Hansel From Basel, brass magnifying glass necklace: Oh Hello Friend
Hi! Making a quick update before Ed and Deanna pick us up for Day 2 of FYF Fest. My camera got got (rudely) confiscated yesterday so no pictures (even though I saw dozens of random, non press people with dlsrs--HRMPH!!) Ahh it looks like they're here....TBC
Let's see, still recovering from the festival. Guess I'm getting old, although, to be honest, I've always had old person sensibilities. A preference for early bird dinners, a body temperature that is always set to "freezing", and a general dislike for loud noises will do that to you. Grant and I (thanks to the generosity of the Templetons--thank guys!) got to check out both days. We made it a point to see Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. We got hooked up with extra special wristbands that let us go on stage so that was super fun and we made it on stage to each of the acts we wanted to see. I was trying to keep my eyes peeled for any celebs, but I am hopeless at noticing celebrities in real life so I didn't see anyone, although Grant thought he saw Joaquin Phoenix coming out of a portapotty and I maybbeee thought I saw Aaron Paul but I think that was wishful thinking.
Festival fashion is a funny thing. This was my first ever music festival so I was really trying to take it all in. The fashion at FYF was decidedly Spice World 2.0 mixed with the 1997 Delia*s catalog. Lots of belly shirts, circle glasses, butt shorts, that two bun pig tail thing, KIMONOS (dear lawd), fanny packs/ mini back packs. Twas reeeall interesting.
