HBC Fest: The Beauty of Hatred

by Me.

The HBC Fest, which apparently stands for Hae-bang-chon (how creative), is being unofficially renamed by me as the Hardly Bothered Coming Festival®, and I am going to tell you why!

Before I start complaining about it, I just want to let you know that I’m sick of it already! You’d think that after four years people would know about it and I’d have the freedom to spend my time looking for something better to do when the time comes around.

And it’s because of this that I refuse to like any more bands!

  1. Funny post. Love the ‘Hardly Bothered Coming’ title, but then again if you have the right attitude you can have fun anywhere you go.
