Man. This sucks. It’s one month after I visit Chicago for Wizard World. The only cool stuff going on while I’m out there is Lollapalooza, and there’s no way I’d fork out the amount of money required for that just to deal with heat in a frickin’ park. And that’s speaking nothing of the fact that most of the smaller bands will be playing during the day while I’m holding down a table in artist’s alley with my friends Zach and Sarah. I’m more of a “dank club after 10pm with whiskey and cigarettes” kind of guy rather than an “all-day sunshine in the park” fellow.
Something I Learned Today… has a great Didjits post.
