I obviously snagged this from the Vibes facebook page, but I hope you're all as excited as I am that we're nearly in the single digits for the countdown! Well, technically, we're already 9 days and a few hours away but still!

Fun fact: another one of the operations interns and I took these signs out of storage [and a heap of rats' nests] and sorted them appropriately, so I'm just so pleased at how organized this pile looks. My personal favorite is one among the "Ferris wheel" signs that says "Save Ferris."

Whoooo! Can't wait to meet up with my fellow boardies! :bananasdance3:

you should take one of each of those signs and put them on a signpost with the arrows pointing straight up into the sky :mrgreen: (you probably shouldn't do that :lol:)

for Bridgeport, never follow the signs off the highway, use the printed directions.

maybe even do a virtual drive by on google maps before you leave.

Indeed, I am a college student! I actually just completed my minimum amount of hours for 3 credits as of 2 pm, so I think that is already setting me in the right direction. Hopefully my boss thinks I've done a good job as well...

I would have thought a town like B'port might have enough of the real kind :coffee:

But when an official GOTV sign at the end of the highway exit ramp points to the left instead of to the right, even with directions it's a little bit confusing... just sayin'

I remember calling the hotline last year to let them know that was there :)

And one of the tour managers I was hanging out with on Friday referred to me as a "little girl."

If you do get less than an A, you can use your degree to build an empire and buy the fest and than in turn either fire the boss that gave you less than an A or have them work for you to get you coffee everyday, running errands, etc. ;) Think big

INDEED.


ashley, will this be your first vibes?

Yes, Dee, this is my first Vibes! I probably would not have come if not for the internship, I will be honest - I'm a college student, my budget is a bit restricted. However, I am learning SO much while working in the office and cannot wait for the festival to begin so I can see it all come together finally; I've heard a lot about it since I live so close to Bridgeport [plus Ken came to speak at my school in February, AND there are two other kids in my program at school who worked with Vibes last year that raved about it]. My taste in music is...different than the majority of Vibes goers, to say the least. Occifer Boland knows what I'm talking about haha I am missing out on volunteering at the NY/CT dates of Warped Tour as I normally do each summer to be at Vibes but it is rather exciting to be working with such a famous festival. Plus, everyone who attends, Boardie or not, puts a big emphasis on Vibes being a community and even a family, which is something that as an avid concert/show goer, I value above all. I could ramble about this for hours....yeah.

i'm feeling the answer is no, dee.. we're totally not cool enough for her... j/k


Oh shut your face! You guys have been nothing but kind to me and I can't wait to meet up with all you Boardies! <3 <3

1. That's actually kind of ironic because some of my best friends at school are Delta Chi [different frat but hey close enough to be ironic, right?]

I love them, and I love my new WCAR Stay Positive tank [featured in the intern arrow sign photo above], and I especially love their fan base. They tossed a drum stick in the crowd at the end of their set and a bunch of kids fought for it, including myself, but some dude managed to get it. I think I said "good job" or something like that, and he insisted that I have it instead. I felt really bad but I took it, he was really nice! Another kid came up to me 5 minutes later and offered me $10 for the drum stick, but I told him I'd be happy if he just bought me a water - I have a nice collection of drum sticks from various shows at home, anyway. I just love them and their music and I saw them both times at Bamboozle and it was SO WORTH IT.

wow, you guys have activated my inner scene kid, sorry for the ramble haha
