Best shows I caught:
Gov’t Mule. Simple as that. I missed all of the FLips because I was right up front and the Mule does not let you leave. Cant You See, Mule>Ive Been Workin>Mule, Hunger Strike>Dr Mr Fantasy>Hunger Strike, DONT STEP ON THE GRASS SAM.
Late night PGroove. Me and Thom were out of our minds… And there was only about 30 people there. I was dancing by the stage when I noticed Thom was gone… Only to be found mumbling the mumblings of a melted mind in the back corner. Thank Helen we made our way back!
Les Claypool. Buckethead and Bernie Worrell appearance to make Col Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie BALDY HEAD (Mike Dillon). SICK. Plus Les encored with some solo song where he was playing the banjo. Never seen it before, and it really blew me away.
Disco Biscuits first night. Not sure if it was the liquid that hit my tongue this night, but I was bouncing all around that tent. Being the obnoxious person bumping into people is fun, until you think about what your doing. But your mind doesn’t let your body stop doing what your doing. Waka Waka.
Railroad Earth. Of course I’m picking them, of course of course.
Keller and the Keels. Just great. My second time seeing them, and they really impress me again. Legalize It > Soul Shakedown was just unbelieveable, and a Dupree’s Diamond Blues… Yes.
Wes Mantooth. The Legend of Wakarusa. It is amazing what people will come up with when you put them in the hot Kansas sun for four days and marijuana smoke is constantly flowing through their brain. We turned the vegan dog into a bologna loving fool. And don’t forget about Mick Toothless, the wook who is the current carer for Wes Mantooth.
Russia and Chechnya. A bunch of pot-heads who can’t put up a canopy correctly, and have to fix it every five minutes. It added entertainment if nothing else.
The beach/lake. Oh wow how much that was needed. Plus our Terrapin and Shamu floats, perfect!
Holding hands with Thom AGAIN. Its heavenly I tell ya!
Marianne attempting to tell a story about lucky charms, or someone in a tree, or something… But not being able to get through it without laughing hysterically. It trully was something that made me smile.
Vern’s son saying, “No, I don’t buy weed. I’m a mooch and I’m just gonna smoke all of yours.” Great.
Wook #18 barging into Chechnya.
Least favorite moments.
Paranoia caused from about 1,000 cops/sherrifs/park officials ALL over the park. Shakedown Street getting busted constantly. Night-vision binoculars, people being tackled in the main concert area, road blocks set up all over the surrounding area.
The crazy bitch I had to drive down. Driving into the place, she was on my trunk… And I guess I sped up to quick, because the next thing I know she is in the middle of the road curled up in a ball… Waiit… Maybe this one should go in my favorite moments section… Just kidding… Not really though.
Ohhh… I can’t even think right now… I am sure there is more to come though. I need some sleep after this 13 hour drive though.
Oh… and whos got my headie deet?
