Samesies. Took an extra few minutes break there to listen to a new Battles song just added to Spotify.

Not going anymore, think I've just had enough of festivals after about 10 years of them!
Nothing will match the 2nd EP for me which was my first and I don't get excited anymore about it so sold my early bird ticket but anyone who is going, ENJOY because it is a great weekend, especially if you're new to it!!! :)

They had that fuckwit Al Porter on for a load of it as well. I recorded it so I could watch it when I came back from holidays and he nearly ruined it.

He makes my fucking skin crawl that guy.

People like him get those jobs because they want them more than the other guy. They show up to absolutely everything, no gig is too small, no fee is too small; they do a bit of social climbing, they schmooze every producer and PR they can get beside, they whore themselves, they work their holes off and they get the gigs.

It's a commendable ethic, but it doesn't make them any less cunts though. Another way of putting it is they would stab their grandmother if it meant they could be on the cover of Heat magazine.

See I don't care about him whoring himself out, if he gets the job fair play to him, I care more about the fact that as a comedian he's atrocious and most of what I've seen of him relies on him camping it up and relying on gay jokes. You can make that work to an extent if you've got the charm of the likes of Gaham Norton to back it up but not if the rest of your material is piss poor.

Yeah that too. He's like a cross between Marty Whelan and Pee Wee Herman, with the charisma of neither.

A lot of work to do and feeling a bit unwell but I'm starting to get excited still. Loads to look forward to, My Morning Jacket, Underworld, Ho99o9, Battles, Mos Def, Tame Impala, FKA Twigs and obviously Blur. Hope they weather stays decent.

This this this.

Hate the cunt. The opposite of funny is not unfunny, it is a walking, talking, gesticulating cunt.

Been a while but since Ive been on here, looking forward to going down again. Been every year since camping started which is probably 12 years now.

My friends are doing the posh camping route because they are wusses but I think its massively overpriced so I'm slumming it with the masses as usual.

Going to head nice and early, got down latish last year and it was a nightmare trying to find space.
