I should not have bumped this. It just makes all that shite out there that much worse.

I am also not going. 2001 - 2012 is a good run.
Flying from across the country makes it a bigger time commitment, more expensive and more exhausting. We have tickets for one of the Nick Cave shows and I hope any other amazing artists that are on the lineup - Blur?, the Stone Roses? - similarly play a local show.
Some thought will be given to Governor's Ball as it is in NYC. And I will certainly consider ATP if they have another festival in the area.
Other than that such resources will most likely go towards Costa Rica for a 1-year (or so) anniversary and other non-music related trips.
The real question is, who is planning on not going anyway, but wants to wait until the lineup comes out so they can blame it on that?
Bryan, have you looked at applying to become a Supreme Court justice? You'd have to live in DC, and they have a bizarro dress code, and some of your coworkers would be real assholes, but it might be worthwhile til you can find something you really like.
Not seeing Brandon at the soundboard is going to suck. And I got to meet Courtney ever so briefly last year...never to be seen again. And John moved to NY for a lady and never came back! You all make me sad.
Kinda figured, but wanted to clarify she wasn't hating it because she was gonna be hanging out here.
and still have yet to meet the elusive courtney.
obviously i am out again this year because i can't take time off work from all the medical leave. plus the crowd has changed over the years and i think 2004-2011 (sans 2007 and most of 2008) was a good run as well.
People having a conversation about how awesome Radiohead is while ignoring the fact that Radiohead is performing in front of them. Yeah. That and people shoving their way to the front.
