Thoughts on Bonnaroo/Kanye West

I understand the hate for Kanye; I do. He’s got a douchey personality, he was an absolutely ass in regards to the situation that happened in ‘08, and some of you might just genuinely not like his music. That’s cool. We all dislike different music artists for various reasons. Why I don’t understand, however, is the intense desire to express this dislike at the festival. Some of you are planning on being on his set JUST to boo him, and I’m sure there will be shouts of “Fuck Kanye”, and maybe even signs displaying the same. What do you stand to gain from this? AC is already well aware of the backlash for their booking decision, and they knew that there would be backlash well before they made the decision to go after him. If they weren’t going to pay attention to the “Fuck Kanye”s before, why would they now? They knew what they were getting themselves into. And Kanye certainly doesn’t care - he’s going to put on his show, entertaining thousands of people while doing so, and then go home with a bank account larger than it was before. AC Entertainment/Superfly will do the same. Expressing your dislike and anger at the festival isn’t going to change any of this.

I’m not asking anyone to forget, or even to forgive. I understand the anger and the passion behind it. But why bring it to the festival? Sure, there will be a lot of people that feel the same way, and sometimes it feels good to have a bunch of people rally against something, but does this really make the fest better for anyone else? Although the people disliking Kanye will probably be the most vocal, I’d wager that the large majority of people there are either looking forward to his show or just don’t care - at least not enough to be bothered by it. As important as you may think it is for you to vocalize your dislike of Kanye, you gotta realize that you’re going to be making the fest a worse experience for a lot of people. Kanye’s performance is going to be a small part of the awesome weekend that is Bonnaroo. During his performance, you can rest up for the late nights or drink yourself silly or check out the silent disco or wander around Centeroo and grab some spicy pie or head to one of the other tents so you can be close up for a late night show you really want to see - these are all options that will make the fest better for you, and better for the people around you. Why not do one of those? Bonnaroo is a happy place; let’s keep it that way.

This week’s theme: addiction

I got an angel on my shoulder and his eyes are red and swollen
His cigarette slowly smolders as he tries to keep ‘em open
But he can’t, he nods to a land of no emotion
The ocean of gray surrounds him, he drowns in his own devotion
He prays to a higher powder cuz he’s fighting demons too
Their screaming just gets louder, as soon as heats the spoon
And injects his blessed sacrament, the clouds come rolling in
He holds the needle steady in his broken holy skin
Within seconds he’s in heaven though his wings won’t let him fly
He has no harp to play and his halo never shines
Getting high was all he wanted, so he left the world behind
I wage a war with Satan in my mind
A bag of heaven’ll have you heavin’, leavin’ you with heavy breathin’
But your life is a small price to touch God when you’re a heathen
Anything to fight the demons, won’t defeat em on my own
But instead I keep on fiendin’ cuz my angel’s always sleepin
