in a week i'll be in boot camp, but right now i'm a dirty fucking hippie

mutantfest was amazing.

5lowershop was not a disappointment- nice to finally hear another dj play out some converter. see, power noise and techno can be friends!

i wandered away from the rest of the people i arrived with for a couple of hours on saturday night- doing that was kind of a return to my first days of partying; it's a freeing experience to not know anyone at a party, when you're not hanging around your own little clique is when you make the most new friends. i may have bummed out half of the pack of cloves i brought with me, but it was a worthwhile trade.

the SPAZ vaudeville show was highly entertaining; a highlight that changed the feel of the whole place from "campout rave" to something more like i imagine burning man must be like. (now i really wish i'd taken up the offer of a free ticket to that last year.)

the most unique thing, i think, was that i liked all of the music i heard well enough to stop and listen. even the band at the death metal camp was decent. there was no trance/house/breaks, this party was all breakcore/d'n'b/noise/techno... they don't fuck around up here. it's almost a shame i'm leaving, because the pnw party scene seems to be perfectly aligned with what i've decided i like after 10 years of listening to electronic music.

as "last hurrahs" go, i couldn't have asked for a better gathering of freaks to sit/smoke/drink in.
