I feel like if I did Bonnaroo again, I would be a lot more prepared and I would enjoy it a lot more.
I went in 2010, and it was my first festival and I made a lot of mistakes: No canopy, got hammered drunk during the day, didn't do drugs, went with a girl when our relationship was on it's last legs, didn't get any sleep on the Wednesday night because I was drinking at the wal-mart, saw a bunch of main stage shows during the day, etc.
Plus I was completely unprepared for how debilitating that heat was. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before.
Also, I know people like to make jokes about the crowd at Coachella, but the crowd at Bonnaroo was my nightmare. There's only so many drum circles and patchuli oil I can take over the span of a weekend.
I would like to give Bonnaroo another shot, but the lineup would have to be pretty damn amazing for me to go.
The oddest part of this year was that not a single drum circle or or waft patchulli did I find. I don't know if Burrito, Phil, Nadine or anyone else saw one. I was quite shocked. Last year I participated in a 2 hour long drum circle.

I have a terrible painful confession.
I've created/propagated a few memes in my day, back when imageboards were young.
I feel partially responsible for two... that were on the 4chan image board.
Oh and also I helped put a child molester in jail in Canada by pretending to be a 14 year old girl and forwarding all the records and pics he sent to the police in Canada as part of an Anonymous vigilante effort.
I just do not understand how people can tolerate of Montreal 2.0. It is so god damn shrill and atonal. And it completely lacks any subtlety whatsoever.
Even so, I wish Barnes would understand that I would pay out my ass to see them play if they would play even one track off of their first five albums. Seriously! JUST ONE FUCKING TRACK from The Gay Parade or Coquelicot or Aldhils Arboretum. I don't even care if he's dressed up as a transvestite pig with a bowling pin sticking out of his ass or whatever. I don't care if it's all dancey-dance electro-funk and there's not one single kazoo. They need to fucking acknowledge the fans that fed and housed them for the first ten fucking years of their career.

The Black Keys filmed a video downtown yesterday. I found the location at 6 but there had been a line there since 4:30. Stayed outside for a bit to hear them play, also waved at them when they were outside by the crowd.
Decided to head over to Of Montreal and caught their show.
