"Really though, who actually gives a fuck about an Oxford Comma?"


The sweet sounds of Phish coming from the Southernmost Falafel stand upon our exit. Made me think for a second I wanted some falafel. Just for a second, though.


"I don't drink beer, beer is for ugly girls"

-- some ugly girl on our walk in


After high-fiving someone who was riding on someone's shoulders:
Guy 1: You know what would have happened if she had fallen off his shoulders after that? It would have been...
Guy 1 + Guy 2: Death by high-five!
Guy 1: We should all go that way.


"Wu-Tang Clan? That's where Cee Lo got his start, right?"

"I mean, I love the Fugees..."
-- some girl obviously hesitant to see Lauryn Hill


"Bill Balleza!!!" said some guy to Channel 11 newscaster Ron Trevino as he walked by. "We all look the same," Trevino retorted with a smile.


"Hey, you've got cheese on your mouth"


"Free Wu-Tang is better than expensive Wu-Tang"

-- some guy in reference to the 100 or so people perched on the hill outside the gate


Cop screams in her best cookie monster voice, "I gotta peeeeee!!" into the Federal Reserve gate security box. Gate opens.


"Eh, I don't think there's nothin' in that anyway"

-- Lady working the FPSF bag check as she casually gazed into my purse, which could have literally had anything in it and would have gone unnoticed


"Why would they make JUPITER the SMALLEST stage??"

-- random guy who came up to debate astronomy


In the middle of an argument about where to meet some girls:
Bro 1 (grabbing Bro 2's shoulders and looking at him square in the face): Dude! Be a team player!


"You are familiar with Gambino, yes? How would you describe to her?"

"Your stadium is very beautiful!"
-- Jack White


Man to friends:
"So, do you think today will be cheaper than yesterday?"
Friends, unanimously: "No."


FLOSStradamus: "Any time we play this, we make everyone get down low!"
Man next to me, non-ironically: "Oh nooooo. I do NOT have the quads for that."


"What time does Passion Pit go on?"

-- a really confused guy you could say showed up late


"OHMIGOD it smells like pot"

-- Captain Obvious
