    Marshall – I’m not a skinny dude so I always powdered up for years. Wandering the lot for hours in the blazing heat is bad enough, but doi g that with a compromised taint is absolute misery. So i never used the James Bond before but knew many that swore by it. I’m switching over this weekend. Practice run on Sat. I’m also approving your style.

    Ps. I’ve read a few of these posts to my wife almost in tears and she thinks were all bent.

    I don’t mind being called bent.

    @Hal: thanks for looking out on the CCDs. The world cafe live venue is kinda weird/kinda cool. I’ll pencil that in. Was blown away by the opening drum sequence in the movie Rockers. Watched it last nite all baned up.

    You experienced users should make the move up to the Green bottle. Ol’ Leo wouldn’t lead you down the wrong road here…just brace yourself the first time.

    Enjoy your flight @butter

    Speaking of the CC Drops, I must admit I’m a little bummed to miss the Roo this year. Last year I had such an amazing time checking out so many amazing bands, plus PH. While this year’s headliners don’t move me, there’s still an abundance of great music/new music to check out.

    But what an energy commitment to get down there, survive, and return home -not a casual undertaking, and I have a high tolerance for ‘festival culture’

    And obviously if I thought Roo possible this year, then I’d already be in Chi-town for PH tour. I do have standards after all.

    Sorry for hoggin but wanted to mention again that my friend has an extra SPAC sat in sec 15 and an xtra SPAC sun (lawn)

  8. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    you have to have standards.
    we are civilized after all.

    Haven’t packed yet. Last min ideas anyone? Neem gets here soon.

    Anyone coming to btb with an extra tarp, i need one. No tarjé or Wally world near this dude.

  11. Gavinsdad Says:

    Oh yeah, wise BB resources. I have to clean a glass oney before hersh. My buddy overnites em in alcohol. What’s the best thing to do?

  12. Mitch Says:

    Were back on talk of gold bond? I carry the green bottle with me daily in my bag. That’s one of the first items transferring to the weeklong pack.

  13. Mitch Says:

    Ziplock with enough alcohol to submerge and salt. (won’t disolve and rubs the grime) shake in a jerk off motion so it all slides back and forth.

    No need for overnight.

    It’s the same premise as orange 420 but no orange smell.

  14. Mitch Says:

    And a couple pipe cleaners for backup. You have kids. Those should be around.

    Ms mango saw me use pipe cleaners and laughed cause it was the first time she’d seen them not for arts and crafts.

  15. Gavinsdad Says:

    Thx Mitch. When do you take off?

  16. Leo Weaver Says:

    Damn…Mango beat me to it. Alcohol with clean sand or salt.

  17. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Great baseball ejection. Very funny. Must watch.

  18. SillyWilly Says:

    im bringing out the wine to help me fall asleep tonight…trying not to get into my stash until im on lot tomorrow.

    wine+aleeve= nighty night.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    put that in your fuckin’ report, Mr. P.

  20. AintNoTele Says:

    Wow, I really pick choice times to check back in on the old home place. I just walked into Marshall putting goldbond over and under. Its times like these I wish I didnt know what he looked like. When BB meetups go terribly wrong…

  21. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    @ Gdad isopropyl alcohol and morton’s kosher sea salt.

    The salt crystals are abrasive enough to get the stuff you don’t want on, off.

  22. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Attention folks hitting the greek shows:

    We shoudl all get together are robear’s rental and make tie-dyed togas for the greek.

    Random folks in throughout the venue in tie-dyed togas would be neat to see.

  23. Halden Says:

    Things I have learned from the NBA Finals: The Lakers and Kobe still suck and I love Glen Davis!

  24. Mitch Says:

    about to shower and pack. just stopped at cvs and got 5 hour energy for neemor and i. hopefully there will be enough chatter to keep us awake.

    now what to wear? oh yeah, same shit i wear everyday! tshirt and pants/shorts. great being a dude for times like these.

  25. Mitch Says:


    IF YOU REMEMBER TO BRING NOTHING ELSE, BRING YOUR TICKETS!!! even tho they will be on lot, you dont wanna have bookmarks at home for later. they will annoy you that you spent extra money you didnt have to.

    i’m sure someone on lot will have whatever else it is you left behind too but most importantly, tix.
