As I'm staring through this fire, it's too late to make you mine, so far from where we started, so far from what we wanted.
I go to carnivals for three reasons.
1.) Going on rides that make people with weak stomachs puke.
2.) Eating deep fried twinkles until I feel like I'm going to puke.
3.) Checking out the sweet music performances that end up on the weeklong setlist.
This year, as usual, I didn't break any traditions. It's always bittersweet when Stampede ends, real life usually isn't quiiiite as fun as Stampede life - however if I ate one more mini donut, my butt was going to start resembling one.
First interview of Stampede was State of Shock.
I met the band years ago when they were opening for a friends band, they were really sweet then, and just as sweet when I met them this time. I've always dug and respected their catchy rock music, and they just released a new album so I figured, what better time to talk to them about that.. and deep fried koolaid - which we later found out yes, does exist, and no, we couldn't find it anywhere at stampede... even though me & Jen dedicated half a day to looking for it.
The sun was super bright that day, which means I turn into a ghost halfway through the interview, and the weird music in the background was courtesy of some opera singer wailing away, but the guys gave a great interview nonetheless, can't wait to see what this group does next!
