Woodstock



Yes, this is future posting.
I am on vacation, so I ain't in town right now. I wanted to do a Woodstock post and knew I wouldn't be around on that particular day. That particular day is is 40 years later than than August 15th, 1969.

It seems everybody knows someone who knows someone who was at Woodstock. There were one hundred thousand and some odd people who attended the thing, so I really doubt there are that many people who know someone who attended. Good gawd. People were so stoned back then they probably all thought they were there.

Nevertheless, it was quite an ordeal . The magnitude of which is out of the question nowdays what with the laws, signed releases, health department issues, traffic and general bullshit red tape which would be required to put on an event of this magnitude.

Food vendors, boarding facilities, sanitation, you name it. Think about it - over 100,000 smelly hippies all gathered in one field for three fucking days? Can you possibly even fathom the stench?



Not to mention the smell of herb floating around.



Oh well. It was probably a hoot anyway.

So you can imagine how bad of a clusterfuck the original must have been!
