the Wicker Man is prob my favourite film, and if I could live on Summerisle, and spend my evenings singing dirty songs with his Lordship Christopher Lee, I would gladly trade away my current life.
I rode something called a Happy Buss to get to the festival, all on my lonesome. (Maria got there on her own using the public coaches. She's so brave and determined.) The driver played an Oasis compilation, volume at 11, on repeat, for hours. I had just thought, for a second time, about the special kind of moron it must take to write the lyrics "I'm feeling supersonic, give me gin and tonic", when a girl made her way up to the driver and got him to change the CD. "My hero" I thought, then she screamed "Pistols!". So that was fun, and did you know, that through the music in my headphones Johnny's voice sounds just like the wind, or a far off stream? Perfect while driving to a festival in beautiful Scotland.

echo and the bunnymen
zomg they're playing the cutter!!!
David Vanian of the Damned has been rock star, fashion icon and sex symbol to me. Now he looks like a used car salesman or mobster. So sad; but 'sic transit gloria mundi'.
captain sensible on the other hand hasn't changed a bit, but who cares. and they didn't even play jet boy, jet girl.
me using my camera as mirror, I was expecting something horrible, and was pleasantly surprised.
meeting the locals
the looking good thing didn't hold up though :/
from the Jam:
a band that consist of new members and the guy from the Jam I think of as Jumpy Mullet.
It was ok but it's not the same, even if the kid "Jumpy" hired to impersonate Paul Weller was good at it.
SPOILER ALERT!!! so I think all the security around the wicker man must be to make sure the virgin police officer doesn't get out.
