The Cabaret tent was hands down the best thing at the entire festival, lots
of vaudeville, magic, burlesque, music etc. Given how well Google picks up
moblog there's a chance that the aforementioned performers will find this
page if they ever go egosurfing. If so, hi, and you guys ruled. Ida, you
were hilarious m'dear, and her imperial majesty the Empress Stah was hot as
hell and definitely one of my festival highlights.

Absolutely stunning location for a festival, beautiful weather pretty much
all weekend (in your face, Glastonbury), plenty to see and do apart from
bands, which is just as well as it seems the Ministry of Boredom had quite a
large part in selecting the line-up. Wilco and Damien Rice were the
headliners on Friday, Wilco were technically proficient but dull, dull,
dull. Sort of like Coldplay with Sonic Youth trying to get out, but Sonic
Youth were pretty weakened from having been placed inside Coldplay so
definitely more on the whiny mope-rock tip than the noisy rock tip. They
should do more loud noisy stuff. This is true of most bands. Didn't stay to
listen to damien rice as all that po-faced singer-songwriter shit leaves me
cold but as the sound rolled across the campsite I did note that it did
sound about 20% less sucky than I thought it might have.
The headliners on Saturday were The Good, The Bad and the Queen, which was
also pretty terrible. Wow, the chance to listen to Damon Albarn's glummest
songs ever! Fuckin' partay.
There was some good stuff, though: New Young Pony Club were awesomeness
incarnate - despite not being able to see them, or get in the tent (pic 2).
CSS were also fantastic, as was Bat for Lashes, Scroobius Pip and Dan le Sac
and what I saw of Seasick Steve.
The comedy tent was annoying, as every bugger who got inside sat down,
taking up far more room than if everyone was standing. As a result it was
packed out and it wasn't possible to see Bill Bailey, Dylan Moran, Mark
Steel, Jeremy Hardy or any of the other comedians I wanted to see. The
Literary tent was pretty groovy though, with Robin Ince's book club
providing good book-based larfs throughout the weekend.
And the Cabaret Tent! Which comes next...

In scenes taken straight from the smash hit sequel to Hen, Hen 2, Hen 3: Judgement Hen, Hen 4: Hen Harder, Hen 5: Hen in the City we have hens! At 3.00AM! Obviously! What!....and what's evey wackier is that there's going to be another animal
housemate arriving soon. Seriously, what the fuck.
But yes. 6 hens. Collectively they are the Thickchicks, though there will be
increased individualisation in the morning. Now it's time to go back to bed.

The Darkness, on xbox360, has TVs which show films, old shows, etc. The
ability to watch TV while playing videogames is... Wow. That's progress
