No kidding. Only now is the air-con starting to get into gear, now it's not so bad.

I'm down south, not too far from the Hills and Marion. The north-east is pretty unfamiliar territory to me, I must say.

I went to the Glendi today, absolutely boiling - $4 Mythos Lagers sucked my wallet dry. Pity there weren't too many people, cause it's always a well-meaning festival. I hope it's bigger next year.

I was working this evening at the Royal Adelaide, and it is getting completely mental - the heat is driving everyone insane I think! We had ambulances literally lined up back onto North Terrace!!
I had planned on going to the Future Music Festival Tomorrow, but it's just going to be too damn hot!!

There's been ambulances everywhere over the past few days, heh. My mum's an ambo officer back on Yorke, she was on call for most of the time I was there.

Yeah, I was wondering how the heat would affect that, too. Looks like it'll be a good show anyway, how much are tickets?

I think its about $100. I really only wanted to go to see The Chemical Brothers again and I don't think I want to bake in the sun all day just to see them!

These festivals are always more expensive than I expect. The Womad is like, $150 or something? Pretty unreal.

Good choice to just stay home tomorrow, I'd say.

I wouldn't have minded going to Womad - I've never been, but was working all this weekend up til now Looked like a good crowd there tonight tho, judging by the traffic round there on my way out of work!

Yes, the news seemed to suggest it was doing pretty well. Being in the Botanics, I imagine it would have been rather nice, despite the heat.

A mate of mine was thinking of going... 'til he noticed the prices. I would like to go one year, as long as I can bury my head in the ground while the John Butler Trio are playing.

Now now....that's not very nice...

JBT were the main reason I was thinking of going


You're probably right tho, it would definately beat a couple of the 40+ days I've spent at the Big Day Out!!

OK, so I wasn't quite out for the night. I did more housework. So here I am for a few more minutes.

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend! I was more interested in the international acts, but you know, different strokes and such.

I've only been to the BDO once, back in 03 - great lineup, at least at the time I loved a lot of the bands there, Foos, MGF, You Am I, Vines, QOTSA. Did you go this year?

Oh hey Axxo!

Hey Mandy, have we sucked you into the postwhorehouse too?

And glad you're still around, Saddo.

Though I really should be out soon. I have to be up around 8:30am and it's already nearly 1:30am. Oh well, what's more lost sleep?

Got to admit, I don't see the appeal in festivals like the BDO. Huge crowds, often full of obnoxious drunk teenagers/twenty-somethings, straining to hear a brief set by bands that tend to not be that good, while dying in a paddock all day and being gouged at food and drink stalls.

That said, if a festival came down here with Porcupine Tree, Pure Reason Revolution, Anathema, Blackfield, Orphaned Land, Agalloch, and so forth, you wouldn't be able to stop me going.
