"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Bumbershoot Take 3

The full Bumbershoot lineup was announced this weekend and although it's still a rather disappointing year from the music standpoint the overall festival is shaping up to look pretty sweet.

First and foremost I'm thrilled to see that The Upright Citizens Brigade is going to be bringing ASSScat to the comedy festival. UCB is pretty much the bestest thing ever, and it's not often one can get out to NYC to partake in their genius. Speaking of bestest things ever the cast of VH1's Best Week Ever is coming, as is Tinkle which one can only assume is still starring David Cross. All in all the comedy side of things is looking top notch.

On the music side, there are no knock out additions, but picking up Spoon, The New Pornographers, The Thermals, and Derby helps fill out the reduced three day line-up.

Aside from the comedy and music it looks like there will be plenty of great ways to wither away the three day weekend. Between roller derby, Flatstock, John Moe, Chuck Palahniuk, art shows, the 1 Reel Film Festival, and the 826 Seattle benefit (Dave Eggers, Sarah Vowell, Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket), Stephen Merritt, John Hodgman and Jonathan Coulton) who's going to have any time to listen to music anyways?
