No need to apologize to me, Bevin… they aren’t blocking my view, and they really are there as much for your pleasure as their own! Anyway I love you too much to even think that you should have to give up watching the twirly girls. I just said “look fast” because if they try to spend too much time twirling in that path, they are asked to go back to the side.
and…of course I agree completely with the talking thing… bad, very bad.
singing along… uhoh… I think there are a bunch of us who are guilty of singing along once in awhile… "in the midnight, in the moonlight, in the… "
or maybe “Take a little time for sunshine… take a whole lotta time for love…”
Those are almost our anthems, but I will try hard to not to do that, from now on.
Take a little time for HOWLIN AT THE MOON!"
oops… I mean from NOW on… sorry couldn’t help myself.
If you want to stay seated in a lawn chair for 4 days thats yer thing, but with sooo much good music, how can you NOT move.
Way too sedentary fer me, and sounds like you folks need to be at a concert not a FESSSSSSSSTIIIIIIIIIIVAAAAAAL!!!
FESTIVAL= MERRYMAKING :flower Look it up folks, no where in the dictionary does it say, dormant in a lawn chair for 4 days. :flower
Think of this way, music is moving in a well, kinda spiritual way and when people break out in dance and song it’s a sign of joy. And that is beautiful, to me anyway.
People that raise their arms and reach for the sky and grownups with squirt guns are my favorite :festivarian :sunshine :horsey :dog
Please don’t disrespect your Festi neighbors, but feel free to let your freak flag fly… :cheers :flower
I can’t believe someone bashed me over 40 points for this topic… Did I say something wrong or did someone misunderstand? My only complaint was the talking… I am good with dancing…I am good with the standing later… oh oh… did I get in trouble for admitting that I have been guility of singing along? Come on, I said I woudn’t do it again!!!
wait… it’s because I am old???
ah… okay. :thumbsup
and I am NOT dormant in my chair for 4 days… I am rarely in the vicinity of my chair!
I lost over 70 points too and yes I finnally smithed people who I THOUGHT did the same to me, after all it’s only a number :lol(not 40 point however)and I guess this is how you show dissaproval of comments " No talking, singing, dancing or clapping "is unreasonable for a 4 day period on the tarp.
No need to wonder, I smithed a few… Do unto others as they do unto you, so yeah, I"m tired of being Mr. nice guy :lolHere is some love back cause I’m really a lover and NOT a fighter. But, what about me :huh
That’s OK I know I’m loved :festivarian
Thank you for understanding. I’m not one of those tapers that goes around shooshing everyone at the slightest hint of conversation, but nothing kills a recording better than two people having a full on conversation over the music. I record the shows for me and for you. that conversation about your out of body experience over passing Tim O in the airport could take place anywhere else in the 36 acres of town park.
The dancing guy is Pat, he owns an organic market in Ridgway. A front of the line member…
Okay, here’s the plan. Whenever you see Pat, say “Howdy Pat” or Hi or whatever but include his name. Walk up to Pat and shake his hand. I love it. All these random strangers soon-to-be friends that know his name, I love it. Last person to say Hi to Pat is a rotten egg.
I love that line, Miki, about how we’re all experiencing the same thing but in different ways.
We’re all guilty of getting all excited now and then! I just know that now, in a couple weeks, you’ll all notice me standing down front, singing and dancing and clapping along. :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol
I am reading an interesting book by Dean Koontz (Life Expectancy) and there is this one paragraph that sums it up pretty good.
We have instinct but are not ruled by it. We feel the pull of the mindless herd, the allure of the pack, but we resist the extreme effects of this influence-and when we do not, we drag our societies down into the bloody wreckage of failed utarpias.
Ok I changed that last word for us. :lol Speaks to my heart. Let your freak flags fly festivarians!
We should start a smite free society. We could call it Utarpia. I can honestly say I have never smited anyone on this forum and usually forget to even look at that little number until someone brings it up. (Insert Heavy Breathing here) Ignore the number and you shall grow young Luke Skywalker.
One thing is for sure, freedom of expression is flying freak flags frequently — while we are frolicking.
