Glastonbury Rule 1

I'm going to try and 'moblog' Glastonbury this week. If I can get out of the mud.

This was set up as an experiment to see if we can moblog a pubcrawl as we were on it. We argued: If it fails, it will likely be down to technology or drink. My money's on drink.
Fortunately I passed go and have £200.

Some interesting metallic sculptures around the circus tent. Just watched a performer fall off an 8 foot ladder, but if got up and finished the show. Good lad!

Comedy music.

Alright. One last one. Mitch Benn in the Cabaret Tent. He's a funny guy; singing about how he has to murder James Blunt.

I saw Mitch Benn in the Lyric Theatre a couple of weeks earlier and when he opened with the same song I thought I was about to experience the same set, but the banter in between was great and new (to me).

Got a personalised signed CD from him afterwards outside the tent.

This is the poetry tent.

The weather has taken it's toll on my phone. So this is probably my last real time update. Will do more when i get back.

EDIT: I've always said that poetry is meant to be performed and not read and this guy illustrated the point. The only downside was the completely self-reverential poem he performed at the end which went on about how brilliant and important poets are.

No, they are not. Sorry.

Me fone bad. No mo fone.

EDIT - This is the best message that I could send without the bottom half of my keypad. Think I did quite well. I couldn't even take any new pictures and the phone fluctuated in performance throughout the weekend.

Umbrellas are the in vogue item.

Umbrellas are the in vogue item to watch Amy Winehouse. Yet another downpour. Amy Winehouse was good, but she could hardly string a sentence together between songs. Her and Suggs must have been at the same party last night/this morning.

Bit of sun greets Modest Mouse.

Bit of sun greets Modest Mouse on the Other Stage but soon replaced by more torrential downpours. Starting to get disheartening now. It is ridiculously wet. At least the showers are sporadic and not continuous. Becoming more frequent mind.

Disco Ensemble in the John Peel tent.

You can say one thing for noisy bands - at least they're enthusiastic.

We just dropped in here inbetween deluges. Didn't stay long.

The sun has come out for a while.

Hope it stays. It's been that wet that my phone screen is messed up with condensation. Hope it'll be alright.
