I love it when younger girls look up to older girls as role models and heroes. I love it when older girls enthusiastically support and protect younger girls. I love it when girls are psyched about the skills and accomplishments of other girls, I love it when girls compliment each other, take care of each other, encourage each other. I love it when girls realize how awesome and important they are. I love it when girls are fuckin’ pumped about girls.
I went to fuck yeah festival this past weekend in los angeles and it was fucking AWESOME. at the festival, i had the chance to see some of my favorite artists and had the opportunity to flock among fellow music fanatics and fun people. Saturday was a little tedious, as the lines were incredibly long and it took quite a while to get in due to people cutting in line (shaking fist), but i got to see connan mockasin, slint, albert hammond jr., little dragon, todd terje, CARIBOU, tycho, some of interpol, grimes, and dj Harvey that day! Sunday was definitely better, as i arrived earlier and got to see les sins, mac demarco, thundercat, built to spill, darkside (featured above), blood brothers, jamie xx and flying lotus (also featured above). it was a wicked fun time.
besides enjoying some fantastic musical acts, i got to munch on my favorite festival food- arepas with mozzarella. in case you’re wondering what that is, it is essentially a sweet corncake with mozzarella in the middle. i topped off my beloved arepas (yes, i enjoyed the treat about four times throughout the span of two days) with a gratuitous amount of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. i hate waiting a year to experience the magic of the arepas, so i’m going to have to find a restaurant that serves up those bad boys!
this is what it looks like:
