YOU SAY "DE LA" I SAY "SOUL"

Grammatically speaking this might be ugly, but since I'm in a rock & roll mindset (and kinda drunk, still a little high) let's rock this shit...

So, I went to the festival alone. My friend's GF never showed so I still went and while walking with a beer in my hand I played a little game called "Find the Hottest Guy In the Crowd". Several candidates appeared but over the din of the music I heard a girl say "Justin!". Since mine is not an uncommon name I ignored it. But then I felt a hand on my arm and it was a friend of mine from high school I hadn't seen in about 9 years. Whoa!

Rather than spend the night alone I rocked with her and five of her friends. Awesome. Better yet one of her friends posed this question to me: "do you "smoke" at all?" To which I responded "yeah, sometimes" and she proceeded to fill her glass pipe to the brim and get me high as hell. Then De La Soul came on stage and blew what was left of my mind. About a quarter into the set I turned to my friend and said "this is like a hip-hop version of the Rat Pack". De La was hysterical and succeeded in engaging the crowd.

More details are forthcoming, including Of Montreal's sick set. But for now I'll just post a De La video...enjoy!



PS - No work for this Guy From Chicago tomorrow! Hells yeah! Put a Pitchfork in me! [Sorry, lame pun].

`G` are you serious? De La Soul? How did that not come across? You need to call me, like, 5 minutes ago.
