Nills Lagerbaak
20-04-2005, 17:25:07
Anyone else? I am going....first time for me!

Debaser

No, sadly I'm not.

Who are you going with?

Kitsuki
20-04-2005, 19:40:58
I am... :D

It's ace Nills - went last year!

Nills Lagerbaak
20-04-2005, 22:41:51
Aha, we'll have to have a CG meet!



Debbs - I'm going with Amy.

Nor did I! I don't wanna know how she "secured" those tckets. But seriousy kitsuki, we should meet up there.

I'm actually thinking of returning the ticket now I'm afraid... Person I was going with split up with me a while back, and don't have anyone to go with... The whole thing would remind me of her a tad too much anyhow, and it clashes with my first job, so....

Sorry...! :)

Good to see the Killers have shown humility in turning down the headline slot vacated by the stricken Minogue. Well, humility or the fact they realised it would be quite farcical to headline after only one MOR (generous?) album.

They should get Danni to headline

King_Ghidra
02-06-2005, 13:28:32
she does give good headline, i hear

:lol: Like it

Nills Lagerbaak
22-06-2005, 09:38:34
I'm so excited! Woohoo. Any last minute pieces of advice from Glasto veterans?

Take toilet roll, baby wipes, sunscreen, a hat, etc. You know the routine.

Make sure you have something between your groundsheet and your sleeping bag, it gets fucking freezing at night, a million times worse than Reading.

Nills Lagerbaak
22-06-2005, 10:15:43
Shit. Sleeping bag?!

I really need to get into town this lunchtime or I'm fooked.

Funko

Panick over I bought myself a "mummy" bag for 10 pounds. Reduced from 20. Sweet.

The best bit is that if I die in my sleep (quite possible), I will be ready for my sarcophagus / to be displayed in a museum.

Funko
22-06-2005, 15:27:15
Thank god, I can rest easy now.

Funko
22-06-2005, 15:27:37
And resist making a lame Daddy joke.

Nills Lagerbaak
22-06-2005, 15:31:16
The only reason you "resisted" is because you can't think of (even a lame) one

Funko
22-06-2005, 15:31:47
Why would you try and make me post some horrendous jokes?

novacane

Funny story (if you're not there)

Apparantly torrential rain and thunder storms have already hit the site. The river has burst its banks and Radio 1 have lost all power to broadcast from there (for the time being).

Nills is probably sitting cross-legged in a stream, tripping his nuts off on shrooms right now.

Miles from home. Your clothes for the next 3 days are all drenched. And Coldplay are headlining. No thanks.

Wow, the picture of the ferry being struck is breath taking.

King_Ghidra
24-06-2005, 14:54:51
is it actually being struck or is it jsut in front of the strike?

Yeah, that's strange. It was a picture of a flooded row of shops, one of which had a sign reading "Delicious Glastonbury Springwater" or something similar.

The water is fucking deep...

Think of all those drug stashes, personal radios, clothes and fags all floating away.

The firewood would be ruined.

Look at this trooper.

Retrieving his car keys and bank cards apparantly. And I thought Glastonbury was all about shedding materialistic possessions :p

why i dont do festivals :) Never go anywhere they won't check your coat, thats my rule of thumb.

I hope Nills has gills :nervous:

Oh stop your fussing! I admit I thought being camped at the top of a hill was too far away.

I didn't think that the next day when I went into town *snigger*

There was rivers of fast flowing mud up to within a centimer of the top of my wellies.
Those pictures were from a field below the general level of the site and there must have been more than 200 tents totally submerged (big tents too). They were searching for bodies, suspecting some shroomed out hippy slept through the storm!

It was fooking amazing though.....Eavis declared it was the best one ever this morning (probably cos I was there :)

You forgot this -----> )

If you forget to close your brackets then everything you write from now on will be included in them, and I know that's not what you want.

Good to hear you didn't drown. Who did you see there?

Nills Lagerbaak
27-06-2005, 10:32:58
) Hmm, I notice a "last edited..." at the bottom of your post. Not so perfect either then! (:))

I can't believe how good the whole thing was. I saw roots manuva (brilliant)
Fat Boy Slim - very funny. He handed out a whole load of glasses that turned any light source into a smilley fat boy face.
Hayseed Dixie Land. Quality covers band in a rodeo stylee (war pigs was particularly good)
Seed were excellent, but I was quite mashed then so my memory is hazy.
Found an intreguing place called the Pussy Palour. They had some deal with the speciality pie shop so we got thie massive sit dowen meal with waitress service, and watched some bizzare cabaret (two West Country Slappers pracing around to Eye of the Tiger)
The green fields were superb, really very civilised.
I am going to go in two years' time without a doubt, now. Also I'll take Monday off so that I can spend the whole Sunday there.

Debaser
27-06-2005, 10:37:23
Did you know that Hayseed Dixie are called that 'cos it sounds like a kind of bluegrass version of AC/DC?

Nills Lagerbaak
27-06-2005, 10:57:49
Yes, I had figured that out! Their version of "for those about to rock" was sublime.

The Killers started off quite well, but quickly degenerated into samey stuff. I actually liked the Bravery.

Didn't really like the Kaiser Chiefs.
The silent rave was one of the shittest/funniest things I ever saw. I walked passed it when they were finishing and they were playing Come on Ilene. Imagine 1000 people with headphones on singing come on ilene really out of time with each other, but thinking they were awesome.

Did you see Sir Bob haranguing the crowd?

Nills Lagerbaak
28-06-2005, 09:58:43
Yes. We all had to hold hands in a massive chain listen to Bob and then shout "Make Poverty History!!". It was nice.

The Norks
28-06-2005, 15:31:55
what do you make of his campaign?

Nills Lagerbaak
28-06-2005, 16:53:27
Hmm, to be honest I know very little about it all. I did watch a fairly interesting fictional drama about what would happen if we stopped giving aid to Africa.

The whole aid thing is foocked up though. Less than half of all pledged aid actually gets through, most of it is designed to keep the borrowing nation dependent on the donating nation for ages (tied to buying goods and services from the donating nation, interest rates that are paid back for generations into the future).

It's pretty sickening to see countries exploiting the poorest people in this way.

The Norks
28-06-2005, 17:41:54
true, I wonder sometimes about his methods though- kind of like being clubbed over the head with his opinion.

Nills Lagerbaak
28-06-2005, 17:44:19
Yeah, I guess the majority of people probably need a bit of clubbing.
