“work shifts over, guy with two 40s strapped to his hands, 300 brownies in a cooler, and way too many acoustic guitars. Campers arrive tonight at 12.”
“Thousands still coming in, 7 hours until the first music, and now it starts to pour-and there is a tornado warning. And now lightning everywhere.”
Grateful Dead quote of the day (1.5):
“Such a long long time to be gone and a short time to be there.”
Grateful Dead quote of the day (2.0):

Its that time of the year again, when you can hear “Casey Jones” blaring from one out of every thirteen car along I-40 all the way from Wilimington, NC to Manchester, Tn. Some are drivers, others passengers. Some are bros, some flower children, some too-hip-for-school, and others merely go for the “experience.” The Roo bell has rung, and many are answering its call.
One such comrade is Vinyl Records’ own Reed Turchi, who in his second year of attendance is doing double duty as both an officially registered volunteer staffer and a registered member of the Bonnarro Press circle.
Each day, Reed will be sending along a twitterific message via our Vinyl Press webspace, keeping us updated on who he interviews, who he helps through a bad trip, and who he’s rocking his socks off to.
Without further ado, and I apologize for any anti-climaticism, here is TurchiTweet number one:
“Made 100 beds in rv’s, 105 degrees and now watching someone that is on a double dose of e”
Be safe, stay hydrated, and have fun, Reed.
Grateful Dead quote of the day (1):
“Well everybody’s dancin’ in a ring around the sun, nobody’s finished, we ain’t even begun. So take off your shoes, child, and take off your hat, try on your wings and find out where it’s at.”
