    Shakespeare describe woodstock best:

    Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing

    I guess goat ropping can be seen as a folk art.

    Can you be a practioner of post modern art and a Mormon in good standing too?

    Dude, it's held in Salt Lake City, what else would you expect?

    Woodstock--in Salt Lake City? It takes a certain mindset to even imagine such an oxymoron.

    I really would like to know what this guy means by likening the festival to Woodstock?
    Perhaps he is referring to the Charlie Brown bird character.

    The Arts Festival is fabulous! Great music. Great art to buy. Great food. Wonderful people. It's not an 'all kids' event. If you're not into it, stay home. If you don't understand Woodstock and the Arts Festival, if I were you I'd shut up so my ignorance wouldn't be out there for others to know of.

    I would like to thank Dave LeFevre for staying away. Anyone who is that pent up can only be a wet blanket.

    Maybe we can put on our "Leave it to Beaver" outfits and have punch and cookies at the festival.

    I am tired of everything in Utah being geared to 5 year olds.

    Woodstock had a slogan:
    "three days of peace and music".

    This alone is something one would never expect the average Pleasantville Utahn to get.
    Throw in the anti-Vietnam and civil rights movement,
    and you can completely forget about any possibility of those same Utahns understanding anything about what the event was about.

    The only thing Woodstock proved is that hippies like to wallow in mud.

    Way to judge people solely on how they look. Its a bunch of artsy people what did you expect.

  • Conservatives freaking out

    Shades of the late 60's with the neocons freaking out at all the dirty, commie, hippies preaching nasty, liberal ideologies such as peace and love.
    Conservatives are in dire straits of needing an enema.

    I was there yesterday. I saw lots of nice art. Nothing looked very much like Woodstock. No stoned, naked people dancing or anything.

    Actually, Woodstock was a turning point in our culture. People realized how helpless they really are and took matters into their own hands and forced social change.

    The 24th of July Parade is coming. There is something for everyone in Utah.
