I had three in a day. Not exactly fun, but I didn't spend the hours prior crying in horror and then pass out.

I guess you're not keen on donating blood, then, Daniel?

I'm off to the Red Cross tomorrow... I think it'll be my 50th whole blood donation. They gave me a badge for it last year but I couldn't actually donate that time cos I'd just come back from America. I want to earn that badge, dammit! *L*

Did anyone else have to sign in to Interference today? The site usually remembers me but today it forgot.

Nice! I'd love to be able to do that, but I just can't.

Why would anyone want to see Toro Y Moi live? I mean, seriously. M83 and The Horrors are dynamic, interesting performers that will get the crowd going.

Also, Daddy's Highway is a tremendous album and keeps getting better. Just throwing that out there.

Toro Y Moi is quite good live too, I don't know why you're rubbishing him. And I've heard M83 is a bit poor live ... in fact, I'm not sure I've seen many good reviews of his sets.

I'm really tossing between sticking to one stage (which has a great run of Cults, Yuck, Toro Y Moi, and Washed Out to headline), or giving up a good spot to bolt over to the main stage for The Horrors instead of Toro Y Moi and/or M83 instead of Washed Out. I've got tickets already to the Washed Out/Toro Y Moi sideshow, solely because of Washed Out's awesomeness (to me, Toro Y Moi has been consistently incapable of writing anything as good as Blessa/Minors again), but Charlotte can't go to that so she wants to see them at Laneway. Not sure I want to give up a good spot and go solo to fight the crowds for M83 and The Horrors, bands who I am idly interested in seeing but both who underwhelmed me with their 2011 releases.

Because I would never, ever want to hear an artist like Toro Y Moi at a festival. I know that's probably unfair, but chillwave is awful outdoors. At least M83 will fill out their sound.

In my experience though, staying at one stage is the way to go. I haven't had a lot of good stories that involved standing a mile from the act, other than "well, I got to see so and so live, technically." All of the really memorable shit was up close and personal. God, I was like 5 feet from Cut Copy once. Made my life.

Toro Y Moi has pretty much well departed chillwave now. I don't even think of him as being in the same genre as Washed Out and Neon Indian now that he's decided he'd rather either plagiarise Jamiroquai or record weak funk of his own (then again, I think all funk is weak).

But yeah, even if I bail in time for The Horrors, I'd just be standing way up the back ... and I am too polite to try to force my way through. I wish that their sideshow didn't clash with a gig I'm already seeing.

Going through NME's 100 New Bands for 2012, and having a fucking great time. Will post my list of artists I'm interested in when done.

Link to the 100?

Also, huge to RYM for blacking out re: SOPA. Apparently Sharifi, the guy who runs it, actually has to engage a lawyer's services because he keeps getting letters from artists/labels who apparently can't read and think RYM hosts all the albums.
