Sasquatch 2012

This Memorial Day weekend I experienced the Sasquatch 2012 music festival at the Gorge Amphitheater near Quincy, Washington. What a stellar event! I had such an amazing weekend with some truly amazing people. I experienced so many new things, lost something that broke my heart, and enjoyed some fantastic music.

I’m so glad I took the opportunity to come to this event. I went up with my girlfriend Cassie and my friend Dan and went back with my friends Dan and Cassie, and spent most of the weekend with them and a number of new and old friends.

This weekend definitely gave me a lot to think about and also gave me a good chance to think about things that were bothering me. Hopefully I can resolve a number of issues i’m dealing with over the next few weeks, especially with Florida coming up on the 17th of June.

Here’s a listing of some of the performers I had the chance to see live:

  • Tenacious D
  • Beck
  • Jack White
  • Bon Iver
  • Pretty Lights
  • The Shins
  • Beirut
  • Girl Talk
  • The Head & The Heart
  • Feist
  • Silversun Pickups
  • Metric
  • Nero
  • Wolfgang Gartner
  • Of Monsters and Men
  • Little Dragon
  • tUnE-yArDs
  • Beats Antique
  • fun.
  • Little People
  • Alabama Shakes
  • Gardens & Villa
  • Sol
  • John C. Reilly
  • and many many more

I had such a great time that i’m definitely planning to go next year if things line up to do so.

Hopefully you can go and enjoy it too!

I’ve never gone through the loss of a pet as a child. We had pets, but I was never aware of them “passing” and none that were so close to me in the last few years in my life before they passed.  I did have a dog, Malakai, an amazing goofy dog who was hit by a car while being looked after in California, but at the time I was no longer his owner…but still extremely sad.

Remmy passed away this morning after she stopped eating and began to stop moving as much. I had to water her by hand last night as I propped her mouth open and this morning as I was freaking out trying to figure out what to do, she stopped moving completely.

Remmy, originally Remmington, lived a good life with lots of people friends.  She was at first thought to be a boy, but in the last couple months I found out he was actually a she.

She sadly didn’t have any other reptiles to hang out with, but definitely made me and many others happy.  I loved that lizard and was so glad to share the last almost three years with her.  Hopefully those who have been able to meet her will remember her for being a happy and loving (as much as a scaly lizard could be) pet.

Remmy, you’ll truly be missed!

Love you,
