Please tell me about your diary entry where you about rubbed up a girl's breast while dancing at the Sigur Ros show and how much you wanted to tell her that you can bond together over Slint. But you never worked up the courage and she's gone. But that's OK. Because Slint's self importance makes you feel self important. F those hoes. Remember that time you studied all night while listening to EITS and made an 88%? Never forget.
This might be my favorite post in years. And I like/love post-rock.
Speaking your mind often gets you a negative reaction. Kanye does it for money, mine is simply a more personal matter of, I'm going to speak my mind because its mine, and who I am. I'm one of those people you either love or hate. Kanye is one also, so I guess we have that in common.
Got a few questions while I was messing around with MM today snowmanpj
1.) How come no artwork show up on my iPod even though they appear in mediamonkey? I'm not too good/familiar with tagging and artwork on files when not using iTunes.
2.) How can I organize my podcasts? I've re-subscribed to some of the ones I want to keep but I guess the podcasts didn't keep great records when tagging or something because some of them are all out of order and there's no simple way to sort it by track or episode # like an album. I'm kind of lost here and do a lot with podcasts so need to try and figure this out.
1. No idea. I haven't had this issue before. One thing that it could be is if there is a .jpg file that is associated with the album within the media monkey software, rather than that .jpg being part of the file's metadata. I just went and quickly looked through my ipod and the only stuff that doesn't have artwork is also missing artwork in media monkey itself.
2. Do you subscribe to the podcasts through media monkey? or download them and then import them into media monkey? I have MM download my podcasts for me, and haven't had issues with it. I don't listen to a lot of podcasts, but all of my Umphrey's, Marc Maron, Radiolab, and Wait Wait don't tell me podcasts are automatically downloaded and sorted via MM.
How was this? I really hope I can attend one of these years. I also hope I'll go to PA ons of these years lol
Ellie it was this past weekend I really enjoyed myself and would tooootally go back (if they do it again)! Here are some scattered thoughts about the weekend:
It was small and different than most festivals. I was able to get rail for every headliner with extremely minimal effort. There was an acoustic stage where they did short sets in between the sets on the main stage as well as had it going for a while (hour or two?) after the headliners. It was quite easy to switch between stages all day and have a great spot each time. It is too bad that we didn't have great weather (it wasn't bad though), because there was a beach stage that faced the sand and the water. I did catch a set there, but I can see it being very popular if it was actually sunny as you could sit in the water and watch/listen. GA camping had better location that VIP camping and cabins (in my opinion). It had a shorter walk and we had no security check (until you walked into the main venue) and everyone else was checked before camping/getting to their cabins. It was also flat by GA and everyone else had to walk a little hill to get to the main music area. I wish there were more food vendors. Pie for the People was there and a sandwich/burger place had two locations. If I knew the food would be so limited, I would have brought much more substantial food with me. Beer was really good. Tasty local (?) options that were onl7 6 bucks. Gansett for $4. Never really had any lines anywhere and staff and volunteers, although not always knowledgeable, were very nice and friendly. The wibit was a lot of fun, but so hard! I didn't participate in most of the other extras- cornhole, beer pong, tennis, basketball... They didn't bomb the grounds and there was a NUTS amount of bugs- spiders every 2 inches, crickets and grasshoppers absolutely everywhere, plus various slugs, silverfish, etc.. And they should have walked the grounds right before opening as there was tons of wild animal poop. Both in the camping area and even in the main venue. Portos were always in good shape.

SummerDance was an awesome time. Thanks to all you inforoosters who met up with me before Boombox, it was great to get to hang out with you on Friday Night. I would like to see that picture that was taken of all of us on Friday, I forget who exactly took it.
Lotus was amazing both nights. Wax was my favorite song of the fest, and Lotus opening the second set on Saturday with Spiritualized and then completing it near the end of the set made me lose my shit.
Met him in high school in 1992 when I started dating his best friend. We all became great friends, hung out all the time. I then dumped his one friend for his other best friend. That was a fun time. Then, in September 1994 we met up at a football game & here we are. 20 years next Monday to be exact.
Most embarrassing moment? Speeches. Any and every one I have ever done. I am terrible at public speaking. I was student body president & never failed to make a fool of myself when I had to give a speech. I've tripped, choked on a peppermint, almost passed out.
Who is your oldest friend and how/when did you meet?
My friend Leigh, who I have known ever since I can remember. We stayed in touch even when I moved two states away our 6th grade year. I was in her wedding & she was in mine. We don't see each other a lot, but when we do it's like no time has gone by. It's nice.
Favorite drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic)?
Wallaby Darned at Outback - don't judge!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
Edisto Island Beach, SC - it's not fancy but I love this place.
