I hope to be proved wrong but it will be backslapping at best and nonsensicle at worst. Maybe something wonderful will appear from it, I don't know but I suspect a lot of youtube footage that will fall right into the, "See! It's just a religion really!" camp and how will that be countered? I have nothing but respect for many of the advocates and attendees, I'm positively jealous about not seeing some of the performers but is this anything at all to do with reason or rationality? I'd love to be the promoter with that line-up. Where's the money going? What are the "stars" charging? Not interested in the money really, that's not my beef, but it is being generated isn't it?

Well, evangelise in your big tent, take the money, and at least ask yourself the reasonable question please:What is the difference between this circle-jerk and a religious circle-jerk? And a big AYYY-MENNNN from the cynical fucker at the back there mah friend, mah brother or is that too reasonable and too rational a question?
