I have a serious case of envy sparked this week by a conversation with friend and former UK housemate Nick about our various plans for the next few weeks.
I’m flying to Belgium for a festival, he said. He then proceeded to rattle off the most impressive music line-up I’ve ever heard. I think I blanked out somewhere in the middle but I distinctly remember Air, Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight, Snow Patrol, Cold War Kids, The Kooks, Kings of Leon, Bjork and The Bravery (and I’m not even mentioning Pearl Jam, Metallica, Muse, The Chemical Brothers or Faithless because I’m not a huge fan).
What about you? He asked me.
The best I could come up with was that Xzibit is coming to Eurobar. Jesus.
