did i mention bonnaroo was super sweet?

sure its easy to hate on the bonnaroo, esp as we live so close to it. but boy did i have a kick ass time going with the protomen. we did it up right fo shoooo. did you know as an artist you camp in the finest places, drink the freest drinks, and can go side stage for all the shows that matter? well its the only way to do it, and now i can't go back to the norm way of bonnarooin... the shows were super freaking sweet and i was just in awe of how many really great performers were there busting out grueling 2-3 hour sets all day everyday. I saw a truley eclectic mix of jams public enemy to grizzly bear, animal collective to dillenger esacape plan, crystal castles to merl haggard.... nine inch nails last show ever in the US was a highlight for sure. boy can they still kick it. dillinger playing Wish with NIN was total carnage, you can download the whole show here. David Byrne was repping pretty hard singing a song with the dirty projectors and playing almost all of remain in the light during his set (totally killed it). mars volta, yeasayer, cotton jones, russian circles, andrew bird, and wow and on and on. i also saw micheal showalter and micheal ean black's little show with margret cho and a few others which was my first real real comedy show... possibly ever. so i had to yell at micheal ean black and defend our hometown of murfreesboro telling him that we do indeed know how to spell murphysboro but the free is for freedom. super pumped about there new show whenever that comes on.

jam! they kept on shooting off these gigantic smoke rings like all 80000 people exhaled one huge smoke ring into the stratosphere. jeff is also modling one of the amazing shirts we got made out of 100% post consumer waste, most of which is polyester made from recycled soda bottles. the best idea in a long time and i think we're going to start printing on them. check it out!

also look for more videos posted in the next couple days!
