Posted by gregor on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

top of the morning, y’all. man i thought i gave myself a concussion yesterday, or at very least cracked my head open. was getting out of bed and hand slipped and the back of my head hit the window sill with pretty much full force. never had gotten hit in the head like that before. a few baseballs during my playing days, but nothing that sends a shock through my whole body. fun times, peoples, fun times.

i have never heard of green man festival, but as it turns out its held annually in brecon beacon, wales. anyone every been?

    Green Man is great, if overpopulated with irritating middle class London families. I got trashed on gin there in ’07 and fell asleep on my friend’s (now wife) shoulder during J Newsom’s set, waking up near the end to complain that I couldn’t take any more songs about “fucking seashells”. What an asshole I was.

    Not really touched gin since.

      sounds like most festivals, plus just replace middle class families with annoying hipsters. ive been there, the passing out part, that is.
