Bored of Glastonbury yet?
Too bad. I'm not.
I've just been watching some of the BBC highlights on Barg & Hen's Sky+ box (kindly served with a tasty risotto and some pear cider to satisfy my cravings). My overwhelming feeling at the moment is that I want to go back and do it all over again - rain, mud and everything.
Hell, in some light, even the mud looks beautiful.
I think that maybe you should read someone else wittering on about the festival for a change. What do you say? After all, there's so much going on, that pretty much every single person who went will have a different take on it.
-> Sarah has just put up some of her fabulous photos
-> Hen shares her thoughts on her first experience of an English festival (she mentions the rain once or twice though)
-> Lord Bargain shares his festival highlights. In spite of what you may have read, not everyone thought Mika was shit. Well, at least one person didn't anyway.
-> Ben has just kicked off his festival review. Expect a rave review of CSS on the Other Stage any time now.
-> In fact, Glastonbury is such a good festival that Ian even finds time to leave Plusnet alone for a bit, and I believe he was actually seen smiling....!
-> Here's the BBC site (I hear they had some great bloggers...)
-> Here's the Guardian
-> and don't miss Charlie Brooker writing about his first festival for the Guardian
"Imagine forcing the cast of Emmerdale to hurriedly construct Las Vegas at gunpoint in the rain. Then do it again. And once more for luck. That's Glastonbury: a cross between a medieval refugee camp and a recently detonated circus".
I want to go back and watch Iggy and the Stooges now. And The Twang. And Editors.... and so on. I also wouldn't mind seeing some of the bands I did see all over again. John Fogerty looked brilliant on t'telly!
Having watched their set now, I think you can keep the Killers though.
And here's a discussion point for you: does Jo Whiley look brilliant or like a Terrahawk? I can't quite decide....
