calgary folk festival full line-up I am quite excited!!!!!

So I've snatched myself a gig as Record Tent-er at the Calgary folk fest this year. I am more than excited for that, but yesterday the full lineup was announced, and I'm about as excited as possible. There are some people on there that I've really wanted to see in concert, I really hope I'm able to catch them. Here is a list of artists I would love to catch:

-Rufus Wainwright, just released an album, has a few great albums in the past. I have had a major crush on this guy and his voice since I first heard him.
-Neko Case
-Final Fantasy
-Hawksley Workman
-The Sadies
-and much, much more including some that I don't know, but I'm very interested in hearing if I get a chance.

Now I totally need to do some Record Tent homework.

Speaking of the new Rufus Wainwright album, there is a song called "Tulsa" about Rufus meeting The Killers lead man, Brandon Flowers in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In the song he mentions both "a fat guy in a green t-shirt" and a "poor girl waiting in the rain to meet him". Oddly enough, both the fat guy in green and the poor girl turned up with picture of them and Rufus in Tulsa, Oklahoma on the Rufus Wainwright forum. The magic of the internet, I doubt they're disappointed about being immortalized in a Rufus Wainwright song.

fat guy in green t-shirt.

I was telling Barb B how jealous I am of your guys' line-up... and the fact that you get to work in the record tent. In Edmonton most minors have to work on trash pick-up :P
Hawksley Workman puts on an awesome show! Like yours on Wainwright, I've had a crush on Workman since Folk Fest last year. His voice is amazing... I know you'll have a great time!

Yeah, I was so glad they trusted me enough to let me work there, reading the list of recommended jobs for minors was no fun. I was not exactly pumped for "Ice" or "Children's Area".

I've heard Hawksley's great live! I hope I get a chance to see him.

Man, this is a great line-up!! Do you know exactly where you will be working yet? I think you're up for the challenge of Ice...stay clear of the children's area, if you can.

Hawksley does put on an amazing show! And I am really excited about finally seeing Neko and Rufus. The record tent is going to be so much fun, isn't it?

What a great story about Rufus and the fans!

Definitely! I'm really glad Calgary is able to pull some good acts in. I'm working at the Record Tent, like Barbara. it should be a lot of fun. A pen of small, hot, anxious children does not exactly appeal to me as much.

Barbara, I'm so excited about working the Record Tent! I can't wait...

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
