I am in event paralysis. Too. Many. Things. This is your official NON ACL Guide. ACL folks… here are all things ACL from do512 and of course, the schedule. For those of you not attending, there is still pleeeeeeeeenty to do this weekend. And you’re probably smarter. You can have fun without standing in a potentially muddy field waiting for the musical inspiration of people with bad hygeine to wash over you and cleanse you of your ordinary nature. What? Yeah i said it. This weekend you have a scintillating array of choices… will you go to oktoberfest at the lake? the hairiest man festival? chumbofest with new orleans food/music? See T bird @ the awesome soul show at mohawk? Decisions decisions.
Speaking of inspired, win a $50 itunes gift card by helping friend Heather rename her blog. What was once a workout blog has become so much more… a hilarious chronicle of what goes on in her life. Rules and details here.
Onto the good stuff.
