    Huh! I was there as well. Decided to skip the rain and missed Bob Mould. Thought the Pixies were just okay, sound was off, but finished strong.

    The Replacements were effing AMAZING! I loved the setlist, energy, everything. One of the best live sets I have seen.

    BTW, The Violent Femmes were outstanding as well. I didn't expect them to be as good as they were. Blondie was really good as was Rancid. Flip-side is I will never understand the popularity of Blink-182. Those guys are just awful.

    Wish I'd known you were there, though I remember you remarking that it would be a good festival to check out. Missed Friday and Saturday because of Yom Kippur. Would love to have seen Blondie. Haven't seen the Femmes in almost 20 years. I don't get Blink-182, though they might have been decent live. Not a huge Rancid fan, but I imagine they are very exciting live, like Suicidal Tendencies. I don't own a single album, but I've always had a blast at their shows. Always walked away with some kind of injury as well.

    You should have seen the first aid tent after that set. It looked like a MASH unit after a mortar attack. There were people on gurneys with their knees being immobilized and at least one guy with a back injury. I was just there to get some antiseptic and a bandaid on my elbow. Glad I've been working out and glad I stuck with Aikido all these years. The footwork and low center of gravity kept me on my feet for the most part. Even when I did fall, I was usually able to roll right back up, except when five or six people reached down to pick me up at once. I was the oldest person in there by at least ten years but nobody could keep up with me. I ran into people the rest of the night who recognized me from the pit and gave me high fives or some kind of salute.

    Man, my moshing days are long gone. No doubt I would have ended up on one of those gurneys and I'm sure I would have put a few there, too. I am sorry I missed Suicidal Tendencies. Classic So Cal stuff there.

    I'm not a Rancid fan but was pleased they put on a really solid set. Blink showed up as I thought they would, a poser pop-punk band who has two members that are vastly inferior to their drummer.

    Glad to hear quicksand is still together! I've seen them a couple of times.

    I hurt my knee in a Local H mosh pit in 1998. Never again.

    That's because he created it, knows where it came and, thus, feels it in a real, genuine way.

    Sustained a mild concussion at a Suicidal Tendencies show in the mid-80s. I was a skinny, out of shape punk in my mid 20s, so I got what I deserved. At 55, my bench, squat and deadliest are just below or above 300, I can row 5000 meters in just over 20 minutes and I spend three to four hours a week training in Aikido. That last part did the trick. The footwork in Aikido is perfect for moshing. If only moshing was good for Aikido. Had to leave the mat the other night because of a hip flexor injury I had managed to ignore for two days. Still icing it.

    I freaking love the mosh pit. I'll be back there next year, though better prepared.

    Good stuff! You are in better shape than I am. Being thin (like you and I were in those pits) isn't a good formula for pit longevity. The big boys will bounce the skinny guys out pretty quickly. I ran into a guy that had to have weighed 240 lbs, and he wasn't moving like a slow, fat guy. I landed about five seconds later.

    At 37 I consider myself too old for pits I feel after shelling out the bucks for the show I actually want to watch the band. Had my fill of pits in my younger skate punk days

    You liked it because you wanted to father her triplets.

    Hello, Toon and Strange and the music guys. I have taken a year off of this shit and come back to trash Vols and I realize that that barely even needs doing anymore.

    I'm streaming that new Mazzy Star record off NPR right now. I never really loved them back in the day, but this is pretty agreeable.

    I have been listening to a hell of a lot of Come lately.

    Is Ellaguru still active in these parts?
