Like it says, what will you always remember about Broo 2010? Can be a set or just something random that happened. Mine is for sure the party at the camp site (Camp Jaws aka Puddle of Mud)while Deadmau5 was tearing it up. We threw about 1,000 glow sticks up in the air and literally 100 people came out of the wood work and started dancing around our camp. It was glorious.

OK. A few minutes before Deadmau5 I'm hanging by the soundboard with 300,000 other people--basically pressed chest to back and side to side, packed in there like molecules--when these three gigundous guys come crashing into me from the right. They knock me into the people on my left, who in turn go flying into the people on their left, and so on and so forth like dominos all the way across the tent.
The biggest of the three guys grabs me. I get ready for whatever. Then he yells, "DUDE, I'M SO SORRY, BUT LOOK!" And he points right next to us where a lone wook is doubled over barfing his nards into the sand.
The wook barfs and barfs and barfs and barfs. Like, meals he ate in kindergarten. By now the crowd around him has backed off for five feet in every direction, and we're all watching in horror. It's an atrocious thing for people to see at two forty-five in the morning with a headful of mood expanders. Never mind that it's splashing on us.
People start shouting: "GET HIM OUT!" But who's brave enough to lead a nard-barfing wook through a crowd of people? It's bad enough that this is happening in one place, right in front of us...if anyone's fool enough to actually take the guy by the hand and lead him out, he's going to be spattering people with eeew all the way across Centeroo. Not a good thing.
Finally the technicolor yawn gives way to dry heaves. The poor guy's shaking, alone at the center of a ten-foot circle of horrified onlookers. One of his friends elbows through the crowd, grabs him by his arm, and takes him away. Gone, just like that.
300,000 sweaty claustrophobic people look at this ten-foot circle of empty space with the mess at its center. Nobody steps forward.
"Kick sand over it!" somebody suggests. Suddenly people are burying the mess under a pitcher's mound worth. And within three minutes Deadmau5 comes on and people are dancing on that spot as if nothing had ever happened.

Sunday night we are sitting at our camp infront of the porta johns/pod 3 and we hear "HOWEVER TOOK A shiz IN THE URINAL YOU ARE A SICK MOTHERQuackER" everyone laughed and gaged a little. Monday morning we are wake & baking and hear a girl say "OH MY GOD THERE'S shiz IN THE URINAL!!!" aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - it was so gross but everytime an unsuspecting festival goer commented we laughed.

Right before Deadmau5 I was at the port-a-jon line when I saw some dude burst out of the door, with his pants around his ankles, and nothing else on except a really goofy grin. He then waddle runs across the crowd. Moments later someone else bursts out of another port-a-jon (this time with pants on) looking not as happy, and starts chasing him. They disappear into the crowd before I can see what came of this.

Saturday morning, about 6a.m., I'm walking up to port-a-johns @ pod 7 when a man busts out the door gagging w/ pooh all over his right arm... His wife yells, "what happened?" the guy(still gagging) says," I dropped my phone in the hole & had to dig it out"...... That phone would've stayed in that pile of Leno if it had been mine!!
i was headed in eastbound I-24, was sent to 127 and was coming back up the back road. there was house on the way that had a dude and his old school house speakers set up in the front yard. He was blasting metal at all the cars...the speakers were badly blown, he was sunburnt to a crisp, and was playing the air guitar mixed in with some awesome hand gestures. he then threated to kick anyone's ass who got out of their car...he was hammered and it was awesome! if my camera wasn't buried i would have videotaped it! it was a good sign of things to come...so naturally i got out of my car, had a beer, and just drank in the spectacle.
A Thieve's Parade 2/24 Conspirator 2/26 Kevin Smith 3/11 Keller 3/17 Papadosio 3/18 JJ Grey 3/25 Bela Fleck/Edgar Meyer 3/26 Toubab Krewe 3/27 O'Death 4/11 Budos Band 4/22 EOTO 4/28 Summer Camp 5/6-29 All Good
He was rocking out...air guitar...the whole nine yards. He had a single speaker in front and we all just stared. It was hilarious and bizarre. I will be looking for him next year for sure, Also about that time a cow up the road escaped the fence and was walking around the cars until they came to get him. The weirdest mile waiting in line ever.

I lost it when my buddy started chasing his vodka shots with baked beans. We were daring anyone who walked by to do it... and after awhile he took another shot with some beans actually in the shot. Needless to say he wasn't up for drinking the next day, and I'll never look at baked beans the same way again.

