you can sit outside the gates and listen to the music. Last year I got to hear Metallica’s entire set without missing a beat, I just couldn’t see them, but who cares about that.

I did the same for Arcade Fire’s set at Lollapalooza around 2009-10ish. Worked out pretty well.

Summer Camp is surprisingly easy to sneak into, as long as you know two people with wristbands that are willing to help - just have one take off their wristband and stay inside (they’re fitted quite loosely usually), and the other keeps theirs on while taking the other one out to meet you in the parking lot. For best results, wear a wristband from another year so you have something on while you’re inside. I know two people who get in this way every year. Here’s hoping they never decide to have checkpoints at the stages like Electric Forest does…

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

Well, imgur was originally created by a Redditor specifically to have an image hosting site that wouldn’t take down images for any reason or disable hotlinking like all the other ones eventually do.

It became the de facto image host for Reddit, then kind of grew into its own thing with its own community.

Somewhat recently, Reddit has provided the option to host images on Reddit itself, but imgur is still very widely used by Redditors.

And that concludes your internet history lesson for today.

Episode IX Discussion <strong><em>Spoiler Thread</em></strong>

After thinking about it a bit more, there may be a third option for completing the Kylo arc. Rather than 1: Achieving total victory or 2: Being killed, he could just walk away from it all. I imagine it could play out where Rey creates some new, stripped-down version of the Jedi without all of their rules and hangups, and Kylo could realize that he really doesn’t have any problem with this interpretation of the Force. He realizes that even after destroying everything that reminded him of the past, it still haunts him, and that he’s the problem, not everything else. He helps Rey defeat the First Order and return peace to the galaxy, then disappears from the story for good.

I could get behind this.

Current Events. No debates! Light political discussion allowed, but if it turns into a debate, take it to the politics thread and include a link here.

This has been fairly widely known/rumored for a long time now.

What gets me the most is that it’s equally as heavily known/rumored that Nicki Clyne (Cally from Battlestar Galactica) is next down the ladder from Mack in the same cult, and that her involvement in said cult was the reason for her departure from BSG.

Is it just me or have most of the Disney era Star Wars posters had a very… Commercial (?) feel to them?

I think the theatrical TLJ poster was alright, but a number of other ones strike me more as promotional posters you buy in stores from the prequel era. Kind of like these: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/a9-IKSKOlpw/maxresdefault.jpg

Commercial might not be the right word but they have a very slapped-together feel, especially some of the Solo ones and for Rogue One.

Maybe it’s just the heavy use of photoshop, I’m not sure.

Wish they would have stuck with the more classic style of poster art instead of the generic blockbuster treatment.

I agree on some, but not all. Don’t think I ever found a TLJ poster I didn’t like, and most of the Solo ones have been excellent thus far. Plus Rogue One had a couple really good ones too. TFA was rough though.

That Dolby Cinema TLJ poster… *drool*

The Music Festival Thread
Time

Thread for discussing music festivals and/or gigs you’re going to, have been to, or would like to attend.

Also the place to ask for advice when it comes to attending music festivals and shows.

OP may be updated with rules as necessary, but for now I’m leaving the thread fairly wide open for discussion as long as it’s related to music festivals or shows.
