god dammit. but i mean think about it for $325 you get the following:
FREE BEER - easily a $50-100 dollar savings if you enjoy beer like i do
two meals a day? - ~$40
access to viewing decks?
chrome fanny pack - LOL
whew. that’s alot for the PIP package. also- dafuq does PIP stand for? this will be my first ffffest so please be gentle, or not /whatever. i missed sxsw this year and i’m rill sad that i haven’t been back to atx since last october - WOWZERS. you can tell i’m rationalizing all of this.
but it really is important to have things to look forward to- and since spain happened (prepare for that rant of a post soon) i haven’t had much to look forward to.
i haven’t done a fall festival in FOREVER (ACL 07) and have heard great things about ffff. let’s do this.
