Carl starting to walk off stage and then his funny expression as he realized the rest of the band was taking a bow.  And the rest of the guys cracking up about it. 

As for the music - what Whippy said.

jaye, that Carl moment was hilarious!  thanks for reminding me of it!

getting back to my room every night wearing second-hand glitter  :thumbsup:

I got video of Thong Boy with his sack hanging out. After watching it I realized he was the nut on the second level of the stage area rooms, who was naked on the balcony hanging his junk on the rail, yelling at all the women across the quad who were on their second floor balcony. I'll post that goofy bastards video later.

I'm sorry I missed tube top, and never met itbeatsforjew (not that I know of). His name came up in conversation with the dorks I hung with.

What Whippy said  :thumbsup: Elizabeth, Juan and David our amazingly friendly and helpful servers- would love to see them annually! Late night beach hangouts with Chupacabra's and Kevin's humor.  :beer:

Don't forget Minerva!

MMJ Night 1 – Heartbreakin' Man, Evelyn, Master Plan, Steam Engine

MMJ Night 1 – I Know You Rider, Brown Eyed Women, Cobra, Tyrone, Easy Morning Rebel, Mahgeetah

MMJ Night 2 - EVERY FUCKING SECOND OF IT

MMJ Night 3 – Carried Away, O, Strangulation, end of Run Thru, Dondante, Don't Do It, Anytime

Mariachi El Bronx absolutely killing it, and ItBeats4Jew playing maracas along to their set

Flaming Lips covering Heroes (David Bowie)

I was feeling it!  I'm ready to go on Mariachi El Bronx tour.

My favorite memory was the in front of the soundboard crew and sprinting up there from our balcony w/ my family when O started to share that moment with everyone. 
what Madonna said really helped

Evil Urges In SoCal

Sitting on our balcony and seeing a guy wearing a speedo and a Hawaiian shirt while eating spaghetti out of a fedora...... :thumbsup:

The way the band feed off the absolute ecstatic fans when they started OBH. They then proceeded to go crazy. Can't wait for it to come out downloadable. It'll then replace my Okonokos OBH as my new fav.

Carl stole the week, imho

The band seemed to genuinely enjoy their shows, which made this week mean all the more.

So glad we went...it will be hard to top...but I'll keep going to see if they can  :grin:

1) Within an hour of getting there I heard Golden during sound check. Now,I have heard Golden a lot, but something about it was so spiritual that it is hard to describe.

2) The transition from War Begun > IWSYS

3) Dondante was mind blowing! It took the night to another stratosphere. Watching it again brought years of joy to my face. Honestly, all 3 nights were collectively as good of a musical experience as I've ever experienced. For me, only RR 2012 rivals it.

4) the people were awesome. My wife and I hung out with some great people. That is what really separated this event from anything else that I've experienced.

5) The covers...mainly the ones I hadn't heard - Harvest Moon, All Night Long. All Night Long was off the hook!

6) "The Speedo Guy"...After the Lips set the crowd had cleared out and my wife noticed him running around and didn't want to pass up the photo op. The dude was absolutely loving life. As he made his way over it wasn't hard to notice something hanging out of his speedo. That's when I absolutely lost it. Only a few in our group noticed. My wife and another guy in the pic had no idea. By far the funniest thing that I saw all week.

There are so many awesome memories that could spend a week writing about them. I can't wait until next year:)

I agree!

I also agree. I think it was during "I Know You Rider", but when Carl and Bob Weir were facing off, having a guitar solo duel. Not only was my mouth agape, but Two Tone as well. I watched his face the whole time. His Jaw was to the floor and Bob looked over and he mouthed the words "Holy Fucking Shit" to Bob & Carl. Bob smiled and nodded his way.

Carl was out of control. I just feel the band was in sync on a level I have never thought possible
Mona Lisa must'a had the highway blues, you can tell by the way she smiles.

Yes!!! That was an awesome moment... Gave me goosebumps again just now thinking about it! Carl looked as happy as ever and it was great to catch that!

sitting early on the rail night one just so stoked to be there after a day at the pool. In JANUARY!
water aerobics with crazylove and pennylane.
crazy birds trying to get my fries!
fantastic massages, two in one day once.
Being a glutton and a drunk. Feeding the tapeworm in my belly.
Friends calling to us from their balcony or down the hall.
Trays of drinks constantly through the crowd.
Really could not have been much better. Still have a perma grin, even in the cold and snow.
What would have made it better was if more of my pals could have been there. You know who you are!
Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill.

couple of random thoughts on OBH:
-who stole Bo's hat on night one? He looked like the guy who cooked our dinner at Zen :grin:
-was very surprised how much I missed the bears on stage. weird but true
-many have said it, Carl fucking light it up all week. love him and carried away
-merch gone after one day, lesson learned
-black metal, holy shit that was fun
-biggest buzz was The Lips/dance part, go figure.
-enjoyed the bobby tunes, that was different
-mclovin photo bombing us!
-who was the dude standing behind Patrick for the last couple of tunes on last night?
-so much fun, great people, awesome music. can't wait to do it again
