Posted:I encourage everyone with luffly CG photos to upload them into their HoP Gallery so that our fire friends overseas get a glimpse of the particularly verdant setting at Common Ground.
The CG crew coulda made their lives easier and hired out a hall or a gym, but they constructed wicked spaces from scratch every year - not every festival has the combined resources, knowhow and enthusiasm to pull that off, and it deserves a photographic record.

It's pleasing to know that the crew had chances to take a breather during the fest this year, despite the escalating lavishness.
You don't get volunteer effort like that unless people really love doing it!

Biggins, you were one of the DJs at CG, right?? Wouldn't happen to know the name of the song that sounded like it was entirely constructed of metal clinking against other metal, would you?? Or would anyone else perhaps know?

well if pottering around drinking Coopers Pale, plying people with so much Gin and Tonic that they fall over and playing other peoples music makes something an awesome entity then i am proud to be a part of it :op

cheers for the info on the acro peoples everyone, i'll chase them up. Wooticles!!

I'm also hanging out for the film footage which will hopefully appear at some point.

As for the metal tune...dont really know to be honest. If you can remember (vaguely) when in the weekend then **maybe** we could track down the DJ culprit but its always tricky playing hunt the tune after the moment has passed.

Posted:Yeah, I figured it'd be a big ask for the metal tune... due to intoxication I've got no clue when it was played, really... But I figured that asking wouldn't hurt anyway.

Ah well, I've just recently discovered Animal Collective, anyway... they're good stuff.
