I have a hard time respecting people who take festivals so seriously. It seems like the height of self indulgent narcissism and pointless excess. Sure im glad people are out having fun, maybe even a little jealous. But with so much horrible shit happening in the world, festivals seem pretty wasteful of resources and creative energy. Not to mention you all look horrible in your dirty fun fur and other appropriated accessories. I have seen so many pictures online of festival folk lately, and every time I see them I want to gag. Gross.
