    Default Roskilde Festival

    Anyone that complains about Coachella should be shot in the face. I've been walking around in foot high mud all morning. there were NO camping spots (took three hours to find one, and we're lucky to be in a spot that looks like it won't be flooded). Apparently, this is how it is every year, and 80K people still come every year.

    Music starts today with Bjork, LCD Soundsystem, and Arcade Fire. We'll see how 4 days of this pans out for me. I'm already excited to get back to Copenhagen to clean all my shit.

    although, coachella could learn from the sale of alcohol on site. i figure it's an impossibility with alcohol laws in the states, but it's pretty rad here. and there is a beer program for can returns much like the water bottle one at Coachella.

    also, it is pretty clean... besides all the mud. much rowdier than coachella as well, which is good and bad.

    Are the Beastie Boys playing it? I went to the Hurricane Festival and it was mud like that all over the place. I had no clue what to expect, so I show up in my $200 Air Jordan 4s and they get completely ruined by the mud.

    I will not be watching Beastie Boys I will be watching Boris.

    I will watch Against Me! then I might catch the end of Muse. Not a fan though.

    Day 1 was intense, I'll post reviews and pictures when I can.

    Sounds like those foreign festivals need to invest in some cement--or that squishy stuff they use at fast food restaurant playgrounds--to avoid mud.

    I'm sure you'll have fun.

    $200 for a pair of shoes? Really? No. Really? Really?

    200$ isn't that much for a pair of sneakers to most, especially those sneaker collecting weirdos.

    Old Against Me! = amazing.
    New Against Me! = lame.
