Lightning in a Bottle 2008

So Lightning in a Bottle was beyond amazing....beyond what I expected....it surprised me, enlightened me, challenged me, and ultimately inspired me.

The music was excellent, including great performances from Joplin, Body Rock DJ's, Braden, J Boogie, Nosaj Thing, Jupiter, The Glitch Mob, Pnuma Trio (my fav of the weekend), Lucent Dossier, Faith, Wyse, Oso, Kan'Nal, Ruff Hauser, Random Rab, Bassnectar, Zilla, and Adam Freeland.

Truth be told, part of the reason the weekend was so much was because I was with some amazingly down people, some of which I met for the first time.

First thing was a camp roll call.






Wondering around on the Friday night, it was raining...so Jordan brought out his duck.



In fact, everything around us was there to play with.



Saturday morning, I started my day off with some good House music from homegirl Joplin.



This is the Indiana Jones river crossing.




Later on Saturday....."Everyone make a funny face"




This is a green MC. He makes all the electricity he needs for his performance on the spot. Plus his rhymes were tight!



Here's Shane, one of my spiritual guides, no literally this dude is stellar!



All the little ground squirrels got driven out of their homes by the rain, and probably by all the bass too.



But everyone was very careful to take care of them.



Sydni was getting high.



The Body Rock DJ's really got down!!!



This was our little "downtown"



Syd and Stacie swanging.



Saturday night, J Hutch, Byers, and I decided to Break on Through to the Other Side. So much fun was had that I barely took my camera out. None during our home made mob scene during Glitch's set, and none during Pnuma Trio where I broke new ground dancing, but I only managed to get this picture....which in a perfect way sums up all the fun we had on our trips.



(And a just a personal note here to my 2 comrads....you guys were a total inspiration for me! Blessings!)

Anyway, Sunday was much more chill. The main stage was designed so beautifully, all made of bamboo.



Hello.



Jordan.



The weekend contained soooo much laughter, non of which I can remember, but here is some of our extended crew rocking the camp site.








Next year I am definitely volunteering....look how much fun they were having with trash duty.



Final picture of the weekend was on Monday morning.....




I saw sooo many amazing things, and so many beautiful and creative people, and I decided to not worry about taking too many pictures...because out there, if you stop to take a picture, you might miss your moment! Like all those things that I got to experience...and that we all got to experience!

Thank you to everyone I camped with, you guys are fucking killers! I love you.


Next year -----------> We are all doing it BIG!
