I would like to tell you that Camp a Low Hum '09 was plain lovely.
It included: hot weather, a swimming lagoon, lagoon parties, singing cicadas (everywhere), grass to lounge on, wine, daisy chains, the kinds of feelings that happen on summer beaches, fizzy beer, dancing, making new friends, goody gum drops ice-cream, hedonism, being silly and meeting some polite boys (this is not common in the city I come from)
The best band? The Crayon Fields.
I may have come to this decision pre-camp. But, they really were my favourite. Many were great. However, The Crayon Fields make such dreamy, demure music. It's the sort of music that can put you into a trance and maybe even keep you there forever. If I were feeling bold enough, I would have told them how brilliant they are. I take it that they were probably equally as shy, if not more. Perhaps the conversation would have gone nowhere.
I purchased their 7" of 'Mirror Ball' It's been warming up the living room a lot.
My favourite lines?
'Would it flatter you to know that mostly it's you who makes me so slow? You say I look so calm. Really I'm not, I'm not. But I think I want to be from now on'
'I look at you and suddenly I'm a virgin in a dancehall'

I can't get sick of these songs. I've even tried. It's been months now. The Pictures and The Posers is especially nice. These songs are entertaining me whilst I am sitting around in uncertainty about everything.
