More Than We Expected

Yesterday did not go as expected. It went BETTER than expected!! We began our day pretty tired from the night before. We had learned our grounds, where we could and couldn't go. These media passes don't get us backstage for the bigger guys like Bruce Springsteen (bummer) but, they do get us into the the press conferences and we've found that's where the true fun is! So after we had planned out our day and decided to check out some comedy we began to hear some singing in the distance that sounded a lot like Jimmy Buffet. We thought we'd check it out since even if it wasn't Jimmy, the guy sure came close. It was a complete secret that Jimmy Buffet was going to be here!! And my husband happens to be his biggest fan! After a great concert we made our way back to the press conference area where we were able to meet him. Unfortunately, his two HUGE bodyguards wanted him out of there quickly so we did manage to get a picture with him but not his autograph. After Jimmy we headed onto Bon Iver. We were able to get backstage, and sneaky little me, I dragged us past our normal viewing area to the designated photographer section so we could get a closer look. That lasted about 1/2 hour before his bodyguards caught us! Ha! Living life on the edge, right?! But it was all perfect timing because the concert was coming to an end so we decided to get in line for Jimmy Fallon. Basically, all in all, everything just feel into place yesterday. We ended up with excellent seats for Jimmy Fallon and didn't stop laughing for about 2 hours straight! My face literally hurt from laughing so hard. I have managed to gather a lot of video, however, the internet access here in the middle of nowhere isn't the best. I'm not going to risk loading it while I'm here, but plan to post a great video recap of our adventures when we return. This also explains why the blogs have been few and far between. I really WANT to...but the internet gods aren't letting me! So I apologize for that. Today we are getting ready for another big day starting with Citizen Cope, followed by Erykah Badu and then Snoop Dogg. I'm an crossing my fingers that Citizen Cope and Snoop Dogg do a press conference tonight. I guess only time will tell. Either way, I'm grateful for the memories I've made thus far. We been having an incredible time that I will never forget. --posted by Trish DeFever

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"
A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984. A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:The Human League "(Keep Feeling) Fascination
It was almost a clean-sweep this morning for the synthesizer heavy "(Keep Feeling) Fascination") by the Human League. Everybody was in the mood for a little 80s fun! It made it up to #8 on the charts in 1983, a couple of years after the British pop...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the 70s, and...

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...
