I thought the burritos were much better this year. Was a bit disappointed with the nachos though - no effort to melt the cheese! The chilli that I had on top was lovely though so I'll let them off.

The paella was definitely a bit bland but I found it weirdly comforting.

The paella was lacking of salt, if you put a good amount of salt on it it was nice.
Burritos was better last year to me, but these ones were nice too.
Gopal is always very good.
The hamburger at carnival of food was good if you weren't really hungry but wanted a sort of snack. I've been told the hot dog was awful, but I didn't taste it.
Ice cream was very very good! Unfortunately a lot of flavours ran out too soon.
Real ales and real cider: best of the best.

The fajitas were rather nice, probably the best thing I had this year. The chilli at Cafe Ooh La La was good as well, but flippin' expensive (I had it after queueing for five minutes to find they'd run out of halloumi for the veggie fish & chips).

Is there any consensus on which cider is best? Poets Pippin all the way for me, but I think I saw more people with Cheddar Valley. Or maybe that's just the, er, interesting colour standing out more.

I'm gonna stick up for the burrito place. The two I had were really, really good.

I had three and they were faultless, not the best burritos I've ever had but they were tasty and they filled me up- good honest burritos

I've had burritos in the past which were meant to be super fancy and 'best burritos ever' and, boy howdy, did they do a number on my innards

these burritos went down great, stayed down, did not attempt to escape the digestive process like a speeding galloping snorting angry mare of explosive matter

in that respect, well done

a little more finesse in the making, not running out of tortillas way too early and real guacamole instead of what look like squirty fluorescent paste and I'd happily eat their again next year (if there is a next year)

the burrito i had was alright; not mindblowing but tasty, which was fine

gopal's took the prize for me. although it turned out i'm a far messier eater than i'd imagined - curry-stained fingers. RAD.

i thought the ice-cream stand was a bit naff. took them bloody ages to get your order, for no discernible reason, and when it finally arrived the ice-cream had melted so you were basically eating slightly chilled dairy goop, rather than the frozen, tantalising delight you'd anticipated

and by you, i mean i

obviously

anyway, wasn't the rest of it amazing?

They were both amazing, but I prefer Cheddar Valley because it's really something you can have almost only at Indietracks, while Poets Pippin was more traditional like, was something you could easily find somewhere else too. I mean the style, not the cider itself.

I think Gopal's have been slightly less messy to eat in past years. They used to come with a poppadom rather than a chapati and I think the plates were bigger and sturdier. Also, the combo use to come with mango chutney and a samosa, although I may have dreamt that (it is the kind of thing I'd dream about).

My other meal of the weekend was a fajita from the the burrito place. I enjoyed it. Four stars.

In retrospect, I probably could have managed to fit in more than two meals over three days.

The chips and beans at johnsons buffet takes the prize. No question.

You wouldn't have had these bourgeois problems if you'd simply stuck with Carnival of Food. A fiesta of cheap meat.

I have it on good authority that a notable frontman was spotted trying to buy a sausage without the bun from Carnival Of Food and eventually ended up with a unique double-decker hot dog.

On Monday night, my flight home is delayed at Stansted Airport, and I’m just sitting around, reading, and listening to my MP3-player. It’s pouring down outside, but in the distance the sun comes through. Then something magical happens: I look up, out the window, and see this. At that same moment my ears are fed these words as sung by The Carpenters:
stansted rainbow.JPG
“Day after day, I must face a world of strangers
Where I don't belong, I'm not that strong
It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to
Who will always care, you're always there

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

So many times when the city seems to be
Without a friendly face, a lonely place
It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you
And you'll always smile, it's all worthwhile”


I love it when everything comes together like that.

“…it’s all worthwile.”

Thank you, Team Indietracks!

The end of the disco on the last night was quite surreal, but quite brilliant! Dancing security guards and bugle playing barmen are a must for next year!

I'd decided it was going to be my last Indietracks . . . but then it turned out to be my best Indietracks in years so now it might not be.

YAY! . . .
Martha and surprise Onsind in one weekend. (not really such a surprise considering.)
Fever Dream
Good Grief
Lardpony
Milky Wimpshake Being thankful for wearing large sunglasses when they played True Love Will Find You in the End. *sniff*
All sorts of Owls
Wonderful evil deep fried halloumi
Camping at Fawlty Towers
Someone like me Djing at the campsite disco? An amazing time! (see indietracks disco thread)
And . . . asking for 10 year old Ralph's autograph after he'd been on the stage with Helen Love and him writing a Very Rude Word on my arm was one of the funniest moments in my life ever. Equally as funny was his mum's face when she saw it.

NOOO! . . .
Not being allowed to actually hold an owl
Wanting to tell people that I really like their bands but feeling a bit foolish
Missing bands I wanted to see in the church
Not playing K-Hole by British Sea Power at the campsite disco
Forgetting to go to the museum - again

Indietracks was a week ago . . . I'm still recovering . . . I may be back next year . . . :)

She's only got herself to blame for such behaviour!
