Fest Report

the first ever asian rustfest took place in tel aviv on the night of July 8th. the following Rusties were in attendance:

  1. Yoni Tall White Mansion Molad
  2. Ehud Powder Freedman
  3. Gil Golany
  4. Gil's friend Dov
  5. Michal Zionov
  6. Aaron mood code Lieber
  7. and I brought along the mood codette, Rachel Lieber.
after thanking the heavens that the bar served Corona (so i could stop drinking the local stuff) I joined the group in discussing:
  • Neil Young (you knew that one was coming)
  • Eric Clapton
  • The Rolling Stones
  • the Israeli Government
  • Lighnin' Hopkins
  • why neil young is never on the radio in america
  • the spice girls
  • the american tax structure after 1981 (don't ask)
  • muddy waters
  • the shortcomings of CSN
  • Willie Dixon
and about a thousand other blues musicians who i knew one song each from and so i could follow along with the conversation ;)

I personally had a great time meeting some of the israeli rusties and I also enjoyed roaming around the country for two weeks. and if anyone needs trans i saw it on sale for 39 shekels ($11). I can give you the location of the store for the next time you're passing through :)

I'm sorry I can't recall more of the rustfest happenings, how about some help from the others in attendance? at any rate, thanks to everyone for coming and i hope to hang out with you all again next summer if i can find some way to get back into the country for a language course (or tank commander's course)

at this point i open the floor to israeli rusties who want to flame me in case i insulted their nation/nation's musical taste/favorite color/etc.

i honestly can't remember - damn those coronas were good!
