Hey-o! It's definitely Saturday and I'm definitely really fuzzy on the details of the last oh, say, 40-some odd hours. (I do, however, know where my glasses are.) It's been a blur of food and beer and music and chigger bites everywhere — I pulled one out of my nipple this morning. My phone is acting crazy, my wife probably thinks I'm dead and the smell coming from my feet makes me think I've been dead for a few days already. Yay for Bonnaroo.

So far the musical highlight have been a bad ass set from Savanah, Ga., metal outifit Baroness — nice dudes, met 'em in line for booze — and the absolutely earth-shaking set from Daryl Hall and Chromeo. Even better than watching DHC though was watching How I Became The Bomb's Jon Burr and Mercy Lounge's Drew Mischke watch DHC — those two dudes were like kids in a candy store if all the Swedish fish were made out of grain alcohol and amphetamines. I was surprised just how seamless the classic popster and the Quebecois electro duo team up worked out — don't know why but I wasn't expecting everything to be so, so smooth. It was like baby powder on sweaty balls — silky, silky smooth and oh-so-satisfying.

I've been watching a lot of TV this year, which is a weird thing to do at a music festival but the Celtics are in the playoffs and there was no way in hell that I was going to sit in line long enough to get into the comedy teant to see Conan. That said, watching TV with a few thousand other people is kinda awesome. Bonnaroo's TV is also much bigger than mine, which might make all the difference. Who fucking knows — my phone ran out of juice before we made it through check-in and my entire concept of space and time is just fucked. Today is Wednesday and we're in Berlin, correct?
