The festival seems to be doing very well considering the financial state of the country (is that too political of a statement?)

You're "obviously" stating that based on opinion.

You need some of Batman's anti-Shark repelant that he uses around the 1:05 mark. Classic stuff!

I don't think a couple of butthurt hippies on the intertrons represent even 1% of the Vibes attendance. So, no.

It may come as a shock to some, but there are thousands of fans who buy tickets, attend and rage GOTV, and could care less if this or any other message board exists.

Vibes wasnt even the best-attended festival this year, nor did it meet previous profit-levals from former years.

People were less happy with the lineup last year, as evidenced by online chatter in other forums.

Im sad about all this, it used to be a great place, now its hardly what it once was...especially when I read the Family Forum

I often wonder, with so many wonderful festivals all around, why people continue to return to Gathering of the Vibes.

Then I saw, people really weren't. Its sad but true.

Wait, are you talking about the festival or the message board? The festival seems to be doing just fine, this place is a shadow of its former self. Over the past 10 years, there has been ebb and flow, people come and people leave from here, interest waxes and wanes, but the overall trends for this community online is decline. Real world relationships that were started here seem to be going strong, and the festival itself seems to be doing something right in terms of bringing in attendance, but this place is kind of boring and really isn't that much fun at all anymore.

By attacking the Monarchy is not the way to get more freedoms. The peasants and the loyal subjects can only voice their greviences to the Kings Hand and hope if they themselves can not change the law of the land they will tell the king of people's wishes. A good king wants to make his subjects happy.

Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you. If I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.
