Comfest is always a good time, if for nothing else just to people whach. You will definitly see some interesting things down there. I won't be making it this year, heading down to Cave Run KY to do some fishing for a few days.

I will be working (EMS) the downtown area Saturday night. I'm sure we will be called over to the area several times.

Saturday's shift was crazy. Started my evening shift off by transporting the stabbing victim, who later died. In 10 hours I had 16 runs, 10 of them coming after midnight. No, there was no sleep. Thanks Com fest.

Big hippie festival and a kid gets stabbed. I went down there when I was 19 once and never went back to many socialist liberal hippies.

Thank you for your service ski.

That's pretty sad, thank C bus not Comfest, Bonnaroo is the biggest Fesitval in the US with a ballpark of around 85000 people over 4 days and not one person died due to violence, just one person found dead due to non violence, not even drugs, medical condition or sorts. Pretty sad that a stabbing happened. Thanks for your service Ski.

Dunno why this was closed, so I'm invoking my admin right to re-open :D

They're saying on the news that it was an accidental stabbing...incinuating self inflicted. I dunno how someone can stab themselves 5 times, but regardless he wasn't murdered, and thus shouldn't shed any poor light on Comfest.

I had a good time, but saturday night was a little crowded for my tastes. I've never seen it like that. we didn't stick around too long. Sunday was much more chill.

You have that right, so use it. Amen to that Shakes :D

That is weird, 5 times and it was self inflicted, unless the dude was having a bad trip of sorts or on pcp or something crazy I don't see how that could have happened, maybe the story will come out, on the news I doubt it maybe on myspace or facebook through friends....maybe. :confused:

Comfest is a good time, wish I lived closer or my brother still lived in C-Bus so I could go and stay with him and attend. Looking forward to my trip to All Good though, plenty of Festival action coming my way in 8 days!

How was the music this year?

it was so so. saturday had some loud angry hip hop on the main stage for most of the time I was there. I can dig hip hop, but I didn't think it made the vibe any less strange and unfriendly... Friday, the Floorwalkers played well. I usually dig their shows.

Mike Perkins on Sunday was pretty good. its been years since I've seen him. He was a little more pop sounding that I had remembered, but still decent.

I was there on Friday. That place never ceases to amaze me. I usually walk in and become slightly uncomfortable due to the amount of insane people around me. I then began drinking beers and everything got a little less strange :D
