The Awkward Anthropologist
My Buddhist friend was stopped by a Christian fellowship and asked if she would consider following the word of Jesus Christ. She replied, “No, thanks, but maybe next time around.”
I don’t think they got the joke but I nearly died laughing.
There are a few brief random notes that I wrote in my little notebook.
Still taking time to process the weekend as a whole, so that post will come at another time.
AFI: During one of their songs Davey the lead singer put the microphone into the crowd, but no one sang back. And I still feel really sad about that.
Kate Nash: was so freaking cute during her performance. She reminded me a lot of Grimes.
Ms Mr: singer Lizzie had lipstick on her teeth which was extremely noticeable when the camera zoomed in on her face! Oh my, I tried to tell her from the back of the crowd, but luckily her musical partner did so and then she was perfect again.
Julian Casablancas: played my favorite Strokes song during his set. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize until halfway through the song due to the shitty bass.
Warpaint: the ladies had hairy armpits too, and I felt connected because of that. I love it when the ladies do that.
Outkast: was cut off a song too short, and Andre 3000’s eyes were watery when he was talking about their performance. I just wanted to take him into my arms and soothe his nostalgia.
Calvin Harris:Florence Welch was at the festival, but he didn’t bring her out for “Sweet Nothing”. He didn’t bring out any guest performers. I was really sad
dream like state for a few days
Fuck, what a good weekend
