Busker performs his version of John Lennon’s “Imagine”

I love me some street musician performances. This busker gave the commuters chances to sing along though he picked up the crowd’s slack just fine. A very nice version of John Lennonir?source=bk&t=312land 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=a48f407d3ae63af5a4f186df016a1d19& cb=1507585568678 - Busker performs his version of John Lennon's "Imagine"‘s “Imagineir?source=bk&t=312land 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=caaed2e9271674dc67319e6b990c0379& cb=1507585597197 - Busker performs his version of John Lennon's "Imagine"” on the Chicago Blue Line subway ir?source=bk&t=312land 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=a5da5bb4bd18172b2ed8bc5d2a10c562& cb=1507585633371 - Busker performs his version of John Lennon's "Imagine"platform.  Something about the trust involved in being blind and having the money bucket out on the L platform adds a bit to the feeling of the song.

You’ll want to watch through to the end. This guy knows how to use the moving trains to his advantage!

After our usual easy EL train ride to Lolla, it was a great start to the festing with no waiting in line to get in. The North entrance is always a nice secret-squirrel-ish way to go.  After a little bit of morning rain, the  weather was just cool enough with a sky that was just overcast enough.

As we made our way south, this dude seemed disappointed in the lack of sun. He was all like “Dude. I wore this big-ass hat to shade my head from the sun and what not for nothing”.  And his friend was all like “But why long sleeves and pants?”

I was lucky enough to get on a boat with a group of friends today so a couple of pictures seemed in order before accidentally belly-flopping out of a bad back-flip.
