This is not good!!! woodstock.10.8: Noah (wstock1) Thu 11 Aug 94 14:05 I can't get any food around here. It seems dumb, because I have a meal pass, and I'm willing to pay money, but my meal pass is for another part of the site and the people here won't take my money. That's my comment! woodstock.10.9: on the other side of the sun (miga) Thu 11 Aug 94 19:11 I got a vegie burrito! I wandered around the grounds tonight and it is huge. People everywhere, setting up tents and hanging out. no live music yet but they're playing tapes. actually, that's the main stage. Todd Rundgren is playing even as I type! The crowd seems to be a mix of boomers and genxers and seems happy and excited overall. the main space is big and the stage has it's back to the mountains... the sunset was lovely... someone just walked by with some nag champa incense woodstock.10.10: Robin Joss (joss) Thu 11 Aug 94 20:29 How much for the burrito if I don't have a pass? woodstock.10.11: editorial comment (green) Thu 11 Aug 94 21:10 ['be there now' is now a slogan for MCI!] woodstock.10.12: (jstraw) Fri 12 Aug 94 06:04 woodstock.10.13: otis (nycjag) Fri 12 Aug 94 06:29 I think it is really neat that folks were let in in time for the soundchecks woodstock.10.14: Jeremy Kashnow (kash) Fri 12 Aug 94 07:51 I know it's not likely, but are they allowing taping of this? If not, s that stoppping anyone? woodstock.10.15: on the other side of the sun (miga) Fri 12 Aug 94 11:33 The vegie burrito cost me $6 in aluminum "Woodstock '94" scrip. But along with some yummy food I met some cool people from Seattle who came out here to make burritos! woodstock.10.16: otis (nycjag) Fri 12 Aug 94 11:46 that's neat! i'd love to get the story on where the people selling food came from. it seems like they are from all over the country and not your run of the mill concession runner. does anyone know how all that cam about? woodstock.10.17: Fuzzy Logic (phred) Fri 12 Aug 94 18:11 I just talked with the folks at Ameba, M, and they all say HI. I'll be there tomorrow, plus of course we have Friends & Family tomorrow night alongside Ravestock. Maybe we can compare realtime musical experience :) woodstock.10.18: cerise (wstock5) Fri 12 Aug 94 19:23 Just got back from a great cruise to THE BIG STAGE. There's a mud pit workin stage left with about 100 brown people taking running starts and sliiiiiiiding! The tents are creating a bit of a bottle neck in some spots but we've found some great alternative routes through the woods. The ciccada symphony that's happening around this little stream has an almost hypnotic effect. The cool mist settling in adds a most etherial feel. Wish you all were here. woodstock.10.19: on the other side of the sun (miga) Fri 12 Aug 94 21:39 Hey, Phred! Have fun tomorrow! I'm about to head off to Orbital, Dee-Lite and the Orb... the Orb is sposed to be on for the sunrise. d:) And here *now* - we're on IRC in a woodstock channel, people are calling in to say hi on the phone and TOdd Rundgren is playing in his midi-thang. He's just amazing... he's been playing 4 times a day and the people in his tent are having a blast. woodstock.10.20: gail williams (gail) Sat 13 Aug 94 11:21 Wheeee!!! woodstock.10.21: James Spottiswoode (spottisw) Sat 13 Aug 94 13:18 a big hello from London - how's the show? p '.' woodstock.10.22: [31mMuch[32[5m2[0m[33mYoung[34mfor[44mWoodstock[0m[35m[5m1[0m (isaac) Sat 13 Aug 94 14:29 Great on PPV! woodstock.10.23: infinity's child (dtv) Sat 13 Aug 94 18:04 woodstock.10.24: Jane Gallion (chalis) Sun 14 Aug 94 08:34 Be there *then* AND *now* woodstock.10.25: on the other side of the sun (miga) Thu 18 Aug 94 16:06 Since nobody is There Now any longer, I'm freezing this topic. :)
