rain! thunder! lightning!
why did i just buy some sandals???? i don't own a coat.
maybe a tramp stole it
you're not camping. wuss.
and i had all my outfits planned and now I HAVE TO CHANGE THEM.
i wish more people did
I go by the weather the day before/the morning
looks like i'll need to wear my rubbish wellies that destroy my socks!
if i ignore the bad weather it will actually be good weather?! i've lost my wellies. rubbish. cheap welly options anyone?!
IN THE SALE.
is there a matalan in manchester? may go with primark. ugh, post-work primark crowd *shudder*
and i hate all primarks, so, youknow, that's pretty bad.
i dunno if there's a matalan.
it's not that bad! just very very busy. 99% of the time. sometimes it's a necessity though.
ooh, and does anyone know where i can get a cheap blow up mattress? (yes, i am a wuss who does not much like sleeping on the ground)
comfort ahoy! sheesh that was bad.
hence the 'ahoy!'. oh dear i have silly mental images of floating around the campsite now...
also still trying to convince someone to drive there with me and share petrol. that hasn't gone so well. i'm not really crazy.
and sail there on your mattress.
it's pretty cheap in there
wellies always looked overpriced. will check it out though. why exactly do i always leave this til just before a festival?
Rail thunder and lightning myself
because i wanted to moan about the weather. i've already moaned to everyone at work about it.
my only boot options are to borrow bloody LEOPARD PRINT wellies off a friend. it's not a good option.
i dont really 'do' practical.
also, i live in manchester. i'm used to rain. i spend most of my life walking around in impractical shoes that let water in. FUCK YOU WELLIES.
canvas pumps for all weather. at least they dry quick. and they're cheap. and come in so many colours...i'll be quiet now...
i just decided i'm going to take back my sandals and get some new brogues. FUCK YEAH. EAT THAT RAIN, YOU BASTARD.
because i'm literally sitting here going omg i am NOT wearing wellies.
it's all i aim for
it's probably going to be too hot to wear a coat. it's going to be warm and wet. THIS IS THE WORST WEATHER EVER. i'm in a terrible mood.
i hadn't even thought about that. i am just going to be soaked and a mess, if i accept that now then the weekend will be easier.
go team us.
that brings sunshine and joy into the lives of people everywhere?
that's why you keep hounding me, right?
don't be mean to yourself, you're not a dog xx
'THAT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE SENSE' because i don't know if it does or not because i'm not clever enough to tell.
it's still a fucker. In the cause of indiepop or not, I don't want to die struck by lightning in the ground of a railway museum.
you will not need wellies. Trust me.
I'm not sure how safe the new outdoor stage or the food and acoustic marquees will be, mind.
I'm going to SGP rather than Indie Tracks but still, ruddy annoying...
you all stink
you enormous puff.
i'll just sit in at home and cry for a bit. i imagine it'll be somewhat like the festival in a way.
i'll be buying indiepop CDRs from canada while i'm doing it.
what are the rules about taking drinks and food onto the festival site? i want to make stupid vegan packed lunches for my friends.
you can't take alcohol onto the festival site. can't remember about food.
"Anybody is free to perform in the acoustic area. Bring along an instrument and sing a few songs!"
OMG. WHO WANTS TO SING SOME SONGS WITH ME??
learn the words to the chorus on the second song on here!!??
ribena, kia-ora and um bongo.
Apparently there'll be a donut van.
im eating donuts for lunch and dinner
with a better name for this festival
i think that would have been better
C86, steam trains and porn.
if it rains. They've got EAGLES on. Laura, you can bring in food but not alcohol, and you can bring sealed soft drinks.
oh wait, i'm not going at all :'(
it'll be like drownedintwee!
My wellies are at my parents' house, about 100 miles away. Oh well.
i have tickets and everything. but camping sold out and we don't really have enough money to pay our way for the weekend anyway :'(
i was supposed to be playing in the middle ones' band as well. EVERYONE GO AND SEE THE MIDDLE ONES!
for £10 a night, apparently.
find out about this ^ and come. COME COME COME. it'll be at least 7 x better if you're there.
i dunno. also, we'd have to leave on sunday afternoon because i have work on monday at 8am!
/call in sick
the me being really poor thing :D
if someone can find info about this campsite next to butterly station, that'd be useful. google isn't helping at all.
we definitely can't go and it'd be silly to even attempt to.
but ten quid a night camping...hmmm
it's not just the camping, it's food and train fares and we'd need to buy a tent too. it'd probably cost £100 for both of us which is £100 we don't really have!
i hadn't quite realised that the train fares were going to double the cost.
i hadn't thought it thought.
Do you drive? if so, sleep in the car maybe?
that's pretty indie
real answer: a bunch of us are camping together i think. gimme a call?
I'm going down on the Saturday morning so will deffo call.
i don't want to miss out, thanks.
I'm not going. There'll be no sex. Or drinking, or any kind of fun or debauchery at all.
those are qualities i usually bring too so yeah they are gonna be SO BORED.
i just don't think it will be the same, never mind.
I take the offer back.
and laugh at my The Replacements joke please.
Sex and fun it is (y).
I'm posting in a thread about a festival I'm not going to. New low.
or the right kind of fun. I'm not sure which.
And I don't mean have sex by that statement. I mean nearly end the universe by bringing too much party.
that's far away.
by that. I talk in academic years.
that's not far. yeah, see you in september philly!!!!!!!!!!
and since I last saw you. The nostalgia is overwhelming.
it must have been hard. when i think of you i think of standing in that weird inside secret bar thing at leeds and talking about refused. BASICALLY because that's the only time i spoke to you. AHHHHH FOND MEMORIES.
that might be how he copes
to the wrist that represents my tortured mind.
And we danced like idiots to !!!
And we got pretty stoned
Still 'Good Times'
so far i just havent rly eaten anything so its going well.
I had an interview with PETA today. LOL.
I also have vegan salad cream AND mayonnaise.
like, cows milk is a distant memory and stuff. but today (the start of my summer holiday) was meant to be proper vegan times. eep. and i was meant to be writing a zine about it. LOL. so far no good.
I'm writing two more 'zines.
I need you to write for one of them. k?
I was gonna take a load of my old 'zine to Indie Tracks but then forgot.
i made A COMIC for indietracks. i am such a loser.
Now I really wish I'd made the effort.
I took loads to ATP and ended up taking them all home again. Sad.
The front cover is designed by Times New Viking!
It has sheet music in it written by Owen Pallett!
I so should have made more :(
oh shit, i just realised, yr KIND OF in my comic. FREE COPY FOR YOU.
like at the end there is a band playing in the background, and cos it's ABOUT GOING TO INDIETRACKS, you can guess what band it is. literally stick people. lol. it's not very good. i made it to cheer vicki up.
I hope the stick people aren't talking and are showing some fucking respect for the entertainment.
I JUST READ THIS ENTIRE THREAD AND I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO THIS FESTIVAL
hardcore vegans just eat air.
at least you remember me nicer than i actually am
wtf was it about POPPERS that weekend???? were we SIXTEEN???? LOL
i am drunk. sorry.
I blame me going to Canal Street and buying some.
DANIEL you know i can't take yr mocking.
I'm not camping at all, and in fact have work at 7.30am on Monday. Luckily I live an hour away and, as much as it threatens to ruin the convivial atmosphere, can spend the night in my own bed. No, you can't come. I'll be there from some time around half 12 Saturday, I think.
in a long time. lots of good people are going to indietracks. YES. i am excited for it.
