I'm starting this because I'm sure there's other people out there looking for someone, I am looking for one person in particular - difficulty - I don't know his name but he's EXTREMELY easy to identify.
Had a curly mustache, in front for Loretta Lynn, was dressed in a denim American Flag shirt, wore a pen knife and a cross around his neck, curly short blonde hair about 5'8". Could do a trick with his mouth that made the girl next to me claim she was going to get sick. Had a band around his arm that wasn't GA and mentioned to a girl next to him that he loved playing the banjo for a living.
This guy was one of the coolest people I have ever met and we had so much fun but the crowd surge broke us up before I got a name...
To the 18 year old filipino girl who I talked to sitting down a bit back from that tent during STS9, and who had a nose ring and a bit of a raspy voice because you needed water and who goes to art school in PA. I am the good looking white guy who asked you -- out of the blue after talking to you for like maybe 10 minutes -- if you wanted to make out. This made you giggle.
I got up to get a beer, and some dude with a glow-stick-on-a-string* had apparently forced you out of your real estate. I had a water for you. But I never saw you again.
*Glowsticking on a string is stupid. There is no skill in involved whatsoever, and it takes up unnecessary space. Learn to glowstick with the glowstick in your hands and make it look cool. Don't really on a string because you're not coordinated.
To the beautiful brunette from Jacksonville, FL with the amazing blue/gray eyes I talked to sitting in the shade beside the body paint booth: Even though my offer to you and your sister to sleep at my house fell flat, I should have been man enough to at least asked for your phone number. I'm apparently a basket case when it comes to women but isn't that what you want: a project man? You could teach me so much! When my children ask me why I married their mother, I will tell them because I could never find that beautiful brunette from Jacksonville, FL with the amazing blue/gray eyes I talked to sitting in the shade beside the body paint booth.

To the Michigan girls who work in a restaurant together and were crammed next to me at the Girl Talk concert: thanks for making that show the best dance party I've ever been to! I was the guy with the checkered scarf around my neck. Hope to see you next year!
I met a few volunteers while I was working the West toll booth on Thursday and a few volunteers at the VIP toll booth. I gave you guys my name and number to work with me next year, so please drop me a line here if you lost the piece of paper I gave you. My name is Shane.
Oh and to my Canadian friend Brian (I believe) I met during MMJ, I'm waiting to hear from you as well. If you lost my information, get a hold of me here.

to the girl who worked at the crab cake place in centeroo, we met you friday nite. You are AMAZING haha i was the girl dressed up as the fox. although i had hoped to run into u again at some point i didnt get the pleasure of doing so. "thanks for being so cool"
The guy at Freelance Whales with the little black book, interviewing people. I can't remember your name, but I know it was unique. We joked with you that all we do in Minnesota is go ice fishing.. you asked if I wanted to mosh to freelance whales, and that made me laugh. You tried to get me to go barefoot in the sand.. I gave you a lemon that I found on the ground.
My sister later told me that you said you have a rare form of cancer and that's what the black book was about. I'd love to talk to you some more. I think you wrote down my name. I hope you contact me.

Oh man...Wish I'd thought of this thread first. Pure gold.
You had commie energy in the old school mimeo style: earnest and armpit hair and ready to take down a wall. You and your comrades were kicking it on an old poncho and passing around an iPhone, maybe pictures of your art car or your Angry Birds high score. I liked the McCain/Palin t-shirt you were wearing ironically and the way you so expertly rolled a joint with two fingers. I didn’t even mind that you might have been wearing Tevas; your eyes were a striking Matthew McConaughey gold. We shared glances a couple of times: I was swinging a child, not mine, at the Which Stage. I might have ten years on you, but most people think I’m still in my final years of grad school: short blue hair, brown saucer eyes and frizzy legs. I was unironically wearing a PETA shirt and have no phone, my only hold on mutiny. If we met, if we were to walk to Azteca in the Castro, I’d share a veggie burrito with you. Hippie, will you be mine?
karosko... that might be downright the cutest missed connection i've ever seen...
so i'll write one too..
To Janessa, the awesome Indio merch, who called me "Lone Ranger" from a distance and hung out with me all through Sleigh Bells. Thanks for the brews, and my dreads thank ya for the playtime. Wish I knew which Indio you were at (on Shakedown or Centeroo)
and a shout out to the MMJ/Arcade Fire front and pit folks (Big Jack, Heather, and ???) - totally made my night and made me feel the Roo spirit when I was lil murky. You all deserve a beer if I see ya at a future Roo
and one more to the lady hippie couple at the STS9 sunrise I gave a lighter and chilled with, beautiful spirits, one with lovely dreads another with a simple sunhat. You saw me on shakedown walking back through shakedown afterwards and called me a beautiful person. Right back atcha
All we have to believe with is our senses, the tools we use to perceive the world: our sight, our touch, our memory. If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted. And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end.

To the ever-so-sweet, short, blonde, early 20's girl (who's name escapes me) that I met up with laying on the grass by the Silent Disco at some point after Arcade Fire and we went back to your RV (which I remember you said you had won tickets/RV rental for Roo in some sort of contest) I was so out of it that I wasn't sure at the time and still can't be certain if we had met before that night. Please get a hold of me on here or call 517 366 9953
