Sitting in the Monarch Room attending to the new rule making here in the great state of Oregon. In case you didn't already know, we made cannabis legal here, and I am participating in my first non criminal marijuana related activity. Looks like they are expecting quite a few people. I am enjoying USA I, II, III, and IV by a Dan Deacon person I read about on here somewhere? Quite an interesting quatrile, I wish I could share it with everyone here in the room - wouldn't that be a splashy episode, especially this part playing right now. Have a few johnny law types here, one dude in a nutshell denunciation form.
The previous sentence was intended to say a dude in a nice uniform, but my auto fill thing typed in something much funnier, so I left it that way for your reading enjoyment. You're welcome.
In which Sasquatch venue do you think Mr. Deacon will play his jams? Tent, main stage? What time of day? I think seeing him in person is on my list.
Fifteen minutes until hearing starts. Back to beginning of album for another listen.
Sadly, Mr Deacon will not be at Sasquatch this year. Happily, your post reads like you are definitely enjoying a legal cannabis event.

Had to go to Richland tonight for an all day training tomorrow. Went to the Atomic Ale brewpub and had the Atomic Amber and Half-Life Hefe, both were excellent, and some good pizza too. I don't recommend going to the tri-cities ever if you can help it, but if you're ever sentenced to a night there, I recommend checking them out.

Turns out I was supposed to get a $250/month raise back in October, but my district manager fucked up the paperwork so it didn't happen. Talked to HR today and they're putting it through right away and making it retroactive so I'll get the difference for the last four and a half months all at once. Kinda makes up for the whole no tax return thing this year.
I honestly hope not. Nothing against him at all, I just don't want them wasting too much money booking these decent mid-card acts whenI they could be putting it toward a killer headliner. I know that might be backward thinking in typical festival terms, but Friday already feels bottom heavy to me and adding Angel Olson and The Tallest Man on Earth isn't going to fix that.
Did you guys hear about the Kendrick Lamar incident at Air+Style last weekend? Apparently he either left his set or was told to leave 45 minutes early because of sound problems. He didn't play any new material either. I've never anything but amazing things about his live shows so this is new. Hopefully this won't happen at his Sasquatch show because I'm really looking forward to seeing him.
From what I read, that whole festival was a clusterfuck. However, Kendrick does have kind of a hit or miss reputation, from what I've gathered. Considering that was his first major live performance (other than tv appearances) this year and the sound system sucked, I'm cutting him some slack there. Luckily, he has a couple months to get it together and the Gorge tends to bring out the best in people. I'm confident that the combination of Sasquatch magic and having Q and Ab-Soul around will inspire him to take it to the next level.
