ROCK OUT WITH YOUR COCK OUT!

HFS'tival 2005 was a fucking blast. Intense heat. Pouring rain. Lightning. Sun Burns. Wow.

I got to see the following bands on the main stage: They Might be Giants, Interpol, New York Dolls (who's lead looks like Mick Jagger's father on crack), Social Distortion, Good Charlotte, BILLY IDOL, Coldplay, and Foo Fighters! I was on the field during They Might Be Giants and Billy Idol. I also caught Sum 41 and Pepper on the street stage and Victory Twin on the locals only stage.

It was fucking great. Before Victory Twin hit the local stage, Ladainian Tomlinson went on stage to make the crowd cheer for the Ravens, you heard a little bit of "Ravens rock!", but you could also hear "Redskins rock!" or "Ravens suck!", it was hilarious. Fucking purple birds.

Another funny thing about yesterday was that I was wearing a Back to the Future t-shirt (stick with me here)... now this shirt is not even the remote bit new, and nowhere near my best shirt, yet I had three people tell me they loved the shirt. Apparently my backup shirts are great too. Pad that ego.

I also ran into a dude I just met on MySpace, we went to all the same schools, only he went 10 years earlier. He was like, "Hey, you on MySpace? You who I messaged the other day?" And I'm like, "Yeah I think so, who are you?" And he added, "the undercover pimp", his name on MySpace. And that was that. I walked on.

Then when I was in the bleachers, I was looking around and who do I see not ten feet in front of me? Jackson (the redheaded one) from Grand Buffet, who who I saw awhile back at the Ottobar.

I'm so fucking burnt now, but it was worth it. I had no clue how I would take being in a stadium for 13 hours, well being around the stadium, and sometimes in it, but it was great. Billy Idol is fucking amazing. He's in such good shape for a 60 year old man too, lol. All the bands I named were fucking amazing.

  1. Dammit! My backup shirts consist of the Taco Bell Chihuahua dog and a Sixth Sense spoofing "I See Dumb People" shirt. Neither of which is exactly "cool" pop culture. Dammit all! Just dammit all!

    Actually, I do have a "I'm just smiling because they haven't found the bodies yet" shirt. Then 9/11 happened...
