So, I had rainbow hair and a million and one people took pictures of me at Bonnaroo. This might be self indulgent, but I was curious to see them if anyone here has any! I talked to so many people because of it!!!

That was Ray Bong, we listened to his c.d. on the way home...The Bongoloids. At first I thought he was a cop...but he's legit. He's an experimental musician out of New Orleans...and is awesome! Here is a shot from that Friday morning address to the nation of Bonnaroo. It was personally one of the highlights of the weekend for me. I love seeing people of every age cutting loose and doing what feels good...it is the essence of what makes B'roo the best 4 days of the year.
that bong guy gave me a pin that said United states of Bonnaroo or something, i got a little video of him dancing during gogol bordello, he was posing for pictures almost the whole time with random people

Yeah he was super nice...he kept running into me and he made sure I got one of each of his pins...my favorite is this little angry smiley face pin...the background looks like television static...it's so awesome. The inside of his c.d. case is great.... it has a picture of him in a tweed suit...he looks like a Harvard professor and his hair is white but you can see traces of the tie dye color still in it....priceless!
But I didn't want to risk losing my camera, so I didn't have one.
whats the point of having a camera if you are not going to use it at something like roo?
Because I have a nice camera for actual photography and this was my first year at the roo, so I didnt know if I could trust myself with it given the state I was in the majority of the time. I will definitely have one next year though.
I saw you in the crowd at one of the shows! Don't remember where it was (Gogol?) - but I remember thinking you had the most beautiful hair I'd ever seen. Very very cool. I was even thinking of asking you about it - but didn't. Where did you have that done?

i ran into Ray Bong on my way into see pj. he runs up to me and says nice hair (i was sporting my rainbow afro wig) and it took me a minute with all the lights but then i realize he's got his hair dyed in rainbow colors so i complement him but mention he needs to work on the volume
we should have a rainbow hair gathering next year!
