Okaaay lets see. Started out with an insane 5 1/2 hour long drive. Could barely see the road, it was fuggggin pouring llama balls. Kinda felt like i was goin through some challenge from the gods that i had to pass in order to make it to the show. Got reaaaallllly baked on the drive. Had this idea in my head that, what if im not even driving..and that the world is jus spinning and im actually staying in one spot....and then i couldnt find my legs for like 6 seconds which is a problem when tryin to control a motor vehicle. Ended up missin one of my exits and went lik 40 min outa the way, but ended up seeing some mellow scenery.
And then DUM DUDU DUMMMMMMMM the skys cleared as soon as i got to shoreline. It was preetttty trippy. hehe. The platypus convention was a failure. lol. Only saw iamthedoor, whos kinda douchey. lol. =-) Spent a couple hrs on the lot,picked up some blotter art from the bus, & then the masses proceeded to migrate down to the amphitheatre, and wait in massive lines, which wasnt all that bad considering the amounts of trees bein burned.=-) Patdown was a non-patdown. She said she liked my green chucks. ANnnnnnd up to the lawn, bout 5 rows of people back so id have enough room to dance n toke. The music began n the electricity started to build, and build and build. And it twas magnificent =-) I found myself dancing more and more erratically as the show went on. Laughed as many drunkards fell over people and down the hill. hehe. Great setlist. Great energy. Great sound. INTERMISSION, proceeded by much more burning of trees. SORRY TREEHUGGERS. =-) Loved shakedown street. Twas the cats pajamas. Left a couple minutes early as to exit from the lot easily and get to the pop quiz.
Now, Got to the popquiz, hung out in the car for a minute, gathered my thoughts...and walked in and my ears almost instantly burst. Not like a good burst, but like a im trapped in a small room with barney blaring on a loudspeaker on a loop. Iono what that alleged dj was thinking. Had to suffer through an hour or more of that nonsense, mainly helped by the furthur burning of trees in the back. Which they said was cool. On the actual site for the space 550 popquiz it said 420 friendly then halfway thru the test this douchey security guard came by and said to go in the bathroom n smoke, which was definitely fuckin lame considering it smells like shit & piss and there was a hefty pile of vomit on the ground. ugh. Now lets see, where was i. Got to the place go in, shitty music. Some wall eyecandy visual stuff. Lots of blacklights. People painting. There was literally lik 3 people there when i got there. Place started filliing up, and iono. I got treated by everyone like i was the black plague. I think everyone thought i was a fukn popo or sumtin, which is completely ridiculous. Couldnt get a dose if my life depended on it. One chick said to me"YOUR WEIRDING ME OUT, EVERYONE HERES TRIPPIN AND YOUR STONE COLD SOBER" which was comical. Whatever, left that room. I was roolllin but its not my fault if people are scetchy. Maybe it woulda been better if i had dreads n smelled. Yeah, that woulda helped. pshhhh. wow. Forgot my frackin water in the car which was lik 20 feet away, and the douchey security douchebag wouldnt let me go out n get it. Said that i could get free cups of water from the bar, which turned out to be a lie. Latr this scetchy dude randomly walked up n sat next to me n was all" wanna go smoke a cigarette.." n its like ..umm no, and then hes all "wanna smoke a bowl..."n it like uuuhhhhh no, n he starts walkkn outside,and tried to get me to follow, but its obvious as all hell that hes jus tryin to get me to leave so they wouldnt let me back in. Like i said, iono, people were treatin me weird, like i was some crazy undercover brother. My bad for havin clean clothes and showering. I dont know what i coulda done. Buuuut fuggit. Was happy when the Mermen came on. Relief from previous bullshit. Some taastty tunes, enjoyed it quite a bit. Danced quite a bit. Random dude walks up to me and says hi n then my name to me..and i was all..huh. do i know you, n he didnt say anything jus walked away. Turne out it was a guy from facebook. iono, i woulda started with that if i were him. hehehe. Annnndd more good music. Pretty much the only good thing bout the test were the tunes. Not including the horrible dj of course. Was a pretty lame party imo. Not much of a "test" if ya ask me. So the PopQuiz ended around 6am or so. Music ended, lights popped on, fin. Toked up before i took off, and waaasss outa it to say the least. Halfway back im jus driving, and im in the left lane, and all the sudden im over in the dirt on the right of the highway. And that happened 2 more times before i made the wise decision to pull off n take a nap at a rest stop. Followed by MORE burning of trees. lol. ANND thats it. Done. Fin. OVER. Ive got to do some thinkin bout my plans for the future now. Im debating bout which shows to go to. Might jus be goin to the west coast shows, now that im hearing bout all that. Sooooooooo yup. ENDING POST NOW
Ima be postin some pics in a couple days probly. =-)
