Hmm...Sounds like fun at first look. But wait..no single-day tickets? It looks like an extra $100 for that Thursday night Furthur, so after my " 49'ers discount" I'm paying $350 for 4 days of bands that I guess I kinda like, but basically I'm paying $350 to see Furthur one night. Is it even a regular 2 set show? I've learned to not assume that at festivals unless they advertise it as such...Hmm... This is all making those Sweetwater and Terrapin shows look cheap. Next thought- are they really doing a one-off show? Perhaps they are playing that weekend somewhere else to be announced later? That would make sense. Okay, I really can't afford to spend that kinda money ($350) for one show, especially when I'm probably leaving the next day to catch the next show...This festival is for a good cause- raising money for autism- so if you got it throw it down. I gotta pass, unless they come up with a single-day Thursday ticket. Heck- I could probably even scratch up $100 for that one day ...but $350? And Primus Sucks!



wow I saw it was 300 for the festival but I didn't know they want an extra 100 for thursday (before the 49ers discount)... that's pretty outrageous, especially if it's extra for thursday but then no single day passes for that day...


Well how do you know its not worth it until you go to the festival!!!!!!

That quip was for Burt.... Couldnt resist buddy, the door was open for me.

you don't know if it's worth it. you have not been to this festival. no one has.

Exactly.



Or as the following alludes.


JERRY: Hey, what were you doing with that bus yesterday?

KRAMER: Here you go, here you go, check it out.

JERRY: "The Real Peterman Reality Bus Tour". I'm confused.

KRAMER: Peterman's book is big business. People want to know the stories behind the stories.

JERRY: Nobody wants to go on a three hour bus tour of a totally unknown person's life.

KRAMER: I'm only charging $37.50, plus you get a pizza bagel and desert.

GEORGE: What's desert?

KRAMER: Bite-size Three Musketeers. Just like the real Peterman eats.

GEORGE: He eats those?

KRAMER: No. I eat those. I'm the real Peterman.

GEORGE: I think I understand this. Jay Peterman is real. His biography is not. Now, you Kramer are real.

KRAMER: Talk to me.

GEORGE: But your life is Peterman's. Now the bus tour, which is real, takes to places that, while they are real, they are not real in sense that they did not *really* happen to the *real* Peterman which is you.

KRAMER: Understand?

JERRY: Yeah. $37.50 for a Three Musketeers. (replace with 300 bucks to see Furthur one show sipping wine with some trust fund kids named Spencer or Linus)

I think the accepted usage is now "people with autism". I guess it isn't okay to use as a direct adjective anymore. It's going through a language process like retard/retarded once did. I just learned this myself two weeks ago when I was reading a letter aloud from a parent with a child with autism. I was amongst a few folk who work with people with disabilities, and they were quick to straighten out the language. And before anyone assumes the wrong, I'm not complaining or passive-aggressively crapping on being corrected. I'm a big fan of language, and I appreciate how it changes. I'm not someone who reacts with "Oh, great. Another word I can't use." Quite the contrary. I invite such correction. It takes me no effort to modify "autistic child" to "child with autism". And in this case, if you look at it for a moment, it makes sense.

Xeno, have you studied Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, and I suppose I ought include Parmenides? I suspect you have, as your posts indicate a life well examined. If not, they will probably appeal to your linguistic phenomenological sensibilities.

Academically, I'm a linguistics ignoramus. It's a recent fascination and appreciation. The older I get, the more value it displays. I'm only very lightly familiar with Russell and Wittgenstein. I don't believe I've even seen the name Frege. As for the Greek, I'm ashamed to admit that ancient philosophy is a real Achilles' Heel. It isn't that I haven't tried, but being insanely poor with name retention, I've found my bouts with the Greeks to be futile. And geez, even understanding their very different word definitions has the potential for one page to turn into an hour affair as I stressfully look up the proper usage. The Greeks flush out my shortcomings like no other period.

Ha ha amen to that Coachella is overrated beyond words but at least it keeps the hipsters outta my way for a weekend

I think this Napa thing looks like a great line up but I get the feeling that they're catering to a 'napa' type crowd more than anything, not too bummed to miss it although I would love to see Furthur, Blk Keys, Primus (who suck), bad religion, and ALO at the same show

The great Muhammaden philosopher Avicenna had to read Aristotle's metaphysics 40 times before he grasped it. So yes, reading and more importantly comprehending ancient philosophy can present a daunting task. Russell's History of Western Philisophy provides a good starting point if you are interested.
