    I had an exceptional time in San Francisco this weekend. Treasure Island was definitely a blast, which I wasn't really expecting, because I wouldn't have gone had some other friends of mine been planning the trip already. But it was just as fun as OSL was for me, albeit a pretty different event (much smaller). Grizzly Bear made the whole trip worth it, they were even better than when I saw them earlier this year at Bonnaroo, even though they had half the timeslot. It's a shame I still haven't experienced them at their own solo gig. Yo La Tengo was my other biggest surprise, I was excited to see them but I really wasn't expecting their set to be so much fun.

    Didn't meet or see any board members though! Pretty sure I saw the Fro once from far away. But that's it. Everyone was hiding.

    Nah, I wasn't in the back. I was standing next to the railing along the soundboard. My girl doesn't like getting up too close because 9 times out of 10 she can't see, so we look for a good spot where there is quality sound but still a nice view of the stage. About 35-40min into the set I could see people streaming out along the side of the crowd. You're a little too funny with your whole attitude towards my opinion of the moment. I don't even try to argue with you guys who have several thousand posts on this board because it is clear to me that no matter what I say you're experiences and opinions are always better. I watched the same set as you, with my eyes on the stage (I also have peripheral vision which allows me to spot movement in the corner of my eye), and I wasn't feeling the set like you were. Who gives a f*ck?

    Dude. I'm just a guy trying to understand your perspective. That is all. You'd think that would be something you would appreciate, given that it's a conversation and all. The very fact that you weren't feeling the set I did is why I'm asking you these questions. Don't worry about it.

    Did you see anyone wearing a red Rage Against the Machine Coachella shirt? If so, you probably saw me.

    We were going in opposite directions. I'm pretty dark, so that may explain how you missed me.

    On the subject of Amoeba - I bought me some Talking Heads Naked and the movie Freaks