I'll also never forget the mass exodus of the crowd filtering out after dave. This is my third roo but the first time I've stuck around for the sunday night headliner and i thought it was CRAP they wouldn't let us back in centeroo and turned off the ferris wheel! They would have got another 30 of my dollars, that's for sure.
Anyway everyone was randomly yelling bonnaroo and butt scratcher and you can see the look of disappointment on everyone's face that this was the last time we'd be passing under the arch again until 2011 : (
I would also have to say one of the best moments for me was our Pants off Dance off party at 5am a little outside of the Lunar Stage. My sister and I met this guy with a bullhorn at LCD and we were provoking him to yell stuff at random people in centeroo. We interviewed people at the portas with it asking "Poop or Pee!" Then we decided at the Lunar Stage to yell through it Pants off Dance off over and over until we had about 15 plus dancing in a circle in their underwear while the sun came up. It was seriously ridiculous
I would say it was when I left The Black Keys w/my friends who wanted to see the Flaming Lips and being astounded at the party over at Bassnectar. I had never even heard of bassnectar before and I was blown away at the sight. The whole time I'm walking over to the Flaming Lips I'm thinking I just NEED to be at bassnectar. So I left them about 3 songs in and had the time of my life dancing like a villain until the set ended. The crowd was nuts and I loved it.
There were quite a few memorable moments for me this year:
I'll start with the bad and end with the good. This was the first year I’ve ever heard someone just totally snap (in anger). We awoke Friday morning to this girl screaming and crying, apparently to her boyfriend: “Quack MY PARENTS! YOU CAN TAKE THE BABY! YOUR CHILD... [incoherent crying and screaming]... Quack MY PARENTS!!” She then proceeded to throw off her bikini top and run through the camp crying hysterically, antagonized that everyone around was laughing at her.
Another down side was that this was the first year I’ve ever encountered any unwanted sexual advances. Apparently there was this guy standing at a street intersection near his tent just trying to lead girls back to camp to get laid as many times as possible. He acted really genuinely friendly at first, but when I went with him back to his tent to see about some Molly that he promised for free, he just pulls out his weenie and tells me to use my tongue ring on him. Shocked, I laughed, asked him how many girls that has actually worked on, and we parted ways. A guy at a nearby tent asked me about him, he had been bringing girls back and forth all day
There was of course plenty of good memories as well. I CROWD SURFED for the first time in my life, and participated in the happiest mosh pit of my life at the Melvins show. It was amazing!!! My camp helped me DIY a quick grunge outfit just for the occasion: they helped me cut up a flannel shirt that I duct taped and wore alone with some combat Doc-Marten-esque boots that totally kicked ass.
I had never heard of DeadMau5 before this year, but the raves Saturday night were mind-blowing! He really did tear it up, and the DJ that kept playing after the Mau5 party ended was awesome all the way into the sunrise. I came across a pirate that directed me in the direction of this awesome dude from New York who was just giving out "candy" for free! He gave me 4 all together... definitely helped keep me up for the trip home on Sunday. He was one of the most interesting people I've ever met... like listening to some Waking Life-type philosophy.
All in all, Bonnaroo 2010 was my third year in a row, and probably my most memorable (besides maybe my first in '08). ^_^

Was this near Pod 9? There were two guys over by the porto's one night saying they'd give me free molly to see my boobs. I declined.
My best memory was the pit at Dropkick's. Me and my friend lost our group so we diced quack it, let's go in. I lost my shoes, sunglasses and bandana in the depths, and may have bruised my foot. Totally completely worth it! I like to think I did Boston proud
I was trying to fall asleep at my campsite under our canopy at like 8am, and I was almost there and a random guy passes by and asks if he can sit down and chill out for a few minutes. Of course, I say yes, and shut my eyes and try to fall back asleep. I didn't really have anything out in the open that was worthy of being stolen, so I didn't care. About 2 or 3 minutes later, on the verge of falling asleep, all of the sudden, all I hear is a big SNORT sound. I open my eyes a little bit and the dude is doing blow off my cooler.
I'll always remember hearing Jay-Z perform "Forever Young" while I'm puking my guts out near the exit for the What Stage. Mushrooms, vodka and oreos don't mix well

1. Deadmau5 was AMAZING had a blast at that show
2. There was a dude in front of me at LCD who was super pumped, he turned around and screamed to me "THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST SHOW OF YOUR LIFE", fist bumped me, and then hardcore made out with his girlfriend.
3. Sending off rockets balloon's at my campsite never got old and I laughed hysterically each time.
