I'm sure it's not just me that thinks having a main stage announcer at all is a complete waste of time. When someone sticks up a 30ft wide banner that says "Nile", I don't need someone to walk on and scream at me to let me know that Nile are about to play.

So, I have a packet of delicious chocolate covered raisin's sat on my desk at work, which I can't stop eating, but I'm deathly aware that it makes a lot of noise whenever I take a handful, which I keep doing because they're delicious, and I'm fairly sure everyone else that isn't making loud chocolate covered raisin noise thinks I'm a massive fat bastard.
Yes. I probably love Opeth more than you do.

True, but they tend to announce who's coming on next straight after the previous band have finished. So people who aren't too sure of the running order can plan to stick around, got to tent and/or drink several beers

They just need a decent one. The current tit who does it just sounds like Barry Scott of Cilit Bang fame.

Which one the old one or Simon C? Simon is OK but the other one gets really cringey... then again it is Bloodstock. Cheesy and crusty.

Is Simon the one with the raspy voice?
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

The site manager has handed in his notice, leaving other people having to unravel the mess that he's made - he was the company's Golden Boy who could talk the talk, but the more experienced could see where he was going wrong, but they were the 'old guard' so were ignored.

Typo's in album names on Spotify are really annoying for Last FM.

A load of mates are going to Maiden @ the O2 and I cannot make it as I have a family thing to attend (and no spare parts to sell ):(
