1) Folk Fest was amazing!!! I had a fabulous time (though I probably should have been a bit more social and not read my book so much) and the line up was fantastic! We got to see Janis Ian (who tells stories wonderfully), Kimya Dawson (who is adorable and I wanted to hug her because she seems huggable...she also had people go up and sing with her, which was sweet), Judy Collins (who was great, obviously, but she sang a few Joni Mitchell songs without giving credit), Tom Paxton, Al Stewart, Great Big Sea (OMG SO MUCH LOVE!!!) and many more. There was this amazing guy who could play a ukulele hardcore! It's amazing how many different sounds he could make with a tiny four-stringed instrument. There were tons of other bands that I could gush over but I wasn't paying attention to WHO was playing so I can't give names until I check the schedule.
Anyway, it was a great time and I got to see a bunch of people from high school that I haven't seen in years. It was fun meeting the Jugglers with Allison (many were rather attractive) and watch Trout Fishing in America with Benny and his friends and acting like children. All in all, a great weekend. Next year I'm TOTALLY camping.
2) The commercial for the new chicken sandwiches at (enter name of appropriate fast food joint here) is just disturbing. That whole "Chicken so good you'll cheat on beef" thing would be fine if it weren't for the angry cow. It's like the cookie singing songs to that chick that I wrote about here
except with a cow. And it's got that pseudo-bestiality vibe. Not quite there but there enough that I'm vaguely creeped out.
