It was a muddy mess for Day 3, even though the weather was dry. The rains the day before completely soaked the new Zilker special grass, and apparently all that rich compost below came to the surface. It made for a stinky aroma and a very messy situation, but that did not deter music fans. Lots of good stuff on Sunday!
One of my former students, Betsy, with me looking a bit haggard after a long fest. It's our traditional ACL pic - waiting for B-52s this time.
Girl Talk was a highlight. I had seen and shown to my classes the documentary about him called Rip: A Remix Manifesto. He samples popular, nostalgic music, makes great mixes, a very high energy show. But, there are some copyright issues regarding his use of other's material. The doc explores the creative nature of his work and highlights some deficiencies in our legal system.
