@ZackTeibloom A music festival is a wet dream for the easily distracted. It’s why Andy will constantly “A.D.D. out” as he calls it. It’s easy to get caught up in thoughts like, “Hey girl, it’s Ryan Gosling on the stage with YACHT! Why’s he brushing that girl off when she just wants a hug? Oh, he’s making a movie! Whoa, now he’s hanging out with Wayne Coyne while wrestling Odd Future in the skate park!” Only some of that happened, but it was the usual fest full of fun distractions.
Fun Fun Fun brought back the skate park, wrestling ring and mechanical bull, and I found myself stopping by to catch an entertaining video of each one. As much as I loved watching the bands and comedy, sometimes a back flip on a bike, a flying elbow in the ring and a little girl struggling to say on a mechanical bull is too entertaining not to watch.
Little Girl on Mechanical Bull
As far as I can tell, Mechanical Bulls were solely invented so overly sexual women can show you how they will ride you like a cowgirl. How sexy is that! Sigh. I won’t pretend I didn’t have fun riding one last year and catching a football with one hand, but for the most part, I’ve found them entirely unnecessary. Then Caitlin and I walked by this adorable little girl riding for the first time. She doesn’t sit on the bull, she lays across it and clings on for dear life. Pretty darn cute.
Wrestling Elbow Drops
I was always one of the kids who made fun of kids who liked wrestling because it was fake. Sure, the wrestlers may be fighting with planned moves and a pre-determined outcome, but some things you can’t fake. They’re actually beastly human beings flying around, even if all their hits aren’t hitting. If anything, I got more respect for the wrestlers on TV after seeing how difficult it was to pull off an entertaining match in person. This was the best big I caught. Some actual talent in here.
Backflip on bike
I didn’t catch any cool tricks on the half pipe, but the bike jump was impressive. I would have been terrified to go down this thing at all, let alone attempt a backflip in the dark while two riders were right in front of me. It even lets me forgive the bikers who decided to watch shows in the middle of the festival while still on their bike. Not cool. This flip was, though.
