it was a stroke of brilliance to close out saturday night (the best night of the fest) with lightning bolt, whose sweet sounds were too much for the average yuppie atp-goer. they emptied the place halfway through their set. fantastic all around.

@ 11:05 AM - wouldn't the point of skinny pants be to maximize your penis? I'm gonna go ahead and assume that's what you meant.

Daft Punk played the All Season's Campground a mile away, it was epic, made MBV sound like Wheatus

i think 38 qualifies as middle age, 28 would be more yuppie-ish.

i think 38 is yuppie = graduating high school in the 80's

skinny pants = so tight it MINIMIZES your penis by pushing it between your legs and up into your asshole

sort of like a sports bra makes tits go bye-bye
