First. Ya I did
So follow John … on wheels.
First is awesome
So follow John … on wheels
It is in Bulgaria. It is an abandoned monument in the form of a space ship.
#26 Would be awesome to be there!
Tomorrowland in Belgium
I think it would kind of suck. You're nowhere near the stage, there's little to no interaction between artist and audience, it's probably pricey and the sound will be shit.
Basement shows, that's where life is beautiful.
You just took hipster to new levels of douchetardness
Because I like to hear the music I'm paying for? Because I don't like to deal with festival bullshit?
buy a cd if you want to hear better.
That's where the interaction comes in. Would you rather stand in a sea of drunks shouting the words as you see pea-sized performers play for a sea of faceless attendees, or see them up close, making eye contact with them, seeing them make connections with others in the audience?
If you wanted to see a big ole thing like this, I'd wager a CD is actually YOUR best bet.
better a sea of drunks than a couple of flannel wearing hipster cunts
Who says it's flannel or hipsters?
Just people who want to listen to music and see those who make it possible.
If all you want to do is 'WOO! PARTY!' that's entirely valid, but I don't think it's any better than a hipster, someone who just does things to be considered cool without really enjoying anything for its own sake.
They're both great, actually. I dig the energy from a big crowd (those are MY PEOPLE!!!!), but a small venue has the whole up-close-and-personal thing which is very different, but equally cool.
WHY CANT WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?
Because we're obligated to argue on the internet!
But, I've been to some festivals. I just think it sucks you have to pay a huge overhead, you're often not allowed to leave, you're not allowed to bring in water or food, and then the venues have the nerve to charge you out the ass for it. (There was a ton of people getting sick at one I attended because everyone refused to buy 2-4 dollar bottles of water.) And this was Phila-fucking-delphia.
I thought we were better than that in this country.
There's always more than one thing going on at a time, so you can never see everything you pay for.
I don't, it's just not my thing, and I don't think it makes me a hipster to say as much.
The birthplace of capitalism and price gouging? That's the place you thought was better than that?
Just saying, but Tomorrowland is in Belgium.
If it gets too hot than the organisation is obligated to hand out free water.
Btw, tomorrowland is more in the DJ scene so there won't be that much of singing I guess. I haven't been there yet but I know from a lot of people that it's awesome. Regarding the sound quality: for what I've heard, that's very good as well.
How come I've never been there? It's sold out in less than 5 seconds…
cos stick is a wanker
Wiener to small to wank, I'm afraid.
no just because of your dickish comment. Read your comment out loud to yourself and realise what a complete wanker you sound like.
To which one, jumping off or standing on the rail to snap the photo?
Looks like how i feel walking home from the bar… Just gotta rotate the picture a little bit.
29 looks like she almost ate rock.
Where? What? #26 looks amazing!
It's called Tomorrowland. It's in Belgium
Tomorrowland has been on my list of festivals I want to go to before I die. Good thing it sold out (all 100,000 tickets) in less then 2 hours.
Yeah, where is this???
#14 I wish I had balls like that, but I soon realize I wouldn't be able to even sit. This dude conceals them pretty good!
#1 A little help here… .what the hell am I looking at? Sports arena, mine pit, alien invasion…?
Soviet monument in Bulgaria, sure felt like being in a ufo when I went
Thanks for asking. I want to know myself. Sorry I wasn't able to provide an answer.
It looks like a scene from the X-Files: I Want to Believe movie.
It could be a shot taken before the editing & CGI process prettied it all up.
Looks like I've been proven wrong. Thanks for clearing that up folks.
all i could come up with was some kind of reinforcement rig for a massive concrete pillar
House of the Bulgarian Communist Party, well what is left of it.
# 1! This is in Bulgaria. Huge communist monument located 2000 meters high in the Balkan Mountains
#1 so they have made a start on the enterprise then?
Slightly flattened cone bra of Madonnas.
Tilt up precoraor to some ind of chimney or smoke stash
my mother was an astronaut
#8 Try sailing they said, It'll be fun they said.
Go home yacht you are drunk !
Don't get how this picture is 'Life is awesome'. Sailing is awesome but wrecking your few thousand dollar boat is not awesome.
#2 I see Mother Nature's nipple!
I guarantee that the locals call it some Martha's nipple or squaw tit hill or some such.
So many of those shots while completely breath taking are close to going from "Life is Awesome" to "Life was Awesome".
Agreed. I got a sinking feeling in my gut just looking at many of the photos. I cannot imagine being there.
#12 – Just me or is that bungie lacking a little substance? Life IS awesome. So much so that I'd like to continue experiencing it.
and i am just sitting here masturbating
#19 Is it just me or does the rock formation to the left of the biker, look like Sid the sloth from Ice Age?
Nice gallery of pics! I think #9 is my favorite.
#1 looks like a spaceship!<img src="http://rj.revolvermaps.com/h/b/26/9do6egcg8eu.png" width="1"/>
Right. Looks like a dark storm of ocean.
And backwards. That's Teahupoo, the sickest wave in the world, and the picture is reversed.
For those of you wondering #26 is Tomorrowland. It's a huge 3-day concert/festival held in Belgium every year. They have a video on Youtube. You can look it up, it looks pretty rad.
this was a great post Dougy, you should do one of these each week.
#30 …. Cape Town – That's my city
mine too, I may go walk up table mountain, or i could surf the net then drink some booze…….
Cape Town <3 Best city in the world!
