Bonnaroo! We Made It!

Believe it or not we didn't take tons of pictures! Not sure why! We did have a great time and came home super tired! We camped from Thursday - Monday so that was quite a long time out there. The first night our air mattress deflated and so we had to start sleeping in the Walters' pop out camper! One of these days I will finally convince Erik to get us a VW Westfalia Camper Bus!
I plan to do a comparison blog on the difference between VIP 'Roo and regular 'Roo. Because believe me it was QUITE a difference.
As for the music... I cant believe it but Snoop Dog was truly my favorite all weekend. He was a fantastic and energetic performer! Lots of fun! Also really liked Phish Night 1.
Bruce Springstein "The Boss" was really boring. I don't know why he is popular, and some people really loved him but I was not one of those! He totally took over the Phish Stage night 2, and I literally fell asleep. I was really sad to miss Girltalk lizzybears, but he didn't come on till 2:45 AM and I just couldn't stay up anymore. Erik went and said it was crazy and awesome. I had really been looking forward to Eryka Badu... and she was 30 minutes late ( no apology) then walked out there with TONS of attitude. When you have 75,000 people sitting in the hot sun, planning their eating and bathroom breaks around start times for different stages,... it is really important to be on time, and if you aren't on time, you should at least pretend to care!



Miss Kanye Badu here:
Cory hanging out in the one the VIP tents that was so pretty with provided tables, chairs and lawn chairs and SHADE that sat up on a hill with a fantastic view of the main stage. Also had its own separate REAL bathrooms.

Bonnaroo was so sweet.. Phish rocked.. Bruce Sprinsteen was pretty bad.. At one point he preached to the crowd for about 10 minutes about taking all the sadness and using it to build a house of happiness.. Thanks for the wisdom Boss.. And then when i was back at the camp i heard him playing santa claus is coming to town.. This guy has lost it.

Snoop dogg, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Al Green, Beastie Boys, Jimmy Buffett, Wilco, and all the others we saw were pretty sweet..

Thanks ROO!
