Trainwreck: Woodstock '99 (Netflix)

Watched this limited series last night. Literally, a shit show. I hardly remembered this event. Maybe because I was too busy building my home after a catastrophic fire back in 1999.

Compared with 1969 Woodstock, this was like totally opposite-world. The organizers were in total denial of what was happening. No real security, ridiculous price gouging ($4.00 bottled water -> $12, during the last day), general water contamination with fecal matter. and music designed to incite the crowd. What a mess.

2. The series is very good.

They really focus on the cause of this disaster, GREED.

I grew up in Rome, NY. I had already left the area many years before, thank goodness.

I only wish they had a little more input from the locals in this documentary. The mayor is really the only one they interviewed. He was considered a stooge by most of the locals.

3. It's not just greed.

Bottles of water could have been $2.00 and I think the outcome would have been the same. When your music is anarchy, are you surprised that anarchists are attracted?

4. You know, Lang and his partner tried.

They wanted to recreate the '69 experience....but the music and attitudes had morphed. Music begot anarchy.
