Also - It's never in the best interest in the town to do a straight vote-off (unless there's 100% certainty that someone is mafia - which is practically impossible). Who people vote for is the best chance to see patterns of who is working together. That's the purpose behind runoffs - more votes mean more voting patterns. It also gives people more of a chance to speak up and defend themselves.

One of my favorite albums is Deja Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young but I usually pass on Woodstock whenever it comes up. I wouldn't say its horrible by any means, but I don't like it. And videotape by Radiohead, I am not a fan of unless I am very unhappy. The whole B-side of In Rainbows pales in comparison to the front, but this song is definitely my least favorite

Jazmo - That's where I thought you were coming from.
Be careful, as a new player, you should make sure to read through everything before voting. This game is more about an "us vs them" mentality than a "me against the world" mentality. I learned that the hard way my first few games, so trying to save you the headache.
I was in middle school and had previously just listened to pretty generic and inoffensive radio hits... Then this album came into my life and showed me that there was so much more music out there than what my friends and I listened to. Kurt's death also rattled me and in an odd way forced me to get out for live shows to SEE the artists I loved.
Does anyone else remember those BMG CD deals? I signed up for those a few times (somehow?? I was a child) and this was in my first shipment.
This one was also pretty special to me around that same time. I remember feeling kind of sneaky buying it at the store, because of the parental advisory. Seeing Dre and Snoop at Coachella was a dream come true for the middle schooler in me, for sure.

I have every state, district, date, country and style imaginable in coin guitar picks. Whatever you can dream up, I probably already have one waiting for you. You should see the Jamaican coin picks - awesome.

The What stage to me is great from so many spots. I was ten minutes late to Macca and still got a great sight line and plenty of dancing room. As long as you aren't pushing people, you'll be fine. The people who I get pissed at are the hand holding bros who are too drunk to care about others around them.
This isn't directed at anyone in particular, but please don't wear Native American headdresses. Or if you want to, at least do some research on its cultural significance. It's not a fashion accessory.
I take it you're not a redskins fan.
Slightly different issue.
Headdresses in most tribes were earned, and worn as part of ceremonial garb. Wearing one arbitrarily is the equivalent of dressing up in scrubs and blackface, then showing up at a hospital claiming to be a doctor. There's a whole long history of hollywood stereotypes and broken tribal agreements that flares up when a drunk frat bro at Coachella thinks he's cool for going around shirtless wearing an eagle-feather headdress. I have Sioux ancestry, and a small collection of family artifacts, but I'd never wear them to a festival.
To quote a bible, "The water monster is right catman, they are among us." I mean, I know magic is unbelievable, but so is nothingness and clones, and we all know clones and nothingness are everywhere right?
And krissyjo, I was thinking mostly about how not to get myself killed (I assume dead people don't cast votes, right? I didn't read all of the other thread) since I just started playing. Jimmy being voted off would avoid a runoff and keep me in the game. Unless surfbum voted for me too, because that would put jimmy and I at +3, but I wasn't thinking that far ahead when I cast my vote.
Given what I've learned,
jazmo > sleepy > jimmyroo > krissyjo
Because apparently recip votes are a thing and you have no votes, so the less of an impact I make right now the easier it is for me to observe and learn the ropes.

Gotta say I'm happy with the schedule this year. I'm seeing all of my must-sees, and a few others I wasn't expecting. To measure how much of a success, I bolded all of the names that I get to see on this list I made after the lineup came out:
Must See (Cannot miss for anything, and will be extremely bummed if any of these conflict with each other): Kanye West Frank Ocean James Blake Neutral Milk Hotel Jack White Elton John (only by default)
Definitely Maybe (I have every intention of watching these, but I am mentally-prepared to miss them in a heart-breaking conflict): Lionel Richie Vampire Weekend The Avett Brothers* Skrillex Arctic Monkeys Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Kaskade Damon Albarn Disclosure* Ms. Lauryn Hill* Umphrey's McGee Tedeschi Trucks Band* The Naked and Famous Ice Cube Cut Copy Janelle Monae Chromeo Chvrches John Butler Trio Rudimental Darkside
Quite Possibly (Not planning on attending, but would be happy if the schedule allows me to see them): Phoenix The Flaming Lips Wiz Khalifa* Yonder Mountain String Band City and Colour Meshuggah Danny Brown Break Science Bluegrass Situation* Andrew Bird* Drive-By Truckers*
Unlikely (Never say never, but I can't see any scenario where I watch their set. Note that I have seen or WILL have seen every band in this group): Mastodon* Chance the Rapper Fitz and the Tantrums Grouplove Slightly Stoopid Dr. Dog Cake Blackberry Smoke Cage the Elephant ZZ Ward St. Paul and the Broken Bones Caveman Deafheaven
* = partial set
Like I said, I can't complain. I get to watch all of my must-sees unopposed, 13 out of 21 definitely maybes. Skrillex superjam, Nick Cave, Chromeo, and Chvrches are the main ones I have to miss that I won't have seen by the time Bonnaroo comes around. I'm also bummed I won't be able to watch the all of the LN metal tent. I love metal and love that Roo is giving metal a spotlight. I just like so many of the other acts on though. Turns out I'll see ZZ Ward and Mastodon anyways too! ZZ Ward conflicts with Caveman, both of which I've seen, and the former is better live. So I'll be watching her, unless someone tells me that Cass McCombs is worth researching. And while I was gonna skip Mastodon, I'll probably watch them since I'll be hopping around for Ice Cube and Disclosure anyways.
