Oh and one final thing... Last night my friend, who recently broke up with his girlfriend, randomly struck up an MSN convo with me...
ME: hi hi hi
FRIEND: Hey d'you know what Kasabian's song "Club Foot" and I have in common?
ME: tell me
FRIEND: we are both single
... Well, I thought it was funny.

t in the park
Yesterday Keane signed middle-aged women's breasts, The Futureheads triumphed and Barry said he liked T because there were no "trendy scenesters", The Killers blew everyone away (again), Mike Skinner let it slip that he wants Robbie Williams-style sing-a-longs, Super Furry Animals wore spacesuits, Brandon Flowers joined New Order onstage for "Crystal", and Greenday stole the show and paid tribute to victims of the London bombings.
Today, the second day, sounds equally entertaining. Kaiser Chiefs were their usual fun selves (and good boy Ricky got a bit naughty by encouraging the ladies to flash their titties), Travis covered The Bee Gees, Kasabian rocked and called people "fuckers" (again), Ian Brown was up to the old tricks, and Foo Fighters brought the curtain down.
Wish I had been there... Maybe next year while Glasto takes a year off.

hanging in there
But yeah, Pete Doherty was my highlight because even though he looked like he didn't even know what day it was, he still managed to put on a stunningly shambolic performance. Relive the magic bitches!!! Everyone loves our Pete! Elton John likes to kiss him and even Bob Geldof's been defending Pete in between trying to save the world. Loves it.

i heart Glastonbury
My favourite post-Glasto quote was said by a Radio 1 DJ that we heard in the car on our way to London...
"I can't feel my legs and I've got a new ridiculous hat... Must be Glastonbury."
It's funny because it was so fucking true.
So here's the breakdown...
The thing about Glastonbury is that even the sponsors were awesome. I loved the goodies from The Guardian and Q Magazine and I've even come to appreciate my (free) white Make Poverty History bracelet. Presents are always good but Glastonbury presents are better.
As a sponsor The Guardian has a stellar website with lots to be discovered. They have great features including an Interpol story that makes Carlos D look like an ass and eight festival bands reviewed by other bands! Nicely done. And the Guardian Lounge turned out to be a great place to chill out, have a drink and check out really cool intimate performances like the magnificant one we saw by Emiliana Torrini.
And the folks at Q Magazine also deserve major props for their free Q Glastonbury Daily newspapers (the Saturday issue with its perfect headline was practically a collector's item)!
Anyway, check out the action day by day...

And if you still you want to get even more of a taste of what you missed...
So I guess all that's left to say is that the whole Glastonbury Festival experience made for 6 of the happiest days of my life... And, as far as I'm concerned, Glastonbury 2007 can't come soon enough...
