Midsummer Rock Festival 1970, Part 3: my new favorite video on YouTube.
SHOW YOUR WORK
2:28 - The father who drove his kids to the festival from Battle Crick, hasn’t seen them in 11 hours, and it totally cool with that. He’s very pleased no one is dirty talking.
4:30 - The commentators talking about the festival sound like I must sound when I talk about Ke$ha. A friendly reminder that we all sound like this when we talk about anything that isn’t our thing. “And the kids don’t seem to mind this at all.”
7:23 - An audience member diligently sketches a young Iggy Pop. (Live-blogging circa 1970?)
8:54 - Iggy gets lost in the crowd. As he sings “I feel all right,” a woman asks him if he’s all right, then begs to take his picture.
10:05 - “That’s PEANUT BUTTER!”
A potent reminder of why Zan and I are solid internet bros.
