This year's videos turned out quite a bit longer than last year's, but I couldn't bring myself to cut a lot of stuff out. I think I caught some pretty great moments (the sunset at Haim, the end of "Terrible Love"), but there were so many more that now exist only in our memories.
I don't think I ever noticed anything from the SGL stage bleeding over, but the Narwhal sure did. Nothing worse than getting into a show like Phosphorescent and then hearing a hip hop group (Gifted Gab perhaps?) playing in between songs. Talk about a mood killer.
The Narwhal stage seemed a lot louder than last year, or maybe it was more noticeable because it ran later this year. I found it most irritating during Rodriguez and he seemed visibly annoyed by it between songs too.
Most awkward: During 'Make It Wit Chu' I looked around and saw a lot of people either hugging or sucking face or whatever. I was not doing this so I thought I would be hilarious and kiss Nick on the cheek. I believe I missed and got some lip. Luckily alcohol is the cure for all awkward and I had a lot of alcohol that day.
I think we both had the same idea but we'd been making so many bad decisions all day that we were both a little off target. I think I mostly got beard.
I got set lists from both The National and QOSTA and the both skipped songs that were supposed to be played. Not to mention that Queens left the stage 20 minutes early and still left a song or two off, one of which was Faireweather Friends dammit. But my God, they were amazing!
I haven't seen Fairweather Friends live in the four times I've seen them since the new album was released. The internet will probably prove me wrong, but it might be a song they don't play live.
It would be hard to pull off live, given the lack of Trent and Sir Elton in the touring band.

Same deal as last year, I took a minute or two of video from every act I saw over the weekend and edited them together into one video per day. I got the first two days done last night and uploaded this morning. I should have the third one up tomorrow.
Unfortunately ultimately I'm just a white girl in a crowd of white girls at the Gorge.
Seriously. There were about a hundred times I thought I saw you, but I'm pretty sure it was a different girl each time. Oddly enough, I didn't see anyone that even resembled what my brain told me Burrito looks like, but that's probably because my brain was off duty most of the weekend.
I was dammit! I was keeping an eye out for you all weekend but I'm also REALLY BAD AT THAT.
I kinda figured. I kept an eye out for you, Burrito, and Goldbeard all weekend since you are the three I thought I would most likely recognize, but all I saw was a lot of Goldbeard (which is never a bad thing). Also, I lack many social skills like the ability to talk to people even if I think I might know them (see: my interaction with Fig).

Weenie, were you on the group after Eric Andre when I met Goldbeard, HG, and Stormy? I feel like there were more boarders there, but it was such chaos and the group dispersed before proper introductions could be made.
My thought was that they got skipped b/c the festival and/or Phantogram didnt want to push back their hyped (and godawful) evening set. regardless, it was a huge disappointment and a terrible way to start the weekend.
Cancelled. The schedule on the mobile app said it, but I didn't see or here it announced anywhere else. Edit: also what Davers said.
