woodstock.66: The LAN poets: WELLtent regulars, u know who u r. woodstock.66.0: WELL Woodstock Demo #1 (wstock1) Sat 13 Aug 94 18:56 You are the regulars. You are just like us WELLfolk. You've never heard of the WELL until Woodstock II. The music plays on, but you keep on coming back here. You post viciously, then return to read the responses. The WELLstaff know you by face or name, and we're glad you keep coming back. You are our LAN poets, and we want to know who you are. woodstock.66.1:
(wstock1) Sat 13 Aug 94 18:57And why, just why do you keep coming back? woodstock.66.2: Jennifer Powell (jnfr) Sat 13 Aug 94 19:01 great question for many of us woodstock.66.3: JT/Alabama (wstock3) Sat 13 Aug 94 19:12 Yeah. A LAN poet. (won't even say I didn't know it). I've been accused of worse. Some conversations have yielded in a tiny understanding of what a LAN might be, and i seem to fit the bill.... woodstock.66.4: jt (wstock2) Sat 13 Aug 94 19:37 for me, anywhere but near a crt is, well, kinda dry. Although I'm always here and don;t even visit the apple tent anymore, but I do tattoo festers with the Apple logo. (See tentative NYTimes). Man what a day!!! ........ woodstock.66.5: Liam (wstock2) Sat 13 Aug 94 19:55 Hi. You may have read my stuff (see grunge and being a fag at woodstock). I have been called a shithead and a nice guy all in the same day by people who live 3000 miles from my home (for my views on grunge and homophobic assholes). That's why I keep coming back. I'll leave you with a poem. ELECTRIC CHAIR The volts The jolts The end woodstock.66.6: [34m2 young 4 # 1[0m (isaac) Sat 13 Aug 94 20:03 [5mprofound[0m woodstock.66.7: flo nyc (wstock3) Sat 13 Aug 94 20:25 this is the only place i have found here where one can enter into an extend diologue about what is going on around one.. woodstock.66.8: jt (wstock1) Sat 13 Aug 94 20:48 ditto, sorta. I know i've never seen anything quite like the Well myself. I always figured that if I could ever log-on, which I will in the near future, I would find my creativity flowing more freely, and I see this is correct. I'm here at woodstock going on about 30 min. sleep because I've been too busy to even scope a spot. I wasn't too busy to catch two good acts on the north stage today, and I'll be sure to fill in details on Arrested Development's Sunday Show for any of you who are interested (though I suspect most of you aren'). woodstock.66.9: LionDude (wstock2) Sat 13 Aug 94 21:58 Off to bed to rest my head. My tent is drowned but it found. Unlike others, with mud covered, I did not slip and fall. Well as you see my brain is went to bed some time ago. ZZZZzzzz.... woodstock.66.10: Chris Carroll (marvy) Sun 14 Aug 94 06:16 It's cool that the Well staff is starting to recognize regulars. Though one of the primo advantages of online fun I still sometimes wish I could see what y'all look like. woodstock.66.11: Ruler of the (cosmos) Sun 14 Aug 94 11:03 But isn't that what the www is for? Now if I could just get me a TCP/IP line... woodstock.66.12: Deadly When Silient (wstock1) Sun 14 Aug 94 13:05 Absent of substance! The Enddddddddddddd woodstock.66.13: Bulgur & Wheatgrass & Windham Hill Songs (mglito) Sun 14 Aug 94 13:24 Nevr assume anything, JT. I would DEFINITELY be interested to hear ALL postings about music there! (Arrested Development ROCKS!) Re: 10 WELL tent should take pictures of all the regular LAN posters at the tent & upload them to WWW!!! :-) woodstock.66.14: Liam (wstock1) Sun 14 Aug 94 14:16 Hi, this could end up being my last transmission as the end of the fest is nigh (unless it goes into monday). I'd like to thank the Well staff for being great, the people at the festival for being peaceful and cool (and for sharing your drugs with me), Green Day for the greatest live show I've ever seen and MTV for being total cocksuckers (they made an adolescent kid get naked with his girlfriend outside my tent). If I do not return, farewell If I do ... woodstock.66.15: erinita (wstock3) Sun 14 Aug 94 17:37 hi folks, i'm back! no liam, the end is far from nigh, in terms of wdstk days. rave til dawn monday morn at least, then i'm sure the partying will continue to go on.. p.s. JT, i like arrested development too i went home sat eve, and came bk for tonight's eve/morn festivities, enjoyed a shower & actually slept in my own bed. i think i got like 8 hrs sleep (which is below my normal quota), tried to stock up on some xtra hrs sleep, but i've been running on this bizzarre wdstk high, & haven't bn able to do anything else but watch all the news coverage... eeek my buddy joey is here agn too, (repeat visit, and he's also L of LAN) & we're psyched to be bk. the redhead went home & stayed home though.. he says he has to work in the morning.. lame excuse. i'm going from here straight to work at 8:30am.... he'll be bk on the well when he gets to American U in DC.. unfortunately i don't have the cash at the moment for a computer, so this just might be my last entry for a while.. then agn, i'll visit him sometime.. ps, on a rough estimate, how many LANs did you have visit? take care folks, it's bn buckets of fun. maybe i'll catch you in SF someday toodles! :) woodstock.66.16: Puddnhead Wilson (warfrat) Sun 14 Aug 94 21:33 To everyone who posted in this conf. I really enjoyed the xchange. I didnt watch on TV cause I dont have cable. My only exposure to woodstock was through the WELL. It was very exciting reading the posts as the whole thing went down. I got a pretty good image of what was happening. Now I definately want to see some footage so I can relate to what I've read. What an interesting bunch of cool people logged on this weekend. Liam, you were one of the most controversial and also commendable for the attack on the jesus freak homophobe. But you sure make enemies fast. Wouldn't mind meeting you someday anyway. Hope y'all took home more than just mud and fewer brain cells. Bring home a stronger sense of unity among your friends, young and old alike. Share it outside of Saugerties for the rest of your lives... Thanks for sharing. Peace. woodstock.66.17: gimme an "F"! (reva) Sun 14 Aug 94 22:52 I sure enjoyed meeting you folks! Some very distinctive voices and personalities emerged very quickly! woodstock.66.18: well's cargo (dlee) Mon 15 Aug 94 09:42 Yeah, thanks, guys! Nice to meet you, and see your reports! woodstock.66.19: Ruler of the (cosmos) Mon 15 Aug 94 15:38 Yeah, the flow was almost as if they'd been spending oodles of bucks like the rest of us in Net surfing!
