Take off your dress WordPress + Cherry Fest blows toes
July 16, 2014
So as you can see I’m slowly learning how to get this webpage looking cool, with info and all that. It was a real pain in the ass when I started but now that I’ve figured out a few things I’m having a little fun with it! Finally my very own webpage, that I can update, callooh callay!
Ok, next topic, thank the lord of crappy summer festivals that Cherry Festival has finally come to an end!! Now that I live downtown, the complaining I’ve always heard from TC residents seems totally justified. Sure there’s the f-18s flying around every day forcing dogs and ptsd survivors to take an extra xanax before making a mission to the grocery store. Sure there’s the trafffic that turned a 15 mile drive to band practice into an hour and a half commute through a tourist driver minefield. But what really gets me, what really urks my burkinstocks are the touists or people who moved here recently telling me, “I don’t know why you all hate Cherry Festival, it makes the town so much money…” You understand the festival is in the begining of July right? You understand this is one of the most beautiful places in THE WORLD to visit this time of year, and your telling me if it weren’t for Cherry Festival no one would visit our little town and we’d have to all pack up and get jobs at some Grand Rapids furniture factory? Look, we grow a lot of Cherrys here, and it’s great to celebrate that, but lets make it a 3 day festival that is something to be proud of. Not a week and ahalf long tribute to the lowest lifeforms in our region. And all this, just to ensure the salaries of Cherry Festival employees can stay as bloated and apathetic as the miles of cardboard beer boxes and broken styrofoam coolers bobbing like peaches after fireworks on west bay.
