me back to the earliest songs I ever heard from him. I'm absolutely stoked to hear him finally making music for himself again, because that's always been where he's put out his best work.
This seems like another reason why you should be trying to get up here for Pemberton, just so you can see if he plays any of this live.
Also, this makes me way more excited to see him now too 'cause the last time I saw him was at that stupid one day electronic fest at BC Place where he did his "unhooked" set that he finished 20 minutes early for no reason whatsoever. This sounds like it could potentially redeem him for me.
Get a job in the hospitality industry -- the hotel I work at feeds me everyday for free. I save a lot on groceries, I think, but sometimes that means I have absolutely no food in the house for weeks and end up eating out way too much when I'm not at work.
I had a delicious bowl of ramen for breakfast/lunch and, even though that was only 3 hours ago, now I'm eating a huge plate of chilli con carne salad 'cause it's one of the better things my work makes for dinner and if I don't eat it now I'll miss out. I'm gonna be sooo full for the next 5 hours, thank god I work in a back office and can unbutton my pants.
I definitely doubt it. I have to say, though, that it truly is a relief that my commitment to the highest possible standards for grammar and punctuation are shared by the majority of the people on this board. Nothing rankles me more than being obliged to take the time to read something written by someone who couldn't be even be bothered to put a capital letter at the beginning of their sentence. Lack of punctuation, LOL-speak, run-on sentences cobbled together with improperly used ellipses... All of these things fill me with rage. But nothing gets to me as much as an indifference to proper capitalization.
Greetings, I am eager to engage you in linguistic debate. It appears that you favor prescriptive grammar over descriptive grammar, an opinion I consider most ill-informed.
To start, I shall attempt to make it clear what I mean by prescriptive grammar as opposed to other types. A prescriptive grammar is a set of rules detailing how someone (whoever made those rules) thinks a language should be used, whereas a descriptive grammar is simply a codification of how a language is actually used by its speakers. In the context of this debate, descriptive grammar is an acceptable and less harmful alternative to prescriptive grammar; however, I should not be construed to be arguing expressly for it.
My argument is comprised of two stages: First, that prescriptive grammar is largely unnecessary in modern times, and second, that it is harmful to children, and especially to minorities. These conditions (assuming I fulfill my burden in demonstrating them) should be sufficient to make the case that prescriptive grammar does more harm than good.
This is how all newbs should respond to us ragging on their lack of punctuation and failure to find their shift keys.
