I'm back....

Well, I'm back and I survived. It's 1am and I need to wind down a little. So I'm going to give some quick thoughts on Bonnaroo while I eat some Cheetos!!

First - I have determined that my list of music festival essentials is not the same as many of the other festival go-ers. My list included:
  • Sunblock (because I hate, hate, hate sunburn. Tan, yes. Sunburn, no.)
  • Toilet paper (because that stuff always runs out FAST!)
  • Hand sanitizer (because, well, because not to use this is just gross when you can't readily wash your hands!!!)
  • Imodium (because I'm NOT getting diarrhea from eating that greasy, crappy food!)

The other festival go-er's list included:

  • Beer
  • Weed
  • Other assorted pharmaceuticals
  • Hula hoop
  • Bubbles
  • Fairy wings
  • Glo-sticks

Second, band highlights...

  • Pearl Jam is FANTASTIC!!! A set pushing 3 hours!
  • B. B. King is a class act!
  • So is Jack Johnson!
  • The Raconteurs - Jack White is amazing!
  • Gogol Bordello has the most fun show, ever!
  • Who else did I see? Right now, my mind is starting to shut down and I can't really remember....

More later..................

You and I would make excellent concert-partners. Those are EXACTLY the sorts of things I would bring--in fact, I bring most of that stuff with me everywhere I go.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun.
