Why I am stoked this year more than last year
Last year being my 1st Wanee was unique. I thought the line up was OK. But I thought camping and live music was really cool. I had only ever been to the 1st Lollapalooza and Atlanta's Music Midtown as far as festivals go. My buddy Pocaroba was the brain child behind us going last year. I started spending time on the forum and was shocked at what I thought was a bunch of fake hippy tree huggers that all shared the same beliefs like a weird cult. So obviously I start to stir the poop! It's my nature.
I decided to go to the meet and greet and stand my anti WSMFP ground. What I found was a bunch of generous kind hearted people who basically are better people than myself and less cynical. I was in a real dark place last Wanee as my mother was dying of brain cancer and my father was dying of kidney failure. I was apprehensive of even going afraid of that
I came back from Wanee a different person because despite my situation at the time you guys showed me the world is still full of great people and wanee is a great place to forget about your problems if even only for a few days.
Bridges I am sure were burned, but hey we all do dumb stuff.
My mother passed in May of last year and my father followed in September. I have no hesitations about going this year and look forward to seeing you all. I hope you get to see more of the real me this year than dark emo me from last year
I wanted to have this new wave party thing as a way to say thanks for showing me a culture I did not know existed. It really is a family and like real family you guys didn't turn your back on the should have been blacksheep.
Proud to be a brother and Tuesday can't get here fast enough
